MotoGP » Czech Republic MotoGP, Brno - Friday practice (2)

Even when Ducati was supposedly a great bike, only Stoner won on it, see Malandri. The issue isn't that the Ducati is or was a bad a bike, the issue is does that fact and the fact that Stoner was blindingly fast and won on it, make him one of the greats. I submit that it does. Never understood why some Rossi fans have a problem with that. How does that diminish anything Rossi accomplished? I'm a Rossi fan but have nothing but respect for what Stoner has achieved. Anyway. Very pleased to see Dovi so close, maybe he can mix it up in the front. Let's hope so.

MotoGP » Andrea Dovizioso 'excited' by Ducati move

It's easy to say he's making a mistake going to Ducati, but really he has no other choice. His best chances for getting a factory ride at Yamaha or Honda have come and gone, that will never happen. Unless of course he's able to do well with Ducati and extend his motogp career. He does well in the next few years, he can write his ticket. Does poorly, he's back where he is now and more than likely out of motogp or at least a top factory ride.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It’ll be hard to beat Lorenzo

I can't see where he's playing mind games. He's older now and he knows this. He has spent two years on a bike he can't make work, which has taken a toll on him mentally, he know this. Lorenzo is riding better than anyone on the grid, and Rossi knows this. He's the number 2 rider for the first time in a long time, expectations for him a fairly low at this point and he knows this too. If he does well, challenges for wins and the championship, then that would be fantastic and exciting. If he does not, then that's ok, it doesn't diminish his accomplishments.

MotoGP » Redding: MotoGP 'the direction I need to go in'

We can't forget that Audi now own Ducati. What will they do with the motogp team? You have to assume that that they will keep it going, but they'll not be satisfied with the results of the last 2 years. That would favor any future rider. Seems to me that their only option is to continue the process they've already started of making their bike more like the Yam and Honda. At some point they'll have to change the engine to a 90 degree configuration and address the front end loading problems and handling in general. Redding's size and style seem to fit nicely with all those points, but as someone has said before, many have tried, only one has succeeded.

MotoGP » Redding: MotoGP 'the direction I need to go in'

Melandri was well off the pace on the Ducati and don't forget he went into the team as a motogp race winner and the presumptive number one rider over Stoner. Reddings times, from what we can gather, are impressive. How a rider will do when stepping up in class is always a crap shoot. I hope he does well, really well. We need some more aliens and who's to say at this point he can't be that. No one foresaw how well Stoner would do when he came up to motogp.
