MotoGP » Michelin: ‘Elbow’ style to stay in 2016


JedPB67: ...I'd say Bradl brought this extreme elbow down style to MotoGP when he arrived in 2012.
At times, Bradl is pretty much shoulder down! Unfortunately, his results didn't quite back up his potential.
Brain: What im waiting to here is if the front tire is going to allow the acrobatic moves under braking that Marquez has perfected.
Yes, we look forward to that prospect! At least we have this year to savour...

MotoGP » Petrucci continues to impress Pramac


It's a great pity that Petrucci and Hernandez - and for that matter Barbera too - aren't getting GP15s. They are all riding well, and would go better on proper satellite Ducatis. Also, the factory misses out on a heap of useful data to aid the ongoing development. There's no way that the GP15 is fully sorted yet, despite promising reports and lap times from the factory riders, and they need all the data they can get. Anyway, props to Danilo for a great start to his GP career!

MotoGP » Avintia’s seamless Ducati gearbox…


Barbera has performed brilliantly so far on the Avintia Ducati. Give him a GP15! The seamless shift doesn't fully account for the 1.3 second gap to next Open Class bike...maybe a couple of tenths at best. The rest? Who knows, but timing says he's done very well indeed. He's probably enjoying it again too, especially given the sad way the Kawasaki situation plowed along for Avintia...

F1 » Hamilton romps to Australian Grand Prix win


Wow...and people complain about MotoGP because only 4 bikes regularly share the podium! Doesn't look like I'll be watching too much F1 this year. Pity. Obviously, well done to Mercedes, you can hardly blame them for building the best car again this year,,,and Lewis, for not making any mistakes...but the local tiddly winks competition looks positively gripping in comparison!

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Scott Redding - Q&A


Last year was a stepping stone, Scott... Moto2 to Honda Proddy is less of a step in power than Honda Proddy to factory Honda...It doesn't matter how you go in the first couple of races, but you need to make your mark here, and early in the season. The competition is more intense than even last year. Good luck, but don't feel entitled to anything more than this chance. The rest is up to you!

MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’


More seriously though, Rossi didn't develop the Michelin tyres, but he did have exclusive access to the best, and the best choice. However, Stoner believes that Michelin screwed Rossi in 2006 with dud tyres at the end of the season, due to the nature of the crash he had...(and if Stoner made that observation, you can bet that Rossi would have too, since it cost him directly). Stoner also said that in 2006, LCR's contract with Michelin was such that Stoner had to ride whatever tyres Michelin chose - and they didn't even tell him what the compound or construction was - he wrote a chapter about it in his book "Crash Test Dummy". People are reading too much into Rossi's comments. He's a playful character...
