MotoGP » Marquez completes MotoGP treble in Texas


Pretty decent race considering the circuit in my humble opinion. Marc is absolutely peerless round there. An amazing performance all round. I reckon Vale will be more than happy with 3rd, Ducati looking like a genuine championship contender and 2 Suzukis in the top 10 is a sterling effort. The point I wanted to make was is it just me that thinks this circuit is an absolute joke? Don't get me wrong, it looks fantastic but turn 1 is a p*ss take, it seems it's sole aim is to string the pack out and prevent overtaking wherever possible. I suspect the F1 race this season will be hilariously bad, given how that's unfolding. Full credit to MM though. What a guy!

MotoGP » Marquez completes MotoGP treble in Texas


nikisan: Am I the only one who likes this track? It's very unique for a brand new track. Has a bit of everything. Looks extremely slick from the arial shots, too.
I agree that it looks amazing. It's probably the coolest looking circuit on the calendar. I think the big problem is that it produces poor racing. The flowing areas don't really allow for a building, building, building of pace that culminates in a great passing opportunity. They seem to get the little groups of 3 or 4 guys constantly baulking each other, they then whack in a hairpin and as they all get on the gas they're strung out. It's a shame really because as you rightly say it is a thing of beauty. It'd work a lot better in reverse. Turns 1 and 2 would be brilliant for the end of a lap and I'd love to see them blitzing it down that hill!

F1 » 'Full house' Hamilton strolls to Chinese GP win


This sport is so hilariously bad now it's ridiculous. I wonder if they'll manage to go a whole season without a single overtake between the leaders. "ooh don't talk to me in the corners" "ooh Lewis is going too slowly" "ooh I'm getting a hot seat". Give me a break! Get rid of the radio completely and go back to pit boards. At least then we won't have to listen to the constant whinging. It's been said before but if you want a real spectacle you need look no further than the MotoGP. Even though the race today it's at a comparatively terrible Hermann Tilke track it'll still be 10 times better than this mob. Even the 16 year olds in the Moto 3 will put them to shame. Come on F1, sort it out!

MotoGP » Rossi sets rostrum target in Texas


I think it'll definitely be a tougher prospect than Qatar. A poor qualifying has the potential to be magnified at COTA as turn 1 on the first lap can be an absolute s**t show (if you'll pardon my French). The Duc's at full belt down that back straight could be a sight and a half. Crazy Joe could be an interesting each way side bet. David Emmett tweeted an interesting snipped earlier: "I hear whispers that the factory Hondas will be getting a bit more poke at Austin. Sounds like Ducati have HRC spooked." He's usually a pretty reliable source. If that's the case it could be hard to see past Marc. Whatever happens, come the moment the lights go out in the Moto 3 race, I'll be wearing my yellow hat, hoping for the best and shouting at the TV like a lunatic for the duration! Forza Vale :)

MotoGP » Espargaro: We are really f**ked in that aspect!


Garcia:
Kwack636R: Ducati were smart by moving to the open/'factory 2' rules so they could develop the bike, without that they would be nowhere. There was nothing to stop Honda and Yamaha doing the same (though clearly they wouldn't) - Ducati saw a chance for progress and they took it. I agree the soft tyre rule is pants, but it is a small sacrifice to make for seeing the Ducati's competitive again. Next year it'll be as level a playing field as we're going to see and at least the 'open' rules have brought more factories back to the grid.
I understand ducati needed help to work on the bike but if they wanted to go open they should have been made to run the open software like everyone else in the open class. It just seems like too many concessions.
And let's not forget that Ducati also have the biggest financial might of all the manufacturers

MotoGP » Official: MotoGP to BT Sport in new UK TV deal


Pretty disappointing news. So, free to existing BT broadband customers? Their cheapest unlinited package is £16 p/m + £15.45 for line rental or £381 for the year!!! The £89 on the MotoGP website looks a bargain however I'm sure I won't be alone in being forced to stream it on dodgy p2p sites! What a joke! No Moody, Ryder and Spalders will be terrible too!!

MotoGP » Stoner wins wet 'n' wild Sepang, Rossi champion.


rbr46 i agree, the bbc'c coverage was awful, if they're going to pay for exclusive live coverage then the least they could do is give us just that. the reason they had to swap channels was for a repeat of match of the day!!!! Moaning aside, an unbelievable achievement by Vale, and Casey and Jorge rode like devils today, petty squabbling and loyalties aside these blokes never cease to amaze me, they are unbelievable, every one of them and next season should be an absolute cracker, i love all forms of bike racing! forza Vale
