MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


Duds123: Let's take Marquez as an example, I don't think he would be as dominant or even close if he was on say Bradl's bike. Agree he would possibly be quicker than Bradl but never bagging 13 wins. How much quicker than Bradl? Mm mm! Over say a 22 lap race would he pull 12 seconds on Bradl? I don't think so. Remember these guys abilities exceed their machineries. Not like us mere mortals that never reach our bikes potential with our limited capabilities. All my opinion only. Enjoy!
I disagree. I think MM could win on Bradl's bike.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks


therealDave: Time always reveals the truth.....VR is better than Jlo and the only one scared of that is Jlo (along with being scared of rain, tyres and mosquito's).
...and let's not forget fitness. Objectively speaking..... he can't claim that his fitness was off when the dude was constantly posting workout videos on his Instagram (..jump roping, mountain climbers, this & that) during the season. He was obviously fit, but maybe just less fit than the others (..mentally or otherwise).

Brain:
NineTimes: @ brain Not much of brait i see... Yes, for a 36 YO 2nd and beating the younger double world champion in considered "Top" performance. Now i woul like to see JL at 36. I don't think if jorge can keep up for another 3,4 years.
Not sure what a brait is, but im sure its complimentary. Rossi was top Yamaha, how is that?
It's funny how people slate Rossi's #2, but didn't slate Lorenzo's #2 in 2013. All of a sudden now being the top Yamaha "doesn't matter", or is less critical when it comes to hierarchy.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks


Brain: His style is his style. He rides the RCV just like he rode his Moto2 bike [ sideways, on one wheel , tank slapping, ass swerving ] that had zero rider aids, which leads me to believe that he is less dependent on electronics than the other riders. He has absolutely shattered the mindset that in todays electronic aided machines, you have to ride inch perfect wheels in line laps to be fast
To add to this, HRC allowed him to ride the bike the way he wanted to (even if that meant sideways action) if it meant that he could go faster. The "wheels inline" style doesn't work for him. Wasn't there another rider who tried the inline style, but it didn't work for them, so they had to ask Yamaha or HRC to allow them to ride like in Moto2? I think it was Marquez, but it might have been Pol Espargaro. Does anybody remember?

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


Duds123: Realist I think you are underestimating Bradl bud. Fact is on an off day Marquiz also battled to run at the front. Ii think he is the quickest amongst the lot but his abilities are greater than Bradl's bike will allow him to achieve what he does on the Repsol bike.
I'm not underestimating him, but I don't think he is the quality of rider that Marquez is. I think we can all agree on that. Just because SB can't doesn't mean that MM isn't capable. Marquez doesn't have many "off days", so even trying to use that as an argument is just silly. He's at the front almost all of the time. Bradl has been at the front once. Aside from the data solutions, Bradl's bike is more or less just like Marquez's and Pedrosas. We can agree to disagree on the merit of their skills (which I don't see how anybody could argue in favor of Bradl), but let's not sit here and act like Bradl didn't have prime kit.

MotoGP » Smith tops MotoGP falls list


TF2: ..... Rossi's experience shows that the factory team rides the top 4 have enhances their personal performances. So it may (MAY) be that the top 4 are not be as superior to the rest of the field as you believe.
Yes and no. The Ducati is an anomaly of a bike that doesn't turn and that didn't bode wheel with VR's style of riding. When only one rider was able to ride that bike with any degree of success, you know it's an equipment issue.
