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 » 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.

MotoGP » Hernandez: I want to stay here

Bandini: Mrfill Yonny is a well known to as a pay rider using state sponsorship to pay for his ride. More than a little perplexing given the economic situation of Columbia. r
I'm sorry, I dont buy this. I don't believe he is 'state sponsored'. Searching for 'Yonny Hernandez state sponsorship' reveals no mentions. Only stories about needing more money. As for the other pay riders. These are riders with personal sponsorship deals - which is most of the field in all 3 classes. A team will take them on because of ability and size of brown envelope. Sure, some dodgy riders have rich backers and should not be in the field, but some teams are that desperate for help. Pramac are not one of them. They are well looked after by Ducati - a subsidiary of the richest car maker in the world and with just one dealer in Colombia. Hernandez may lose his seat but it will be because the team have found a better option, nothing to do with nationality.
