MotoGP » Bradl out to build on Motegi progress

The RS-GP has an inherent weakness. It is not as frequently refered to as it shoud be, but this superbike-based machine is about 10kg (22lb) heavier than its counterparts. Taking that crucial fact into account, both Bautista and Bradl has been doing really good job. Some remain critical about their performance just because they constantly fail to match their race results with those in practices or qualifying, but their relatively poor performance on Sundays is largely due to the fact that a heavier machine wears tires faster. P.I. is one of the most demanding venue in terms of tire wear, so I think they will face great difficulties once again on Sunday, but I hope they will create some sensation during practices and qualifying at the least, hopefully proceeding to Q2 for the first time.

MotoGP » Scary exit for Pol Espargaro

When Brad performed badly in his second year but still managed to secure his third year ride, many people thought that Herve Poncheral, supposed to possess much more knowledge than us ordinary fans, had good reasons to retain Brad. And eventually they both (Herve n Brad) proved themselves right. If Yamaha is so certain about Pol's potental, I think they must have good enough reasons to retain him. However, Pol's performance this year is just disastrous, in terms of both speed and consistency. Maybe he was offered his third year ride as just a temporary solution until Rins becomes ready to join forces.

MotoGP » Smith: One mistake and you’re eighth not fifth

SmokinHaddock: I see it more as positioning. Starting the crusade for a factory ride in 2017. Can't fault his ambition.
“Obviously, he made the mistake and ran off track. He lost about a second more than I did when I ran wide. So a little bit more than I did, but he had plenty of laps behind me towards the end, and all the opportunities to attack and overtake me. But like you said, it was his strongest weekend for a while and I still managed to come out on top. He's the guy riding my style of bike, and he still can't do more. So even with a difficult weekend, we can still manage to beat the guy who is riding my motorcycle, so I have to pleased with that.” How can you see it more as positioning? LOL It's all about Pol's (impaired) performance at Aragon! I must say that you're totally deluded by your fanboysm. Ambition? I see it more as mere 'grudge'.

MotoGP » Official: Rabat to MotoGP with Marc VDS

FLtrooper: Huh? Spies won the WSBK championship his first year with most tracks he didn't know. In 3 years of GP Spies also had 6 podiums and one win in dry conditions. Not lucky podiums in crap conditions. I'm not a total hater of UK riders but let's be honest... There isn't one current UK GP rider with a better record.
You are wrong. There HASN'T been any UK rider with a better record since the days of Sheene, and those days were nearly 40 years ago. Yet UK fans claim they are far more successful than the US in the GP, which is really hilarious.

Since the inauguration of the world championships MGP/500 17 UK champs, 15 US champs 350 13 UK, 0 US Moto2/250 UK9 US2 Moto3/125 UK4, US 0 80/50 UK 1, US 0 Are you still laughing
Can't you see the point? You digging up all those 'ancient records' is making the things even more hilarious. Most of the UK's success is from the days of people still travelling on ships/prop-planes. LOL
