MotoGP » Laverty confirms ART switch

So you're saing Laverty is better than Marquez? Or at least as good as Marquez? If not what's the point of your second two paragraphs? I don't want to take anything away from Laverty, but Marquez is an exceptional talent (not that I'm saying he's best in the world) whereas Laverty just doesn't have the wins to back up what you seem to be saying. A single British Supersport's title in well over a decade of competition does nothing to suggest he could be among the MotoGP elite no matter what he rides.

MotoGP » Race becomes a test session for Smith

@Nobrien. You oversimplify everything in order to try to make it look like (a) you're right (b) you're intelligent and (c) you know something about racing. My point was clearly too subtly complex for you to comprehend. It was not whether Smith is better than Crutchlow. It was that there were people out there calling Cal a failure on his first season, and look where he is now. Some even argued that his 12th place was undeserved, given that his fourth in the final race was something of a freak based largely on the number of riders who didn't take part or failed to finish. However I don't agree with that since he only jumped over Alvaro to take twelfth and Alvaro didn't deserve to finish that race. My point is that you can't dismiss a rider based on a season's performances. Some people were trying to dismiss Rossi half way through his first season in 500s.

MotoGP » 'Details' for Dovizioso, 'information' for Hayden

Ducati will never admit that the 'L4' engine layout is the major problem with that bike. The engine is just too long to move about between the wheels to get the correct weight distribution, as such they are stuck with a handling problem that won't go away. The new parts they need boil down to a new engine, a more traditional V4 would do it without too much work. The bottom end being easier to rework than the top. I'm sure they know this, but find it hard to admit that they are wrong. I really don't think there is anything significant wrong with the rest of the bike, which is why they can't come up with new parts to solve the problem. They see the L4 as their USP, but what's the point in a USP if it's costing you races?

MotoGP » Jubilant Lorenzo in Misano masterclass

I don't think Marquez stayed out of A&E because of the bike, he did it because he can react to a sliding bike in the way few can. Bear in mind that the electronics package can't have kept him on when he lost the front, that's down to the rider alone. Oddly enough it's the front end that has caught out a lot of riders in their first season in the premier class, not the extra power. Look back at Rossi's first season, it took him ages to get to the stage where he wasn't losing the front regularly. The power didn't seem to phase him at all. Had he sorted himself out under braking more quickly he'd have taken the title that first year, but he just couldn't do it. Marquez is a very unusual rider in that respect.

MotoGP » Grip issues costing Pedrosa 'chance to win races'

@talentfan mid corner speed is not the way to get fast laps or win races. Exit speed is the killer for fast laps, a 1km/h advantage on the exit lasts all the way down the next straight. A 1km/h advantage mid corner that only lasts until the exit is worth next to nothing, unless you can use it to make a block pass, unlikely if your opponent is faster on the exit. And as to winning races, that 1km/h advantage on the exit will put you in a place where you can pass your opponent on the brakes. IOW Marquez is the better rider of the two. And BTW a mid corner speed advantage would tend to argue against Dani's claim of poor edge grip.

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'paying for mistakes,' vows to keep battling

Big of Jorge to admit that it's his mistakes that have, in all probability, cost him the championship. Too many riders blame bikes, tyres and gawd know's what else even the marshals, bur Jorge is refreshingly honest. Be nice to see the same level of honesty from others. I think Marquez is probably aware that he wouldn't be in the comfortable position he is now was it not for Lorenzo's crashes. Certainly bodes well for a close battle next year, with Pedrosa a lonely third.

MotoGP » Grip issues costing Pedrosa 'chance to win races'

Same tyres and bike as Marquez and a lot more experience on the bike than Marquez? No so sure it's the tyres or the bike that are at fault here Dani. Maybe Lorenzo won't retain the title this year. Even if he wins every race he's really relying on Dani to up his game and push Marquez down to third a few times to stand a chance. However it's looking increasingly likely that Dani will never be champion. The Honda is clearly the best bike out there and Dani can't win races. I doubt next year will be any different. I suspect he's going to go down in history as one of the premier class' nearly men along with the likes of Mamola.
