MotoGP » 'Lot of problems' for unhappy Rossi


Two steps forward, one step back.... Some of the posters here need to think about how they keep stating Jlo is strong and will come back yet the first real set-back for rossi is in practice at round 5 and some are banging on about JB and the usual crap. Grow up...if you think VR is that bad, what do you really think about Jlo since VR is No1 Yamaha in WC, No1 in his team (as No2 rider) and 3rd in WC.....on same bike and tires. Go rossi!!! Grow up haters and I look forward to your post race comments.....

MotoGP » Lorenzo: My dream is to stay with Yamaha


TrueFan: Ducati needs to concentrate on fixing their race bike. They need some consistency in their riders to do that. Lorenzo has practically declared his hand now anyway, and it's hard to imagine Yamaha turning away from him, he's been too good for them. And once again, the best rides disappear as if by magic...
While I agree at a general level, Yamaha did turn away from Rossi when hes had been even better for them than Jlo has been to date. Who know how these decisions are made but one thing is for sure, results are only one part of the equation.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez extends Honda MotoGP contract


Think for a moment. Honda have already signed MM so almost certainly the WC for at least this year and fair chance next year (no one knows what 2016+ will bring). They don't need Jlo in order to get the WC! They already have the rider in DP to back up MM and get the manufactures title as per last year. DP is (along with Hayden) the total professional when it comes to team player and politics alike. They dont need JLo to get the MWC and keep a settled "boat". Is it only me that think Honda don't actually need JLo. They may want him if they can get him for X amount but they don't need him. Another way to look at it...Jlo & MM don't get on and both want to be No.1. Why would Honda risk having not only internal issues but on track issues with these guy's???? Like I said above, they don't actual need JLo!

MotoGP » Front row first target for 'pretty fast' Rossi


Rossi generally choses his words carefuly so if he is starting to say things like he is pretty fast, he was able to beat Jlo & Pedro then I think he is confident he has the package he wants now and that it still has improvement to come. I said earlier this year, the package (VR, Yam & Bridgestone) are the real deal this year and it won't (shouldnt) be a shock if he consistantly finishes ahead of DP & Jlo. When MM has a bad day, maybe VR will win but I think the real competition for the WC will be next year. It's Marcs this year to lose. Yam are listenning more and more to VR (new frames appearing and its VR that likes them...) so I see his side of the garage getting stronger through the year regardless of what anyone else is doing.

F1 » Vettel full of praise for Mercedes


Hate him all you want but these are the facts.... He came from 15th and finished 4th He praised his team mate He praised Mercedes and added that they have earned their dominance Like I said yesterday, the true mark of a champion is how they handle losing (not winning all the time). It puts a lot of "things" into perspective when he takes a car with obvious issues from 15th to 4th......or is that simply a car advantage as the haters would state. Well done SV...top race and even more impressive, top post race comments. A true champion and sportsman.

F1 » Vettel to be hit with grid penalty


Cut the guy some slack. Nothing has gone to plan from the start of pre-season and the team haven't had one weekend yet where everything just works. The true mark of his stature is how he is getting on with it and not flying home in a hiss to "evaluate his future". With all the issue to date, 4-5 rounds in, you bet other drivers would be throwing helmets, refusing to talk to the media and openly bagging the car and team (as well as flying home on a whim to evaluate their career). No one can win all the time nor have things work all the time. If you think the guy that one the last 9 races of 2013 in a row and the last 4 WC in a row is not capable of getting it sorted with his team and the car, you are kidding your self. To trash him speaks little of everyone else on the grid who are all amazing and that's how close it is, you need everything working 100% all the time.

MotoGP » Dovi: Top four ride in a completely different way


@TrueFan, Totally off-topic (not about racing or riders) but what do you think Balance Sheets, Profit & Loss and Sales Forecasts are if not spin? Do we need more big corporations to go under only to find there were questionable accounting practices which made all of the above look good or at least better than they were? What triggered the GFC (among other things) and why did only a select few see it coming and what where their qualifications? Not looking for conflict but just putting forward an alternate perspective...the "sale grab" is in the delivery of the message, not the message content (in my observations). These riders who are simply racers, exhausted from a race, sweaty in their leathers and gasping for air and the first things they do getting off the bike is put a bridgestone cap on and a big almighty shiny watch. When I get of the bike after a track day or a big road ride, all I'm thinking of is a beer.
