MotoGP » Bridgestone: We’ll develop to the end

Codger: If they did, amakusa, Bridgestone would have to bring 50 different tyres. Practice would have to start on a Wednesday so that the riders would have a chance to choose. Scrap Qually tyres altogether, bring just 4....hard, medium, soft, and a wet. Maybe an intermediate for iffy conditions, if rain is around.
Or there could be another competing brand who could cater to the rest? If u cant cater to all, why bother about control tyres?

MotoGP » Marquez: I don’t know why I felt so good!

MM the new Stoner. Wont be long before he is judged as boring the series. He can be thankful he has a nice smile though, and the media paints him as a nice guy. Cameras will not pan on him twitching the bike for long because he will be riding alone into the sunset, generally fans dont want to watch that. And lets see how long Rosei will tolerate him snatching the apex off his leg by inches.

MotoGP » Marquez: I don’t know why I felt so good!

Motojunky: Your comments could not be further from the truth. The only comparison I see between MM and CS is they both rode the works Honda very fast. MM could win every race for the remainder of the season and I would not get bored. Why? The guy is possionate and has a happy demeanor. Go Rossi.
U cant see happy demeanour when they tuck under the lid racing hard, only passion. If ure a rider yourself, u wont get bored seeing how he squeezes every power from every inch of asphalt there is, much like Stoner did, like Schwantz did, like Rossi did in the 500cc days. U might be one of those, who enjoy watching that like i do, but thats not a case of majority.

MotoGP » Rossi: We destroyed the front tyre

The tires, as i mentioned twice previously, suits a particular set of riders. To elaborate, they favour stop-go riders. Motocross/ supermotard riders. Look at how Dovi and MM been riding (even Stoner in the past). they use diamond lines where they square off the turns, keep the bike upright most times i.e. brake late and hard, square off the turn, power out. Yamaha is burning front rubber trying to go with corner speed to compensate for its upright inferiority (braking and acceleration). This problem is amplified because of the single tyre supplier for obvious reasons that they cant cater to everyone. Rossi is capable of riding like both MM and JLo, but the Yamaha isnt. It lacks braking and acceleration power despite having almost same top speed as honda. Hence front the high pressure on the front tyres, as riders need to carry more corner speed to keep up.
