MotoGP » Nicky Hayden’s team-mates - who impressed most?


Maybe Codge and Motojunky could tell us all how everyone else apart from Stoner did on the 2007 Duke that was such an advantageous bike to have while they're re-imagining history? Perhaps they could then tell us all about how Rossi moaned until he got Bridgestone to supply him tyres when they didn't want to, which then caused the tyres to be moved away from what the duke needed to be competitive in 2008, yet Stoner still managed to be right in the championship hunt for most of the year on a bike that didn't turn? Maybe they could tell us how many wins Stoners teammates got on any Ducati? Or they could tell us what happened in the 2010 Valencia test when Stoner stepped onto a proper MotoGP bike that turned corners, while Rossi tried to ride that same Ducati he said Stoner wasn't riding hard enough? Nice work lads, way to show us all your yellow tinted glasses... :)

MotoGP » Official: Casey Stoner returns to Ducati


People forget it took Marquez and co two years of pre-season tests and bike development to beat Stoners Sepang lap record,, and Marquez said recently himself that every time Stoner got on the bike (Honda) he was fast, so I don think speed is the issue despite the press release. Marquez said that Casey had also told Honda he knew what was wrong with the bike straight away but they didn't listen to him. Hopefully he gets to do lots of testing on the Duke and a wild card or two would be great to watch. I still think he'd be quick after a session or two on the bike. I'm sure it'd be a nice change for him to be on a duke that actually steers with the front wheel for a change. :)

MotoGP » Honda: This was our biggest mistake…


MLF:
Mintox: Hondas biggest mistake was not listening to Stoner when he told them the engine was too aggressive. Their next biggest mistake will be letting him go to Ducati if it happens.
Listen to Stoner ??? may as well listen to Hailwood and Ago ! Let it go, Stoner is history like the rest of them.
Stoner told them in testing at the start of the year the engine was too aggressive, but they didn't listen to him and instead listened to the engineers who weren't riders when they said it was alright. Maybe do some research before you slag off someone who knows a lot more about riding a bike than any of us..

MotoGP » Honda: This was our biggest mistake…


Tetley: Nakamoto " “This was our biggest mistake for this year. Because as you know Sepang is very high temperature and high humidity. Usually in this kind of conditions the engine loses power. Therefore less aggressive. " High temperature, yes. But surely it has been proven that high humidity increases power. There used to be water/steam after-market generators which claimed to increase power. It is noticable that on a foggy morning an engine responds more crisply.
Foggy mornings are usually cool or cold though Tetley, which makes the air density higher. The cooler the air temp, the denser the air and the more power you get from an engine, hence Mercedes F1 engine design where the air sent into the turbo is kept away from the engine heat, making it cooler and delivering better power. :)

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


samas: Anyone remember Casey testing the 1000cc bike for 2012, he was about a second faster than anyone else and then FIM or Dorna decided to change the weight or something and the Honda was struggling after it didn't seem to make as much a difference to the other manufacturing companies. Also did you forget Casey's second place by millimeters on the third class Honda 990cc
Correct Samas, Casey was a second up on everyone at the Sepang pre-season test the first year of the 1000 cc machines, then Dorna changed the tires and the weight which badly affected the Honda, in order to try and get the Ducati to work better with the softer front tire. Casey told them that the front tire was too soft and dangerous as it collapsed under load, but Dorna wouldn't listen. A year later Dorna scrapped that tire because of all the crashes.

MotoGP » Rossi wants Lorenzo title fight 'on equal terms'


Rossigirl: It would have been equal terms Vale, if you kept your suspicions and suppositions to yourself at the press conference and let your racing (which is superlative) do the talking. Why won't my fellow Rossi fans admit that if it wasn't for his unfounded accusations, none of this would have ever happened? The way some fans are carrying on is ridiculous. Wishing injury upon other riders and other silly suggestions. Really? I believe he still has his chances to win the Championship but he surely has made it difficult for himself!
Well said Rossigirl. Its nice to see a Rossi fan who can think for themselves and post with intelligence and class. Well done. :)

MotoGP » FIM: Rossi-Marquez clash has 'poisoned' MotoGP


Man these Rossi fans are delusional. There is only one guy to blame for this, and that is Rossi. He's been getting away with the same moves Marquez pulled on him for years, and if people didn't like it, he told them it was just racing. Now, when its done to him, he cries like a baby and says its a conspiracy to lose him a title, a title he's only been leading because the other guys have had bike issues or injury issues. Now that they're up to speed they are kicking his ass and he knows he has no chance. So he whinges and tries to knock someone off the track. He started this, so he only has himself to blame, and any objective observer knows that's the truth, after all, as someone mentioned earlier, this type of letter has been issued by FIM before, and Rossi was involved then too. You reap what you sow Rossi. Enjoy! :)

F1 » Ricciardo unconvinced by Renault upgrade gains


F1sandgroper: Just a driver telling it how it is for once. It's not Renault bashing and anyway who ever said that they were exempt from criticism if the product isn't good enough. Renault have as much to answer for in this war of words.
You have to realise mate that if certain people didn't come on here daily to bash DR and pretend they know everything about F1 they wouldn't have anything to do. DR was a breath of fresh air a year ago for the way he spoke, and now, after beating their favourite driver in a head to head battle, he's all of a sudden a bad guy.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


People seem to forget it took Marquez took two years of pre season testing at Sepang to break Stoners pre season lap record, a record that was set when the 1000cc was in its first iteration. If he came back it wouldn't take him long to get up to speed but I doubt he will come back. At most he will do some testing and maybe a wild card at Phillip Island. What an awesome thing that would be. :)
