MotoGP » 'Upset' Rossi ready to ditch new Ducati

If the 'real' problem with the ducati was easy to identify and fix, then they would have done it. I think the problem has about 4 parts, and the 'real' problem is the complex interaction of those parts. 1) Carbon fibre can be made to do clever things, but you have to be clever to make it work. It has a long lead time as well, so making another one slightly different takes a long time. It has different physical properties so it 'feels' different, and learning to read the feel is not easy.

MotoGP » Pedrosa takes surprise Sachsenring win

Good race. I enjoyed that. I'd have liked to see Stoner win it, but that's not what happened. It was good and close and exciting, and they all did well. Special congratulations to Dani - outstanding effort and a completely deserved result. Good to see. Now I want to see more of the same. Stoner and tyre problems? Well, they all had tyre problems. The advantage swung back and forth between the three of them as the race unfolded. I think all 3 got the result they deserved.

MotoGP » Stoner pole in Germany, Rossi 16th

"They seem to be stood still on development, fix the back the front gets worse, fix the front the back gets worse." Right - which is exactly the problem Stoner has been dealing with since the first time he threw a leg over the thing in pre-season testing in 2007! And what exactly have the erudite and insightful multitude here on crash had to say about it? My gloating and baiting is not really directed at Vale - I actually think he's in a bad place and I feel for him. I'm thumbing my nose at the balmy yellow army. I'm throwing some stick back at the idiots who threw it at me.

MotoGP » 'Confident' Simoncelli chasing season-best

He's got a huge future ahead of him, this boy. He's so quick. But he has to learn to stay on it. Fortunately, that's easier to do than to teach somebody slow to go fast. It's good to see that motorbike racing hasn't yet got so safe and responsible and professional that a wild child still can't come in and upset the apple cart. Good to see. LOL - Of course if he knocks Casey off this weekend I may not feel so positive about him.
