MotoGP » Colin Edwards: Past, present and future


" I think everyone is going to see that you're going to have to reinvent their package once more to make the Michelin tyres work. It's going to be some hard work for a while to get things moving in the right direction. But Yamaha and Honda are still going to be there. It doesn't matter.” I've been flamed for saying that the control software and tyre swap won't change the status quo. CE knows what he's talking about. Are the Mouthy Ones going to rubbish Colin's words? The Fans could really do with someone actually telling it like it is so that they can really understand the true nature of MotoGP. It won't be pretty, but it'd be nice to get some of them back on planet Earth where reality lives. Some Crash posters would have to eat a hell of a lot of crow or slink back under bridges if Colin really told it like it is I reckon.

MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass


I watched it all this Sunday live. I cant think of anything meaningful about the MotoGP race to comment on, except for 3 things: 1. At least MM had to be visibly trying to beat Lorenzo today at times. 2. MM's Honda once again seemed to allow MM to get away with outrageous (& confident / brave) abuse of the front end, yet it always seemed to stick and make the apex and run tight. 3. Silverstone kept the proper racing and best till last. Moto3. Now THAT (just like Brno) was a Race.

MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass


Also.... the race showed that MM had a tiny bit of performance and tyres in hand throughout, and was just sitting in behind JL for many laps knowing no challenge was coming from behind. He didn't push faster simply as he didnt need to, he could wait for his superior machine and fuel consumption to come to him in the closing laps. Fair play to JL, he didnt roll over even though he knew MM had more under him.... he made MM work and push to actually get by and tried to race him and force an error, which nearly worked. But.... MM would have made his move earlier if there had been any challenge from DP or VL. This race was out of the Valentino book of showmanship from a few years back - when you have the better package and no pressure, and you have only one rival close.... theres no need to go any faster than you need to.

MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass


The 2 posts above mine..... One guy has worked it out, is thinking for himself, believing and having confidence in what his eyes see and his logic tells him. The other is Brain. Who is basically being a shouty empty vessel repeating what he wants to believe, while his own view and objectivity is blinded through having his head so far up young Marqez's behind. Even a season ago there a tiny few voices of reason and common sense among baying hordes of people with the soccer fan mentality of friend Brain. Td10092's posts and others are showing that finally there IS a growing disillusionment and understanding of just how badly corrupted Grand Prix has become with OTT technology and desperately poor Stewardship of GP's by Dorna. Im glad to see green shoots of a proper racing fanbase beginning. Get enough Td10092's and a lot less Brains & a renaissance of real GP Racing has a chance of happening one day.

MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass


Block passes tho are a MotoX staple, where into a 180 stop-go turn one rider shoves his bike up the inside then pushes his rival to a dead stop on the outside of the turn, forcing him to a near or full stop and unable to proceed until the blocking rider pulls clear. Its not quite the same here but the same principle and effect yes. But.... optimised drive and grip thru electronic intervention and rider aids has eliminated overtakes on acceleration out of corners. The only place for a rider to make time and passes is now on the brakes - the OTT tech has seen to that. So this kind of passing manoevre with the odd undertake due to the rider in front running on slightly are all thats LEFT. Without the block pass to deliberately push a rival wide, and to prevent them accelerating until AFTER the blocker has pulled away & clear of a counter attack... then single file processions like the F1 of old is whats left. What you are seeing is the inevitable tactics of necessity, forced on ride

MotoGP » Marquez finding fast times 'easy' at Silverstone


Brain there saying that its all perfectly fine and fair..... just because he says so, and therefore it is. So we can all relax, Brain knows all. After all, history in MotoGP suppirts his opinion, right? Im also no particular Rossi fan, closet or otherwise. Nor do I think MM is anything othrr tban supremely talented. None of which changes the fact that MM is winning with the very best of everything, & he just PROVED at Brno that it only takes a duff tyre to drop him to a distant 4th. Pedro proved the opposite. So (again!) To say its all MM and that he is head n shoulders above the rest is obviously just fanboy sychophantic drivel.

MotoGP » MotoGP Silverstone - Free Practice (2) Results


Garcia: What about lannone? Or P.Espargaro who has a foot on factory bike already? Have you ran out of things to moan about that you have to make stuff up? Any satellite rider that hasn't moved to factory is because hasn't delivered. If Redding gets results he has a good chance to get pedrosa's bike.
Iannone is on Ducati. Not the same even tho its Factory. Pol hasnt got one yet, just a direct contract, not guaranteed. Satellite guys dont get the tools TO deliver FFS! How many times does it have to be said and proved by successive years of only Factory wins?
