MotoGP » Injured Lorenzo pulls out of ROC


RealRacingCampaign I agree with you that the behaviour of some fans has been disgraceful and shameful for the sport. However, this has been true of both sides not just VR fans, as there has been a lot of vitriol and abuse towards VR and ALL his fans. Posting multiple comments on the same thread could equally be perceived as trying to batter people into submission... I am a more moderate VR fan and I don't necessarily agree with his actions or outbursts over the last few weeks of the season. However, I can understand them. I am upset that he did not win the championship but with the most objective hat I can have I still firmly believe MM did not race for the best result he could at Valencia and simply rode to ensure JL won the championship. His race was completely out of character. Even JL said so. His motives for doing this are irrelevant and the fact that VR and JL rode to the max does not make any difference to whether MMs actions would be considered race fixing or not. Very few peo

MotoGP » Injured Lorenzo pulls out of ROC


I and many others are not overlooking or saying VRs actions on or off track were okay towards the end of the season (I appreciate some are but let's ignore that section for now). However, RealRacingCampaign and ondablade we are all saying the same thing but from a different angle...that essentially everyone should be treated equally and there should not be hypocrisy. Based on that Is it okay under any circumstances to potentially have "fixed" a race and championship by not doing your best for the highest finish you could? No. Is it any more okay because it is harder to prove than a public outburst in press conferences or extensive slowing down and straightening on track in the middle of a race? No I don't think so. Is it okay not to be at least investigated? No. Is it any more okay to push a rider to the limit unnecessarily risking both of you crashing on several occasions near the start of a race just because you are p*****d at them and it is just inside the rules? No. Who has been

MotoGP » Injured Lorenzo pulls out of ROC


Very few people want to recognise this possibility and it is all too easy to label it as being a "yellow" noser or sore loser. The potential the championship result was fixed and that no-one wants to acknowledge this or investigate it is as cancerous to the sport as the reactions of the more extreme fans. I would be saddened if this view is again labelled as me being an extremist. I just want to see genuine racing and don't want to waste a whole season following a championship that MAY WELL have been fixed at the last race. If people can put their hatred for VR and his previous actions to one side I wonder how many would say they came away with a genuine feeling that they had watched a real race at Valencia and the season deciders EVERYONE was entitled to.

RealRacingCampaign I know many VR fans including me who were not whipped up into a frenzy by his press conferences and think at least some of his behaviour has been wrong. However, you still do not answer or deal with the related but separate issue of whether that condones potential race or championship fixing by MM, which surely is as much of a threat to the sport?

MotoGP » ‘Time is a gentleman’ in Marquez, Rossi rift


People are so keen to sweep this under the carpet (Dorna, FIM, Suppo, Jarvis etc.). I've even had this comment blocked on others sites - not quite sure why...Regardless of what we all think, there is enough objective evidence to suggest a significant possibility that MM deliberately raced to ensure a Spanish champion. Lorenzo even said so himself after the race. There is evidence available in the form of MMs previous race behaviour and data from the bike in the race vs. practice sessions. I can't believe therefore that Dorna or the FIM are not investigating. I saw someone say a few pages back that there is no legal issue but in any other sport where fixing is a possibility it is thoroughly investigated and penalties or bans are given if appropriate or proven. This has nothing to do with who you think should have won the championship it is about seeing real and genuine racing. I also think there is a legal case for anyone who bet money on Rossi winning the championship.

MotoGP » Honda postpones Sepang data - again


Couple of things. Livio if Vale had been in front of Marc on Sunday would he have attempted an overtake? If you answer honestly that gives you the reason people don't believe Marc was desperately trying to win the race. Secondly, can someone please point out to FIM/Dorna that carpets are flammable so that huge one they are trying to sweep this fire under is fuel in itself. Finally, let's think about the possibilities of what the Honda data shows... 1. We know it cannot directly prove or disprove a kick only that the brake was applied and when 2. It can show whether Marc turned in and/or accelerated into the side of Rossi 3. It can also show the DEGREE to which Marc was trying to slow Vale up (e.g. brake checks mid corner etc.) I personally cannot believe how people do not believe Marc was desperately trying to win that race...Livio one question - if Rossi had been in front on Sunday would Marc have attempted an overtake? Your answer will tell you if Marc was desperately trying to

MotoGP » Jarvis: Enough of the polemics, let's move on


Lin you miss the point. It is not just the militant and "blind" VR supporters, it is numerous moderates and neutrals (yes I am neither Spanish nor Italian Mr Jarvis) who have a problem here. A lack of overtake by MM on JL was totally out of character and combined with the retake on DP ensured that neither of them would beat JL. You could almost guarantee that if it was VR in front MM would have tried something. That is MM fixing a race and deciding who would be champion and that is what is stopping many people being able to focus on the sport, which you are urging everyone to do. Congratulations to Yamaha though you thoroughly deserved the championship and 1-2.

MotoGP » Honda refutes Rossi's accusations


Mr Nakamoto - regardless of how Mr Rossi has acted in the last few weeks your reigning world champion did not ride for the best result he could in the last two races. On Sunday he made no attempt to win the race and stopped his faster teammate from doing so. His actions fixed the final race of the season and through these actions he decided who would be world champion. He has put you in a position of having to defend him and brought dishonour to you, Honda and the MotoGP series. PS. now the CAS preliminary hearing and the championship are over where is the data that you and Mr Suppo were going to release about Sepang?
