MotoGP » Jack Miller ‘going to be great MotoGP rider’

What is with the concentration on the 2014 season only? In 2013 he was the first Honda rider. In 2014 he was the first KTM rider and more than 100 points ahead of the next one. Have we seen Marquez and Miller on equal machinery? No we have not! What we have seen is Miller do the best of any rider with the brand he is on two years in a row. In both years he has ridden the brand beyond what any other rider has achieved. As for the ludicrous crap about money talks. For decades Australian riders have been the victims of European riders turning up to teams with less talent but more money. Even if Miller was hired because of some mythical bucket of money being offered, it would be about time that an Aussie was a beneficiary of such.

MotoGP » Jack Miller ‘going to be great MotoGP rider’

There are many people out there who know far more about MotoGP and what makes a good rider than anybody commenting on this forum. Shuhei Nakamoto is one of them and he hand picked Miller based on what he saw and what he believes is Jack's potential. Complain and whine all you want, Shuhei is responsible for how Honda's MotoGP future will look like and if he thinks it is worthwhile giving Miller a jump up to MotoGP then I trust his decades of experience and responsibilities over the armchair critics. Moto2 has not proven to be a useful indication of MotoGP potential. It is simply a slightly faster version of Moto3 but the race craft and determination are no different between the classes. What possible advantage would there be to having a rider of Miller's talent, and size, do a season or two in Moto2? Better off you give him an extended period, three years in this case, to prove himself in MotoGP. That is what the experts have decided to do.

F1 » LAST CHANCE: VOTE for your 2014 F1 Driver of the Year!

Sparky62: No way the Red Bull was the 2nd fastest car on the grid yet DR was the only one to win races apart from the Mercs. His passing and tactics were second to none and his ability to preserve tires was unmatched. His results come from skill, not the car. He was by far the best driver of the season.
Come again, the RBR the 2nd fastest car on the grid? Ummm....did I not, in plain English, say "No way the Red bull was the 2nd fastest car on the grid..." Glad you agree with me.

MotoGP » Moto3: Estrella protest against Miller, Kent rejected

So the armchair experts on are rewriting the meaning of a block pass. To qualify as a block pass the rider simply has to take the inside line, get past the rival and slow down on the racing line forcing the rival to either risk an outside pass or fall back. You DO NOT have to on the apex whilst doing the passing, only on the racing line when doing the blocking.
