MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’


and before everyone on here says that Honda and Yamaha could have gone open.... Yes they could of but then they would have lost their electronics that they have spent so long developing and been stuck with the magneti marelli electronics.... Magneti marelli are technical partners with ducat and these electronics will without doubt be tailored to suit the Ducati ....

MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’


Of course it's unfair.... These concessions were only created so poor old Ducati could save face and stop looking so bad in the premier class of motorcycle racing..... It's becoming like the sbk championship where Ducati were always given a rule change to compete while the rest were just expected to carry on... Now they have Audi money and resources yet they are still given a helping hand ....if they don't win this year then they will look really bad...

F1 » McLaren ends testing with 32 laps-a-day average


The only teams to finish ahead of mclaren in 2014 were mercedes, red bull, williams and ferrari.........all of those teams are spending the same if not more money than mclaren...... Mclaren are having a bad run of things lately I agree but they are trying to change that, it won't happen overnight........Honda have been out for a while and need to get back in the groove, they will..... All teams have bad runs, you can't be on top all the time......look at ferrari during the 90's......they were an absolute joke, until they got the right people and the right mentality....redbull took forever to get their car up to the top of the grid, mercedes struggled big time when they first returned........lets just wait for the racing to start and then draw some coclusions but you will have to give them some time......... I'm not the biggest fan of Mclaren and Ron Dennis but I respect their achievements in the sport...I'm a Honda fan which is why I have such an interest in their progress together...

F1 » McLaren ends testing with 32 laps-a-day average


It's safe to say that Mclaren/Honda will have to use the first few races as test sessions. I seriously doubt that even the team and drivers expected to show up and blow everyone into the weeds straight away.... F1 is a different animal now (for the worse in my opinion) but it is what it is and they will take a little time to get in the groove with these new hybrid PU's. Look how dismal Ferrari were last year and they haven't taken a break they've been there all the time........... Most people on this website just come to moan and cause arguments for the sake of it, they know who they are because they spend their lives in front of their computers looking for conspiracies and have nothing better to do........some of us enjoy racing and the more manufacturers coming back to F1 the better.....give them a chance, they aren't in it to make up the numbers so they will progress.........

MotoGP » Rossi: Ducati can fight Honda and Yamaha


Ducati will get lots of pole positions this year..... They can at least develop, adapt and change their bikes through the season.... The soft tyre is a small price to pay.... Its cagiva all over again.... Throw money, frames, riders , engines at it... Maybe win a few races but eventually they will pull out... Everyone will cry foul and feel sorry for the poor old Ducati but the bottom line is they have been out of their depth for a long time now, no matter how much money Audi throw at it.... With Suzuki, aprillia and ktm coming in they won't be missed...
