MotoGP » Honda, Yamaha discuss Ducati advantages


It's been very messy with CRTs, open bikes, factory bikes, factory open bikes etc but at least motoGP is heading in the right direction. 2015 is another multi-class championship but come 2016 there will be one set of rules for all and there will be at least 2 new factory teams. Contrast this with F1 where the big 5 teams are locking out the others and doing their best to prevent any new teams from thriving. I believe that 2016 will see a winner come from other than the Honda/Yamaha factory teams. And that will be very good for the sport.

MotoGP » Moto2: Rabat record, Marquez knocks confidence


Promotion from the lower class guarantees nothing. Salom, Terol, Cortese. All champions but all disappointing in m2. There again, perhaps AM is trying to refine his big brothers learning process. Marc tended to fall off in the early races and once he learnt to stay on, he started winning. Alex may be getting the falling off stage completed during testing...

F1 » F1: Maldonado eyes qualifying improvement


Pastor is like a bargain basement version of Montoya in a bargain basement car. His sack of loot may be attractive to the team but they needed points to be allowed to stick their noses into the really big trough and he hasn't got any. Force India have one driver with the moolah and one without and yet are managing to give McLaren a headache and will end up with a substantial amount as a prize to add to their income, which is better than a large bill for repairs and a sneer from Bernie.

F1 » F1: McLaren delays driver decision


"..in order to avoid distracting the race team from its primary objective during the final Grand Prix weekend of the season, which is to secure the best possible on-track results, we have decided to defer our final deliberations relating to our 2015 driver line-up until a date no earlier than Monday December 1st." Excuse me. The final weekend will be over by the 24th so you could announce then without distracting the team. No need to delay a further week. There are clearly 'other reasons' why the announcement is being delayed but we are deemed not worthy of knowing. Someone should tell them that announcing with a 'Big Brother' type delay does not create excitement, only irritation.

MotoGP » Moto2: Rabat record, Marquez knocks confidence


JedPB67:
mrfill: Salom, Terol, Cortese. All champions but all disappointing in m2.
I'd hardly call Luis Salom disapointing (Wouldn't call him a champion either seeing as how he hasn't achieved one yet), but he had 2 podiums at the start of the season. Yes there were a run of tail end point scoring rides but he did a lot better than most rookies. Plus he finished the season with a 4th place finish. Without M.Vinales in the equation then he was the best rookie with 8th in the World Championship. Meaning hes the 5th best Moto2 rookie ever behind M.Marquez, M.Vinales, Bradley Smith and Terol!
26 points out the last 12 races is poor, especially as 13 of those points were in the final race. He started really well and then collapsed, not even in the top 10 until the end. And as moto2 has only been going since 2010, it makes Salom the worst best rookie ever. Sorry about the champion bit, got that wrong. Ever so nearly a champ though... :)

MotoGP » Moto2: Alex Rins 'very happy' with debut


Yearby23: Come on Rins! I said a while ago that out of the 2 Alex's it would be Rins who would be the better Moto2 rider. It's only a test but I think it will be apparent more throughout the season.
You would think so, except I would have thought Salom would have performed vastly better this season but he didn't. Similarly, Folger (who I rate highly) showed only glimpses of how good he is. Rins is a good, intelligent rider and ought to do well and beat Marquez, but moto2 is an odd beast.
