MotoGP » Suzuki finding a good direction, says De Puniet

Bluey: Randy is a very fast rider with loads of experience. he is an ecxellent choice.
Agreed. Randy has plenty of speed. True he did crash a bit too much but this is testing/development, not racing. Suzuki has made a good choice in De Puniet. But I think that for the real thing it would be good to see someone like Dany doing the business. Hope it happens.

MotoGP » Nakamoto: Racing is in Honda’s DNA

Running a business operation is in Honda´s DNA. Ironic that the term DNA is used. Because that is exactly what makes a successful CEO, executive and pilot (jets, F1, motogp etc). These types live for competition. They tend to be very outspoken and provocative, usually away from the cameras but not always. An extreme example is Stoner. In other words being a psychopath. But what they can do in sports and business is nothing short of fantastic to watch (with the exception of the bankers). But what makes the best of the best of them unique is that the MM´s, VR´s and JLs tend not to blame everybody else all the time (does 1 name spring to mind?).

MotoGP » Marquez: MotoGP titles matter more than records

Realist: He's right. Hayden is the perfect example. Very few race wins to his credit at all, but that lucky WC always grants him the title "World Champion". Then you look at Dani Pedrosa. So many wins to his credit, but no people slate him. Marquez will be one of the greats. That's for sure.
Dani is the man you would want to ride with two up. But I would not hitch a ride with MM or VR. MM and VR were still a bit 125cc in their thinking when they started 500cc/motogp. MM is still like that but not as much as last year. Dany also had a weight to power advantage on 125cc and 250cc. A great rider but the weight to power advantage is not as great in motogp. Although some may argue that weight to power matters a little more now-a-days with all the electronics. In the past Rossi could use his long frame (body) to good effect but with the suspension changing from one moment to the next using GPS Rossi´s advantage has dwindled. But his weight disadvantage is still there and he is aging at 35. That´s why in my book Rossi is still one of the best. But I am not sure that he can loose more weight. He really is a stick man. And that brings me to Rossi´s biggest weakness, his strength. If the bike NEEDS to be wrestled around the track Rossi will not be capable of doing it.

MotoGP » ‘Power cut’ strategy costs Lorenzo

beastinblack: Why dont you just admit that you need to modify your style? Your inflexibility is leaving you standing still. Reliance on edge grip alone is not enough mate.
Imagine trying to ride the same motorcycle for 7 seasons and then during the 8th season trying to change your riding style...easier said than done. And before you say anything about Rossi adapting...he left Yamaha for Ducati and couldn't adapt and then on returning to Yamaha he has adapted well...mainly because anything is positive compared to his spell at Ducati. I am a fan of both Jorge and Rossi but you bash Jorge on every single thread on here. I'd like to see you be given the best machinery in the world and see what you can do.
Given the state of Ducati now your comment hardly makes sense. As to your last point, to perform at this level a rider has to have a brain that is wired a certain way (i.e. natural talent). All the dedication in the world wont get you there without natural talent so your last point is also meaningless. Rossi and MM have enjoyed their success because they are very good at adapting. Rossi was the best at dealing with the old bikes before electronics came in in a big way. Of course there are limits to what a rider can adapt to. As for JL I am sure he will come back. But I don´t believe JL is better than MM. MM can adapt faster than anyone I have ever seen, including the fisherman.

MotoGP » We're closer to beating Marquez, says Rossi

Poddy: @Guna4699 REALLY, you really believe that Rossi could out ride MM, remember, young Mark is NOT on a Ducati and having to compensate for everything. Unlike Stoner in 08, MM has the bike to play cat and mouse with, dont believe that is possible, revisit 2011 where Stoner had the bike and did a Lorenzo on Lorenzo and had the Stoner of 08 been on a Honda like young Mark is history would be like it was last year when MM took Rossi on the corkscrew. Stoner was the rider to always bring the fight to Rossi and I wish Rossi could take MM but I doubt it very much. MM is way better than both Rossi and Stoner and thats a fact we will have to accept
Rossi was the rider who brought the fight to Stoner. The rest, i.e. the lack of pace from the Ducati camp is proven fact.
