MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


Tires in any form of motorsports are "where the rubber meets the road" as they say. There is not a single more important component than tires. If neither rider nor bike can manage tires correctly the results will suffer. Brno allows a smooth rider to take advantage of the flowing layout without losing time to an aggressive rider. It's these facts alone that lead to the extra pressure on Marquez throughout race distance which allowed Pedrosa and others to finally compete. Unfortunately many circuits have point and shoot characteristics which will continue to play to Marquez's strengths.

MotoGP » Redding waiting on Gresini for MotoGP 2015


Tomco:
trummy200: It must be appreciated that Redding is a big lad compered to others on the grid, so an underpowered bike is even a bigger handicap than to other riders. I think he has done a really good job up to now and does deserve a good crack on a factory bike
Sorry Trummy but the weight thing has become boring. Remember Will Hartog Suzuki RG500 140 hp. Didnt cause him too many problems. Dave Jefferies, Christian Bourgeois, Peter Hickman, etc etc. Loads of examples. Its like saying small riders dont have the strength etc.
In the modern era of GP riders weight is crucial. Can't compare to the old days when machinery and rider skills were separated by seconds per lap not 1/10 of a second. Comparing to open roads racers like Jefferies etc is just ridiculous as lap times are a result of who is willing to take the most risk and nothing more.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


grantrd: he has won ten races in a row, Rossi never came close to that when he was with honda...which contradicts his BS about the competition not being as good....
Rossi came very close to winning all the races in 2001 and 2002.. 11 wins in 2001, 11 wins in 2002 with nine in a row I believe, and 2003 was nearly as dominant with nine wins. Rossi also never finished off the podium in 2002 and 2003.. which even the great Marquez hasn't been able to do. So actually he did come quite close to ten in a row... fyi

MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


grantrd: in 2001 his best run was 4 in a row in 2002 his best run was 7 in a row ( impressive I'll admit, but not 10 is it) in 2003 his best run was 3 in a row get your facts straight fyi
No, you're right.. he "only" won 9 of the first eleven in 2002...guess that's not very close to some people.. Yes my facts regarding the number of wins in a row the 2002 season were a bit off but the rest of the FACTS were spot on and also very impressive but I guess highlighting them would only make you look like hater for dwelling on "how many in a row" while ignoring his utter dominance in those three seasons.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


Good thing Rossi jumped ship to the underdog Yamaha when he did...I can only imagine the hard-on you haters would get crediting Honda for Rossi's achievements. Truth is Honda has always been the better bike but they haven't had a rider since Rossi to exploit it's potential...until now. Marquez will move elsewhere when his contract is up and I believe he'll still be the man to beat....Just as Rossi has always been. The best riders Dominate the track in a way that Pedrosa, Hayden, Stoner, and Lorenzo just haven't ever been able to do. Don't get me wrong, those guys are all great riders...just not THE BEST.

MotoGP » Marquez expecting ‘strong’ Yamaha challenge


Tires mean nothing if you're running inferior electronics. Control tires was always gonna be useless without control ecu. The top manufacturers have the ability to build a competitive bike around any tire but simply cannot compete with Honda's electronics. Marquez will have to leave Honda if he ever wants to prove he's genuinely the best rider out there...he's definitely top 3 tho.

no, tires mean everything.
They mean everything to those who are so skeptical that they can't believe anyone in the world has the integrity to do what they say they'll do...like offer equally competetive tires to ALL manufacturers. I encourage your skepticism but... Have you ever asked yourself what Bridgestone has to gain by putting their business ethics and integrity at risk by favoring certain riders or manufacturers? Tires and hardware set-up aren't exactly rocket science but electronics these days very much is.
