MotoGP » Yamaha working on seamless downshifts


@Guna4699: Point is Rossi claimed Stoner's speed was because of his trust in the electronics. Then we found out Stoner used less traction control than Rossi himself would end up using once he got on to the Ducati. In other words Rossi was proved wrong about his assumptions. Hence why at the end of his Ducati tenure, Rossi had to admit that he couldn't understand how Stoner made the difference on the Ducati, because all the assumptions Rossi had about Stoner were wrong in the first place.

MotoGP » 'Within a second' - Redding's target in Qatar


Scott is merely a good rider who's capabilities are overrated by mostly the brits, while Marc will go down in history as one of the best riders the sport as ever seen, possibly even the best. Scott's career stats are less impressive than someone like Bradl, who for the most part was average at best on a factory Honda. I suspect that when it's all set and done Scott won't look much better on the Honda than Bradl did.

MotoGP » 'Within a second' - Redding's target in Qatar


@ tuonogeorge: Weight disadvantage is the same tired excuse people always use for Redding's lack of consistent winning, but funnily enough Simoncelli was the same build and almost the same weight as Redding is now when he was around, yet he actually managed to win a title in 250cc. And talking about Marc's supposed weight advantage, you do know Marc weighs the same as Stoner did right, and that both of them are 7-8kg heavier than Pedrosa. I never heard people bleating about Stoner having a weight advantage over Lorenzo/Rossi. How much has Pedrosa's supposed weight advantage helped him over the likes of Stoner and Marquez ?????

MotoGP » 'Within a second' - Redding's target in Qatar


Scott didn't beat Marc a number of times in Moto 2. He only beat him once in Silverstone 2012, and that's it. Every other race that they finished together, Marc finished ahead of Scott. People should check the facts before stating things that didn't actually happen. Trying to use Silverstone 2012 as any kind of evidence that Scott is as good Marc is as foolish as claiming Elias was as good as Rossi because he beat him that 1 time to a race win on a Sattelite Honda at Estoril in 2006. People can make all the excuses in the world for Scott, but the fact is Scott isn't anywhere near Marc's level as a rider and never will be. Anyone who tries to argue otherwise is kidding themselves.......

It wouldn't be the first time Rossi was proved wrong. When Stoner was cleaning the floor with everyone on the Ducati, Rossi claimed it was because of the trust Stoner had in the electronics and superior Bridgestones. He was right about the Bridgestones being superior to the Michelins, but he was wrong about everything else. When Stoner started winning less and less Rossi said that Stoner wasn't pushing hard enough. Eventually it was Rossi's go on the Ducati and only then did Rossi come to realise that Stoner could do things on a bike that just Rossi couldn't, and that Stoner used less traction control on the Ducati than Rossi did. It's like history is repeating itself....

MotoGP » 'Late' debut for 2015 Ducati


@ RDix: Using logic how can Iannone realistically beat Pedrosa on the same bike when he can't even get the better of Dovi on a consistent basis when it matters. He has beaten Dovi to the flag only twice so far this season. Dovi is the same guy that got stomped by a healthy Pedrosa. On most days Iannone wouldn't get near Pedrosa. Being fast in practice and during qualifying when following faster riders doesn't prove much. He has his moments but is a bit overrated by some around here. He isn't half as good as a lot of people around here are making him out to be. Because if he was he would be beating Dovi, which he clearly isn't.

MotoGP » Dovizioso credits Marquez’s crazy lines


@ mrfill: Sorry but Motogp bikes aren't Formula 1 cars. They don't rely on downforce and aerodynamics for their cornering speeds, so there isn't the dirty air coming off the rider in front to seriously upset the rider following behind. There are no real disadvantages for the following rider but huge advantages for them to be gained. Following fast riders shows the slower rider what lines to take to get a significantly faster laptime( hence why Dovi himself even states that Marc's crazy lines help him achieve the laptime) that the slower rider just wouldn't be able to achieve on their own. If it wasn't such a big advantage no rider would never get into the tow and follow faster riders around the whole lap in the first place, and you wouldn't see front runners purposely slow down to prevent their championship rivals following them on a fast lap. It was Ducati's use of the soft rear tyre that can offer up to 0.5 secs a lap over the medium that enabled Dovi to keep pace with Marc.
