MotoGP » Stoner: Carbon frame Ducati ‘best bike’ in 2009

Stoner did manage to win on that bike on his return, and did it more than once. That was no fluke. And with all the other riders' struggle on it, it was not easy either. Stoner is different in many ways, he is not just a rider, he is able to spanner his own personal bike. Whilst riding is clearly his natural talent, engineering is his interest. Remember when Nakamoto said he is a genius? This was what he probably meant. He is good on and off the bike. Ducati are lucky to have him as test rider. But unfortunately, you need a rider who can ride like him on the bike he develops. Because he develops it the way he rides it.

MotoGP » Rossi: I think Stoner wants to race

Casey Stoner is no fool. He knows very well his comeback will have him up to speed. He knows full well people will welcome back. He also knows full well if he starts to race and ruffle the leathers of Rossi, JLo, MM etc the same negativities that drove him away will be back to haunt him. He has no time for that, he would rather be a happy test rider then a sorry scapegoat because any of the rider in contention didnt get to be a wc. Just look at MM for last year's reference.

MotoGP » Rossi, Marquez: 2016 ECU ‘step back in time’

VonS: Nah, I don't think he likey #46 ! (Sorry amakusa ! :))
Over the years I have been lucky to be at trackside watching motogp stars in action. VR, KRJR, Hayden to name a few. I have learnt to appreciate all of them, hugely talented riders irrespective of grid position. Things they do on 2 wheels, we simply cant do. But nobody is perfect be it on or off track. i dont support a particular rider, only passionate about racing as it is.

MotoGP » Rossi, Marquez: 2016 ECU ‘step back in time’

Codger: amakusa.......Freudian slip to leave Rossi's name out of your list ? :) Early days yet, impossible to predict what will happen. Today, if conditions are the same as yesterday, we might see a few more riders trying to set fast times, which might well change the order.
I knew some would spot that. Rossi is no longer fast, he no longer sets record laptimes. But make no mistake, he is extremely competitive. Its his competitiveness that drives him to the front. In any case, I have said the same 4 will be at the front. Thats JLo, MM, DP, VR.

MotoGP » Rossi, Marquez: 2016 ECU ‘step back in time’

powertripper: after the nonsense that was the 2015 Year of the Spanish MotoGP, let's do next year right: old school 500cc two strokes with throttle position sensors called "wrists"....then we'll see if Lorenzo and Marquez can also win on someone else we know...hahahahaha
Actually 500 2 stroke will bring everyone to the same level of performance as the tech is maxed out, no one will be able to have a tech advantage no matter how much money they spend. But MM and JLo will still be fast on them, they do alot of MX (yes JLo is a motocrosser too) which is basically raw throttle-brake-clutch riding.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I was better than Rossi in everything

MotoGp, really, will be won by either factory Yamaha or factory Honda. There is nothing outright special in being crowned a MotoGp champion, for its a race of mainly 4 riders. MM could ride from last to 5th, VR to 4th... Such is the lack of competition. If JLo feels he is better than the best, go to WSBK and win there. That will make him special even more. There is no point winning the championship over and over again in a 4-rider championship
