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.

MotoGP » Ben Spies - Q&A: Part 1


I think most people would agree that Mladin would have done pretty well in World Supers, had he decided to give it a go. His tenure with Cagiva in Grand Prix in 1993 was a bit of a waste of time but he was still a fairly young dude and not that long in to his professional career. Take the mature racer out of AMA in 2003 or so, stick him in World Superbike and he would have given anybody a hard time on track. And, most likely, off it as well. I think even Ben Spies would agree with that statement. For him, though, he was quite happy being one of the best paid riders in the world where he was, rather than taking a huge cut in money just to prove a point on the world stage. If you were getting paid millions of dollars a year in the job you're doing now, it would pretty hard to walk away from it, no?

MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Thursday (Final)


DB8: I was just pointing out that today, JLO was faster, on average across the course of the day. Thats a fact.
Take a look at the long run Marquez did. His times are about a second faster than the Yamahas. Starting from low to mid through to high 2:00 laps at the end with a best of 1:59.991. Valentino was lapping at the low 2:01 mark with a best of 2:01.048. Although his times were more consistent, his run wasn't as long. Jorge didn't do a run of more than 5 or 6 laps today. If this was a race today, Marquez would have wiped the floor with everybody.
