MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP test times - Wednesday 12pm


Honda not exactly dominating so far, which is good to see... Lorenzo would no doubt be somewhere around Stoner's times... no question! More of a telling issue here is that Ducati seem as lost as ever and need to be very careful... the phrase "busted flush" springs to mind. And as for these CRT bikes... they are worryingly slow... if only Dorna could bend some rules and see fit to second some top riders (Rossi, Stoner, Lorenzo) on to them for a few days at this early stage to help shape their early development!

MotoGP » Sepang Circuit issues Simoncelli statement


@Ninou, I would hope as an ex-medic you'll agree that it's simply not helpful to have a slanging match on here (by a vast majority of people who really don't have a clue) over the rights or wrongs of this incident. Also, while much of what you say is valid, what none of us here know is the precise logistics in place for ambulance cover at Sepang and the operating procedures of track side medics and doctors relating to that cover. It is logistics and track geography that will dictate whether it is better for an on-track intervention by an ambulance, or if a pre-positioned ambulance a short distance from the track pointing straight toward the Clinica Mobile would be the optimal solution for that area. Also saying Marco was already dead is anything but a moot point and given that this seemed so even to laymen present, it would certainly have focused the mind of any professional medic/doctor on scene to effect as hasty a rescue as absolutely possible.

MotoGP » Sepang Circuit issues Simoncelli statement


@JapLance IF SPEED BECOMES IMPORTANT, then all else becomes secondary. I said earlier that emergency life support in extremely critical circumstances can be thought of in tiers (usually 3), with the final element being a fully staffed and equipped Emergency Department. Ideally, progression between each tier will be as seamless as possible, with speed of execution always dictated by the relative stability of the casualty... so you'll see logistics are not so simple after-all. Sure there'll be learning points and areas identified for improvement in Sic's case, and be rest assured the biggest critics of the event will be those who actually effected it. Emergency medicine in critical extrication situations is not an exact science and it's not for the faint-hearted... and please don't argue with people like mikeycrf when they tell you... they know!

MotoGP » Sepang Circuit issues Simoncelli statement


No steven, that is not necessarily correct. In the event of severe trauma, the priority of appropriately trained first persons on scene is to provide elementary life support. In the event of extremely tenuous life signs that might include rapid extrication of the casualty to the next tier of medical intervention. Such calls aren't easy to make and are rarely absolute. They are also impossible to judge from the sidelines.

MotoGP » Brivio: Rossi will not retire


Good post Don-R... and I'll add that the majority of racers are generally wired differently in their attitude to risk, competition, motivation and their overall life philosophy than the vast majority of people... and the further up the class, these traits are amplified accordingly. While it's natural for the masses to imbue how they would feel and what they would do if they were involved, many will be somewhat wide of the mark of what's really going inside the heads of Rossi and Edwards... let's just wait and see... And ace, shame? WTF??? Shame on you!

BSB » Denning talks Hopkins, title miss and pride


I addressed the questions, but you just don't like what you're hearing, but I will indulge you... 1. So of course in conventional seasons you don't have situations where teams and riders employ damage limitation strategies (e.g. Ducati MotoGP) or race goers in the last few rounds get a borefest (e.g. BSB 2009). 2. In conventional seasons riders manage injury... that's a fact... new BSB rules give them another dimension in how they are able to do it. Misfortune is part and parcel of racing, even when it's in the shootout it's the same for everyone, but it's brought into sharper focus... if you are a racer you'll know that more than anyone. Worthy champions AND runners-up simply manage this irrespective of their season format. 3. Your fastest lap qualy issue is valid... fastest laps to be set on the same tyre as the winner?... sorted! Glad your man won, I'm sure Tommy's people feel the same.

BSB » Denning talks Hopkins, title miss and pride


The BSB points system really isn't right OR wrong you know... it is what it is and it's the same for everyone. Also any ideas that race goers are somehow short-changed in the non-shootout phase of the season because teams aren’t really trying, are both illogical, and in practise patently wrong once all angles are considered. The concept was simply an experiment to ensure the latter half of the season might still hold interest to the paying public in the event of title runaway AND bring at least a few riders to the last few rounds still with a title chance. We now have evidence to suggest the experiment has been rather successful and is maybe worth pursuing. In summary, this has meant that after only the second running of the format we've had one of the best BSB seasons ever AND one of the BEST RACES of all time... and everyone who is anyone is saying so. So whatever else it is, or isn’t... it's certainly equal, fair and above all it appears predisposed to make bl@@dy good racing!
