MotoGP » Smith eyes top satellite kudos in Texas


Insidejob: He, like Cal, has the bike to podium with. It's time he upped his aspirations.
He's reverted to PR speak.... with good reason. Can you imagine how well it would be received on here if he said "I'm going to go for the podium this weekend..." If he says it, he'd be accused of not having anything to back it up (fair enough, except for the level of vitriol he'd get). If he said it and did it, they'd cry foul conspiracy because better riders had "problems"...like at PI. If he said it and didn't make the podium they'd only be happy with his immediate execution. No doubt he has the aspirations...he's just been coached not to voice them to the idiot public. Good luck to Cal and Bradders.

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


On the plus side, Stoner keeps his record of being the only rider ever to win at every track he raced at in the premier class over his career. The only current rider able to equal that record (and likely to) is Marquez. I couldn't see Stoner coming back (without full preparation) and competing over race distance, and more so now that the field is more competitive down the order. It's better to use a test rider or an up-and-comer with a mindset that is hungry to impress, or toe the company line (a la Jonathan Rea riding Stoner's bike under instructions to "have fun, but don't crash it or spend an engine").

MotoGP » Marquez: I want to put Qatar behind us

Don't Live In Past! Live in Present and Present Is Vr Dominance! :)
What rubbish... VR won fair and square in Qatar, but he was hardly dominant.... His practice race pace was on par with Marquez, but his fastest laps were slightly back level... He chose the hard tyre for the race, and that proved decisive, but mainly because Marquez made a mistake... Without a doubt, it was a great race by Rossi, but if you think he dominated, you need to stop smoking whatever it is you're smoking. Sorry, but there's so much rubbish written about VR on here.

MotoGP » ‘All concessions’ continue in MotoGP 2016


The only reason they need concessions is the relatively recent "engine freeze" rule....which significantly favours the leading manufacturers. I agree with the concessions on the number of engines available, and the engine freeze, but the two tier tyre rule (hard-medium versus medium-soft) is stupid. Likewise having two separate fuel allocations. One step forwards, two steps back...

MotoGP » Rossi: One of my best ever wins


Well, all in all, that was a spectacular race, and a really great ride by Rossi. Put simply, he made a better tyre choice than the other factory riders. However, due to the stupid CRT hangover tyre rules, the Ducati riders didn't have that option available, and it turned out to be the one to run with...pity. Also, it's hard to know whether the Ducati "power advantage" down the straight is due to an extra squirt of fuel, better software, or actual apples for apples engine superiority. That's a pity too. Even as a Ducati fan, I want to see them compete and win on merit. Allow the extra engines for a period to sort out their bike, and leave it at that. The other "concessions" are stupid. Anyway, back to the riders...Rossi and Dovi had a great battle, and props to both of them. Great start to the season.

MotoGP » Rossi: One of my best ever wins


Codger: Part of my post from March 20th "Unless things change dramatically in the run up to the race then Dovi has got this one. Rossi will push him, Marc will show the vulnerability that he showed in the second part of last season." I got 17 'disagrees'....things did change dramatically though. The Yamahas fared better than we all thought.
And apparently, a seer.... Although IIRC, you more or less dared people to disagree with you...on this site, that's just click bait.
