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.

MotoGP » Marquez beats Mees in Superprestigio

tetley Now Baker the specialist is out, there will be a number of riders thinking they could do well. There could be some shocks, and some surprises, but I expect the winner will be either the GOAT, or the KID. And you know who I mean.
I don't know where the GOAT was, possibly up on a hill, yodelaytit-tee, but, as expected, the KID won. He's an exceptional talent.

MotoGP » Ducati GP15 set for Sepang II debut?

Ducati, and in particular Gigi are doing the right thing in developing the GP15 at their own pace. Whatever they are doing, they certainly won't be sharing news of their progress with the media and us, and especially not the other teams. I'd make a guess that not appearing at Sepang One is as much to hide their progress and performance from their rivals as it is from late development. I would even recommend that you don't believe any of the talk in the media, even if they claim it came directly from Ducati, because mis-informing is a tactic often employed in situations such as this. Sensibly we should defer judgement until the new bike is revealed and raced. Gigi is a thinking man. Data gained from private testing is his education. And by "education" I mean "eDUCATIon".

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’

To Like yourselves, I recognise that some elements of some postings may be considered "over the top", but surely it cannot be logical to delete one person's a post in it's entirety, while allowing someone else to reply to it ? Surely the reply is irrelevant when the initial point is absent ? That makes a one-sided debate. Can I request that you only delete ( or asterisk ) the parts or words which you object to and allow the jist of the post to remain ? Otherwise the reply makes no sense and should also be deleted. And while I'm talking to you, I'd like to say "Thanks" for a great website and "Thanks" for providing such an excellent forum. Sincerely.
