MotoGP » Rossi talks GP debut, Sepang, snakes and Mamola

I don't think Marquez will have anything like the same domination in 2015 as he had this year, or as many people have assumed he'd have for years to come. The start of this season was a bit of an anomaly. Rossi was only just coming back to form, Lorenzo was AWOL and I've no idea what Pedrosa was doing. Marquez came into the season as reigning world champion and new messiah of MotoGP. Fearless and unbeatable in his head. Also the Honda team and bike were at the top of their game while Yamaha was playing catch up. Although Marquez is clearly an incredible talent, all those factors played a part in his amazing winning streak. As those factors have been eliminated one by one his dominance has gone. Based on the last part of this season, I expect he'll be fighting for podiums and wins most races in 2015 but I also think Rossi and Lorenzo will be doing the same. I also expect we'll see more of the Ducati at the sharp end, and maybe the odd podium from Redding, Pol, Smith or Crutchlow to

MotoGP » Frustrated Lorenzo rallies against ‘disaster’ tyres

Gary Rowan: Really pisses me off when Vale can do no wrong and it is always something else to blame but when it is Jorge, its always his fault!
Not everyone on this site has an agenda. A lot have, but not everybody. We're not all "fanboys" or "haters". Some of us watch a race, read as much as we can about it from teams, riders, journalists etc and then form an opinion. Which rider we "love" or "hate" doesn't really come into it.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi wins dramatic Australian MotoGP

They both had the same tire options, the same amount of track time, the same opportunities. That is as close to a straight fight as you'll ever see in bike racing. A big part of racing is about choices and making the most of the circumstances. One rider finished the race ahead of everyone else, so he wins. That's how MotoGP works.

MotoGP » Frustrated Lorenzo rallies against ‘disaster’ tyres

Gary Rowan: It's possible he got a "bad" tyre. However, it's also possible (and more likely in my opinion) that the damage was down to Lorenzo's riding style and a bad suspension set up as has already been discussed in detail earlier in this thread. So was Vale's bad tyre earlier in the season due to his riding style and bad suspension set up also then?
I was only talking about yesterday's race, not Austin. I think it's possible to have an opinion on one without bringing the other into it. Please note, I said both are possible but my OPINION is that one is more likely. Not sure why that involves a discussion about a different rider at a different race. But as you asked, there are some differences in the circumstances. Rossi's lap times in Austin dropped by a greater margin, and earlier in the race. Bridgestone agreed to investigate Rossi's tyre after Austin (the findings weren't made public) but didn't for Lorenzo yesterday. But, as with Lorenzo yesterday,
