MotoGP » MotoGP announces control ECU from 2016

I think many people are losing sight of the fact that these latest set of rules are the best compromise for now and a stop gap to keep everybody... Factory, Ducati and Open class happy until the standard ECU and software come into effect. Its a good step that this has now been brought forward to 2016 and I am hoping that by the end of this season this can be amended to 2015. Everybody wants one set of rules to cover all entries, so what is everybody whinging about? Its coming, be patient. As most predict, this years racing is going to be a lot more competitive than previous seasons, yes the usual suspects will be up front but the second tier will be mixing it up much more and we can expect to see many new faces on the podium than previously. I'm really looking forward to forget politics and enjoy the racing.

MotoGP » Pedrosa unsure of Ducati Factory 2 potential

I think Dani would love to end his career with HRC, he has been a loyal servant throughout his career and if he does make it that far will no doubt be given a job for life with Honda. There is of course the chance that he could be replaced at Repsol Honda at some point. If that happens I would love to see him on a factory Yamaha. I think that the Yamaha will suit him after a period of adaptation. In his earlier career he was always a super smooth corner speed artist and adapted easily to the sit-up-point-and-shoot Honda. Nothing leads me to believe he couldn't win races on the Yam.

MotoGP » Hayden: Open, Factory, Factory 2… it’s confusing

I think Dorna has the right idea in the long run but has painted itself into a corner by massaging Nakamoto/Honda/HRC's ego too much and is now making it up as they go along. Go to compulsory spec ECU and software for 2015 and go back to one set of tech regulations. Lets see if HRC really pull out. More likely Nakamoto will be given a promotion within Honda away from HRC, allowing him to save face (ish). Fuel and engine allocation should be balanced at a level where smaller or incoming factories can compete without spending billions but tough enough for factories like Suzuki et al to have a technical challenge.

MotoGP » MotoGP Factory 2 triggered by Ducati 'advantage'

Factory 2 is of course a stop gap measure to keep the status quo between the main players here. Take note that Yamaha is completely silent as they have come up with a decent wait and see strategy by having a foot in both 'classes'. Rossi and Lorenzo will make their feelings clear once racing is under way. Rossi already joked that he wanted an Open Yam. I would love to see Yamaha jumping ship to Open in 2015... knock on effect, Dorna calls Honda's bluff, Nakamoto gets a face saving promotion out of HRC and upstairs at Honda. HRC quietly follows suit and develop their beloved software somewhere else, and hey presto...! One MotoGP class with level playing field

MotoGP » Moto2: Scott Redding out with fractured wrist

JS99, spot on mate, Pol has chased down Scott's massive early lead relentlessly. Rabat meanwhile has been quietly getting his act together and is now a real threat if he can keep up his current form. Whoever wins the title will have thoroughly deserved it, all 3 have fought like demons. Sad to see Redding lose it this way ( I don't think he would have won it even without this crash) but that's racing. I have been rooting for Tito and am hoping he can overhaul Pol now and take the crown. Shades of Jacque and Nakano on the Chesterfield Yamaha 250's.

MotoGP » Early Pedrosa exertions 'prevented final challenge'

There have never been team orders anywhere near 7 races before the end of the championship. I have to agree with Hoppy's take so far. I think DP is so fed up with injuries and losing title fights by missing races that he has now become more cautious and clinical. He will only put in a pass when he is certain it will stick without risk of a crash. Unfortunately for us this translates to less passing moves by Dani and fewer opportunities for him to win races now MM is around. I don't think we will se a run from DP like last year and although I hope he will still win races it's probably too late now for him to have a serious shout at the championship. I hate to read comments like no balls etc., that is just a lack of respect.

MotoGP » Marquez smashes pole record during Lorenzo duel

Sure Marquez is an amazing talent and in the best position to take the crown but I don't get it that many posters are already calling game over. He is 26 points ahead, that is practically wiped out with one DNF and I'm not even talking injury just a simple front end slip on a slow corner. It happens to everybody and I don't see how Marquez would be immune to it. It's not over till its over. Hoping for a great race tomorrow!
