MotoGP » Doohan: No lines crossed in Marquez, Rossi clash

Exactly Mick it is racing.........the line that was crossed was by Rossi expecting everyone to get out of his way to win the championship. He kicked a hornets nest and insulted Marquez in public because his ego was bruised that he was not on the podium in the best race of the year in Australia......He got stung and then expected Marquez to win the championship for him in Valencia.......the hypocrisy from Rossi is breathtaking...........

F1 » Last race marks McLaren's new beginning, says Alonso

SkidCarrera: It's desperately sad watching this once great team's fall from grace. The legacies of Fittipaldi, Hunt, Lauda, Prost, Senna, Hakkinen and Bruce himself are too precious to flush down the pan like this. Get a grip, somebody please!
Do you remember when Mclaren first got the returning Mercedes in 1995? they were even worse than took them 3 years to get the car up to speed then, and that was with unlimited testing and engine modifications.........these guys will be okay, between Honda and Mclaren they will figure it out, give them a chance.......unfortunately with all the restrictions the testing has to be done in public..........

MotoGP » Doohan: No lines crossed in Marquez, Rossi clash

contd.......qualifying so his pace was obvious and he kept his cool in such a pressurized environment. Valencia is a notoriously difficult racetrack to pass on when the margins are so small. If Rossi was at the front and he held off Marquez like that all race we wouldn't hear the end of how great Rossi was.......instead it's been twisted into something it isn't and Rossi had to come out of it looking like the victim instead of the loser.....

MotoGP » Doohan: No lines crossed in Marquez, Rossi clash

locky: All super competitive racers have a steely side to their character, nice guys rarely get to be champions, Carl Fogarty is a very good example of this as is Mick Doohan. In many ways Marquez and Rossi deserve each other-the laws of physics tells us that Marquez would not have been able to get in Rossis way at Sepang unless he first caught up with him by going faster at some point on the track. Equally what we have seen of Marquez in the past tells us that 30 laps at Valencia following in Lorenzos wheels is not his style-and the only overtake he managed was on Pedrosa who had caught and passed him by the miraculous tactic of riding faster. His immediate response to Pedrosa rather gave the game away-a Spanish 1-2-3. No surprise there. Maybe Vale should go home and count his money?
Yes but Lorenzo won 7 races this year from start to finish, he is hard to pass on any given Sunday when he is in that kind of form. He demolished everyone in qualifying so his p

MotoGP » Casey Stoner leaves Honda

Honda could probably see that he hasn't got the speed anymore and I'm guessing that's why they never used him as a wildcard.......It would have been a PR disaster if he was off the pace........better to use someone with nothing to lose.........Stoner had a lot to lose if the wildcard hadn't gone well...... After reading Stoners book and seeing what he said about Ducati and the way they treated him, I am suprised he is going back there.........$$$$$$$$

MotoGP » Marquez: Stoner Ducati speculation 'interesting'

If anyone has read Stoners book and after what he says about Ducati and how they treated him, it shocks me that he would even be considering going back to them. I would like to see him come back as a wildcard, but I can't see him winning races without putting in a full season....Honda were probably thinking the same hence the reason they chose not to use him. They never released lap times from his tests, but they could probably see over race distance he was not near the top guys........
