MotoGP » Lorenzo: Dani and I tried everything to win

Awesome last lap. Well done Dani. Darryl Beattie highlighted that given that the Tech3s both ran out of petrol that maybe the drive up the hill to win on second last bend was a case of the Yam leaning out to complete race distance. I doubt it. Either way Dani stuck in there and that is now two head to head wins against Stoner and now Jorge. Hope he wins the WC and yes I agree I think maybe the shoe might be on the other foot as far as the No2 rider upstaging the leader in the Yamaha factory team. Sad not to see Stoner there complaining.

MotoGP » POLL: Valentino Rossi - Ducati or Yamaha?

People crap on about Stoner v Rossi on the Ducati, wins and DNFs and 1 champion and yes Rossi none, but 2007 was a freak event for Ducati and whether it be Stoner or Rossi the Ducati will not win a WC for some time. Audi may bankroll their revival but even that is not certain as Rossi has alluded to. It is the lack of front end certainty that affects Rossi more than Stoner (and Hayden) hence why he struggles the Yam will give that back to him. As stated on another thread if he is not competitive on a factory Yam next year I will admit it is probably time to move to the commentary box.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 'Hard to concentrate' for poor positions

Shamu the Ducati was on the decline even under Stoner (10,6,4,3 and 5 DNFs in his last season) and consistently indicated that Ducati would not listen. It has been consistently indicated by Rossi that they are not listening to him or Hayden. Can you see the pattern appearing. The results are but a continuation of the situation where Ducati stand still and essentially go backwards as Yam and Honda move forward. Look at what Honda did to sort out their bike hmmm doesn't look very similar to Ducati's last effort (a single ECU that crapped itself and they didn't even have a replacement so testing over!). If he gets a Yamaha Factory ride and he is not competitive over the next season then I will agree that he is past it.

MotoGP » All-new Honda for Mugello MotoGP test!

By recollection two new frames and a swingarm. Engine which was designed as a stress member has had nothing done. And this is over close to two years. HOnda starts the season tyres change causing chatter and within two months they have produce a brand new bike, if you cannot see the difference betweent these scenarios particularly in relation to how prepared one is to find a solution, hmmm not much to say really.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: The Hondas seem to have found something

As one pundit alluded to at the start of the season when the chatter started that that was holding Honda back, solve that and it is a return to the Honda/Stoner test pattern. Also just released a whole new bike to deal with it. We are seeing the end of MotoGP and courtesy of Honda. All I can hope is (whoever is riding) Audi bankroll a transformation at Ducati and they return to the winners circle otherwise it will be a one trick pony series. Feel sorry for Jorge as in 2011 when it was clear that while Stoner is a phenomenal ride the Honda nailed the Yam and he still pushed all the way to the end. Plus he whinges less than Casey...
