MotoGP » Rossi, Yamaha confirm two-year deal


Never any doubts on Rossi's ability or determination. Good move by Yamaha to re-up Rossi for 2yrs. Honestly I've been surprised on how well he's done this year but granted it would have been nice to see a win by now. However, I think that no one expected the Honda to be this good (probably HRC figured) especially with Marquez on board. That aside I think that Rossi and Yamaha need to make additional changes to reduce that gap to Honda even more. Which I think they can. Congrats Rossi for all the great races and for those to come.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Marquez was much faster


Without a doubt Rossi is on a different level than Dovi. Plus Dovi should thank Rossi for getting Ducati's heads out of the sand and to develop a program to improve that pig. Granted they're still a distance away from the top two factories ( but I think Gigi is going in the right direction). Plus add in the concessions given to Ducati this year and comparing Rossi's two years on the Ducati he's far better than Dovi. Don't get me wrong Dovi is a good rider but Rossi is a great rider.

MotoGP » Max Biaggi back on track with Aprilia


Sounds like Biaggi is having fun. While I think it would be fantastic to see him back paired with a young rising star I don't think he's interested at this point but you never know as it depends on many factors especially with regards to family. Schwantz is too old at this point for anything other than a parade lap on a modern GP bike. Bayliss is still quite fast and would probaby still be competitive at the WSB level but GP is different plus with his allegiance to Ducati I don't think he'd ride for Aprilia.

MotoGP » Dall'Igna: New engine ‘first step’ for 2015 Ducati


Smartest thing Ducati has done in the last year is hire Gigi he did a great job at Aprilia and appears to be steering the Ducati ship in the right direction. But changes haven't come fast enough from Ducati R&D. You would have thought by now with the VW/Audi bank roll they'd step that up. Engine dynamics along with chassis-suspension interaction seem to be a significant problem. Now if they make the engine as they say smaller, more flexible to chassis interaction maybe they'll work better. In terms of riders it makes sense to keep Dovi and get rid of Cal. I'd bring up Crazy Joe to the factory team unless they could land Jlo or Pedrosa which I think wouldn't be possible.

MotoGP » ‘Scared’ Lorenzo haunted by Assen injury


Someone made an interesting comment that Jlo may be figuring he's out of any possible championship so why push in these conditions and possibly get hurt. While I'm sure this type of tactic may not help his negotiations it makes some sense. I'm sure if the next race is dry he'll make more of an effort. I don't buy the theory that Marquez is in Jlo's head because he never seemed to be that fragile of a racer. Now the fisherman that's a different story.

MotoGP » ‘Scared’ Lorenzo haunted by Assen injury


Some say Jlo should go to another team. I think that Honda will keep Pedrosa as they have a #1 and top 3 type rider. Is Dovi's contract up this year? I'd guess with his current position that Ducati whould like to keep him another 2 years. As Cal hasn't lived up to his contract I could see them cutting bait. Would Jlo have the nads to go to Ducati who appears to be improving slowly. I'd say no unless he just want's to cash in.So other than resigning with Yamaha I'd think that Suzuki would be the best spot. He'd be #1 rider and have a built in excuse if they don't do well plus I'm sure he could get a good pay day from them.
