MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda

SuperSic: This is beyond amazing news. Only thing left to clear up is if it's a 1 bike team, and if it's running showa/ohlins and brembo/nissin.
it's one man team, so only thing to solve would be brakes and suspension... but Scott made it clear what he wants to ride on a Factory bike, so Ohlins and Brembo will be confirmed as well
it's still a factory bike even with Showa and nissin.

MotoGP » Marquez explains Misano mistake

Revilo52: When Marc has those front end moments like he had today, it reminds me of the incident that took Simoncelli's life in 2011. He holds on for a while when he tucks the front and it means that if he does eventually lose it he will end up near to the racing line, and if other riders are following closely behind it could be a very dangerous situation indeed.
You're right, Fortunate for him, JL was not that close.

MotoGP » Second row Marquez 'struggling' with Honda set-up

VKal: Not sure about able to use Q2 to do fine tuning for race prep and not prioritising getting pole. Usually use different tyres and setting for QF. Warm up would be more useful. Honda manage to get better at Yamaha favoured tracks but what happen here? I still expect this guy fighting for a win, come race day.
Starting on pole doesnt mean as much to him as most since he has the skills to get by slower riders . He does not get hung up behind a slower rider for very long. Some riders throw away half a race waiting for a safe pass, then complain that they got held up Marquez will wait about half a lap. These 4 bikes are so close in performance, there is no Yamaha or Honda tracks, its up to the riders who wins.
the honda and yamaha are close but not in the same area. The favoured track has been mentioned for years by riders and expert commentators. are you saying that they are wrong?

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I won’t do anything crazy to win

therealDave: @Brain, I would argue that the only difference between taking risks and doing something crazy is the end result! If the risk pays off and everyone stays upright, then its "taking a risk". If the risk doesn't pay off and people crash and get hurt, then its "doing something crazy". PS - If the risk pays of and its Jlo who loses out, then its "dangerous" full stop.
I'm involved in safety/risk management business. There is risk everywhere, it's all about managing risk. Risking it for futile (no gain) exercise is called crazy/stupid/careless/insane etc. take 2013, JL rode in Assen after a surgery. A decisive calculated risk take because the WC is on the line. Should he do the same now, answer is NO because there is no gain.

MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass LOL Lorenzo is the first guy to get overnight specials from bridgestone on the control tyre era... and this are real overnight specials as BS does not have a contract with the rider or the Factory but with powers that be... just terrible. Yamaha has no chance with that guy on, bring on Pol already!
I didn't know that JL got over night special tyres in the control tyre era... is this possible?

MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass

Brain: Duh Wilco, thats the intent of a block pass is to make your opponent lift and stand up, killing your drive out of the corner. Involuntary reflex will make you do it every time. Its no more dangerous than any other pass.
I heard a lot of things about the legality of the block pass. So it’s no point arguing about it. What I like to know is who is responsible for their safety? In this case the decision of safety for MM and JL was in the hands of JL. If JL decided to maintain his line and they both crashed, will JL be at fault?
