MotoGP » Stoner: Wait and see...

You can't argue with statistics, is that what the argument was? Well here are some. And now for your enjoyment, I once again dig up my old posts . . . Rossi vs Stoner - Head to Head - Part 6 2007 to 2010 In head to head, when both of them started the race on factory bikes, but only to the end of 2010 as Rossi is scared to ride the Ducati fast, for fear of having an accident. Therefore, it may not be fair on the Chosen One to be expected to compete under such harsh conditions. Stoner defeated Rossi 33 times and Rossi defeated Stoner 30 times. As usual my posts will not receive a response because facts cannot be argued with. Best to say that once upon a time Rossi won something, and that the Ducati that Stoner rode was not only better than everything in the field but it also had the most traction control.

MotoGP » Fresh hope for Valentino Rossi?

Burgess has reported in the past how they lucked into the setting that Rossi likes with the M1. That being the seat height set very high. This is what Rossi appears to be referring to. The Ducati however has this low attitude and this was reported to be the case by Alan Cathcart a long time ago. All this talk about binning the engine seems ridiculous to me, but I am not an engineer. Preconceptions do not lead to objective thinking. Stoner has indicated that had he remained with Ducati he would have preferred the 'screamer' engine, if you can consider that such a thing even exists with a ninety degree V-four. In any case, Rossi needs to start with a clean slate and forget about how to ride and setup a Yamaha. Maybe he is at that point.

MotoGP » Arm-pump caused Stoner slump

The interviewer asks questions so that the riders can elaborate on what happened during the race. If I lost the lead due to arm pump, and someone asked me what happened that caused me to slow down then I would explain that I suffered arm pump. Stoner may have been guilty of 'moaning' in the past but I cannot see this as moaning.

MotoGP » Michael Czysz: How to save MotoGP

Oh really? A manufacturer has to spend gazillions on a naturally aspirated engine to make some power. What a revelation, not! How about proposing the cheap alternative, forced induction. Oh no! Don't mention that. Let's just have an endless diatribe about hp limits, rev limits, spending limits, electronic limits ad nauseam. F1 is going back to forced induction to make it cheaper and more fuel efficient. Are any bells ringing yet? Every dollar you spend on a naturally aspirated engine is a wasted dollar. As always this post will be ignored. Same as banning fuel injection on two strokes, breathtakingly stupid.
