MotoGP » Hayden ‘gradually’ recovering wrist strength


I think Nicky's exit from Ducati came at the wrong time but with the false hope of production Honda...he took the leap of faith.. even Aleix Esparago was upset (at the time) that he did not stay with Aspar now they have a Proddy Honda... I wonder how Aleix is feeling about that decision now!! With the concessions of the Open Ducati I believe Nicky would have shone this year along with Dovi! but that is in the past now...the hope is that the new engine or "old" new engine next year deliver the goods... and I believe in speed it will but will the chassis be any good for that engine? Obviously the chassis is not the same as Factory so they will gain outright speed but I believe they will lose more in handling.. cannot just toss a bunch of power to a bike and not develop a chassis to handle the power and flex where and when needed....

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati not ready to win


Cont'd... The new incoming teams needed to be able to test and develop so unlimited testing for new and struggling teams without wins or podiums is a fair compromise to keep the interest and the competition alive... The engine freezing would be stupid if you had unlimited testing because you could not change crap that you found during testing if the engine was frozen in development for the year (factory rules)..so those 2 go hand in hand. I am on the fence about the extra fuel... I think the way of the world is fuel efficiency and this is a good development but engineering and money lies with factories having the advantage so it would be hard for independent teams to keep afoot with factories with fuel restrictions...so I understand why this was given but no factory team should be given this concession IMO because they need to develop a fuel efficient engine and they have unlimited testing and additional engine changes to accomplish this.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati not ready to win


YOu might disagree but it is these concessions that are pulling back more factories to the series.... so, I understand the diehard fan side of the story...we all want fair competition and we, die-hard fans will NEVER stop watching motorcycle racing because we love it...but "Money makes the world go 'round" and this MotoGP circus is also a business that needs finances to bring the show to different venues around the world. Something needed to be done to encourage more participation and as I see it...that Is happening now with Aprilia and Suzuki returning... and Aprilia moving forward its racing plans by a year... The restrictions were too much of a handicap for new teams (factory or not) but without the restrictions the cost of racing was too great!! so a medium had to be accomplished and we all have varying ideas of what that should be...I think as a factory team Ducati and all others coming in should race on the same rubber. No extra soft...and give them the factory hard!

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati not ready to win


MLF: So at the moment duc can qualify well and get in the way for the race because of their concessions. What now more concessions,more power /fuel softer tyres ,ECUs ,development . Stop this handicap system,even if Duc won it is in a different class. Oh I know ,lets give them a 1 lap start . BS was ninth lets give him a soft tyre and more fuel .
Well let's not get carried away...I agree to an extent.. all these riders were on the same tyre set up for the race...so fair ride by Dovi. YES! I know he had more fuel but I think that was his only advantage if it was even a factor.. Anyway, IMHO ducati should only have the testing and engine change advantage (its still not fair, but it was needed) for the improvement of the show.

MotoGP » Marquez's career was almost over in 2011


Sorry..it was not oil on the track but a wet track.... PS Marc would have been champion that year...but that is only a what if....however..I think most would agree that he was on track to beat Bradl and Bradl was having a weak second half to the season.... As he had not won in quite a few races where MM was the opposite..frequent crashes in the beginning of 2012 moto2 but strong latter half until the crash that injured his eye...

MotoGP » Marquez: I was scared, but I am only human too


lux: Though it must take time something away from the world championship celebration if you don't actually win the race?
Not sure what your reference is but many championship titles were won in the smart way where the rider settled for what he needed to secure the championship...Marquez did the same last year...got what he needed to win the title...Jorge in 2010, Sepang settled for 4th and the title, and 2012, I believe he also wrapped up the title without the win.. so this is normal... Sure a win with the title is great but he has time to achieve that as Rossi did with some of his titles. With him all settled and the championship out of the way he has 3 races to break Doohan's record....

MotoGP » Marquez's career was almost over in 2011


Motojunky:
TalentFan: I thought he picked that eye jnjury up in the crash when he t-boned Wilairot and badly injured the Thai rider while ignoring rules and flags and running at race pace when he should have been touring?
I didn't know that bit of info, and was wondering why they never mentioned how the eye injury happened. Trust the fans to come up with the facts.
That eye injury had nothing to do with the Wilairot crash.....separate incidents and unrelated..... His eye injury happened in Sepang 2012 when he was lapping on his own in either practice or qualifying...marshals at the track were blamed for the incident as they did not ( for whatever reason) put out waving flags for a wet, I believe it was oil on track from a previous faller.

MotoGP » Magic Marquez always destined for the top


See my posting on the ....Rossi "Happy and Satisfied" with front row... thread.. her is what I posted yesterday....see below It looks to me that Rossi is top three on pace with Lorenzo looking the strongest of the BIG 4..... I think Rossi may be holding out a little on what he has in the bag but there is no mistaken what is on paper and right now JLo and MM are looking strongest... I want Rossi to win but I believe he will be happy with 3rd tomorrow since Pedrosa and Dovi are looking good and strong as well. If Rossi breaks well off the line he will hold them up for a few laps but I think JLO and MM will come past after 10 laps...I believe Dovi will lead initially... with less to risk...he will go into turn 1 all out.... Well...lol.. that's my crystal ball prediction...but like the lotto...I get it wrong most times... GO for the WIN ROSSI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
