MotoGP » We're closer to beating Marquez, says Rossi


SkyWilk: I would rather have real competition and different winners than "smiles" and "exuberance".. i want to watch a race, not a circus, or some sort of personality cult group. But it's funny that when Stoner and Lorenzo were praising each other, you lot had a very different opinion.
I'd say the race in Catalunya was both competitive and sporting and enjoyable for riders and viewers. Edge of the seat stuff. A great show. And without the "show" viewing figures would fall, therefore advertisers and sponsors would take their money elsewhere, investment in the series would decline and eventually the TV companies would drop MotoGP. The "circus", the "personalities", the hordes of ardent fans waving flags supporting their favourites, the celebrations- they are all essential for MotoGP to remain a world-wide success. I can't believe you'd prefer to watch a glum event.

MotoGP » We're closer to beating Marquez, says Rossi


Insidejob: "guys relax the only facti is stoner had no guts when he came to know that competition is going to be much more tougher than he run away from the battle thats the fact!" Thank you for your facts, Mr Fact. I'll make a note of them. We wouldn't want opinions to take precedence over facts now would we?
Here's a few more facts. 1. The fisherman retired some years ago. 2. The fisherman has no relevance to this years Championship. 3. This is a thread about Rossi and Marquez. 4. Have you noticed the joy, smiles, laughing, exuberance, happiness on the podiums these days since the fisherman decided to sling his hook instead of race MotoGP?

SkyWilk:
Tetley: Stoner and Lorenzo going at it swapping victories and showing respect at the podium any day.
PS - don't confuse self-admiration for respect towards others (re Jlo) and don't confuse simmering discontent for respect towards others (re stoner). DP was the only one of those 3 that had respect for anyone!
That quote should not have my name on it. I never wrote those words.

MotoGP » Crutchlow calm as erratic engine ruins race


PatrickD: Cal's qualifying performance here was an embarrassment.
The chances are that whatever the problem was in the race, it was there at the start and during warm-up and during qually, probably initially causing an undetectable performance drop but gradually getting worse until it stopped the bike altogether. While the bike was not displaying any adverse symptoms it is unlikely that they would change any significant component , so the data should show what the problem was and where the blame lies. It isn't because Cal isn't trying, and that will be obvious to Team management.

MotoGP » Crutchlow calm as erratic engine ruins race


mrfill: CC has a 2 year contract so should be safe for 2015 but Dovi is out of contract and rumour has it that Iannone has been offered a full factory bike.. Will they run 3 bikes? Get rid of Dovi? Sack Crutchlow? If true, it has to be one of the three.
I'm sure you're right about Cal's 2-year contract. Also, as I recall, Gigi's thoughts were "Why have two bikes doing development when we could have four?" and didn't he consequently announce that the satellite Ducati's would be full works bikes to enable him to learn where the bike's handicaps were more quickly? With a new bike due next year it would make sense to retain his current riders, as their direct comparisons will be valuable. There's a weak link somewhere in Cal's crew and that's where i would expect changes to be imminent.

MotoGP » ‘Power cut’ strategy costs Lorenzo


rattle: cosseiga rossi has the mindset to adapt? Wonder what happened in 2011 and 2012 then
What happened ? The Ducati bike was in decline and had stopped being unbeatable long ago. Ducati management thought they could get back to winning by just adding a World Champion rider. Ducati management subsequently ignored what the rider was telling them, although other riders had told them the same in previous seasons. VR46 and JB were able to improve the bike's times compared with the previous year but Ducati continued being unable or unwilling to make the much-needed improvements. After VR46 and JB left, the bike got even slower and its result became poorer. That's what happened. You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Q E D.
