MotoGP » Marquez Friday double, Suzuki ends in smoke


I hope Suzuki can do something soon. I don't put too much stock in trap speed, but if it is due to wheel spin, they need to get it sorted ASAP. If it's a power shortfall, or aerodynamic issue, I'd have to ask what they've been doing so far. It would be very sad for MotoGP if they can't compete with the open class bikes, so I have nmy fingers crossed. It must be worrying for A Espagaro and Vinales. Otherwise, I'm not sure the times from this session tell uss much, except that the top 10 are close.

MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo set for second place showdown


This will be the battle of the weekend. Rossi is in the box seat for second, but to lock it in, he has to at least podium. Lorenzo has to simply go for broke, and let nature take its course behind...and Rossi could still finish second. Frankly, I think Rossi has earned his lead, but Lorenzo has shown some grit to overcome his disasterous start... hope they both have a good race.

MotoGP » Barbera: Kawasaki 'fooled' us over MotoGP plans


Ducati should benefit from having an extra two bikes on the grid, especially running open class software. Seems like Avintia did the "no-brainer" thing in switching to Ducati, and at least they've salvaged something from their season as a result. Pretty disapointing experience with Kawasaki. @Nealio agree...big loss of face. Kawasaki is a big company, but motorcycles are a very small part of it. The bike guys obviously don't have much clout, and someone committed something beyond their authority.

MotoGP » Marquez heads for one-off record shot?


He's had a stellar season, without a doubt, but this "record" is not particularly meaningful, although, 13 out of 18 sounds even better than 12 out of 18. I hope he has a good race, but I'm interested to see how Rossi and Lorenzo go. The wheels almost need to fall off for Rossi to miss out on second, and that's an exceptional achievement given the problems he's had in the last couple of years. Bring it on!

MotoGP » Bridgestone asymmetric front returns for Valencia


Hopefully, they can match the compound with the track temperature a bit better, and we avoid the domino effect. Admittedly, Valencia's temperature range should be easier to match than Philip Island's. If you're going to have a "control-this" or "control-that", they ought not to have such a bearing on the the race results as they have over the past few years. Either the tyres suit the Honda, or they suit the Yamaha...or there are faulty units issued that delaminate. Control tyres should be neutral in terms of advantage. That aside, I'm looking forward to another epic season finale.

MotoGP » de Puniet urges Suzuki to consider satellite entry


If you're developing a racebike these days, you need good data, so that the engineers can understand what the bike did. Good data requires good riders, and preferably more than one or two. They don't have the option at the moment, so they'll have to work with what they've got. Maybe they should have done a deal with IODA, and provided a better option than Aprilia did... I think Suzuki has a pretty handy rider in Aleix, and a Maverick has a lot of potential and outright talent. I don't think we should expect too much from it too soon. It will take time.
