MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 3rd


Yearby23: These polls are pretty pointless as the championship standings tell me all I need to know.
But they don't tell you all you need to know. According to your theory Aleix Espargaro who finished 7th in the championship this year was riding a better bike than Smith, Bradl, Iannone, Bautista and Crutchlow. That's simply not true. I'm not implying that this poll does reveal that, but you get my point, a list of names with a random number of points beside them doesn't reveal much about the season at all.

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2014: 2nd


BtwnDitches: Yup - I think this 2nd place vote ranking is right. He did NOT dominate Rosberg, probably couldn't have in acuality, and suffered for it with the fans who looked to him for even more. But, yes, a great champion.
Considering the team had the potential to 1-2 every weekend for an entire season, Hamilton taking 11 wins to Rosbergs 5 is domination of a team mate and championship rival. Yes Rosberg did take the pole 11 times to Hamilton's 7, but I'd rather start second and win, than start pole and finish second...and I imagine Rosberg has the same feeling on that one!

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 2nd


crashnetdummies: Machine advantage ? LMFAO, where did Pedrosa finish compared to his teammate already ? There are none tangible proof Marquez had a bike advantage, that's just what you want to believe lol
I'm sorry but when you have technical experts and people who are well and truly in know of these motorcycles, such as Neil Spalding and David Emmett, reporting that the Honda is the best package on the grid I think they're probably right. I tend to believe these people as they have no reason to b/s, unlike people on here. Anit-conspiracy theorists are as bad as the conspiracy theorists!

@Guna4699 You make a very valid point about Rossi that I believe is often overlooked, his return to form. When you take in to account the length of his career, his current age, the evolution of his riding style across 4 generations of 500cc/MotoGP machinery, his competition and the evolution of that competition there is no doubting he is the most achieved rider on the grid. I often think people forget the history of Rossi and his increible list of achievements because something new and amazing is happening right in front of us in the form of M.Marquez.

RaceRoad: let me help you. most exiting to watch? what ive seen is that he could cruise to victory....very often by sitting behind vr/jl/dp for alomst the whole race(and that aint exiting) and then the last few laps clear in to distance because the honda was miles ahead of Yamaha. NOT EXITING.! and by riding the same way as CS isnt exiting ist more linke COPY.
I understand what you're trying to do in fighting for the yellow corner here, but back in '02, '03 and '05 Rossi used to do the same thing. Especially his Repsol days...it'd look like a close race then 6 laps to go it was ciao Valentino, who's going to be second.

I'm going to say it, I think Dovi is a little over rated. Before you reply calling me a hater or dive for the disagree button allow me to explain. He's a very good rider, but he's not got the killer instinct of the elite riders of recent times - Stoner, Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Rossi. Dovi is very good at riding at an incredible speed yet remaining within the limits of control. I whipped up a spreadsheet just to compare Dovi against the factory riders over the seasons in which he's scored a MotoGP podium (2008-2012, 2014) and of Dovi's 24 MotoGP podiums 20 of them have come through the misfortune of other riders or riders returning from injury. All that said, you have to be in it to win it and he is an amazing talent. Let me know what you think.
