MotoGP » Lorenzo: I always have great fun at Brno

Lorenzo rode a great race at Indy, but it always looked like Marquez would pounce. Brno is a track where he should do well again, and he's good there, but I expect the Hondas to figure in the result. We'll see. If Rossi can resolve his psychological problem with qualifying, it will make for a really good race. Although the numbers suggest that the championship is a two horse race, Marquez is well capable of winning from here. He has to do things right every race, and rely on Rossi and Lorenzo messing each other up, but it is very possible that a three way fight will evolve from here. Otherwise, unless Rossi can solve qualifying, Lorenzo will win the championship. I have no prediction for Brno, just hoping for another good race!

MotoGP » Espargaro urges patience, says Suzuki project on plan

Well, I have to say that Suzuki has exceeded my expectations this year. Aleix has put in another good season of particularly impressive qualifying performances, but I am probably more impressed by Vinales. As a rookie, he has smoked it in some cases. Let's not forget that the bike still needs a fair bit of development - mostly more horsepower. It clearly handles well, but gets blown away by its more powerful adversaries. However, it's easier to boost power than handling, as Ducati will attest.

MotoGP » Iannone: Difficult to know what to expect

What's worse for Ducati is that because they have different fuel allocation and different tyres, it's difficult to know where they are really at in the development curve. As I understand it, they still don't have access to the hard tyres the factory teams use in races. It seems a waste of waiver of the engine freeze rule to have a non-like-for-like comparison available. Their main objective ought to be to improve the bike's competitiveness against Honda and Yamaha. How is that possible when they have a different fuel load and different tyres? It looks to me as if Iannone is riding the wheels off the Ducati, but the best he can do is 5th. It looks like a long road ahead from here...

MotoGP » Elias: My phone is open 24 hours a day!

RDix: He would be quite good for BSB and would make a great teammate for Shaky and would show us just how good Shaky really is, or possibly isn't.
Feck off. Shakey's cool. He was part of the brilliant FastBikes team. Not only that, but he can wheelie forever. You have no cred. You probably ride a Harley. I'm a Shakey fan, and if you say anything bad about him, I'll pi$s in your petrol tank. There.

MotoGP » Rossi: Brno better, but Lorenzo ‘very strong’

ducati999s: Rossi's only focus should be to finish ahead of Jorge,...
... if he focuses on STARTING ahead of Jorge...
TrueFan: Rossi can't just focus on JL for the rest of the season. Winning every race is the right approach. ...
I agree with that, but he won't win every race if he keeps starting from the third row. He has the skill to win, but Lorenzo and Marquez are consistently capable of laying down faster laps by a couple of tenths. Rossi has race-craft and consistency as his major weapons. They're almost useless from behind. He needs to get to the front and control the race from there. My guess is he needs three more wins to take the title.

MotoGP » New engine, fairing for Ducati

@Cossiegaz there's no doubt that Stoner was mercurial. He did things on the Ducati that Rossi only came to respect when he tried to ride it himself and realised the problems were deep and all but immoveable. The GP15 is a considerable improvement over the GP14. However, they're not likely to fix it in one go. They still have a big gap to close. Unfortunately, the different tyres and fuel loads (to other factory bikes) make the situation worse, not better, because there's no direct comparison. The greater fuel could make the gap appear closer than it should be. The tyres make it almost impossible to properly compare. As a long suffering Ducati fan, I hope they make the bike competitive - on a level playing field, but I can only hope. Otherwise, rock on aliens.

MotoGP » Rossi: Brno better, but Lorenzo ‘very strong’

ducati999s: Rossi's only focus should be to finish ahead of Jorge,...
From where I sit, I think VR would help his own cause enormously if he focuses on STARTING ahead of Jorge... How many races has he left himself too much to do after qualifying? Despite that, to salvage third again after another problematic weekend is a recovery skill that some other riders could learn from...It's never easy to win at this level, but it's got to be easier from the front row compared to row 3.

MotoGP » Smith keen to protect top satellite status

SuperSick58: ...and BS will implode......
...hasn't Bradley been riding well ?
...and I think he will implode.
Based on?.....
...probably based on "eye of newt and toe of bat...", and SuperSick58 at the cauldron with her spell book open. :) Bradders is doing a good job. He's not likely to challenge for the WC, and he's not likely to get a prime factory ride. That said, the fact that he hasn't won a world title is NOT an indication of lack of talent. He's a world class rider, and he's demonstrated that this year. He's proven that he deserves his ride at Tech 3, and a significant number of his detractors have manned up and recognised his performance. Props to them.
