MotoGP » ‘Biggest weekend’ for Marc VDS

alanw5293: RSMick, The point Hodgson was making when he said it ,was be careful what you wish for! It ain't always better than what you already have,that in other hands they look better but not with yourself.
You mean like I have said twice now? (not sure about your last sentence though) I also posted something similar a couple of months ago, Scott keeps learning the hard way as he did with his equal weight complaints. Edwards used to say, "its a lot easier to get within half a second of these guys, than the last few tenths where they make the difference that is the problem"

MotoGP » ‘Biggest weekend’ for Marc VDS

alanw5293: Neil Hodgson said last year that he had longed to get the chance to race a works Yamaha and when he got it he went slower. Scott had the slow Proddy bike last year and made Bautista look quite poor at times.Why wouldn't you think,"if only I had that bike"!
No reason what so ever, but like I say be careful what you wish for, especially publically! But the remember Bautista was on Showa and Nissin as well, and you have given the reasons why Scott may be struggling because the bike is a bitch to set up, add those 2 elements in as well how do you think Bautista felt? As for Hodgson he went from a ROC Yam to a factory bike from Roberts at Brno and qualified on the front row, then went backwards. The deal was only because Roberts were the only factory on Dunlops, after his 7th at Donny, the truth is though James Hayden was a lot quicker that race.

MotoGP » ‘Biggest weekend’ for Marc VDS

JasonLewis: U guys are missing the point here. The point is: It's good to be Mark van der Straten
Its also very good to have Marc van der Straten in motorsport. As for Redding, its the old case of 'be careful what you wish for', just like Biaggi in 2005, if I have this if I have that I can beat these guys, it doesn't always work like that. Despite what some say on this site its no use having the best if you can't use it, which where the aliens can, sometimes its just to easy to say its the bike, but the level of the bike may just suit. Its not just Reddings problem though, the majority of the team are fresh to MotoGP and Honda, a very steep learning curve. Karel Abraham has the equipment Redding had last year that he claimed was holding him back, but keeping very quiet about the effects because their money keeps him racing.

MotoGP » Power Electronics re-joins Aspar

Duct Tape on the leathers?
A little difficult to rectify that at such short notice in the Middle East, I would have thought the Alpine Stars paddock support was limited as well. Strange this, Power Electronics adorned the belly pan of the fairing in Qatar, and some of the Euro and Stateside GP's last year. No-one else is running this story.

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?

Sorry to upset you Yearby but the things Barros asked for in 2003 was refused by Yamaha becuase their engineers would only have the bike set up the way they desinged it to be, Rossi asked for the same things and they did it, because it was in his contract, part of normal negotiations these days. It was well documented at the time by Larsson. Stoners genius was that it was a similar situation that the Ducati was designed by engineers who wouldn't really listen to the riders, Stoner just got on it and ragged it, masking all the problems it had, just like Wayne Rainey and Wayne Gardner.

MotoGP » Pedrosa undergoes 'complicated' surgery

Autonomous: Research Alberto Puig's career in particular the last 3 years. Sorry to say but Pedrosa's GP career is pretty much done.
Some of us remember his career well after he took Pons bike after Pons never recovered from injury, his win at Jerez ended up a wild party after he beat Criville after Doohan crashed out, never seen such a crazy crowd. Well except Jerez 96 when the crowd invaded before the end of the race and Doohan forced Criville to highside. Stoner posted a tweet saying "it would have been an honour to stand in for Danny, but not meant to be" Good on him
