BSB » BSB Rider of the Year 2015 - 2nd


exloko: just for curious, which place would be good for Ellison in your opinion, JedPB?
I would have placed Ellison 6th, behind Brookes, Mossey, Byrne, O'Halloran and Hopkins. I was at every BSB meeting except Cadwell and I didn't see what he did this year that is deserving of 2nd, it was a standard Ellison season. Edit: by 'standard' I don't mean in terms of speed, but in terms of the things that happened over the course of the season.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 5th


MotoGPpower:...despite VR cutting the corner at Assen and the frustrated Ross deliberately taking him out in Valencia. With the machine he had this year and his performance, I think he should be much has higher than 5th
If you remove your Marquz blinkers for just a second, the reason Rossi cut the GT chicane at Assen was because he was punted out of the way by an out of control Marquez. As for being rated higher than 5th, "the MotoGP Star of the Year poll expects viewers to take into account factors such as [...] progress and personality just as much as race results." And that's where Marquez loses out big time.

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2015 - 2nd


FF1natic: Talk about overrated.
"the F1 Driver of the Year poll asks viewers to take into account factors such as machinery, performance relative to a team-mate, driving style, experience, injuries, progress and personality just as much as race results." Key words from that quote - experience, driving style, progress and personality. 1 year of open wheel racing prior to 2015 and you don't see this season, in a Toro Rosso no less, as an incredible show of skill, especially from someone so young?! And those overtakes, talk about original thinking. No pleasing some people.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 3rd


Matt2: I have same HJC RPHA-10+ same as he, and I have NEVER had any problems like he had. Its not manufacturers fault you or your team cant assemble the helmet. The front part of helmet does not come loose on its own. It was bad assemble on Lorenzos crews part. As was foggy screen. Not manufacturers.
I can't remember who wrote it on Twitter (either Julian Ryder or David Emmett of Motomatters) but they stated that at Silverstone it was Lorenzo's decision not to run a fog insert on his visor despite advice to the contrary.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 3rd


Gecko: Crash : It is obvious that your poll is not about the rider who rode the best or gave it his most but purely on fan base
It says on the lower section of the article that "Rather than repeat the Riders' World Championship standings, the MotoGP Star of the Year poll expects viewers to take into account factors such as machinery, performance relative to a team-mate, riding style, experience, injuries, progress and personality just as much as race results." So because Lorenzo won the title doesn't mean he has to finish top of this poll.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 5th


ducfer:Nothing new,so were Rossi's intentions at Suzuka 2010.He was prepared to do almost anything to get the much needed Lorenzo DNF for Pedrosa...
Hardly a valid to comapre 2010 to this past season. Yes, Rossi battled a bit too hard with Lorenzo in Japan 2010, but Pedrosa had broken his collarbone in practice. Lorenzo went into Motegi with a 58 point gap on Pedrosa. Lorenzo knew that Pedrosa would miss the triple header of Motegi, Sepang and Australia due to the injury, essentially guaranteeing Lorenzo the crown.
