MotoGP » Espargaro: I’m a bit lost now


He talks about Pedrosa He talks about Rossi He talks about Lorenzo He talks about Iannone He talks about Marquez He doesn't talk about his team mate who is getting on with the job. If he carries on like this, Mr Yamaha might not be so keen to give him all the new toys and may even cast his eyes in other directions next year.

MotoGP » Marquez tempted by 2014 chassis switch


RealDrWho: Sorting out engine problems by using an old chassis? The problems can't be fixed it's the character of the engine and not the bike itself. Doing 6 or 7 laps and telling it feels better? I think Marquez had too many knocks on the head already his crashes except last weekend happened in the latter part of the race and not within 7 laps. Nice try but that's another fail/fall... Marquez should change his riding style too, Pedrosa rode more smoother and took a podium finish.
Perhaps Marquez is keen to win races/championships rather than be a runner-up. How many championships has Dani won with his 'smoother' style? And how many has Marc won?

MotoGP » Marquez tempted by 2014 chassis switch


Polyccio: So those two titles were down to the bike then? Rossi and Lorenzo don't have a bike that lets them ride around out of control. Maybe he should follow Dani's example and learn to ride in a more controlled manner and not expect a trick gearbox and electronics to do everything for him. I'd love to see him on a Tech3 Yamaha, that would be really interesting...
Yes, must have been the bike which is why his team mate was always second. Or not. Follow Dani's example? Like never winning a championship? Do you think that DP doesn't use a 'trick gearbox and electronics'? Or Rossi or Lorenzo? It would not be interesting.

MotoGP » Espargaro: I’m a bit lost now


martin.mm.108: the bike is the problem, he rides like VR he's a late braker.... Lorenzo's M1 is designed for that terrible 250cc wheels in line style, while all these kids from moto2 are used to brake deeper and slide that thing around corners something the Lorenzo M1 will never do... best thing he can do is try Rossi's chassis, but it may not be enough.
Remind me, which bike is currently at #1 and #2 in the championship?

F1 » Horner bemoans conservative tyres, wants F1 sprints


But... they are all using the same tyres and should be able to set up their cars accordingly. Pirelli are doing a grand job supplying tyres to a rubbish spec. However, why on earth they would want to stay in F1 baffles me as their public perception is beginning to be that of a rubbish tyre maker. And what Horner wants is not relevant. His job is to run his team and not impose his grand plans on us. Mr Horner, send your ideas to the F1 'Don't change your helmets' Strategy Group. I'm sure they'll be carefully scrutinised and then placed in the circular filing cabinet.

MotoGP » Points priority for Smith after ‘solid performance’


KnowNothing: I was very negative about BS up until the last couple of races. I think he's gaining respect through solid performances, not running his mouth off and just doing his job. To my admitted surprise, he is quite clearly besting his teammate at this point. Well done, hope others who've sharply criticized him as I did will take a fresh look at his standings.
Good words. I just checked his results this year. 8-6-6-8-6-5-5 I think we can deem that consistent. And consistency wins things. This year Smith has developed into a sensible and quick rider. Very much in the same mould as Pedrosa. He may not win much but he'll always be up there scoring good points.

F1 » McLaren needs an ‘extreme approach’ to win again


I'm not sure that changing your PU supplier is necessarily 'radical'. They knew they would get nowhere with a Merc unit, RBR had Renault as most favoured customer and the very idea of a Ferrari PU in the back of a Macca would have turned Ron's blood to human type. They had nowhere to go. Honda were sniffing around and wanted a decent team to supply. In theory, a dream team. Some dreams turn out to be nightmares though... Perhaps new engine suppliers should be cut a bit of slack in their first year and allowed more in-season testing time.
