MotoGP » Moto3: Estrella protest against Miller, Kent rejected


Marc Marquez “I don't know the decision of Race Direction, but Miller was really aggressive, but if Race Direction he is able to do it I think my brother has enough potential and enough body to do it too.” Marc should leave it to the officials to comment on this. His pass on Lorenzo at Jerez last year was well over the line, t-boning Lorenzo off to the edge of the track - and if Marquez had not bounced off Lorenzo, he would have run off track himself. He wasn't penalised for that, and Lorenzo didn't make a protest about it. In fact, the 4 points MM profitted turned out to be the difference between winning the championship last year and not winning. You can't have it both ways. The protest smacks of an entitlement mentality. It's ok for us to dish it out, but don't serve it back... There were a couple of aggressive moves, but there is a championship on the line, and the moves were not reckless. Contact was only light. On to Valencia...

MotoGP » Rossi: Mistake to leave Yamaha over No.1 status


SkyWilk: What about hanking Lorenzo?He let Rossi come back, he could have behaved like a child, like Rossi did, yet, he welcomed him back, and isn't making a fuss even when he is beaten.
Exactly. I think Rossi learned a valuable life lesson from Lorenzo, and has developed quite a profound respect for him as a result. You will never hear VR say a bad word about Lorenzo these days. It's a pity that some of his more blinkered fans completely ignore that part of the story.

MotoGP » Marquez: Pressure has eased for record bid at Valencia


Although I'm not so interested in the "record", it was an emphatic win by Marquez after the problems he's had in recent races, and even more so after a start that was something less than you'd hope for from pole. Rossi looked like he could pull away once he got to the front, but Marquez stalked him and worked out where and when to make his move. After the start, he put in a flawless ride, and deserved to win.

MotoGP » 'One Euro' wire cost Crutchlow chance of fourth


Up until the bike failed, Cal had put in a very good race. He's the one being interviewed, and he's entitled to give the answers that he thinks best apply. There seems to be some on here that prefer the PR-speak to a rider's best assessment of their performance. PR-speak can be amusing, or even entertaining, but it almost never provides any insight into what happened on the track. For that you need riders that are prepared to tell it like it is - even if it has the odd personal distortion of "I felt like I could have..."

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


Great ride by Rossi. He looked really comfortable for most of the race, and even though Marquez had something extra, it wasn't much. I didn't expect Rossi to make the podium, so whatever he found in the morning warmup, it made a huge difference. Great ride. There's still a slim chance Lorenzo could take second with a win in Valencia, but only if Rossi finshes 4th or worse. My money is on Rossi from here.

MotoGP » Lack of fitness cost me in race, says Lorenzo


RossL: I really don't think it is fair to criticise Lorenzo for blaming his fitness here. He is actually saying that it is basically his own fault that he couldn't keep up with Rossi and Marquez, and is suggesting what he can do to improve. Doesn't sound like making excuses to me. ...
I agree with you. He was simply telling it like it is. "it's not the bike, it's me" What kind of an excuse is that? He could have easily said that he made a mistake with front tyre selection, given that the two guys ahead of him went for the softer option...that would have been an excuse.

MotoGP » Moto3: Vazquez wins - Miller, Marquez slug it out at Sepang


Great win by Vasquez, especially considering tha he still doesn't have a ride for next year. Miller showed his class to. Hard fought to the very end, and he's still in the championship - anything could happen in Valencia. Miller might surprise a few people who think he's been picked for his passport alone. He seems to have plenty of talent. Great ride by Danny Kent too...
