MotoGP » PICS: Rossi, Marquez final turn Assen showdown


Cris Zarate: It's clear on the picture and video footage that without Rossi there, Marquez will overshoot the corner because even with the contact, he still ended up with both wheels off the track... So I don't understand the reason behind Marquez thinking he won... He is the most aggressive rider currently and he is also the luckiest who don't pick up penalty... Remember when he hit Alvaro's Aprilia in Qatar that made the brake line loose, the move was so aggressive that ended Alvaro's race in the first lap... This move is similar, only Rossi came out on top...
For the second time Valentino has survived Marquez running into him. How many more times can he before MM takes him out?

MotoGP » Espargaro: Looks like anything goes on last corner...


Pol is spot on. Bradley Smith? Uh whatever. It's called protecting you line and is the expected technique. Riders who are good at it are often said to have good "racecraft". Nothing even remotely questionable about protecting your line. It's this simple, two objects cannot be in the space at the same time. Unless you are Marc Marquez, you know this from physics class. He must have skipped that course in high school. Pol is right, even if a rider is way back, he can just barge into the corner and bump the rider on the outside slowing him down more than enough (if not take him out) and then jump out way a head of him. The rider on the outside is always at the most disadvantage in this situation. He will be stood up or bumped. Either way losing time.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


Stellar: Thank you Mr. Webb, summed it up very very well. Marquez and his fans need to swallow some pride and accept when he makes a mistake. He's used his bike as a battering ram and other riders as bump stop for countless times in his career. He clearly has a lot of talent and determination to win but hope he doesn't ruin the outcome of championship by torpedoing Lorenzo or Rossi later in the season. But it's very difficult to imagine he'll change that, he's bound to collect one of them or both at some stage.
So sad but true.Twice he has battled with Rossi this year and twice he has crashed into Rossi trying to make a pass that wasn't there. The really sad part is he will eventually crash Rossi (or Lorenzo) out and ruin a great season for everyone.

MotoGP » Rossi sizzles with record Assen pole


Wob58:
Number76: Let's just hope that if it comes to a wheel to wheel battle between MM and VR, that Marc "nothing to lose" Marquez doesn't pull one of his patented boneheaded overtake...er....take out moves and ruin Rossi's championship hopes.
"Patented boneheaded overtake take out moves" when were these then??????
Here almost took out Rossi this year (took himself out instead), came in to hot and came within inches of running into the back of Lorenzo, took out Pedrosa in Aragon 2013 coming in the corner to hot, hit Bautista in Qatar, the list goes on and on and on. Go back to Moto2 and 3 to see many more.

MotoGP » Caught out Marquez left with ‘nothing to lose’


""Today I took the risk and people will say 'why don't you finish the race'. Sure I can finish the race 20 seconds behind but you know it is not my style. Yesterday I say that now I am at the point where I need to take risks if I want to win this championship, but I cannot lose any race. I tried. We lose the race,..." "I cannot lose any race. We lose the race...", haha, okay then. I think someone at HRC needs to have a talk to Marc. I would not want my rider saying this. Jorge was way back in points not to long ago too and fought his way back. Marc doesn't know how to accept anything less than 1st and he rides like a buffoon when it is out of his grasp. It might be commendable if he didn't put other riders in such jeopardy doing it. Last year it was easy to forget, even forgive, his first year antics. He convinced you he was past riding like that. Not so. Is it his ego? Others are not deserving enough for him to lose too? He may have nothing to lose but other riders do. T

MotoGP » Bridgestone recommended the extra-hard


john.robertson.5203: Still trying to figure this out...Bridgestone make the tyres,they Analise them chemically and physically , before and after each test session in consultation with there own engineers and chemists.....And some smart ass mechanic or rider chooses something other then what is recommended to them by the manufacturer......Am i missing something here or are I just plain dumb.
Sorry man but you asked...the answer is just plain dumb. MM saw Rossi's lap times in practice and knew he could not compete on the extra hard. He made a gamble and went with the hard. His race strategy was to build to as big a gap as he could and hope Rossi couldn't overcome it. It was actually pretty crafty and a bold move. Rossi only caught him at the very end. If not for the crash (that was the dumb part from MM) he would have had a nice 2nd place finish and would have been second in the points.

MotoGP » Bridgestone recommended the extra-hard


There was noting unsafe about the hard tire. Bridgestone said it would wear more by the end of the race. Not disintegrate. These riders are well aware of when their tires are going off and can feel when to back off. If they can't accept that and override the tire even though it is telling them what to do, that's on them. Doesn't mean it is an unsafe tire. An unsafe tire is one that doesn't warn you or deteriorates like what happened at Phillips Island in 2013.
