MotoGP » Sam Lowes linked to MotoGP with Aprilia


Take it, take their arms off as well. Moto2 is not the place you want to stay in for too long, if you can get out get out, if it's to MotoGP all the better. Teams are starting to look at Moto3 for MotoGP riders now, Miller has shown he isn't out of his depth missing out the middle class (interest from MotoGP for Kent as well) and Moto3 bikes are seen as developing the MotoGP way of riding better than Moto2.

MotoGP » Smith, Espargaro, Nakasuga fastest at final Suzuka test


Doobie: I wouldn't be one bit surprised if Katsuyuki set the quickest time! Should be an interesting race.
Poorly translated by google from response.jp suggests Espargaro set the quickest time. "strongest contender is Japan's fastest Nakasuka's YAMAHA FACTORY RACING TEAM of Espargaro and Smith of active MotoGP rider. Nakasuka is doing the test schedule as the main the making machine, Espargaro and Smith continued to energetically running in order to get familiar with the course and the machine. And Espargaro is 2 minutes 07 seconds 995 was recorded in 14 days and overall top time in both days. Smith has also been steadily increasing the time, appeal that the ready."

MotoGP » Poncharal: Right now, I’d keep Smith and Espargaro


Hogboy: Smith seems like a nice, thoughtful rider but I rarely see killer instinct. In many cases he gets a dynamite start and then slowly and very politely works his way down the field.
That's because he's a great starter and has got himself in front of faster factory spec bikes. He can't do much about factory Yamaha, Honda and Ducati power, although if you watched the last race he overtook Pedrosa more than once, his team mate and Aleix Esp. So if he made normal starts and finished where he does now, behind only the top factory bikes you wouldn't notice it.

F1 » Wolff sympathetic over Williams’ tactical dilemma


Williams know Mercedes is at least a second a lap faster, I think Williams were racing Ferrari but were being pushed along faster by Mercedes messing up their tyre plans to ensure best strategy to beat Ferrari. The rain just added more trouble. If the start had been a normal start the Williams would have been running 3 & 4 in the race behind the two Mercedes (which gap them and the rest of the field) and they would have raced to their tyre wear plan and secured a podium,

MotoGP » Official: Marco Melandri splits from Aprilia


RealDrWho:
DBL: It's the Elias effect, doesn't like the bike, so doesn't want to ride it, doesn't want to sort the problem and doesn't want to change his riding style. With Elias it was always the tyres and with Melandri it's the 2nd time he's sulked at the back in MotoGP whilst being outperformed by his team mate.
It were the tyres, Elias 2006 win at Estoril came after a certain Honda rider rejected the "A" choice tyre and Elias got them instead of the regular "B" choice.
I meant in Moto 2, dominates one year terrible the next and blames the tyres.
