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

shamarone: re: "It'll be interesting to see how MM stacks up against the all time greats" what'll be interesting is to see him succumb to the law of NATCORK (iron clad this) by moving from the hedge of protection afforded him by Repsol cash...? and riding "ne'er-do-well" kit like the Ducati or the Suzuki.
And Lorenzo. Dismissed for only riding one make. And Rossi. Damned because he couldn't win on a Ducati. And every other champion because they weren't on terrible bikes. Until they have 24 identical bikes selected at random, it's all rubbish. It's no good wishing for primitive technology. Once the ECU + software is standarised the grid will be more equal. If you do away with it entirely then I must insist on drum brakes, cross-ply tyres and overhead valves, just like ye olde days.

F1 » Hamilton: Nico has got another gift

Googolplex: Why does he say these things? Please someone competent start managing Lewis's PR.
Max Clifford would do that but he's a bit busy these days. XIX know exactly what they're doing. Spice Girls, Beckhams, Murray, Pop Idol, American Idol, Elvis Presley's estate, Muhammed Ali's business interests and so on are down to them. All the fangirls buy tons of merchandise and any utterance is reported. Being a nice, quiet, intelligent chap is not good for PR. Lulu is great for PR.

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.

F1 » Qualifying will ‘be a bit tighter than you expect’ – Bottas

Matt2: At the point Williams is now, there is absolutely no reson to give car for someone else than team racing driver. What ever sponsor money they get out of running Susie they are losin (and especially Valtteri) on sunday race.
Indeed, I mean, its not like she's married to an executive director in the company that supplies engines or to someone who owns 16% of Williams F1, is it?
