MotoGP » Petrucci breaks hand in Phillip Island fall

Good luck to Danilo for a fast recovery. I hope the damage is not too near any of the joints. Hands are fairly important in controlling a motorcycle...I can't imagine that it will be in very good shape by the next test, but then, I didn't expect Miller to be back on the bike so soon after what was a smashed ankle...These guys are not your average man-in-the-street. They heal more quickly, and have much higher pain threshholds.

MotoGP » Crutchlow plays down testing speed

Cal's interviews are always a good read, because he is willing to say what he thinks. Some of the more celebrity oriented fans on here might think he's a ****** because he says it even if it's controversial, but I like his attitude. He is also usually good for at least a few very hot laps on a race weekend, and no-one could accuse him of not giving it his all.

MotoGP » Marquez: Lost and found?

Interesting comments from Marquez. The Honda still has problems it would seem. There are only a couple of low speed corners at PI, most are fast and flowing, meaning less problems for a persistently aggressive engine. Pedrosa still seemed to be having difficulties though. I wonder if they're more hampered by the Michelin front tyre issue. I find it hard to believe that Honda can't solve a problem with their engine. It's their key strength.

MotoGP » Dovizioso cures vibration, finding Michelin inconsistencies

Interesting to get Dovi's insight into the test. It is not surprising that they still have some work to do adapting to the Michelins. It's a big change for everyone after so many years running Bridgestones. If they found and fixed a problem like vibration, the test is a positive one, despite getting blown away by the grandfather version of the same race bike (i.e. GP14.2).

MotoGP » Suzuki's Top Gun Maverick ‘could have done a ‘28’

ar86: I will happy if paris hilton back to support him again
Hahaha...that's pretty good! I remember when Vinales won his first 125 race. By the time he won his 3rd or 4th, Paris came along to the track, and spoke to the press in Park Ferme after the race. The 16 year old kid didn't really enjoy having a mere sponsor take the limelight...Pretty funny. That said, massive kudos to Hilton for putting her own money into GP racing to sponsor a team. She went up in my estimation at that point, and she's not really that rich (as in how much she owns), so it was a significant contribution.

MotoGP » Suzuki's Top Gun Maverick ‘could have done a ‘28’

Mon aimable ami Francais, Suzuki has more history in GP racing than Ducati, as I am sure you appreciate. That said, I share your surprise at the level of competitiveness that MV is showing at this stage. Having said that, he has shown remarkable ability through the feeder classes, and it appears that he is coming of age at the level that matters most. Interesting that team Avintia blitzed this test, but team Aspar struggled. Aspar has the same technology as Avintia. Laverty and Hernandez are both capable, but this test was obviously difficult for them.
