MotoGP » Moto2: Herrin out, Wilairot in at Caterham


RockNRolla46: Wow, did marquez blow up ur house or something? From where all this rage is coming from? Don't like how Marq is mopping the floor with ur Racing heroes?
Oh dear. What I said was factual. MM did total RW by staying on full gas on a slow down lap and t-boning the guy at racing speed. I haven't got any rage. Also it would be appreciated if you would not tar all people with your own kind of petty prejudices and bias (the 46 in your username says it all). I can however get a mild irritation from mindless muppets with big gobs. How about you stop baiting, and slink back under your bridge?

MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record


BJR:
Doohans Honda was more dominant in its day, than Rossi's was in its day, and they were both more dominant than todays Honda.
Doohan's Honda or the Repsol Honda's?? I'm guessing Criville's Honda wasn't too shabby.
Criville was Repsols Golden Boy of the time while Ukawa was Hondas man. Doohan was not a clear No1 - he was simply better than his teammates and there wasn't the technology on the bikes to synthesise what he was doing to beat them.

MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record


BJR: I'm getting sick and tired of all the records being "made up" for Marquez to equalise or beat at each round. One weekend it's the first since Rossi....then it's the first since Doohan, then it's first in the modern era..... FFS why not have a big party because at Silverstone he was the FIRST Honda rider to win a race since Dani Pedrosa won at Brno the weekend before. I can appreciate the guy for being a talanted rider, I just don't need Dorna placing the guy up on a pedestal to be worshiped..
They are trying flat out to take the raw Marquez material and manufacture the replacement Rossi Media Phenomenon & Cash Cow. And being none too subtle in doing it. And, it's working on the gullible.

MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record


Brain: Whilst I'm sure you have a. Dry fair point that Doohans bike had the support and spend to be the best in the field, the factory's did not gave the tech on the bikes to regulate them so efficiently nor fine tune them. Compared to today's electronic marvels they were crude beasts with vicious power bands, hair trigger analogue throttles, big power to weight ratios and much, MUCH less advanced tyres. Doohan didn't have a whole array of data sensors, and an army of data systems analysts and code writers programming his machine setup for every corner, and all the aids making it easier go ride super fast consistently. You simply cannot compare the required skill and effort, and the sheer will and balls needed to race Doohans Honda with Marquez's. One is a rabid wild dog of a bike that takes a man to tame it. The other is a big friendly, neutered house pet that has been trained to perfection that you could safely let your kids sit on and ride round the garden.

MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record


Tbh .... I bet Mick Doohan (while saying the fight things for the media about MM and keeping his Honda paymasters happy) is grinding his teeth in private when people compare his achievements with Marc Marquez. One is a proper hard ba$t@rd of a man who paid his dues and put everything on the line, riding an animal of a bike most of use would have been scared to ride down pit lane. Not media friendly (not even friendly come to that) but you had to respect the guy. The other is a nice talented kid with a big smile and some great connections, who rides a bike so sorted any of us would feel we could pop down the shops on it. Not quite the same thing really. No matter what the statistics will say, young Marc isn't going to fill MD's boots anytime soon. No one will on an electronically neutered MotoGP.

MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record


Apart from the usual degradation into a "my dad can beat up your dad" stuff.... Then yup, I'm staying true to type too when I say.... MM has nothing really standing in his way of another 'record'. And fans will gush about how great he is. I guarantee I could thrash Marquez in much more than 13 consecutive races on a Gp track. . Just give me a sports 600, and give MM his paddock scooter, & I will do the business. Nothing would really stand in my way. Not fair? Really? It's not so different to MotoGP. So.... Once My victories over MM got way better than 12 victories, I can rely on gushing praise and hero worship, right? Yeah, I know. It's a ridiculous scenario. Isn't it. This "record" is just a statistic. Not any kind of record to celebrate. A non event being hyped into something it most certainly is not (i.e. a hard-earned achievement).

MotoGP » Moto2: Herrin out, Wilairot in at Caterham


Wilairot is trying to get back up to pace after having his career effectively ended by being torpoeded by a maniac Marquez in Moto2. RW had been starting to get to grips and show some promise when Marquez happened to him, and he was an innocent victim. MM was lucky not to kill the guy, and chances are his backing kept him from getting a lot more than the slightest of raps on the knuckles he got for a stupidly dangerous move in blatant contravention of rules. So I'm not sorry to see RW get another shot at it - and I wish him well and good luck. Problem is, is that the Caterham might not be a good enough team to give him a chance to show anything if he has it to show. Herrin at least is young enough to learn and regroup and come back stronger.

WSBK » Unassailable Melandri puts Laguna demons to bed


Trackside microphones were picking up and transmitting the traction control working overtime. I know that is probably the same for all the well sorted front running bikes, but the fudging of the rules to keep all this stuff in WSBK is disappointing - esp after the initial stronger rules set was announced.. We all know Marco and the rest are damn good, but we cannot know if Marco is better at tyre / grip management and pace on worn tyres than the next guy. I was out all day and came home to catch the re-runs of WSBk and BSB back to back. No prizes for guessing which series had by far the best racing and action throughout, and proper, clear demonstrations of riders demonstrating their bike control on the edge. (here's a hint, it was the domestic series where TC is banned). The dependency on rider aids in the so-called premier international series is really calling into question whether riders there could come into BSB and show their superiority like they used to. Its by no means s
