MotoGP » Rossi and Marquez: Racing incident


For those saying that it is unfair that ducati have concessions maybe right in the long term, but in the short term they are handicapped by not having the right tyre for the races. It may well be that both Ducatis would have done even better if they had access to the Extra hard tyre. Bloody tyres, I'm sick of races being dictated by tyre choice.

MotoGP » Rossi and Marquez: Racing incident


Joeski.......Rossi was 5th fastest in warmup so Marc had other riders to worry about not just Rossi. If Cal said 12-15 laps in the low 39s he's flat out wrong, it was 3 under 39.5. Still makes me wrong as well though. I took Marc's times, he only did 4 laps, and Rossi's equivalent laps were slightly slower. Admittedly Rossi set faster laps after. It does make you wonder though, if it was that obvious what made Marc come to the grid on the Extra Hard ??

MotoGP » Dovizioso hails rostrum run as 'dream come true'


Further to my post above, regarding my point on Dovi's loyalty. In his last year on the Honda, after he forced their hand, he repaid them with 3rd in the Championship. He repaid Tech3 by beating his team mate both years, and 4th in the Championship behind 3 Works riders (aliens) before going to Ducati. Even though he was paid less than his team mate he beat him. The guy is loyal and always gets more out of his bikes than expected. He doesn't cost his employers much in damaged fairings either.

MotoGP » Dovizioso hails rostrum run as 'dream come true'


nikisan (and Realist ?!).......Maybe my definition of 'shafted' is different to yours ? Honda refused to honour Dovi's contract, despite exceeding the criteria that they, themselves, set. Yamaha, despite Dovi's performances (and stumping up his own cash to change brand of brakes ) closed his future prospects because they wanted Rossi. I very much doubt he favoured Ducati over Yamaha, works contract or not. Beside that Ducati paid Cal more money so I could have said that Ducati 'shafted' him as well. All the Factories had their reasons but Dovi still got the nasty end of the stick.

MotoGP » Dovizioso hails rostrum run as 'dream come true'


Nikisan...I don't think they would either. Fair comment on Cal. He had a years Tech3 experience start on Dovi , but as you say, Dovi has been around a lot longer. Nothing special hurt a bit, though I see where you are coming from. :) Dovi is not an Alien but consistently the best of the rest. Iif the Ducati continues to improve this season then he may move up a notch. I really hope so.
