MotoGP » Lorenzo victorious as rain causes chaos at Aragon


Blindly one eyed....that's what VR fans are...right! Of course when its Jlo, the fact that the other 3 aliens fell off had nothing to do with it and just look at his podium company....says it all really. Good win in that he made the right decisions while everyone around him almost wanted to bin it (VR way to close, DP..what the? and well, MM just stupid). Jlo kept it upright, kept pushing and thought about what he was doing. Good and deserved win but to those saying nothing but and that he would have won anyway, wake up! He would have been fighting for 3rd with VR. To sum up, which race was more of a gift, this or Assen last year and I still remember posts from that one......

MotoGP » No way to fight with Honda duo, says Rossi


Always good for a laugh this site. I read the Jlo thread and its all "he'll come good race day", "its obviously the tires" etc. Come to the Vale thread and its all "back to normal", "one off last week" etc. Correct me for stating the facts but.....same bike, same tires? VR quali 6th while Jlo quali 7th? VR can "race" and usually progresses where Jlo has said himself (and shown this year) that when caught in traffic and cant use clean lines then he struggles? Not saying Jlo won't finish in front of VR but the attitude of the VR haters to state he will and then if he does its all 'see i told you so" but if he doesn't its "the tires, the mosquito's, the temps, the weather, etc".

MotoGP » No way to fight with Honda duo, says Rossi


Just to finish off...this year, when the Factory Yams have done well, VR more often has bested his team mate. When the Factory Yam hasn't done well, VR has more often bested his team mate. Who know's what will happen for the remaining rounds and JLo may end up in front on points at years end (providing VR has a DNF or 2) but the year so far has disproved a lot of "opinions" voiced over the past 4 years and anyone who watched the crowds last round can deny it to anyone but themselves! 2016 will be a big year for the fans that post on this site....same tires and same software.....no where to run and no where to hide and even mosquito's won't cut it as an excuse. If your on the same bike and you get beaten, then your beaten!

MotoGP » MotoGP stars discuss Jack Miller deal


Step back from your emotions for a minute and contemplate the photo.....world champions all (except Iannone and Miller), Iannone is a proven race winner with speed in Moto2 and is strating to show consistancy in GP. So apart from your favourtism, why should Jack be in that group? Don't get me wrong, I like Jack and want him to succeed in GP and beleive he can but I do beleive that this is happening too fast and for political / commercial reasons and just don't want him seriously hurt or spat out by the "machine" of results based contract demands.

MotoGP » MotoGP stars discuss Jack Miller deal


Giveway: He will do fine. He's going from a 250cc to a thou. This has been done MANY times before, used to be the normal transition! 125-250-"motogp". To someone like Miller, much like Stoner, a bike is a bike, makes no difference.
Stoner had limited success through 125 & 250s (5 wins all up and returned to 125 briefly) and his first year in GP was a crash fest that he luckily survived. So drawing comparisons only diminishes your argument not strengthens it! Don't forget the list of Aussies who didn't cut it in GP such as Bayliss, Vermulen, West, Beatie just to name a few that could all ride different bikes and have all won races. So just being an Aussie and able to ride different bikes doesn't mean cirtain success!

F1 » Boullier questions Red Bull radio calls


tcarr925:
richard: i thought that the message to dr that his front left brake was overheating, and he was to go right, out of the ferraris hot air, was certainly an instruction to the driver on how to drive
Rich, you are right. Completely an instruction via Radio- and a GOOD one. The driver could not have known 1 brake was too hot. On a track like Singapore, when could a human even look down at gauges & scroll thru the menus to see "Brake Temp by Corner"? So personally, I would prefer to see the car finish the race than drop out to a failed brake. They should eliminate this silly rule, there are so few cars to start with- it takes a team to get it to survive to the end.
Right then, away with the driver's WC and replace it with a team WC! The trophy will have the manufacturer name, team name (one or two for example) and list each team member..... This would at least get rid of 99% of posts on this site about who is better:)

MotoGP » Is Jack Miller ready for MotoGP?


Having been offered the opportunity, he'd be silly not to take it! Is he the next "coming"....no based on results to date! The risks for Jack here are injury and stagnation. The injury risk is obvious (54Hp to 240Hp over night). The stagnation risk is more complicated. MM is not going anywhere soon and even though it seems that Miller is the replacement in training for Pedro, many things still have to happen for that to eventuate. Pedro's results / speed must wain to the point Honda have no need for him, the other up and commers through moto2 don't perform better or show better promise and his fellow moto3 riders (Marquez in particular) don't shine in Moto2 and give Honda the "what if" moments (Honada have broken contracts before - Dovi!!). Miller has a once in a life time opportunity given to him (for reasons not really known by anyone but Honda) but it's now up to miller at 19 and with only 3 years of Moto3 under his belt to make the most of it!

MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda


To put into perspective how I'm thinking.....MM spent 2 years in Moto2 having come second and then winning the WC and many posters back then were "unhappy" Dorna changed the rules to allow him into MotoGP. Now, miller is 2 years in Moto3 with 3 wins to his name and some posters are all "yeh, why not straight into MotoGP with HONDA"? I think Jack has both the talent and ability to run at the point end of MotoGP eventually.....what's the rush (if not his passport)? Australia may be a small market so Honda doesn't need the sales, however all teams and Dorna need a good turn out at the Phillip Island GP for as long as it's on the calander!
