MotoGP » Marc VDS Honda MotoGP deal official


reinmacre: I know this going to ruffle some tail feathers but here goes. Now why exactly are we to expect that SR45 is going to be trading paint for rostrum positions any more that PE44 or SB6? Is Scott better than these guy's? If Redding was a truly a generational talent, Repsol would have make room for him(see CS27 today). True, it is great that he will be on a factory, or as close to, a factory spec Honda as one could short of the vaunted Repsol Honda.
SR45 will soon learn that a rostrum finish a factory bike does not make. To me, he's no better than Bradl or an Espargaro. He'll slot in somewhere in the lower half of the top 10, and that'll be that.

WSBK » Guintoli: This is a gamble…


TalentFan: Are you SURE about that? If MM proves to be THE factor that put the kibosh on Aprilia's season, when they expressly asked him to play for the team.... thats one hell of a lot for Aprilia to forgive and forget. Conceivably the shockwave repercussions might cost the Company millions.
Not entirely SURE, but it's less probable IMHO. Others may disagree though.

WSBK » Melandri: Win in race two is fair compensation


TalentFan: I have never knocked Hayden for his WC & I would not knock SG if he wins this one.
Totally different circumstances though. Hayden won due to the misfortune of others (not his fault). He was in the right place at the right time. Gifting wins to improve your point status is an entirely different thing altogether. It's just interesting to me how the opinions change depending on the riders involved. If this were Marquez or Rossi being handed wins, they'd be thrown to the wolves. Because it's Guinters, it's suddenly "okay".

WSBK » Guintoli: This is a gamble…


PR:
Realist: He's just not in the business of giving up all of his deserved wins.
I don't know in what business he thinks he is, but clearly the team thought otherwise. And I fully support the team's decision to maximize SG's chances for the championship. If it were MM in SG's shoes, I would think the same.
Water under the proverbial bridge at this point. In a few races nobody will even think about it.
