MotoGP » Marquez moves to the top in FP3


Marquez is still travelling more easily than anyone else... behind his seeming ability to pull fast laps out of his back pocket, Rossi and Lorenzo still look good. Cal is quick, but less than metronomic, and the others have softer tyres to play with. Race distance has to be the question for them. Most interesting facts: less than 9 tenths covers the top 13, and only 1.4 seconds covering the top 19... It seems a while ago that we we watching CRTs dawdle around making MotoGP look ridiculous...this is a signifianct improvement.

MotoGP » Suzuki leads FP1 - Honda, Yamaha linger


The track is dirty, and they're conserving their tyres. Unfortunately, if everyone conserves tyres, the track won't be cleaned... It's an abrasive surface at the Argentina GP, made worse by dust and dirt...the extra hard tyre is the option to have here, but even they get chewed out on a dirty track. The factory riders are not really putting in the laps yet - just getting setup etc. The fun will come later...

MotoGP » Rossi ‘very upset’ after Argentina qualifying


cassyo: True fans should always prefer ....
Sorry cassyo, but you don't speak for me. :) haha I see nothing wrong with a rider that simply takes off because he's quicker, and peels off lap after lap of perfection like Stoner or Marquez - or Lorenzo or Pedrosa on their days, or like Doohan used to do. Equally, I see nothing wrong with Rossi or Marquez carving through the field, or Steady Eddy doing only what he needed to do to win...either way, I appreciate quality... Every rider wants to win, if they can... As long as its within the rules, and without dangerous moves, I'm good with it. If their bike has an advantage - good for them. If they chose a better tyre - same. If their contract says they get the best tyre every time - like Doohan and Rossi (early), not so much - but they still need skill to take advantage of it, so be it. I might not be quite as lavish with praise for it, but I respect the result.

MotoGP » Ezpeleta outlines 2017 MotoGP proposals


No problem for Honda, Yamaha, Ducati, Suzuki, Tech3, LCR, MarcVDS and Pramac. A little more complicated for KTM and Aprilia, and then you'd have to ask...where does it leave Forward Racing? ... Avintia? Aspar? AB? Ioda? Are they forced to play Musical Manufacturers? Overall though, it's encouraging. KTM will need some concessions, otherwise it seems highly unlikely that they can ever develop their package to a point that competes with the front runners. I hope they can. All up, it seems Dorna is at least making some sense, so let's be grateful for the progress. Now, we just have to hope that Michelin delivers!

MotoGP » MotoGP Argentina - Free Practice (2) Results


Nice work from Aleix, and encouraging for Suzuki overall, but the times still have plenty more to come down. They're still a second off last year's qualifying. Hopefully, the track is getting cleaner, and tomorrow the fun will really begin. The 2 class tyre situation really is silly on a track like this...I'm already looking forward to next year, when the silliness ends, and we're only into the third round... I hope we get a better idea who is really on the pace in FP3.
