MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez could spend his career at Honda


Marc Marquez could stay at Honda all his racing life thats for sure. Why change? He is on the best bike with the best budget and best back-up. Only reason I can see him jumping ship is for a new and fresh motivation, or like in Rossi's case, he no longer feels valued. The kid is a freak, not an alien as suggested by Jezza and Toby on Eurosport / BT Sport, he is a super alien!! So quick, so intelligent and yet still so young. We are witnessing history people, so enjoy each race he is on :) On a side note: Comparison to Rossi. We can't say yet who is better until Marc has been in the sport for the same length of time. If 12-13 years from now (2026) Marquez is still in the premiere class fighting for podiums, then he can be held in the same regard as VR46. I can see Marc doing it, but Lorenzo won't nor will anyone else :)

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Open class has too much advantage


Well qualifying is over now. Top 3 places filled with 1 factory and 2 satelite bikes. Im quite suprised given the pre-season tests and #41 performance in the practise sessions. Its a shame he binned it twice when it really mattered, he would of been right in the hunt for pole position :( This season has a feel of hare and tortoise. Open class is quick and fast, with soft tyres which may not last race distance. Factory / satelite are slightly slower, with less fuel and harder tyre options. Will be interesting to see how it plays out. May the best rider / bike win :)

MotoGP » Rossi: Espargaro is the race favourite in Qatar


I agree with DrBilly. Its good that regulation changes have mixed up the field, but this is looking a little silly. A factory bike should win every race, or at the very least in contention. I'm not taking anything away from Alexis, he has rode well at Qatar, and all events in 2013 on the CRT. Infact I think the lad is possibly the standout rider over the last 18 months. And that includes Marc Marquez :)

MotoGP » Lorenzo: It feels like no traction control


@ TalentFan - Playstation generation Im afraid :( If I was head of Dorna / FIM /FIA there would be no aids at all. Period, Full Stop. Let the rider / driver be in full control. I find it mad that kids go through the junior ranks (on bikes and in cars) learning throttle control, polar moments, left foot braking, candense braking, reverse steering and all manner of other techniques. Only for them to get to the higher reaches of the sport, and find that they need a masters degree in computer tech to work the bloody machines!! Some of the best racing Ive seen has been old cars and bikes. Why? Because the operator was in full control and not a computer...rant over.

You do realise they could be ridden without TC....unless the bikes had waaaay less power. It's got to a stage where they need at least some TC
I understand what you are saying. But electronics are taking over too much. The old 500cc machines had slightly

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi revved up for 19th season


Stellar: 19th season at the pinnacle of racing, just let that sink in. He's seen so much success and then the criticism yet he's as excited as anyone about the season opener and further seasons. I just wish him a healthy season, his race pace at Phillip Island was impressive so was his Sepang work. I just hope he can start better in the races, if he can hang with the top 3 near the end we might see some great battles. Go Rossi!
I couldn't of put it better myself :) If the others are still racing in their 19th season, and still competitive then they can be held in equal esteem with the legend that is VR46. All the best to all the riders and looking forward to a close, fast, competitive, thrilling and awesome season in 2014 :)

MotoGP » Lorenzo: It's impossible to be competitive


I recon JLo is just frustrated at the moment. He has been way faster than VR46 all last season, except for a couple of races. Now he is the team leader for a second year, and off the pace in most of the pre-season tests. Up until now he has been level with, or infront of the field. Now he is behind, it will show his true ability, a champion will shine through and I'm sure he will. I don't like him but I have to admit it, he is an epic motorcycle rider :)
