MotoGP » Harder Michelin still needs work, says Pedrosa


HRC should not let MM lead development. DP should be the point of reference. MM's loosey-goosey style looks exciting but led to an overly aggressive '15 engine. They then had to regress to the '14 chassis to make the bike rideable. In fact, i'd say that DP and CC should have the most input on the '16 RCV. CC because he has ridden two rival manufacturers and knows the strong points of those other machines in which the RCV may be lacking.

MotoGP » Rossi, Marquez: 2016 ECU ‘step back in time’


grantrd: Rossi 'Its better for the battle during the race' .......well that's going to be a problem for you then ........more riders getting in your way...........
c'mon guys. it's over. the cheap shots are old. i don't like VR but you can't not recognise his achievements this year alone. i thought he was fast, smart and was just pipped to his tenth. no disgrace there at all. still more laps left in the old dog. i for one wish him well next season.

MotoGP » Rossi, Marquez: 2016 ECU ‘step back in time’


RealRacingCampaign: Seems like the ecu was built with an awful lot of potential - the factories pushed hard for the capability of hardware & software to have huge scope. Do, while the actual sharing of actual software upgrades etc will be available to all.... Sneakily the status quo won't change. Oh sure there may be the odd initial wobble, but the actual setups will be key due to the still high complexity... So of course the more data engineers you have at your disposal, the more data you can crunch, & the better your setup will be. And so the Factory's saw to it that the Works Teams resources will trump the plucky customer teams, who remain Tier 2. It's a smokescreen. Make it LOOK like its a brave new world, when really it's just the same one with a new hat & new shoes.
completely agree. what was cechinello thinking ? the positive is more dukes on the grid. everyone is slagging off the rcv-rs bikes, but hrc developed a customer bike as per the rules

MotoGP » Pedrosa 'super happy' with season turnaround


Dani has to start next year with a bang. Like winning the first 3 races. He usually starts too slow. Picks up by Jerez, gets injured anytime from Le Mans to Sachsenring, has a great Brno, gets injured again by Motegi (through no fault of his own usually) and finishes strongly by Valencia. Too inconsistent. And by inconsistent amongst the "aliens", i mean too many dodgy 5/6ths (especially during changeable conditions). I felt bad for him when CS came and wiped the floor with him on the bike he developed. Would love his talent to be rewarded at the highest level with a WC but i fear his teammate will be too much of a monster to beat. He's 0.2-04 secs off MM and that's no disgrace. I can live with that. By far my preferred rider since his 250 days.

MotoGP » Pedrosa 'super happy' with season turnaround


Insincere compliments for Dani, prolly from bummed out VR fans. All of a sudden he has 'admirers' and 'respect' heaped on him. I clearly recall him being labelled "pedrobot". I clearly remember him being cited as the reason for the transition to 800s because of his small stature. I clearly recall the vitriol he received when Simoncelli (RIP) barged into him, dropped him and broke his collar bone. He was labelled 'soft' and a whinger. Now, he's 'Mr. Integrity', to contrast soley with his teammate MM. Phoney well wishers Dani. Ignore them. They don't mean you well at all.

MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa: No Spanish title conspiracy


cfsteezy: @tunde You answered your own question minus the web pages part. Email, calls, texts, MARCS DATA...
What is MM's data going to tell you ? That he could have passed JL ? If VR is so convinced, he should take it to the CAS. The burden of proof will rest on him. MM has told other journos he wanted to stalk JL like he had done at Indy. DP's rapid end of race and overtake ruined that plan. DP passed him, went wide, MM nipped back and by then JL was too far ahead. All on the last lap. I guess ppl will see what they want to see.

MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa: No Spanish title conspiracy


cfsteezy: There should be a full investigation. End of. Thats the only way motogp can be credible. Or these theories on both sides will NEVER stop.
And what terms of reference would the investigation have ? And what evidence would be admissable or sought ? phone calls, texts, internet web pages visited, total bike data ad nauseam ? Magaminity and grace would have bundled Rossi's reluctant character to congratulate JL. Rather, bile and gracelessness has clouded his post race utterances. MM should say absolutely nothing. Rossi should prove his case, not by appealing to mob sentimentality.
