MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps Yamaha has to start designing bikes to compete instead of bikes for Lorenzo the guy is out of his depth every time the Honda comes to battle.
M1 design for Lorenzo... M1 was VR development from the moment they started winning MotoGP. JL rides with different setup and yes the electronics has changed ever since VR returned back to Yamaha. VR performance from 2014 Sepang test was good, only now he started losing to JL. Everybody said that VR is no 1 and JL was no. 2 for Yamaha during early part of this season. Now when he losing to JL, the argument has gone back to VR is riding JL M1.

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'left everything on the track'

Spinach: Pfft! At this stage, Lorenzo should be throwing it down the track rather than settling for 2nd. He is not going to win the title, so truly, what does he have to lose? Who cares who comes in 2nd or 3rd in the championship unless you are a rookie or on a satellite bike. I respect his skills, don't get me wrong, and he has shown his former greatness, but there is no winning riding his normal game.
From where he was on Friday to where he finished on race day says a lot. He wouldn’t have finished 2nd 0.7s off MM without taking any risk. It would have been closer finish if weren’t for MM collision with JL. Praise the guy for trying really hard to give us a close race.

MotoGP » Tyre problems return to haunt Lorenzo

I don’t like to believe that there is tyre conspiracy but with the current tyre issues, makes me wonder. JL is questioning the single tyre supplier scheme? JL performance problems were tyres related in earlier part of the season and the races could be really close for 1and 2 place. I’m still sure that MM would be leading the point’s score but not sure MM would have had as many wins as now.

MotoGP » Marquez ‘erases doubts’, on top with 2015 Honda

Harryx: The 2015 bike seems to make at least -0.4s? How weird. Probably it is only confidence and believing the .15 bike must be faster than the .14 bike ...Scott Redding was almost 3 s. slower...maybe that was the problem at the introduction of the open Honda... its not 0.3 s but 3 s. slower. They got a decimal wrong on the Honda lawnmower they sold the world...:-)
Honda makes lawnmovers but certainly can build superb racing bikes. Not bad for a lawnmover maker compared to the big huh hah EU marks like Ducati.

MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo debut 2015 Yamaha

StevoG: Yamah have always come up with something to up the anti on the Hondas but after 2 years now of no show and no go I don't know where or who is running the show at Yamaha these days? If they can't do something then they should replace who ever is running the show as Yamaha are not catching up and look outgunned by the Hondas in every GP. MM is not the factor here because JLo and VR are riding well and are giving the Yamaha every chance of being competitive I have seen times where Mick Doohan trashed Yamaha for years until he retired. So, this is not new. Yamaha will bounce back. I see huge improvement now with the bike and JL. JL poor performance and negative attitude didn't really help Yamaha. Now with his positive attitude and good performance gives Yamaha a good reference point to improve. They know 2014 WC is gone and they'll be concentrating with collecting solid data for 2015 comeback. Yamaha is a Japanese company, they always look at long term results.

MotoGP » Rossi: Finally I can beat Marquez!

I enjoyed seeing VR pass MM than JL and DP rides. VR did well. The Yamaha's seems to be getting better. MM seems to be over doing his braking and couldn't execute a quick turn into the corner as he used to. The others DP, JL and VR rides were smoother. JL was too cautious in the midpoint of the race but was consistent. DP times peaked and slowed towards the end. Not sure what DP meant with different strategy. Was it to settle down with 2nd place if MM was first and go win if MM dropped back.
