MotoGP » Dall'Igna: New engine ‘first step’ for 2015 Ducati

BJR: I'd have no problem if Ducati wanted to build/race a Japanese clone. It's MotoGP not WSBK. The idea is to build the fastest bike you can within the rules and win the race.
You and I both. Like many are aware of, the problem is a fundamental design issue. Fix that, and their competitiveness will improve. Obviously the Japanese manufacturers are doing something right. MotoGP isn't the place of stubborn adherence to a cultural philosophy. MotoGP is, and should be, about winning races.

MotoGP » Yamaha wants Rossi to ‘stay to end of career’

I still remember when people were claiming that Rossi will NEVER ride for Yamaha again and that Yamaha would NEVER want him back. Fast forward to July 2014, and he has a 2 year contract extension after returning to YFR for the 2013/14 season, and Jarvis states that he wants VR to finish his career with Yamaha. Hmmmmm, so much crow has been eaten in the last couple of years.

MotoGP » Rossi, Yamaha confirm two-year deal

Codger: Tetley Crutchlow ? Don't you mean Dovi ?
I see where you're coming from, Codger, but in terms of the T3 M1 I think that Cal's 2013 achievements outweigh Dovi's 2012 results. True, Dovi is more successful on this year's Ducati, but he has a year's more experience on it than Cal has.
What are you talking about? In 2012 Cal had a year's more experience on the Yamaha, and Dovi cleaned the floor with him: Dovi: 6podiums, 4th in the championship, 218 points. Cal : 2 podiums, 7th in the championship, 188 points. In 2013 Cal had 3 podiums , 188 points and was 5th in the championship, how exactly do "Cal's 2013 achievements outweigh Dovi's 2012 results"?? There is no comparing Cal to Dovi as riders, the Ducati results only confirm the obvious.
I was wondering the same thing.

MotoGP » Rossi, Yamaha confirm two-year deal

SkyWilk: That sums it up doesn't it, one cannot even say anything even remotely critical about Rossi, that it's enough to get insulted in a public forum... I said it before, and i say it again, Rossi doesn't DESERVE this factory ride, he isn't fast enough, if it was Cal getting the podiums people would say he wasn't alien material, etc etc, and Yamaha won't win any championships with him against Marquez, or any other young hot shot.
I won't insult you, I'll just ask... why not? If it's because he's not fast enough, who is faster? (Please back this up, no hypotheticals please.)
You just tossed a piece of cheese into a box full of rats. Good luck receiving a logical answer from them.
