MotoGP » Marquez 'nearly crashed in every corner'


Guna4699....To me Valentino was kept down to 3rd by marc's strategy and Lorenzo was beaten down to 2nd by marc's brave riding... Over assumption... don't think MM was worried about VR. in fact the 2nd and 3rd place gap were increasing towards later part of the race. MM was to occupied trying to catch JLO, pass him and make a clean getaway but didn't happen as planned. JLO fought back.

MotoGP » Open class tyre 'viable race choice' for Ducati


amakusa: Iannone Dovi always look good first few laps. And then they fade out. Perhaps thats the viable thing - show their bikes to the cameras first couple of laps, give airtime to sponsors.
It's an Italian maker... it's all about PR and being pretty. winning is secondary. CS was once asked about the difference between Honda and Ducati and he simplistically said: Honda is more focus on race results and winning but Ducati is more focus on PR.

MotoGP » Marquez 'nearly crashed in every corner'


MM used what ever advantage he had at the time. Usually, it's an advantage for a rider, VR in this case to catch or gain when two riders at the front are busy doing multiple overtakes, blocks etc BUT it was not the case. VR couldn't catch them. There were moments where MM and JLO touched or almost touched. I think the MM/JLO lap time dropped to 1.49 in one of the later laps. the last two laps were quick. Tough luck for VR and we can say the same for JLO. But to cry that VR lost because MM was using slipstreaming advantage is bit too much. This is racing.

MotoGP » Marquez 'nearly crashed in every corner'


LanceTheHooliganAlbon:
Yearby23: Everyone disagreed with me when I said Marquez only really passed on the straights... He's said it himself that it was his plan. Him not pushing 100% I'm not so sure about. If he's telling the truth then I think we'll be back to winning by 4 seconds at Catalunya. Good race all the same and both produced an awesome show. Just wish Jorge had've won it for the sake of the championship to make it closer a tad at the top.
From what I saw, Marquez repeatedly overtook in the corners! They did set the bike up to be better on the straights but that was not the only place that he overtook Lorenzo! They were back and forth, back and forth lap after lap! Very very exciting race and just proves how talented they all are! Marquez is just one step above at the moment :)
Marquez repeatedly overtook in the corners...Hmm, which race are you talking about?

MotoGP » Lorenzo lights up Mugello with Marquez battle


therealDave: "Do you work for Yamaha Racing, how do you know whether they made improvements or not?" @VKal, Fair point! So is it more rational that Yamaha found something after 5 rounds and its simply coinsident that this improvement coencided with the allowance of bigger rotors and the indroduction of stickier edge grip tires? Another way to look at it then would be that Yamaha found something, added to that was bigger rotors and added to that was stickier rubber and JLo STILL cant beat MM. Of the 3 options (JLo speaking BS, coincidence or no hope with all that), which is most rational?
My point was, we cannot simply add external parts (rotors and specific tyres) and expect the bike to perform better. Yamaha still need to adjust/adapt/configure all these to work and make the package perform. So simply stating (or trying to state indirectly) that Yamaha has nothing to do with it is not true either.

MotoGP » Lorenzo lights up Mugello with Marquez battle


Garcia: I read somewhere brigdstone brought the revised tyres for this race, the medium almost the same as last year. Lorenzo time is almost the same as last year in mugello, one second faster, so he wasn't going slow, but Marquez still beat him. Marquez has improved so much. Rossi better than last year but needs to be faster if he wants to challenge Marquez and Lorenzo in next races, but he's close. Pedrosa l don't know what is going on.
Now where did you read it?
