MotoGP » Marquez: New Honda needs change of direction


TrueFan: Gibenau, Stoner just to name two. Stoner was a result of his famous ambition / talent equation problem - basically an attempted pass that was doomed all the way, but Gibenau was a case of determination to make good on his Qatar threat/promise and bordered on intentional impact...but fanbois call it "racecraft". And I could add Gibenau taking out Capirossi, and costing him a WC, or Pedro taking out Hayden in another "overly ambitious" pass up the inside. They've practically all done it. Rossi is just better at repackaging it for the cameras at the press conference.
I wouldn't consider the Stoner collision a "critical point" by any means.

MotoGP » Deficit to top 'unacceptable' says Redding


MattyMKO745: For someone calling himself Realist, you are not that bright... he got new crew chief for 2015, who was already working with Suzuki and knows the bike... his previous chief, Matthew Casey went to Aspar to work with Nicky Hayden
You're missing my point. The bike, regardless of testing, is the most unpredictable of all of the bikes on the grid. It's an unknown factor. It's nonsense to suggest that Aleix is somehow in a better position than Redding, the guy on a Factory Honda.........with loads of precedent and data available.

MotoGP » Espargaro sets fastest ever Suzuki lap


TF2: Petrucci and A.Espagaro are just proving what has been true for ages. Which is that fans are praising the front runners to the heavens, and dismissing the rest as grid-fillers, ignoring the fact that it is the bikes and electronics that actually dictate a great deal of the outcome.
Not so fast there TalentFan. Nobody has really written AE off. From the time he was on a CRT bike, fans have felt that he had the chops. He didn't do so well during his first venture in MotoGP (nor any of his prior seasons), but going back to a lower class, honing his skillset and then returning to GP has proven beneficial for him. Fans praise the front runners because........drum roll please..........they have all proven themselves time & time again over a long period of time. One in particular who rode bikes WITHOUT electronic aids and relished in the bucking bronco nature of the 500cc's.

MotoGP » Deficit to top 'unacceptable' says Redding


MattyMKO745: Why does anyone who set Cal, Danilo or even Aleix as an example to Scott seem to forget that they have crew chiefs who have a ton of experience with the bike their rider is riding... and this is something Scott doesn't have at the moment... so that time deficit at the moment is completly acceptable, it's not the end of the world... even his team said they will be better next time in Sepang, so why all of you haters don't wait at least to the end of both Sepang tests and judge then??
WHAT? Aleix's crew chief has "tons of experience" setting up a brand new Suzuki? Are you even thinking before you post?

MotoGP » Deficit to top 'unacceptable' says Redding


papcicles: Yes, these are the realities, and Redding will know this better than anyone. Great racer and a solid-impressive first season, but not showing to be exceptional - which is exactly the job he needed to do. Next season is going to be more competitive, so podiums and even top sixes harder to come by. Expectations that he will be appearing regularly at the front are probably unfair. Alternatively, he could be sandbagging...hoping to enjoy the element of surprise come the season start.
Your final point would be something I could latch onto if it weren't for the fact that we know he has a huge ego, and he thinks that he is better than he actually is (..a'la Crutchlow). If he could have pulled out some fast laps, he would've.

MotoGP » Marquez: New Honda needs change of direction


MotoMarc: As Marquez is happy with the 2014 bike but likes some attributes from the 15 I'm sure Honda will make whatever changes they can to the '15 or modify the '14 bike into the bike that makes him happy even at the expense of his teammates comfort on his bike. No way would they make Marquez ride a bike he's not 100% comfortable with. So for those that think this is a positive for Yamaha think again.
Why does it have to be at Pedrosa's expense? They don't necessarily have to run the same equipment any more than the Yamaha guys have to run the same equipment.
