MotoGP » Stefan Bradl: Right tyres, 'wrong' bike

Noriben: @JimmyTheRealOne I think Firefly is talking about the whole package including all the personnel working for the team, not the bike alone. In other words Tech3 as a team is more competitive than LCR.
Just out of curiosity, what do you base that statement on? It's a genuine question, not a jab. I think T3 has achieved better results overall, but that's attributable to the riders that have been on T3 bikes. I think the LCR bike is more than capable, but Bradl is missing that small percentage to put it there. I like Bradl. I hope he gets another year on the bike.

MotoGP » Marquez: Strategy was to copy Dani and Valentino

paul joiner: Jorge stringing together 9 wins in a row?
2010 - 9 wins, but not in row.
That’s’ right Jorge has only ever won 3 in a row, on three occasions. Only 5 more times has he won back to back races. Stoner is similar in only having won 3 in a row, four times (and back to back five further times) Now don't forget Marc did 4 in a row in 2013, beating the above two in his rookie year! And, one would expect, very soon will match them for world titles and overtake them in race wins! In the modern era (post Mike the Bike, Ago etc) only Doohan (10) and Rossi (7) could ever put such runs of wins together (but not from the first race), and now, of course, Marc! I love a bit of history in the making!
You and I both. Marquez will also be one of the few to string together back-to-back titles too.

MotoGP » Marquez: Strategy was to copy Dani and Valentino

Brain: Casey's presence is what ended Rossi's dominance.
You give him too much credit. Rossi still went on to win 2 more WC's after Stoner appeared. I think both Stoner and Lorenzo tempered that dominance to point, but statistically Rossi is still one of the most dominant riders ever. Marquez will surely eclipse anything that Stoner and Lorenzo have ever achieved, and he may even reach Rossi's career achievements. History in the making!

MotoGP » Rossi: There was something wrong

77dave77: My earlier comment was as much to do with the choice of title and subject of the threads on this forum !! ANY negative comments from CS were highlighted , same more recently with Cal and it is the Rossi lovers who seem to delight in that ! The situation seems to have changed now !................... I picture C Stoner and J burgess sat in a boat with plenty of fish and beer talking to one another about Rossi only winning 1 race in the last 3 seasons and none in this one so far , will he ever win again ?..... and they are probably both very happy indeed !!
I think Rossi is the one laughing at Stoner. Raced longer (and still racing), more titles, infinitely more money, more fans and without the reputation of being a cry baby.
