MotoGP » ‘Somebody must stop this!’ - rivals talk Marquez domination

Disagree with Hayden and Rossi that it's not boring because seeing only one rider win all the time is boring. And I also think that Marquez always winning does make all the other riders in the class look bad. I do think that Marquez's winning ways is mainly due to the Honda he's riding and he's able to exploit the advantage he has over other riders/bikes. As a Rossi fan I would like to see him be the first to beat Marquez but it won't be easy in his current form.

MotoGP » Yamaha working on seamless downshifts

I call BS on the Honda guy about not having specia electronics and even bigger BS on not wanting or using traction control. I blind person can see the advantages they've developed over the past 3-4 years. I'm positive if Marquez was on the Yamaha in the same period of time he's been with HRC in Mototgp he wouldn't be anywhere as dominant.

MotoGP » Rossi worried by Marquez, Pedrosa pace in wet

Rossi is notoriously a slow starter during practices and even in qualifying. So as long as he's near the front (1st or 2nd row) then he has a chance. But that said he needs to close the gap not only to the front rider (marquez) he needs to get up there with Lorenzo in the dry. As they say, you need to at least beat your teammate first. The first part of the Indy race was encouraging but Rossi needs to put a whole race where he's competitive from the first to last lap even if he only comes in 2nd as long as he's on the back wheel of the guy in front. Another thing I'd like to see in this race is guys not giving Marquez so much space and letting him through so easily.

Jimmy if you believe the Honda man that Marquez uses no or nearly no electronic aids and that they haven't found electronic and mechanical improvements to best their competition then I've got a bridge to sell you.

JimmyTheRealOne: So Marquez is NOT using the traction control at all? That would be amazing!! I didn't know you can be competitive on today's bikes with today's electronics without using all of its advantages.

MotoGP » Marquez: So difficult to win them all...

I think he meant how easy it's been to win not how difficult. But it's amazing how well that Honda works, plenty of power, preserves tires and is flexible at all types of tracks. Even with all these advantages you still need the skill to pull it off and Marquez has done it. But what does bother me is that most riders move aside just about to let him through and no one blocks him or tries to nudge him when he practically bulldozes his way through at times. He needs to be roughed up and even knocked down a few times for some humility. He thinks he's invincible and other riders treat him that way as well.

MotoGP » Rossi: Like Ron Haslam at the start!

Great start by Vale from the 2nd row and it was nice to see him fend off Dovi early in the race but as Marquez was moving up you knew it was a matter of time. As someone else noted it appeared that Rossi probably burnt his tires trying to get a lead and eventually had to fade back. But that said it would have been nice to see Rossi battle Jlo for 2nd. Nevertheless, I'd like to see Rossi push even harder without getting hurt of course. Besides Marquez just having a better motorcycle which he does he also does two things to give him advantage in turns, one he leans the bike further (thanks to Honda and it's amazing tech package) and he leans his body more making him be able to get a little more than others. That little more (and in some instances a lot more) have given him the 10 wins so far. About 1/2 this race was exciting than the other half was back to the same old stuff we've seen this entire season - BORING!!!

MotoGP » Rossi: Tracks that are difficult for me

For all that suggest or call for Rossi's retirement I'd like to smoke what you're smoking. Did Rossi lose confidence due to his past injury, friends death and two bad years with Ducati absolutely but did he lose his skill, ability and ambition/drive absolutely not. Has a new group of young, talented and hungry riders come into the Motogp yes. Has that top group of younger riders adapt quicker to changing technology that allow them to rider faster based on that technology yes. Has Rossi adapted as fast to the riding aids I think not as quick as the younger guys and is still a little less willing to trust that technology but has done a good job evenso. Nevertheless, Rossi has beat most of them with exception to Marquez. Granted Marquez is talented but I think his Honda is better than the Yamaha's especially this year. If Yamaha and Rossi can reduce that advantage further I think Rossi can compete and even beat Marquez. Put Marquez on lesser or equal bikes to all he wouldn't be as domin
