MotoGP » Valentino Rossi withdraws CAS appeal


Good call. It was a pointless exercise (no pun intended), and a modest penalty under the circumstances. Let it go. Rossi needs to focus on 2016, and actually try to beat his rivals, otherwise, he won't be worthy of achieving his dream of another world championship. The best way is to win the most races. WHoever does that is usually the champion. The less reminders we have of the debacle at the end of 2015, the better.

MotoGP » ‘Uncertainty’ fuelled polemic after Rossi, Marquez clash


mrfill: Well said Herve. ... The Rolling Stones often get more than 110000 people...
Herve has just evoked the wierdest parallel for me: Valencia - MotoGP circuit, 110,000 people, a possible violent clash between fans foreseen, no death or injury reported. Altamont - speedway circuit, 300,000 people, free music concert, peace and love between fans foreseen, violence with deaths and injuries reported. I'm not sure what this proves. It's no more remote a link than the substance of the as yet totally unproven Sepang Press Conference claims... Maybe it demonstrates that Marquez really did conspire to slow down "the great man". Or maybe it proves that Hells Angels are more dangerous than MotoGP fans. Or maybe that the Rolling Stones are more popular than "the great man". Who mentioned the war?

MotoGP » ‘Uncertainty’ fuelled polemic after Rossi, Marquez clash


Crash is still milking this issue for all it's worth... They could have asked Herve to comment on how his team is coping with the spec software, adapting to the Michelin tyres, first impressions of what the 2016 M1 upgrades offer for Bradders and Pol...how happy he was with their results etc... Instead, let's just rake over the controversy that marred the end of 2015, and left a bad taste in most fans mouths.

MotoGP » Tardozzi explains Ducati’s 2016 approach


I was disappointed that Ducati kept two of their teams on pretty back-spec kit. Reading how they worked with Avintia to develop (or configure) the control software last year might help explain the rationale. The Avintia bikes provide a data baseline, and information from all the tracks. The testing might help understand the differences between their radically different bike versions (GP14, 15 & 16). Hopefully, next year, they'll be on bikes that have more of a common base. The other monkey in the works is obviously the new tyres, and everyone is in the same boat there..

MotoGP » Tardozzi explains Ducati’s 2016 approach


mrlong: If Casey is only contracted as a test rider does that not mean he can do as much testing as the team want him to? I know the testing is limited for the GP riders so I assume having a pair like Pirro & Stoner is ideal for testing parts that the other riders won't be allowed to?
Test riders have an annual tyre allocation (I can't remember how many). That's their testing limit.

MotoGP » Dovizioso talks new Michelin tyre characteristics


@Elbowdown93 Except that only the Ducati factory riders have even vaguely current kit. The satellite Ducatis are as similar to the factory bikes as a 916 is to a Panigale. The data they produce might be interesting, but it's only good for rough approximation. Ducati needs to ditch the 14.2 and earlier bikes. THey've built a new bike, let all their teams ride a version of that, so that they can sort out the issues it still has. They have some very good riders who would no doubt love to contribute...They can still put the latest goodies on Crazy Joe and Dovi's bikes, but give the other guys a chance to contribute...please! Yamaha has the right idea in that regard.... They have four riders on comparable (albeit not equal) kit.

MotoGP » Rossi: Monza a great way to finish the season


Crash.net....milking the controversy for every last click they can wring out of it... Really, the headline is just designed to rub salt into the wounds of the Rossi faithful, so that they vent their relentless anger again..a few more clicks, and a few more ads served... Has crash been bought out by Murdoch? Race fans have moved on from the debacle at the end of season 2015...We're interested in testing, tyres, tweaking control software, and whether any riders (or manufacturers) are making progress. You go right ahead and milk it though.
