MotoGP » MotoGP podium trio give views on Marquez clash


cont... He had calmed down by this time and I was able to actually get words out of him. He said, "That was my corner and my race. Either I was going to win or we both were going into the gravel." Just because these guys are on bikes doesn't mean you won't find guys with the exact same mentality. You stated that it is "ludicrous" to suggest that MM would make a wild, deliberate move that may also bring himself down. Hate to break it to you hoppy, but, as a general statement, you are wrong. I know it for a fact. Racers do indeed make such moves. On the bikes, Simo used to do it. And MM (in my opinion) is doing it. It is why he is involved in so many incidents. One of the things I really admire about Rossi is that he is like this too, but he is on the correct side of "crazy" but really close to the limit (exactly where you want your guy to be), whereas Simo was and MM currently is on the incorrect side. Hope you enjoyed the story. One of my favourites. Sometimes it's just "Aaaarrrhhh!

You're a stubborn ****** Hoppy :) Don't take any of the following as a criticism per se, just some food for thought. "Why make a deliberate move that could result in both you and your opponent being wiped out?" You haven't raced have you, or if you have, it wasn't for high stakes was it? I was involved in championship racing (4 wheels) at the national level for 30 years. 10 as a racer, 10 as a crew chief and 10 as a sponsor. I once had a guy driving for me. He was a winner. We won 2 championships together and I learnt a lot from him. At one meeting he pulled off the most amazing move I had ever seen (on par with Rossi's pass on Lorenzo on the final corner at Catalunya). After the race, I said to him, "What was going through your mind??" I really wanted to know because I was simply in awe of the move and I knew I could never have pulled it off myself. His first response was, "Arrrrrhhhhhhhh!!!" We both laughed. On the trip home I asked him again about what was going through his mind

@hoppy I think you're way off-base on this one. Why would anyone surplant their own opinion on an issue for the opinion of someone else? Not trying to be rude, but that is a bit stupid. How many times have Rossi and Stoner looked at the incident? How closely did they analyse the incident? What camera angles did they watch? How much is the fact that MM and Stoner are sponsored by the same company contributing to Stoner's answer? How much is the fact that Rossi may be looking for a ride with Repsol next year influencing his answer? (If you don't think sponsor considerations like these influence what comes out of a racer's mouth then you can't have had any direct involvement with motorsport). Unless you know the exact answer to each of the questions above, I think you are foolish to suggest that anyone saying something contrary to what Stoner and Rossi is saying something unlikely to be true. Your opin

MotoGP » Tyre switch 'unfair and unsafe', Honda out of Aragon


Dorna are trying to nobble Stoner? What a load of rubbish. That's just plain out loser talk from overwrought fans. As silly as people saying Honda has been favouring Pedrosa since Stoner's retirement announcement. I really like Stoner's response to this issue, "I don't like it, but we'll find a way around it." Pedrosa's response, as a racer, was pathetic loser talk, "It's unfair". Once a racer starts talking about how "unfair" things are rather than how they're going conquer all no matter what's thrown at them, that's when you know you've got a loser on your hands. I used to love it when our competitors talked about how "unfair" things were or, better still, how we must be cheating. Talk like that is music to a winner's ears because you know they're struggling. The fact is, things are often unfair in motorsport, particularly officiating and the applicaiton of rules. It's just another obstacle to be overcome.
