MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It was not enough

annan46 your name gives you away as a rossi fanboy so obviously your are not objective. I've seen Kenny Roberts (sr) race live at the circuit so run along to Google to figure out how long I've been watching racing. I Don't think JL is panicked at all, he has 4 wins on the trot, I think you miss the point that Rossi places more emphasis on race pace than qualifying. Vale was 1.5 sec behind on the first lap and 0.8 behind at the end, he made up 0.7 sec over 26 laps, the secret is in hammering out consistent fast laps, every tenth and every split counts. Rossi knows that. Consistent fast laps (race pace) is also what will get him past slower riders on the earlier laps, not the ability do do one amazing super fast (qualifying) lap.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It was not enough

Many assuming that if Rossi starts better he is going to beat JL on pace. Jorge is a very calculating racer and administers a lead through his pit board. VR admits it will be very difficult to beat his rival even once there. This is the reason Vale concentrates so much on race pace during FP, he realises its the only way to beat him. Getting a better grid position is actually less than half of the deal, speed over race distance is what he needs to beat Lorenzo.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: ‘Poor start to the season’

Midway through last season Cal started making noises about being unhappy with the bike and it then leaked out that he was considering ending his Ducati contract a year early. I can't help but thinking that Ducati opened the door wide for him to walk out and Iannone to walk in fully knowing that the GP15 up their sleeve was going to be something special. Chance for an all Italian team with a winning bike, why not? I like Cal's attitude, not regretting his change of machinery (outwardly at least) but getting his head down and making the best of what he's got. Best of luck Cal.

MotoGP » Moto3: Estrella protest against Miller, Kent rejected

Six of one and half a dozen of the other. Miller was borderline but if each pass is taken individually very hard for the stewards to penalise. It did look like he was looking for AM and drifted wide off his line intentionally on at least two occasions. Hard and not completely fair in my opinion. Having said that Marquez was naive in the extreme falling into the same trap time and again. A smarter racer (Vazquez) would not have fallen for it but instead sprung the trap and taken the inside line. Being a champion is not only about speed but also racecraft and guile...AM has been found lacking here whereas Miller has put everything he has on the table.

MotoGP » Dani Pedrosa re-signs for Honda

Scott Redding, Sam Lowes, Jack Miller (will forget the Cameron Beaubier suggestion as a joke) none of them are anywhere near ready for a Repsol Honda, I put these comments down to Anglo wishful thinking. Will concede that SR is the closest of the bunch but he has a lot to prove. I would not expect that HRC will even consider anyone with a least a title in lower classes and a couple of wins in MotoGP to throw a leg over one of their top bikes. The time will come for one of the up 'n' comers to get a ride on a factory Yam or Honda but that time is not yet here. Unfortunate for JL to be having mediocre results at contract time, he will accept a pay cut and stay put.

MotoGP » Pedrosa hails 'amazing, special' race

Aside from the riders on the podium we are all winners today after being gifted such a great race. Dani proving EXACTLY why Honda want to keep him. I think it will be very difficult for him to leave Honda after having been there his whole career even if he has to take a pay cut. There will surely be a role at HRC for him if he retires from racing with them. Dani is a great development rider and fits the corporate image.
