MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record


Brain: Thats all the the bops have left. trying to denigrate someones record because he hasnt switched bikes. Fact is, Rossi's best season came on a Repsol Honda that was far more dominant than todays Repsol Honda.
Exactly! If he's winning and destined for WC greatness, let's continue to talk about his behavior in M2 (as if other WC's haven't made mistakes)......or his Spanish nationality.......or....or....or. Nobody was complaining when the WC's were dominated by Americans from the late 70's until the early 90's, but now all of a sudden being "Spanish" is somehow bad/unfair because they are seemingly the most talented along with the Italians. Ride on Marquez. All these guys can do is hate because you are dominant. Remain dominant as long as physically possible because it won't last forever. Enjoy your day! Most never get to be dominant.

MotoGP » Moto2: Herrin out, Wilairot in at Caterham


@ Shamarone Yes, yes......we know that you know it all and that the Honda is the equivalent of a Tron bike. We'll just agree to disagree on this one. Data solutions and support aside, talent gets the job done. Biaggi made that Aprilia look flawless and dominating, but Melandri (a rider whom I like very much) and Guintoli, not so much. Sometimes a rider/bike combination is just that good, and MM/Stoner on the Honda is/was that good. Your anecdotal statement about other riders potentially having similar talent is valid, but I'm not going down the "what if" road. I'm dealing with what IS!

philholt101: Dani fast but not consist-ant he shouldn't be at HRC the only reason he has lasted as long as he has is PUGH I stand by my point on Crazy Joe though put him on Dani@s bike and watch him goI
This is where we disagree. Dani is extremely consistent (..which is why he has been in the top 3 nearly every season he has been in GP's, and it isn't just the bike). Dani has his seat because he's a solid, SOLID #2 rider. He's doing what is expected of him. Generally speaking, if he isn't winning, he's on the podium.

MattyMKO745: I would have agreed with your comment, but I cannot simply because fact about Scott is not true... he is as talented as Marc or Vinales, but has wrong password... Anyway about Herrin I would say that as much as I like him, it was expected that he will get sacked...
I think you meant passport, but regardless, Marquez's country of origin (and Vinales for that matter) aren't twisting the throttle on the bike. For you to discount anything MM has accomplished simply because of his nationality is just absurd. Scott is overrated, and it will take him to be on a fairly competitive bike for that fact to be beaten into the heads of those who still think he has the same chops as Marquez.

salieri: I agree with you that expectations need to be realistic and a rookie year is exactly that - so it seems a little tough on Herrin but no one said life was fair. Agree with previous comments that if the AMA series is moribund/effectively meaningless then perhaps the talent pool from the US should look elsewhere to exercise itself like BSB (possibly the toughest domestic championship around) or in wsbk supersport class. Hope it does get sorted out as there must be an untapped talent pool in the US that should be given a chance.
I think the expectations were realistic...........score some points........any points. Herrin has failed to do that.

The more that I think about it, the more that I think Herrin should have done a "Jacobson" and gone to WSS or WSBK first (..although I don't knock him for taking the M2 seat that was offered). The international level is tough, and working his way up - he's young enough - would have better set him up for GP. Jacobson has got on with the WSS Kawi, and is doing well for a rookie being 7th in the championship and running up front (more or less). The next step for PJ will be WSBK and then maybe M3/M2. Herrin should take note.

philholt101: Redding in his first year on a customer Honda is smoking the rest of them who are on the same bikes even MM respects the guy Iannone another rider on a inferior bike give him Pedrosas bike and watch crazy Joe go. You really want to engage your brain before posting son
The Honda doesn't ride itself, and while it's a gem of a bike, MM is the one getting the results. We don't see Dani running amuck at the front. We didn't see Dovi do it either. Stoner did it for a season. MM makes the difference on the equipment. P.S. Most of the riders respect each other. What did you expect him to say..."Redding sucks"? Get a grip. Even if a rider knows/believes/feels that he is better, he wouldn't be crass enough to say it publicly.
