MotoGP » Rossi mistake ends Marquez victory battle


TrueFan......I don't believe Rossi settled for 2nd. By his own admission he tried to make a break once he got to the front and was at his limit already when he made his mistake, Marc got through and, at HIS own admission he tried to pull a gap. So Rossi would have had to ride over his limit to catch him, let alone pass him. It's academic anyway, Marc was consistently 3 tenths a lap faster than Rossi. Dani was fast too, his fastest lap was on lap 20 and a couple of tenths faster than Rossi as well. I don't think there is any doubt that Yamaha are on the back foot at the moment......and there is not much wrong with the Bridgestones come to that.

MotoGP » Marquez: Rossi will feel 22 again at Mugello!


I've made this point before. Barry got to the top by being a brilliant and brave rider. Part of his armoury too was to 'play' the media, play 'mind games', pinch all the new parts before his team mates, etc. etc. Even cheating occasionally. It amuses me (having watched the emergence of both) that Barry is loved for it, while Rossi is reviled for the very same things. People on here were saying how great it was when Jorge, Casey, and Dani, were loved up in Parc Ferme & on the Podium. Now they are fed up with Marc & Rossi being matey. Whatever we think, whoever we support, whoever we 'hate', at the moment in each team the #1 rider is ahead in the points over the #2 rider.

MotoGP » Marquez: Rossi will feel 22 again at Mugello!


AussieNSW....How right you are.....Barry did what ever was needed to win, but he also did a hell of a lot to put GP's on the map. He wasn't afraid to kick the IOM TT into touch either. Re the safety issue, the only name worth mentioning is Stoner. Casey tested the kitty litter & run offs for them. :) Yearby23.... Sorry to be picky but......The tyre company put the wall up. And Rossi never wanted a competitive team mate, that is true. I should have put that in my post about Barry, he used to block potential team mates too. (None of the riders do if they are honest, and I'm not sure that the Manufacturers do either, it just takes points off of each other)

MotoGP » 'Same story' for Dovizioso, Crutchlow and Ducati


Dr Relliscada......."Before Rossis Abomination Ducati had issues but hit victories and podiums." Before you use the term 'Rossi's Abomination' you need to work out whether you are a Stoner fanatic or a Rossi hater. If the bike was so good before Casey jumped ship, explain how it came in 4th in the Championship, behind a broken legged Rossi. You are right that at the end of the season Stoner managed wins, but that was solely down to him......NOT the bike,( and it chucked him up the road in 5 races.) Rossi and JB did what they were employed to do, and that was to make the bike more rideable. Dovi is setting really fast laps these days, even though the engine doesn't produce more power than the Jap bikes, unlike 2007/2008 If you, or anyone else, needs further proof on what POS he handed over, (and how hard he had to ride it) compare Casey's 2010 stats to his 2011 stats.

MotoGP » 'Same story' for Dovizioso, Crutchlow and Ducati


For gods sake, we were talking about whether the Ducati has declined, stayed the same, or has improved. Sod all to do whether Casey could ride it better than Rossi or not. Stoner's last year on the Ducati it finished 4th in the Championship (mainly because he non-scored 5 times). The following year on the Honda he smashed everybody and didn't fall off once. He didn't fall off in 2007 either. Logical conclusion if you are neutral is that the Ducati declined during Casey's tenure, and that was down to Ducati and NOT Stoner. Incidently, why do Ducati fans abhor the Beam frame but were OK with the CF frame ? My Ducati back in 1960 had a single top tube frame. Handled like a dream compared to English bikes.

MotoGP » 'Same story' for Dovizioso, Crutchlow and Ducati


Realist......Dovi is setting some seriously fast times on the bike, enough to show that it can go round corners better than it used to. It's a long time since it's been put on the front row and that is not all down to super softs. (extra rear grip makes the understeer worse) With all due respect to Cal, he doesn't know whether it's improved or not, he's still trying to get to grips with it.
