MotoGP » Lorenzo: I’d like to be competitive again


The picture is open to several different interpretations, neverless I used it highlight that quite a few riders get greater angles of lean than Rossi does. Jorge, Marc, and Dani are the highest ranking ones that do. As 'fulofit pointed out, I know nothing about motorsport, so a couple of questions I have are :- Why do riders get lean angles of 62+ degrees and then say the tyres aren't working ? Why do they say that the bikes are difficult to handle with a full tank when they all set their fastest laps in the first 3 or 4 ? How can they all set their fastest laps before the tyres are fully warmed up? How does Julian Ryder keep his job ? Why can 'talentfan' continue to post using his 'profX' tag ? Who is the greatest The Doctor or The Fisherman ?

MotoGP » Frustrated Lorenzo rallies against ‘disaster’ tyres


"Casey tweeted about how impressed he was with Rossi's race pace in PI......" He probably noticed that Rossi's winning time was 10 seconds quicker than he ever managed. Rossi's fastest race lap was too I believe. Different years should not be compared it's true, but Casey could see that Rossi was on it. I didn't see the tweet but good on Stoner for making it. Animosities laid to rest on both sides maybe.

MotoGP » Rossi rolls back years with ‘Island victory


salieri.....good posts. g.o.a.t is like beauty......it is in the eye of the beholder. As you say the arguments are unresolvable. Mike would ride any bike, any capacity, any number of cylinders or gears. He rode 3 different capacities in one day too. (others did as well, but with less success). In the modern era the term g.o.a.t is bandied about far too freely. Having said that, Rossi is the stand out candidate, I suppose. Would he have managed as well in Hailwood's era.....Would Mike have succeeded in today's ? We'll never know but I would suggest that the answer is 'yes' to both.

MotoGP » Frustrated Lorenzo rallies against ‘disaster’ tyres


In Parc Ferme Lozzer said that he was slow from lap 6 onwards due to the poor front tyre. A bit of a miscalculation on his part perhaps because he set his fastest lap of the race on lap 8. A casual look at all the lap times shows that Jorge didn't really slow down till lap 19, and another decline from 20 onwards. To give him the benefit of doubt he probably felt that he wasn't going to be competitive quite early in the race, but not that early. Duff tyre or duff setup ? We'll probably never know.
