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 » 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 » Marquez: I'm having fun again


armin899: I don't agree with you on that. If Jorge starts from pole with Marquez and VR behind him, the he won't be able to run away. The only time he can do that is when there are slowcoaches between him and MM/VR. Catalunya and Lemans are good examples.
You don't have to agree. It doesn't make you right though. Jorge rides better at the front. We've seen it time & time again. Yes, a bunch of grid fillers who used a soft to qualify better do add more work if Marquez or Rossi don't qualify well, but that doesn't change Jorge's strength....which also doubles as the chink in his armor. Jorge can still reel off some consistent, sweeping laps when things align for him. Also, your response has nothing to do with the initial statement that ProfX made, and that I agreed with....which was that the current bike has more stability under braking and is tailored toward Rossi's strength despite being a compromise. It is evident in Rossi's riding.

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 » Pedrosa surprised by end-of-race pace


armin899: On the top of that Jorge is the #1, has much larger salary and is Jarvis's favourite boy.
I don't know if that's the case for 2015. I know Rossi took a lower salary coming back to Yamaha, but that was 2 seasons ago. Either way, Rossi still makes more than Lorenzo overall due to endorsements, sponsors, etc. Lorenzo can't touch him on earnings. Nobody in MotoGP can.

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.

MotoGP » Podium crucial for championship, says Rossi


arthermo77: We will have to see how Jorge copes with a wet race which might just make for some interesting results. Bit of a shame Honda sorted out their problems but us Vale lovers can't have it all our own way can we!
It would seem that Honda sorted their issues, but it remains to be seen if that will be evident over a span of races. In some ways I hope that the Honda's remain upright and fast, and Lorenzo does okay in the wet........that way, if Rossi wins the WC, people won't be able to say, "...but, but....Honda wasn't up to par (as if the Yamaha was up to par and on equal terms when Marquez was running the show) and Lorenzo failed at [insert race here]".
