WSBK » Leon Haslam signs for Red Devils Aprilia


Greavesit: I think you may be eating these words in a bit of humble pie this time next year!
That's the same line the Brits always come on here with, every time Haslam's ability is called in to question. After so many years of this guy not delivering, it's surely time you all faced facts. This guy isn't of the required standard. With the exception of a little purple patch that he hit in early 2010, he's been pretty much found wanting at world level.

MotoGP » Delighted Dovizioso breaks 10sec barrier


One sunny day does not a summer make. We'll see if he can keep this sort of level for the remaining races. Personally, I doubt it. Even Nicky Hayden had the odd good day racing the Ducati Of Death. This could well end up being just another of those little blips in an otherwise mediocre season. Crutchlow's doing the right thing. He's no reason to risk anything now that he's signed up to ride a decent bike for next year. Especially as he's riding a bike that won't have any of the development parts that Dovi and Ianonne will be getting the benefit of. He just has to tread water, make through the remaining races without hurting himself and dream of the day when he can finally throw a leg over the best racing motorbike on the planet.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez explains first defeat of 2014


Yep, Marquez threw the race because Dorna told him to. Because they're fed up with him winning, or something. It seems the Crash reading paranoid schizophrenics are out in force today. I'm surprised they let you near a computer. Never mind about it being one that's connected to the outside world via the internet. I suggest getting back on your antipsychotic medication as soon as possible.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez explains first defeat of 2014


Everybody has a bad weekend now and again. I don't think #93 or the Honda suits will be losing too much sleep over this. He's got one hand on the trophy now and can coast home for the rest of the season. Even if Dani wins every race from now till the end of the year he'll still take the big one home by a comfortable margin. This is the actually the first race that Marquez has finished off the podium (one DNF and a DQ aside) in the top class.

F1 » Ecclestone ‘a bit of an idiot’ for settling


The Poison Dwarf really pulled off a nice bit of Karma Houdini, here. Of course, because he wasn't actually convicted, he and his lawyers can and will constantly harp on about being innocent. Although, I think most people in the world know the difference between actually being found not guilty and buying your way out of a trial before a verdict has been passed. If I was the prosecutor, I'd have demanded at least double that figure. $100 million isn't much more than pocket change to this dude. I always wonder, though, why these people who have billions in the bank feel the need to make even more. Going as far as taking perhaps legally dubious or even downright illegal measures to do so when they're already set up for life as it is. I guess the bottom line is that they're just fundamentally greedy people.

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty on Suzuki MotoGP test: This is my chance


If you look at Eugene's record on the Aprilia, you'll see plenty of DNFs. Some were mechanical, of course, but he also did plenty of crashing on that bike. He hit a nice little purple patch at the end of last year but consider his record, so far, for this year and it's been back to normal service for him. So, yes. I think the run of results he had, to close last season, could very well be seen as a statistical blip. That is, if you're looking at the bigger picture and not just looking through your fanboy glasses.

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty on Suzuki MotoGP test: This is my chance


The chances of Laverty getting a GP ride for next year are zero. Unless he can turn his season around and somehow win this year's title in Supers. Which would be little short of a miracle. It was crashing all the time that likely got him fired from Aprilia last year and if he keeps presenting Paul Denning with very expensive bent motorbikes instead of points finishes he most likely won't even be in the Suzuki Superbike team next year. He did demonstrate his winning abilities at the end of last year but it's starting to look more like a statistical blip instead of a true indication of what a potential employer can expect if they hire him as their rider. His only hope to get in to Grand Prix would be a ride for Paul Bird's team. Apart from that, BSB beckons, as it does for Leon Haslam and all the other Brits who can't make the grade.

WSBK » Max Biaggi to test with Aprilia


I think Melandri is now finding out that the RSV4 isn't quite the magic bullet he thought it was before he signed up to ride it. Laverty struggled for a year and a half to manage anything like consistent results with it. Guinters managed a few good rides but again, nothing like the old dude he replaced achieved as did Leon Camier. I think it's fair to say that the bike is a somewhat temperamental mistress which, I think, kind of puts Max's results with the thing over the years in to a bit more perspective. In short, he was making the thing look good.
