MotoGP » Bautista satisfied with Aprilia progress

ampere: What a shame for Bautista. Aprilia seem to have arrived with an under-developed machine.
Bautista and Melandri were well aware of what they were getting into by signing with Aprilia. They PURPOSELY came into the class on a lackluster machine (effectively a WSBK RSV4) to get the experience. This bike will be jettisoned once their full prototype effort is revealed. At that point Bautista will reap the reward because is back on a factory team.

MotoGP » Sam Lowes linked to MotoGP with Aprilia

If he's smart he'll take the seat. The objective is to hit the premier class, and with a full prototype Aprilia hitting the scene in 2016, now is the best time for him to make the jump. Bautista will have developed the bike enough to make it a likely top 10 contender, and Lowes can jump on and ride the developmental wave that Bautista already started......all while being fairly competitive from the start. Do it Lowes!

MotoGP » Pedrosa surprised by end-of-race pace

Yearby23: Assen and Sachsenring aren't good tracks for Jorge but why bring a new chassis that doesn't suit the rider who had won 4 races in a row for you? It just happened to suit Valentino perfectly though!
This is the kind of stuff that annoys me about you guys. You pull random conspiracy theories out of your asses. BOTH Rossi and Lorenzo tested the 2015 chassis in Aragon (as mentioned in the article on June 17th), but it just so happens that it helped Rossi improve more than it did Lorenzo simply because of their riding style. They run different specifications because they ride differently. Lorenzo didn't gain anything from it because he isn't a late-braker. He's a sweeper. Stop making it seem like there is some grand conspiracy. You were absent from the comments section of that thread. Maybe you should go read it.

MotoGP » Pedrosa surprised by end-of-race pace

BlackMamba99: Just accept the fact that Jorge is a superior Qualifier and a Racer to Rossi. Why the sudden change of chassis when things were going so well for Jorge? because Rossi was languishing behind and getting his ar*e handed to him?
All ridiculousness aside, the statistics don't support that Lorenzo is a better "racer" than Rossi. Also, the assertion that Yamaha is sabotaging Lorenzo is such an antiquated conversation piece. Both riders were complaining of corner entry/exit issues, and THAT'S why Yamaha brought new chassis designs for them to try. It's called CONTINUALLY DEVELOPING THE BIKE. If Lorenzo didn't like the new design or it didn't improve anything for him, that's the breaks. It happens. Rossi hasn't languished behind Lorenzo since 2013, so at what point was Lorenzo getting the measure?

MotoGP » MotoGP software freeze underway

BlackMamba99: Rossi beat Jorge in 2008 and 09? so what? Jorge was still a newcomer back then. I would say the accident in 2010 saved some of his reputation since he would've gotten humiliated by Jorge that year anyway.
If Rossi is ordinary, what does that make every other rider on the grid? Also, when Rossi crashed, they were separated by 7-ish points. It was only the 3rd race of the season, and Rossi won a race and had a 2nd and 3rd, and Lorenzo won a race and had two 2nd places. How on Earth you derived that he was going to be humiliated is beyond me. You sound so ignorant.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on

armin899: Now the only thing, i mean the only thing that can change that is if Bridgestone continues giving Marquez the 2014 spec tyres and rubbish compounds to the Yamahas. We have seen that happening in Germany.
Stop perpetuating this fallacy man. They all had access to the 2014 and 2015 tires. Rossi and Lorenzo CHOSE to use the asymmetical tire because of their bikes' design and their riding style. Dani and Marquez chose the harder option and it paid off. Stop acting like Marquez was the only rider who had the option of using the other tire.

MotoGP » Bradley Smith ‘shows another dimension’

JedPB67: I know Pol is struggling in 2015, but people seem to be quick to forget how impressive his first season was. I remember Julian Ryder and Toby Moddy discussing it at Laguna a few years ago saying that it's quite common for a GP newcomer to struggle in their second season: Crutchlow, Smith, both Espargaros have and did, Kallio, etc. but they usually regain their momentum in the third year.
Memories and attention spans are short here on Crash. They are dismissing Pol, but they were real quiet when Pol took it to his teammate during his rookie year on a new bike.

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself

HansieMGP: Crutchlow has the luck of a few experienced LCR team with an excellent head technician, and even he is having problems, even at one of his most favorite tracks
Even when Crutchlow has problems he still ends up in the top 10. It's not luck. Crutchlow is a better GP rider than Redding. I hope another rider gets Redding's bike just so the point can be proven.
