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 » ‘Scared’ Lorenzo haunted by Assen injury


What a ridiculous comment someone made that Yamaha should get rid of Rossi for Aleix. Let's consider this a 7 time MotoGP/500 Champion Legend with millions of followers and tons of sponsors bending over backwards to get their name associated to his, plus he's currently #2 in the championhip and is almost always on the podium to be replaced by fairly fast kid with no championships. Also, Rossi in the last few races have reduced his gap to Marquez. If you worked for Yamaha and suggested such you'd be laughed out of the office then fired. Now if Yamaha couldn't come to financial grips with Jlo then getting one of the Espargaro brothers as a replacement could be understood.

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.

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.

MotoGP » ‘Scared’ Lorenzo haunted by Assen injury


I'm not a Lorenzo fan but I appreciate his honesty to admit fear as most wouldn't to avoid looking weak. It's obvious that Lorenzo is struggling. Some say it's due to Marquez's results which to a degree may be true but it's probably more due to lack of confidence. Rossi had to endure that lack of confidence when he was at Ducati due in part to his serious injury, loss of a friend and no confidence in the bike. While Lorenzo has issues I don't think he's lost talent or ability. As he regains his confidence he'll be back to challenge.

MotoGP » Assen MotoGP - Full Qualifying Results


Wow what bad luck. This is basically gifting the win to Marquez unless Pedrosa can give him run but unfortunately he's not tough enough to really challenge Marquez. As the soft tire guys fall back in the first couple of laps that will give the Honda boys clear sailing. Even if Rossi gets a good start being in 4th row isn't good. However if he has a good pace you never know but definitely has a very steep hill to climb. Dorna should really consider getting rid of this soft tire for the open class during qualifying. Because it's putting guys in or near the front that shouldn't be there.
