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 » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


Racing is over so we are reduced to arguing about who was the best rider out of Stoner & Rossi. It is immaterial whether Stoner could get results on the last iteration of the Ducati. Two reasons spring to mind, Casey was well used to the bike and it's foibles, so it is hardly surprising that he got results ( it burnt him out in the process though ). Secondly Rossi wasn't paid to win on it, he and JB were paid to turn the bike into something that anyone could ride, which they did. The anti Rossi brigade would have more credence if they stopped pretending that their animosity is directed at his fans.

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.
