MotoGP » Rossi: Tracks that are difficult for me

MotoMarc: I think that Rossi is just being honest that he doesn't know where he'll be at the end of this race. Plus with his recent races there it hasn't been great. So while he's more comfortable and confident this year the track is the variable. I'm sure however he'll try his best and would't be surprised if he does well. But it's smart to down play when you don't really have a good idea on how it well end up this weekend. That all said, he really needs to pick-it up a bit and reduce that gap to Marquez.
Well said. But that being said, Rossi always struggles (putting it lightly) at mixed weather races. Full on wet, he is a racing machine. But mixed he just doesn't seem to adapt.

MotoGP » Red Bull increases Honda backing

RSMick: Show us the evidence then Mr G
That would take the form of the last 2 riders that jumped on the Repsol Honda and ran away with the championship. Pretty good evidence.
if the rider was any random monkey from the population, then it might be considered evidenced, depending if the control variables are adequately modelled. If the two riders are some of the most talented and successful riders in MotoGP's recent history, then, NO it is not evidenced. EDIT by CRASH.NET: Poster attack removed.
One of the riders was 4th place in the championship on a bike that many here touted as a championship winning bike. And then switches bikes and heads straight to the top. Hmmmmm So the bike had nothing to do with it?

MotoGP » Red Bull increases Honda backing

Talentfan couldn't be more right. Honda/Repsol have such deep pockets that even a big company like Yamaha just can't keep up. Just to make the most of the electronics takes an army of engineers that Honda can throw at any obstacle and hardly make a dent in the wallet. Not to mention the chassis they throw at the riders to try each and every time they complain that there is a problem. Now lets add Red Bull to the mix and everyone, I mean everyone else is going to be sucking wind. Case in point: A $600,000.00 gearbox.

MotoGP » ‘Scared’ Lorenzo haunted by Assen injury

I think there are many factors here. They showed his crash from last year and it was a dilly. But his confidence is a bit ragged at the moment because the tires don't accommodate his riding style. And he likes to jump out and run away, being back in the pack in tricky conditions isn't the best situation. And why get hurt when the championship is all but gone? All that being said I think he is making a shrewd move here, playing up a bad result to fear. Every rider on the grid now thinks the same as the Crash posters. They don't worry about him as much. But just wait boys and girls, in more favorable conditions he is still quite the power to be reckoned with.
