MotoGP » Top ten most popular MotoGP races

Correction on the article: Assen wasn't a Sunday race. It will be as of this year. Also, it's clear that Valentino Rossi's title chance brought a lot of people to tracks and to their televisions. One can only hope that a closely fought title battle without Vale (but with Marquez for instance) can do the same, otherwise MotoGP in 5 to 10 years could be in quite a bit of trouble.

WSBK » Hayden, van der Mark a dream team – ten Kate

I wonder when the last time was that someone other than Rea won on a Honda. I certainly can't remember. Still, Ten Kate has occasionally troubled teams that totally outgun the Dutch outfit and that's commendable. Five podiums for a team that's practically a privateer team - that's way ahead of all the other privateer teams. I really hope Nicky can enjoy running in the top 5-10, lots of screentime for the American, for the first time since his Ducati years. Perhaps even a surprise performance at a few circuits, and then hopefully a decent ride in 2017. One thing's for sure: I'm not sick of him just yet.

MotoGP » Marquez: Title fight over as floating feeling returns

People blast him as if staying on the bike was his first priority. It wasn't. Up until today, Marquez still had a tiny, tiny chance at the title and to retain that chance he absolutely had to finish ahead of both Rossi and Lorenzo. It's the famous "win it or bin it" attitude. If Marquez had settled, he would have lost more points in the title fight and gained absolutely nothing. He had to risk it. Of course, he's said this several weekends in a row now, but apparently some fans just don't want to hear it. Now that his title fight is essentially over, he no longer needs to finish ahead of Rossi and Lorenzo and he can settle for podiums if conditions demand it. He has given this title fight everything he had, but the '15 engine is just too uncontrollable and sends the frame, rear tyres and everything into disarray. Hopefully, next year Honda will be able to create a more versatile bike again!

MotoGP » Group battle slows and frustrates Crutchlow

I thought during the race already, if anyone in that group is going to complain that scrapping leads to higher lap times it's Cal. I can understand the frustration - racing an FZR600R on trackdays leads to similar situations - but at this level I'd expect a different attitude. Especially since the pattern is that he's a top five rider at just about every weekend if it weren't for whatever reason that knocked him back (or off).
