MotoGP » French frustrations masked Moto2 progress


Its very easy to sit in the comfort of your sofa and with the hindsight of replay's/slow mo and commentary to easily point the figure BUT the lad was out putting in lap after lap pushing up the grid and Pons was gettin a tow plain and simple but Brad let him follow then out of nowhere(as has been said) he was taken out with 100% pons error. Had pons slid into him or hit him from behind while still on is irrelvant the fault was his and Bradley was rightly frustrated and just made a point, No harm no foul, not quite as bad as Marquez at Estoril though taking Redding out!!

MotoGP » Lorenzo waiting on Yamaha


if this was true (Rider not developing a bike) then how come the first thing Prezziono wanted to hear was Rossi opinion on the Duke. And now they are making changes based on his and JB feedback. A lead rider (Rossi/JLO/DANI/STONER) is just that, they lead the team and the bike development throughout, an engineer can only make and create stuff based on someone else telling him (and technical knowledge). If the 2012 Yam is poor then Jlo can only partly blame himself (unless Yamaha completely ignore his comments) which would be stupid as!!! Simply more power is a derigour rider statement, it can not always be the option and alot of the time is not, look at the Aprili Cube to show that example to a tea!!

MotoGP » Lorenzo waiting on Yamaha


Got too interject here on a couple of things. Ben Spies is NOT performing not matter which way you cut it he knows it, Yamaha know it and even his fans know it. 6th (being beaten by a ride through Simoncelli) actually should have been 7th but could have easily been 8th or 9th had Colin and Cal stayed on. He QF LAST yam on a Yam track. Can he turn it around? Of course but I and alot of people said this about JT (and he never got Factory equipment) so the pressure is on for Ben to AT LEAST podium very soon. Yam power!! No that bike is fast and still the most stable (looking at it) but it has deficit to the Honda for sure but not 27 seconds on this track, Jorge cannot be blamed for the lack of power, but he can be blamed for not making the most of the bike's best abilities. Last year he was quoting the Power issue was outweighed by the handling, how come it so bad now. Rossi and Burges are team that can develop a bike (totaly disagree with the Rider does not develop the bike) How so if

MotoGP » Stoner: My thoughts are with Dani


"But that said the 2007 Duke was made for him by Sete and Capa" Yes of course they did....all riders develop the bike they are on for their team mates now don't they. Please try a bit harder next time...that is a totally ridiculous statement. Posted by BLOAT46 - Unregistered (19 hours ago) Right for the dumb people like yourself who are too tied up h8ting anyone making any comment about their rider. my statement was a fact on the Bike was DEVELOPED by Sete and Capi in that Stoner Had NO involvement in the bike at all first he saw was at Sepang with Capi so he just does what he does best (get on and ride it fast). See simple when just read a comment without any rose tinted/H8 glasses on!!

MotoGP » Stoner: My thoughts are with Dani


whoo children please..please!! Stoner is Fast no doubt and the guy could ride a tricycle within 5 seconds of a lap record. That is Stoner sheer talent and skill he is able to ride at 10/10ths on anything with 2 wheels and a Handlebar (still one of my favourite quotes from him). But that said the 2007 Duke was made for him by Sete and Capa (more so Sete) with Gibs lapping Motegi on its first outing faster than the then lap record (2006) on it so they made a great bike As anyone can see. Stoner's only real weakness is himself and his balls out style, he has no margin for error which has been consistent his whole career (rookie season being the extreme example). I really hope that Dani does get fit (seem to say this every few months) and can come back strong as really it as predicted at the start of the year can only really be a 2 man race, Honda WILL be WC just a question of who will ride the chariot!!

MotoGP » Lorenzo waiting on Yamaha


RawDawg Totaly agree that Honda has the grunt over ALL the other bikes on the grid no question, the point I was trying to make was that the Duke is equally as slow/slower than the Honda Yet Jorge is missing he was also beaten by Rossi. I just think that Jorge is convinced that only a new engine will do. Maybe Yamaha can give him a placebo Engine at Catalunya and see what happens. On spies Glad you said that and not me, BUT I agree it seems the second year in seems to be the harderst. When the Yam bites you it seems to hurt for a long time and Ben does seem to be further away now than he was last year, MAYBE he can pull some back but maybe the Engine thing and struggling to understand how Jorge does it (now seeing the factory and Sat bikes are not that far apart maybe). Truth be told unless Yamaha find a clear direction to go in they may simply go backwards in 2012 a whole new bike could be a Win or Bin year for them Hell even Honda get it VERY wrong *cough* 2007..*cough!Cough*

MotoGP » Dani Pedrosa: I don’t deserve this


Really do feal for dani, The "incident" was indeed more Marco's fault that Dani's and the outcome was harsher than the crime but the ride-through in MHOP was ill-judged and pointless and only really happened due to A) the rider in question and b) the injury suffered. Anyone who has watched Marco through 125/250 knows he has always been very reckless with some passes(not that this one was massively bad) I think Mugello or Barcelona was one where he took himself and Bautista out was a massive dur moment. BUT this is a trate that can be dropped..not long ago Jorge was haulled up b4 race direction and fined and Banned i recall in 05 at motegi for smacking into dani and taking out de-angelis (i think). Hell even yesterday his move on Dovi could be deemed more reckless than dani/marco yet jorge was scott free..Ditto rossi in Jerez. This was a reaction to all the fuss about overtakes and Marco was an easy target but Dani really paid the price

Sorry I am not buying this (the yam is too slow) it looked pretty fast up the home straight to go past Dovi and arguably the Duke has the same power deficit and handles worse yet he was beaten by Rossi. I reckon that in contrast to Honda this year (who now have 4 riders all pushing each other on as the Bike excuse is gone) Yamaha are having the opposite where a rookie on a Sat yam nearly QF top Yamaha at a Widely regarded Yam track and Jorge home turf (2 for 2 now Lorenzo land reclaimed to Honda land). Jorge has no push from a equal/better rider (Rossi) as Ben is (not stab here just fact) really NOT performing at all so jorge own reason for issue MUST be the bike. If Ben was doing anything on it Jorge would be higher, he seems to need a carrot or foundation to prove he CAN. Honda have 4 solid Carrots all riding infront of each other, Yamaha have Jorge and ironicly the British Rookie as Carrot/Motivation. Engine or not Jorge is pressured, that No1 must be heavy!!

MotoGP » French MotoGP, Le Mans - Friday practice (1)


Not really set in "Stone" who will do what here. At Estoril Marco dominated and Stoner and Dani were 50/50 in all 4 and yet Danni whupped everyone and never did a standout run in practice or QF. My prob with stoner is he has gone back to how he was a before a "world is against me" attitude and everyone needs to give him space!. Also Crap about how he was treated at Ducati, tell me again Ducati treated there best rider who won them their first WC with contempt and listen to nothing he had to say and gave him nothing??!!??. They changed Electronics/farings/swingarms even frames mid season for him. Sorry but most likely the issue was his feedback was not specific enough, the dummy comes out to much with Stoner. Not a rossi fan but most likely with JB and VR the feedback is specific and given the team actual areas to fix and target. I would not bet against the 2012 Duke being the new "Yamaha" and then everyone will want a ride on it!!

MotoGP » Yamaha courting Moto2 leader Stefan Bradl?


Ermmm.. I do not know I think ppl are having short memories. Not 2 rounds ago Lavery chucked his R1 down the rode not 20 feet from me at donington and Marco was the hero of the day (ironicly Max beat himself there too) and laverty looked to be struggling. NOW eugene has had a good race and rode superbly and everyone his calling him up. Too soon to see if this was another Cal moment (ala silverstone) or a real turning point for Eugene as i fan of his since BSB and how unlucky he was to finish 2nd in SS last year after 8 wins i really want him too but lets wait till Checa town (miller) is over and see how he has faired. I agree through that Iahone looks to be the real threat and likely champ in Moto 2 this year but Bradl is a better bet from a commercial view (moto gp is still a business after all) we have Rossi and Simon AND Dovi in the big class another Italian is not required (and Italians LOVE SBK nearly as much as GP's anyway)!!
