MotoGP » Pedrosa: I needed more time to pass Rossi


Dani is a great rider and deserves his ride with Honda and deserves it to continue. I have also noticed that his rocketship launches have dissapeared? Lately it is Jlo (apart from last 2) rocketing to the wholeshot (on an inferior under powered bike if you listen to many posters). I believe it is to do with the tyre and the impact on his hard braking confidence at that first corner (when colder) which his holding him back from his trademark rocketship launches. As for team orders, I dont think Dani is being told what to do race by race but at some point last year, I think it was made clear to him that MM is AND WILL BE GOING FORWARD, the number one. Dani is just like Hayden...loyal to his own detriment. Just my opinion...

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


Yes, CC & AD are saying the same thing but in today's world where almost all things rotate around how people convey a message (negative or positive), it comes down to how you say something more than what you are saying. Share prices, political elections, diplomatic situation between countries, footy manager dismissals / appointments....all hinge on HOW rather than WHAT is said. So, sure CC is copping flack for saying the same thing BUT he said oh so differently......didn't he! For example, if these 2 were trying to sell you shares in Ducati, and your only option was you had to buy off one of them, who would you buy off given they have said the same thing?????

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.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: All this hard work for three sh*t laps


I find it soooo funny that many of the posters here who are telling Cal to keep quiet or that some things shouldnt be said or that he is moaning... are the same posters who used to state that Stoner simply called it how it was!!!!! To highlight how funny, Stoner was at the front end of the field and didn't suffer the complete loss of front breaks!! Like I said, sooo funny:) Having said that, Cal is moaning and he did know what he was up for when he signed. To throw Ducati and Dovi's team under the bus (oh how horrible) like this is very, very poor form in my opinion:)

MotoGP » Landmark race, disappointing result for Lorenzo


Seriously....he is not as fit as his 35yo team mate (7 years older)????? Who's responsibility is it to be fit and ready to race???? He is not ill nor injured so who owns it???? Also, I swear by reading the article, Jlo just named VR as one of the best riders on the planet along with MM & DP????? He even stated he tried to keep up but couldn't (no mention of tyre or bike issues)!! Puts a lot of posters on this site in their place! Seriously....MM combined with Honda made the difference???? How do you explain VR & Yamaha beating you then (by 7 seconds)????? As for those saying Jlo is no longer the favourate Spaniard....he never was! Even when he was winning in Spain, the Spanish cheered more for DP. The Spanish (other than his fans) don't like Jlo because of his attitude.....anyone can be a good winner but only champions can be good losers.

MotoGP » Tyre ‘risk’ spurs Rossi on to podium


Last year VR dropped off the pace after the first 2-3 rounds. This year, round 4 he is second....7 seconds ahead of Jlo on the same kit and tyres (I am still looking for all the comments slagging VR for his 8 second gap behind Jlo at Qatar last year!!!! for some whitty slagging rebuffs) MM on another planet but VR is looking good to continue this form all year I suspect. I peg him for second or third in WC this year. At 35 and against Jlo & DP that is as good as 1st (given MM will be 1st). But just remember, it only takes one mistake from the leader and the guy next in line (if close enough) will pounce. True of a race and true of the WC. I'm sure I can hear the grinding of teeth from all the haters around the world at the moment. LOVE IT!!!!

MotoGP » Marquez: I don’t know why I felt so good!


Hats off to MM. Top ride and he is the real deal for those still suggesting its just the bike. Good interview. Many posters on this sight would have to agree that he simply told how it was ???? When you open a gap out to 5+ seconds buy the 6-7th lap, what else can it be but the rider! MM doesn't mention Rossi a lot because he admires him and is simply trying to mess with Jlo. Think about it....Jlo thinks he is MM's better so MM keeps talking about Jlo's threat yet 3 of 4 rounds now, Jlo has finished behind VR. Riders know each other's potential (rider, bike & tyre combo) so MM has a fair idea that Jlo is not as big a threat as DP & VR at the moment. All the while, VR goes about his business "under the radar" and has fun (and shows it) with MM. I would say that MM & VR got together in the off season and disgussed how to best screw with Jlo....imagine your rival running away with the WC and your old has-been team mate beating you more often than not.
