MotoGP » Marquez equals Ago record with third win from pole


All of Agostini's "records" are irrelevant as he was on a 4 (& 3 cylinder) bike racing Manx Nortons(1 cylinder)for most of his career. Nobody seemed to mind when Rossi was dominating with a far superior buke than anyone else.
1. Nobody forced Nortons to do ****ty bikes, Ago's records are real and legit 2. Rossi also won on his first year on a Yam... No, I won't start that topic again :)

Fukkit58: This. I really think that if we still had SuperSic this champ would be Sic vs Marquez on Repsol Honda. Pedrosa would have bradl/bautistas bike. Simoncelli was the real deal, MotoGP was robbed when we lost him. Yes he had attitude, yes he was a crasher, but boy was he fast.
Totally agree, he was very very underrated, he had an incredible raw talent that was just about to be harnessed by more consistency. I cried that day.

Tomco: Agree with Truefan - Crazy Joe the rider of the day. The new Simoncelli perhaps ? Smith another fine job beating his team mate, Redding disappointing again. Bit over hyped unfortunately.
I like Iannone, but Sic was a superstar for me. Crazy but also very fast, he competed with Stoner for more than a pole position. Did I say crazy? Yeah, more like super crazy maybe :)

MotoGP » Rossi: I'm happy, it was a good practice


veitchi: Is it just me or has history proved pedrosa to be a mid pack rider on a grade A bike. I don't think mm is unbeatable by someone on another honda, just not pedrosa Thanks in advance for your replies
No, he's a good rider, a very good rider, but not a champion. I can't manage to like him too much because he never goes that extra mile to attack the rider in front of him and seem to "settle". Of course MM is not unbeatable, but who can beat him right now? JL has the skillset, but on a Honda it's a question mark how he'd perform. VR would do very well on Honda but he's on a downward trajectory. Casey is not here. Hence, so far, if things don't chance quickly, the championship is MM to lose.

MotoGP » Rossi bemoans lack of grip, Honda 'big worry'


Why can't these major factories build tyres that can last at least a reasonable race distance? Of course, a truly skilled rider/driver will have the complete package and also know how to look after the rubber toward the end of a race - but these guys are hamstrung from the very START!
Yeah, *theoretically* it should be enough to give up some performance and grip to make a harder tire that will last race long. I think the issue kicks in when in several tracks a few manufacturers -Honda- and several lucky riders from other brands *can* make the available tire last, so that the tire manufacturer never really faces that "out out" moment where they are forced to change.

MotoGP » Rossi bemoans lack of grip, Honda 'big worry'


cfsteezy: Just wondering because it seems that everyone thinks marc has already bagged the season.
I wouldn't be able to answer how much politics weigh and I doubt many ppl in here would have an exact idea on how to answer that. But politics on MM's domination aren't that big, he's just (possibly) the fastest rider at the moment, who happens to be on the (for sure) fastest machine. Maybe if Yamaha was at the same level Lorenzo -and Rossi at times as well- would make it a leveled championship, but that ain't the case so far.
