MotoGP » Rossi blasts Marquez after MotoGP title defeat

Accepting defeat is never easy. But to be honest I've never seen Vale behaves like this after a title lost. So much bitterness. It seems the pressure has become too much for him. His fans and close friends must care about this. Don't get me wrong. Surely he's no saint (nobody is), but I watched Valencia. Before PI, Sepang. No need to explain over and over again. I understand how it feels. He's got a point there. It sucks like hell for sure! But he needs to get over that somehow. Better be prepared for next year's challenge. Clearly he's no longer at the same level with the youngs (that's reality). But like Capirossi said, he has a lot of experience up his sleeve. Use them in place of pure physical strength, wildness, electronics. He can still be a champion. And use some wisdom too. Try not to be hot headed no matter how hard things get. Especially on tracks. Come on. Go for it!

MotoGP » Drama as Rossi takes down Marquez!

What a pitiful moment in motorsport. Both are great riders. I will say this very very carefully, as this is a very complicated situation. First, I think there's a very distinct line between simple passing-repassing maneuver and (pure?) blocking. Can you avoid being blocked (on purpose) by just pushing your ride faster? Second, you definitely can make anyone burst into outrage. ANYONE, even the calm type, with PROPER method. Someone has mentioned Zidane. That's very close. Man, this thing is very complicated indeed.

MotoGP » Rossi: I did not kick Marquez off

iSayuSay: I'm your fan, Rossi. But with so much pain I have to say maybe it's time for you to leave. Get in another championship, or be a motoGP official like Capirossi. Leave the dirty game for the youngs.
I agree with you. Clearly he's been struggling since mid season. Tech problems, being a slow starter, in his mid-thirties (oldest in the grid), all mixed-up. Not to mention the ever-growing aggressiveness of those young riders on the track. Let's accept it. They will morph into wild hungry wolves whenever they have the chance fighting with him. All of them. Especially Marquez, with all his crazy habits. It's almost like he's become a living "trophy" among them. When the anxiety becomes too much to bear, there you go. First comes Phillip Island. Then Sepang. Yes, Rossi has made a mistake, and he got penalised for that. But I think it's wise to see things in a deeper way (my finger on you, Lorenzo). He's only human. I'm 38. Believe me.

MotoGP » Marquez mystified by Rossi attack

Come on guys. I'm not defending Rossi but one stain and suddenly you hate him like hell? He's been a great sportsman after all, accepting his defeat, praising others, etc. But nobody is perfect. His reaction is not so uncommon in grand prix history. Don't treat it like a blasphemy or something. They all prone to this kind of depression under certain circumstances. At least he's got a valid data (race lap times) backing up his statement (disagree with him on that 'though). Marquez is absolutely right about the pressure (I don't like his harsh riding style but that's a very good side of him saying that, a gentleman indeed), and no one is 100% immune to such thing. Relax. Let's just enjoy the final two races and wish those brave racers all the best.. :)

MotoGP » Worst of season as braking, corner entry woes hamper Rossi

If I recall correctly, moments before his terrible 2010 accident, JLo was already closing in. Rossi wasn't that old, but clearly he's no longer at the same level. No wonder, soon after his recovery, he lagged behind his team mate most of the time. I think that's natural. The crash alone explains a lot. Nobody wants to get hurt so badly in the same spot, again. But the most irritating part is his attitude, hiding behind mechanical problems, etc. But again, what do we expect? He's just a human after all. The only thing I don't understand is, instead of racing (with so-so result), humiliating himself, get mocked, why not building his own race team? I mean look at Roberts, Rainey. I think it would have been better for him, more self esteem, pride..

MotoGP » Official: Cal Crutchlow to Ducati MotoGP team

Maybe he thinks it's a better choice for him to join Ducati, as a factory rider. If he can't win on that red bike after 2 years, he's still young enough to be contacted by other prime teams. Staying on that sat Yam won't do any good for him. Yes he will be in front of Rossi most of the races. But that won't be enough to propel him to the top passing those factory Yams and Hondas. Maybe Ducati has done some technological advance now, who knows? Anything is possible. Well, good luck to you, Cal. You're gonna need that, a lot..
