MotoGP » Yamaha: Each day reduces chance of Lorenzo staying


Sete: Yamaha are in deep trouble if Jorge moves to Ducati. Jorge is a far better rider than either Dovi or Iannone. Right now we have both Ducati's up the sharp end, it can only get better with Jorge. Add Marquez into the mix and now explain to me how can Yamaha win a championship? Oh, I know, they all fall off and it gets gifted.
Assumptions. Likely assumptions........but assumptions nonetheless. He could go over to Ducati and dislike the way it rides or be unable to use his 250cc corner speed style as effectively as he can on the Yamaha. Chances are that he'll still be strong on the Ducati because the bike itself is significantly improved since 2015, but it may not be a runaway success like many purport. It all remains to be seen.

MotoGP » Mystery power fault for Redding, unhappy with Miller


TheRav3n: I can get SR frustrations with Jack Miller, but hey it's racing and if you can pass a rider you should it's called racing. The there's the crashing side of Miller but he'll learn eventually. So mostly whining from SR...
I more or less agree with this. Miller had a reason to fight: points! For Scott to say that Miller was fighting for no reason sounds really silly.

MotoGP » Marquez out to defend perfect record in USA


Garcia: Yeah I notice Rossi doesn't look well. He looked bitter and tense on the podium and in the post race conference was angry and wouldn't stop fidgeting. also in qatar the whole unnecessary drama he started again about Lorenzo on the racing line, it's like his nerves are on edge and he's about to explode again at any moment the question is when.
Funny that you took that from Rossi's countenance. I didn't get that impression at all. You are reading way too deeply into things. He didn't look bitter or tense, nor did he look like he was on edge. He merely looked about as equally unaffected about Marquez as Marquez did about him. Neither of them paid the other any attention.

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'eager to recover some points'


Yearby23: Rossi didn't have the balls either, he knew there'd be loads of money and marketability and that if it went sour that Yamaha would take him back in a heartbeat. If Lorenzo does go to Ducati it would be a ballsy move, because it's not guaranteed Yamaha would take him back.
This is a load of nonsense man. When Rossi left Yamaha, it wasn't on good terms, so insinuating that he knew it would be a walk in the park to just roll back to Yamaha is absurd. The Armstrong analogy doesn't fit at all either. You are right about one thing however, Lorenzo winning on the current Duc will not give him parity to Rossi in the sense that the GP from 2011/2012 is not the same GP from 2015/2016. The current bike actually turns....using the front. :) I'd like to see him ride the bike Rossi rode. I am pretty confident that Lorenzo could win races on the current Duc. P.S. Who discredits Stoner and Lorenzo's wins?

MotoGP » Rossi aiming for Austin repeat


owlockey: Very surprising for Rossi to say that he isn't strong in the last laps of the race, one of Rossi strongest assets is his late race pace on worn/wearing tyres. Bit scary to hear
You did catch his specificity right? He said they need to improve the bike "on the current tires". The Michelin's are an unknown quantity.

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'eager to recover some points'


MCN along with other outlets are reporting that the Ducati deal is done. This is exciting stuff. Quote from Jalopnik... "There are now several rumors that the deal has already been signed, and MCN.com is reporting that they too can confirm a deal is done. They’re reporting the deal will be announced in a few weeks when GP returns to Jerez." w w w.motorcyclenews.com/sport/motogp/2016/april/lorenzo-to-make-ducati-switch/
