MotoGP » Crutchlow would prefer Rea as team-mate


HRC are not in WSBK, you would think people would know this by now but some people are just clueless.....the team Rea is in is a private team and not a factory team so Honda don't owe him anyhting............ I think Brad Binder has been one of the stars of moto3 this season, he is on a customer mahindra but he is still regularly mixing at the front against works hondas and ktms...........maybe he should go to motogp next year (hahaha just kidding) but seriously I do hope he gets a full factory Honda or KTM next year...........

MotoGP » Crutchlow would prefer Rea as team-mate


Rea has already been rewarded by Honda, he got Stoners bike for two races............how many other riders would have killed for that? I've said it before he didn't really impress on that bike either......Now everyone is going to say that he didnt crash and he was solid and that he needed more time blah blah.........that was his golden opportunity and he didnt take it. The fact that he didnt crash showed that he wasnt trying hard enough. He has had other offers in SBK, he even said he was offered the panigale before Davies and he said no thanks he would rather ride the Blade than the red dustbin............. if he is offered an open honda then he should take it with both hands......

MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


So now another way to look at it is this....you guys are saying how would Rossi and Stoners stats look if they had spent +-ten years with Honda, I think we know the answer, they would be amazing..........so based on this how bad does Pedrosa look then that he has no title yet has been with Repsol Honda for 9 years! I bet if Max Biaggi had been with Repsol Honda for 9 years he would have won at least one title.......(some people will say he was on the repsol Honda, yes but he was older then than Rossi is now and he started that season with a broken wrist and no pre-season testing that year....)

MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


Despite what he had done for them?? sure he had a great time there and he made the most of the revolutionary crossplane crank design. what about what yamaha did for him? he got paid handsomely during his winning years and was given the bikes he won the titles with, I think they could call it even at that point. Rossi was being put under immense pressure by Lorenzo to the point he put a wall up between them, Lorenzo still beat him. Yamaha had a young up and coming superstar that was beating their older jockey. Its a no brainer that yamaha were to favour Lorenzo at the time. Rossi didnt need the money but rather a competitive bike. Instead he told yamaha its me or him and yamaha made the right choice. Rossi left for the big paycheck at ducati and the rest is history. Like i said before it will haunt him forever.......... yamaha actually should be commended for taking him back after he left, he can count his lucky stars........

Rossi wanted the wall and it was there when they were both using Bridgestone... The point I was Making Is yes Rossi did well for Yamaha and Yamaha for him. They both benefited equally so Yamaha didn't owe him anything when he decided to leave... Yamaha was winning before him and they will win dyer him... It was a great period for both... I think Yamaha were justified to favour Jorge at the time...

Rossi went to Ducati because his big mouth and ego forced him too... He made a complete idiot of himself in the process. Especially after his comments about stoner not trying hard enough. Those two years will haunt him forever. Fact is stoner was on the podium at the last race in 2010 and Rossi was 1,5 seconds off the pace in a test the very next day with the same bike...Lorenzo got into rossis head and mentally beat him that's also why Rossi left Yamaha, his ego couldn't handle it... For me Eddie Lawson is the greatest ever, he was the best rider in the toughest era....
