MotoGP » POLL: Should MotoGP races have pit stops?


There is a really good reason to vote yes. The BS tires are compromised so they will last the whole race, hence the slow warm up and vague feel. So now put a mandatory pit stop in, now the tires can be softer, not only the compound but the carcass. Ducati's problems almost evaporate overnight. Also let the teams decide when to pit and most of the danger goes away because they will be spread out. these tracks were designed for pit stops. Add in the excitement factor and MotoGP becomes far more interesting. I would vote for a tire change instead of a bike change, that would keep the teams on their toes.

MotoGP » Rossi: We tried everything for home podium


Wasn't Rossi's last breakthrough a front fork thing? Also JL's change wouldn't be known till after the race. They are trying setups and find out if they work later. So of course he wouldn't have the change. Something is amiss, normally Rossi is strongest as the end of the race, not the first part. The setup is still elusive. But that is racing. That being said, they need to find the right balance,

MotoGP » Latest Stoner test wiped out by bad weather


It is amazing how these threads degenerate. Anyone who thinks there isn't huge value in having a tester that can ride a bike to the absolute limit, has another think coming. These races are won with 1/10s of a second in a lap. Being able to know how the bike deals with it, is worth it's weight in gold. The bad part is if the Hondas get any better the racing it going to get boring. Yamaha needs Stoner as a tester more than Honda does.

MotoGP » Early Pedrosa exertions 'prevented final challenge'


Of course there are team orders and they are quote "Don't take your team mate out!!" But that is the end of them. The Honda is just the opposite of the Yamaha, when the tires go away they are much harder to ride. I was hoping for DP to continue his charge to the front. But it is one thing pulling a couple seconds out of the guys in front with a clear track, but it is something else to pass these guys, especially JL and MM. If anyone had ridden a race bike with cooked tires, they know it is like riding on grease. It is almost impossible to control the wheel spin, It leave you no feeling. Discretion is the better part of valor. And DP chose to not toss it.. He is close to 1 DNF and a mistake from the WC.
