MotoGP » LCR talks Castrol, Crutchlow, 2016...


OrangeOrNot: I don't understand why CC35 is being considered for another year. yes he can be fast on his day but his days don't come often. His style seems better suited to a superblke, which is more forgiving. He should try for a decent ride in SBK for 2016 (everyone will want the R1!!) and LCR should put a young gun on the Honda.
A lot of teams keeping their riders from this year, with the new tyres coming in next season it makes more sense for them to keep their rider or hire another current MotoGP rider instead of a rookie. Poncheral stated that in his Q&A on this website.

@PatrickD It'd be nice if Kawasaki did come back. Especially as there will be no 3rd tier Yamaha's, currently occupied by Forward, next season. Also no signs of the IodaRacing team signing up for another year and the financial struggle LCR is facing with fielding a second bike again...hopefully we don't lose Aspar or we could be on for a sub 20 bike grid next season.

MotoGP » Poncharal: Smith has raised some eyebrows…


FLtrooper: If Tech 3 wants a mid pack rider that will never score a win or championship then perhaps they should keep Smith. Time to give the ride to Jacobsen, Zarco, Tito, etc..
It's hardly like satellite teams are known for winning these days, in fact in 8 weeks it'll have been 9 years since a satellite rider won a race in MotoGP. With the current crop of aliens, the results Smith's obtaining are the pinnacle of what can be asked for from a satellite team. Furthermore 5th-7th isn't mid pack, it's the top third of the field. Jacobsen would be a ridiculous choice for this Tech3 ride next year, he's talented but he'd sink going stright to GP from Supersport.

MotoGP » Poncharal: Smith has raised some eyebrows…


Tech3 would be foolish not to sign Smith for 2016. Not only has he put his favoured team mate firmly in a no.2 position within the team this year, but with the wave of new changes coming in next season it's a pointless exercise to drop a rider for someone that's not adjusted to the team dynamic. Smith has been there for 2 and a half years now, he knows how the Yamaha rides, he knows how the team works, he's impressed a lot this year and his crashing has dropped this year. Why would Poncheral throw that away for a rookie that's, with the exception of Rins (who's apparently staying in Moto2 next year), older than Smith?

You can make this statement after Valencia, but not with 8 races to go. ANYTHING can happen in the next 8 races. There is nothing firm about Smith's standings in the WC right now.
My implication was after the races so far. I thought that was quite obvious...

MotoGP » Moto3 Indianapolis - Race Results


Challenger: What stupidity from the Kent team not to take a risk and start with a slick shod bike. A 66 point lead was it? that is the time to take a risk but instead we get a shoddy pit stop and zero points.
How was it stupid? If they took the gamble and it backfired and Bastianini won then that 66 point lead becomes 41 points. They played the safe and smart move...do what your challengers are doing. If you've f**ked it up they've f**ked it up also, no one gains and no one loses. It's about playing the long game now, win the war not the battle.
