MotoGP » Pits to victory for Marquez in Germany


As nobody seems to have mentioned it - A good ride from Redding. Criutchlow post-race took another bite at the hand that feeds, blaming the team for putting on the wrong front tyre. He did say he was looking forward to next year with the team so perhaps he will take the option and stay, if they want him... And even allowing for the wrong brakes, very disappointing to see a satellite Honda being comfortably beaten by a CRT bike. I expect there will be a few announcements during the break about next years rides. Looks like there could be a few satellite seats available...

MotoGP » Rossi: There was something wrong


Huskymick:
Joeski: @ Husky mick Oh also do not forget that if they had the exact same bodies and brain..you would really have a great point then..... Ok I sound sarcastic but I am actually referring to body weight, type and such features that drastically affect what the bike does along with riding styles
Great point, real good point, how much does DP weigh and how many titles has he won. next point pls.
And then you have Rossi who, compared to DP, is a veritable whale. Didn't stop him getting a title or two...

MotoGP » German MotoGP - Full Qualifying Results


dickiebird:
dazza0501: Rossi is 35. You don't get faster with age! Age means more experience and maturity but not more speed! Marc is 21 and will only get better!
I thought he was 32, which is still relatively young. Experience should cancel out youthfull exuberance IMO. Personally, I am not all that impressed with the current crop of superstars. I think Stoner's qualifying lap record set in 2008, which was only today beaten by MM by a tenth of a second, says it all. OK, Stoner did it on qualy tyres, but still, that was 6 years ago! The bikes, and particularly the electronic aids, have progressed enormously since then, not to mention the tyres themselves.
If they had progressed enormously, the lap record would have been beaten ages ago. But it wasn't.

MotoGP » Pits to victory for Marquez in Germany


crashnetdummies: MM is the most complete rider but that doesn't contest that start was a complete lottery. Lorenzo got stuck in the pack because he entered pits late during the sighting lap. It is a fair reason to lose 4 seconds in your first lap ? meh.
Lorenzo wanted to change bikes. So he should not have entered the pits late. Also, when he changed bikes, he wasted a lot of time. He practiced jumping from one bike to the other before the race and then forgot to do it when it mattered. Mind you, he certainly made up for it in the race.

MotoGP » Pacesetter Espargaro sweet on new FTR frame


ProfessorX: gotta love those tires, but dont you worry gp fans, Marc will probably have a couple mismarked softs ready for him in qualifying, just in case hes looking to keep binning it, cant have the god of GPs binning it too often. Quick Bridgestone, overnight some specials, pronto!
Don't worry, Honda are introducing their invisible stabiliser wheels for the race after getting the nod from Repsol. They've also used electronics to create a holographic rider (in order to protect Dorna's golden boy) and their laser controlled zapper gun to take out any opposition by turning their fuel into yoghurt is likely to be tested in FP3. The disguise for their v8 3 litre engine hasn't yet been found but then the scrutineers have been told not to look too closely Bridgestones development of their 'special' tyre to allow the rider to lean at angles up to 97deg has been delayed until next race.
