MotoGP » Jubilant Lorenzo in Misano masterclass


This goes to show how useless the BBC's commentary team are. I can't recall which one of the crack (apt word) team made the comment, but one of them said after qualifying that everybody else should pack up and go home. You'd think they'd have learned that a fast lap on perfect tyres with a clear track in qualifying does not necessarily dictate the race result. If it did we wouldn't bother with the race. Not that Parrish would know about fast laps in qualifying, or practice, or the race.

MotoGP » Hernandez to Pramac, Laverty gets ART?


PBM seem to have gone backwards since last year. Yonny's well out of it. TBH I think they don't have the resources to run and develop two different bikes. They'd probably do better to run one bike, but the rules say if you enter two bikes you have to run two bikes. Even so I think they have to throw everything they can behind one bike and rider for the remainder of the season and put the minimum they reasonably can behind the other. If they are serious about developing their own bike to be competitive then Laverty should stay on that bike.

WSBK » WSBK boss responds to wet weather criticism


@shamarone you'd have called time on the SBK race? In other words you'd have pissed on Melandri's bonfire. If you'd called time when the conditions first got bad then Melandri wouldn't have been the winner. And that gives the lie to Melandri's moaning. The conditions were just fine for him to win, but even when they'd (slightly) improved by the time WSS started they were too dangerous? Makes no sense at all. If the WSS race should have been postponed or cancelled then the WSB race should have been abandoned. He can't have it both ways. He just started shouting to try to look like a good guy to Italian fans. Cynical and pathetic of him really to try to improve his image out of a tragedy. Like the organizers said, if he had a problem with the conditions he should have complained at the time not hours later. I'd have had more respect for him had he put his hand up during the WSB race or said he thought it was too dangerous for the WSS riders before their race started. As it is it's just

BSB » James Ellison - Q&A


At this stage last year James had 12 points to Yonny's 7 and Laverty's 3. Laverty is in the position that Ellison was last year, on a largely new and untested bike. Hernandez has an advantage in that the team have a season with the bike behind them. Actually both have a certain advantage in that not only are the CRTs closer to the prototypes this year, but there have been more DNFs from prototype riders hence more points for the CRT boys. And yet last year Bird was talking about sacking Ellison saying he wasn't good enough. Being charitable maybe he didn't understand the reality of running a CRT bike. Hopefully James is laughing up his sleeve at PBM's results so far this year.

BSB » James Ellison - Q&A


After his season with Tech3 I felt sorry for James. I thought it was unfair that he'd been pushed out in favour of Checa when he'd signed up as sole rider. After AMA, however, I began to have my doubts. I wondered if he ever bothered reading the contracts he was signing or took any legal advice. Then when I heard about his dealings with Bird I realised that he has no business sense at all. No problem with that as such, but if he has no business sense he should employ somebody to be his business manager. Even if he only does it for a couple of weeks a year when he's signing (or not signing!) contracts I'm sure it would help his career.

WSBK » WSBK boss responds to wet weather criticism


No you can't criticise the organizers. Nor can the organizers criticise Melandri. It's not up to riders in the previous race to complain about the conditions, it was up to the riders in the WSS race to complain about conditions after the sighting lap. If they thought it was too dangerous they should have said so. As far as we know none of them did. So the WSS riders didn't think it was too dangerous to race. Races have been held in similar conditions countless times before. It was a tragic accident, nothing more nothing less. Trying to apportion blame is pointless and will achieve nothing. The problem is of course that these days (driven largely by the news media) people want somebody to blame every time somebody dies, but sometimes nobody is to blame. Accidents happen.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: A great battle until the end


@R6Ryder I don't think it's so much that he's thinking "if only I had a factory bike". He's doing what a lot of sports people do and concentrating on one perceived problem to the extent that it becomes a self fulfilling prophesy. He believes the full fuel load is his problem, so he isn't as good as others early in the race. And it's not even that he's making silly excuses, he really believes he has this problem that others don't. Silly excuses to me are when the rider knows he's talking BS, Cal doesn't. Maybe the team need to do what we once did with one of our drivers. He was totally convinced that our shocks weren't as good as other teams shocks and were causing him problems on the limit. So one day we told him we'd borrowed some shocks from another team. He knocked a second out of his lap times and placed on the podium. It was only on the sunday night we told him he'd raced on his original shocks.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: A great battle until the end


"Crutchlow feels he had a chance to challenge Valentino Rossi for the win had he not struggled with a full fuel tank in the opening stages of the race." Funny, but everybody else had a full tank at the start of the race. What this probably means is that Cal is setting the bike up to go well with a light fuel load - more of a qualifying setting really - but that being the case what he clearly needs is a setup more suited to a full tank. Besides Rossi looked like he had something in hand most of the time, he did a pretty good job of controlling the lead. So Cal can spout his ifs and buts if he wants. IF he had set the bike up to run with a full tank then maybe he wouldn't have gone so well in the latter stages. IF he'd caught up with Rossi then maybe Rossi would have found another half second. IF.... you get the picture.
