WSBK » Leon Haslam signs for Red Devils Aprilia

Greavesit: I think you may be eating these words in a bit of humble pie this time next year!
That's the same line the Brits always come on here with, every time Haslam's ability is called in to question.
"Always" ? " Every Time " ? Please read the postings again, observe the comments from other Brits, realise your error, then apologise to the posters who you have unfairly criticised with your blanket condemnation..

MotoGP » Marquez: New Honda needs change of direction

Bendy: The 2015 Honda hasn't suited Marquez, so it's time Stoner was given his marching orders. Stoner isn't going to be useful in developing a bike for Marquez if he's riding style isn't the same. As time goes on, Stoner will become a much slower rider than Marquez and will be unable to reach the full limits of the bike.
I agree completely. I posted a few threads ago that the fisherman was an illogical choice as a test rider. It is said that he was the only rider who could tame the poor handling Ducati, so there's a real likelyhood that he could also ride around the 2015 Honda's faults instead of identifying and fixing them. I got "disagrees", as you probably will, but I simply don't rate CS when it comes to developing a bike .

MotoGP » Crutchlow 'fell at turn one, nearly landed at turn two'

Rowdy75: Must be something to do with living on the Isle of Man and that dodgy cat with the missing tail :)
I would NOT want to get on the wrong side of one of those "dodgy cat with the missing tail". Due to dwindling numbers and subsequent in-breeding they are known for being feisty, always ready to bite and scratch if you invade their space, and too aggressive to be considered a pet. No kidding, you have been warned.

MotoGP » Suzuki: We know what happened

Crash’s article says “Randy de Puniet retiring from Sunday's season-closing race with a gearbox problem”. Terada says “ We know what happened in the engine but unfortunately we don't have the time to fix it”. One of those statements must be incorrect. But which ? Or maybe they are both true, in which case they have a lot of work to do to go full race distance, bearing in mind they had reduced the power for mechanical longevity. Well at least they didn’t fall back onto the usual “electrical problem” excuse. As for the livery, having SUZUKI writ large all down the sides indicates no major title sponsor, so reliability and success better come quickly or they could fast run out of cash resources.

MotoGP » Melandri signs, 2015 MotoGP grid complete

exloko: my top five italian (i seeing racing) Biaggi, Capirossi, Rossi, Melandri, Cadalora, of course obligate include Agostini, for not to mention Luchinelli, Chili
I was lucky to meet Frankie Chili last month at the Stafford Classic Show. He is a charming man and was happy to spend time having a brief chat. My wife was over-awed- she thinks he's "gorgeous". As a rider Frankie was very popular in UK, so it was good to see him.

MotoGP » Melandri signs, 2015 MotoGP grid complete

Yearby23: Good to see Melandri back on the grid. Don't forget he was runner up in 2005.
OK, but 2005 was TEN years before the 2015 season, during which time his results have not brought him a Championship, despite being in a "lower" class of the sport. I'm not saying he is a useless rider, but he's not a great rider either.
Maybe so, but Rossi's doing well and he was champion 10 years ago wasn't he? Difference is Melandri is basically a test rider for Aprilia like you say, developing the bike for the younger generation.
Nice point, yes VR was Champion 10 years ago, but Melandri wasn't. Ever. Not even in WSBK. True, they are both Italians, but that's where the comparison ends. And I don't see a queue of Team Managers wanting Melandri's signature. We agree, he’s just in the Aprilia MotoGP team to help the young guns. But I don't think Marco sees it that way. Team Orders ?
