MotoGP » Moto3: Title battle lives on as Oliveira wins, Kent 7th

Danny really is making hard work of this, but the damage was again done with a stupid strategy and penalty in qualifying. I can't believe they didn't learn from last week. The race itself, I thought Danny did a good job. Four of them nearly skittled each other in the final corner and Danny didn't need to be a part of that. Now he just needs to be normal for Valencia. Ignore people following you, just do your own laps and you'll be there or thereabouts with no penalties Safe first couple of laps, then it on the back of the leading group and follow them home. Minimal risk. I'd have loved to have seen Danny win it with a few rounds go and then fight for wins in the last couple of races, but that moment has gone.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden made a MotoGP Legend

Deano B: So given your criteria for 'Legend staus' that means Colin Edwards should of been given the same when he retired.
Colin is a WSB legend, I love the guy, he's class on and off a bike. But he never won a MotoGP race where as Nicky has won a MotoGP world championship. Whether he is a legend in the true sense of the word is debatable. Short on talent at the highest level, but more than made up for in determination and a never-say-die attitude. I respect that. But if they gave Capirossi a place at the 'Legends Table', then Nicky certainly deserves one too.

MotoGP » Moto3 Valencia - Free Practice (1) Results

Braap: Looks like the real Danny Kent has returned! He really needs to do it like this so that he can build up the confidence and calm before probably the most nervy race of his career.
To be fair, Danny has lost none of his speed over recent races, and has frequently topped practice sessions. He just needs to cut out getting stupid penalties from race control and keep towards the front group.

F1 » Michael Schumacher is ‘still fighting’ - Todt

@LaughingGas Recovery from brain injury is a progressive scale. It's not as black and white as "will recover" or "won't recover". He has already made some recovery, compared to where he was. That Michael will never be the same Michael as before his accident is clear. In cases of severe brain trauma, this is almost always the case. If Michael is still unable to eat, speak or move, then of course he cannot be expected to even live a normal, independent life again. However, people adapt and life's expectations can change. Even with severe injuries, we must hope Michael can recover enough to experience joy in his life again. It may not be the joy of race victory or the exhilaration of high speed, but even the small things... watching his son racing, seeing his kids grow up, intimate moments with family, seeing his first grandchild. I hope Michael will recover enough to experience and enjoy those things, even if his physical condition is beyond recovery.

MotoGP » Moto3 Malaysia - Race Results

DI43LO: Can't help but think Kent would've had the championship wrapped up by now if race direction stopped d***ing about with his starting position
True, but the penalties are deserved - and I'm a Kent fan! His strategy in qually is awful, and if he breaks the rules, he will get the penalties. It's a stupid way to give away points. Today Danny actually rode a good race, because it was mayhem in the leading group. Four nearly took each other out at the final turn, and Danny really didn't want or need to be a part of it. Now for Valencia his strategy needs to be simple and safe. Run your own laps in qually and if people want to follow, let them. Kent will still be top 5 on the grid. Then safe first few laps, sit on the back of the group and bring it home.

MotoGP » Smith frustrated when 'support doesn't go both ways'

Doug17: That he has finished races may be all well and good, but the big get off's are costly. And without doubt affect his race pace,
a) Crashes, particularly in practice, are part and parcel of finding the limit and seldom do they impact race pace. It's part of the sport, and most team managers would rather have someone fast, who falls off occasionally, than someone safe and slow. b) Yamaha won't particularly care, they don't have to pay to repair it. Herve does. c) Brad's crash record through 2015 is better than most, including his team-mate and a certain Marc Marquez. I don't think that would put Yamaha off signing Marc, if the chance ever arose.

MotoGP » Smith frustrated when 'support doesn't go both ways'

Don't agree with the comments that Bradley is 'lucky' to have a Tech3 ride, he's more than justified his place in a good MotoGP team this season. And I can understand his frustration if Tech3 provide the factory team with data but don't get any back. Having said that, this is a discussion that Bradley should be having with Yamaha behind closed doors. This is not something he should be discussing in the media.
