MotoGP » Modest Brno expectations for in-form Redding

raju: second rider should be a guided young talent and it has to be scot redding and not Miller ...Maverick as per me is entering too soon without proving enough in Moto-2...
I don't know where you got this information, but there are strong rumours that Suzuki will do a deal with Aleix (who couldn't accurately be described as inexperienced) and Vinales. Vinales, without having dominated Moto2, has shown that he is a hot property. Colin Edwards is retiring. For whatever reason, Suzuki is not looking to RDP to take one of the rides. He may continue on as test rider, or, he may take another role. The Suzuki in tests with published results has achieved lap times that are comparable to the Honda Proddies. They need to do better than that. Maybe Aleix can do it. He has done well in CRT and Open Yamaha so far. Miller is linked to Honda, and much press from people allegedly "in the know" claiming that it will happen. It is called "silly season" for good reason,

MotoGP » Gresini suggests ‘major change’ to turn Bautista fortunes

As much as I'd like to see Redding on the Showa/Nissin factory Honda, I can't understand what has happened to Bautista. He's always been prone to crashing, which is an occupational hazard for some riders more than others, but I don't get how he doesn't look like being competitive. He's a better rider than his results show. Unfortunately, the results are what they are, and good guy or not, his ride is more than on the line now...He's had a good run at it.

MotoGP » Marquez expecting ‘strong’ Yamaha challenge

People seem to forget that the biggest change this year was in the revised Bridgestones. Yamaha refined software to get the fuel to last, which they did. Both Rossi and Lorenzo had issues with the tyres. Honda might have tweaked fuel usage, but they got the bike working with the tyres, or maybe Marquez felt good with the bike as it was. Maybe they were lucky, or maybe the conspiracy theorists are right, and Dorna directed Bridgestone to build tyres for Marquez :) Either way, Dani has struggled a lot more this year. But ifs and buts don't win races. The Honda is probably a better bike package, but the advantage isn't as stark as the results show. Marquez is the X-factor in this show.

MotoGP » Marquez: So difficult to win them all...

TrueFan: Back on topic... “...But it will be so difficult to win every race" - Marc Marquez. Interestingly, you can bet on this... William Hill is paying odds of 7/4 for the clean sweep, Bwin a bit better at 14/5. Not great odds considering that there are still six races remaining, so the bookies aren't as pessimistic about his chances.
8 races if I'm not wrong
You're not wrong. I can't do arithmetic today.

MotoGP » Marquez expecting ‘strong’ Yamaha challenge

"Marc Marquez says he expects Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo to pose a challenge to his MotoGP superiority as the series heads back to Europe for the Czech Grand Prix at Brno" Well he can hardly say that he thinks it will be a pushover, can he? The fact is, team YFR will be trying everything to upset his game plan, and would be very motivated to ruin his party, no matter what PR spin they present. Dani will be pretty determined to take it up to him too. Yamaha track? Not too long ago it was Michelin track or Bridgestone track. Now they're all Bridgestone. Bring on Brno...

MotoGP » ‘Intruder’ Dovizioso accepts hard passes

Vilas46: they both survive was just a bad decision for both on that time... You can bet that for both would had been better if they had keep or Rossi first or Dovi second or the opposite, that Loss there places to riders like Marquez and lorenzo, there reall problems here=)...
Rossi hit Dovi from behind. VR just miscalculated. The Ducati doesn't have tyres that last race distance, so he was never going to be there at the end. Also, he knows Rossi is fighting for second in the WC. Dovi let it go. VR made a mistake. No big deal. There was no chance for Rossi to complete that move - he came in too hot, and was always going wide.
