MotoGP » Three riders for factory Ducati team?


Tetley and Jed thanks for the clarification. Thought it was upto Ducati but if Cal had the contract for next year and it was his choice to move to another team then it makes sense why Ducati is considering a 3rd rider for the factory team. In terms of Crazy Joe I think it would be good for him to be considered a factory team rider but I think the spec of his bike is already very close to that of the factory boys. While I'm sure his satellite team provides its data to Ducati having the rider on the factory probably makes that data collection quicker. I think that Gigi will help improve the bike for next season but they have such a big gap I'd expect a little improvement compared to their current race finishes but don't think they'll compete against the factory Yams or Hondas yet. 2016 rules should help teams like Ducati or Suzuki.

MotoGP » Mixed feelings for Rossi at mid-point of 2014


I agree, based on Rossi's pace at other races this season this race was an anomaly not the norm. Better to finish 4th than crash out and get no points.

Evolution: i think mixed conditions really upset his rythm but also in these conditions its all about which ryder is willing to take more risk and clearly jorge,marc and dani are more brave in this race becoz after jorge passed vale his crew show him in pit board to ride for points and clearly vale slowed down becoz vale knows his rivals are clearly much stronger than him in this track but people who are saying rossi is back to his 2013 form they are wrong becoz clearly he is very strong in braking jorge is able to overtake him in corner which was damp so rossi was not confident in damp areas of the track and he is clearly loosing times becoz of that areas.

MotoGP » Mixed feelings for Rossi at mid-point of 2014


Kris I agree the show continues to get worse every race. I thought for a short while that maybe Pedrosa, Rossi and JLo coud start challenging Marquez but at this point it seems the Honda esp Marquez's is too much for this field unless Marquez crashes during a race which the electronics don't let him. Hopefully the next race will be better as this continued domination will likely drive people away from watching unless you're a die hard fan or Marquez fan.

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


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.
