MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It was not enough


Rossi has said this 15 minute shoot out format does not suit him. His qualifying record has gotten drastically worst since it's introduction...Rossi was never a master at Qualifying but certainly he was always on the first 2 rows in his earlier Yamaha days... hearing him left out in 12th or worse during FP is just ridiculous.. with that said...the soft tyres are putting many more riders in the front...remove this and he would be on the first or second row consistently.. but again all the riders are dealing with it and Lorenzo and MM are in 3rd and 4th for qualifying so bottomline, Rossi needs to improve this...the rules cannot and should not be changed for 1 person...no matter how passionate our desire to see him win.....

MotoGP » Caught out Marquez left with ‘nothing to lose’


quinna: @sendingoutofspace did CS really said this about MM?. This might be the reason cs did not replaced dp during his injury
That statement is misrepresented...CS said MM profited for first title since JL and DP were both injured. He was a little lucky and he took advantage and gained some better results than if JL or DP were present or without injury...Stoner said MM totally dominated 2014 with the added help of experience. It was not a disrespect....more of an objective assessment. Stoner said he knew what was wrong with the Honda but could not say....

MotoGP » Rossi has led 4 laps, Lorenzo 91


Great job to Lorenzo...every rider can only race using their strength and he is doing it...action speak louder than words. I am a Rossi fan and I also remember the days Rossi would lead most laps and have the fastest lap records at many tracks....it is true that his qualifying record has never been stupendous but this 15 minute format has really handicapped him or he has not adapted well to it....regardless...Rossi is suffering from a weakness and has to use his strength to make up the deficiency.... no different than what any rider would do if possessed the ability and the machinery...Lorenzo is doing the same..we saw how he struggled in the first 3 races and he turned that around and worked the strategy he knows best and is now dominating... Good job to both Lorenzo and Rossi!!! Now go VR 46 and make this a fight!!!!!

MotoGP » Rossi: Yamaha, Honda, Ducati almost at same level


VKal Do you remember the shrinking grids?.... Ducati were on the cusp of leaving if there was no change...the old rules punished those who fell behind...and Ducati was in this position.... People are always comparing Yamaha's 12 years of not winning a title(1992 - 2004) but forget that development and testing in those days were unlimited...this was the reason, Rossi could do what he did in 2004...he and Furusawa could make all the changes and development they needed without restrictions...their only restriction was Honda would not release Rossi from his contract to test at the end of the 2003 season...Yamaha at least won races except in 2003...Ducati has not won a race in 5 years!!!

MotoGP » Rossi: Yamaha, Honda, Ducati almost at same level


VKal:
onetwothree: SoSlo 1.The rules were agreed not imposed........
The rules are developed to get new players in like Suzuki. Ducati is not a new player. In fact, they were competing as factory class and had all the knowhow at their disposal unlike others like Suzuki, Aprilia etc, who has less experience to compete at factory development level. These are loop holes in the rules which Dorna intentionally left it open. It’s similar to civil laws, there are many who got away with murder on technicality but not because they didn’t do the crime. Does that mean it changes the fact? Would Ducati have so many podium finishes this year without the extra concession, that the question? I don’t think
Half correct...it was also to keep manufacturers in, like Ducati and Suzuki who left because they were not competitive and the expenditure was too much....

We can all agree that if the sport died out because of the old path they were on...you same die hard lot on here would be the first to cry for DORNA's head...something had to be done...it was...and the health of the sport has never been better... Long story short...debate is fine but this bashing of the rules and ducati needs to stop as it was a necessary compromise that is now producing one of the best seasons in almost 6 years or more depending on your perspective.

MotoGP » Rossi: Yamaha, Honda, Ducati almost at same level


This story is proof that you cannot please everyone: 1. If end of last year, I said Rossi would lead the championship all the way up to this point...I would have been walked to the gallows.. 2. If end of last year I said, and MM would be 49 points behind Rossi at this stage...I would have been stoned to death 3. If I had said MM would only be 5th with 1 win at this stage...I would have been laughed at to death.. 4. If I had said Honda would be 3rd in the standings and struggling in 2015...I would have been dismembered 5. If I had said Ducati would be on the podium 5 out of the 6 first races with mostly 2nd places...most would have disagreed!! Point is this year is the most unpredictable and most exciting.. concessions or not, and we are still in a stepping stone phase of equalizing the rules for the future of the sport and people are still pissed off....what else is DORNA to do? MotoGP is heading in the right direction.

MotoGP » Lorenzo ‘never thought this would be possible’


07 Got beat by Stoner 10/18 wins on a bike Rossi could not ride! Err...unqualified statement...the 2007 Ducati was a better and completely different bike to all the other years...notice Stoner's consistent decline in performance...We do not and cannot know what Rossi could have done on it. "So yeah, all credit to Rossi for taking those championships back then but I don't think he could replicate such success if riders the quality of Lorenzo, Stoner, Marquez and Pedrosa had been around. Just my opinion" PS Rossi did beat Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa and took titles in 2008 and 2009 CONSECUTIVELY!!!....LOL not sure you thought that one out...MM is the only one Rossi has not beaten to a title but the year is young!!

MotoGP » Lorenzo ‘never thought this would be possible’


Sete: Led every lap in the last 3 races says it all! Odds on favorite to take the lead in the championship this weekend.
Are you suggesting that Rossi cannot even get second place? because by my hill billy math....If Rossi is second...it doesn't matter if Lorenz leads every single lap....he will not assume the title lead... with that said...I would not go as far as assume odds on favorite, for the title lead to JL....but I will agree about the win...hope Rossi can upset his momentum....we cannot count out MM yet either...

MotoGP » Rossi: Yamaha, Honda, Ducati almost at same level


VKal: Joeski Yamaha argument is not valid, different rule and time. Now, we got two rules where factory teams are handicapped from development and others can develop. Doesn't change the fact that the concession helped Ducati! Proof to me that Ducati can win without this concessions?
Missing the point... development and change was possible in the season, mistakes can be recovered from through permitted changes which allowed teams to catch up if they fell behind due to wrong direction development... etc...I agree with you n general about the concessions but the engine freeze and limited testing is stupid...but it was a cost cutting effort back in 2007 (or whenever) when it was introduced...
