MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


bikenut: No - Nicky gave up trying.
If Hayden had stopped trying he wouldn't have been there in 2012. And if you actually remember the 2011 season you'll recall it was actually Rossi who quite clearly was not giving it his all towards the end, and who can blame him seeing as he was leaving and ducati's reluctance to make the required changes to the bike (many of which were also asked for by Stoner and others)

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


bikenut:
realfan: @ bikeNUT 1st time on a new bike and you expect him to be as quick as Stoner who had been on the bike for years throughout its evolution getting used to all its quirks and problems, it's not me that's talking s#%t mate.
Rossi is a better racer than Dovi - agreed The Yamaha is a better package than the Ducati - agreed? And yet Dovi has beaten Rossi once this year and will do it again ???
The Ducati is not far off the Yamaha or the Honda this year, it has some advantages and so do the others, if Rossi , Marquez or Lorenzo were on a gp15 it would have won a race already this year.

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


bikenut: Well how do you think? The reason Dovi finished in front of Rossi in 2011 and 2012 is that Rossi couldn't get to grips with the Ducati - why else?
It's not so much that Rossi couldn't get to grips with the Ducati, more like the bike wasn't capable of better results. If you look at points tally for Rossi and Dovi on the Ducati, Rossi scored better than Dovi, it was only after Gigi took control and started making changes that Dovi's results started improving. Even Stoner's results were declining each year after winning the championship in 2007, and he's the one person who could ride around most of the bike's problems.

MotoGP » Moto2 staying single engine post-2018


SmoothCriminal:
ProfessorX:
toph: Moto2 used to be the best racing to watch, multiple bikes battling for the win, and never knowing who would win. But now it is getting boring and Moto3 is becoming the best racing to watch.
I think I would rather watch sidecars.
Don't bother posting here then.
Well said SmoothCriminal, one less troll would be a good start.

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


ProfessorX:
grantrd: Whenever Ducati are involved the rules and regulations are always slowly but surely tweaked and adjusted to suit them more than anyone else.... If you can't understand why Yamaha and Honda would be upset that after decades of development, investment and competition at the top of the pile, suddenly have to give up huge amounts of ground to a competitor who dug themselves into hole. And need to have huge amounts of benefits just to save face then you are a bigger fool than anyone could have expected... Dorna are manipulating the series to make it more entertaining, I just feel that any success Ducati get from it is hollow....
i think it's funny how MM's outright pace advantage has been slashed and now Ducati have (almost) podium pace. Funny how that works out, I think Bridgestone actually made a better tire this year.
In case you haven't noticed they've been on the podium already.

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


bikenut:
Painless: Makes you wonder doesn't it. What would Rossi or Marquez do on the GP15? Can Dovi take that extra step? In 2011 he had a new team mate in his Honda Repsol Team. That team mate score 10 wins and Dovi none. I hope Dovi can find that bit extra but past performance is a bit worrying.
Well I do wonder how MM would go on the Ducati but already know how Rossi would go ........
Has Rossi had a secret test on the gp15 that nobody else knows about ?

WSS » Cluzel: Sofuoglu has trained how to hit bikes and not crash


@ profx This has nothing to do with your statement that the Honda marketing department won the championship, I do welcome a rational response to my question though. And vdm making "clumsy mistakes" as you put it in the assen races could have something to do with the fact that he was having to over ride the bike, just like his predecessor did (who just happens to be leading the championship now). If anything vdm was pushing it even further due to the fact that it was his and the teams home race.
