MotoGP » PICS: Casey Stoner back on MotoGP machinery


What he didn't seem to understand is that racing is entertainment, nothing more. As are all sports. And when you participate in the world arena the spotlight will eventually turn on you if you are good, and in his case, fantastic. He made a choice to to participate, going in with eyes wide open and just couldn't stomach it. The government didn't force him to do it, he wasn't paying a price for a crime committed, he did it because he chose to. Then forgetting that the fans are what makes racing possible, he complained until he convinced himself that he couldn't take it anymore. Which you have to admire to an extent. Although it is a bit easier when you benefit from the support the fans gave you with multiple millions in the bank.

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.
