MotoGP » Marquez: Strategy was to copy Dani and Valentino


Impressive as it is to see a new face on the scene shaking up the Moto gp hierarchy with an impressive streak it has become boring. There isnt even a question now as to who can stop MM because that question has been answered for some time now. They should give him the title right now and save the false drama. This has become processional and no amount of justification by fans of MM can change the minds of people who see the same end to races week after week. To those who would argue well what about when Jorge was winning his two titles, I would ask them do they remember Jorge stringing together 9 wins in a row? Even Rossi only had seven in a row for all the titles he's won and i believe the competition against the likes of Gibernau, Barros, Stoner, and Capirossi was stiffer week in and week out. You cant blame the manufacturer (Honda) for putting the best product out that they can and so I eagerly await 2016 for rule changes that should see the return of true competition. To those who

MotoGP » Rossi talks wrong tyre choice - Lorenzo, Marquez risks


Vale, JLo and Pedrosa all need to shadow MM for the race duration until the final five laps then lace em' up and prepare to throw down. Every race its the same, MM follows whoever is leading, just watching and learning where they are strong or weak and then after they wear their tyre out tring to get away (which isnt going to happen) he attacks and walks away. JLo is the only rider for which this strategy has worked bar Pedrosa at sachsenring or indianapolis last year. If these guys dont already know by now to flip the script on this kid then they might as well throw in the towel.

MotoGP » Marquez: MotoGP titles matter more than records


If Marquez were to have been using the same bikes that Rainey or Doohan raced on back in the day (without the aides) with his style pushing way over the limit he would probably be as banged up as Doohan or worse , wound up like Rainey sorry to say. Although the lad has talent, talent will only let you roll the dice but so far. I feel that the young gun is playing with a bull and when (not if) he gets the horns its gonna be really bad. No one expected a young talent like Spies to be where he ended up but that just proves it can happen to anyone. BTW I too am old enough to have seen the likes of Kenny Sr.,Lawson , Rainey, Schwantz, Doohan, so I have a idea of what I speak. Not here to co sign but Talent Fan has a valid point to anyone who has followed Grands Prix from the late 70's to its current incarnation.

MotoGP » Six races to decide Rossi's MotoGP future


Rooshooter November 27, 2013 12:02 PM @BRB Surely you don't think that Motogp will die cuz Rossi stops racing? When Mick won 5 years in a row then stopped, racing continued. Motogp is bigger than Rossi or anyone else for that matter. @ ROOSHOOTER Fact , when Mick was winning his championships Moto GP viewership was at an all time low. There have been several photos posted at tracks where the likes of Schwantz , Rainey , and even Mammola received standing ovations in winning races whereas Mick only received polite applause if that. Do not fool fool yourself. Moto GP is entertainment at its best in motorsport and it NEEDS a personality like Rossi to flourish because its champions have to be likable and great with the bike. If you want boring processionals go watch F1 and Vettel

F1 » Horner: No words for Vettel’s run


Richard, you have good points and i'll give you that but the first person that you want to beat is your team mate and so I have a great difficulty in believing that the cars are the "same" even if crew chiefs say so. The results do not back up your statement. Vettle is a very good driver, but so are the others that I've listed with all being prior world champions. For the sake of this discussion I will agree on the driver being more dedicated at this point with the combination of a superior car, deal?
