MotoGP » Valentino Rossi appeals Sepang penalty

MM committed the #1 cardinal sin in racing....He tried to interfere with a title contender, or at the very least made it look like he was. And anyone who has ever raced amateur or pro knows you never ever do that. Maybe it was target fixation. Rossi on the other hand messed up and lost the mind game MM was playing. He shouldn't have done what he did, but it is pretty obvious that he didn't try to knock MM off the bike. And what he did was far less than the Kamikaze moves MM has done and not gotten punished. But all that being said pro racing is a business, albeit the entertainment business. And what happened was actually good for MotoGP, look at all the interest it has stirred up. But fair is fair, and just because he is the biggest name in MotoGP doesn't mean he deserves the biggest punishment.

MotoGP » Agostini tips Rossi as excitement, pressure rises

Rossi has the race speed, especially when things aren't perfect. What he doesn't have is the qualifying speed and the ability to put together a fast lap right out of the box. He is the consummate follower, watching, waiting, and picking out weaknesses, then when the time is right, overtaking. He is and historically never been a risk taker. If he can't win he will save his engine, slow down just enough to keep the points and use those fresher engines later. But in the rain, he pulled 4 seconds out of MM and JL in 2 laps. And all while bringing people to their feet and cheering.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I completely lost vision

Let's face it HJC is not a premium brand. Huge sellers because they are decent quality and very inexpensive. But It probably is a fair bet that the helmet Lorenzo gets is the best they can build, but alas it is also a fair bet that it is based off their retail offering. That being said, riding around in the rain with 3-5 people in front of you, one would only suppose that one will get more mist thrown at them. Add to that the questionable engineering of the helmet, and you get .... (wait for it).... A fogged up visor. Also judging how much fog is on a visor when the rider is coming in is....well. Go out in the rain and take note of how much fog you get at freeway speed, then slow down and take note. I am no Lorenzo fan, but it seems like an honest assessment of one of the many things that went wrong.
