MotoGP » Honda postpones Sepang data - again


If Honda had conclusive proof they would have released it to The World, Dorna and the FIM all at the same time and without asking anyone's permission. They would have shouted it from the rooftops to discredit VR46 and exhonerate MM93. There can only be two reasons why they haven't released it. One- it is inconclusive and open to alternative interpretations which would negate their allegations and protestations. Or, Two- it would reveal MM93's tactics via throttle positions relative to track position, braking levels and braking points, and suspension traces which disclose that MM93 was not trying to escape each time he passed VR46. Or both. If MM93's data was overlaid with VR46's data, then the truth may be revealed. Honda wouldn't want that.

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?


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.

Merci, mon brave. A votre sante.

MotoGP » Rossi: Next year will be another story


CRASH,net reports "Valentino Rossi insists the allegations and acrimony surrounding the conclusion of the 2015 MotoGP season won’t affect him during next year’s campaign." Wishful thinking, Vale. It may not affect VR's capabilities and his mind set, but if it alters the way that those around him race then it will certainly affect him and he will have to give in to it, or retaliate. Either way is not good for Vale. The aggressor always has the upper hand, as retaliation is always penalised and criticised as "losing the plot". If Race Direction can award penalty points for getting in the way in qualifying, then they ought also to penalise it during racing. If VR's competitors are better than him, let them prove it fairly.

MotoGP » Rossi blasts Marquez after MotoGP title defeat


The aspect which bothers me is what is going to happen in 2016. Is it going to be fair and sportsman-like racing, or will it be a game of legging-up the rider who is the biggest threat? What will the Rule-makers do about block passes and running wide, and impeding another rider's progress for the benefit of a third rider? Will personal vendettas bring carnage to the track? Will penalty points matter more or less than finishing points? With a new tyre mnfr, will new challenges and challengers eclipse Yamaha and Honda domination? And most importantly, will I regret renewing my BT subspription ?

MotoGP » CAS confirms Rossi to start last at Valencia


PorkPie:
Tetley: .One- Marquez is allowed to continue his dirty tricks without fear of penalty
What dirty tricks. .
The dirty tricks which Race Direction identified as deliberately and unfairly impeding Rossi, but for which they could not penalise Marquez as the Rule Book didn't anticipate such non-sporting behaviour
PorkPie: personally I tune in to watch racing
So do I- not to watch a get-in-the-way drone working to influence a championship he has no hope of winning in favour of another rider in another team. That's not racing- that's race fixing.
