MotoGP » ‘Great emotion’ as Rossi returns to Mugello podium

Look he stuffed quali and that set him back and yes you can eff your tyres in three laps if you have to try and get past others, by hard breaking more extreme cornering and acceleration (part if against Duc with great straightline acc). Or certainly enough to make it just that little bit harder. Also did anyone notice the comments from Jorge about "Yamaha" developing a better breaking bike allowing him to compete a little more with MM. Hmm this better breaking seems to have coincided with changes that Rossi has been making, even if Jorge will say "Yamaha". Also VR noted that he changed the map that killed his lap time, whether this is correct who knows, but he did drop a second for no apparent reason. I think if he had been on the front row and with a good start he could have kept with MM and VR but he can't make up the gap, and the race pace generally confirms that.

MotoGP » Lorenzo lights up Mugello with Marquez battle

Nah hats off to JL despite a top speed/acc advantage to MM that saw him get nailed on the straight he took it to MM on a bike with a slight disadvantage and at that level that is all that is needed. This confirmed for me that on equal machinery it would be like this every race but with the outcome evenly divided. However I agree that Yam at least at this track closed the gap a little. But I still maintain on the same bike these guys would be hard to split and Marquez would not look quiet the deity he does at the moment, and I wouldn't have said that last year this race changed my view of JL, he raced and fought and I think given MM had a few moments we may see a little bit of pressure on MM. Now I just need Vale to find that 1/10th and it will be 12 cracking races to go.

MotoGP » 'Same story' for Dovizioso, Crutchlow and Ducati

C'mon JustWatch, yeah Stoner could ride the Duc better but at the end of the day it was a pretty rapid decline by the time he handed it over to VR, 10,6,4,3 yes wins but with Honda pulling their finger out in 2011 I am pretty confident CS would not have won on it the following year. Also Rossi spent alot of time changing the bike instead of riding it in an attempt to improve it. As for Dr Relliscada, Duc's look very nice but in terms of design and performance they have always been pigs and only won because of skewed rules as others have stated. And trellis frames really can't handle the level of power hence the move to beam/deltabox. Also you talk about history hmm bimota, benelli, motoguzzi have all adopted beam frames at various times they seem pretty italian to me? I think Dovi wouldn't care if the frame was made of pasta as long as it was competitve.

MotoGP » Rossi mistake ends Marquez victory battle

People will disagree but MM Honda is a weapon. He is an extremely talented ride but I think the Honda makes him invincible at the moment. To that end I think Rossi was probably being kind to himself in saying there was a chance of the win. MM was racking up 0.3 on every lap. However, I do not think this is age or lack of skill on Rossi's part the Yamaha needs to be more competitive they close the gap there I think Rossi has clearly established that he can mix it with MM consistently like he did at Qatar. As for Casey just like Lorenzo never defended a WC, if it was nothing about the bike then why did his wins go from 10 in 2007 and a WC to six in 2008 and no WC which coincided with tyre changes etc etc. Same with Honda.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi to start Yamaha contract talks

Ah choo, look Marquez is the real deal but one WC or even 2 does not a make a legend. As I have pointed out before I seen articles about how Tiger after having won 8 majors was going to blow Nicholas' record (of 18?) out of the water he went on to win 3 more and the hasn't been in contention for years. Raf Nadal looks like he may do Feds record but he isn't there yet. It is not simply about talent but staying power Stoner didn't have it and I have always said 2010 for JLo was gifted by the other three aliens being injured and in 2012 a similar vein. Also I didn't bring up who was the greatest I just replied to Mr Fill.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi to start Yamaha contract talks

Yeah but mrFill the elephant in the room for Ago is that for an extended period he was on a bike with a mammoth performance advantage which makes Casey's 2007 situation pale by comparison. That and that while on said bike in a team with Hailwood he only won WCs on the MV after hailwood left. Certainly Rossi is one of the few riders (and certainly not Ago) who left the dominant bike at the time to ride a bike that had not won in 12 seasons. As Doohan said in his own autobio he didn't have the guts to leave Honda and try his hand. Ago only left after the dominance of MV had been eclipsed and did not take the WC on the other marque the very next season. Let's see if JLo has the guts to jump on the bike he says is superior and battle against Marquez my bet is he doesn't and will use the lack of performance to maintain the illusion that he is the equal of marquez.

MotoGP » Front row first target for 'pretty fast' Rossi

Yes I cannot imagine Rossi coming out with those kinds of statements unless he had the strong smell of blood in the water. I think he knows JLo has lost his cajones a little and MM is starting to think he can walk it in (which is not entirely unfounded) but as anyone with a brain can see the Yam (of Rossi's) is closing the gap and Rossi has driven that development and on equal machinery there is little difference experience versus youth.

MotoGP » Tyre ‘risk’ spurs Rossi on to podium

Actually it was 1.4 at the end and given it was out to 5 means he was catching him as you would not whittle a lead down to that on purpose. I think Rossi has wins on him if they can have a bit of luck with tyres and I have little doubt that Yam will sign him again next year on one year as I have a feeling that the advances are due to his input and working with Galbusera. I always said that JLo is a great rider but can't hack the cut and thrust, likes orderly races like Stoner and Pedrosa. See how many laps it took Pedrosa to get pass Jlo.
