MotoGP » Marquez unbeaten at Sachsenring since 2009


@ Garcia You're absolutely right there is a difference between a dangerous rider and a hard rider, unfortunately for MM he has 1 leg dangling on either side of the fence, mostly he's a hard rider but you can virtually guarantee he'll pull at least 1 dangerous move in most race weekends. It's almost as if he has some sort of divine right to put his bike wherever he wants on the track (or dirt when cutting corner, eg Laguna seca)whether or not there is somebody already on that specific piece of tarmac. As most racers would tell you, "rubbing is racing" .......... Ramming into others does not fall under the banner of rubbing though.

MotoGP » Barbera: I don't know what Miller was thinking


JedPB67:
realfan: He's doing better than the current moto3 champ is in moto2, Alex Marquez is in possibly the best team on one of the best bikes but is in 15th place in the championship, if you take the factory teams and satellite bikes out of the equation Miller is doing quite well. Some riders adapt to certain bikes and others don't , nobody except Miller knows if he made the correct decision.
At this point A.Marquez is doing exactly the same thing he did when he went to Moto3, if the pattern continues he'll be winning by the end of next season.
You could argue the same for J. Miller, in 2013 he was 7th with 110 points (213 behind 1st place) and 2014 he was 2nd with 276 points (2 behind 1st place). A. Marquez was 4th in 2013 with 213 points (110 behind 1st place) and won in 2014 with 278 points , so by that logic Jack Miller should actually improve by more than Marquez next year.

MotoGP » Barbera: I don't know what Miller was thinking


Realist: So much for Miller coming into the class and showing why Moto2 isn't necessary. I wonder where everybody who were rampant Miller fans disappeared to? There hasn't been much chatter about him at all after he got into the class and didn't set the world alight.

MotoGP » Marquez: Today I learned motocross from Rossi


MM has stepped it up a gear now, not only making dangerous moves but now trying make out that the other rider was in the wrong. When you see the last chicane from above there is absolutely no way he was getting round the corner without using Rossi as a mobile berm. Although this was far from being his worst move how is it possible that dorna has not taken action against him ?

MotoGP » Redding: It’s wearing me down


Realist:
realfan: Redding proved last season that if he has a team behind him that know how to make the set up changes he needs to get the best from the bike he can go well, unfortunately for him he had to move to mvds this season to get the factory bike he had been promised and the team have zero experience with the bike. If it had been the same team as last year he wouldn't be struggling like he is at the moment.
Redding and his team have access to the HRC rider's data just as Crutchlow does. At some point you guys are going to have to stop putting all of the blame on Pike/MVdS, and consider that most of the issues revolve around Redding.
Having all the data in the world makes no difference if you don't know what to do with it !

MotoGP » Redding: It’s wearing me down


another93: 2016 ?? hmm.. seriously now .. if his of performance now as it is continues till the end of season ..then what...the funny thing is even with a superior machine compared to last year, he is slow ,had he been riding that open honda from last year he would have the same results as now. I mean at the end of the season aren't all the teams looking at the POINTS and rider standing and all that stuff. Reddings spot will be under fire because Rabat is the only one keeping Mark Van De Straten happy in moto2 and Redding disappionting him with his poor results.

MotoGP » Redding: It’s wearing me down


another93:
MrBojangles: You guys are hilarious. It's his FIRST year with a team NEW to MotoGP. His first year is not so much a deal as a team's first year. The factory and other teams like Tech 3 have been around for ages. I give this squad minimum 2 years before they start to 'get' it. Realistically, even 3-4 years. Rome wasn't built overnight.
You are wrong , that is not how Redding feels . Last year he complained about the open honda being to slow , this year he has got a better machine and no major improvements. BESIDES IT WAS REDDING WHO'D SAID 'TOP 6' without even finishing a GP on the bike , It's either because of thenew team or that redding is not good enough.. i find the latter to believe
Last year he was with a team that knew how to get the best out of the bike, this year the bike is better but the team don't know what to do with it and it's the rider that is getting the brunt of the criticism.
