MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


Nakasone: @rossi: " I don't feel that I'm slower than when I won ten or eleven races in a season. The bigger problem is that my rivals are stronger.....They are more professional and more focussed.” It came out of the horse's mouth. He admitted that his form hasn't dipped, but he wins less now because his rivals are stronger now. Which means that he won his early titles because he had no true rivals.
And how do you know that Rossi (in his prime) wouldn't have upped his game if the competition was stronger? The fact that he is still competitive against these stronger rivals whenever he is 35 after the Ducati shambles makes me think he would have been beating them in his prime and strengthens his legendary status. However, this is only hypothetical. No one will ever really "know". But you state it like it is fact. Only idiots use hypothetical arguments as fact...

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


That was great (plus I got him to win at 14 - 1 and collected £300.00). It turned into a bit of a procession after the Marquez crash, but it was still brilliant to watch People might say Lorenzo should have used the Medium, but he had a good pace the whole race, so Im not sure he would have been faster. The hard suited him. That makes the victory even better for Vale. Hopefully he can stay at this level for the rest of the season and claim second from Dani

MotoGP » Dovizioso: We're getting closer all the time


I'm happy to see more bikes making their way to the front, and Dovi and Ianonne are doing a great job. I just hope the team aren't fooling themselves too much, because they have been given advantages. And, without sounding like a prick, being given an advantage, gives you an advantage..... Because of the upcoming rule changes, does this not mean that a lot of the advantages given to Ducati this year will be taken away again over the course of 2015 / 2016?

MotoGP » Colin Edwards steps down at Forward


aeolus:
DB8: why doesn't Bradl move now, Cal move on to Bradls bike, and Iannone onto Cals bike. They may as well do it now in my opinion
Well there are contracts after all. Colin said he had a contract till the end of the season so one might suppose he still will collect the remaining payments. I'll bet Cal is taking a pay cut to leave Ducati so he won't be in any hurry to leave but he is right to leave as he does not seem to be getting on with the Ducati. The top rides are locked in except maybe for Dani's but it would take a really strong showing to knock him off his perch. Jack Miller? He's a wild card for sure.
Yep, true. Contracts is contracts. If every team and rider thought it might be beneficial to get the riders on the bikes so they're ready for next season, contracts become just bits of paper. They're not in contention for anything this season as it stands, so why not?
