WSBK » de Puniet striving for confidence ahead of WSBK bow


Randy is as good a rider as any of the current WSBK paddock. He is on crapy kit unfortunatley. The guy (don't forget) was qualifying 3-6 regularly on the playboy sponsord LCR against VR, CS, DP & Jlo. I think it was around 2009-10 that I would watch qualifying predominantly to see if Randy could pole! Randy is probably faster than any of the current WSBK boys but not consistsant and now on realy crap kit to boot. I agree, mid-pack at best but not through lack of ability or talent....

MotoGP » MotoGP top speeds ‘medium-term concern’


How to slow them down? The answer is in the real world of road bikes.....road safety cameras! On the straights, you have safety cameras and if the bike is clocked over the set limit, the rider is docked an amount of time of the end race time...easy! Got to have a laugh hey! On a serious note though, tires are the best option in my view, to slowing the bikes down, both in top speed and through the corners. A rider knows his grip level so ig the tires can only go "x" around a corner, that's how fast they go. If a tire will only last "x" laps at "x" speed, then riders will have to manage! This is not rocket science, do we realy think if speed limits on the road were abandoned that all those toyota carollas would sudenly be doing 300km p/h?? If we accept the apetite for horsepower, we must accept the limitations by other means!

MotoGP » Lorenzo: One lap doesn't win you a race


Hi Road, How dare DP not highlight Jlo's brilliance (LOL) :) But it may simply be a case of Jlo trying to play mind games with MM although I can't see why? 2 years have passed and nothing seems to phase MM too much while mixed conditions, VR, MM, tires and mosquito's all seem to phase Jlo! If Jlo is trying the mind game thing, he is simply beating his head against a brick wall. Then again, interviews like this would suggest that Jlo has been beating his head against a brick wall for a while!

F1 » Vettel marks Ferrari F1 debut with top time


Firstly, good job and well done, Ferrari for the improved car and Seb for driving it well! Secondly, while you would not be mortgaging the house on pre season test results, to suggest they are no indication is ludicrous. Remember Seb's pre season last year and then how his year panned out? The major work to the cars is already completed, pre-season is about getting all the bits to work as a unit as best as possible. For the car to be quickest at this point is an indication it will be competitive enough (if reliable). Couple a competitive car with a proven winner who is more hungry now than ever??????? Like I said, you wouldn't be mortgaging the house but you should be looking for a bookie offering long odds on Seb (most at this point) and putting down $100 or 2! And all those giving him and Ferrari no chance, well that's as silly as mortgaging the house!

MotoGP » Marquez chooses ‘compromise’ Honda


...cont. Dare I say it, but those suggesting Stoner is MM equal (or better) are simply enjoying the fact that such a claim can never be challenged with actual results out on track (other than the posted lap times to compare). It gives me a chuckle to reflect on the claims that back then (2012), stoner held a lot of the lap records and his fans pointed to that fact as proof he was the fastest (and as such, the best). Well, a look at those lap records now paint a very different picture...don't they?

MotoGP » Marquez chooses ‘compromise’ Honda


Interesting discussion thread here, should be about why Honda cannot give MM a bike he is 100% happy with rather than having to compromise! Instead, we have 2 distinct discussions, 1 about the RCV being the only reason MM wins and the other being that Stoner is a match (or better) than MM. On the first, MM is the best because yes, there are only 4 bikes capable of winning races at the moment but MM is the only one constatntly winning races out of those 4. On the second, In Casey's last year of racing (2012), he finished 3rd with the two in front of him (Jlo & DP) winning more races than Casey in that year (DP on same tyres and different frame - Stoners choice)! MM jumped on Casey's bike in 2013, with Casey's team and posted FASTER times straight out of the gate and made the 2 guys (DP & Jlo) that beat Casey in 2012 look slow!

MotoGP » Rossi: First impressions so positive


Great stuff from all! The "usual suspects" at the top again as you would expect! VR is constantly improving as is the Yam and Honda are constantly throwing big bucks at "it" (14 bikes for one test). Only first test but it is worth noting that pre-season testing as a general, has always been a decent indication of who the "contenders" are so from that viewpoint, nothing has changed from 2014. I do note with interest that VR was strong all day and both on new and old rubber so with the improved gearbox to come, he wont go backwards! It will be a far closer battle this year as Jlo also likes the bike (and is not complaining about the rubber) while MM has gone for a "bitsa" bike (bit a this and a bita that). My only predictions at this stage are.. MM wont win the first 10 races in a row! MM still has a genuine chance of his 5th WC! VR still has a genuine chance of his 10th WC! Jlo still has a genuine chance of his 5th WC! DP still has a genuine chance of his 3rd WC!

MotoGP » Rossi ‘thinking’ tenth world title


So interesting to read so many posts saying "no chance". Interesting when I reflect on similar posts before the 2014 opener stating he "won't be competitive", "won't win a race" and that "Jlo will win the WC". So interesting that so many experts keep getting it wrong! Not saying VR will win the WC but how can you be so certain he won't? What is plain and right in front of you is that VR has as much chance as MM, Jlo & DP. No one is stating the MM has no chance or that Jlo has no chance and many are not even stating the DP has no chance. So yes, by all means, laugh at the fan club boys but remember just who has been laughing the most and the loudest over the past 15 years and why?
