MotoGP » Buckmaster: Make all MotoGP bikes CRTs


I have a lot of time for Simon Buckmaster but I disagree totally on this point. I am against the whole CRT thing inside Moto GP because, well it is no longer Moto GP. It should still be an all prototype only class, end of story. This does not make GP racing cheaper it just destroys it by diluting it, so it is neither one nor the other. I am not saying I have the answers and something needed to be done to fill the grids up but destroying the blue ribbon class by adding in a second tier was not the way. To do what Simon suggests would be killing of the Moto GP championship and making a new one.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: It's down to Yamaha


It seems like Jorge has matured as a man these last couple of years. I used to think he was an irritating, arrogant little so and so. His reaction and humility at the time of Marco's death was very admirable and it takes a true gentleman of some honour and decency to have said what he did and make the effort to go to the funeral. At that time I raised my respect level for Jorge the man and now here he is talking realistically, respectfully and with some humility also. It is great to see and whilst I have always had the utmost respect for him as a rider, that is now complete as a man and I am very pleased about it. As for the comment that he knows that he may never get his title back - what a load of hogwash. All of these top riders go in believing that they can and are capable of, winning that title and it would be a naive fool who thinks otherwise.

MotoGP » What's the story? Rossi and Ducati (2)


Both of these articles from viewers are re-packaging well known information but that is fair enough, there is nothing new to comment on in the close season at this time plus it gives some new blood a chance to write. Not a bad job by either of them. The one thing I do not agree with however is why it would be a climb down if Rossi was to go back to Honda. He left the team, they did not kick him out and I don't believe he left stating that there was a problem with Honda. He was a a young guy, with a precocious talent in the media spotlight and he was looking for a challenge. There was none greater at that time than to take on the poorly performing Yamaha. If he did go back to Honda then I am sure it would just be another challenge. I hope he and the team can sort the Ducati out as I personally would prefer to see him take titles on three different brands. If he does move on then also great as no matter what us armchair experts may think there is none of us qualified to do up the guys b

MotoGP » 'Hard but safe' for Edwards, 'synchronised crashing' for Crutchlow


Interestingly enough Abraham also crashed but picked up his damaged bike and brought it home for points. That kid deserves the rookie of the year title after all the crap he took before the season started and the sheer determination he has shown all year. It is pretty obvious that Herve is none to impressed with Crutchlow as this is not the first time he has said such things publically. Colin Edwards - a sheer class act, no more needs to be said.
