MotoGP » Jack Miller tipped for the top


Zambooni: I watched the same press conference yesterday live on MotoGP site but I didn't get the same impression about the comments that the reporters are hinting about (direct step up into MotoGP). ... We will see where Miller lands next year most likely within a month. ...
Haven't watched the press conf (and probably won't now), but reading between the lines of the riders' comments, I suspected that's what they were doing. This story has more to go, but whether he goes to Moto2 or MotoGP / OC Honda, he still has a year or so more learning before we really see his potential. Based on last year and this, he is very promising.

MotoGP » ‘Somebody must stop this!’ - rivals talk Marquez domination


No doubt, the tyres suit the Honda better than the other bikes this year...but wait...Bradl has basically the same bike and tyres (albeit with a smaller support team), and Bautista's is very similar too. Sorry conspiracy theorists, but the biggest difference is in Marquez's corner entry technique. It's helped by the way the tyre works with the suspension, but there is no real-time electronic assistance involved. Mostly, it's down to (his) rider feel - brakes, grip and point of balance. His race management is on another level too. e.g. Sachsenring - bike change, front slot on the pit lane exit, hole shot from the pit exit group, setting the pace for the group, gap management...and so on. If he keeps winning because he's riding better than everyone else, more power to him. His dominance will end when someone else develops a new counter strategy.

MotoGP » Marquez: 'New' Indy less suited to Honda


We've heard this line before. Marc talking down his prospects compared to his main rivals...let's wait and see. If the Honda was disadvantaged by more flowing, higher speed corners, it wouldn't perform so well at Philip Island... Obviously, flowing bends don't help him exploit his corner entry weapon, but he's not exactly a "one-trick pony"... Anyway, I hope the Yams get enough help from the circuit to make the race closer. Good luck to all of them!
