MotoGP » Ducati decision looming for Crutchlow, Dovizioso


AussieNSW: @Realist We all heard from rossi what he was going to do after stoner on the Duc. (based on comments made by him) and we all know how that panned out,the same as Dovi and Crutch.I think its a bit unfair to bag these two guys out and leave your hero out when his achivements were not much different.
I haven't left him out. It's just that the Rossi/Stoner/JB thing is 3 seasons old already and we've hashed that out ad nauseum. The Dovi/Crutchlow situation is what's current news. FWIW, Rossi did only an average job on the Ducati, but Dovi and Crutchlow aren't even managing average (especially Crutchlow). Dovi didn't even podium his first year at all.

MotoGP » Ducati decision looming for Crutchlow, Dovizioso


Conrice: If Pedro takes Honda up on their new contract (huge pay cut), JLo will probably stay at Yamaha. Gigi will probably convince Dovi and Andrea to stay at Ducati, it'll be a totally italian team. Suzuki then almost has to go after Cal. Who else would they get? Bradl? Would they want Bautista again? I wouldn't think so. So Cal almost becomes the most viable option.
I think both Cal and Andrea thought they were going to hop on the Ducati and prove something that Rossi couldn't (..based on comments made by both of them). Well we all saw how that panned out. Andrea didn't podium at all last season and got lucky once this season. Cal can't even stay on the bike. Double nightmare!

MotoGP » Ducati decision looming for Crutchlow, Dovizioso


Conrice: If you think that a factory who hasn't raced in GP in 3 years is a shoe-in to be better than Ducati, you're nuts.
I can understand your point. It has merit......but, I don't really think Suzuki will fare any worse than Ducati. In fact, I'd reckon that with the right rider, they will be right there with the Ducati. To me, that's an accomplishment after the hiatus, especially if Suzuki is regularly in the top 10 and ahead of a factory Ducati or two.

Conrice:
Realist: Really? Is that a serious question Conrice? The only bike that DOESN'T turn is the Ducati. Even the MV Agusta in WSBK can turn, nice & tight too.
VERY serious question. There's a HUGE difference between the handling at a test riders pace, and the pace of a GP race. Considering the LACK of competitiveness last time Suzuki had a GP effort, it's as big of a gamble as staying at Ducati is. I seem to remember Capirossi and Bautista having quite a few spills.
I don't know that I'd consider RdP or Laverty "test riders". This isn't Michele Pirro we're talking about. RdP is a GP rider in all aspects. Looking at the current Suzuki bike in development, turning isn't one of its issues. I think I'd take the unknown quantity versus the known one (date the girl who you think might have crabs or the one you KNOW has crabs...bad analogy - and I was being facetious - but you get my point).

MotoGP » High kerbs force Marquez to adapt riding style


AussieNSW: @Realist I have said many times MM is a huge talent and he also has a pefect bike and I stand by my comments nothing to do with hate,I think mate you should seriously consider following another sport,because some of your posts on here recently are starting to get very weird.
At what point did I mention YOU specifically? Defensive much? About the only people who should seriously consider following another sport are Prof X and Talent Fan. I LIKE the spectacle!

MotoGP » Rossi ‘very proud’ of Moto3 team, Fenati ‘unbelievable’


Indianbear:
Realist:
Jakel: Fenati seems to be selected as the next Dorna poster boy. Must be Ezpeleta's nephew or something. Fits with Dorna's policy of Italian or Spanish........just not Brittish or Aussie. I predict a red carpet of favourable decision for Fenati. Like last lap bumping without penalty points.
Stop this nonsense.
truth hurt does it
No, but senselessness does.
