MotoGP » Rossi signs off with speedy simulation


herewego: Valentino has a point to prove and if he is fast and happy, he will be back to the rider we all know and love once again! It is a recipe for good racing as you know that with Valentino on form and at the front, it isn't going to be lacking in excitement. The only thing missing at the moment is Marc Marquez, but when he is back it will only add more fuel to the fire! As a fan of Valentino, I am hoping he can win another title, shut the doubters up, and prove to those you have no faith that he is still the best racer ever !!! Go Vale !!!!
Vale actually has nothing to prove... but he does have some mouths to shut! however there is nothing to go back to...he never left..he is every bit the rider he was before he jumped on the Ducati..he just has the equipment to show that now!

MotoGP » Rossi signs off with speedy simulation


What baffles me is that at the first Valencia test where he was like 15th on Ducati in 2010 people acted as if he was washed up, when just the day before he was on the podium!!! (I got it though..the big talk about 80 secs just came back and bit them when they realized what a pig the Duc was!!!) but many expect us to believe that he literally lost ability or talent overnight!!! If anything Ducati should bear a brunt of shame for taking a winner/contender and making him into a 6th place guy...he came back to Yamaha and won and podiumed more in one season than he had in 2 years at Ducati! Now he is leading testing... I mean we will see at the end of the year if this bears fruit but this is a good start (keeping in mind this was a tyre test not a normal test session which means the results here really carry little weight). Cal never worked on a fast lap and never used his preffered tyre for the fast lap he did set and he was 3rd....so we will see... when the flag drops the BS stops!!!

MotoGP » Bridgestone confident of avoiding Phillip Island repeat


Bridgestone brought two front and eight rear specifications of slick tyre to the test.. Whether they were intending to find a fix for the front tire as well is arguable, I do not believe they had a major issue with the front tire last year. It seems Crutchlow's front tire issue was isolated but at any rate it would be a point of concern.... Bridgestone gets a bad rep because there is nobody else to blame..when they were spanking Michelin and riders started jumping ship...everyone blasted Michelin and praised Bridgestone so it is just a matter of process.. crap happens...I think we should applaud them for attempting to rectify it with this test..... we also see that Dunlop was also caught out..so any tire manufacturer could have been caught out last year with the changes at PI!!

MotoGP » Official: Movistar returns to MotoGP with Yamaha


Peter Light: Not the first time Rossi has had Movistar paint on his bike looking at that picture.....
As obvious as your point was.... I had to think about it for a few secs... because I was about to debate that Vale never ran under the Telefonica banner before.... so where did the paint come from???....oooooo got it! hahahahaha too funny Yeah.. I can be a little slow...funny considering I like racing!!

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty to test Suzuki MotoGP bike


I know there will be the argument/concern of cost because the restrictions came about because of cost and worldwide economics...so I agree that there has to be rules especially to maintain parity....it is most likely the reason for testing limitatons which can be drastic or expensive So my idea is this... instead of unlimited testing...how about 18 (same number as races) open tests (if you want to participate)...specifically after each grand prix and only on the track that they just completed the race weekend. We could bring that down to 12 or something in number because of the back to back races and the logistics of moving equipment in 1 week....but I figure they are already there so flight and equipment shipping cost are not an issue!! In fact Dorna could request a testing schedule from each team ahead of time to understand the logistics of moving teams around the world! Of course to make it sensible there would have to be some minimum attendance limit such as 40% or 50%. So as not

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty to test Suzuki MotoGP bike


Everything needs to go to OPEN...ncluding Suzuki, we are all hung up on "Factory Status" and what constitute prototype racing. It seems to me that the OPEN concept removes a lot of restrictions that is KILLING prototype racing...engine development freeze, limited engine use, fuel restrictions (to an extent), minimal tyre selection (well at least they have one more tyre..lol) and limited testing....but the best thing of all is what many race fans on here have been begging for since 2006/2007... control the electronics!!!...minimize it, cut the cost, and make it equal for everyone. Seems Marelli's control software and hardware does this very thing!! So the question is what is the problem with OPEN class? for me, get rid of the control tyre and possibly make it 15 engines per season and this would be great!!! but 12 is a reasonable concession in light of cost!
