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.

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’

As Julian Ryder would say, this is "purely academic" but here is the number of sub 1'56.000 laps the riders did in this Qatar test: Session1: Iannone:8 Dovi: 6 A Espargaro: 4 Lorenzo: 3 Marquez: 2 Pedrosa:1 Rossi: 1 Crutchlow:1 Smith: 1 Session 2: Marquez: 20 Dovi: 15 Iannone: 11 Lorenzo: 10 Rossi: 8 Pedrosa: 6 P Espargaro: 6 A Espargaro: 3 Crutchlow: 2 It's only testing but for a totally new bike Ducatis are looking strong, at least at this track.

MotoGP » Marquez: I know who my rivals are

GP15 is looking good, but we won't know its real pace over a whole race until Qatar. Marquez knows the ducatis are not going to contend for the title but might help him if they start getting on the podium and taking points from the other three. Pedrosa already had trouble shaking Dovi off at some tracks last year, this year he might finish behind him some times. The yamahas too at some tracks...l think if the Ducatis really come join into play it will benefit Marquez, but we don't know what they're going to be like yet, let's see if they do race simulations tonight.

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Sam Lowes - Q&A

Yearby yes that's what a mean, it is a 'weak' grid in moto2, l agree since the last of the top Marquez generation left , Espargaro and Redding, but that was at the end of 2013. What l mean is because the talent level is not so high this year there is a window for riders like lowes to get results and stand out if they are hoping to ever get a GP ride, before your Quartararos and Bastianinis arrive in the class and before Marquez and Rins start getting stronger.
