MotoGP » Pedrosa perplexed after crashing twice at Sepang


Sete: "Apart from the top four, Dovi is the next best rider and he had his shot with Honda and he couldn't match Pedrosa on any Sunday." A bit of an exageration. In races that they both competed in as teammates, Dovi finished better than Dani 35% of the time. In the six races where Dani was injured, Dovi had four podiums: 3 x 2nd place, and one 3rd. In terms of race results, Dovi is actually much closer to someone like Dani, than Dani, JLo and Rossi are to Marquez. I'm not saying that Dovi is on Dani's level, because he's not - just saying that Dovi is being underrated here. Put him on the Repsol and it's not as big a downgrade as you're making it sound, especially when you consider Dani's tendency to draw bad luck every year. Otherwise, I agree. Dani is the best pilot for the other Repsol seat...for now.

MotoGP » Is Jack Miller ready for MotoGP?


Absolutely not. This is just a product of the game, not a reflection of his talent (which he obviously has heaps of). I fear that this will not be the last time. With only so many bikes available, the factories will feel pressure to lock up talent, even before they're ready. IMO, that's quite the risk to be taking considering the dangerous nature of the sport. Then again, this is Honda's "sport". They changed up the rules to get Marquez on the Repsol, and now they're going against logic to lock down Miller. Whatever they want, right? Miller is basically going to get the factory RCV with spec ECU/software, only he'll have more engines and fuel so that he can bin it and grenade motors to his heart's content. He's going to be the top open class rider - Honda will ensure this.

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


There's still another seat for an up-and-coming hotshot, but Aprilia will benefit from AB's MotoGP experience. He's not alien class, but still a good rider. We'll never know how well he would have done had his ride been Ohlins/Brembo equipped, but we do know that on his day he's a podium threat. Something just didn't click this year, but the same can be said for JLo (to a lesser extent). IMO, it was a smart move by Aprilia to get him onboard, based on who was available.

MotoGP » Pol Espargaro inspired by past Marquez battles


Would MM still reign even with more factory bikes? Likely. He's that good. That said, one can only dream of a field full of factory (i.e. "equal") machinery. It would be nice to eliminate the conjecture, and the discrediting of accomplishments. Plus, riders like Pol would have their odd day in the sun, essentially shuffling the deck and keeping the championship interesting. As it stands, we get the occasional epic one-on-one battles with the top four, but it's rather predictable. These guys are all fast, and incredibly skilled - scaling back the tech to even out the field wouldn't take away from this. I myself wouldn't notice that they're lapping a second slower, and would welcome the excitement.

MotoGP » Late fall denies Bautista rostrum chance


@Garcia I'm pretty sure nanya21 doesn't agree with your "opinion" that Bautista crashed while "trying to overtake Pedrosa", likely because that's not what actually happened. I don't understand how anyone can say that they know for certain that a crash is coming just by watching the race. We saw a lot of riders go down, most of whom showed no signs of binning it prior to doing so. So what if Bautista gets the bike squiggly? Marquez does that sometimes too. That's just the way they get around the circuit. Just because a guy like Lorenzo rides as smooth as silk doesn't mean he's any less on the limit than someone like Bautista. It's their job, after all, to be on it.
