MotoGP » Rossi gives thumbs-up to new chassis, swing-arm


therealDave: VR happy...I'm happy!
Looking back at his career is astonishing. Aside from his rookie year where he finished 9th, Rossi was either winning championships or was the 2nd or 3rd tier runner-up......until his dreaded Ducati years. With a decent year after returning to Yamaha, he's now back in 2nd. If this man manages to pull off a 10th title, the two wheeled world will go bananas.

MotoGP » Deficit to top 'unacceptable' says Redding


IvorBueb: This is not a race, it is a test.
Nobody said it was a race. It IS indicative of how others get on relative to Redding. One only needs to look at Crutchlow, Espargaro and Petrucci to see how Redding is under-performing while dealing with the same set of circumstances. That isn't to say that he won't adapt and improve, but initial results do evoke some thought. Hell, even Redding himself calls his results "unacceptable" and he stated explicitly that he didn't expect to be so far behind considering the fact that he now has a much better bike. If his own words don't lend credence to our analyses, then I don't know what more to tell you.

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 » Deficit to top 'unacceptable' says Redding


I wish people would stop using the new team, new bike, new parts, new this and new that as excuses for Redding. There are many a rider who are riding under the exact same circumstances that are faster than Redding (..example: Espargaro.......who is on an entirely brand-new-fresh-out-of-the-crate bike). I'm sure he will improve, but so will everybody else. I did like the way he described watching Dani ride. It was a nice visual.
