MotoGP » Wayne Gardner plays down safety concerns

I don't understand why people slag Gardner off. I never like the guy either, but I have to agree with him. Island of Man TT is, by any modern safety standards, definitely not safe. There's simply not enough space to make for adequate run offs. You crash and you hit a wall fence. Modern motorsports and its safety precautions have become an art in themselves. It's one thing to get your adrenaline pumping, and it's completely another thing to get suicidal.

MotoGP » Lorenzo has surgery, will miss Malaysia

With all due respect, Jorge's injury is not as severe as some of the MotoGP riders had sustained. Rainey's, Schwantz's and Doohan's are career ending injuries. I guess he will recover in due time and won't lose any of his ability to ride the 1000 beast. At least, that's what I hope. Otherwise, I might just skip 2012 WC, even if Rossi and his Ducati is up to speed by then.

MotoGP » Rossi: Short-term 'inconclusive', long-term 'hope'

Hire Stoner, fire Rossi?! Ducati management should listen to that (so they can laugh their @$$ off). 1. Fact says, Stoner is the only rider who could ride the CF Ducati. 2. Fact says, his performance was declining every year. Combine those two facts and you get an ever declining team (Part of it because Ducati doesn't listen to Stoner). Maybe it's Rossi-Burgess they need, people with proven track record that they cannot say no to. That's the only way Ducati can get competitive again, even if it takes this season away.

MotoGP » Rossi: Short-term 'inconclusive', long-term 'hope'

Here is what had happened: 1. Ducati was convinced that CF is revolutionary and the way to go. If CF succeed, Ducati would be famous. 2. Stoner (after winning his 1st WC) started to ride around the CF handling problem (maybe after his request for revisions had been rejected). And still won races. 3. Rather than looking at Stoner's declining performance, they're busy polishing the winningest 800 trophy, which is rather misleading with 10 of them won with non CF bike. 4. Rossi and Burgess, with very little knowledge about CF jumped in with a false confidence that they can simply adjust the CF into a winning bike, thus leaving the CF/engine-as-stressed-member concept alone. The testing time limitation rule and Rossi's recovery didn't help. 5. Realizing that they couldn't do anything about the CF, they started looking into the more conventional frame concept. Ducati didn't listen to Stoner, but they might to Rossi and Burgess, after all, if Ducati doesn't listen to them, Ducati will
