MotoGP » Rossi: Finally I can beat Marquez!


That's more like it! Rossi made a good race, especially after crashing in practice. His skills haven't diminished as he's grown older, but injuries tend to have a bigger effect... He had to fight through some riders, including Marquez after Marquez had already passed him...it was a good ride, all things considered. And yes, he beat the invincible Marquez! Unfortunately, for the seven races left, Marc might still win a few of them...

MotoGP » Brno MotoGP test times - Monday (5pm)


You'll find that Pol and Bradders have much closer to factory kit than that, but without all the mid-season upgrades (exhaust etc). Pol likely gets upgrades ahead of Bradley now, because his contract is with Yamaha. Engines are most likely the same. Data analyst support is less with a sat team, and data sharing benefits the factory riders most. Software upgrades almost certainly favour JLO/VR, then Pol, then Brad... Similar with Bradl and Bautista. Engine will be very, very close to factory riders. There will be more differences elsewhere, especially for Bautista, and any running gear data that he gets from the other Honda teams won't be as useful to him, while the factory team could probably recalibrate data from him to get limited use. As for Yamaha, software upgrades will favour Marquez/Pedro, then Bradl/Bautista equally (neither has a direct contract AFAIK).

MotoGP » MotoGP Czech Republic - Race Results


PorkPie: ... PS I did find it a bit odd how Crazy Joe banged Marc a few times and then let Rossi straight past, 24 hours after getting the tow, thanks a bunch Marc must have thought. ...
Marc made the first contact. Looked like he was braking deep into the corner, and let the brakes off a bit quick, which made the bike wobble into Ionnone. Looked worse than it was, and then they made contact twice more through the next couple of corners, like they did in Moto2 more than a few times...anyway, he offered to buy him dinner....racing favour? probably not...

MotoGP » Combative Iannone matches MotoGP best


Iannone rode a great race. He fought to stay at the front for as long as possible, then had a great battle with Marquez for half a lap as he fell back. It reminded me of their Moto2 fights. They banged fairings a few times, but they weren't dangerous - Marquez released his brakes in the corner a bit roughly, and the bike went sideways, but with little lateral momentum - and they touched agin in the next couple of corners...looked more spectacular than it would have been for these guys. He had a fantastic battle with Dovi, and they both fought hard and fair... Great ride. I really hope next year's Ducati is more competitive - as in - goes around corners better...Both Ionnone and Dovi have more talent than fifth and sixth suggests.
