MotoGP » Moto2: Herrin out, Wilairot in at Caterham


re: "The Honda doesn't ride itself" damn near. re: "MM is the one getting the results." MM was the one getting support all the way thru the Repsol "farm system". re: "We don't see Dani running amuck at the front." he has his days, but it's not that MM is Mr. Fantastic...? Dan's just not that good. re: "We didn't see Dovi do it either". see last response. re: "Stoner did it for a season" yeah, AFTER he jumped on a Honda. re: "MM makes the difference on the equipment." which is not to say there aren't HUNDREDS of others on planet earth who could ALSO do the same. we just won't ever be allowed to find out. Q: why...? A: they DIDN'T win the "Born Catalan Lottery", as such they'll never get (or be given) the chance. OPPORTUNITY (not talent) is the only thing differentiating Marcus from say Hernandez, Petrucci, or the dirt track kid (local to me) who wins all the club races, but you don't know from.

MotoGP » Aprilia boss opens up about MotoGP return


re: "There will be new bodywork and a new fairing. It will be quite a new bike but still not 100 percent a prototype. For example the crankcases will the RSV-4 crankcases but [they'll be] very close to MotoGP [specification]." yup, those damn crankcases. he knows the limitations of which I've repeatedly spoke, so conversely, he knows the solution. MFIE, most frank interview ever...! s1 "technical seal of approval" applied. Romano, I said you were going to be a General some day, well guess what pal...? that day is NOW. BRING IT...!!! (forward, you and Melandro)

MotoGP » Aprilia boss opens up about MotoGP return


Q: "what is to be gained by running a somewhat uncompetitive machine next year?" A: eyeballs. once you understand and accept that here in the 21st Century, "bad publicity" effectively no longer exists (it's all just publicity now) you begin to see the logic. because they've made the announcement (ie. created an expectation in the mind of the laymen) that it's going to be the FACTORY joining the fray...? the less astute will tune in solely thinking this is going to mean something. for many (clueless that Noale's already been here and we've seen this movie) the talking point for a season or 3 becomes WWAD, "What Will Aprilia Do"...? even it's a "train wreck" (which I sincerely hope it isn't), positive (+) brand awareness is invariably the OUTPUT of the equation now, REGARDLESS of the values assigned (positive or negative)(+ or -) to the INPUTS. it is a mathematical certainty. (ship's carpenter voice)
