MotoGP » ‘Time is a gentleman’ in Marquez, Rossi rift


Joan Williams: VR "qualified" 12th, how would you expect him to even catch up with Lorenzo from there
There was no need to bust a gut and qualify higher- he had to start at the back
Joan Williams:His times were slow, he would never have finished higher than 4th,
Slow ? He blitzed the field and sped from last to 4th. If he hadn't been blocked by MM93 he could have very likely improved to better than 4th.
Joan Williams "You could see MM preparing to attack Lorenzo, but every time he did Lorenzo pulled away.
What we all saw was MM93 keeping a steady distance behind JLo, and not once challenging him.
Joan Williams “So all you VR fans looking through hazy yellow specs, put that in your pipes and smoke it.
and yourself, being totally unbiased while at the same time obviously hating VR46 has 20-20 infallible hindsight ? I wonder what mind-altering substance is in YOUR pipe?

MotoGP » ‘Time is a gentleman’ in Marquez, Rossi rift


Gilles: Dani ran wide and even if Dani had overtaken, Lorenzo would have still won the championship by finishing 2nd. On you assumption that Marc wouldn't have overtaken, it is still the same result. You are obviously missing a very important point, so please do your homework before spouting off incorrect comments
Your argument relies on a big "if" and a bigger "assumption" and your conclusion ignores the fact that MM93 had deliberately obstructed VR46 for lap after lap. Without that interference VR would probably have been able to improve on 4th, in which case JLo finishing second would have given a different championship outcome. Therefore I can justifiably quote "You are obviously missing a very important point, so please do your homework before spouting off incorrect comments" back at you.

MotoGP » Honda: This was our biggest mistake…


Nakamoto " “This was our biggest mistake for this year. Because as you know Sepang is very high temperature and high humidity. Usually in this kind of conditions the engine loses power. Therefore less aggressive. " High temperature, yes. But surely it has been proven that high humidity increases power. There used to be water/steam after-market generators which claimed to increase power. It is noticable that on a foggy morning an engine responds more crisply.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


samas: @mark.sandman.5 I'm soooooooooooooooooooo happy I grew up before the introduction of PC. @Bubbleup. Yes the Ulster Grand Prix was once one of the great races of GP .
Samas is 100 percent right about Ulster GP and Manx TT Road racing where the record AVERAGE lap speeds are in the region of 133 mph on public roads, as compared to MM93's 2015 lap records at Mugello and Silverstone being 109 mph average. In terms of top speeds attained, Ianone has clocked 217 mph somewhere, while at the NW200 Jessop clocked 208 mph on public roads in 2012 and 206 mph was registered by Anstey during practice for the 2006 TT at the end of Sulby Straight where I have sat on the grassy bank next to the footpath alongside the road, with the bikes passing literally 20 feet away. And what's more the Road Races have no charge for spectators, except in the few grandstands, and you can rub shoulders and chat to the riders in the pits for free. No Prima Donnas here, just blokes ( a

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


mark.sandman.5: Unfortunately, I've never seen the 93 or 99 live, but I would love too.
I went to the Spanish MotoGP a couple of years ago. On the Friday we sat on the front row of the Grandstands, directly opposite the pit lane garages of VR, JLo, Cal and Dovi. The riders were mere dots. My Nikon camera on full optical and digital zoom could not get decent pics. At the end of Free Practice, Vale faced the stands and gave us a brief wave. Cal gave us a little wave as he walked into the garage. JLo and Dovi did not acknowledge the fans in any way. On Race Day, we sat in the Grandstands opposite pit lane exit. It was difficult to know who was who because the numbers were illegible and the helmet colours were blurred at that distance. When the bikes flashed by it was hard to identify the team or rider. We got most of our information from a Big Screen. Great atmosphere , though you see much, much more on TV.

MotoGP » Honda postpones Sepang data - again


mrfill:
ProfessorX: It matters not about the data, the video clearly shows NN hitting Rossi trying to go around a block pass. It's called a block pass for a reason, and NN instigated his own crash by colliding with Rossi's leg. How can you expect someone to not push off or move their leg after it is hit? It boggles the mind what excuses people will come up to let that kid off the hook. He's no kid though, he's spoiled and he has no problems hitting and taking people out to get what he wants.
A block pass is done on the racing lane, not in the car park
A block pass is not done on the racing line, but by deviating from the racing line and leaving the other rider with nowhere to go and no options except to slow down. Q E D.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


Insidejob: Casey isn't looking for a job. He's already a multi-millionaire.
The trouble with being a multi-millionaire is that maintaining a multi-millionaire lifestyle eats your capital away quickly, very quickly and you have to pay multi-millionaire tax levels. CS's accountants will very likely be advising him that he can only go so long before he's going to need a top-up. His future as a motorcycle racer is limited to just a few more years, and he has shown no interest in building a position in team management or working for Dorna, so he'll be aware that as a rider he needs to earn money now, to ease his future life. All conjecture, of course, and he may be talking to Duacati just to get Honda to raise the ante.

Luvnit: Stoner wasn't exactly complimentary when he left Ducati so what makes anyone think that Ducati would want him and why old he go back when he just about flogged himself to death with no-one at Ducati giving a toss!
OK but- Ducati now has new owners and more money to spend. Preziosi is gone and Gigi is guiding the team. Ducati Corse now has a different outlook and all the aspects which CS complained about are gone. So it would be a fresh start under improved circumstances. However, if Honda are prepared to let CS go it begs the question "is he up to the job" ? Surely Honda would keep him if he was on message and on the pace? If CS was still the best tester, Honda have the cash to keep him, if only to prevent him joining a rival team, so they must believe that the benefits he brings are not significant. In CS's eyes, if Honda let him go, where would he earn his corn? Fishing doesn't pay too well.
