MotoGP » New engine for Marquez, Pedrosa


rdm1: HRC doing what they think fixes everthing throwing money at the problem hope it works for dani more than mm.
Why all the negative towards Honda? Since the last test in Valencia, they obviously knew they still had issues so they have worked on this and updated the engine. Exactly what every other manufacturer would do. Some may focus on chassis, others on engines, what's the big deal?

MotoGP » Honda, FIM won’t release Rossi-Marquez clash data


DK44: HRC vice president Shuhei Nakamoto declared: “The data from Marc's bike shows that even though he was picking up the bike trying to avoid contact with Valentino" Whether you believe Rossi kicked him or not the video evidence indisputably shows this to be untrue at the time of the incident. Marquez clearly leans his bike into Rossi. He picked up his bike before contact but he initiated contact right before he went down.
Shouldn't have been out at the edge of the track in the first place. You are missing the point somewhat.....

Blazin: 10,820 fans at Losail in Qatar on MotoGP race day. Woweee! WTF is Losail doing on the MotoGP calendar?
Seriously! I reckon it all comes down to how much $ the track brings. May not bring 100k average Joes, but several oil-money princes come by, you're set. I heard these monstrous generators that powers the lights feed directly off of the oil that's underneath the track.
Most riders do it for the fans. Some low life riders collaborate to prevent another rider from winning. DORNA, based on spectator numbers, do it for the oil money.
Listen to yourself ffs. Get a grip.......

MotoGP » Rossi: Disappointment after Valencia 'very big'


TrueFan: He sill hasn't figured it out. He was in a one on one fight to the end with Lorenzo. You never win a battle by starting a second war, like he did by making stupid claims to the press in Sepang about Marquez... Possible upside? not much, maybe just a bit of confusion. Possible downside? Marquez might come gunning for him. He did. Pretty obvious. That's why I have no sympathy for Rossi. He thought he could get away with it. Was Marquez "playing with him" in Phillip Island? Who cares. He can slow down for whatever reason. If Rossi is behind him, he has to pass him. Before Sepang, I still thought Rossi would win the championship. He only had to finish in front of Lorenzo once, maybe twice. I hoped he would. After I read what I felt were slanderous comments from him, I thought he'd lost the plot, and had no hope of winning. He just wasn't up to it.
Well said, absolutely spot on....

Blazin: Record attendances, thanks to Valentino Rossi. Without Vale, MotoGP was sunk and may yet sink again with the incompetent and disgraceful management of the sport since Philip Island last year. DORNA, as of today, have changed the penalty rules, so Rossi would not have had to start from the back of the grid at Valencia. Too late from the incompetents as they robbed all MotoGP fans of a grand finale. BUT from DORNA's perspective, they got what they really wanted, a Spanish champion, by collaboratively cheating the public. FORZA VR46
Get your facts right. The change in the penalty points system actually benefit Rossi moving into 2016 as the points he has have mostly been annulled. It wouldn't have made any difference to the penalty in Valencia. If you weren't so biased and stopped blaming others for the actions of your hero, you may actually get your facts right

Harris27: Maybe when he finally retires, we will lose all the "fans" that only watch because of him and not because of the sport...
Take a running jump mate. I'm a motorcyclist who's been following GP racing for over 30 years and before Valentino Rossi came along it was a minority sport, dying on it's feet. He brought excitement and glamour and charisma and the crowds followed. He has singlehandedly made MotoGP what it is today and when he retires I for one will still be riding my bike but I won't be following the antics of the discredited MotoGP circus any more. Might go back to WSB or might ride my bike a bit more. "not because of the sport" - what nonsense!.
Bye then... Spot-on
