MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa: No Spanish title conspiracy


The real pain for Rossi is that none of his compatriots were within range to get to JL. Now, if Rossi had've been in the front two rows, and knowing the pace that JL had, he'd have torpedoed JL into turn two yesterday. And yet some would believe this to be a good result! It would've been his only hope, and you know he'd have done that. Italian, see? The effort of MM can be debated, but consider this - who in their right mind would stick their neck out for Rossi, who has been trying to manipulate this chamionship for the last four races (And failed)? Not to mention instigating a character assassination of MM with the world's press, who are genberally pathetic in their pandering to the great yellow one. Anyone who thinks that Rossi hobbling across the line to take the title should comfort themselves with some Rocky DVDs. And maybe buy their next yellow cap with room to let the blood flow better. He's been a bully and manipulator for plenty long enough, thank you very much.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I was better than Rossi in everything


We all know VR is the most popular and powerful racer on the planet. JL just doen't care. Remember, when VR threw Yamaha an ultimatum, JL just sat it out and retained the seat. Rossi will be ruing his swipes at MM now. And that's the legacy he will have, understanding that he played it all wrong when trying to limp to the title. But hey, he had to try something when he wasn't getting rain! The mind games don't always work, people. And they might even make people think twice before having a go with a lunge at the World Champion elect at the final race of the year. Maybe think about that over the winter. Of course, we could just have a telephone vote for who the champion will be next year. That'd show em! Otherwise, expect to see Rossi lower the tone even further next year.

MotoGP » Rossi blasts Marquez after MotoGP title defeat


Well, if crash.net had been around for Loris Capirossi 's title finales, where would we be? Italian conspiracy? And where IS the motogp safety advisor these days? I reckon MM might've had a lunge at JL had Pedrosa not come through. But he probably had in his mind that Rossi was manipulating everything amd that affected him exactly opposite to how rossi wanted to play him. Those that 'saw'the Honda sandbagging seem to have forgotten about the concertina effect, and the yamaha was smoking them out of the corners. Rossi is an embarrassment, but when people have shelled out £35 for a cap, it's hard to let go....

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I'll give everything to get this title


Rossi illegally manoevered against a rider who would've taken points off Rossi, leaving the title in Jorge's hands. As it is, all Rossi has to do is roll home behind JL and the title is his. As mentioned before, VR did the same to JL in sepang 2010, than MM (NOT his teammate too), affecting JL's WC bid and VR laughed it off. So JL owes VR squat. And JL got a race ban in the past, Simoncelli got a ride through etc etc for less than Rossi. So he's interested in rules being evenly applied to all riders, and not dependant upon how many hats and t-shirts you've sold. I predict big, big trouble on the terraces at Valencia on Saturday and Sunday. Cos if the English speaking contingent of MotoGP fans are this animated, the Spanish and Italians are apoplectic.

MotoGP » Rossi blasts Marquez after MotoGP title defeat


This was an effort to manipulate the Honda riders which backfired spectacularly. At least this myth of 'no one beats rossi at mind-games' can be buried. I suppose Pedrosa was in on it too, passing Marquez to protect JL? Yeah right. That's clearly what happened with two laps to go. Rossi was trying to get the Honda riders to risk a pass that would take JL out. It's no secret that VR was and is vital to MotoGP. But his efforts to control everything have been so polarising that his legacy is hugely tarnished for 50% of fans. I also feel quite good for the cheering masses who were so happy when JL crashed at Misano. Karma for them.

MotoGP » CAS rejects Lorenzo ‘intervention’ in Rossi appeal


Surely Rossi has initiated this with his weasily approach to the CAS. And who would that affect? Why, JL of course! So whilst it's not what most people would have done, he feels that having a hearing in whcih he is massively affected but not involved isn't appropriate. Quite how Rossi appears to be smelling of roses in most people's eyes is a mystery. Or maybe not, as he's well versed in courting the media and fans alike with his cartoon persona. Motegi 2010 puts all VR's bitching into clear focus. He's a hypocrite. 'Eeess, racing, whaddaya wan me to do-a' That was his team mate who was chasing the title, so why he expects anything from a rival manufacturer who he has been spouting about is utter folly.

MotoGP » Rossi, Marquez: 2016 ECU ‘step back in time’


The impression of motogp this last six years is that it's the guys with the best laptop bloke who are on the podium. Now, it was always the best engineers who led the way. But somehow a software engineer seems, well, softer. The possibility that we'll have more racing like moto2 and moto3 on a good day is what we'd like to see, so lets hope the rest of the field get a chance to shine in 2016.
