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 crash.net 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.

F1 » Ricciardo: Vettel showed he’s human


What did Dan do wrong this time? He does not arrange his interviews and he does not arrange the questions. He answers what is asked and is quoted on Crash.net and elsewhere as often as they see fit. Once again he showed respect for his former co-driver and somehow crash.net readers find this arrogant? Please show us idiots where we are getting it wrong. Show us where the ego is in the quotes here? You must have some reason for the anti DR diatribe that us lesser beings have missed.

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!


MaddMe:
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.
