MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Traffic jam costs Rossi in qualifying


I hope they adjust the format. With only 15 minutes, they all rush out to get in a fast warm up lap, followed by a couple hot laps. Then they all pit at pretty much the same time to do it all over one more time if their lucky. The limited time creates more traffic if anything, as there's only one way to maximize track time. Poor Hector didn't even get on track due to an electrical glitch or something. I'm not a fan of his, but it still stinks. They should stop all riders not in the top 10 after 45 minutes & give the top guys the track.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Lorenzo second by 0.001s, chassis undecided


Jorge wins another race in Qatar based on consistency. Second could be a battle between Dani & Vale. Marc & Cal should be battling for fourth, with Cal coming through. Cal is not smooth but is experienced in preserving the tires for an entire GP & Marc is unproven in too many areas. 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 outbreaking someone in the race.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Honda extends exclusive Moto2 engine deal


What more can you say? It's one way to bring out the fresh talent. That and a control ECU, which is easy when all the engines are the same. Still, it would be cool if another in-line four was available as an option. Hint, hint there Yami, Kawi & Suzi. A control ECU could still work if the basic cylinder configuration stays the same.

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.
