MotoGP » Riders want changes after ‘dangerous’ pit start


Madness. There are different tyres available for Factory and Open bikes. There are different tyres for different tracks. There are different tyres for different track temperatures. There are different constructions. There are different compounds. There are different asymetric tyres for right or left handed dominant tracks. I've stopped listing them because I'm boring myself now. My point ? How come there wasn't a tyre for the conditions at Sachs ?

MotoGP » Pits to victory for Marquez in Germany


V4Poweeeer.......My apologies on the vague bit. My post was responding to Brian who said that we need Stoner back and that he is the only one with the speed to tackle Marc. I disagree and said why. I feel that it is better than hitting the disagree button. Jorge was running away with the Championship and Dani was performing well at the time, so I feel that Casey was on the back foot. So he didn't have the speed then so I don't think he would have it now. Logically thinking I would say that remembering that Jorge and could beat Casey and that they can't beat Marc....how could Casey ? He is happier in retirement and he's left us all with some great memories. It should stay that way.

MotoGP » Pit limiter surprise for Dovizioso


Dovi giving an honest appraisal here. Doesn't complain, just gets on with the job. He doesn't have high expectations (understandably) but still gives his best and fights right to the end. There were complaints on here when Ducati chose to go 'open' but as yet there are no advantages, fuel isn't an issue and soft tyres don't last race distance. The reason for going open was purely to enable engine development, which will take time (Ducati is not Honda). I hope that Dovi stays with Ducati and gets to realise the promises made to him when he first signed for them.

MotoGP » Pits to victory for Marquez in Germany


Brian....I admire your loyalty but thinking that Casey would figure in todays' results is wishful thinking. You seem to have forgotten that he retired because he wasn't enjoying racing any longer. The reasons for that are still there. He retired in 2012 finishing 3rd in the Championship, convincingly beaten by Lozzer and Dani. I know he missed races through injury but it has to be remembered that he was injured trying to beat his team mate. Don't get me wrong, I miss him too, I just think that the lad retired at the right time.
