MotoGP » Marquez's career was almost over in 2011

Wilairot crash was in Australia. Eye injury was at Sepang. TF, that really is poor form. Marquez is still a kid. He was barely out of nappies when these "incidents" occured. At least get the sequence and causal factors aligned. Yes, it was dumb for him to hit Wilairot from behind. Get over it. If we let children race motorcycles (and I believe we should), they are going to sometimes do dumb things. Walairot was not too badly injured - thankfully - and I doubt he holds any grudge against Marquez. Neither should you. Let it go.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez improved, but 2013 more impressive

Rossi: “Unfortunately for us he was able to improve - not a lot about the speed, but about the riding style, the way to use the bike, the way to brake, the way to accelerate and especially compared to last year he remained a very aggressive but now it looks like the situation is more under control for him. Last year sometimes he risked too much, you know.” Absolutely agree.

MotoGP » Too little, too late from Pedrosa at Motegi

Metalguru: I am disappointed by Pedrosa's performance because I believe he consistently finishes beneath his potential and beneath the potential of his machine, and other competitors show greater commitment, greater hunger - Dovi, Ianone, Rossi, Redding,
Pedrosa has always beaten Dovi when they were teammates. Redding and Iannone are just good riders but they don't have Pedrosa's talent.From the young guns at the moment, only Vinales has the potential to beat Pedrosa on same machinery
Well it's true that Pedrosa beat Dovi when they were teammates, but it's a little early to compare Iannone and Redding to Pedrosa, let alone Vinales - none of them are riding bikes that could win races. It will be quite a while before any of them rack up the number of podiums that Pedrosa has, let alone the number of wins. Otherwise, your retort is a pretty fair assessment.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez is 2014 champion, Lorenzo wins Motegi

Congrats to Marquez on locking in the championship. He had a go at chasing down Lorenzo, but realised that he didn't need to, and diodn't want to make another silly mistake. I don't know what happened to Pedrosa, but he really looked to be struggling for much of the race. Great result for both factory Yamahas. Props to them both - I didn't expect them to be so competitive here. I don't understand how people find brilliant precision riding boring. Three slightly different styles at the front, and really fine margins between them, managing tyres, fuel and their race lines. What's not to like? Fairing bashing is fine, but gets silly on a track like Motegi, usually ending in carnage. Roll on to the dead rubbers...

MotoGP » Marquez's career was almost over in 2011

Well, his eyes seem to be working just fine now. It would have been a great shame if he had to give up racing, but everyone usually ends up dealing with their share of hardship in life... I love that he calls it a "hobby"... I always thought hobbies were things that you pay to do! I'm pretty sure Honda pays him, and they'll pay him much more as his stellar career blooms. Good luck to him. Rossi thinks it was more impressive to win in his rookie year, but there was a bit of luck involved there. This year, his performance has been clinical. There is no question that he was the only rider that deserved to win based on performance. None of his rivals were injured, and he did not make any silly or dangerous moves - just a couple of mistakes in the last few races after the fight was finished. Big congrats!

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati not ready to win

Well, this Ducati fan didn't expect a win. Dovi put in yet another good ride, but you can't tell where the bike stands compared to the Hondas and Yamahas, because they are running on much leaner fuel management regimes, and it may or may not provide advantages for the Ducati. It's good to see them closer, because it appears there's some improvement. However we just don't know how close they really are. I hope it wasn't down to fuel.
