MotoGP » Crutchlow: If we can alter my bike we’ll get results


mrfill......Will they lose Engine development ? As you say that will finish them, it was the real reason that they went 'open'. They didn't have a fuel problem before, and the soft tyre doesn't give them much advantage other than in Qually. Those in the know (not us on Crash:) ) say that they need an engine change so they can mount it in the frame differently. As you know the present configuration doesn't allow them to 'tune out' the understeer, and the electronics have stopped Casey's rear wheel steering method.

MotoGP » ‘Scared’ Lorenzo haunted by Assen injury


therealDave "No one has suggested that VR at 35.........." I have trD....more than once. The team mate is always but always in a riders head. (Sheene's team mates used get it hard if they were a threat). Last season must have been hard to take for Jorge and over the winter must have played on his mind. Then in testing, suddenly Rossi puts his head over the parapet. Must have played a part in Lozzer's early form, and a bad start to anything can compound very quickly. Jorge will be back, no doubt, but at what level ?

MotoGP » ‘Scared’ Lorenzo haunted by Assen injury


insidejob......You might have had a pop at Hopper, who I was a big fan of, but I had to laugh. Your second post mentioned colour. I was generalising, not being swayed by Rossi's reputation. They were sitting way back on the grid, Marc was 50ft in front and Rossi (his team mate don't forget) was 10 feet behind. I think, on this occasion, that Rossi was on his mind more than Marc was. I remember once before in a wet race Jorge forced himself into the lead and immediately put his hand up hoping the race would be stopped, so who knows how big his worry was in the race. Anyway, Jorge's return to form can't come soon enough imo.
