MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on


Shireling: Puts things into perspective, doesn't it? Either Rossi isn't as invincible or Pedrosa isn't so bad. If your excuse is that this was a Honda track, then why even bother to race? give max points to Honda to to begin with and same goes for all the other tracks. Give credit where credit is due, Pedrosa was superb this time.
Pedrosa is an awesome rider, and only the trolls speak pejoratively of him. Legitimate fans recognize his brilliance. Nobody ever said Rossi was invincible. Racers win some, and they lose some, but let's not be myopic here.....some tracks are traditionally better for the Yamaha and others for the Honda, but that doesn't necessarily mean that victory is guaranteed. Anything can happen in racing. It's no different than saying that Austin is a "Honda track" ...because at the moment it is.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on


Guna4699: They say Dani beat vale because it was Honda and Sachsenring combo playing into the hands of Dani.
Just because it has "traditionally" been a track that Honda goes well on, and has been the victor for the past 6 years doesn't mean that Dani didn't ride well and deserve 2nd place. Rossi hasn't won there since 2009. Lorenzo has never won there. I don't understand why some of you are so up-in-arms about the mention of it being a Honda track. People tout which tracks favor the Yamaha on a regular basis. Hell, even the riders will say things like, "..the Yamaha typically goes well at [insert track here]". Relax!

MotoGP » Marquez: I'm having fun again


Husky93: I think what they are saying is a load of jealous crap.
I do too unless there's something to back up the statement. The Honda of Marquez was strong here, as it has been since he entered the class (and ruled the lower class). Marquez used the hard option that was available to everybody. The Yamaha boys just chose the asymetrical.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I regret not trying a shorter bike


VKal: JL used the 2015 medium (softer) compound tyres in Mugello, which is his favourite. I think, if the tyres were developed for 2015, then they should be allowed for all races this year. the odd ones for specific tracks should be an add-on to current standard tyres, not replacement. what's the point in developing 2015 tyres and then use 2014 ones like in Assen? didn't they learn stuff and improve the current tyres. aren't the latest and the greatest (except for Honda chassis) supposed to be better?
Come on man. Use a little bit of common sense. Every track requires a different tire depending on conditions. There really isn't a "favorite" tire. Bridgestone and the riders have been doing this long enough to know what they need at a given venue (hence the asymetrical in Germany and Australia).

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I regret not trying a shorter bike


Kirun: are you sure that the cause...? i think why JL lose his strength because BS introduce new tyre construction since Assen... this new tyre more hardened on the edge so cannot be used for high speed cornering...
The chassis helped Rossi with agility and corner entry, but that isn't the entirety of it. He found some set-up breakthroughs at the test. Why do you guys have to make more out something than is necessary? Lorenzo hasn't really been strong at this track historically. He knows it.....he said it.......yet you are blaming tires. There is no explanation needed. The track just doesn't bode well with his style, hence why he has never won here. Sachsenring isn't a high speed cornering track and it's really short.

MotoGP » Bradley Smith ‘shows another dimension’


SmokinHaddock: Top satellite, joint 5th in the championship and 7 to 2 against his factory contracted team mate. He is going to make Herve's decision a much easier one this time around.
If the rumor is true, Pol might be on Redding's factory RCV next season. I kinda hope it is too. I love silly season chatter. Yamaha has the ultimate say over Pol's seat should he remain at T3.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on


Shireling: the fact still remains, Rossi is the current leader, he has been blazing hot all season and he had a go at Pedrosa, he gave it everything yet Pedrosa didn't crack. To say that this is a Honda track is too a simplistic view of things, in my opinion, seeing how the race unfolded.
It's not simplistic in the sense that all credit is going solely to the bike. You're just over-thinking the discussion. It's a Honda track PLUS the two Honda riders had the measure in terms of pace. It's that simple. Neither Yamaha rider could really run with them.
