MotoGP » ‘Time is a gentleman’ in Marquez, Rossi rift

theblue: Well Honda, the proof will be in 2016's ticket sales. There is clearly anger in the paddock, but what you are quick to forget is the anger in the viewing public's living rooms.
Only once Rossi retires will we know the impact it has on MotoGP. Most of us will watch it all in 2016 in the hope Rossi can do it. Personally I thought Marquez was a worthy successor to Rossi in terms of ability and personality - but not after his Assen outburts and certainly not after the last three races of the season.

MotoGP » Marquez: I’m ready to shake Valentino’s hand

So the damage is done, and now he offers a reconcilliation of sorts. Not going to happen is it. quite patronising actually. Its a shame really, I thought Marquez was going to be a very worthy successor to Vale as far as ability and also character. But after Assen he went way down in my estimation. Not because of the incident itself, but how he reacted to his own mistake afterwards, and then the season played out as it did.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: New ECU poses stiff challenge

2016 can't come soon enough. Jorge may be saying Vale is too old, but who's the one that threw the bike up the road yesterday? And the old man very nearly had him this year. New tyres might not work in Jorge's favour as we all know he relies on the front end being absolutely perfect. He might end up looking very stupid if he keeps spouting off. The odious little rat. At least a four way title fight next year. Two Yamaha's, two Honda's and maybe the occasional Ducati or Suzuki, all taking points off each other. It all might work in Vale's favour.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I was better than Rossi in everything

Better than Rossi in everything. Except being humble, contrite - likeable. Of course, if he was better in everything, why did it take until the last round to beat Rossi. The reality is, VR46 is worth far more to MotoGP and Yamaha. The marketing potential Rossi has over Lorenzo is like night and day. It would have also been good for professional sport over all had the old boy won it. He would have shown the world that you are not past it at 36 and can still complete with people much much younger. Once Lorenzo has 9 titles, and over 100 race wins he can get away with saying things like that.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Third MotoGP crown extra special

Next season can't come soon enough. New tyres. New electronics. Hopefully all four aliens will be taking points off each other, and maybe a couple of additions to the big four. Proper four or six way racing, then we'll see how good Lorenzo is when he has to actually fight his way through the crowd. Marquez will treat him no differently to how he treated Rossi when the championship is for the taking. Rossi simply has to beat them all on track like we know he can.

MotoGP » Lorenzo denies title 'pact' with Marquez

Enanemes: For those who are appalled by Jorge’s reaction at the press conference, I would like to point out that Jorge was also very critical of both Simoncelli and Marc’s aggressive riding styles, so I’m not surprised that he was appalled by Rossi’s action as Rossi’s action went beyond lack of respect for one of his fellow riders, in fact his action put his fellow rider in potential danger, although I believe he didn’t mean to, it simply didn’t cross his mind at that moment. This really isn’t about being Rossi’s teammate, this is about showing respect and care for your fellow riders whether you like them or not, at the end of the day, all of them put their life in danger doing what they love doing. Part 3 of 5
Yet the most vocal individual in all of this, is Jorge. Who wasn't directly involved in any of it.

MotoGP » Lorenzo denies title 'pact' with Marquez

Sparky62: There has been no truth or evidence of any of the accusations. Lap times do not show Marquez slowing down Rossi in either race. Not a single photo or video shows Lorenzo attending the Race Director's meeting. Marquez is supposed to be helping Lorenzo yet passed him to deny him points at Phillip Island! All this conspiracy rubbish borders on insanity and the Rossi fans keep repeating it likes that makes it true. Logic and evidence have place int his discussion as far as they are concerned.
Its not so much about slowing him down as much as just interferring. You will know that if riders are battling like they were, they are inherantly slower than the riders who are out on their own banging in perfect lap after lap. MM wants to win the races and keep VR away from another title in my humble opinion. At phillip island yes he won, but his race antics with VR allowed Iannone to keep up as well. As soon as the last lap came MM cleared off into the distance
