MotoGP » Espargaro: Looks like anything goes on last corner...


ReaFan: and whys that? because rossi still leaned on him, if it was the previous lap, Rossi would have picked the bike up and it would have been a good block pass. dont speak to me like i'm dumb if you're not going to think about it
Rossi was ahead. The problem is that you are wrong, maybe not dumb, but you're wrong nonetheless. You can't call what Marquez did a "block pass". He wasn't ahead to "block" anything. If you've watched racing long enough, you should know what a block pass looks like, and Marquez's attempt in Assen was nothing close to it.

MotoGP » Espargaro: Looks like anything goes on last corner...


Agreed with MotoMarc. The assertion that Rossi "planned" to take the kitty litter route is a bit far fetched. Nobody wants to be in the kitty litter. Was he prepared for the possibility that he'd be forced wide? Most likely (hence why he immediately wheelied into the litter to keep the front end from burying itself). He is smart and cunning. He has been racing for 20 years and has experienced every situation there is to experience in GP. He knows that Marquez is predictably unpredictable, and that Marquez would try "something" in that last corner. It is impossible to know exactly what Marquez would do. Rossi isn't a clairvoyant, and he doesn't have a crystal ball in his helmet. He literally reacted the best he could given the situation, and he has enough experience to think on the fly (which means that he doesn't really think at all.......kinda like how a martial artist doesn't really have to think when attacking/defending/parrying).

MotoGP » Broken seat ruins Dovizioso’s challenge


KnowNothing: Duc looked set to make a formidable challenge in the beginning of the season, and it has been slipping away incrementally. I wonder if Gigi is experiencing these fit and finish issues as well. From what I gather, millimeters matter in GP, it must be hard to develop a bike properly if you can't even get the bolts to square up.
The Ducati has been on the podium 5 out of 8 races, and just narrowly missing out on a podium a handful of times. The Ducati's are 3rd/5th in the championship at the moment. Sure, they aren't as strong as the Yamaha's, but they seem to be equally as strong as the current Honda. Coming from the GP of Rossi, that's a marked improvement.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


vkoptchev: Where is the helicopter shot that proves "at every stage Rossi was ahead"? Anywhere I look Marquez appears to make a successful block pass beating Rossi to the apex.
You have no idea what a block pass is. He would have had to be in front of Rossi to "block" him. Watch Melandri ride the Yamaha and BMW. He was the king of the block pass in WSBK. That should enlighten you.

MotoGP » Smith: Seventh is difficult to swallow


50thR1: On the difference in talent? Pol is a Moto2 Champ. Smith won 2 races (wc) in his life.
Can't really argue with this statement. In less races, Pol has amassed five times the wins, double the podiums, more than double the poles and three times as many fastest laps.....not to mention a world championship. In his rookie year he outpaced the guy who had a year of extra experience on the bike. That says something.....and that was with twice as many crashes as Smith had.

MotoGP » Smith: Seventh is difficult to swallow


Noriben:
Nas: He's been finishing in 5th quite regularly and capitilizing on the factory teams mishaps. he had an off day but still brought it home seventh, no reason to be hating on the guy.
No offfence, but no one with the sense would claim only 2 occasionsout of 8 as 'quite regularly'.
Agreed! It wouldn't surprise me if Pol still edges Smith out in the final standings come race 18.
