MotoGP » Rossi impressed with brief GP11.1 debut

He looked much smoother exiting corners, and the rear end did not look to be wobbling and stepping out then coming back then stepping out then coming back as violently as it had been all over the place earlier this season with the GP11. Rossi has always been very very smooth rider, and stoner the opposite, this is why stoner could ride the ducati so much better than valentino. violent, thrashing, tail sliding, front end pushing, dirt track riding! Rossi is the opposite, even with the name the doctor, it tells of smooth precision to carefully and precisely dismantle his opponents. So now rossi may be beginning to get a bike with a character that allows him to ride his smooth style. I am big fans of them both and only hope that they can begin to battle it out this year, even if the lead stoner gets by that time gives him the championship with 5 races to go. I just look forward to good racing, without riders falling off, without broken collar bones, and without ride through penalt

MotoGP » Dutch MotoGP, Assen - Thursday practice (1)

@Firefly abraham riding that headshaking ducati out of the corners reminded me a lot of stoner in 2007 and 2008!! I wasn't the only one to catch that good eye. rossi looked much more confident on corner entry, and in him and marco's first session out together, they were riding very closely together. I think this will be a good weekend as long as we don't have any crashes. Stoner had the bike get away from him a few times, I think he may have asked for a little bit of traction control finally! most unhappy person had to be lorenzo lol, especially at the end of the session when no one was around him when he sat down lol

MotoGP » Stoner out of reach in Silverstone practice

Right now the only person riding a GP bike similarly to how the old 500s were ridden is CS. He is spinning and sliding the bike around every corner, and very significantly and convincingly. That, is talent. Because now you have all the fuel economy, and electronics, and everything else that is trying to mess with the balance of the bike, not just the throttle control in your right hand. AND another thing is that the bridgestones are also much peakier, with much harder carcasses, and often times very difficult to get to work. I have a feeling stoner puts plenty of heat and keeps the heat in the tire by lighting the rear up, and keeps the heat in the front tire by pushing the front so much. If you ask me, I bet stoner began to struggle with the ducati as they attempted to make the bike rideable for OTHER people and not just stoner. However I feel the carbon fiber chassis just is an epic failure, as it's, well, just a giant spring without much damping. That said, I really hope va

MotoGP » Lorenzo concerned by Silverstone pace

I think Lorenzo is just as smooth, if not smoother than rossi at this point. However I feel he is going to have to push the bike outside of his comfort zone if he's going to really make a few tenths up. With everyone on the same tires, you have the situation that stoner is quite simply riding the tires off the bike. he is drifting the bike harder, and really on the throttle harder and crazier than lorenzo. It's not just the top speed that is putting him out of reach, because look at dovizioso. Dovi and Lorenzo have very similar very smooth styles. Casey is dirt tracking the honda and taking advantage of the electronics that allow such beautiful perfect slip angle without destroyign and smoking the tires up too much, combined with a chassis that is very forgiving for this style. Lorenzo needs more than just power, he needs to trade smoothness for chance taking and outright speed.
