MotoGP » Max Yamabiko: MotoGP wings - trend or foe?


they're an obvious talking point. Kawasaki have some pretty serious wings on the H2/r. I wonder was their intention to mitigate wheelies, or some stability aid? As for the safety element f them - wise up. Do you think that the wings ars they are will form an important element in a crash? compared to, say, a handlebar, a chain, or 160kg of motorcycle? Splintered/fractured carbon fibre will be more dangerous, and the bikes are covered in that. Anyone who suggests wings on dani's bike would've had any meaningful contribution is not thinking.

MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo to leave Yamaha


It'll be an interesting conflict of interest for Ducati fans, given that they're all probably spoken ill of JL last year. Being patriotic straight after their brand loyalty. I think that the Maverick signature will be for Repsol. Dani to Suzuki, and a wing-man (Dovi or Dani) to Yamaha. Regardless, Yamaha have just kissed off any chance of a rider title for the next two years. 2016 for MM, 2017 between him and JLo. Rossi knew and still knows the significance of last year's defeat. MM won't be out of the running like that again in his career.

MotoGP » Yamaha: Each day reduces chance of Lorenzo staying


It really won't affect the fact that Rossi won't win another title regardless. Whether MV is at the Yamaha team and gets drawn into VRs ego battles will be interesting. VR tried and failed to keep JL in a box, & it didn't work. How do the VR fans expect him to react if/when MV starts beating him in the same team? I still think that VR will push for a benign teammate, like Pedrosa or Dovi. For sure, just like last year, and the biggest shock of all to VR, when he goes canvassing around the paddock, he'll get lots of rubber ears.
