MotoGP » Rossi: I don’t regret joining Ducati

LeisuresuitLarry: With a salary of €15 million per year, how could you regret it???
Bro, it's not about the salary. He's not much money oriented as you think.. He seeks for a competitive bike.
"Bro", if you read on, that was at Ducati. Back at Yamaha, he's earns 80% for marketing, and 20% for riding! The 80/20 rule still applies. You don't make that kind of money unless you put together a package that's carefully designed to make money. Of course he doesn't regret his time at Ducati. He's grown as a person as a result of it. He learned some tough lessons, picked himself up and came back. After treating Lorenzo quite badly, Lorenzo was magnanimous about Rossi's return. VR no doubt learned from that too. He's riding better than he has for years, he has a hot girlfriend. Life is good for him. He still has his world championships, and good luck to him.

MotoGP » Aprilia confirms Gresini for MotoGP return

Well, it's nice that some of this is sorted out. Good luck to Aprilia, they have a proud history in 250s at least - so they definitely know about GP racing. But this is the premier class, and the constant specification changes make it difficult to catch up, as the new management at Ducati is finding. I liked Melandri as a racer, but he has been away from GPs for a few years now. I'm not sure that he has so much to offer today.

MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record

ProfessorX: I am sorry, but it has to be said, that smile is the least convincing in all of motorsports. There, it's been said, and disagree if you please, but dang, it needs some work.
You should be sorry Prof. That smile is real. It is saying "I'm going to win my second MotoGP World Championship this year! And it's only my second year. And I'm barely even an adult yet. And, wow...I'm just loving all this winning..." It's a smile that comes when you know your competitors are gone. There's just no way known that Marc Marquez is not genuinely pleased with the way his career is working out. No way in the wide world... He's very happy with his results. He's very happy with his lot in life. He's got a lot to smile about. Winners are grinners. Even his enemies can understand that!

MotoGP » Marquez with one eye on title, no early 2015 debut

beastinblack: Technically three riders have beaten MM this year....
Yeah I don't understand how they keep getting this wrong. Pedro was the only one other than MM to win a race this year, but your right, Rossi and Jorge have also beaten MM.
That is true in a pedantic sense, but in the grand scheme of things, it's all Marc Marquez this year - and none of the others would try to deny that fact. The other riders recognise the magnitude of his performance - and wish they were having his year!

MotoGP » Test head-start for Ducati at home

1MoreRound: For me Ducati is the most interesting thing to watch in GP this year. ...
Well, that's a big call. I'm a long time Ducati fan, and I'm pretty interested in what Marquez has done this year. Dovi has been super good and consistent, and Crazy Joe keeps on impressing. Cal started off with some unfortunate luck with technical issues, but since then has been very disappointing. I'm still seeing the big red bike chewing out the edges of its tyre too early in the race, apart from still having the kinds of problems that Stoner used to somehow ride around. I'm still frothing at the mouth in the hope of seeing what Dovi and Ionnone can do if Ducati gets the handling sorted.

MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass

I didn't see a pass in the Silverstone MotoGP that was dangerous. Quite a few were aggressive, but they didn't encroach on the other riders proper line prior to completing the pass. There's a difference between being disappointed or disadvantaged, and threatened. Anyway, most of this thread became another atraction control fest, so apparently no-one cares about the passing...
