MotoGP » Suzuki will consider expanding MotoGP effort


TF2: All satellite teams do in the final analysis is fill grid spots and pack the midfield. The Factory's always keep the very best for themselves so extra Satellite teams just equals more bikes controlled and regulated on the grid, with ZERO increase in true competitors. Racing needs all teams to have the FREEDOM and the OPPORTUNITY to properly compete. Adding more Factory dependent 2nd stringers just fills track space. Sorry but that's the 100% true bottom line.
Have you provided your insights to the F1, WRC, BSB, etc. camps as well? :)

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


Duds123: Remember Hayden on the Repsol Honda ran with Pedrosa and even won the title against Dani. Now suddenly you have him running behind even Bradley and others in 10th spot!
I sure do. I also remember that he had two seasons following that WC win that resulted in him losing his seat because he was 6th & 8th on a factory HRC bike.....while Pedrosa was 3rd both years (..and 2nd when Nicky won the WC in 2006). People will say it was "developed for Pedrosa", etc. etc....but I just see it as significantly declining results to go from a lucky, but well deserved 1st to 6th and 8th.

MotoGP » Michelin front main question for 2016


TF2: You blithely/blindly bash on about riders superiority, yet are happy to do so from a series where restriction and favouritism don't actually demand riders to win against rivals with equal opportunity. The top 4 have NO others with the support to challenge.
What auto/moto series DOESN'T have a hierarchy replete with restrictions, "favoritism"...or more accurately stated, factory top tier teams with lower run satellite and/or customer options, etc.? Name ONE. Just ONE. You are disregarding the Ducati FACTORY team (simply because they haven't performed in recent years) and the fact that HRC ran a 3 bike factory team for multiple seasons. Technically there are 6 bikes which should be included, and multiple SUPPORTED satellite factory entries that should be as well. The top riders are the top riders for a reason TF. All other things aside, that holds true. There aren't any better riders currently on the grid than Marquez, Rossi, Lorenzo and Pedrosa.

MotoGP » Michelin front main question for 2016


Indianbear:
Realist:
notm4bs: This is all well and good until Marquez crashes and really gets hurt, then what?
What does that have to do with anything? Dani is more than capable of fighting at the front. In 14 seasons he has only not been 1st, 2nd or 3rd on four occasions. He's got a really solid track record. He can hold his own.
if there where more than four bikes in the race he would be in trouble
There's a flaw in that theory. There were more than "four" bikes in '07, '08, '09, '10 etc. See where I'm going with this? You can't claim that he just so happened to get lucky with all of those 2nd's and 3rd's in the WC's over a lengthy career without looking silly in the process.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks


TF2: I think Marc has had the luxury of being able to stay within the limits of his package in races, and yet have the pace to win. He is great and aggressive in overtaking I agree, and takes his chances - but the way he can shadow others and then make a move when he wants says his package gives him something in hand to play with as well. ..... Which means that MM might be a very different rider without his HRC cushion. That's not 'hate' or any of that kiddie silly stuff against MM, that's just a reasonable observation IMO.
I think you underestimate him quite a bit TF2. MM has dominated without rider aids in M2 and the lower class, and his riding style incorporates a significant amount of insane braking maneuvers where the rear wheel is off of the ground (thus relying simply on the brakes, the front suspension, the balance and the will of the rider). In MM's specific situation, I think the aids play a lesser part in the overall picture.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


Duds123: That's interesting bud. I agree. If Hayden was on the same bike as MM, how many seconds a lap do you think MM will be quicker by? The other question I ask is, for MM to go quicker than his current times, must he find more speed in himself or must they find it in the bike? In other words, has either him or the bike reached their respective limits?
I can't say for sure, but I would bet that MM would be quicker around the track without a doubt. I think MM is better at exploiting the limits of the bike, and his riding style gels well with the Honda.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


Duds123: Funny thing, ask anyone of those racers and I think they will agree more with me. Ask Hayden if he was on Marquiz's bike, would he be running up front with the top 4? I think we know his answer! LOL
I don't think Hayden would be in the top 4 on MM's bike. He'd be in the top 10, but not the top 4. Hayden is not the rider.........nothing close to the rider.........that MM or any of the top 4 are.
