MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Marquez up front and feeling good


I see Jorge winning another one based on consistency. Second will be a battle between Dani & Vale. Dani will most likely place higher than both Cal & Marc, as will Vale simply based on experience & craft. Marc & Cal should be battling for third, with Cal coming through. Cal is not consistent & Marc is unproven over distance. I have a real fear Marc may cause a pile up in turn one off the start, maybe not if he's got pole. He might run off there trying to outbreak Cal later in the race.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Valentino Rossi lights up practice


@ UNREALIST, I've not said a word against Stoner. Only praised Vale for his accomplishments. Get your facts straight before you lump a group of people together when a rider you hate is admired. I had a friend years ago, 2007 to be exact, who loved playing devil's advocate. It's easy to jump on a bandwagon, but harder to stick with your rider through a tough period. I actually wish Casey will return one day. His race craft is dead level with Jorge I'd say. His speed could be said to be even greater. PI 2012 was superhuman! He chose to leave, and that is the smartest choice a professional racer at this level can make when their heart is no longer in it.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Valentino Rossi lights up practice


@ Facts, Titles on 125, 250 & 500 2-strokes=check. Titles on the 990 4-strokes with back-to-back titles on different makes=check. 800cc back-to-back after a 2-year hiatus=check. How many consecutive race starts? 230 +/- setting the record=check. Hmmmm. Seems his talent doesn't quite equal his ambition! The only thing exposed when Vale went to Ducati is that he couldn't ride that one bike. Jeeesh! Drag him out into the streets for some retribution.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Lorenzo, Yamaha top as Honda struggle


There's still more practice & qualifying to go, so besting Casey's record is still possible. Another thing to consider is the fact that there is one less engine available, so tuning things down a bit for longevity will cause a slight decrease in performance. Different tire specs & weather should be considered as well. This is the first year they've run MotoGP first on the second day of practice too, so the track will be rather green, or should I say brown from the sand/dust accumulated overnight. Different year, different conditions/circumstances=different expectations.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Lorenzo, Yamaha top as Honda struggle


I wonder how much sand & dust will settle on the track before the MotoGP boys set out on it in just over 9 hours time. @ least they had 2 other classes out there to clean it for them today(Thurs). Not sure if I'm excited or not about the new qualifying format. Though traffic shouldn't be as big an issue, coming in to make changes must be done quickly. Any mechanical/electrical issues could be more significant.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Dovi fifth, Hayden setting sights higher


Man, I hope Nicky gets his head straight & finds another avenue to show his skills. I, like many others, admire his team spirit & determination, but there's a time when you've flogged a dead horse for long enough. With the new rules coming in with the Honda Production Racer for sale and leased M1 engines in custom frames, I think it'd be the perfect time to try one of 'em out, or go to SBK. Shoot, imagine if he & Ben join forces for an all American Suzuki comeback effort? I know...I'm dreaming.
