MotoGP » Rossi 'a little worried' by front tyre dilemma


Sometimes people get the wrong end of the stick. Stoner publically slated that Rossi's failure on the Ducati was due to the fact that he wasn't able to adapt to the bike and ride it as it was supposed to be ridden ! Totally forgetting that Ducati paid Rossi (and his team) squillions to make the bike more 'rideable'. Something that they succeeded in even though Ducati wouldn't support their efforts properly.

MotoGP » MotoGP stars talk WSBK team orders


If manufacturers want team orders they have two options.....only employ one rider (thereby negating the need) or make riders sign a pre-season contract to that effect. The guys on the BT coverage mentioned team orders and made it clear that no one in GP likes it. To me it is unfair on us punters and, more importantly, grossly unfair on each riders crew. Where's 'fullofit' with his input on this ?

MotoGP » MotoGP stars talk WSBK team orders


Years ago the great Phil Read defied Yamaha when they stated that they wanted another great rider Bill Ivy to win the World Championship. Phil told Bill that if he wanted the Title he'd have to beat him on the track. Phil won the Championship. The right thing in my view. If team orders are the way to decide things then ProfX/TalentFan is right when he says, thousands of times, racing is fixed and we shouldn't be watching it.
