MotoGP » PIC: Valentino Rossi's 'WTF' Misano helmet

@Spike72 which is less than the man he said last year wasn't trying. What must REALLY hurt Rossi is Preziosi's recent reported comment that he would like Stoner to test the GP12 to see if he finds it better and Stoner's response on being told baout this that he felt when he left the bike was capable of winning everywhere and they had made a big step forward at the end of last year. The Mouth is really being exposed this year like never before.

MotoGP » Lorenzo jumps in front during Misano FP2

For those from government education, 2 pints are 1 quart, 4 quarts are 1 gallon. @ Sd500 Us gallon is smaller than imperial but that is some kind of historical hysteria. But not 2 pints smaller. Your right - memory failed me. Should have checked it. Its actually 6.660800704 pints (which is actually a ridiculous accuracy, it should more correctly be given as 6.6608 pints as it is a calculated conversion based on a lowest accuracy of 4sf as outlined below). This comes from the Geick Technical Formula handbook (1996 edition) by taking 3.785/4.546 x 8 (the litres in a US gal/litres in an Imp gal x Pints per gal)

MotoGP » San Marino MotoGP, Misano - Saturday practice

Some daft comments about how close Pedrosa is this sesson. Have any of you looked at the time sheets? Nearly ALL Stoner's times were in the 1:33s (five laps IIRC) while Pedrosa - doing more laps than Stoner - only manged two. Its not qualifying anyway, but as things stand just now Stoner is holding a much clearer advantage than the single fastest lap suggests - and Lorenzo only managed one single lap in the 1:33s

MotoGP » Pedrosa hoping for 'step forward' at Misano

He was pretty crushing there last year. I get the feeling it'll be closer than Indy at least. Posted by MrQwerty (9 minutes ago) Hmmmm, Pedrosa was VERY crushing at Indy last year too, and if you took away Stoner from this year Pedro would have replicated that form this year. In fact, Pedro was so strong at Indy last year that in another place someone said they would be astonished if Pedro didn't run and hide from everyone because he owns Indy!

MotoGP » Indianapolis MotoGP - Race results

OK, just to have some facts instead of supposition. Remove Stoner and recalculate all race points awarded (ie, act as if Stoner isn't racing). Actual points is in brackets Stoner (243) 1st - JL on 224 (199) pts (incl 5 race wins and 2 2nds) 2nd - Dovi on 209 (174) pts (3 wins - 2 when Pedro was not running or DNF'd) 3rd - Spies on 145 (125) 4th - Pedrosa on 144 (130) 5th - Rossi on 142 Remove Stoner and it is far from clear that the Honda is better - good yes, but better - not clear. You could even argue the Yamaha is better. Where-ever Stoner is, his detractors seem to claim the bike is better than it is. Go back and do the same thing for when he was at Ducati and you will see just how rubbish that bike has always been.

MotoGP » Stoner blasts to Brickyard pole

@ John: And lets not forget the ducati Stoner won his Title on is the same bike Capirossi almost won the 2006 title on but for his injury mid season. Ducati was much stonger then-you only have to compare stoner in 2007 to stoner in 2010. OK, with this stupidity you are officially not worth paying any attention to. 2006 was a 990. If teh 07 and 06 bikes were so similar, explain why your example was nowhere in 07? Capirex was still a really good rider then and the 'smart' opinion at the time was that although Stoner was proving quick in testing, Capirex would show him what it meant to race when the flag dropped. Didn't get close to happening did it?
