MotoGP » ‘Happy’ Rossi heads to Sachsenring


Grendle the thing you have to consider is that Rossi is reducing the gap to Marquez which he's doing slowly. Last year he was on average over 4 seconds slower than the front runner now he's 1-2 seconds or less depending on the track. As that gap seems to be reducing I think it's possible for Rossi, Pedro and Jlo to start challenging Marquez. But as Marquez has a huge gap in points it's highly unlikely for anyone to catch him this year unless he gets seriously injured and misses 3-4 races. If Rossi and Yamaha can continue to reduce the gap to Marquez and his Honda then we should strart seeing some really interesting races. But as we all know Honda doesn't sit around (at least lately) to wait for other marks to catch up.

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 » 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 » Rossi, Yamaha confirm two-year deal


Vilas I'd agree with your comment but I think if I were Yamaha I'd ask Rossi to provide pointers on redoing the production R1. While it's a nice bike it needs to go on a serious diet with improvement to engine performance.The chassis (other than weight) and suspension are decent. Out of the 4 Japanese liter bikes it's probably #3 or 4. But back to Rossi, great news and it's a no-brainer for Yamaha to resign him for all the obvious reasons.

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.
