MotoGP » Rossi: Mistake to leave Yamaha over No.1 status

I think that Rossi understands what racing really is. Nothing more than a circus. Entertainment for the masses. Yes, it is life and death. But if it ended tomorrow the world would hardly change aside from a very small group of people felling the economic backlash. That being said, it is Rossi's flaws that make him such an entertaining racer. Those poor qualifying efforts lead to him driving his way through the field and there are few things more entertaining than a rider attacking and passing. That is racing. Those who have followed him is whole career, have seen him purposely drop out of the lead to follow and attack later, instead of being attacked to control the race. JLo, Stoner, and to some extent MM pull the time trial routine that IMO is impressive, but nowhere near as entertaining.

MotoGP » Lack of fitness cost me in race, says Lorenzo

One thing people fail to understand it there are more factors at work than just doing what everyone else is doing. What if his setup was askew, making him work much harder? What if the tire choice was a mistake, making him work much harder? For all we know the ventilation in his helmet or leathers, isn't up to par. Just the helmet ventilation could have a serious effect, doesn't he wear some Nolan X brand?

MotoGP » Rossi 'quite worried' by wet pace at Sepang

Rossi"s Achilles heel has always been changing wet conditions. He takes a long time to come to terms with the changes.That being said, in a full wet race, lap after lap he gets better and better and then turns into a racing machine. Go back and watch some of his wet performances, some (but not all) were absolutely stunning. Wet races IMHO are more exciting, for the mere fact that the slightest mistake can change the entire race.

MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa regroup after double DNF

I am the first to say that the Honda is superior in many ways. But it takes a special talent to extract what MM has done. If MM was on a Yamaha, chances are that it would not have been the run away title that it was. As for the DP, MM comparison. There is none, MM is in another league most of the time. DP has the same kit and has been developing it to his riding style for a very long time. Put DP on a Yamaha all year and he would be fighting for 5th.

MotoGP » Hayden ‘gradually’ recovering wrist strength

The only real problem with Nicky is his wearing that wannabe Gangsta hat, making him look 40 IQ points dumber. Other than that he is a consistent, hard working rider that conveys a good image (even with the stupid hat). Yes, all the cards fell in is favor for his one WC. But he had to ride, and ride well to finish on the podium consistantly and not crash. IMO he is not a world beater on a MotoGP bike, but given a competitive bike, he still may turn a few heads.
