MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks


8 races is a pretty good run to base opinions on. Fact is MM did fall off 3 times, and if he continues to take those risks he will at some point get injured. He is taking those risks because that is one of the way he stays in front. A snapped collar bone, or a broken wrist are only one crash away. If it happens then Rossi and JL will be fighting for the championship. Maybe DP. Rossi, JL, and DP have all lost championships because of injury. Chances are its going to happen to MM. If I had to bet whilst I know where my money would be, I wouldn't be so sure about the 2015 champion just yet.

MotoGP » Smith targets top satellite rider plaudits


mark.james.7374: Well I fear the two brothers will get the better of smith?, just wished smith had a little more aggressiveness in his riding ability, not going to look very good for him, if he finishes behind his team mate who's a rookie, plus the other brother who's on more of a inferior bike to smith, oh well he might just fit into bsb that little bit easier, where I think he should be anyway!!?
BSB has just been won by a veteran who never quite made it at the premier level. If you think BSB riders are at the same level of riding as the top 10 in the premier class then you haven't really thought it through. I agree that sometimes he seems to lack aggression, but a more cautious approach has paid off in the last couple of races.

MotoGP » Smith: I don't want the season to end!


Strex: He should have at least had a go at passing Bradl on the last lap but instead he just closed in, needs some raw aggression!
He did close in. Catching quickly in the last two laps. In fact he nearly overshot the last corner having a go. The lack of aggression appeared to be on the first couple of laps, but then aggression didn't work out too well for some of the others. Good solid points finishes of late whilst the others chuck it away. Almost the reverse of the situation earlier in the season. Lets hope Pol is back for the final round. It'll be good to see the two of them battling it out.

MotoGP » Glass caused Espargaro oil fall, out of qualifying


TrueFan: To paraphrase Sir Humphrey, "So Scott alerted you to a problem, but you carried on bravely. That was a very brave decision, sir..." I hope Pol's foot recovers quickly. Fortunately, motorcycle racers are a tough breed.
Top quote! Pol's having a brilliant Rookie season, but didn't prove to be the sharpest tool today. Hope they get him on his feet for tomorrow.

F1 » Smedley: Closed F1 cockpits ‘very easy to implement’


Nick, that green flag at first look appears to be truly bizarre. The flag should only be waved at the marshall post after the incident. Waved yellows whilst anything or anyone is on a live circuit. I doubt it contributed to the crash as I suspect he had lost control before he saw the green flag, if he ever did. With the marshall next to the crane it could have been even worse. I don't think closed cockpits are a good idea. Takes too much away from the spectacle, and the bravery. The FIA should concentrate on why he crashed when waved yellows were out. I was very much of the opinion that a waved yellow means slow down sufficiently to definitely not crash, and to be able to take avoiding action (I've raced and marshalled so know how this works). Despite that he still crashed. Then Raikonnen said it is still possible to crash having backed off, so I'll go with his word. Question then is what use are double yellows if drivers cannot guarantee not crashing when people/equipment a
