MotoGP » All-new Honda for Mugello MotoGP test!

I don't think anyone is disputing Honda's "right" to produce a new bike but agree it kinds of reeks of the what Ducati got lambasted for. However, in the big scheme if you have one company which can and is prepared to spend this kind of cash and the other cannot then really it becomes a "chequebook" series rather than a race series. Yes maybe Honda will spend cash without finding a solution but by the looks of it they are prepared to keep spending until they do Yamaha probably doesn't and I would say Ducati probably doesn't either. Sounds like a recipe for great "racing" NOT.

MotoGP » Confident Lorenzo relishing Mugello return

Not a great deal of mystery to this. Honda went away and rustled up some new frames and solved chatter, DP and CS ran away (well until he crashed and blamed everyone under the sun). If the solution has been found it could be resuming of the 2011 test pattern. I wonder how the Audi's will go this time. Also did you see on GPOne that Pernat (ex Jorge manager) confirmed that Jorge was offered more than Stoner to come to Honda. Looks like Honda couldn't stand his moaning either even after saving their bacon in the 800cc era.

MotoGP » Rossi: We’ll see where we stand

SwissJudge could not agree more there is a reason Yam and Honda trade places they both throw buckets of money at it. People crap on about redesign this multiple frames, really Duc haven't done much in two years and the complaints that Rossi made haven't been addressed. Equally who says that the things Ducati are developing are any good. And finally alot of this is won through electronics and I think Duc aren't even in the ballpark there. Yep your rep will take a hit but win a race with Honda or Yam and that memory will quickly be forgotten.

MotoGP » Rossi: We've taken a decent step forward

Also I agree about Nicky, I think the last two races he has basically gone out to show that a) possibly he is faster than Rossi (certainly his qualifying is showing that) but also I think that the bike is fast initially but that it burns tyres and he goes backwards. Rossi needs to up his qualifying as one thing killing him in races is that he starts at the back with the gumbies and loses touch trying to get through the crown on the first few laps.

MotoGP » Rossi: We've taken a decent step forward

Some knowledgeable people like Mat Oxley seem to be of the opinion that CS & JL have moved the goalposts and are definitely and consistently faster than VR's best. Drift not disparaging what you are saying and it has been a while but the only example on similar machinery has been 2008 and 9 and he won. 2010 was a right off but even then came back in record time and won. I noticed both Mat Oxley and Stavros are quick to write off Rossi now as too old too rich. But I just know in my bones that on competitive machinery Rossi would be burning to get 8 WC and 122 wins.

MotoGP » Rossi: Ezpeleta knows more than me!

Tommu, They all slide mate to different extents and slide to steer Rossi only made comments about this last week. But as Stoner is demonstrating he cannot unslide now to save the rear which shows a certain level of inflexibility in riding style (Hmm where have I heard that before). As for Rossi I hope he leaves, I know that Rossi wants two things before he retires 8 Prem Class WC to match Ago and to beat his 121 wins. Cementing his GOAT status. Ducati got a march in 2007 and will most likely never achieve that situation again and Stoner could not arrest that decline and neither can Rossi. Are we saying Cal would be better than Hayden on the duc, in the last few races Hayden has shown I think on purpose that the bike can run for a period and him at the front but it kills tyres and he goes backwards.

MotoGP » Front to back for Valentino Rossi at Silverstone

I agree Dacron et al. Rossi is driven by wanting to break all records so 8 premier class WC and 122 wins. He is currently contemplating the Ducati and as you say if the engine which is really the big question mark now (with the chassis having been altered completely) does not perform I think he may depart as he has tried everything else. He said Brno so I wait with baited breath. As for the situation with Stoner, I think he may well of known what was wrong and tried to convey it but did not have the clout to get it done. Having said that the bike went backwards and he never came close to winning the WC after 2007 and there are question marks to this day around tyres etc in 2007. People talk about Stoner getting off one day having romped and Rossi going nowehere the next day. Well comparing a guy that had 4 years exp and 2 on CF to one starting cold is obviously going to produce that kind of result.
