MotoGP » Ecclestone would have DQ’d Rossi for Marquez clash

Mal X: What would the conversation be like if MM was seriously injured? This incident should be kept in context, Safety. The precedent has been set. It is acceptable to injure your fellow rider (and put them out of racing for weeks) and you will on have to start from the rear of grid for the next race only. This will make for great viewing but not end well for the Gladiators (riders). Rossi went wide at one of the slowest corners on the circuit and MM decided to turn into Rossi's side and accelerate. MM choose to crash. MM has also ran into another rider after an end practice lap. He did that at lethal speed difference and had vision problems from that for half a year.

MotoGP » Sentul ‘a street circuit’ for 2017 MotoGP

Are we to be impressed with anything "Monaco"? Monaco is like racing in a parking garage? I've looked over the circuit on Google Maps (Sentul International Circuit) and it's a long legged circuit besides a river on the East side and crowded residential neighborhoods on the West and a big fancy Hotel at the end of the Main Straight. Not much room for the addition of three more corners. Wonder if they'll show the "improved circuit"?

MotoGP » Marquez: I’m ready to shake Valentino’s hand

idavidgraficks: "However, Lorenzo's pace was simply too strong." Than why didn't Marquez let Dani who had a half second faster pace in those last five laps pass MM and Lorenzo? Shouldn't letting a teammate win instead of a RIVAL constructor's racer win be priority? If MM didn't interfere - Dani could have placed in front of Lorenzo.
2nd is better than 3rd for Marc. Every man for himself.
Who says Marc couldn't be second if Jlo had his pace disturbed and Pedrosa is half a second ahead?

MotoGP » Rossi blasts Marquez after MotoGP title defeat

Garcia: Maybe if you had beaten Pedrosa in Aragon or lannone in Phillip lsland, or if you hadn't committed illegal action in sepang, maybe you could have won. But you didn't. All this blaming Marquez is just pathetic. What have you become Rossi..
At Aragon, Pedrosa was quite willing to force Rossi off the track in the last lap (which Pedrosa did). Rossi had a WC to lose in that risky battle with Pedrosa. MM didn't show anywhere near the aggression to Lorenzo at Valencia that MM gave Rossi at Sepang. Look over Valencia's last three laps. Pedrosa had the race pace to pass both Lorenzo and MM - so what happens? - Pedrosa sent wide by MM and both lose time to Lorenzo. MM defended Lorenzo well.

MotoGP » Rossi blasts Marquez after MotoGP title defeat

Answer honestly please. Can you say the MM we have watched for years pull some incredible moves was actually trying 100% to win that race for Honda, or just making sure the title stayed in Spain as JL said? Of course MM went for it. It made no difference to the championship outcome weather it was MM93 first and JLO second. Had JLO finished 2nd, the VR and JLO would be equal on points, but JLO would have won the championship on most wins. For the last six laps Pedrosa had a half second faster pace - had not MM edged out Pedrosa in the last Honda/Yamaha engagement - Pedrosa would have passed Jlo and MM would have a chance at overtaking Jlo -but we know what happened.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Only the rider knows

totty: I'd call it a well balanced and sensible answer from Dovi. I'm not surprised that Marquez made no early attempts to pass Lorenzo. It may also be true that due to Pedrosa's move he couldn't make an attempt on the last lap. Sitting behind and mugging on the last lap is a preferred tactic of Marquez and many others. However what I would like to see questioned is why didn't Marquez make a move when Pedrosa was closing in fast. At that stage he knew that Pedrosa would shortly make a move on him. This is a pattern you see in races all of the time, riders make a move earlier if they are under threat themselves. Also Marquez didn't fight back on Pedrosa, Pedrosa ran wide in the pass so the door was left open. I think there is some truth in Rossi's accusations, but the "facts" aren't that clear cut.
I watched the last two laps several times - Dani was sent outside by Marquez in the last engagement with Lorenzo. If MM didn't have the pace (like he says he didn't

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Hardest race of my career

It's been over two and a half hours since the Valencia Moto GP race ended and no communications from Rossi. I suppose Rossi wanted to see the race video to understand what happened at the front. Not one attempted pass of Lorenzo by MM all race, but when Pedrosa (who had a half second better pace than either Jlo or MM) passes MM, instant fight and MM sends Pedrosa to the very edge of the track (more so than Rossi did to MM at Sepang). Rossi will see it and will be fuming.
