MotoGP » Rossi: I think Stoner wants to race

I've no time for national flag wavers. Motorcycle racing isn't football. I just like to see good, clean racing. These days riders' egos and personality cults seem be the most important thing for many people.To me it doesn't matter at all which country a rider comes from. Nor does it matter much to me how many world championships each rider has won. Nor do I believe that the 'Spanish conspiracy' theorists have any actual evidence upon which to base their theories apart from Rossi's venomous comments. You don't actually see Rossi's boot touch Marquez' brake lever in the videos, but that isn't proof that it didn't happen. If Rossi seems to be encouraging Casey's return I'm sure he must have his reasons. There is surely still no love lost between them after he took Casey down at Jerez in 2011. If Casey returns it won't be this season, obviously, so Rossi still has another year in which to win another title without Stoner getting in his way. Casey isn't a real threat to him now so nothing t

MotoGP » Stoner: Marquez felt threatened

Oh dear, I'd love to see Casey back racing again because he is a sensational rider who can ride as well as any of the the top guys. It would be great to see him back mixing it up with the others - but it was a jab in front of the media like this by Rossi last year that sent the tail end of 2015 into a nasty downward spiral. Casey has always been tagged many times as a whinger but I'm sad to say he still doesn't seem to have learned that he's only dragging himself down by doing it. Come on Casey, cut it out.

MotoGP » Agostini: Five moments I remember most

Riders were killed often in those days because there were dangerous obstacles all around the tracks, their brakes were inadequate, the tracks were poor and the tyres had far less grip than they do today. Now the tyres have unbelievable grip, the brakes are sensational and the GP tracks are smooth and grippy and have big kitty litter bins and air fences around the perimeter where riders can fall without injury. In Ago's day, if one rider bumped into another rider and knocked him down, that guy might well have been killed. Today we see riders bumping each other off the track at every other race because they know their victim will probably be OK. To me that's a far cry from Ago's era when the riders were mostly gentlemen and treated one another with dignity and respect. I don't want to see any rider killed, of course, but I think that modern safety measures have actually led to this situation where riders no longer respect one another and behave like spoiled brat egotists. I used to admir

MotoGP » Rossi blasts Marquez after MotoGP title defeat

Rossi is a sore loser and a bad sportsman. he has shown this childish tendency repeatedly throughout his career. He is a great rider of course but he is also a bully and a spoiled child who has never grown up. It is Rossi, not Marquez , who has caused the friction this season and finally he has paid the price for his bullying. He would be better to keep his mouth shut and accept defeat gracefully.

MotoGP » Permanent Bureau: Sport must prevail on Sunday

I wish all those people who are baying for Marquez' blood would try to get things in perspective. The poor kid hasn't actually done anything wrong. The officials agree that all of his passes on Rossi were clean. The allegations that he was trying to slow Rossi down are unproven. All of the animosity towards him is based on nothing more than speculation. Rossi, on the other hand, has admitted that he meant to force Marc off the track.
