MotoGP » Lorenzo and Yamaha: One or two years?


BJR: The pressure on the track would be nothing compared to the political BS running in the background. Brain is 100% right that Dorna want a Rossi vs MM show and that's what they're working on. Slow down the Honda's and speed up Rossi's Yamaha. Jlo's not stupid, he got a hand up from Dorna and Bridgestone in 2012 and he knows it. He also knows he's just an extra now that Dorna got Rossi back on to a competitive machine like they promised they would when it was clear the Ducati storyline wasn't paying out. He's probably getting Ben Spies's end of the pineapple now as it's contract time and Yamaha want to sign him up for less. I know I'd knobble his ride this season and make him look bad so nobody else would want him if I were Yamaha so I could sign him cheap for another 2 years..
WOW....with all that script writing and power over results that you claim Dorna has, why didn't the rossi / ducati script work??????

MotoGP » Lorenzo and Yamaha: One or two years?


"Yamaha's advancement in braking is 95 % the new stiffer Bridgestone carcass that Rossi prefers. If you go back to last years tires, Lorenzo is 2nd and Rossi is back to 4th. The new tire has been good for Rossi, but a disaster for the team as a whole. Last year at least the bike won races,this year it feels better for Rossi but the team is getting crushed, but hey, at least Rossi is happy." @Brian, Your assessment opens the door for the very legitimate question.....does this mean Jlos performances on the tyre he likes (2013 & prior) are due largley to those tyres? You cannot say the biggest change is the tyre and so that explains his form turn around without implying his good from was due to the tyres he liked. Just my opinion but quite sound logic I would argue!

F1 » Vettel criticises Alonso’s defence


Surprise surprise...one of the rare moments Vettel does have a whinge and all the haters come out and bag him. He is whinging, I agree! But keep all the criticism of it in perspective, he is hardley jumping on a flight home to "contemplate his future" now is he....... The very same posters who would justify every single dummy spit of their idols somehow beleive that Vettel is not allowed to spit a dummy every now and then??????? Not very many comments condemming the other driver involved for his whining? I cannot even name him becasue I can't find his name amongst these posts! I do find it ironic though, that a thread about whinging see's Webber's name mentioned a few times:)

MotoGP » Stefan Bradl: Honda, Ducati, Aprilia - or Moto2?


CarmelitoEzpeleta: I think for Alvaro his best move will be to Pramac and try weasel his way onto a factory Ducati, Bradl should commit to Suzuki, and Gresini should either opt for proven experience in Aleix Espargaro, Kallio, Simon, West, or Barros... or try to graft through one of the hotshots from moto2 like Rabat, Vinales, or Torres.. Personally id like to see them take somone experienced like kevin Schwantz or Max Biaggi to give them a shot on the satellite honda
Good point...I would risk a season on Ant West. He impressed me when on Kwaka back in 2007/8 (I think) and the LCR is far more competitive in relation to the factories compared to the kwaka back then. He is doing well in Moto2 given his kit.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 2016 ‘year zero’ for MotoGP


Watched Donnington 2000 last night. Battle between Roberts, McWilliams and Rossi. Track was damp and the bikes were squirming at every input of the wrist. Not saying thats what it will be like in 2016 because the bikes, brakes and tyres are 16 years down the development road but it will definatley put an even bigger grin on Rossi's face. Has anyone else noticed the positive correlation between rossi's grin factor and his win factor??

MotoGP » Lorenzo ‘trying to revert the situation’


To those expecting him to bounce back here in Germany, he said he was "scared" last race due to flashbacks of his crash and now states in this article that he is already thinking about last years crash here. The guy is scared at the moment (not a criticism or jibe but an observation) and cant find his “mojo”. Rossi lost it at Ducati but was able to get it back because he switched from that to a bike he knew was good. What does Jlo do to get it back when he is still on the same kit? While I regularly bag his attitude on these threads, I do feel for the guy because his performance this year is not reflective of his ability (refer 2008-2013).

MotoGP » Lorenzo ‘trying to revert the situation’


"He is not in any kind of precarious position. He knows where he is going just got to agree on dollars. Yamaha wants him period!! So after 6 years and 2 championships..you think Yamaha is ready to get rid of him...LMAO.... good thing you do not run a business..you would lose your a** off!!" @Joeski, You seem very sure of your logic..."after 6 years and 2 championships..you think Yamaha is ready to get rid of him". Correct me if I'm wrong, but after 7 years and 4 championships and being the defending WC after back to back, they let Rossi go!!!!! The one thing all manufacturers have shown time and time again, is that the factory is in charge not the riders....... I hope you don't run a busines as you must be able to learn from other's mistakes & successes as well as your own.

MotoGP » Dani Pedrosa re-signs for Honda


Well done Dani and truley deserved both on current and past form for Honda. No option now for Jlo, he will sign with Yam as they are the only other competitive bike currently. Regardles of who Jlo signs for now, it will be for a lot less than he could have got if he signed first. Yamaha have already offered less (the current sticking point for Jlo), Ducati have basically said they are not going to make an offer as they don't have a competitive bike yet (assuming Jlo would refuse any offer) and Suzuki would not be able to afford anything other than way less than what Jlo is used to. ....how the mighty fall, claims to be the king of motogp and finds himself in this situation just 2 years later! And he has been on a competitive package designed around him the past 3 years....puts Rossi's time at ducati, his survival since and how he is seen by all (who count) in the motogp world into greater perspective (in my opinion).

MotoGP » Biaggi completes ‘positive’ Aprilia test


LLarry: WTF This is a thread about Biaggi & Aprilia. Why is it that some id1ot always has to bring Rossi into it? Stay on topic.
Couldn't agree more! And I look forward to seeing you post the same on VR threads when people bring up Ducati or Stoner or special tires or Honda etc......... It is what it is and the door swings both ways! For the record, I like Biaggi and he should be a motogp legend given some of the company in that group currently. I still to this day, watch the motogp classics from the 2000-2004 era just for the Biaggi, Rossi and Caparossi overtakes in packs of 5-7, 3 a-breast coming into corners, overtaking on the outside, inside and sometimes, simply side by side drags around corners.....eg Phillip Island 2000 (watch it :)).
