MotoGP » Lorenzo and Yamaha: One or two years?


It's a tough decision for JLo. Number 2 rider at Yamaha on a good bike but with a pay drop, or number 1 rider at Ducati on an unproven bike with better pay. That's assuming that there is a spare seat at Ducati, as Dovi and Cal haven't yet announced what they are doing next year. JLo doesn't need the money. He's already rich. But he has such a superior view of himself he may not be able to stomach the indignity of losing number one rider status. If he wants number one rider status he has to take a big gamble. "You have to ask yourself- are you feeling lucky, punk?" (Dirty Harry voice) From a race fan's point of view I'd rather not see the top four of the next two years being the same as the top four of the last two years so I'm hoping that JLo can regain some of his former self-confidence and take the plunge into the unknown. Nothing will change if things stay as they are.

MotoGP » Riders want changes after ‘dangerous’ pit start


TrueFan: Maybe, they should have a double grid on the track. If you change bikes before the start, you come out and do a second sighting lap, then take your position in original grid order, but on the grid behind the grid...
Unfortunately, the double-grid suggestion would penailise the riders who don't dash for the pitlane, because they would be held on the "proper" grid while the others entered pitlane, with pitlane speed limits, stopped and changed bikes, rode the rest of the pitlane at pitlane speed limits and then completed another "sighting" lap. During this time, the riders held on the "proper" grip would have their tyres losing heat, and their engines getting overheated. I agree with Oli - no changing bikes on sighting lap.

MotoGP » Pits to victory for Marquez in Germany


V4Poweeeer: I do believe we are witnessing a legend in the making and should savour every moment regardless who you support This boy could eclipse both Agostini and Rossi on pretty much any of the factory bikes if Honda ever let him go.
Honda learned a big lesson when they let Rossi go. They won't let the top rider in the series and the world slip from their grasp again. Honda had to eat humble pie when Rossi won on the Yam, and the Japanese don't like that. Just imagine what Rossi might have achieved and how many World Championships he would have won if Honda had recognised his value and kept him.

MotoGP » Adrian Newey: MotoGP guys 'superhuman'


mrfill: The idea of a Newey designed Kwack powered bike with proper aero however, is quite a prospect, although highly unlikely. \blockquote] Remember the last time when a top F1 boffin was hired to develop a MotoGP frame? Kenny Roberts hired (I've forgotten his name- damned alzheimers) to design a frame for the Petronas and in true F1 money-no-object style he chose to mill a complete frame out of billet. And it was an expensive disaster. I'm not saying Newey couldn't do better, but MotoGP's Laws of Physics and Aerodynamics apply completely differently to F1's Laws of Physics and Aerodynamics I also believe that the top MotoGP riders exceed the Laws of Physics at each and every corner. Or maybe the Laws are different for aliens?
