MotoGP » Marquez: Motivation not an issue for 2015


Very funny the comments regarding Jlo's mistakes making VR look better than he is. If I am not mistaken, wins and WC invariably come down to he who makes the least mistakes?????? A rational logic would be that he who makes the least mistakes is the better performer? One could argue that the small performance difference between the Yam & Honda made MM look better than he is as he made many mistakes in the second half but could afford to due to zero mistakes in the first 10 races! One could rationally argue along those lines then, that VR only missed out on his 10th WC because of the Yam deficiency in the first half of the year????

MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP test times - Wednesday (Final)


Settle down all, talk of the opens and stats getting closer and looking at times? MM said he is not happy with the 2015 bike yet still quickest and the yam guys who are happy with the bike are right there on his tail so at this very early, non-indicative stage, all you can really say is that not much has changed. If anything, MM is looking even stronger by posting the quickest time on a bike he is not happy with! UPDATE - just read that his fastest time was on the 2014 bike. My bad!

MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP test times - Tuesday (Final)


As an aside, and a funny point of interest, 2 years ago certain Jlo fans were spouting that VR was afraid to push and should give it away. Those same posters dare not even think of Jlo being afraid to push in the wet and have even attacked any poster that mentions it.....funny! 2 years ago, MotoGP fans wouldn't have questioned that Jlo has more titles in him but now? 2 years ago, MotoGP fans were resigned to the very real possibility that it was all over for VR but now? I would suggest that 2 years is a very long time in MotoGP! Of the 2 (VR & JLO) right now, who is less likely to produce another title???? Like Burges always said...if you give Vale a bike he is happy with, he will win you races. Something you need to do to win the WC is to win races 2013 the haters said VR let Yamaha down in the constructors & Teams WC....well were are those posters now criticising Jlo?

Thanks Realist & Yearby :) As quickly as VR improved he could find himself at a loss again and likewise Jlo could be WC next year. Such is the level these guy's a riding at (thank you MM) that the wind blowing from the wrong direction can mean the difference between 1st and 4th week in and out. As an example, Jlo is better than his performance this year agreed! But is he better than 3rd out of the top 4? (objectivley speaking and thinking)?

Some valid points made already, Well done to those who went out as they give them selves a small step-up in regards to wet weather data (not sure how useful as the bikes will be quite different come the first round). Opportunity missed for those who didn't go out (yes, including Jlo). I wouldn't say Jlo is scared of the mixed/wet conditions but he is deffinatley not comfortable with them as has been seen on different occasions. My advise for Jlo is to grab a road bike and trailer during the off-season and go looking for wet weather at the European tracks. If you want another WC you are going to have to score good points in the wet and mixed conditions consistantly!

MotoGP » Moto3: Jack Miller wins, Alex Marquez champion


Looking at the photo, I can honestly say that Alex is a far better person than me! If I had bean repeatidly bombed for 3 rounds and won the WC, I would have turned to Jack and started celebrating in his face to rub it in. I would have pointed to the trophy and then to myself and said "winners are grinners and you are what a loser looks like". Quite childish, immaturte and unsportsman like....but as I said, Alex is a far better person than me.

MotoGP » Moto3: Jack Miller wins, Alex Marquez champion


No better example of how bitterness can impact your judgement.... ...reflecting on the Aragon incident in comparison to the last three rounds of Miller repeadidly dive-bombing into Marcquez, which of the riders would have a better argument for "foul play"? I'm a fan of Millers and that's why I dont want him turning into a nother Aussie Moaner. Keep your chin up Jack, let go of the bitterness and look forward to your new challenges that await.

MotoGP » Moto3: Jack Miller wins, Alex Marquez champion


Read a couple of posts on this thread regarding the Aragon race and the impact on the WC..... As someone who wathced the race also, can I suggest, Marcques attacked into the corner (perfectly leagal and not a stretch) Miller had already run a little deeper (off the dry line) Miller tried to take the dry line (which Marquez was already on) Miller touched Marcquez Miller fell off For Miller to suggest it wasn't his fault is silly but understandable from a teenager who has just missed out on a WC by 2 points! For Miller to suggest it was Marcquez'z fault is just stupid For Miller to have held onto that perceived grevance and now point to it as the sole reason for not winning the title is bitter and pointless.

Well done Marcquez! Top effort from Miller although his post race behavior leaves a lot to be desired. Very poor sportsmanship. I have no issue with his riding because he gave as good as he got even though in the last 3 races he did seem to "target" Marcquez instead of riding his own race (my opinion). Marquez WC is onto Moto2 for more learning while Miller is off to MotoGP and if he doesn't curtail his sportsmanship and attitude, the big boys will sort him out very quickly. I am disappointed as last year Jack was a great personality and sport and now this year he has developed stonersyndrome....Let your perceived grievances go Jack or you will simply get bitter and rub everyone off the wrong way.
