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

MotoGP » Lorenzo to Ben Spies: Stay calm and focused


My thoughts for next year in the whole World Superbikes and MotoGP drama is: BMW = Melandri, Spies Ducati Althea = Hayden (If Checa does leave to either Aprilia or Kawasaki as rumoured), Haslam?? Ducati (MotoGP) = Crutchlow, Redding Yamaha = Lorenzo, Rossi (Sponsor Money too much to turn away) Tech 3 = Dovi, Smith San Carlo Gresini = Iannone (if bautista doesnt keep ride)

MotoGP » Set-up progress for Crutchlow, Dovizioso


Apparently rumours are Spies is linked back to WSB on a Haslams BMW next year. Rossi's Sponsors are prepared to pay Yamaha Big Money to see there man back on a Factory Competitive bike next year at Yamaha which could swing in Rossi's favour as Yamaha don't have a big main sponsor in GP and would welcome Rossi's sponsor money with open arms. Which then leaves Hayden and Crutchlow at Ducati and Bradley Smith and Dovi on Tech 3

MotoGP » Lorenzo sets high standard at Mugello


As stated you can have all the power and straightline speed but if you don't have the handling of the bike then you won't win. There's more corners on a race track then there is long straights. Proof is in the pudding. Ducati's are really fast in straight line as this weekend proved but when it comes to the corners they lack severly. Yamaha's might not be quickest in straight line but doesnt matter too much as there corner speed is soo impressive and drive out of corners
