MotoGP » Home MotoGP title not a target for Marquez

Braahp: It's hard to know if MM winning in this way is bad for the show or good, the only question now is how many races he can win in a row because, lets face it, he's already won the championship. Luckily most of the races have been pretty good so far but for me the main show has been in Moto3. I do feel that MM's performance has been slightly flattered by always having the best equipment and rock solid sponsorship so It'll be interesting to see how MM stacks up against the all time greats in the end because he's certainly a phenomenon.
Lorenzo has had the best equipment since 2008, Pedrosa has had the best equipment since 2006. Rossi has had the best equipment (ignore the Ducati years) since Noah launched the ark. I don't think their performances have been flattered. And as for sponsorship, no matter how much you have, it doesn't make you a better rider. Comparing against the greats is always iffy No-one has seen Ago race one of these bikes, so comparis

MotoGP » Home MotoGP title not a target for Marquez

TalentFan: History will be full of the same comments as those directed at Ago. Which is that Marquez's vast equipment and electronics data advantage over a 3 tier field meant he only really had one guy to beat - Pedrosa.
Better add Stoner's name to the list. Same 'vast equipment and electronics data advantage' on the Honda in 2011 and on the Ducati in 2007. He didn't manage to beat his team mates in every race though. The electronics argument is being addressed by the standard software in 2016. Any equipment advantage is just down to better engineering within the given rules - which is the idea in prototype racing. However, I agree that a lot of the contrived record beating is meaningless pontification. One thing is for sure though - it has been many, many years since one rider has so comprehensively dominated, winning every race (so far) in a season.

MotoGP » Moto2: Rabat confirmed at Marc VDS for 2015

Seems a simple choice really. Either stay in moto2 in a team you like, on a bike you like and that can (and does) win, or go to GP to an unfamiliar team, on an unfamiliar bike that its not worth learning on (as it will only be relevant for one season) and which has little chance of finishing in the top 8. A moto2 championship looks better on the CV than a few points in motogp. Tito, like Kallio, is right at the top of the moto2 field. I don't think either would be outstanding in GP but would remain in high demand on the 600s for a while.

F1 » Rosberg reveals World Cup tribute helmet

Pakundo: I didn't realise Monaco won the world cup
here we go again! despite what lulu says, nico was not born in monaco, so cannot have a monegasque passport.
If you have lived there for over 10 years* and renounce any other nationality, a resident can become a naturalised citizen and have a Monegasque passport. Athough it might be described as a Monacan passport as a Monegasque has to be born in Monaco. *If the Prince says so, the 10 year rule can be ignored.
