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


Realist & Joesky.......can I comment that negative things can sometimes have a positive outcome. I feel that it can safely be said that Rossi and JB's failure to improve the bike was what made the higher-ups think differently. So that is probably the input that Rossi had on future iterations after he left. Do you think, like me, that Rossi would have stayed longer to see the project through had he been a younger man with more years to play with ? Rossi, Dovi, and Iannone and Gigi ?? There's a thought, lots of potential podiums there.

MotoGP » Helmet issue 'cost Lorenzo chance of victory'


Logically speaking if Jorge had vision problems which adversely affected his projected lap times, and his times show that he did not slow down........then the only conclusion to draw is that up to the lap where the lining slipped, Jorge must have been holding back. Without entering into whether he had helmet problems or not, it is difficult to believe that he was holding steady up to that point.

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.
