MotoGP » Dovizioso: Rest of season likely to be a struggle


I like Dovi but he needs to take a reality check here as he is in no position to start whining. He knew full well what this project was when he came into it, Ducati were absolutely clear that they did not expect a huge leap forward in 2013. I would love to see it turned round but he can't take the money and now start to question things. He needs to take a public face lesson from Mr Hayden.

MotoGP » 2014 Honda could make MotoGP debut this season


@AussieNSW I don't disagree. I work in manufacturing and am also well aware of costings etc. That said the cost of development, even modifying frame tooling all the way down the line etc etc will still be more than say test sessions, which Dorna restrict because of cost. My point is not that Honda can afford it, as they patently can but can say the IODA team? I believe that was the logic behind Dorna's controls. If it were down to me I would let teams develop and test as much as they want/can.

MotoGP » 2014 Honda could make MotoGP debut this season


I am surprised that Dorna have not stopped this sort of thing happening, given their recent history of screwing things down tighter than a sharks backside at fifty fathoms. Given all the lame attempts at cost cutting to bring teams closer together surely the ability to introduce completely new bikes mid way through a season is something prohibitive to many of the smaller outfits. Don't me wrong I am not in favour of restrictions, in fact the exact opposite but I am surprised it can happen.

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


My my my, it does make you wonder why any of the factories employ experienced people when they are so obviously getting it wrong, as indicated by the experts who post their guru like knowledge on Crash. Randy de Puniet is obviously not the man. Why oh why Suzuki did you not ask the experts here who to pick, I am sure they would have sorted everything out for you, as well as the team management and your past rider rosta. Silly boys in Japan.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi's salary still highest in MotoGP


@69transam - you have totally missed the point. Schumacher was a multiple world champion and an incredibly talented driver. The difference between him and Rossi is, by comparison, he had the charisma of a fish and entered a sport in the spotlight. Be a Rossi fan or not it makes no odds but anyone who denies that he has been THE biggest single draw and raiser of the sport in the last twenty years is simply deluding themselves.

MotoGP » Hayden, Dovizioso test Ducati 'lab' bike


@coffee- Domenicali has been an integral part of the rise of Ducati over the past ten years and if you knew anything about the brand you would know they truly have turned things around in a massive way. The statement about the time coming to ditch Gobmeier's plan is just plain nuts. They are three races into the season are ahead of where they said they would be. To totally revolutionise and start from scratch would take them completely out of the game and then come back in a worse place. Think man, think.
