MotoGP » Stoner completes ‘very positive’ Sepang test

People reinventing history again. Stoner NEVER got new parts from the end of the first test till the new bike arrived at the first test next season. Rossi had hundreds plus many chassis, swing arms, fairings etc. The bike was never designed around Stoner. It was designed by engineers who went their own way. At one stage Stoner had to revert to the previous years suspension as the current one was rubbish and Ducati refused to produce an update. Stoner left Ducati because they went behind his back and tried to recruit others at a higher pay rate than they were giving their only world champion! They showed no loyalty at all. As for the continuing denial of his illness. So the specialists he saw who documented his illness are all liars. The videos of him getting off the bike looking like death warmed up are fake and/or he should have been given an Academy Award. He as offered a pay deal that would have made him the highest paid person in any motorsport because he was no good? Idiots!

MotoGP » Miller: I held it up on my shoulder and elbow...

Sparky62: Miller was selected on ability. There is yet to be an Australian rider who has not earned his ride.
No, Miller was/is a gamble. He has no more or less ability that A.Marquez. Marquez just chose to spend a year in the intermediate class, but he will get that Repsol bike. Mark my words.
Glad you know more than the people who spend their lifetime choosing riders and who are responsible for the millions of dollars to run a team. Nobody said he was better than Marquez and that question is yet to be answered since we have not seen them on equal bikes. That is irrelevant to whether or not he earned his MotoGP ride. Fact is he did. Fact is the experts picked him. Fact is he has had one crash in the hundreds of laps he has done on a MotoGP bike. Fact is he is doing everything he is asked by the team. Fact is they have given him three years to get his act together and that is fairly unique for a rookie.

MotoGP » Miller: I held it up on my shoulder and elbow...

Tomco: I remain totally unconvinced by Miller. Not saying he wont get there eventually but still say he should have done a season or two in Moto2. He wasnt that special in Moto1.
Moto3, not Moto1. Some people have no idea! In 2013 he was the highest finishing Honda rider in the championship when it was slower than the KTMs. In 2014 he finished 100 points ahead of the next KTM rider and was the only KTM in the top four!!! If that is not proof of his riding ability what is? The head honcho of Honda Racing picked him for the MotoGP ride. There was not extra money paid for him to do so. Miller was selected on ability. There is yet to be an Australian rider who has not earned his ride.

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Daryl Beattie - Q&A

kneedragon1962: "Interesting his comments about Gobert (such a wasted opportunity)" We had a string of them. People who had natural riding talent running out their ears, but sometimes not a whole lot of brains.
The riders you quoted are not like Gobert in any way, shape or form. He did drugs, they did not. All of them are still involved in the sport one way or another and although not Rhodes Scholars, they are probably smarter than you think you are.

F1 » Ricciardo: Vettel showed he’s human

Still waiting for anybody to point out anything within quotation marks, meaning it was what Dan said, that is boastful, disrespectful or in any way deserves criticism. Since have not bothered giving us the source of these comments they are more than likely from one of his earlier interviews where snippets have already been taken and published. Dan has been interviewed dozens of times since the end of season. Here is a challenge. Go to any of those published interviews and highlight to me where he is doing anything but answering the questions posed to him. Show me his boastful, big headed ways. Not a single person will take up this challenge because there is nothing to the accusation but rhetoric.
