MotoGP » Rossi hails 'positive' podium return


@DRealDea Youre partly correct and partly wrong. A true appreciates all riders as all of the riders at this level are stars in their own right. You say that 2 championships is nothing to boast about but if it were so easy then why is it that since 2000 only Kenny Roberts Jr, Rossi, Hayden, Stoner and JLo are the only ones to have won a Championship with Rossi, Jlo, and Stoner being the only multi winners. Hell, winning ONLY ONE is ridicuously hard let alone 2.

MotoGP » Rossi hails 'positive' podium return


Amusing that most of the bandwagoneers on here were probably once Rossi fans themselves until he started winning so much. Similar to the Stoner haters that were once his biggest fans until he started making winning look too easy. I can only surmise that the same negative attitude toward Marquez will eventually surface by the same people who are singing his praises now. Rossi is legend no matter how you may look at him now. He has done what very few save Agostini has accomplished and is still competitive. All of you non racers would do well to just watch ,learn, and appreciate racing from the man instead of criticizing him because when he is gone we all who view Moto GP will be wishing he were still here.

F1 » F1 2013 POLL: Is it time to stop booing Sebastian Vettel?


People want competition, not dominance unless youre a fan of the one dominating and even then they want to be able to respect their champion elect if he has grace when winning, manners when speaking to the public , charisma to attract sponsors, and humility towards the sport that allows him to showcase his talent and compete against others like himself in the true spirit of competition. Maybe time will tell but maybe it is because many do not see a combination of these qualities in Vettel. Sometimes like a fine wine or beautiful art age brings about these qualities so maybe he has not had the time to truly understand what is expected of a champion.

F1 » Anti-Vettel heckling criticised by Horner and Lauda


I think the solution is simple for Vettel to stop the criticism and heckling, change teams and see if the wins continue. Not only will you win respect for taking on a new challenge but help to keep interest in F1 which will soon be waning should his streak continue. Moto GP suffered a similar fate when Michael Doohan was winning his Moto GP titles at all cost. Nobody bothered to watch because everyone knew who would win with the best rider on the best bike which opened the door for World Superbike to achieve the popularity it now enjoys because you never know who will win.

F1 » Anti-Vettel heckling criticised by Horner and Lauda


Fullofit September 23, 2013 3:17 PM I think Seb is clearly the best driver in F1 at the moment, & I had no problem with Michael or Ayrton pushing the limit & sometimes beyond in their competition with others ... but Seb is still part of a team, & in Malaysia he not only stuck a knife between Marks shoulder blades ... he put his own interests above 200+ other team members ... including his superiors. He then followed it up with tremendous arrogance when an apology would have been the appropriate thing to do. While I enjoy his driving & admire his skills on track, I am disappointed by his character. I'm not going to boo him, but people react differently to being let down. This domino effect should be a lesson to all sports icons that sometimes you can lose more even when you win. @ Fullofit, this is the single best most sensible and morally correct post i have ever read concerning Vettel.

MotoGP » Agostini or Hailwood? Lorenzo picks Rossi


I think it was very admirable for Jorge to say that it would be Rossi in legends group that he would hold in such high regard especially because he is going on personal experience in riding against him. One can only truly judge against those who had raced as opposed to what one would have seen or read or heard after the fact. I think that nowadays there is an amicable admiration for all of the riders at the top because they all are in such rare air to be racing at that level.

MotoGP » British MotoGP, Silverstone - Race Results


Lana "September 01, 2013 2:25 PM I find it hard to understand why Rossi is not able to stay with the top 3 guys in earlier part of races and than produce same lap times with the top 3 in the later part of the races...I just wonder what he can do if he could stay with the top 3 in the first ten laps or so.... Can someone give me a logical explanation...???!!..I dont think even Rossi knows...." @ Lana The reasons are simple 1 Age, Rossi approaching mid 30's Lorenzo, Dani, Marc early to mid 20's 2 Not the same bike as Lorenzo, if you'd been watching MOTO GP since the late 80's you'd know that the No 1 rider gets the best eqipment. 3 even with Rossi's pedigree the Yam has been developed to suit JLo style
