MotoGP » Schwantz: Only Lorenzo can halt Marquez


@RSF131 You got to be joking, from the the start of the two stroke Yamaha and Suzuki were the prominent bikes Honda was always a four stroke company and if my memory serves me right only won three WCs between the mid seventies and Doohan's five and Lawson, Spencer and Gardner rode on the ragged edge to win those championships and who brought Honda up to speed well that would be Doohan and every Honda in the paddock would download his settings also as I mentioned in a previous post Doohan was a cripple

MotoGP » Schwantz: Only Lorenzo can halt Marquez


@AussiNSW. While I usually agree with you I have to say sorry your posts about KS are a bit cruel I do agree he's a bit mouthy but to say he's not a great racer well I always thought him very exciting to watch. There are a swag of old 70s and 80s videos on you tube refresh your memory go have a look, some of those races between him and WR are edge of your seat mind blowing

MotoGP » Schwantz: Only Lorenzo can halt Marquez


However anyone who ever seen a WR v WS battle and knock WS who just about turned that Suzuki inside out and yet state he was nothing special well I say to myself are they a bit one eyed, and then we get back to stats. Who got the closest to Mick in his five WCs ??????? well that would be Daryl Beattie another Queenslander who I'm sure a lot of people on this site would never have heard of someone who had to retire due to horrific injuries before he really hit his prime. Then there is one of my all time favourites Bob MacIntyre Twice second in WCs I had the good fortune ti watch him not just beat a swag of WCs he oblitered them but the stats show him just like Dani an also ran. That's stats.????

MotoGP » Schwantz: Only Lorenzo can halt Marquez


What an interesting thread this is. Which I think brings us back to stats, something Rossi fans love to bring up, Stats don't lie, however if one knows the story behind the stats they could bring a totally different story, eg would Wayne Rainey have won three WCs if MDs doctor hadn't made such a mess of his leg, Mick was lucky he didn't loose it, a brake nowhere near as bad as Barry Sheen's who was back at the pointy end within a matter of weeks. Mick lost that championship by just a few points. Mick did not get back to his winning ways until nearly the end of the following year and then went on to win five WCs and yes he was a cripple.

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty 'wants MotoGP with Aprilia'


There is a jot more to racing than stats. Stats don't lie true, but conditions can change the true outcome example Eugene had two DNFs due to bike failure. Johnny Rea lost good points because he didn't cross the finish line even when he crossed the finish line in forth place and the race was declared finished, points that could possibly drop him a place in the final placings. Over the years I can think of dozens of similar stats although true do not give the whole true story.
