MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo 'strong', 'careful' with Marquez


I agree that at this point it's too close to call but I wouldn't count out Rossi or say it's impossible. I recall not too long ago when he was at Ducati that the haters were calling for his head and saying the old man should retire as he's finished. I also recall when he came back to Yamaha the haters and doubters said he's too old and will never be on the podium again, but he was and they said he'll never win a race again, but he did. Then they said, well okay he may be on the podium once in awhile and maybe even win a race but he'll never beat Lorenzo or Marquez, but he has. So when you say he won't win the championship, I say he has a good chance and the old dog may just surprise you again. Even if he doesn't win the championship I thank Rossi for making Motogp interesting again and for putting many haters in the looney bin where they belong.

MotoGP » MotoGP Germany - Free Practice (2) Results


Rossi was close in the first practice and a little further back in the second practice. But like someone noted it was probably due to testing something or tire choice. That is the reason for practice to get it right for qualifying and more importantly the race. Rossi is historically not great at practice and qualifying pace so I'm not worried. However, Rossi has always shown even if he doesn't qualify well he's usually ready for the race. Agree with the comment stop trying to pick the race winner from practice or qualifying. All this said while it's always nice to win the main thing for Rossi is to end the race ahead of Jlo.

MotoGP » Rossi unconcerned by software freeze, ‘curious’ for 2016


Good point by Rossi for next year but also for this year. If your a factory team that depends on making constant changes to the ECU then you can have problems. An the opposite would also be true, if your team doesn't make changes to the ECU programming then you won't be impacted much if at all by the ECU freeze. As fans we're not told by riders or team managers the extent of the behind the scenes working so we'll only know by the results. If a team suddenly starts dropping in places in races more so than usual then that may be ECU issues. But as factory teams are smart and have had time to make adjustments knowing the freeze was coming I'd guess we won't see much of a change for this season.

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo 'strong', 'careful' with Marquez


Rocstar your message insinuates that the incident at Assen was Rossi's fault when it was the overaggressive Marquez who has been doing these types of dangerous maneuvers whether at the back of the pack or fighting for a lead. As Marquez is the current star of motogp and Honda he has been given much too much leniency for his actions without repercussion. I'd also add that Marquez is delusional, like his fans, that he was not at fault. But I do agree that as he acts recklessly that Rossi and others should be careful. But Motogp officials should penalize him for his actions and should start by talking to him and his team that if continues in this manner he's going to likely hurt someone else or less likely himself.

MotoGP » Official: Marco Melandri splits from Aprilia


Realist good points. But I'm sure they could find someone else. I know that his past experience with Yamaha, knowledge of tracks and decent success in WSB will make him a top contender. But his attitude and wild tactics are suspect. I would really like to see Hayes from MotoAmerica get a shot but his age and lack of WSB track experience would eliminate him from consideration. Someone mentioned Hayes teammate which could be a #2 seat. Regardless of who are the team riders next year they'll have competitive bikes. And as it's been all green for WSB they need more competition to make it interesting again. Wierd how WSB was more interesting for quite awhile compared to Motogp but seems like the pendulum has swung back to GPs.

MotoGP » Official: Marco Melandri splits from Aprilia


Felt bad when Melandri was at Ducati in MGP and they were sending him to see as psychiatrist blaming him for the faults of that POS. But when he acted like a baby in WSB I lost respect and his showing now with Aprilia in MGP reinforces that feeling for him. Sad to hear that Yamaha is considering him for the R1 return to supers next year. Many other riders should be considered before him. I'd rather see someone like Hayden get a shot in WSB on the R1 but his association with Honda may limit that. He should realize that his Motogp days are at an end.

MotoGP » Pedrosa: It was a day to forget


I agree with Realist that as the rider style dictate various setup and choices in parts such as chassis and swingarm stiffness as well as suspension setup and even tire choices. It makes sense that a newer rider to the series use base setup from more veteran teammates but I'm sure as they get comfortable and esp if they're style of riding is different then the the general items and setup become different. But I'm sure keeping an eye on how well a teammate is doing and the potential causes of those successes even if at various corners of a track. But a lot depends on relationships with teammates and team rules on that stuff.

MotoGP » Pedrosa: It was a day to forget


Prof X but isn't that the case in every team. They pay more attention to the top dog unless both dogs are very similar in chance of winning which is the case at Yamaha at the moment. HRC feels that Marquez is there best bet hence the added attention to have him win. Howeve, if the #2 rider in the team wants to be #1 they need to beat the #1 rider consistantly.
