WSBK » Fabrizio returns to Ducati machinery for Imola


sethgator: Toni Elias would've been a better option, it still blows my mind that the official Ducati test rider Luca Scassa has yet to make a race appearance when there have now been 5 replacement rides on Ducatis.
Elias could be good...but has never ridden a Ducati WSBK... so nothing to gain there... I believe the team, manager etc know Michel and he has massive amounts of experience with Duc and would give better feedback for development than Elias... this could prove fruitful for the team and Terol when he gets back...and then add in Michel's ability to pull a ride of a lifetime out of a hat every now and then...nothing to lose here....

MotoGP » Dovizioso: One of the toughest for Ducati


Dovi is being cautious in his statement. The GP15 works well so far at different tracks but Jerez is tighter and relies less on that HP advantage but if the turning and that front end is that much better, then I suspect he will have a better time at this track than in the past...not to mention he is riding much better and with confidence... Podium contention IMO...

WSBK » Fabrizio returns to Ducati machinery for Imola


On his day Fabrizio is dangerously fast...I do not agree that "he does not have the desperation anymore".... these guys all desire to compete at the top... I might be inclined to believe that he is not the most talented and coupled with his inconsistency he is never in with a shout of the title!! but for a wild card replacement... there could hardly be a better choice as he is still hungry and has experience...especially of a factory Ducati... Althea may need and could do with the feedback to help Terol.... ....But that I just an opinion.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez confirmed for Jerez


Teaser story that we all knew had one outcome....there was never a doubt! MM is good at Jerez but I think this year Rossi may have something in the bag for him. Of course, us Rossi fans hate when injuries come into play because the win is never counted as fair or deserving.... PS with that said MM could walk this one as well then the injury will only serve to make him more heroic...and deservedly so if he wins. Anyway...it has been years since we have been in such a state of uncertainty because die-hard fans of any rider cannot say anything without serious doubt...I want Rossi to win but who knows with MM, Rossi, Dovi and AD on form...and will JLo bring it this weekend!!??? we just do not know...CC has also done well here on the tech3 I think, and he is looking good at the moment as well...roll on MotoGP!!!!

MotoGP » Rossi and Marquez: Racing incident


Codger: In Warmup Marc tried out both tyres back to back, He was slightly quicker than Rossi on the Extra Hard and much, much quicker on the Hard. I smell a bovine deposit, Marc took a punt on the Hard and it backfired on him. Simple as that.
Double check your information...MM, Crutchlow and Livio all said that no one had the pace of Rossi on the extra hard...Crutchlow said that Rossi did some 12-15 laps in low 39s (during WUP, I think) and no one had that pace...hence the Formula 1 Honda strategy with LCR....

MotoGP » Rossi and Marquez: Racing incident


P.S. Redding now also have a little regret not using the softer option...so it seems to me that Rossi was the sole difference on the extra hard...as Jorge struggled. Smith did well on the extra hard but is in 6th while Cal on the hard was on the podium... I believe Rossi would have won under any condition...meaning whatever tyre MM chose...he had the fastest lap of the race eventhough MM was on the softer tyre which would have conceivably given him the advantage of a fast lap time especially earlier on...MM created a 4 second gap early but still did not take the lap record. "What ifs" are useless but had he not crash..I believe he would have lost by 1.5-2.0 seconds..which still put Rossi almost 4 seconds faster than the dominant MM last year over race distance. The fastest lap time should have been set on the hard compound...but was not!!...respect to MM but this was Rossi's race.

MotoGP » Rossi and Marquez: Racing incident


Codger: It may well be that both Ducatis would have done even better if they had access to the Extra hard tyre. Bloody tyres, I'm sick of races being dictated by tyre choice.
I guess you have been tired for a long time...because as far as I know and have seen, tyre choice has always played the biggest factor in motorcycle racing... it was this reason that they (DORNA) went single tyre supplier... to eliminate the disparity between brands and make the same tyres available to everyone... although admittedly with the concession era..there has been some tyre disparity but no different than when Michelin dominate over BStones and Dunlop...if you were not on Michelin you lost and then BStones stepped up and if you were not on them you lost...tyres... the single most important factor in bike racing...doesn't matter if you have the best kit or not!!

MotoGP » Rossi and Marquez: Racing incident


Codger: Joeski.......Rossi was 5th fastest in warmup so Marc had other riders to worry about not just Rossi. If Cal said 12-15 laps in the low ... It does make you wonder though, if it was that obvious what made Marc come to the grid on the Extra Hard ??
Thanks for the update...I only took MM, Livio and Cal's words as gospel... I suspect that the issue was the temperature...they intended to race the extra hard...but with cooler temps putting them in the window where either could work they decided the softer option was better as...they...stated Rossi had an incredible pace that they could not match on the extra hard..in that situation I think they made the correct choice...2nd - 4th were on the softer option..if MM had not crash that would mean 2nd - 5th on the hard...so it is difficult to say it was not a competitive choice..

MotoGP » Moto3: Fenati apologises for Ajo attack


Ajo obviously did something that he was unaware of....maybe he pulled in front of Romano and he had to hit the brakes hard which almost tossed him....but he was not angry for "absolutely no reason"....with that said...he could have handled it better...but he is how old???? these boys are not all men yet just because they are racing motorbikes...they are just good at motorbikes!!! They will learn....eventually...some more than others but this is human nature!
