MotoGP » Lorenzo and Yamaha: One or two years?


Dorna dont build bikes, but they do make back room deals to get a certain rider back on competitive machinery. Remember the slip of the tongue from Uncle Carmello months before it was even announced. "I am calm. Valentino next year will be riding a competitive bike, but I [can't] tell you what it is. It is still too early to talk about: in 2013 we will see Rossi fight for the win... again.” That sounds a lot like an entity that is supposed to be neutral pulling strings to alter competition

MotoGP » Bradley Smith: Nothing yet for 2015


KnowNothingKnowsNothing:
KnowNothing: ...I think the only real mystery is how he got that ride in the first place...
Same excrement, different day with you, isn't it? You not got anything better to do? Feel free to get out a bit, enjoy the sunshine, find a hobby, you'll be better for it.
Its not a mystery why someone can be fast for one lap but not a full race. The greats have exceptional mental acuity , the also rans dont. The ability to concentrate at maximum levels for the duration of a contest is the difference. Except for a few, i wouldnt bet who could lay down a fastest time in a one lap trial. But get them on the track together where the conditions are variable for 45 minutes, they tend to sort themselves out. Somewhere between 8=10 is who Bradley is, and it would change hardly at all if you gave him Rossi's bike for the rest of the year. You tell us what Bradley accomplished on the racetrack that warranted him being rewarded

MotoGP » Lorenzo and Yamaha: One or two years?


therealDave: Now a real conspiracy would have to be Brazil conceeding 7 goals, 4 of which came in 20 minutes?????? Someone out there has a very valuable docket! Back to GP, Dorna do change the rules a lot but not to specifically favour one team or rider but to try and make the sport more entertaining for viewers. We want closer racing. I personally couldnt give 2 hoots about lap times and race times, I want to see 4 a breast in a group or 8 going into the last corners of the last lap. I want to see Moto3 racing in Motogp damn it. And that is what Dorna are trying to replicate. It takes time and incremental changes (hense it seems like the rules are constantly changing). NO CONSPIRACY.
Speak for your self, i detest manipulated competition for entertainment value, especially in what is supposed to be the pinnacle of its prospective sport

@Brain all except Jlo seem to have been advantaged. Not sure why you single out VR. The larger disk was a safety body initiative which directly represents the riders group view. All did not want the new discs introduced. Like i said, Honda protested the move,their bikes were doing just fine with the 320 mm discs. In the name of safety, you really are gullible.

Looks like you just shot your own theory in the foot. Rossi was not fighting for "the win" in 2013, so apparently the string Dorna pulled flushed a toilet somewhere instead of giving VR wins. Further, a "competitive bike" could be just about anything above a CRT except the Duc.
He did win in 2013 and was much more competitive than his previous2 years. Now look at the moves to make him more competitive for 2014 . What does Rossi like in a tire, super stiff carcass, what do we get, a super stiff carcass. Rossi complains about braking, Dorna allows larger discs that they had previously banned ,a move that Honda protested.

therealDave:
BJR: The pressure on the track would be nothing compared to the political BS running in the background. Brain is 100% right that Dorna want a Rossi vs MM show and that's what they're working on. Slow down the Honda's and speed up Rossi's Yamaha. Jlo's not stupid, he got a hand up from Dorna and Bridgestone in 2012 and he knows it. He also knows he's just an extra now that Dorna got Rossi back on to a competitive machine like they promised they would when it was clear the Ducati storyline wasn't paying out. He's probably getting Ben Spies's end of the pineapple now as it's contract time and Yamaha want to sign him up for less. I know I'd knobble his ride this season and make him look bad so nobody else would want him if I were Yamaha so I could sign him cheap for another 2 years..
WOW....with all that script writing and power over results that you claim Dorna has, why didn't the rossi / ducati script work??????
Dorna

therealDave: "Yamaha's advancement in braking is 95 % the new stiffer Bridgestone carcass that Rossi prefers. If you go back to last years tires, Lorenzo is 2nd and Rossi is back to 4th. The new tire has been good for Rossi, but a disaster for the team as a whole. Last year at least the bike won races,this year it feels better for Rossi but the team is getting crushed, but hey, at least Rossi is happy." @Brian, Your assessment opens the door for the very legitimate question.....does this mean Jlos performances on the tyre he likes (2013 & prior) are due largley to those tyres? You cannot say the biggest change is the tyre and so that explains his form turn around without implying his good from was due to the tyres he liked. Just my opinion but quite sound logic I would argue!
The tires change every year, i suppose its possible that this years tires are the hardest, low edge grip tire he has ridden in his GP career.
