MotoGP » Bradley Smith ‘almost certain’ to leave Tech 3

MotoGP can be a brutal thing. I genuinely enjoyed Bradley's success last year, but if I was to make a comparison of his performance, to say Dovi and Cal, beyond incremental improvement and last year's stunning consistency, he has shown less factory potential in terms of fast, fast times. That's not to discredit his performance, it's looking at potential. However, I genuinely hope he finds a competitive ride. He deserves it. I certainly hope he absolutely smokes it this year, to give him the best chance of a good ride next year. As tough as it is, I think it's good of Herve to let Bradders know at this stage, rather than building false hopes, and maybe having him miss some other opportunities. He knows that he's on the market. Now his manager can earn whatever money he's paid. I hope he does well this year, and gets a good ride next. I enjoy his approach to racing, but I would like to see just a little more controlled risk taking and pushing the edge further - of course without crashi

MotoGP » Aprilia: First impressions good, work to do

I'm surprised they were unsure about the counter-rotating crankshaft. I thought that it was fairly well accepted that it offsets the gyroscopic effects of all the other parts that rotate the same way as the wheels. It therefore makes the bike more willing to accept lean inputs. Interesting too that Bautista has seen the difference between the Hondas and the Yamahas...Aprilia might be behind, but they have good pedigree. It's a tough task for the riders though, they're going to be racing on unsorted kit.

MotoGP » Poncharal: Smith still has 2017 Tech 3 chance

The fact is that both Bradders and Pol have one of the best non-factory rides in the paddock this year. Both of them ought to be on notice to perform. Their job is extremely measurable. They are paid exceptionally well to do it. It ought to be everything they ever dreamed of. Beyond that, if either of them get the results the team needs (the team including Yamaha, since they have considerable influence), their future is assured...for another year on similar terms. I hope Bradley has a really good year. I'd like to see him fighting for podiums. If he does that often enough, he will have a competitive ride next year. He just needs to perform. All the best to both of them.

MotoGP » MotoGP in one of best moments ever, says Lorenzo

Lorenzo is the best rider on the grid at the moment, and he's on the best bike. His team-mate is pre-occupied with a stupid vendetta, and the second best rider on the grid has a bike that still has issues. Whether Lorenzo wins in Qatar or not, we will soon learn. However, he must be the favourite for the championship at this point. Today, they are all on equal points. I'm getting hyped for the racing now...

MotoGP » Lorenzo vows to come out fighting in Doha

Aussie68: Lorenzo is a fake champion blah blah blah - he's basically a fraud.
This is one of the most ridiculous comments I've ever read on here. Obviously, you can't accept that if Rossi waas indeed worthy of the title, he would have beaten all comers. He wasn't good enough. You are just unable to accept this reality. No-one cares what you think, you're too biased. Try to have an objective view. You might be surprised. Rossi's a great rider, but he's not the fxxxing messiah.
