MotoGP » Espargaro: We are really f**ked in that aspect!

The problem is ducati need three dry wins to lose the softer tyre, that's is unlikely to happen soon. l mean Yamaha barely got three dry wins last year, so l can see Ducati will keep the concessions till the end of the season. They already use 22 litres of fuel so losing the 24 wont affect them. I think Espargaro is right, the non-Ducati satellites are the big losers in all this.

MotoGP » Espargaro: We are really f**ked in that aspect!

Kwack636R: Ducati were smart by moving to the open/'factory 2' rules so they could develop the bike, without that they would be nowhere. There was nothing to stop Honda and Yamaha doing the same (though clearly they wouldn't) - Ducati saw a chance for progress and they took it. I agree the soft tyre rule is pants, but it is a small sacrifice to make for seeing the Ducati's competitive again. Next year it'll be as level a playing field as we're going to see and at least the 'open' rules have brought more factories back to the grid.
I understand ducati needed help to work on the bike but if they wanted to go open they should have been made to run the open software like everyone else in the open class. It just seems like too many concessions.

MotoGP » Marquez: No room for error in pole shootout

Marquez is looking like he'll take 12 in a row this year. No matter how many soft tyres are there he has no problem getting to the front row, while his rivals are pushed back down the grid. On the other hand his starts tend to be terrible, even from pole he'll very rarely go first into the first corner, so even if he takes pole today hopefully a ducati or two will get in front of him at the start and make things more interesting, cause so far it's looking like an easy win for Marquez .

MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo - Q&A

The way I see it if one of the Yamahas (yes I've written Pedrosa off) is to really challenge Marquez for the title, then they need to beat Marquez in Qatar. It's as simple as that. They can't be waiting to go to tracks they like, or waiting for upgrades or waiting for Marquez to have a bad day, they need to beat him in Qatar or else it will be another 10 a row. Say Marquez wins in Qatar and Lorenzo is 2nd. In the American tracks I can only see Marquez winning and in particular in Austin Pedrosa will probably be second as that track is 100% honda. In Argentina say Lorenzo is second ( that's a big ask). By the time they get to Jerez he's already 20 points behind Marquez, that's if the ducatis dont' get in the way and take some more points from him at some tracks. Such a lead will only increase Marquez's confidence and demoralize the competition. That's why I think I win in Qatar will be mentally important for both the winner and the loser, and could decide a lot of the championship

MotoGP » POLL: Who will win the 2015 Qatar MotoGP?

Very hard to decide... I think it''ll be an interesting race because with the dampness the pace won't be too hot and there won't be much tyre degradation so I expect the Ducatis will be there and some satellites too hanging with the front group. For the win I'm going with Marquez but it's possible one of the Yamahas will get on the top step here, it's not the best track for the Hondas, especially for Pedrosa who always struggles here and I think will finish off the podium.
