MotoGP » Smith: Signed, seamless, ready to deliver


TBF (and I'm not a Brad basher) he has not performed at the level he really needs to so far in his premier class career IMHO. He was very difficult to judge in Moto2 as that mistral is a dog of a thing and to be fair he was mega fast when they let him have a go on (what I believe was) Lorenzo's bike at the end of year test at Valencia, so the lad does have speed. If Yamaha put a competitive machine underneath him then he simply has to start getting results on the thing. Everyone knows that the Tech3 bike is pretty good so there's no real excuse for him finishing behind guys on (what most assume to be) inferior machinery. The excuses have to stop I'm afraid, going forward it has to be regular top 6 finishes at minimum...wish him the best of luck.

MotoGP » Redding waiting on Gresini for MotoGP 2015


It's got nothing to do with entitlement, Scott is right it would be a waste of one of the prime years of his career to spend another season on an open class machine. He's proved he is worthy of a shot on a competitive bike and one way or another he needs to get on board one for 2015. Hopefully Gresini will get their funding issues sorted and the original plan will remain, if not then I suspect he will need to consider other options (if they exist?).

MotoGP » More UK viewers watched BSB than MotoGP?


155,000 viewers for live coverage of the supposed pinnacle of 2 wheeled motor racing????!!! That s****y BBC gymnastic program averaged 3.2 million on Saturday evening FFS!!! Seriously Dorna what have you done to our sport and more importantly how do you honestly expect the teams to hang on to their sponsors with pitiful viewing figures like that? Lets put this into context, there were nearly half that amount watching last years race in the flesh at Silverstone last year!, seriously that is beyond shocking. If there is anyway of getting out of that BT deal it needs to be looked at and fast. Hell, I would even welcome Charlie Cox back if it meant getting this sport back on a platform where people could actually watch it!

MotoGP » More UK viewers watched BSB than MotoGP?


Shrimpling:
One point in relation to the numbers I believe a lot of viewers watch online or via the App which is not recorded in the reported viewing numbers.
Same goes for those who watched BSB on the Eurosport online player or via the app, Xbox/PS3 app or whatever, it's a valid comparison and however you may wish to dress it up 155,000 viewers for a live MotoGP race is truly pathetic. If this continues the sponsors will walk.
