MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda


TrueFan: I think this kid could do well. He might need a PR coach if he's going to win the fans over, but the way he rides, he could do very well. I like having some controversial riders in the paddock. It shakes up the status quo. Good luck to him. It seems like a big step, and it is, so for his sake, I hope it works out for him. A couple of decades ago, people like Eddie Lawson, Wayne Gardner, Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz and Mick Doohan came to the 500s without ever passing through the "feeder" classes, and they did quite well, thank you. Times have changed, so I hope this young kids minders have done their arithmetic.
I am not sure about Wayne Gardner - rest all had SuperBike experience underneath them and they knew how to control those 150 plus BHP beast and tame it before they came to motogp/then FIM 500. so learning curve was slighly more linear. See Luis Salom in Moto2 where is he now compared to last year. When you go to heavier bike certain guys ad

MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda


Evolution: Not Lcr Give this Guy a Repsol Honda And He will destroy Marc Marquez for sure.
. Then why he is isnt able to dominate Moto 3 like Marquez did in 125cc on a derby/Rossi on Nastra Azzuro Aprilia 125cc. I guess he is coming to Motogp too soon i mean even a bigger risk than maverick vinaeles (with suzuku i suppose). I dunt expect him to do wonders and at the max I expect him to be top open bike if not pressure will get him and destroy his entire career. I guess he is here due to marketing reasons as Australia is a big motogp market given likes Wayne Garnder/Mick Doohan/Daryl Beattie and Casey Stoner. Motogp needs australian market and currently who is capable is only Jack Miller. I suspect 80% chance he will become another Steffan Bradl- time will prove whether i am right or wrong. however no disrespect to your optimism and no offense meant - logically I dunt see anyody who can touch Marque Marquez.

MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda


TalentFan: Its hard to see what Miller has done to earn the ride. There's a lot of variables and questions surrounding the LCR team next season for sure! As it stands... I'm thinking that only Redding's gutsy rides (& his relations with Honda & MarcVDS) have got him onto the Satellite Honda with MarcVDS... I'm still pretty sure that his sheer size is going to make his task an impossible one, and HRC only put Microbes onto Repsols (cos they understand the Laws of Physics even if half of Crash posters seem not to). I can't see wins or even top 5's in Reddings future right now. Even though the lad has talent and ability in Spades.. I think his mass is going to be the deciding factor (unless Dorna DO something about this). How big / heavy is Miller? I know he's not super-small, but I'm betting he is way lighter than Redding is - so if he's good enough, he has more MotoGP potential simply through being smaller.
. Dont think Heaviness is a disadvantage at all pa

MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda


anon7: I still can't quite work out exactly what's Miller's done to be given the fast track up to MotoGP. Sure the kid's got talent and won some races, but he's hardly dominated Moto3 and most of his wins have come in last lap fights. Marquez, Rins and Fenati (on a good day) are all at least as talented in my book. It appears his passport and controversial personality are what's getting him there as opposed to just raw talent. The BT Sport commentators seem think his goon riding is wonderful, but for me the novelty wore off after I'd seen it once.
I partially agree to your comments his last lap fights/Race craft/his braking are top class. But what has he done to go to MotoGP directly. what has he different from Rossi/Jorge Lorenzo/Casey Stoner/Marc MArquez to go directly to Motogp. if he had SBK experience , be it WSBK/AMA/AusSBK/Jap SBK/BSB i would agree with then the current achievements provided he won atleast handful of races. I am quite certain there i

F1 » Raikkonen undecided on F1 retirement


I was a Kimmi fan during his McLaren and Lotus days but not sure why he still thinks ferrari is utlimate place for him which I dont digest. I have also felt that he was not in his prime form when he won his world title and always felt Mclaren is ideal place for Kimmi or even Red Bull to a certain extent. I suspect joining McLaren Honda should be the way to go for Kimmi I hope he thinks or start thinking from where he is stopping to think now.

MotoGP » Moto2: Alex Rins signs for Pons


Yearby23: Good career move, we've seen how quickly Vinales has adapted to Moto2 with a good team, lets hope Rins can do the same! Does this mean A.Marquez might be a 1-man Repsol sponsored Moto2 rider next year?
I suspect Maverick Vinales is moving to Motogp too soon. I somehow feels to that too I suspect moving with Suzuki was the right one and not sure why he didnt try any Honda if at all he wants to move to Motogp (not sure Moto3 bluesens b grade remarks had some effect). Couple of things I felt would have been better. 1. Wait for one more year in Moto2 and shoudnt have been bad and get more wins and get to a factory seat with Honda(Repsol) or Yamaha(Factory M1). 2. Win Moto2 championship couple of times (dominate it) and then leave Moto2 with enough credibility. Agree he won a Moto2 race and was competitve however I suspect there were few tiny things he still needs to improve. I always felt he is not getting to grips with qualifying in Moto2 but in rac

F1 » Verstappen completes first proper F1 test


I am not sure at this juncture if its the right move. My brain says he will get his career destroyed and easily succumb to pressure. On the flip side, my heart says all the best wishes and good luck to him. However having said this I was huge fan of Jos Verstappen his driving in Wet was only second to Senna and Schumi during late 1990s and earl 2000s exhibiting his skill with an underpowered && underdeveloped orange arrows..

MotoGP » Modest Brno expectations for in-form Redding


second rider should be a guided young talent and it has to be scot redding and not Miller who is yet to prove something in Motogp/Moto2 or even in moto-3(by winning world championship). Maverick as per me is entering too soon without proving enough in Moto-2(although he is having an impressive year with a win already in his debut year). If I were his manager I will ask him to focus this year and get couple more wins and next year build on it and atleast get 5 to 6 wins(OR win a world championship by being consistent like he did in Moto3)

MotoGP » Camier: I’m sure I can go faster


He should be given a second chance. from what I hear, his Aprila was completely different from Maz Biaggi RVS-4. There were lot of difference in specs. Suzuki year he was in fact little unlucky. Now see where is Eugine his confidence went down. First win I suspect was from confidence he built up over 2013 by winning numerous races for aprili RSV-4 I dont expect to see any close to that form nor a repeat of first win with suzuki itself. Somehow dont see that coming. Ideally based on camiers credentials he should be given a fair shot at motogp or at a factory/statellite support in WSBK. He will be an asset in WSBK for sure. no disrespect to toni elias however if get a chance its a shame to see camier struggling to get a ride.
