MotoGP » Marquez: I can't wait for season to begin


I'm on board with Marquez..."I can't wait for the season to begin!" haha! Never mind who your favourite rider is...if the season pans out as the testing suggests, there will be close racing right through the field. The Ducatis are more then promising, Honda and Yamaha are closely matched, there are new riders who are all impressive - especially Vinales - and the season starts in a couple of days! This is fan heaven!

MotoGP » Ninth place Rossi ‘a lot more satisfied’


Joeski:
separated: Do people even bother to read the rules? Honda and Yamaha could have chosen to go Open like Ducati, but they chose not to. ...
Actually, I used to argue the same point, that would make us both wrong!!!! Honda could not go Open class nor Yamaha because they had wins in the 2013 season. Only factory bikes without a win in the previous 2013 (prior to 2014) season could qualify for open concessions. ...
Not true. Open Class was available to all, but Dorna didn't expect any factory teams to take the option - since the factories had all blocked the imposition of control software. The win restrictions etc that you refer to were introduced after Ducati had (a) opted to join the Open Class, and (b) made their factory software available to Magneti Marelli / Dorna for inclusion in the control Software... Dorna then created Factory 2...

Brain:
SuperSick58: the excuses are already starting for his lackluster results.....
He isnt the only one making early excuses. Just look at the quote under the headline.
Hahahaha!!! LOL...they say the truth hurts, but in this case it's agonisingly funny!!! Unfortunately for you, you blasphemous ba$tard, the "gods" have already issued a Fatwa for you impending demise... Je suis Charlie!!!

MotoGP » Rossi: We still have a lot of work to do


No predictions from me, but I hope Rossi continues where he left off last year. After being largely unimpressed by his performance at Ducati - especially after all the rubbish dumped on Stoner for substantially better performance on the same equipment with less support - I thought he endured his first season at Yamaha with refreshing humility, dedication and honesty. Last year, he showed his real talent again - and considerable character - by adapting to the new world order, and doing his level best to peg back the exceptional performance of the new prodigy. I really hope he can do even better this year.

MotoGP » MotoGP: 'Never go back to 800cc'


JcRacing:
JedPB67:
Sasha Alexandrovich: Go back to 500cc. Nothing wrong with twostrokes.
Two strokes with direct fuel injection run cleaner and more powerful than four strokes. I'd say it's just a matter of time we see them making a comeback. And that's looking forwards.
I'd be interested in your explanation of this. As far as I understand it, direct injection 2 strokes have some potential, but other than very qualified measures (e.g. at idle produces less CO than an equivalent 4 stroke...because it operates more like an 8-stroke in the circumstances, and adjusts its injectors to suit, or some other narrow operating range where it has an advantage). In other words, they've shown promise, and can build 2 strokes that are much more efficient and less polluting than old strokers, but they're not at the point of making any significant comeback. I'd welcome facts that support a more general revival.
