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 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?

MotoGP » MotoGP Silverstone - Free Practice (2) Results

Yearby23: TalentFan. I'm hoping MarcVDS will step in and sort something for Scott as Gresini is past it and hasn't been even remotely competitive since Gibernau/Melandri days or maybe even Simoncelli. Time for another team to take the reigns.
Me too. Still concerned that any Satellite ride could be a dead end with no chance of racing for wins (I.e getting promoted from Sat to Factory Team Rider) though. It looks like Sat guys now get passed over for plum seats in favour of promoting Moto2 Rookies straight to Factory seats, with the only other considered option being a rival Factory Team star switching marque.

MotoGP » MotoGP Silverstone - Free Practice (2) Results

Early days. I am concerned that Reddings great form wont get fully rewarded. He may well get the Satellite bike which gets him the chanve to move from a top Open fight to a top Satellite fight. But its looking more n more like a Satellite ride will be a cul-de-sac for riders. But it looks like the Marquez M2 promotion is the template for all future Factory Team seats. This will suit Honda. After all, if they promote a top 6 Satellite guy & the rider then smokes em on a Repsol.... itll show even the dumbest dumb fan the gulf in performance over Satellite and Open kit. Promote a fast guy from Moto2 (a la Marquez)... and hes hailed as a superb talented choice if he hacks it, and can be thrown back if he doesnt make grade with no dramas or headaches, nor too many tricky questions asked. For Scott's sake I hope I'm wrong, cos the lad is impressive.

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone

AyrtonSenna: Talentfan, are you one of those blokes who believes the lunar landing happened in hollywood?
I'm another of the many who are 100% sure the lunar landing actually happened. I saw it live on TV.
Me too. I was too small to really get what it was I was watching, but I saw it on tv live too. Theres so much stacked against it actually being achieved though that cannot be adequately countermanded by NASA spokespersons though, so I'm with the 'Film Lot' stage scene people. We could not land manned missions there now, let alone in '69.
