MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


bikenut: Just mention Stoner and some of the Rossi fans start to choke, very hard to rationalise Rossi's poor performance on the Ducati, I struggled with it and I don't even like the doctor
I don't think Rossi's performance on the Ducati was poor. Marco Melandri was poor. You just have to come to grips with the simple fact that Stoner was able to ride a POS better than most, if not all. If you want to get a valid assessment of Stoner's ability then consider the opinions of those who raced against him. This forum would be the last place on Earth to find a rational assessment.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


@Codger I think we can expect Stoner to reveal all as soon as the Honda contract expires. But the full time comeback would be very unlikely, and as you alluded to, such comebacks are very rarely successful. In any case I don't think Stoner has any inclination to come back to the circus, particularly after what has occurred these last few races. We can always hope for a wildcard at Phillip Island though :) It is important for the factory to know the limits of their bike and I think that is what they see as the value in having a fast test rider. Also the limitations on testing by the official factory MotoGP riders must factor into it.

MotoGP » Marquez 'pushed to limit to try and beat Lorenzo'


I checked Rossi's claim about PI, yes it makes sense because Lorenzo was very slow at the front. However, it does not mean that Marquez deliberately slowed Rossi up. At Sepang, Marquez deliberately started a stupid fight the moment Rossi passed him and the rest is history. At Valencia Marquez gave it all just to hang on, it was not staged. That is my opinion.

MotoGP » Honda withholds Sepang clash data


Therefore, I believe that the contact between Rossi and Marquez and the resulting fall was a racing incident because there was no intent on either side. The events that lead up to that contact were not a racing incident because both parties had a degree of intent. Rossi has been punished for that and there was no punishment for Marquez because there is no rule against what he did. Although as I speculated about 10 days ago, it seems they are going to introduce some in 2016. Yet more rules introduced because of Marquez.

MotoGP » Honda withholds Sepang clash data


As described on the MotoMatters site. Honda are going to release the data that shows Marquez fell over because he pulled the brake. Obviously since he ran into the side of Rossi and Rossi pushed him away with his knee. Whether the running into Rossi is what pushed on Marquez's arm, or Rossi pushing him away did it, is moot. The other thing they will show is some lap times to justify Marquez's "cooling tire" story. None of which exonerates Marquez from having a part to play in this debacle. Honda will not do themselves any favours by maintaining that they are completely innocent.

MotoGP » Honda withholds Sepang clash data


And it goes without saying that Rossi played his part. He was the one that ran Marquez wide in the first place. I know why Marquez was flopped on the side of Rossi's bike, it was a rhetorical question, he anticipated that Rossi would turn in and accelerate at that time. A perfectly rational expectation. However, it would seem that Rossi planned to bring them both to a dead stop or react to Marquez if he switched to the inside.
