MotoGP » Marquez beats Mees in Superprestigio


Tetley: Sorry, but your scenario is flawed. Once Mees had his "few more laps" and had got in front, we can equally say that , "Given a few more laps" , Marquez would have repassed Mees for the Victory. Or maybe you think the race should end when Mees got in front ? The race stops when the flag falls. Marquez won. Mees didn't. No amount of "if"s and imaginary scenarios will change that. Anything else is pure speculation and wishful thinking.
No need to be sorry. Anything beyond what actually happened is exactly that, speculation. That's why I specifically said "I think" which means that is what I think. You think differently, good for you. Did you read into my comment somehow that I didn't think Marc deserved the win or that I was arguing the results? Not at all. Relax bud, it's a discussion board.

MotoGP » Marquez beats Mees in Superprestigio


madh4tt3r: Pity Baker had injuries but Marc still but Mees so there is no doubt he is extremely talented and fast whatever he rides. The only thing I dont like about Marc is that whenever you read an article about him, there is always mention of contact, either involving him or right next to him. I understand he is aggressive and you need to do what it takes to win, but touching the front guys swing arm and causing his race to be over is a big no-no. ...
Baker didn't have a problem putting him in the dirt last year. But that was more Marc's own doing than Bakers.. Racing MM, and especially on a short track and short race like the Superprestigio, you have to get aggressive. Given a few more laps I think Mees would have found the time to make his move...but he didn't have a few more laps. He would have had to bully MM out of the way and probably should have. MM would have done it for certain. One thing for sure, the stage has already been set for next yea

MotoGP » Marc Marquez moving to Andorra?


Look at how governments squander and mismanage their citizens money! Big business and the rich/well connected get all the breaks while suckers who play by the rules take it in the...yeow! Even at 10mil per year that doesn't put MM in the truly elite category. 49% tax???? They'd get the one finger salute from me too as I crossed the border. The US will take 40% of your salary if you make over $400k per year. That's just Federal income tax. Not to mention state income tax, sales tax, property tax, capital gains tax, air transportation tax, liquor tax, cig tax, fishing and hunting licenses fees (nope, its a tax), garbage collection, drivers license fees (nope, they are taxes), hotel tax, social security tax, telephone 911 service tax, service charge tax, toll booth tax, recreational vehicle tax, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. I could go on forever. Our founding fathers must be rolling in their graves. F$$K YOU government! Oh wait, I think there is a dirty word tax I owe now.

MotoGP » Yamaha: We have two riders that can beat Marc


Anyone who thinks MM only won so many races this year because he had a superior bike or JL was unscrambling his eggs the first half the year is crazy. MM went toe to toe in one race with each alien, VR, JL, and DP and came out on top. He out rode them. Period. In the other races he won, he may have battled for a corner or two with them but eventually beat them pretty easily. Almost every championship ever won was done on an excellent bike. To say the Yamaha just needs more edge grip and JL will erase MM's dominance is silly. MM will win next year too. He won't have as many race wins but he'll have the championship wrapped up with a race or two left on the schedule. And I'm a VR fan that would love nothing more than to see Val get one more championship. He is still awesome on the bike and can pull off a championship with some luck thrown his way. But he is at a disadvantage against MM "equal" bikes or not.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


In general I'd say Rossi is correct with the 80/20 (who can really put an accurate percentage on such a thing?). But there are years when a certain bike stands out. The Honda has clearly been there the last 3-4 years. But I don't think that is solely the reason any rider who has won a championship on it won it. And particularly not this year with MM. He may not have 10 wins in a row if he were on the M1. But I bet he'd still be leading the championship.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


Dani is a better measure than Marc to gauge the superiority of the Honda. He has a longer history of results and riding style to compare to the current bike. Dani is about where he always is in the championship. Solid podium finisher who can pull off a race win on any given day. But always 2nd or 3rd in the championship at the end of it all. The biggest differences I can see with Dani on the Honda now is 1. He is a much better on the brakes than I've ever seen him. Hayden mentioned this in an interview during the Indy MotoGP as well and said Dani had been working on his braking. 2. He is crashing less. For 2-3? years it looked like Dani had a legitimate chance for the championship but then seemed to have a late season crash or series of crashes and get injured slowing him down and losing to many points. Were MM not in the picture and JL not self-destructing at the beginning of the season, JL, DP, and VR would all be neck and neck for the championship right now, probably. So,

MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


LeisureSuitLarry: I seem to recall that when Rossi was on the Honda he disputed that it was just the machine. He was quoted as saying it was 80% the rider, 20% the bike. Fair enough, I'll buy that, although how he can reconcile that statement to his days on the Ducati I'm not quite sure. Anyway, equally the same must apply therefore with Marc Marquez. 80% him, 20% the Honda? Sauce for the goose and all that. ...
The Ducati has proven itself to be a particularly crappy bike. Excluding Stoner's success, some very good riders have not been able to do better, regularly or without circumstances, than 6th-8th place. That shows the bike was only capable of being ridden only so fast and most everyone who has ridden it could take it to its fastest point and that was it. How can you explain Nicky and Rossi battling wheel to wheel for two seasons? Or the two Duc's almost inevitably battling just with each other every race?
