MotoGP » MotoGP ‘not far’ from 2016 agreement

"If they claim three wins before the end of 2015, their riders will also lose the softer rear tyre allocation." In this instance would they gain the use of the harder rear? Or simply be stuck with the one medium tyre compound at each weekend? I can't imagine they'd be restricted to one compound on safety grounds, so they must be given the hard in its place? Given Ducati's desperate need for the harder rear tyre this season, this particular restriction seems more of a benefit.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain

No doubt if Lorenzo had swapped bikes in Valencia and come out on top instead this ridiculous idea would never have surfaced in the first place. Next I suppose he'll want a maximum speed limit for corners prone to low-sides, and perhaps have a bottleneck system setup on the first lap forcing all riders to enter single-file into turn one in order of qualifying.

Polyccio: He also tried to get Rossi issued with a penalty point at the last race for 'getting a tow' in quali. I wonder what Lin thought about that one???
I missed that bit of reporting - did he really?

MotoGP » Michelin front main question for 2016

I'd like to see multiple tyre manufacturers in MotoGP who are required to provide a fixed allocation of tyres at each round (for example soft, medium and hard). That way the old days of last minute tyres being produced for qualifying or race day will be over, but it will still provide a competitive format for the brands to showcase their rubber. As an additional side effect Lin Jarvis can avoid ridiculously cumbersome and mandatory logistical nightmares.

BSB » Hopkins impresses on competitive return in Spain

Gotta agree with PatrickD, Hopper's a class act no doubt, and he obviously has world class potential - he demonstrated that in GP and WSBK. But if he'd been in a better position last year, who would Suzuki take to partner Laverty in WSBK? Obviously you're gonna go for the young gun Lowes, he's got talent, potential, a lot of time to go and few injuries to deal with. Hopper's a great bloke and awesome rider, but he's got less and less time ahread of him. I reckon he should bag the BSB title a couple of times, or maybe even go for a record five if he can handle it, then go join Randy for testing and the odd wildcard.
