MotoGP » 'Happy' Marquez breaks Stoner's Sepang record

As M.M. Has only had 1 season on a motogp bike, it's only his second test on the new version of the bike, new tyres to set the bike up and the tighter fuel restrictions they are working around I'd say it is pretty impressive. As for "stoner would be quicker" , who cares ? Maybe Agostini or Hailwood would be quicker, not really relevant though as you've got to be in it to win it.

MotoGP » Honda responds to Production Racer criticism

The whole class is a farce, if they just decided on a set of rules and stuck to them for several years it would be a much more level playing field. The satellite teams will always be a step behind the factory teams and because the rules keep changing the other teams never get the chance to develop enough to get close to the satellite bikes. This season is officially 2 classes but realistically you've got : factory, satellite, open class and CRT bikes , and if early indications are set to continue the yamaha open class bike is a class of its own. Are they going to have a winner of each class on race day ? Here's hoping dorna don't ruin wsbk as well as motogp, that would just leave bsb that would be worth watching.

MotoGP » Honda responds to Production Racer criticism

RSMick Unless you are you are directly connected to motogp or any other championship, then you are a race fan like me. As a race fan it is about watching good preferably close racing, what dorna has succeeded in doing is creating a championship that is overly segmented. As for your comment on wsbk, it goes without saying really that it will likely be a factory team that wins the championship, as just like motogp the factory teams have the biggest budgets, but unlike in motogp private teams in wsbk can get quite close to the level of factory teams as with it being a production based championship the disparity is nothing like the same level which helps keep things closer and more enjoyable to watch. It may be an alien concept to some, but for me it's more about the racing than who is actually winning.

WSBK » Marco Melandri excited by Aprilia return

I just hope that next season either the other riders start giving as good as they get where Mellandri is concerned or race control actually grow a pair and deal with him on the many occasions it is deserved. Giving marco what is probably the fastest bike on the grid is a recipe for disaster, " my bike eet ees queeker and thee other rideers should know thees and brace for eempact"

MotoGP » Marquez lauds 'important' second, faces title showdown

@ chikading Mm erring on the side of caution, that's a belter ! Try asking some of his many victims about his cautious racing style, he's blindingly quick (maybe a bad choice of words given his eye problems after he cautiously rammed somebody on a cool down lap) but a danger to all others on track with him. And for people to compare his rookie season with many other riders is a moot point seeing as the rookie rule was done away with to allow him to join the team with the best bike at the moment, how many other riders have had their rookie season on the best bike on the grid when there have been so few bikes capable of fighting for the win ?

MotoGP » Marquez: I just touched Pedrosa a little bit

As some have already stated, it was a racing incident but it doesn't change the fact that it was caused by Marquez. On one of the replays you could quite clearly see the back end of Pedrosa's bike twitch just as Marquez snagged the wire, if he hadn't made contact (no matter how slight) Pedrosa wouldn't have crashed so I'm really not sure how anybody can say it was Dani's own accident.
