MotoGP » Smith: Seventh is difficult to swallow


Noriben, Absolutely agree with you on the assessment from last season. There is no challenging the fact that Pol had a terrific rookie season, and put Smith in his place. Pol may well be the more naturally talented rider. Thing is, it isn't all about natural talent. Intellect, work ethic, and temperament play a big part. Smith now appears to be using those talents to good effect. I think 6 to 2 against Pol this season, the same in qualifying. All this with Pol getting the pick of the parts (assuming they are better parts!). I say well done Pol for making an impression in his first season, and well done Smith for not taking it lying down, continuing to get better and better, and coming back stronger. Best of all we have two team mates fairly equally matched, which will provide us with entertainment for the rest of the season.

MotoGP » Catalunya MotoGP test times - Monday (Final)


Realist:
TrueFan: Nice to see Bradders top the time sheets. Swiss Judge... LMAO. Eat humble pie and admit you are completely clueless when it comes to judging motorcycle talent!
What exactly did Swiss Judge say that has you up in arms?
SwissJudge, along with SuperSic58 and Fullofit, have led the charge amongst Smith's detractors. According to them he never deserved his ride, and there are hundreds of better riders in the world.

MotoGP » Espargaro repeats fall, takes positives to Aragon test


Rockstar84: At this rate, Suzuki would be better off making Mav, the no. 1 rider, rather than the Espagaro, who keeps crashing while flattering to deceive.
Well they are all uber talented at this level, but it should come as no surprise that Vinales is leading Espargaro. Vinales is a former world champion, and three times third place, numerous wins etc etc. Espargaro has been racing for ten years, and has had 2 podiums. There is a reason for that. He is doing a decent job, and has for other teams, but after numerous years in MotoGP he has probably maxed out. Vinales on the other hand will no doubt already be turning the heads of all the works teams.

MotoGP » MotoGP ‘coming more naturally’ to Redding


I do hope Scott can turn things around. He is clearly a talented lad. For me it isn't really about the bike. It is about Scott's ability to analyse what is happening, work with the engineers, adapt his style, and get the most out of the package. Smith has had even more critics than Scott, yet his analytical approach is showing results. Taken a while. but getting there. So the question is does Scott have the same racing intellect to be able to get the most out of the package. Can he analyse his own performance, that of the bike, and feed back to the team? The jury is still out. Wish him every success.
