MotoGP » Dovizioso plays down fastest lap


I'm Dovi's fan but this tyre situation is stupid, leading to stupid Quallifying, and silly first few laps. Whose idea was it to give the 'open' class super softs just to begger up the front two rows ? Having ranted I have to say the guy can ride, special tyres or not. Remember when the soft tyre used to make the Ducati handling worse ?

MotoGP » Dovizioso plays down fastest lap


Ayrton Senna.......By 3rd string, I was referring to the fact that Honda ran 2 Works bikes and they had to provide a 3rd for Dovi. His contract for that year was performance related, which he met. Honda wanted to renege but Dovi stuck to his guns, so does anybody really believe that the Japanese would give him equal kit to the other two ?

MotoGP » How big is too big for MotoGP?


BJR.......I hear you. All those things are affected, as you say, so bunging a normal size rider on a bike designed around a tiddler needs thinking about. I was merely thinking of a way to make it fair to all, manufacturers and riders alike. I think there should be a minimum weight and possibly even a minimum wheelbase, I just think that sticking a load of lead somewhere on the small man's bike is not the way to go. What you say will go someway to explaining why riders usually need a year to get a new bike how they want it, and some never get it right. In the older times, as you know, the riders could ride anything. Two classes in one day was the norm, sometimes three !! In modern times I suppose the standout rider for that would be Stoner. Come to that I can't really think of another one. ( Dovi maybe, without the win rate of course )
