MotoGP » Crutchlow: Marquez must be a freak!


Cal's poor year on the Ducati has messed with his head, just like it did with Rossi. Rossi also took a year to get out of Ducati mode, so Cal is performing more-or-less as expected. No-one would expect Cal to be top 5 yet. Cal just needs to re-set his feelings and responses to be in tune with his new Honda. We should also remember that Cal's Honda is probably the 2015 spec which MM93 rejected. 10th on the timesheets on a new bike from a different manufacturer is nothing to be ashamed of, so I don't think he's making excuses. Cal may not be the sharpest tool in the box, but he says what he thinks and is capable of improving significantly from his current position. He just needs some riding miles to get dialled-in to the bike

MotoGP » Rossi: First impressions so positive


Polyccio: Honda will have a new game-changing bit of kit on their bikes by the time Yamaha have their seamless downshifting box ready.
Please share your inside information with the rest of us. Please tell us what this "new, game-changing bit of kit" is and when it will be introduced. I'm sure the other Team Managers and Engineers would be happy to send you a few quid for the info that you know but they don't.

MotoGP » Rossi: First impressions so positive


Looking at the comments from VR46, MM93, and Jlo99, we can deduce that MM93 needed a fresh tyre to beat VR46's time, while VR46 had observed that last season MM93's strength was on worn tyres in the last laps of the race. That indicates that one of MM93's major advantages has waned. MM93 also contradicts himself when says he is similar to CS, but eschews the bike CS has been involved in developing and reverts to a hybrid bike. With MM93 not being happy with the 2015 Honda and reverting to a hybrid, Pedrosa is continuing with the 2015 bike. Thus it seems as if Dani has taken on the supporting role of developing the 2015 bike. Meanwhile, VR46 and JLo99 are fast happy with their bikes straight out of the box, with gearbox improvements imminent. It is early days, but the Yam’s prospects are looking decidedly good.

MotoGP » Marquez chooses ‘compromise’ Honda


Painless: “And Stoner's lap time at the test? “I don't know... [Laughs]” So you have Stoner's data but you don't have his lap time. . [Laughs]
You're dead right to laugh. Honda have not released Stoner's lap times, so there is obviously an embargo on revealing them. MM93 would be foolish to go against Honda's wishes as he has nothing to gain from it.

WSBK » ‘Enthusiasm returning’ for ex-champ Biaggi


JimmyTheRealOne:
Tetley: And Torres is not indispensable. It wouldn't be a big problem to move him aside.
You can't move him aside if he has already signed a contract.
It's not an impossibility. It has happened before. More often than you realise. Torres' contract won't be a huge sum so Aprillia could easily either buy out of their contract or pay him off or offer him other "opportunities". Compared with Max's pay, a cash settlement for Torres would be a fairly insignificant sum. But for now it is all conjecture about what Max wants to do and if Red Devils could meet Max's pay demands.

WSBK » Haslam: Feeling with Aprilia increasing lap by lap


Joeski
Tetley Biaggi is testing for Red Devils and there is talk of him returning to ride, in which case the team's focus will turn to the Italian. Also, IIRC, Leon and Max have history and don't get on too well.
For testing, Aprilia will take Max's input very seriously regarding development, Leon is new to the Aprilia but Leon is already noticeably fast I do not think any conflict will be an issue between Leon and Biaggi Leon has the ride, Biaggi is gap filling for his own excitement and to assist with Aprilia's development that's it
Quote from earlier Crash article “Returning to action as rumours gather that he may make a surprise return to WSB competition with a selection of wild-card rides this year, beginning with the Phillip Island opener.” Depending on lap times, how Max feels, and what cash is offered, I wouldn’t rule out his full-time return. And that would be bad for Leon.
