MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain

Insidejob: Crash says, " Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain" "Force..." Jorge says, “I think if the white flag is waved and then all MotoGP riders have two laps to enter [the pits] it would be a good option” "...option." If the conditions are becoming treacherous then it's sensible. If it's spitting then wait to see if it worsens. If there's only 3 or 4 laps to go it could be a game changer.
It's "force". He's suggesting a finite 2 lap maximum. That is a forced decision that he's saying would be a good "option" [For Dorna] to consider.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain

therealDave: Those 2 who finished in front of him have not mentioned such a move? Do they not understand the risks like Jlo does? I would suggest the other 2 are now grinning from ear to ear:)
Exactly! What Twisted fails to realize is that we can measure J.Lo up against his peers. We don't all have to be track day riders/racers (I have am and have been) to be able to perform such a measure. He's just upset because his strategy didn't work out, and it left him behind his teammate. I can guarantee that we wouldn't be having this rain day discussion if his strategy had worked to his advantage like it did the race before.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: The Honda is what I expected

I agree with Abefan. The conspiracy theories are nonsense, and he made a good point about MM jumping on the Honda the first year and breaking records, winning races and ultimately the WC. How on Earth does that correlate to less support for Dani????!! As far as Cal, he has tried to emulate this rider and that rider, and ultimately it hasn't worked for him. First it's Stoner, then it's Lorenzo, and now he speaks about emulating Marc. Just ride the damn bike Crutchlow. Everything else will fall into place (in theory).

MotoGP » Yamaha: We have two riders that can beat Marc

some1: I think the rider would beat Marquez is actually his team mate Pedrosa. But Pedrosa will not going to beat Marquez on Honda. He need to ride Ducati to make it happened. Ducati has the extra spin and punch that Pedrosa need to beat his country men. I believe Pedrosa is as good as Stoner on Ducati. While Ducati need Pedrosa to end their tyres suffering. Ducati, Pedrosa and Michelin would get them additional 5 seconds race lead. Doesn't matter if Marquez even able to touch his ears on the road, it will not cut it. Then both Yamaha men can beat Marquez. Probably, on Ducati, Pedrosa finally has a real chances to win a title similar to Carlos Checa of SBK on Ducati.
Stop! Just stop!

MotoGP » Michelin front main question for 2016

TF2: You blithely/blindly bash on about riders superiority, yet are happy to do so from a series where restriction and favouritism don't actually demand riders to win against rivals with equal opportunity. The top 4 have NO others with the support to challenge.
What auto/moto series DOESN'T have a hierarchy replete with restrictions, "favoritism"...or more accurately stated, factory top tier teams with lower run satellite and/or customer options, etc.? Name ONE. Just ONE. You are disregarding the Ducati FACTORY team (simply because they haven't performed in recent years) and the fact that HRC ran a 3 bike factory team for multiple seasons. Technically there are 6 bikes which should be included, and multiple SUPPORTED satellite factory entries that should be as well. The top riders are the top riders for a reason TF. All other things aside, that holds true. There aren't any better riders currently on the grid than Marquez, Rossi, Lorenzo and Pedrosa.

MotoGP » Suzuki will consider expanding MotoGP effort

TF2: All satellite teams do in the final analysis is fill grid spots and pack the midfield. The Factory's always keep the very best for themselves so extra Satellite teams just equals more bikes controlled and regulated on the grid, with ZERO increase in true competitors. Racing needs all teams to have the FREEDOM and the OPPORTUNITY to properly compete. Adding more Factory dependent 2nd stringers just fills track space. Sorry but that's the 100% true bottom line.
Have you provided your insights to the F1, WRC, BSB, etc. camps as well? :)

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories

Duds123: Remember Hayden on the Repsol Honda ran with Pedrosa and even won the title against Dani. Now suddenly you have him running behind even Bradley and others in 10th spot!
I sure do. I also remember that he had two seasons following that WC win that resulted in him losing his seat because he was 6th & 8th on a factory HRC bike.....while Pedrosa was 3rd both years (..and 2nd when Nicky won the WC in 2006). People will say it was "developed for Pedrosa", etc. etc....but I just see it as significantly declining results to go from a lucky, but well deserved 1st to 6th and 8th.
