MotoGP » Dovizioso making Tech 3 MotoGP podium history


Maybe what this Championship needs is more manufactures (Suzuki, Kawasaki, BMW, Aprilia) and looking for more younger Talent coming through rankings in Moto 2 i.e Esparago, Redding, Iannone, Luthi and maybe even WSB as i'd like to see what Jonny Rea could do on a RCV. Otherwise all we gonna get is musical chairs with the current crop just moving between each other. Me for 1 would love to see Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Marquez, Iannone, Esparago, Redding, Luthi, Jonny Rea, Crutchlow, Bradl all on Factory Machines battling week in week out and these guys are the Future of GP at the current moment until Vinales, Fenati and Cortese make there way through

MotoGP » Dovizioso making Tech 3 MotoGP podium history


Well i like most people would think that Pedrosa is a much better rider than Dovi. Im not saying Dovi is a bad rider by any means. Dovi must be feeling quite lucky right now that there is a possible Factory ride out there. If HRC didn't re-sign Pedrosa then Yamaha would have certainly given him a Factory Ride alongside Jorge and Dovi would'nt have been going back to HRC and left without a Factory Ride option

WSBK » Haslam chasing first Brno WSBK podium


I don't understand how someone who is 5th in World Championship isn't fit to be in there and better off in WSS or BSB?? If it wasnt for Melandri's f**k up at Donnington he would be alot closer to Sykes too. You have to remember Phillip Island too when racing with broken leg. Without those setbacks he could be further up than he is. I think WSB is a perfect level for him and will challenge for Title 1 year soon.

MotoGP » Dovizioso making Tech 3 MotoGP podium history


@Talentfan The difference between Ben's and Dovi's bike are minimal as Tech 3 are backed heavily by Yamaha. Im not a BS or VR fan and im not against Dovi at all and he has done a good job, but again 4 years in GP and 3 on a Factory Bike and 1 win is not good enough. Do you think that if he was on a Factory Yamaha he would be beating Lorenzo and Pedrosa (and Stoner if he was staying) every week on a Factory Yamaha?? Maybe Yamaha should take a gamble on someone in Moto 2 like Repsol have done or CRT like either 1 of the Esparago brothers. Both Young and Talented Riders

MotoGP » Dovizioso making Tech 3 MotoGP podium history


Dovi's podiums have been extremly lucky and not earned by passing Top riders (Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa) to get there. Last week at Mugello with Stoner running hard tyre would have had 3rd place if it was'nt for out braking himself. In Sachsenring Stoner binned it on last lap. Assen Lorenzo was taken out. The only 1 he has beaten a top rider was at Catalunya when he passed Stoner. If it wasn't for those mishaps by Bautista on Lorenzo and Stoner binning it he would only have 1 or maybe 2 podiums. He has had a Factory bike in past and last year was beaten easily by Stoner on same bike and Pedrosa would have too if he never had his injury lay off. 1 win in 2/3 Years on Factory Bike is no different to what Spies is currently doing with only 1 win to his name

MotoGP » Lorenzo to Ben Spies: Stay calm and focused


@Rocket R1 Plus BMW will see Spies as a big coup to help there bike sales in America and Ducati will want to retain Hayden for there sales in America too plus both can still do a job at WSB no doubt. Rumours are strong that if Dovi doesnt get a Factory Yamaha ride then Aprilia will make a big money deal to see another Italian in WSB alongside Biaggi and for the Future as it would mean MotoGP dreams for Dovi would be gone with Honda already shut door on Dovi and Yamaha could do too
