MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'

TF2 - the way I read it is exactly the opposite. They haven't neutered the bike, they've turned all the safety net stuff right off, let him go out and play on it like Stoner. 'Open the throttle too hard, kid, and it'll throw you. Now learn to ride it. When you get that down pat, we'll start looking at electronic tricks that will help you go faster.' Before you start trying to set up or calibrate Traction Control, it'd be good idea to get used to what the bike is like and how it behaves when there is none. That's what they're doing. Danny Pedrosa had his TC taken out on one corner. He fell down on the next corner... Maybe that's what they're trying to not repeat.

MotoGP » Moto3 Malaysia - Race Results

We should note, Jack didn't start this stuff, Marquez and others did. After many, many hard moves which were not disciplined or punished in any way, Jack started treating others the way they've treated him. Second, note that all those moves were hard but fair. None of them was in contravention of the basic rules or standards of the sport. They may have been a little 'harsh', but they did obey the simple rules of motorsport. He never once moved over on anybody unless he was ahead or directly side by side. And (unlike several of Doctor Rossi's famous moves) he never once left a competitor with nowhere to go. The moves were a little harsh - but several harsh moves have been made on him, and nothing has been done about it. They were 'racing incidents'. Ok, so now Jack is giving back some racing incidents...

MotoGP » Moto3: Estrella protest against Miller, Kent rejected

JedPB67: Jack Miller is the biggest hypocrite going...... You can't have it both ways, either dish it out and keep quiet when you get it back or don't do it at all.
Horse feathers! Marquez dished it out long and hard, and when it became clear and past clear that race direction was never going to do anything about it, Jack changed tactics, and started to give back what he's been on the receiving end of most of the season. Now suddenly Jacks is a hypocrite? No, Jack is now playing the game the way others have played it with him.

MotoGP » Moto3: Vazquez wins - Miller, Marquez slug it out at Sepang

And an official protest has been lodged by the Marquez camp, against Miller. Ok, let's see how that plays out. Jack has been on the receiving end of a number of very questionable moves this season, and while he hasn't lodged any protest, nothing what-so-ever has been done about them. Ok, so now it seems Jack has taken his gloves off as well. Now there's a protest against him. Oh... Let's see how that plays out.

pogo: Lol kneedeagon, you mean like: ...
Sorry to edit, but too long, no go. 1)The point I am trying to make, is that several of the most famous and applauded Rossi passes, in years gone by, were more brutal and closer to the edge of the rules than anything Jack Miller did today. 2) As V4Poweeer noted, Jack didn't make any of those moves because he'd messed up and was in too hot, he made several very hard overtakes, which involved some light contact. 3) Jack would tell you himself, that in his previous experience, those moves would have earned some kind of action from the authorities. You don't pull moves like that at an Australian club level meeting and expect to hear nothing about it. But moves like that have been made repeatedly against him, most of the season. So now Jack has also taken his gloves off. 4) What happens now will be extremely interesting. If Jack gets penalised, punished / disciplined in any way for this, then why were none of the previous

F1 » Six of the Best: Winning Streaks

Do people on Crash really vent their spleens? No! Tell me it ain't so! Comparing drivers and results across 60+ years... It's not hard to do, but very hard to get done with any credibility. It's like asking how Jim Clark or Jack Brabham would go in a modern F1 car, or Seb in an early Cooper Climax, let alone a Silver Arrow. It's fun to speculate, sure, but it doesn't mean much.

F1 » 'Disciplined' Vettel keeps marching forward in Korea

Poor old Mark. Barry Sheene used to trot out a line sometimes that 'if he had a duck, It'd drown.' That was many years ago, but it describes Webber pretty well. To be successful in 24h endurance racing, you need to be good and quick and professional, which should be not too great a problem, but you also need to be a little bit lucky. I seem to remember that he wasn't all that lucky last time he was in sportscars...
