MotoGP » Wet podium ends Dovi drought

ProfessorX: funny how that Ducati performs when it's not on the control rubber slicks. Decent result from Dovi, hope he can keep it rolling on. One wonders how many wins they would have post Stoner had they not been obliged to ride on the Japanese rubber.
Teams don't test and design their bikes for wet races. A motorcycle's frame, chassis will behave differently (and often outside its performance envelope) with the softer settings of the suspension and reduced load/g-forces of running a wet race. Ducati's seeming wet prowess cannot be extrapolated to pace on a sunny day. Its better handling in the wet is an accident. That is why I hate wet races, it is like playing the football world cup on a sandy beach.

MotoGP » Marquez: Title fight over as floating feeling returns

Garcia: Don't worry Marc, you have already done more than anyone can possibly do on that bike. You have been brave every race and done everything you possibly could. Hopefully next year Honda will give you a better bike. Now forget the preassure of the championship and go have fun in the next races, give us some more great battles! Go Marc!!!
I thought he won the championship on that bike last year. hmmm
Its not the same bike. Things change too fast in MotoGP. Beneath the liveries, everything from the engine to the tyres have changed. Yamahas have made and incredible amount of progress in 2015, partly due to the new edge treated tyres introduced this season by Bridgestone. Yamahas are finishing the races about 10's of seconds earlier than last year.

MotoGP » Rossi: This is MotoGP - you can never relax

reinmacre: When Rossifumi won on the first year of the RCV5 at Suzuka(?) the conditions where atrocious, with so much water on the track, the amount of spray and hydroplaning was insane. There was VR46, backing that bike into and sliding out of practically every turn. The clinic Vale put on that day forever gave anyone who witnessed that race all they needed to know how special Rossi is. Today was easy.
I know we're stressing this into annoyance, but to top what you said, those were tough bike to ride, I really wonder how many of the current grid would have simply finished that race with one of those 2 strokes.
RCV5 a 2 storke? Infact RCV5 was the first one in the line of easier to ride bikes. The bike was so good, well behaved and fast it was making team Yamahas looks like clueless tools.

MotoGP » Marquez: Title fight over as floating feeling returns

twonha: Now that his title fight is essentially over, he no longer needs to finish ahead of Rossi and Lorenzo and he can settle for podiums if conditions demand it. He has given this title fight everything he had, but the '15 engine is just too uncontrollable and sends the frame, rear tyres and everything into disarray.
Why bother with points if the championship is practically over for him? I'd say give his fans something to cherish about and try to win more races than the eventual winner of the championship.
