MotoGP » MotoGP Mugello - Free Practice (2) Results

Great to see Ducati at the top of the time sheets, with that brilliant lap from Dovi on race tyres...the race still looks like Lorenzo v Marquez, with Dovi in the mix. Of course it's too early in the weekend to know whether Rossi has the bike set up...but given recent form, he'll be there too. Shaping up nicely! Good to see Brad Smith leading some competitive Brits too.

MotoGP » Smith does ‘best possible job’ for season best result

Nice work by Smith to bank another very solid ride, and another good haul of points. Still keeping Pol at bay. Crutchlow and Marquez both used the hard front tyre, and both lost the front...there's every chance that the feedback was just slightly lacking, raising the risk of a lose. Obviously, in both cases, it's still a rider error, but it is odd that they were the only riders on the hard front, and both binned it with what looked like nothing errors. It's easy to bag these guys, but it's a bit harder to compete with them.

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo's form is bad news for me

Old is when you're injured. Rossi has managed to avoid the worst of injuries, by having less crashes and also being lucky to come out unhurt most times when he does crash...I can't remember him having a serious injury apart from Misano 2010. Rossi's problem is his poor qualifying, and he doesn't seem to be able to solve it. He leaves himself too much work to do. Today he also muffed the start. Third from that position was a good result. OTOH, Lorenzo is in exceptional form. He had the metronome so finely tuned today, I doubt anyone would have troubled him unless they started out ahead of him. There's still a lot of races left in this season, but the Hondas are just not working as well as they should, and you get the sense that Lorenzo his at one with the bike at the moment. The Ducatis are good, but the Yamahas still have the edge for now.

MotoGP » Rossi: It’s my fault

Well, Guna is a fully committed Rossi fan, but I agree with his assessment. If Lorenzo gets the start and the metronome is dialed, no-one (including Rossi) will catch him. Rossi WILL be in the mix, for no other reason than he is in good form this year, and his bike is very competitive. As much as I would like to see the Ducatis figure in the result, Iannone has a broken shoulder, and Dovi is not looking like a challenger to Lorwenzo. He might be there if he can make the tyres last. Crazy Joe has a double whammy. Crutchlow could figure here, but at this point, I'm expecting to see Lorenzo win, Rossi second, third willl be between Cal and Dovi, with Marquez close behind, and then, who knows? Anyway, good luck to all of them, and I'm hoping for a good race.

MotoGP » MotoGP Mugello - Full Qualifying Results

JL is in the box seat. He didn't have the soft tyres to qualify on. He's fast on mediums, and he has access to hard tyres...Ducati will be there, and no doubt make it exciting. Unfortunately, Marquez looks lost, which is surprising. Rossi will be in the mix, but unless Lorenzo gets a bad start, I can't see him catching JL. Props to Cal Crutchlow. Top Honda. Hope hge backs it up in the race! I don't know what's going on with Scott, he's not doing much better on the factory bike than he managed on the CRT compatible proddy...maybe the Honda is not as "amazing" as the experts on here think...
