MotoGP » Ducati ‘have not decided’ Lorenzo’s team-mate


Abefan: Dovi to stay, Pedro to Suzuki, vinales to Yamaha, and ianone to repsol. Rins or zarco to tech3. Unless vinales scores a podium before the halfway point in the year in which case Suzuki can invoke an option to keep him. Then all I've said is Keek lol. PS, luthi to ktm
Nice speculation, I have the same exact thoughts. Iannone would make a great Honda rider, That thing needs to be ridden hard.

MotoGP » MotoGP Austin, USA - Free Practice (2) Results


justPeople: We can expect the same this year, the way he rides the bike. It's good too watch, but you wonder at what lap will he fall. And then sometimes he fell, sometimes he won. Then the point he accumulate will be less than Rossi. Then he will help Lorenzo become champion again, just to prevent Rossi adding more championship in his record.
I think Marc has matured enough this season to know when to settle for points rather than pushing for the win. Given the deficiencies of the Honda, he would still have to risk more than others, but I feel he is quite comfortable there. Rossi wouldn't benefit as much from Marc DNF's as he did last season. The eventual champion this season would have to win more races than others.

MotoGP » Honda: Main concern is the electronics


TrueFan: I should add that to get rid of "electronic aids", you have to ditch EFI, pneumatic valves, and automated ignition advance. They are all electronic trickery. That would not be a step forward. If you're only drawing a line somewhere between "these electronic aids" and "those electronic aids", then you have a weak argument, IMHO.
Couldn't agree more. Wheelie control, traction control, does not overcome physics to give bikes more grip. Riders always say they don't want to hit the electronic wheelie/traction control administered engine cuts, it makes them lose time. What electronics does for the rider is that it gives them more confidence to push 100% lap after lap. Electronics isn't taking talent away from racing.

MotoGP » Stoner: Marquez felt threatened


VKal: it's not just all about race skills, mate. it's about influence. CS somehow has good relationship with Nakamoto. Given a choice, Nakamoto would have preferred CS to continue rather than having MM. Something tells me that MM/team doesn't have a full control or influence on HRC. Otherwise, they won't be worried.
Rubbish! Marquez is Honda's golden boy now. Honda would go to absurd lengths to keep MM.

MotoGP » 'Having Stoner back would be amazing'


MLF: Stoner said he would "definitely not" be racing again full-time. Racing meant taking so much risk all the time, something which made sense when he was on the inside, competing for championships, but looking back from the outside, his priorities had changed. "There is more to life with my family," he told MCN. He was still very happy with his decision, he said. now just let it die, please.
Stoner also said in his biography that it'd be a cold day in hell before he rode for Ducati again. See how that turned out. Why was he racing for Honda at the Suzuka 8hr? Why was he so eager to fill in for Dani? Having a family does not give you work satisfaction. I feel he is secretly longing for a return.
