MotoGP » Lorenzo: It’s like tennis…

I think Jlo meant Motogp for him is like tennis in that it goes back and forth depending tires and track. As he noted his strengths are corner speed and acceleration. When the track and tires don't match his style he can't be as competitive. Rossi's style on the other hand is a bit of a hybrid as he has decent corner speed (not as good as JLo) but closer to the point and shoot. This hybrid style allows him to be a bit more consistent on most tracks. But just like most riders Rossi has some tracks that he favors over others. Marquez's style is probably a little more similar to Rossi's but leans his body more to allow slightly less or same lean of bike to gain more tire contact. As you've probably noticed Rossi has on occasion used a similar body lean (but not as extreme as Marquez).

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on

I looked at most of the messages on this thread and didn't see many comments noting that Marquez or Pedrosa didn't deserve the win. Yes some folks noted (like myself) noted factors that contributed to their 1st and 2nd places but they deserved those places 100%. Pedrosa had a nice pass around Rossi and it was fair and clean unlike his teammates usual passes on riders.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on

Realist agree about not getting upset at terming one brand having an advantage at one track over another. That happens based on strengths and weaknesses of the bike and track to your bike. But at this track I think the tires had a lot to do with it. My guess that the harder tire didn't work on the Yamaha as well as the soft but the harder compound gave the Honda's an edge. I guess this occurs at times the opposite way as well.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on

Even though it wasn't a win I give lots of credit to Rossi but it would have been nice to come in 2nd. It was obvious that the Honda's with the better tire choice and a little more top speed had the advantage all weekend. For a brief time when Rossi was moving up the field I thought maybe he can reach the front spot if Marquez was closer to pos 2 & 3 but then he pulled away before Rossi arrived near the front. But the main objective of staying in front of Lorenzo even if only for 3 points (over Jlo) was achieved by Rossi. In terms of the championship I think it's way too early for any predictions but Rossi has a good shot at it even though 13 points is not insurmountable by any means. That said, Rossi's current form is encouraging and I wouldn't bet against him.

MotoGP » Rossi satisfied despite slipping to seventh

Sandbagging that's funny. It's just Rossi being Rossi as he's methodical in his approach to developing his sensitivity to the tires and developing a setup that will work for the conditions and the race. Unlike Marquez's approach/mentallity is to top the boards all the time to show "I'm the man" and get in the minds of other riders that he's won the race before it starts.

MotoGP » Official: Marco Melandri splits from Aprilia

First Melandri shouldn't have been given the chance to be in the Motogp project for the way he treated his WSB team last year. Second, he should have been fired after the few first poor efforts instead of waiting half the season. And, lastly Yamaha should not give him a shot on the new R1 in WSB next year because if the results aren't good from the start will he pull an Aprilia GP effort on them. I'm sure there are many other deserving riders to get that opportunity.

WSBK » Rea puts championship thoughts aside to win race two

With a 5 plus race point advantage Rea can't loose the championship unless he misses more than half of the remaining 5 race events. Don't know the exact numbers but I'd guess as long as he gets 10 place or better per remaining race he'd win the championship. So what does that mean, basically the championship is done for this year. I guess the race would be for 2nd place which isn't that interesting is it? Would love to see someone other than a green rider win a race. Thought it would be a Ducati rider but not close enough. Where the heck is a Yamaha team when you need it. And can Honda build a new bike to compete in WSB. Is that too much to ask?
