MotoGP » Rossi mistake ends Marquez victory battle


eadgbe: I think Rossi was about to use the tactics that were so successful against Casey Stoner at Laguna that time. Stoner had a similar level of superiority over the field that day but Rossi messed up his rhythm and teased a mistake out of him. Of course Stoner wasn't as much of a racer as Marc and the ploy probably needs a certain amount of hatred to work. Would've been interesting to watch though. Roll on Mugello
Thats a nice load of rubbish you've spouted there. Stoner was on a bike that no-one else could ride above 7th, and was fastest around the track by riding it in a way no-one else could, while Rossi was on the best handling bike in the field at the time. Today, Marquez is on the best bike and Rossi on the second best bike, so Marquez who is quicker than Rossi by up to a second a lap had no problems getting away. Put Stoner on Marquez's bike (which Stoner helped develop last year) and he would of done the same to Rossi.

F1 » Horner: Driver pairing ‘a walk in the park’


interestingly, horner said that ricciardo also ignored orders! so it seems that it is ok for ricciardo to ignore orders, but not for seb. and the same thing happened last year...webber constantly ignored orders and hampered sebs races until pulled in. If you are talking about the teams orders to drop back from Bottas at the start of the race then that is totally different. Ricciardo has not ignored orders to let his teammate past as Vettel did Richard. Ric thought he could get Bottas so he had a crack, once he realised it wouldnt be an option with the merc engine's power to hold him off down the straight he backed off. He didnt say Tough Luck! :)

F1 » Horner: Driver pairing ‘a walk in the park’


I guess you didn't see where Seb started or who got the fastest lap? Seb was the best non-Merc driver last Sunday.
You mean late in the race when Seb was on low fuel and a brand new set of the softer compund tyres, while Dan was just cruising on hards and still finished 27 seconds up the road? I wouldnt read too much into that mate. Dan was nowhere near pushing at that stage.

F1 » Horner praises Ricciardo’s ‘massive performance’


DavidMW: Danny Ric has been brilliant so far this season, not only in qualifying, which he always looked good in, but also in the race, which he struggled with at Toro Rosso compared to JEV\blockquote] Sorry David, but if you were paying close attention to the Torro Rosso situation the last two years you would of seen DR outqualify JEV by up to a second a lap quite a few times, but then sometimes struggle in the race due to a lack of tyres after using them in qualifying. He beat JEV more than JEV beat him in races, but often they both finished outside the points so it never showed on the scoreboard. JEV was also lucky a couple of times that other cars ahead of him had issues in the race when he was doing well, and therefore increased his points haul, where as Dan had some bad luck (and some bad strategy) while in points paying positions. DR has shown he is very good as a racer and a brilliant qualifier, so i am pleased to see him doing well at RB.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow ruled out of Argentina


Good to see Tetley and Realist are continuing their hate campaign against Stoner for doing no more than what Mr Rossi did when he was on a Ducati, which was say what was wrong with the bike when asked. Funny how Cal "tells it like it is" and gets lauded for it by those same people bagging Stoner. Stoner will be remembered as one of the very best riders the world has ever seen, and a two time MotoGP champion. Its only people who watch reality tv shows and are in love with personalities over actual bike riding talent that think he is a moaner and complain about his personality. Doohan was meaner than Stoner and he gets praised. The hypocrity would be hilarious if it wasnt so sad that motorbike racing has become about personality over talent.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow ruled out of Argentina


therealDave: "It's also worth remembering that Stoner no-scored 5 times in his last year on it, 2 of which were in his last 4 races." Excellent point Codger...and its worth reminding people that one of those crashes was on the warm-up lap (just for some context).
Haha Dave, still trying to discredit Stoner any chance you get. Come on buddy, he's a two time world champ, and Motogp legend, with more wins than anyone he rode against in the period he was riding, just move on and enjoy your life. Smile, you'll have more fun. :)

F1 » Tyre issues hurting Vettel pace


I'm a massive fan of DR and have been following his progress in F1 very closely, so i expected him to be quick (unlike a lot of people who didnt pay attention to what he was actually doing), but i think its way too early to write off Vettel. When Vettel has the car the way he likes it he is still very fast, and he has shown that at times in practice sessions this year. Hopefully Dan can keep doing what he's doing and learning this new car and team, and keep improving to the point where there is no doubt he is as quick or quicker than vettel, but there's a long way to go yet. RB will also tailor development of the car towards Vettel as the year goes on, as they know he can win titles for them and that will be all that matters in their eyes. DR just has to keep taking the fight to Vettel as much as possible and hopefully as the car improves, he will have a chance to fight for the win. I'd like to see at least a four way shoot out for the win if RB can match Merc.
