MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It was not enough


Vegas Ryder, thanks at least I've got someones attention who can follow a line of thinking and has something to add. Rossi by his own admission is not the best at the quali format but accepts his weakness in this aspect. He works on set-up and improving his pace. He knows its the way to beat Lorenzo. At most he was 2.0 seconds down on JL and used hi fast-no-mistakes-pace to bridge the gap. Was it enough? No. Whats the solution? An extra tenth of a second over 26 laps... simple mathematics. Once there, and only then the dogfight can happen. It's what we all want to see. Will JL put up a fight? You can bet your bottom dollar he will. Roll on Assen and lets see them duke it out !

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.

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.
