MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks

One final parting note, To the poster who earlier in the year stated that Jlo would outscore VR in the second half....correct you were. Is that a bragging right? 12 points was the margin Jlo outscored VR by in the second half....the difference between 1st & 4th in one single race! Now few would deny that Jlo rode an awsome second half of the year and only managed a one race diff of 11st to 4th. So then, VR must have road an awsome second half as well hey? PS, you were wrong on the second part of your prediction which was that Jlo would finish second in the WC. Which is the bigger bragging right? 2nd in WC or outscoring the 2nd best by 12 points over 8 races to finish as 3rd best WC?

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks

"It's funny how people slate Rossi's #2, but didn't slate Lorenzo's #2 in 2013. All of a sudden now being the top Yamaha "doesn't matter", or is less critical when it comes to hierarchy." Top comment Realist.... When VR doesn't win, many of the posters here jump up and down to point to the fact he was "given a lesson", or "badly beaten" or "stoners mum would have done better" or "Jlo ownes him" etc etc. Prior to 2011 and since the end of 2013, you don't see many such comments posted. But dare to say the same about Jlo (and previously stoner) and a lot of posters feathers get ruffled, don't they! I said consistantly during 2012 at the hight of VR hate posts, that what goes around comes around and that all the bull statements about VR would one day be aptly applied to the others....well, the time has arrived so just suck it up or stop viewing this (and many other) sites.

Also, funny that many Jlo fangirls say he still better than MM it's just that MM takes more risks. Why do I find this funny? Because in 2008-2009 when Jlo hit the seen and the VR haters would say VR is scared of Jlo as a team mate etc....who mentioned that VR is still better its just Jlo took more risks? NO ONE! Why is this "risk taking" only an issue now? Oh right, because Jlo isn't dominating on a tailored bike with tyres (in hyndsight) that suited perfectly his style re 2012. Time always reveals the truth.....VR is better than Jlo and the only one scared of that is Jlo (along with being scared of rain, tyres and mosquito's).

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories

Some toing and froing (as per usual) but to those saying "see, even rossi says the past victories don't count!" I would suggest that he is not saying they don't exist but rather to win today (and tomorrow), they have no impact. If you want to win today (and tomorrow) you have to constantly work hard ant improving all that you can. Let me enlighten you (and you know who you are).... Rossi struggles at Ducati (back then) and is now WC runner-up, beat his team mate and has his confiedence back to the point where he sees hope of a 10th title. It got hard so he worked hard and prevailed. Others won at Ducati (back then) and are now no longer racing. It got hard so they surrendered. YOU HAVE TO WORK HARD IN SPITE OF THE SET-BACKS.

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)

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)?
