MotoGP » Rossi: I played all my cards - and more

That's one of the best rides I've seen from Rossi in a long time. I thought he was stalking Pedro, and would easily take hime. Then he dropped off a bit a couple of times, and I could see he was just hanging with him.. He threw absolutely everything he had at Pedrosa, and almost got there. He has to at least know that there was nothing else he could have tried. As he said in the press conference, "I tried all my cards". Props to Rossi.

MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo ready for title showdown

The big question remains as to who will win the head to head between JL and VR over these four races. By a rough calculation, barring any disaster weekends, Rossi needs to beat JL twice to win the title. Lorenzo needs to beat Rossi at least 3 out of 4 to win. My money is on Rossi, because of his consistency. However, Lorenzo is faster, and usually qualifies better. We've just seen what Lorenzo can do from the front row. Rossi's qualifying failures could end up costing him the title. However, the pressure is on both of them - Rossi to qualify on the front row, and Lorenzo to finish each race. It's a tantalising mix of possibilities. I could only enjoy it more if there were other riders still in serious contention for the championship.

MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo ready for title showdown

Guna4699: # I used to crash a lot in 2008... - JL # Hammer constant speed... - JL These are absolutely true, but the problem is he shouldn't be saying this by himself to the media... Atleast I never saw another rider self proclaiming himself. That's why I love his riding and hate his personality...
Guna, it seems to me that you prefer that the riders should not say what they think, but rather that they should say something meaningless but "playful". Maybe you should stop watching reality TV... Racing is supposed to be about the racing. Sometimes riders ought to say things that ruffle our adds to the theatre. There's no need to "hate their personalities" for it.

MotoGP » MotoGP Aragon - Race Results

Vilas46: ... its unfair to be that fast on corners almost hitting Pedrosa but on the straights Pedrosa is so Light that the Honda Fly away...
If you brake so late that you're almost running off the track (like VR was for each pass), there's a risk the guy you're passing will brake harder early, let you pass, and get on the throttle EARLY, like from just past the apex. When that happens, he's going to either go straight back past you as he exits, or smoke you on the straight. If you're going faster when you get on the throttle, or get on the throttle earlier (with traction), you're going to look like you've got more horsepower. Those bikes are evenly matched now. If anything, the Yamaha is better than the Honda this year. - see how the satellite bikes compare.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Victory keeps title hopes alive

I'm just glad that the title is still open at this stage of the year. On the one hand, I'd like to see Rossi win, because he''s shown character (and talent) in coming back, but the downside is that the yellow panty fanboys would be toxic. It's not enough for me to begrudge Rossi success though. On the other hand, Jorge is faster at almost every track. He's made a couple of mistakes, but otherwise, he's been amazing. It's down to four races. Hopefully, it won't be decided by crashes, weather, or bad luck... Good luck to both of them. II just hope that if Lorenzo wins, the yellow panty lot will button it, and if Rossi wins, well...I don't mind them enjoying it, but they should respect other riders.

MotoGP » Lorenzo slashes Rossi's title lead at Aragon

Flawless metronomic ride by Lorenzo...He should buy Pedrosa an impressive gift to say thank you. I thought Rossi was stalking Dani and would easily have him, then it looked like there might be a fight....but I didn't expect what we got...they threw everything at each other. Unfortunately for Rossi, he was passing so late he had to almost stop the bike in the corners, and Pedro saw him go past and breaked harder, earlier, and was on the throttle while Rossi was still getting through the turns. Berilliant race. Bad luck for Marquez, but it looked like he simply over-cooked it.
