MotoGP » Lorenzo: It’s like tennis…


Pakundo: Even in Mick Doohan's era,the top riders would have the special tyres while everybody else would have the 'B' spec tyres. I really don't know if this happens today with the one tyre manufacturer
Don't think this happens nowadays but what's questionable is when Dorna/BS restricts some standard tyres for some tracks. I think standard tyres should be offered for all tracks and additional ones like Asymmetry tyres should be add-ons for specific tracks. Then it should be up to the team to decide based on FP and tyre advisors which tyre to use. riders like JL are pretty good in conserving softer tyres... Motegi 2013 is a good example. Dorna/BS brought Asym front tyres for the German GP but they decided to bring the standard 2015 hard tyres which are preferred MM and DP. why not they also do the same for the standard 2015 medium compound tyres which has a better edge grip?

MotoGP » Lorenzo: It’s like tennis…


Bridgestone job is the produce the fastest Tyre which may favour some since they can take advantage of the tyre strengths like JL. but Bridgestone may choose to provide different tyre types due to track conditions that may not favour some riders like JL. it's not that BS is favouring JL or VR. What we all are failing to understand is that the tyre with the extra edge grip could be the fastest tyre that can last the entire race but it's not suitable at some tracks because it degrades to unsafe state prior race completion. that's where the odd tyres or the harder option is preferred.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I regret not trying a shorter bike


one of the best overtakes on the first lap. But doing 1.22 when the other 3 were doing 1.21 is not going to cut it, mate. JL is so glued to doing race sims on FP with some good repeatable 1.22 laps but come race days the others beat you by doing 1.21. what's the point of all the prep and a great start? You have to rethink about your team strategy and it should include not being to tyre dependant to a particular tyre. What happen in Assen and this... the the tyre maker brought tyres of not your preference. I think the normal tyre for 2015 should be constant and odd tyres like Asym should be an add on rather removing some tyre choice which removes the advantage of some. Best rider in this race: Dani Pedrosa. this guys was doing 1.21 laps, even towards the end.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I regret not trying a shorter bike


Liam48: To all those blaming Lorenzo for the tires i think is complete tosh. These tires were used at Mugello and what happened there? The hammer ran away with that race, i personally think the tyre thing is in Lorenzo's head if he knows he doesn't go well at a certain track.
JL used the 2015 medium (softer) compound tyres in Mugello, which is his favourite. I think, if the tyres were developed for 2015, then they should be allowed for all races this year. the odd ones for specific tracks should be an add-on to current standard tyres, not replacement. what's the point in developing 2015 tyres and then use 2014 ones like in Assen? didn't they learn stuff and improve the current tyres. aren't the latest and the greatest (except for Honda chassis) supposed to be better?

MotoGP » Bradley Smith ‘shows another dimension’


SendingOutOfSpace: i must say that i have always had more confidence in PE. but BS kept improving and has figure the M1 out pretty good. Sinds this year every race i lose more confidence in PE and gain more on BS and i never thought this would happen. i thought PE would destroy BS with ease. PE even has the 2015 chassis but it makes no difference. So what can i say...... GO BS
Maybe PE needs to stop riding the M1 like Moto2. But BS is doing a great job and I think he has found his way to ride the M1 like it needs to be ridden.

MotoGP » Electronics cure for early Lorenzo problems


JL is quite open about this and gives it a mentioned about what they are trying to do to improve. This is one of his good quality. Nothing to hide. Some of comments here seems like his is the only one using electronics and the rest are riding w/o them, come on... anyway, the only rider i knew who didn't use electronics for couple of races was J.Miller. I saw an interview of him and apparently they could not get the package working plus JM not used with the package. Not sure whether they are using it now?

MotoGP » Rossi satisfied despite slipping to seventh


cnar77: It's amazing in this day and age people still talk about sand bagging. Sandbagging died ages ago because it brought no value after competitors in multiple disciplines stop taking notice of their opponents outside of race weekends. We've been hearing it for the past 20 years with drivers, riders and team principals all stating that they're working on their own program, not paying too much attention to the opposition but they look quick and we'll have to wait and see when we get to the races. Sand bagging in this era is a media and fan creation. Honda doesn't think Rossi is sand bagging. They think he's working on his setup to go quicker and they have to do the same. If they focus too much attention on others then they stop improving themselves. Lorenzo thinks the same. Work on my own program to get comfortable and see what happens come Sunday.
the most sensible comment, so far... agree

MotoGP » Lorenzo: In theory, Sachsenring worse than Assen


Pakundo: VKal,,are you saying that Dorna have the power to fix the results? So that means all the riders are involved in fixing the results so Rossi can win his 10th title?
silly comment. i didn't write about match fixing. what i'm writing is the VR marketing platforming is better platform in drawing crowds or sale for Yamaha vs. JL. VR winning is certainly more welcoming for the stake holders.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: We’ve lost some speed to our rivals


erick1977: I don't think Ducati it's been loosing any speed, unfortunately Dovi and Iannone are just two regular riders, what Ducati needs is a couple of extraordinary riders like Lorenzo or Marquez, even back in 2007 with Casey Stoner, Ducati was not the best bike but Casey was a extraordinary rider, even Pedrosa it is very hard for him to keep it up with the three best riders in the championship ( Rossi,Marquez and Lorenzo) Ducati it is at the same level of Honda and Yamaha but they need a young fearless rider.
Need to think deep before posting this. what you're trying to say is that there is nothing wrong with Ducati and it's riders issue. Man, they had the great VR for 2 season and where did he finish those season? And where is VR this season? the Japs can improve their bikes without touching the engines... what does it say?
