MotoGP » Moto3: Loi loses Marc VDS ride


Understand Marc VDS' point of view - a lot of money being spent on Loi and no results in return (except Argentina's 4th) but as a rider it's hard when the pressure is on you, everyone is looking at you to perform. Even more so when the team have been so public about their displeasure of Loi's results. That pressure can somewhat destroy - for want of a better word - a riders focus and distract them from their job at a vital time. Just look at Smith this past weekend, 5 crashes in 3 days.

MotoGP » Redding 3.5s from Bautista


Codger: The article says it all. The sooner he gets a quicker bike the better. 14kmh down on the Factory Hondas is a bit much for him to show what he can do, especially for a rider his size and weight. Very short straight too, so he is well down on acceleration as well. Give him Bradley's bike and Pol would have something to worry about.
Next season it is almost a 100% deal that Aleix will be his brothers team mate and Bradley will go to Forward Racing.

there is no chance of that happing he still owes forward team 400,000 euros and road for free this year the only way out is back to Aspare.
Yamaha are very keen on Aleix. The marketing and publicity benefits would be huge as well.

MotoGP » Redding 3.5s from Bautista


Tommy Morgan: Unreal. He gets beat almost every weekend by nicky and Ahoma and he thinks he deserves a factory bike??
Scott's performance on the bike this year have been very impressive, he might be being beaten by Hayden 3 or 4 times out of 5, but he's always close to Hayden. So for Scott to finish just behind Hayden in his 1st year while Hayden is in his 12th season is really good. Fausto Gresini can't stop singing Scott's praises, and so he should, unless of course you think a MotoGP team manager for the last 18 years is wrong?

MotoGP » Riders want changes after ‘dangerous’ pit start


mrfill: Two white lines, 5 metres long, 50cm apart, parallel to the track at pit lane exit. If your bike's tyres are not within the lines you get a drive through penalty Far too simple.
Pit lane is wet, but the circuit is dry. The riders pit for dry tyres. The riders in pit do a race start and steam of toward turn one and they've got 50cm of room until they hit a white line and get fired over the highside. Genius.

MotoGP » Riders want changes after ‘dangerous’ pit start


mrfill: If riders in a pit lane exceed a given speed they are penalised. Getting a bike between 2 lines at 60kph (or whatever the pit lane speed limit is at the track) is learner stuff. Once past these 'railway lines' they are on part of the track, not the pit lane. If they cross either of the parallel lines then they get penalised. You could call it an artificial chicane designed to create a single file at pit lane speed. I've not yet seen a motogp rider have a high side at 60kph.
Yes but they start at the end of pitlane so the 60kph rule is invalid. All the riders lined up on the line that means you can turn your limiter off and accelerate on to the circuit. They don't even need an unnecessary rule like that. Common sense should prevail in the fact that it's unsafe to have 9 riders start in a space that wouldn't cover 3 bikes on a normal grid.
