PorkPie: .
MM/VR/JL. and JL beat him last time on track!
Really, i missed that. The last time i saw Stoner raced was Valencia 2012. MM wasnt even in Moto GP, while Rossi and Lorenzo neither one finished . Who is the other JL by the way.
JL was the rider who has beaten CS last time on track. remember JL took the title that year. yes.....now you know
And he was still in contention when he had that big crash at Indy and missed 3 or 4 races. And they had that forced tire change to tires at Silverstone that didn't work at first on the Honda

MotoGP » ‘Final hurdle’ for Circuit of Wales


idavidgraficks: "The average daily relative humidity for August is around 77%.The average monthly amount of precipitation has been recorded at around 0 mm, that's 0 inches. Throughout the month you can expect to see rain or drizzle falling on 14 days of the month" "The average daily relative humidity for September is around 81%.The average monthly amount of precipitation has been recorded at around 0 mm, that's 0 inches. Throughout the month you can expect to see rain or drizzle falling on 16 days of the month." Great - we have a fifty-fifty chance of this race being COLD AND WET AND FOGGY - Isn't there a sunny place in the UK that these racetracks can be built?
Wasn't there a practice session postponed in the last few years due to fog preventing medical evac via helicopter if needed (or was that in WSBK or F1). If so...

MotoGP » Poncharal: Crunch year for Smith and Espargaro


AmIEviL: Smith is the one on the Hot seat, his third year on the same bike there is no excuse's left, Pol will be much better this season although his rookie season wasn't Bad, Marquez has set a very high standard for Rookies coming into Motogp,A big factor being the Repsol Honda is so much better then the Tech 3 M1
Marquez was so far from your typical rookie thou, that it seems almost unfair to compare other rookies to him.

MotoGP » Petrucci ‘can exploit Ducati braking’


ProfessorX:
TrueFan: What I am disappointed with is ... Using the brakes is fine, but the only success with Ducati relied on rear wheel steering mastery. ....
it wasn't rear wheel steering, it was the whole package that got the Ducati on the podium in the dry during 2009 and 2010. Lets not forget Hayden's run and him beating Lorenzo at Aragon. Tires are what wins races, and if yours last longer, you out pace your rival. There is no substitution for lack of grip, accept fine grain traction control and a little luck. if "steering a bike's rear wheel" (thats not really what it is) was a magnificent way to win races, Kenan Sofuoglu would own pretty much everyone in WSS since forever (at least 2007). Ask Sam Lowes if he needed to slide his R6 to win races or have over a second in hand. Ducati won in the dry because the guy winning for them was on his worst day, hands down better than Rossi ever was.
And WSS uses completly different
