MotoGP » Crutchlow regrets tyre choice as 'average' first half ends


dizzydesmo04: He's out on his ear again come the end of the year and will go where-ever the cash is - a journeyman rider.
Do you really think he'll lose his LCR seat this year? Serious question. I'm looking for your opinion. I don't see it happening because his performance hasn't been bad. It has been average with a glimpse of above average by nabbing the podium. Stranger things have happened though.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on


vonich: Though mathematically MM still in play for championship. But his chances of winning this year title is very slim. You talking about a collapse for both Yamaha rider on the second half of the championship for them not to win. MM have to win at least 8 races and rossi finished 3rd or MM win 7 and rossi finished 4th or worst. Then JL have to finished no higher than 3rd.
I agree 100%. It will be a Yamaha rider who lifts the WC this year.

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


realfan: MV may be a rookie on a new bike but the team know the bike well and know how to get the best from it.
You can't honestly believe that Suzuki are that well sorted right now. They are still learning that bike and improving it incrementallly. Maybe Vinales is just a better rider.
realfan: @ realist And how do we know he's not riding his bike with the settings his team have dialled in to its full potential?
They aren't idiots. At this point it's safe to assume (since we're all speculating and assuming) that the team has tried everything in their ar$enal to help him go fast.

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


TheBoogieMan: Its obvious to everyone except his fans that hes not top 10 motogp material unless at least 4 of the top 10 riders crash infront of him, doesnt make him a bad motorcycle racer just not nearly as good as he thought he would be on a factory spec RCV. Right now im not sure why any team would be interested in him as his stock is at a all time low and there are fast Brits in the pipeline to MotoGP.
..and this is the bottom line.

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


MattyMKO745: @armin899 Nice opinion, I don't see anything wrong with it really, but I slightly disagree... Riders are a lot closer now than they were in the time Marco was riding... Now you can be 0.5 behind and outside top 10, which was not happening couple of years ago.. Even Scott himself said that his times this year would put him in top 6 or top 8 most of the time last year and this says it all... Needs to put all pieces of the puzzle together first, than he will improve.. First thing HRC needs to do is to make bike a lot easier to ride...
None of that matters because Crutchlow, Bradl and Bautista regularly had that bike in the top 10 and ALL of them had the bike on the podium. All of the other stuff you toss in is just fodder to avoid the core issue (and distract readers who don't pay attention).

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


MattyMKO745:
It's not necessarily about what "Maverick wants", and more about what the team needs. The focus is on developing the bike. You make it sound like Mav is a golden boy who gets his every wish. He's merely a class rookie getting the most out of his undeveloped package. He's in no better place than his teammate in terms of his equipment. Even if Redding has to wait, HIS CURRENT PACKAGE is already podium capable, so he's STILL in a better position than AE/MV. Scott is running a specified frame that is longer (because of his height). Other rider data is typically useless for ALL riders, so that doesn't make Redding's case special. No matter what excuse you toss up, it all comes back to Redding not getting the results on a top 10 package.

MotoGP » Crutchlow regrets tyre choice as 'average' first half ends


TheBoogieMan: @realist He is a descent rider but has rode for Yamaha, Ducati and now Honda and hasnt set the world on fire by no means.. If im a team owner id rather take a chance on a young Moto2 rider who may just surprise everyone and couldnt throw the bike in the dirt anymore then Crutchlow already does.
Given the waters he's swimming in, I don't know that a team principal could expect more from him than what he's doing (except less crashes). Him, Smith, and Pol are the three that are jockeying for satellite supremacy. He's not expected to beat the 3 world champions and the bridesmaid.

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


realfan: There is a lot of sh1t getting talked about redding and his performance this season..
Being critical of his performance relative to his peers is not "talking shiit" nor unfair. It's a measure of being observant and objective. Fans are critical of EVERY rider on the grid, including Rossi, Lorenzo, Marquez, etc....so Redding is not excused. Everything you've stated is just a regurgitation of everything his fans have been spinning for months/seasons. Marquez reverting to last year's chassis has everything to do with HIS PERSONAL RIDING STYLE rather than anything else. Redding doesn't ride anything like Marquez, so it's an irrelevant piece of information anyway. Most people are only saying one thing: he isn't capable of riding that RCV to its full capabilities. They aren't saying that he doesn't belong in GP at all. That's a fair and objective point.

MotoGP » Suzuki struggles, eager for test, seamless ‘soon’


armin899: PaulW54: No doubt, and I really support Suzuki's effort as I believe the more teams the better. Hopefully in 2017 With KTM, Aprilia, Ducati and Suzuki(skeptical about the Japanese) they can gather the 66% required vote and knock Honda off the throne. A lots of things will change after 2017 and hopefully we'll have a level playing field. and of course i am counting hugely on Michelin because they don't have the Japanese ethic of "Only help the Japanese and kick the non-Jap"
The Michelin tire and control ECU are two things that I'm eager to see put in place simply out of curiosity. I want to see how it will affect the entire field, if at all. I still believe the top 7 or so riders will still be more or less where they are, but I wonder if the bottom half of the grid will benefit.
