MotoGP » Herve Poncharal (Tech 3) - Q&A


I really like HP's enthusiasm for racing. He is never afraid to take a risk and I can completely understand his frustration that no-one has the balls to risk the T2 moto2 ride. He proved his honour by giving BS the ride he promised even though he was underperforming in Moto2 If the same offer is there for Lowes or any other rider for that matter, they would be barking mad not to bite his hand off.

MotoGP » Bautista: ‘Nothing is clear’ for 2015


Insidejob: "His teammate was a spatter of seconds behind him on an open class Honda. I think it's clear who should be on that bike" It's true that Alvaro ended up in the gravel a number of times at the beginning of the season but the races in which both Scott and he finished Alvaro has been an average of 30 seconds ahead.
Alvaro is on a bike that is full fat not watered down....and has a good few yearss experience on the same bike in the same team... On comparable machinery Scott is beating both a former WC and an experienced Motogp rider, in a rookie season. If your gonna make those kind of statements, at the very least compare apples with apples

MotoGP » Andrea Dovizioso re-signs for Ducati


Dovi quietly goes about his business, under the radar and always committed. Just what Ducati owners look for. Im guessing this leaves CC going to LCR or Suzuki by the looks of it as he wont want another season being beaten by Dovi and Iannone as ots fairly obvious Ducati will build the bike around Dovi. Forces a move as staying and watching his stock devalue even greater would be GP suicide.

BSB » Brookes to quit BSB after 2014?


He was saying at Brands on Thursday that he didnt think the change in regs would make a huge difference to transition from BSB to WSB, as its tracks and the teams that need to be got used to. He also said he would like to keep road racing but thought it would be difficult in a World Series as the teams dont quite view it the same way as the BSB teams do. Moto2 would be fun to watch but not sure it would give the platform for progression as he is a bit old now and lots of fast kids in the series. I'll throw this out there, perhaps there will be a MIlwaukee Yamaha WSB team next year.....................

MotoGP » Dominique Aegerter - Q&A


Shrimpling:
Zambooni: @biaggi Is the Rabat in moto2 in 2015 official or just rumour? I know he has a contract with MVDS for next year but I guess that nothing that you can't buy yourself out if a MotoGP seat opens..
I think its just a strong rumour at the moment. A Spanish Journalist tweeted it last night. Apparently Alex Marquez will be his team mate next year too!
Its official, Tito will be the first Moto2 champion to defend his title, if he wins it of course.

MotoGP » Espargaro fastest - pain in neck for Marquez


Marquez crash was a bit odd. It stepped out and wasnt overly high speed but launched him up in the air and he came down on his head, neck sideways. Was lucky to get away with just bruises. Bradders is trying too hard as his jobs on the line and he knows no other team are interested. Dont rate his chances as he crashed again later in the session. Bradl looked solid, but whether that will translate into real pace is another question. AE is getting faster everyday, so will be there or there abouts. VR was just re-learning, but again whether that will translate into qualifying pace is anyone's guess. JL looked solid and focused so think he will be in the mix. DP hasnt even started yet, looked like he was trying something out rather than setting a time. Hope that helps and will update after FP2 this afternoon
