MotoGP » Crutchlow wins satellite battle on tough night for Honda


Not being a patriotic person I don't follow riders based on where they were born, nobody has any say in that. There is a steady stream of 'Brit' bashing on here so can I point out that the 3 riders in question did OK. It could be said that the top 6 places were a forgone conclusion after practice and warmup, so for the English guys to finish 7th, 8th, and 13th is an outstanding performance. I agree that they aren't threatening the front runners (yet) but neither are the French, Americans, Australians, Africans, Norwegians, etc. etc. etc. Maybe we should all enjoy watching those that are on the grid rather than worrying about where they originated from.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati has done an amazing job


A couple of thoughts come to mind, firstly I really liked the way the Ducati guys were chanting "Dovi, Dovi, Dovi......". I don't recall them doing that sort of thing for previous Ducati riders. When Casey, in 2007, had the Ducati that blasted past other riders on the early part of a straight, his fans ( and Rossi haters ) were very verbose in denying that he had any advantages. I wonder if they are the same people that are now calling for rule changes now that Dovi has a rocketship. No side to this post btw, I've already posted that Ducati should lose concessions immediately after their first dry win. How close did they come to getting it in Qatar ? Close enough to lose their concessions now, I say.

MotoGP » Dovi tempted by title thoughts, reality '5-6 races'


Out of the top 3 manufacturers the Ducati has the potential for more development than the other two. The ducati will only get better, and when the two riders get their bikes dialled in they will be in contention at all the tracks. Dovi is a classy rider and has a habit of beating his team mates and long may that continue. As usual, the stupid Quallifying rules influenced the race but, in this instance, I believe the two Ducs would still have been on the podium.

MotoGP » Rossi: Strategy beats ‘boring’ races, rates Dovi duel


Surprisingly some posters don't think much of Rossi. When he used to cut through the field to win after being in 10th place or worse, they used to say it was because he had 'overnight specials' or that the talent on the grid wasn't that good. My question is, do they think that those are the same reasons why he was able to do it in Qatar ? I wish he hadn't beaten Dovi though.

MotoGP » Rossi: One of my best ever wins


Part of my post from March 20th "Unless things change dramatically in the run up to the race then Dovi has got this one. Rossi will push him, Marc will show the vulnerability that he showed in the second part of last season." I got 17 'disagrees'....things did change dramatically though. The Yamahas fared better than we all thought.
