MotoGP » Kenny Roberts praises 'bulldog' Lorenzo


@SwissJudge “Firstly, Valentino is a great fan of motorcycles and so it has always been a pleasure for me to listen his opinions,” said Filippo Preziosi, Ducati Corse General Director. “Until the Valencia GP he will remain a competitor, one so great that he has always given a special value to our victories, but as soon as he rides the Ducati for the first time, we will work together on every single detail that will develop a bike capable of showing his huge talent. Working with Valentino is one of the most exciting things for every Engineer and it’s good to know we will have this great opportunity next season.” This statement shows the faith Ducati placed in Rossi

MotoGP » Kenny Roberts praises 'bulldog' Lorenzo


Engineers develop bikes. Riders ride them. Rossi never developed the Yamaha nor did J Burgess. Burgess was only the interface between the Yamaha factory engineers and Rossi. Stop giving false praise to Rossi and Burgess. They are not development engineers. I'm afraid that Ducati believed that Rossi and Burgess had special powers. They dont and they never had.

MotoGP » Pedrosa casts doubt on Assen return


Dani the most fragile guy in MotoGP? Taking too long to return from a simple collarbone injury? There are alot of misguided posts on here. Dani's recent injuries have been awful. Multiple injuries when he slid into the barriers on a wet Sachsenring... Impact speed around 80mph. Broken collar bone with complications when he crashed at over 140mph at Malaysia with wide open and stuck throttle. Question for you know-it-alls. How do you think your body would have coped with such impacts? How quick do you think you would have returned to work? And once finally back to health how would you react to a further serious injury caused by reckless riding of another rider?

F1 » Lewis Hamilton: Maybe it's because I'm black...


King Kenny I believe your are right. Lewis was being ironic. But Lewis's pace and style questions current driving pratices. If a faster driver (Lewis) comes up behind a slower car (Massa). What should the slower car do. Just stay behind forever or should he muscle his way through? All of want to see more overtaking and the faster driver / car win te race. Dont you?

MotoGP » Randy Mamola talks Simoncelli, Pedrosa clash


motogp is not a contact sport. If you overtake someone you must do so in safe manner and the rider being overtaken should also not cause the overtaking rider to crash. In other words an overtake should be mutually safe. Thats the rules. Rossi has been allowed to bash into others when overtaking. Sete, Jorge, Casey have *** **** ****** ** ***** and race direction has looked the other way. Simoncelli has just copied Rossi. Anyone care to disagree. EDIT by CRASH.NET: Defamatory remark removed.

MotoGP » Dani Pedrosa: I don’t deserve this


Just want to say something about Dani. A number of posts are suggesting that he is fragile or made of glass. I was at the Sachsenring in 2009 when he broke his leg. On a rain drenched track he went into the barrier at somewhere between 50 and 70 mph. When his throtle stuck open at Malaysia last year he crashed at the end of the long fast straight doing around 100 mph and broke his collar bone. I think any one of us would have suffered broken bones. I think Dani has bucket loads of courage, he certainly didn't deserve a cray Italian causing him more injury.

MotoGP » Simoncelli rejects blame for Pedrosa crash


I finding it hard to understand the many posts defending Sic. For far to long race directiona has chosen to ignore the fact that MotoGP is not a contact sport. Why? Because Rossi has been the chief culprit. I can think of three of Rossi overtakes when he should have been penalised. Sete - Jerez, Casey - Laguna and Jerez. The situation has now become so bad that riders now routinely commit to overtakes that are likely to cause an accident. The rules state that riders when overtaking must not cause an avoidable accident. To say its just a racing incident is wrong. That crash was avoidable. Remember crashes are dangerous and they rob us the fans of a proper race.
