MotoGP » Marquez laughs at street bike rumours


No doubt MM will be up front, he's proven he is scary fast, smart, AND calculating. He has his eye on the Championship, not just race wins. I'm happy to see my hero, Vale, embracing him as a real bonus to the sport Vale loves above all, MotoGP. But as they say in the US, the green flag drops and the BS stops. Rossi will give his all at Laguna to show he is the GOAT. Marquez can learn from 2nd, if Vale is on form. And I love to see laughing, joking, profanity-laced press conferences instead of stone-faced corporate reps regurgitating the company line with no joy of their involvement or achievement evident. Motorcycle racing is exciting, emotional, that's why we love it. The riders should show that.

MotoGP » Aragon test gives Bautista fresh impetus


Trying to think of a nickname for AB, "Banzai Bautista"? "Accident Alvaro"? How about "The Green Torpedo"? He has talent, he has speed, he just needs to learn respect...not deference, respect. Maybe MM will have a bad qualifying and knock the S€!T out of him and he'll learn what it's like on the other end. I had a character literally knock my bike from under me in the third turn of a race. Total T-bone, a fan had video...later he admitted "i knew it was my only chance to be ahead of you, just once..." And nearly shattered my ankle, judging from his tire marks on my swingarm, maybe 3" behind my foot. Alvaro Bautista will seriously injure someone if he doesn't get his ego under control.

F1 » Ferrari: Mercedes got away 'virtually scot free'


Had there been an FIA representative present, this would all be moot. And I think Ferrari ARE a bunch of spoiled whiners. I'm a Kimi/Lotus fan...but to think Mercedes didn't gain any valuable data over three days of testing with current drivers and cars on track is burying your head in the sand. OK, it was Pirelli's test. How did they gather operating data? Did Mercedes shut off all their telemetry and stand in a booth? Ever been a racer? I did, for ten years, and if anything the drivers got a fair amount of seat-of-the-pants feedback on the current (and possible future) tires no other drivers on the grid even had the opportunity to learn. Non-grid drivers? OK. Old cars? OK. Current drivers, current cars, current tires, exclusive participarion? Unfair advantage.

F1 » Ferrari: Mercedes got away 'virtually scot free'


Seems to me, every time I've heard of the "approval" from Charlie Whiting, was that it was allowed - if EVERY team was given the opportunity to participate- which they weren't. How anyone can call three days of testing with current cars, current drivers, and current tires, not an unfair advantage, well take off the blinders and put on a blindfold with your team (Mercedes) colors on it.
