MotoGP » Yamaha: We have two riders that can beat Marc


Leaving out all outside influences, I think we can safely assume that Rossi will be going all out for his 10th Title (his words) next season. Jorge won't be twiddling his thumbs either. I think Marc's job will be a lot tougher next year. The Yamahas, (especially Rossi) will be out to unsettle him from the next tests onwards. (bare in mind that Lozzer was only a couple of thousandths off him in the latest test) Up to now Marc has been unflappable. He'll need all of his 'unflappableness' next year.

MotoGP » Michelin front main question for 2016


Fair enough Brian, I take your point. Consider though that Dovi had already lost his ride in 2010, which is probably what you were referring to, and had upset Honda by making them honour his contract, I feel that Dovi did OK in his final year by finishing 3rd in the Championship ahead of Dani. In his last race for them he set the fastest lap of the race, ahead of both Casey and Dani. There is no doubt that the boy can ride, just not quite an 'Alien' perhaps. Incidently, Dovi's contract was 'performance' related so he had already done enough to keep his ride, Honda didn't see it that way, And considering Stoner's Title, they were probably right.

MotoGP » Honda, Yamaha discuss Ducati advantages


" I want all his opponents to be given the same opportunity to be successful, so that the winner truly deserves the title beyond all reasonable doubt." Me too TF2, unfortunately it will never happen, except in 'Nervana' maybe. When I was a sprog in the late 50s, I naively thought that motorcycle racing was man versus man. I soon realised how wrong I was. Now that I'm an old fert, I still have to remind myself of that early error of thinking as I'm so desperate for it be about the riders and not the machines. I disagree about your views on Dorna and their manipulations though. I see it as futile attempts to make the racing fairer against the Factories constantly moving the goalposts. Still love it though. Incidently, I admit to getting something wrong when I was a tiddler, but I've only got something wrong on two other occasions, up to now.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks


Marquez takes more risks ? I never knew that. Good article and an insight into Lozzer and how he thinks. The lad can be too analytical in his approach to racing, according to his team, but he sure delivers when his confidence is there. (crash.net....It's a nickname, given affectionately. No different to 'Bradders' , 'Crazy Joe', 'Dovi' etc. etc. and much better than other ones sometimes used on here, 'yourgay' for instance, manages to escape your notice.)

MotoGP » Honda, Yamaha discuss Ducati advantages


As usual TrueFan.....I accept my chollicking, with good grace. ( next you'll be sticking it to me that Shamarone and S1 are the same person ) I feel that the extra fuel allowance wasn't needed by Ducati, and maybe not even used. The tyres allocation was more disadvantage than advantage. I admire Ducati for putting 6 bikes on the grid, but if only they'd concentrate on getting the Works Bikes up to scratch.
