MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow: Trading places


9times: @TalentFan Satellite is and always will be satellite. and yes Rossi won on sat Honda. If that is what you believe, the why didn't Honda paint a Repsol for MM? Then there must be a difference between a satellite and factory Honda. Is it that hard to understand?
Ah. And of course all "Satellite" Hondas are and have always been created equal, right? No-one ever got a full factory bike and a 5x WC winning crew satellite setup eh? So. Maybe just as good a bike, and the best crew available. Hardly 2nd string outfit then. Is THAT hard to understand?

MotoGP » Pedrosa eager to join battle of Britain


Maybe you'll get the A-grade setup again that you got for Brno eh Danny-boy! You know - the one your teammate usually gets? The one thats just a bit better than yours - the one you got for Brno, while MM had to settle for the B-grade you usually have? If you're lucky, you'll get the A-grade stuff for a few rounds... help make the show interesting and try to fool the fans that maybe Honda & MM don't quite have the edge at will if they want it. Not at Valencia though Dani - oh no. You know how it works, right? Can't have the conquering hero playing 2nd fiddle at the climax, thats not good tv! Sorry, but Mark gets the good stuff at Valencia so round off the season in style and with the right fairytale finale.

MotoGP » Marquez ready to give it 100% at Silverstone


Yearby23: @TalentFan. Dani spent most of the 1st half the season recovering from arm-pump surgery... Did you forget Catalunya? There was no 'slump' in his bike's performance there.
No there wasn't. At his home race. Marquez's bike was at least as good too tho. Brno was like they were riding each others bikes though from the rest of the year to date. MM had grip issues and looked to be trying hard and unsettled. DP looked serene and totally happy with the way his bike worked at Brno. Normally its the other way around. All I'm saying is that there are inconsistencies that with all the data and rider aids should not be inconsistencies. It is something that has to be considered.

MotoGP » Marquez ready to give it 100% at Silverstone


AFAIAC the MotoGP season was an anti-climax before it even began. Now the fans have had the carrot dangled that MM isn't invincible to sharpen their interest I dare say normal service will be resumed at Silverstone. (BTW of course MM isn't unbeatable - only a cabbage would fail to understand its the equipment, settings and tyres underneath him that really dictate what level the performances can be in MotoGP). If the powers-that-be DO decide that its best for "the Show" that MM has his wings clipped a little for a while (after all, wrapping the thing up with 4 rounds left isn't great for viewing figures), then place your bets on another very strong Pedrosa showing, where DP's bike again shows the kind of pace and composure he's been missing all season (till Brno) & that MM has enjoyed all season (till Brno). Don't worry though MM fans... I guarantee that he will finish the season on a high with a win, and with the WC. I haven't seen the Script, but the scriptwriters know what sells

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Love-hate relationship with Silverstone


SeymoreRacing: To be honest will anyone really take any notice of what he does? His recent performances (or lack of) and tendancy to shoot off his mouth hasn't won him too many admirers, especially within Ducati or with their fans.
I like a racer to be outspoken and have some personality myself. Fans are fickle and will forgive an awful lot if you are successful, & will get the knives out the moment you falter. Im sure CC gets it that 2015 is probably his last, best chance in MotoGP to have a strong season. Just how his comments are recieved will no doubt be directly proportional to how well he goes on the LCR.

MotoGP » Smith impressed by Circuit of Wales plans


Dont hold your breath. The Taffia boyos are bound to milk it for a big chunk of revenue with no concern for the actual project. I agree that coming in on time and in budget is about as likely as me getting a Factory Repsol Honda, displacing Marquez from the team lineup. I like the idea and the site is actually pretty good for access from the M4 and M5. Its also only about 90min from where I live. I am just very cynical about CoW actually being anything more than a white elephant. An expensive one that the taxpayer will end up picking up the tab for. A bit like Cardiff Wales Airport (which ironically would both benefit CoW and benefit from CoW).

MotoGP » No British MotoGP ride for Colin Edwards?


I've followed CE's career since he was forcing a YZF750 Yam along a bit quicker than it really wanted to go back in 1995 and he was being interviewed over the Circuit PA system at Doningto Park WSBK races. He's really the last man standing from a pretty special bunch from that WSBK period for me, and so if CE hangs up his lid its closing the book on an era. Ive never really been taken in by the charismatic Rossi like most of his loyal fans... but with CE gone MotoGP is starting to look very lacking in real genuine characters and personalities. At the moment for me only Rossi & Crutchlow seem to grab attention when speaking and dont just churn out the PR-Speak. CE - you will be missed.

MotoGP » No British MotoGP ride for Colin Edwards?


@ Revilo52 I'm guessing manipulated was the word? Simple. If you look below the surface theres too much opportunity to do so to be resisted, and too many inconsistencies and anomalies to be written off as coincidence. Plus there's the monotonous regu.arity of the general finishing order, the 4-tier performance levels of the bikes, the inclusion of grossly expensive, overcomplicated and plain unnecessary technology..... I could go on. A much better question would be "why aren't far more fans catching on to all this?"

MotoGP » 'Dream come true’ for Camier


Isn't Silverstone being such a fast place though simply going to mean the Open Honda's lack of prod gets badly exposed? If so then whatever they do and however well he performs.... is being left for dead by all the Factory and satelites, as well as the Open Yams inevitable? Both Camier and Redding are big lads too - so they lack of shunt is going to be even more pronounced perhaps? I hope not. I think Camier has often shown flashes of real pace and speed on the World stage, and hasn't had the best support and crews (e.g. Biaggi a clear favoured No1 at Aprilia, and the Suzuki GSXR wasn't competitive). He's brave as well. Could be a good dice between Camier and Redding this weekend? This match is far more interesting to me than the front 4 really - thats all been rather tedious for a long while!
