RR » Guy Martin: Tyco BMW deal stopped me from retiring


billy fitzsimons: I just can't understand how michael is not on the bmw,there's nobody more committed,and as the saying goes ,if it's not broke why fix it.
It's not his riding which puts teams off. It's his mouth and his attitude. He doesn't turn up at promotional events e.g. at Barton Bike Night he was advertised but didn't show- the people on the stand where he should have been said he hadn't contacted them, they didn't know where he was, and they were definitely not at all pleased. It was revealed in MCN that he sometimes doesn't show up at meetings or appointments with some of the top people in International racing. He allows his mouth to run off, such as at the NW200 when his brother was being interviewed on TV and Michael interrupted in a very ignorant manner. He's his own worst enemy when it comes to getting lucrative rides, and most teams don't keep him for longer than season. Sad but true.

MotoGP » ‘Healthy’ MotoGP facing ‘optimistic future’


Mr Fill, I reckon 2015 will be pretty much a re-run of 2014 as not much has changed.
Not much has changed? How about- new Suzuki, new Ducati, Cal on a Honda, Iannone on a works bike, Dovi moving forward, Rossi on a charge, seamless shift for Yam, Marc doesn’t like his new bike, Dani does, will Redding break through?. Looks interesting to me and who knows what else will happen?
2016 brings equality of electronics and single set of rules - hallelujah. Tyres a different make but all will have the same choice.
True, but the bikes will need revisions to suit the new tyres and wheel size, some teams, some bikes and some riders will adapt better than others, and the tyres may not suit all.
considering the mess motogp was in, it is recovering well. It may be very unfashionable but I think Dorna have cracked it and done a pretty good job in a short time.
Agreed. I’m optimistic.

MotoGP » ‘Healthy’ MotoGP facing ‘optimistic future’


The scenario which they describe appears to be going in the right direction and I am encouraged by the signs, particularly reviewing the fuel carried and the engine changes allowed. There will always be the have's and have not's but the skill of the team's individual specialists in the back room, in the pits and on the track, will hopefully now take on a more important aspect than the previous "throw money at it" mindset. All in all, I reckon 2015 will be a year full of interest, although 2016 will be dominated by who can adapt and make best use of the change in tyre supplier.

MotoGP » Marquez beats Mees in Superprestigio


Number76: Given a few more laps I think Mees would have found the time to make his move...but he didn't have a few more laps. He would have had to bully MM out of the way and probably should have. MM would have done it for certain.
Sorry, but your scenario is flawed. Once Mees had his "few more laps" and had got in front, we can equally say that , "Given a few more laps" , Marquez would have repassed Mees for the Victory. Or maybe you think the race should end when Mees got in front ? The race stops when the flag falls. Marquez won. Mees didn't. No amount of "if"s and imaginary scenarios will change that. Anything else is pure speculation and wishful thinking.

No need to be sorry. Anything beyond what actually happened is exactly that, speculation. That's why I specifically said "I think" which means that is what I think. You think differently, good for you. Did you read into my comment somehow that I didn't think Marc deserved the win or that I was arguing the results? Not at all. Relax bud, it's a discussion board.
I’m happy to read your response. You are certainly entitled to your opinion and to say what you think. My point is that “I think” should be based on facts, not speculation, otherwise it is “I imagine” which is very close to “I pretend”. And you’ll know there are plenty of posters on here who claim their opinion is fact when it isn’t. But no matter- I’m happy to listen to your well-made points. Cheers, M
