MotoGP » Rookie Espargaro: ‘Hey man, you’re in third!’


Im one of a few that thinks BS has been given nothing but undeserved abuse from far too many. But his teammate did better than he did today, and his tm is the only remotely useful benchmark with so much disparith jn MGP. Seems Pol has settled in. Brad knows he has to beat Pol in 2014 and has said so many times. Pol might just be better. Or he might just be better yesterday at Le Mans. A 4th is great, but an under performing DP and JL help that 4th. We cannot rely on that every race. Its too early to say, but for sure Pol looks strong and a very serious threat to Smith. If Smith cant beat Pol by a decent few points over the season, then of course his position will be shaky, so you can be sure that BS will be putting whatever he has into beating Pol. At least the T3 boys will be having a proper race eh!

MotoGP » Marquez: Great overtakes, I enjoyed it a lot


Well, at least the Moto3 race was entertaining. The advantage Marquez has is a joke. If fans think its MM making the difference.... well I guess all that proves is that Dorna have the right audience intelligence level to suit them. Note that HRC are vetoing the use of larger brake discs (MCN last week)? Why? Cos with 2 starved dwarves as riders the HRC bikes have a lot less mass and inertia to stop, so they have another advantage with the 320mm discs. If you have a slightly inferior performance a rider only has braking to try to make up time. So they work the brakes harder. If you're heavier that works them harder again. So. Honda ensure they take away any chance for anyone to challenge. Its a farce. Why are the MSMA (as competing teams) allowed to direct policy for the Series? All it is doing is destroying any possibility of actual fair competitive motorsport. Meanwhile, the idiots gush praise about MM.

MotoGP » Marquez: Great overtakes, I enjoyed it a lot


RnR46. Show respect? For what exactly? For Marquez? For His Fans? For Crash Posters in general? I respect all the riders. That does not mean I respect MM's victories as he has far too much advantage, as well as far too much electronics doing the job for him. For fans? I respect fans who show a modicum of intelligence and understanding. Those who merely gush or gloat over MM while Proclaiming he is a legend, while glossing over all the things that give him a huge head start..... no. There are a lot of football fan, top rider only type supporters who do not care at all if a team or rider has no real competition and that there is no real value in such 'wins'. In other words those who care nothing for the sport nor its kntegrity and value. Just what is there to respect about fans like these? Respect cannot be demanded. Respect is earned.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati closer to the front at Le Mans


Will people PLEASE stop comparing riders against those on the Factory Yams and Hondas, then pronouncing judgement that no one else is good enough? Just how thick are some people... The 4 riders filling the podium are the chosen few...they get and have always got better equipment and support than others. We know the top 4 are great riders.... But no one else gets the same opportunities. So how can you fairly co**** them? You can't. Which means it's grossly unfair to condemn them as inferior. As I said before. If I had a race against one of you.... I get a 600 and you get a 125 commuter bike. I win the race. Would YOU feel that it was fair, and that I was better than you? Or would you feel it was unfair and that you could give a much better account of yourself if the opportunity was even? FFS! No wonder MotoGP is a biased mess. It's own viewing public can't even think for themselves and see the obvious. Are people just mentally lazy, or just plain stupid?

MotoGP » Riders want lighter MotoGP bikes


......... make no effort to address the disparity the dumb over-complications they install have created. The electronic overkill as well makes it 10x more unbalanced. Reduce the weight limits? It'll just make it even more one-sided. MotoGP needs fast bespoke racing machines that get ridden on the worlds best circuits by the worlds best riders to be the premier racing series. That does not mean the bikes have to be so good they nearly ride themselves - they are meant to be a challenge, not an automatic computerised thing like a Hotel Lift. Ditch the carbon brakes, the TC, the optimised circuit mapping, the seamless gearboxes, the launch control, the ECU modulating throttle inputs.... all the sensors and gyros that feed data and enable the setup and on-the-fly compuerised control. Dump the lot. Get world-class racers actually using their SKILLS to actually RACE motorcycles that require SKILL and TALENT to master instead of a poxy laptop. Its getting now so it'd be more exciting wa

MotoGP » Riders want lighter MotoGP bikes


With the rules of strict fuel limits in MotoGP, then weight IS a factor. Its not just the smaller classes where lower power introduces the issue. A fuel restriction creates a finite limit on the available fuel energy. More weight = more fuel energy needed to accelerate out of EVERY turn, and down EVERY straight, EVERY lap. More weight = greater forces on the finite limit of tyre grip and longevity, in terms of both accelerating, braking and cornering. Larger size = greater drag, so more fuel energy needed to generate more Hp to attain or maintain high speed. A heavier rider IS disdvantaged slightly anyway. Add in a very tight fuel limit, then by the Laws of Physics you introduce a limit on available energy which has to last the full race distance, and that the bigger/heavier rider HAS to use more of his resources (fuel and tyres) to go as fast as a smaller/lighter package. MotoGP is Stupid. They have a dumb fuel limit, and then make no effort to address the disparity the dumb

MotoGP » Marc Marquez extends Honda MotoGP contract


MM signed as he knows his chances of winning everything in sight diminish greatly on any other bike. Honda will think they have a superb backup rider who is consistent and a safe paid of hands in Dani. The bike is so far ahead they can be confident that if MM did something wild and hurt himself, that Dani could carry the flag. A sensible contingency plan and no boat rocking in the HRC camp. Honda will stir the JL pot got 2 reasons... They can drive down Danish price, and drive up what Yam will have to pay to keep JL. Resign Dani. Win/Win for Honda. Again. IF Dani leaves Honda, it'll be Dani's choice IMO. The political manoeuvrings are more interesting than the non-racing. Sorry to spoil it for anyone galactically stupid... But Honda are going to 'win' both rider & const WC's. The racing is not real, children. It's all make-believe.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez extends Honda MotoGP contract


Jim Clausen:
RossL:
rattle:
Garcia: What about Dani?
he is moving to sbk
So HRC will let go a rider who can consistently win races and challenge for the title? One who won't do anything mad and knock off his teammate? They'd be mad not to keep him.
Are you forgetting Portugal 2006?
2006 is a very long time ago. A lot has happened since then (except anyone except a consensus few getting the support to be able to win a race that is). Dani 2014 is not the Dani of near 8 yrs ago.

MotoGP » Espargaro: Open ECU means podium sliding away


@ SwissJudge Thanks for the positive comment (I'm not used to many if those, what I post isnt what people want it to be or want to believe). I accept you're right also that MotoGP seems to have slid down into the mire too far to be able to climb back out and clean off the stains. I guess sadly it is (collectively) no more than the current MotoGP fan deserves. If you dont insist on getting the real thing and place value on real, genuine and fair sporting contest above all, then you should expect and deserve to get a fake contrivance and a pale facsimile palmed off to you. Its too late already, yet they still will not accept that they are paying out for a poor fake, so that someone else gets wealthy while short-changing them. RIP Grand Prix. Killed by greed and stupidity.
