MotoGP » de Puniet: Suzuki has 'really good potential'


I think it'd be cool if the big Japanese 4, along with BMW, Aprilia and KTM would all be involved in the series with (1) single-rider Factory team, as well as (2) two-rider satellite teams, making 35 potential grid spots. Heck, even just (1) two-rider satellite team per manufacturer, plus the factory team, would fill 21 grid spots with prototypes. For Suzi to wait until 2015 is a bit ridiculous! Randy, as good as he is, is no title contender, and the bike should not be judged until pushed to THE EDGE by a podium potential rider. Someone like Cal, Vale or Dovi could make up the difference and lap near or under the GP13s. Vale should go for it!! It makes sense at this point in his career.

MotoGP » Catalunya MotoGP: Rossi ‘Barcelona very important after recent results’


Vale, along with Edwards, are old school through and through. Which is prob something to do with the qualifying issue. Being mid-pack through the first 1/2 lap is gambling quite a bit too. I liked the old qual format myself. Burgess is very involved in trying to solve it somehow, but he's no spring chicken and must be close to being ready for retirement. I do wish Vale a good handful of podiums this season at the very least.

MotoGP » Mugello: Podium target at least for Rossi


The M1 being a little down on power doesn't help. Dani continuing on with his form from last season's end doesn't help. Marc DEFINITELY doesn't help with his being a prodigy. Plus, Jorge is the team's #1, but that probably doesn't negatively affect Vale's machinery. I'm not ignorant, with wins looking hard to come by, but maybe 9 isn't such a bad number. Been a fan for the last 7 and I'll be watching as long as he willing to provide exciting battles, wherever they're happening.

MotoGP » Mugello: Podium target at least for Rossi


It's tiresome having to read though a lot of the negative comments towards the very person who ushered in the modern 4-stroke era of GP. When I first heard of him, he was this guy my buddy hated, simply because he was winning all the time. I kinda wanted his seemingly endless streak to whither myself early on, but then I saw and felt the effect he has on the crowd the way he battles. The way he seemed to enjoy riding in close quarters, pressuring from 2nd until the last lap/corner to make the move. I truly believe he's still as capable of pulling podiums, but he's been on a roller coaster ride for the past few years and is only becoming older/wiser, and that's something that will happen to us all.

MotoGP » Jerez MotoGP test times - Monday (Final)


On equal machinery, I believe Vale is still a notch above riders like Dovi, Cal, Bradl & Bautista, who've all seemingly peaked already. However, his broken leg in '10, followed by the rough time he had at Ducati have him feeling very human. I just hope he can make the podium on a regular basis and stay in the top four in points through his contract term. He doesn't have to win to be exciting to watch! Qatar proved that.
