MotoGP » Rossi puts boot into 'boring' MotoGP

I'm not convinced that a novice rider should even be riding a high horsepower sport bike. That's the way it works in the UK. I suppose you could argue that TC would be a benefit to novice riders on lower CC bikes, but I'm not sure those bikes even come with TC do they? Most street riders on 600 and 1,000 cc bikes are way out of their element. I don't even ride on the street anymore, I find it sort of boring, I prefer to race. Anyway, I think getting rid of TC in Motogp would be a good start if better racing is goal. Also, this is not the first time Rossi has said this. If memory serves, he has said the same things back when he was contending for race wins.

MotoGP » Pedrosa, Stoner: It had to stop

@ truefan. I don't think so. That picture is deceiving. I'll watch the end again, but it sure looked to me like Stoner never got a wheel up on Lorenzo and down the straight Lorenzo pulled out a decent lead on Stoner, it was only then that the read flag came out. Also, they always revert back to the last full lap, so if they had stopped the race one lap later, Lorenzo would have finished ahead of Stoner.

MotoGP » Pedrosa, Stoner: It had to stop

Stoner was not along side Lorenzo and Lorenzo actually pull out a good distance after the last turn bobble, so it is true that if the race went one more lap the order would be the same. Also, the red flag did not come out right when Lorenzo put his hand up. The idea that race control saw him put his hand up and they instantly put out the red flag to protect his point lead is ludicrous and not how races are delt with. They did it to protect the riders.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Sepang title shot too slim to contemplate

Engines could definitely decide the championship. Maybe it's not fair, but those are the rules and all the designers knew them and should have accounted for all the possible scenarios. You used to have to design an engine that lasted a race, now it's multiple races, there's really no difference in terms of design, either way it's taking it as far and as fast as you dare and still being able to finish.

MotoGP » Rossi: 'Slowest of the three but we have to try'

If anything has been proven regarding Ducati, it's that it has never been a good bike. Sorry Rossi fans. The Edwards situation is interesting, I remember him going off on how he was not getting the same parts as Rossi. I fully expect Rossi to do better next year, but I'm not sure he'll be winning again, certainly not with the same regularity as before. Should that happen, I reckon the excuse will be he's gotten older Those first gen 800 Honda's were pretty crappy! A wet race would make things interesting, I'm all for that.

MotoGP » Ducati not sure what’s in store at Sepang

I completely agree with your comments Codger. The idea that racing still develops technology for the road has long since passed. It would be great to open up the series to different tyre manufactures. Make them use a production tyre and maybe stipulate that it must last 3 races. Get rid of the exotic brakes as well, those could never be used on the road. I'm ok with some of the electronics, but only those could be used on the street. Manufactures that succeed could then legitimately leverage their success on the track to the marketing efforts of street riding products.
