MotoGP » MotoGP Catalunya - Race Results

A bit dull with not much happening in the race but a lot of crashes. 2 works Honda gone down again, at least Pedrosa made the podium, so happy for him after a difficult 3 months. Congrats to Lorenzo, 4 victories in a row don't come easy and in all of them he has beeen in complete control. Rossi again displaying fantastic race pace, there is absolutely nothing between them. Grid places are sabotaging Rossi chance to go with Lorenzo at the front but after today he'll be happy, at least Lorenzo didn't cruise to victory he made him work hard towards the end. If only he can do it from beginning. Next up Assen, typical Yamaha track if there was one. Rossi has to strike back.

MotoGP » Rossi: Yamaha, Honda, Ducati almost at same level

Well there isn't much between them over a single lap but over a race distance, Yamaha certainly are better. Ducati drop a wee bit towards the end while that front of Honda wants to fold after 10 laps. To be fair to Yamaha they deserve this success because they have been very patient in bringing along their full seamless and also built a bike that is extremely fuel efficient. For Rossi, he has to be on their level during qualifying to score 25 points because on Sunday his race pace will be up there. If he messes up qualifying again not only he will lose time early on but while charging through he also uses up extra tyre which means towards the end his pace drops a little. Catalunya 2014 was best race of the season imo and hope this one again is a cracker!

MotoGP » Marquez: We have a lot of work to do

PominOz: And I think this will again be his downfall. The thing that won him the Championship in his rookie year will be the very thing that will be his undoing this year - an unshakeable self-belief. This year's Honda is a dog compared to the last two years', yet everytime he throws a leg over it, he goes out with the same "do or die" attitude that won him his titles. It's highly commendable - the man is insanely talented, I don't think anyone is denying that. But this Honda wants to chew him up and spit him out, and I think his bravery is going to see him land a few more DNF's this year. I'm not saying he shouldn't ride his hardest - he's young, talented and incredibly driven. But this year, MM is better than his bike, and unless he is able to swallow that and settle for some 2nds, 3rds, 4ths, he's going to get hurt. I'm not a Honda fan but I'd hate to see MM badly injured.
So much truth! Fantastic post Sir.

MotoGP » ‘Over the limit’ Marquez talks Mugello misery

A testing period for Marquez as his title defence is falling apart but he'll overcome this, he is too good not to. He'll have a huge say in the championship one way or the other. @cossiegaz You wish but Honda turned him down and I doubt he's keen to help them either. Having said that, he's more likely to lose the front considering the amount of times he lost the front in his career after overriding the bike.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Vinales hard to beat in couple of years

Anyone who has been following MotoGP for last few years (not only MotoGP class but lower classes as well) will know how highly rated Vinales is. Whatever doubts there were of him adjusting to next class have been silenced after his performances in Moto2 last year and now in MotoGP this year. The grid is most competitive from front to back after a long time and he's consistently finishing inside top 10 and is 9th in standings. Marquez was always highlighted as a future premier class champion when he was racing in lower classes and same has been said about Vinales. In my opinion he'll become one, he's special.

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo's form is bad news for me

Yearby23: There's only one rider who managed to consistently catch Lorenzo mid-race and win the race and that was Pedrosa during the 2012 season. Lorenzo would dart away for 10 laps and Pedrosa would slowly catch him.
Pedrosa was able to do that because Honda gave him 2013 bike post Brno, which solved their chattering issues and gave him edge over Lorenzo. There have been very few instances where a rider has caught and passed Lorenzo after he's escaped at the front. Rossi has caught him thrice this season but in every instance he's opted for harder compound. Rossi qualifying record this season reads 8, 4, 8, 5, 7, 8. That's abysmal! To beat Lorenzo with same bike, same compound you have to be within touching distance at the first corner again meaning he has to improve his qualifying

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo's form is bad news for me

Damage limitation for him, when Marquez bullied the entire field early on with the two Ducati's and Pedrosa in the mix. I thought his run of podiums will come to an end, to his credit he pulled off a miraculous front save and finished on the podium. To beat Lorenzo, you have to rattle him early on. Don't let him get a full lap in front of you or it's over. I think they have to dedicate not just a session but a full possible day to work on a setup where he can extract one quick lap in qualifying. Here is hoping Rossi and his crew will do just that in post-Catalunya test.

MotoGP » Latest 2015 MotoGP Championship standings

Look at the state here, you would think Dorna would do all of us a favor if they hand over the championship to Lorenzo right now and save us from the remaining procession. It is far from finished, so many variables are in play in a single session let alone 12 races. Opinions can change so quickly, Marquez made a thunderbolt start off the line today and if that front doesn't fold on him you'd claim him as a genius and say he's still in the reckoning. Rossi has shown earlier he can win races, and the two won't race on the same compound for remainder of the races. Tire choices will play a part. You can rightly claim Lorenzo to be favorite right now given his form but don't start the drum roll for the celebrations just yet.
