MotoGP » Yamaha: We have two riders that can beat Marc

I think the rider would beat Marquez is actually his team mate Pedrosa. But Pedrosa will not going to beat Marquez on Honda. He need to ride Ducati to make it happened. Ducati has the extra spin and punch that Pedrosa need to beat his country men. I believe Pedrosa is as good as Stoner on Ducati. While Ducati need Pedrosa to end their tyres suffering. Ducati, Pedrosa and Michelin would get them additional 5 seconds race lead. Doesn't matter if Marquez even able to touch his ears on the road, it will not cut it. Then both Yamaha men can beat Marquez. Probably, on Ducati, Pedrosa finally has a real chances to win a title similar to Carlos Checa of SBK on Ducati.

MotoGP » Honda, Yamaha discuss Ducati advantages

Ducati and Suzuki are at disadvantages since their bike require thicker rubber than Honda and Yamaha. When BS made a thinner rubber for all bikes (2008), Ducati and Suzuki lost their performances quite a lots. Despite additional 4 liters extra fuels(2014), it can't give a stability needed at the end of the race when the wear rate were too high for Ducati and Suzuki. All those bike where not have the same engine design. Each manufacture should've a custom tire design that match the wear rate. But the tire rules has take that advantages from them and winning a title will be far from reach. They don't have money to use exotic lighter material which is too expensive to reduce the tire wear rate. Go figure...

MotoGP » Petrucci confirmed to ride ex-Crutchlow Ducati

Realist:You're giving him too much credit.
Those are the lesson to be learnt. CC has lost the opportunity become the Modern Brit MotoGP World Champion when ignoring the best package which is very hard to come by. The top riders that possessed multi-WC titles basically has 1% or 2% extra skills and tactics as advantages and maintaining them on whatever package they've. They seem had a good ride because they earned it with those smart thinking. More factory want rider like those to ride their best bike. Contract based sport is opportunist game. How good your plans to win races? Do you have plan A, B or C to gain your race positions? I can't wait the season started to see what Petrucci is made off. Has Petrucci gain experiences and tactics from race battles at the lower end?

MotoGP » Petrucci confirmed to ride ex-Crutchlow Ducati

The race director has show enough coverage CC beat all 4 names you've mentioned in race battles. That is not the issue. His bike is perfect, his team is ready, his talent is sufficient, but his mindset is still like you thinking only about his bike was not as good as the factory bike. The package is ready, but his mindset are not. Only smarter riders win titles...

MotoGP » Bradl unimpressed by Kayaba suspension

@Motojunky It's not about easy. It's a necessity to get your side of package having your own option with a different advantages. With Kayaba or any other different brand is an open opportunity to make the component customize to your need that fit to your skills. Bradl already known how Ohlins feel like. There is time he wish his Ohlins could be better than others in some races. Why not put that idea of "better Ohlins" into Kayaba new setting. So, nobody else has that advantages. So far he stuck in middle of something even with factory version Honda in previous seasons. He seem like don't know what to do to match the Aliens paces. Why not turn his new Kayaba into his "Kalex factor" like he used to in his Moto2 days?

MotoGP » Petrucci confirmed to ride ex-Crutchlow Ducati

It seem Petrucci has more potential than Crutchlow on Ducati. He show the step up progress and we will see if he the real deal when the season started. Despite Crutchlow has more talents to be harvested, he is slow in his mindset department. CC could've win a MotoGP title in 2013, but he didn't realized he had the best package compare to the other Yamaha riders including in the factory team. While Petrucci is very straight forward to be understand. He is consistently adaptive to his package. He will be following Iannone foot steps soon enough.

MotoGP » Lorenzo unhappy at Rossi tow

Nothing new about Lorenzo's bitterness on Rossi's pole from a tow. It's his mind game how he know best to take it to Rossi on the race day. I think Lorenzo should do it more often through the season. The problem is Marquez always upset their race rhythms. So, the rivalry doesn't come into fruition during a race battle. A new mind game is needed to include Marquez in it. I think Marquez only cover the 1st part of the race while Pedrosa will be the dark horse for the 2nd part of the race. If Marquez survive the 2nd part of the race, it become a different race all together. So, Lorenzo need the tyre that last very long or make the tyre last longer than usual. That mean he need to put his body weight somewhere else apart from the bike for the whole race.

MotoGP » Stoner completes two-day Honda test at Motegi

samas: If memory serves me right 2011 and 2012 tests prior to the start of 2012 season were all set by Casey he set a blistering pace, then Dorna changed bike weight or something and Honda suffered the most, front wheel chatter I believe. Why did they change everything at the last moment???????. Just a thought.
To see if he could ride around any issue and bend the laws of physics like his fans claim. Go figure...he couldn't and retired instead! Just a thought.
He did help Honda fix it when he return from Injury and keep improving the bike behind the scene when he retired. His retirement also solved the problem Mixed Classes by eliminating the stupid CRT from the MotoGP premier class. He has contributed a massive changes to the sport he loved. Likely, he need to retire to make it happened. It seem easy for engineers working with Stoner when he trim out a bad design on a new bike than adding Dorna's bike weight.
