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 » ‘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.

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

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".
