MotoGP » Smith: Why didn't we try this yesterday!

Bryan277: But some might say that few, if any have progressed under their wing. Edwards & Toseland went backwards. Spies flunked and retired. Crutchlow flunked and went back to a private team. Only Dovizioso has come away from Tech3 untainted.
Actually, I believe Tech 3 led Spies to a factory Yam, which he flunked on. How interesting that the Spies fans blamed Tech 3 as well. Of those you mention, Dovi was the only one with more than flash in the pan top 5 talent.
You'll probably find that Spies was contracted to Yamaha but was forced into Tech 3 because of the "Rookie Rule". I think he may even have had a few choice parts that normal Tech 3 riders didn't get at the time.

MotoGP » Smith: Why didn't we try this yesterday!

At this level it is not a riders job to set a bike up, why do you think they have those people called engineers, to wave pom poms and cheer? It is up to the engineers to set the bike up according to rider feedback and if it takes a technical meeting to raise a few ideas then the team should have been having this on Saturday before race day warm up, ergo, bad management. If Pol on the other hand is doing well and happy with his bike already then carry on as normal.

MotoGP » Redding: My aim is to beat Crutchlow

Last year Scot pointed at the factory Hondas and said,"give me one of those bikes and I would be doing what they are doing" (paraphrased), I think he was alluding to being top 10 / top 6 or whatever. But now he is saying it is a more difficult bike to ride and has a miriad of excuses (which people are only to willing to cling on to) as to why he may not achieve this goal. He will not get close to Crutchlow and with the hugely competitive grid this season (there are now many more capable bikes out there) he will still struggle to qualify in the top 12. Knock fairings with MM? Yeah, only when he is being lapped!

MotoGP » Moto3 Malaysia - Race Results

Whilst Millers passes may be viewed as borderline he actually chose 1 inside line and stuck to it, he didn't deviate into another rider, the outside rider turned onto Miller so if Race Direction penalises those moves then we may as well have time trial rather than racing. Now, wasn't Marc Marquez who was described as " he puts his bike into positions and lets the other rider decide on the consequences"(paraphrased)? If anyone recorded this race have a look at what A. Marquez did to Miller going into turn 1, about two thirds into the race. Marquez on the inside actually sat his bike up on purpose to make contact with Miller, that was a deliberate ram.

MotoGP » PICS: Riders take part in ‘Waterfall’ test

MotoGp Rulebook. Chapter 5, Section 7, Paragraph 4. When a corner which requires negotiation on the cooler side of the tyre the corner will be reshaped in order to remove any original thinking or gambling by riders. This means Dorna have the opportunity to remove as many last ditch effort area for riders chasing a win, podium, one place higher to push the envelope. If all rider know it can be a dodgy corner, some will ease off, some will push on in the hope of an advantage but all will be aware of the risk.
