MotoGP » If you could ride one MotoGP bike…


'I want to/tried to register as F Fish as I type it here but it seems I am not allowed' try F-Fish (underscore or hypen) as I guess crash might not allow spaces in usernames. For me it'd have to be the original RC211V with its v5 free from rider aids although I guess Id go better and be safer on one of the later 212Vs with all the rider aids turned up a notch or 3.

MotoGP » Gardner: 'Big mistake' to write off Rossi


"Are you really trying to compare Stoner on the first year LCR Honda outfit and third rate satellite team to the factory HRC outfit? Stoner failed to make the RC211V a consistent race winner? Are you serious?" No, I was comparing Dani's lack of development skills as the #1 Honda factory rider with what seems like Casey's lack of skills in developing the Ducati over a similar period of years to something close to ridable. Sorry if I missed that bit out. Dovi for me is the man doing the biz with the Honda technicians over the last year and Honda will be wise not to suddenly listen too much to CS on the development front and simply let him ride the bike as fast as possible

F1 » F1 to switch to 'green' engines in 2013?


cont....... In short, by simply limiting the tyres ability to cope with excessive amounts of power, the manufactures can spend time producing interesting engine and car designs that because of the likelihood different teams will almost certainly come up with vastly different designs (compared to today's F1 cars), each design won't have to be honed to the nth degree (the bit that costs 10's of millions) with the best design taking the laurels. Seems simple to me but then I'm only a fan so best not listen to me

F1 » F1 to switch to 'green' engines in 2013?


screw the green brigade, this is F1 watched by 100's of millions of people for the noise, speed, smell, atmosphere and spectacle not the mpg. The cheapest solution to keep costs down and the spectacle high is always going to be down to having simple rules. If you look at the technical rules and regs on fia's website, you'll see why a lot of money goes into finding ways around them or tuning the limited designs of the cars to the nth degree The best option would be something along the lines of 1) min. 650KG cars, 2) any engine you want & 3) rules on fuel type but not limits (this is my one concession to prevent toxic mixes or encourage/force bio fuels) with rules as simple as this some people might think surely the cars will be doing 300mph and accelerating twice as fast but that won't be the case if the tyres are controlled to prevent them coping with "too much" power as when was the last time you saw a car winning a race with shredded tyres? In short, by simply limiting the tyres

MotoGP » Gardner: 'Big mistake' to write off Rossi


"Maybe that's why CS has the most no. of wins & poles in 800cc era." as above. No doubt CS is one (if not) the fastest out there on a flying lap but the one WC to VR's two is almost definetly down to binning it too often and why does he bin it? Either he tries to ride it in the race like he does in qualifying (too near the limit and therefore often over it) or the bikes handling is pants and he's only got himself to blame there given he's been #1 at Duc for 4 years and failed to pass on whats really happening to the designers and engineers. I think its a bit of both personaly which is a shame really cos 1 out those 3 important things doesn't make a multiple WC. In the tests he jumped on a Honda which surprise surprise handled out of the box pretty well no doubt mainly down to Dovi's input rather than Dani's as I'm sure Honda also gave up on listening to Dani on the development front when it became clear Dovi's got better developement skills - Dani like CS failed to make the RCV a co

MotoGP » Gardner: 'Big mistake' to write off Rossi


"I think there's a good chance Vale now has an even higher regard for Casey's ability" or it could be he's already come to the conclusion that while he might well in many ways be impressed at how CS managed to ride the Duc so well, he's laughing at how CS has had the bike and the full attention of the Ducati mechanics for 4+ years still the bike is a pig to ride fast. In other words he'll probably know now that Casy is not very good at translating what needs to be done to effect change X into a language designers and mechanics can implement. For example the shenanigans with the so called "front end" this year in which they tried everything to fix it and failed which to be suggests Casey guessed wrong as to what was needed or was too proud to admit he tried to use 101% of the grip available which on all bikes equals a low side.

MotoGP » Crash.net's MotoGP top ten: 7th


Will he bollox match Rossi. Much as I like Nicky there's little chance he'll out perform Rossi next year. With Rossi's analysis of the current Ducati and JB getting upto speed with the way the rest of Ducati work, in 3 months or so those who have been kidding themselves Rossi (15th in testing) is slow will realise there was a fair amount of sandbagging going on coupled with JB getting upto speed with learning how to set the bike up in response to Rossi's feedback. All other riders engineers knew the bikes they were working on inside out, JB didn't
