MotoGP » Nakamoto wants greater usability from 2015 Honda

Seems like a traditional problem for Honda to me. Honda always had zero problems to make the most powerful engine in the field, and make it reliable. However, creating a great chassis has often been a struggle. Yamaha, always the other way around. You can go back to the likes of Rainey and such, and see the same picture: Yamaha down on power to the Honda, but much better handling.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks

@Yearby23 Photos don't say nothing. When you watch him on live TV, you often see his smiles and congratulations are for the cameras, not because they are honestly meant. People can pick up on that even if there is just the slightest hint of it not being entirely genuine. When Rossi on the other hand is goofing around with Marquez, you know it is real. I like Lorenzo and he is a very different character than those two. So for all I know, he true feelings are just that he is annoyed that his best wasn't good enough. But the smiles will still feel fake if his heart ain't doin the smilin.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden makes Honda RC213V-RS debut

Amen to that Bob. It doesn't matter how many times you win, by the end of the season all that matters is who collected the most points of the year. Marquez may have won 14 races this season, but if he crashed out of the races he didn't win, Rossi would have been champ. It's not about how many you win, it's about how many point you can collect when you don't.

MotoGP » Marquez: New Honda needs change of direction

Abefan: Doohan did all his winning with hrc, does that mean he wasn't a legend
No, but it sure doesn't help As long as Honda is by far the winningest manufacturer the last twenty years and continues its dominance riders will want to show they can also win for the underdog. It's just the nature of being a competitor which Marquez certainly is.
Make that last 30 years for 500cc/motogp and last 55 years over all classes. In fact, they are the most successful constructor in the history of the premier GP class, the 250/Moto2 and 125/moto3. They have collected 63 constructor championships since their first two in 1960 of which 21in the premier class. Very, very impressive record.

F1 » Button: Money no issue in F1 future

Button's problem is not his ability on or off the track, but he's too nice and too invisible. He seems to think that acting normal is being crazy enough, which I like, but as the saying goes: there is no such thing as bad publicity. The guys that draw publicity, put the lights on the team and the sponsors and that since exposure means money, that's what makes teams happy. Button is more like the guy next door. Good at what he does and allround nice guy, but he shuns the limelight.

F1 » Vettel ‘not allowed’ to announce F1 future

fearenside: God.! I absolutely hated watching Schumacher collide with Hill and Villeneuve. One of those acts of deliberately endangering life actually won him a world championship. There is still room for sportsmanship in sport. The current generation of drivers i respect much more.
The one with Hill was Hill's fault, not Schumacher. Even Hill admitted such a few years back. The other one though.... Then again, the greatest champions are always prepared to do whatever it takes. Even if its dirty or dangerous.

MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa take MotoGP to Indonesia

@Truefan while that is very true, numbers don't tell the whole story. Virtually all bikes of those numbers are 250cc or smaller and priced at a point where everyone can have one. Compare that to a CBR1000RR here in the west, and you'd have to sell a lot of those little bikes before you create the same revenue and profit for a single CBR1000RR. That said, considering Honda sells roughly 12 million bikes globally and if over 4.5 million of those are sold in Indonesia it clearly is a rather significant market.

F1 » FIA: ‘Nothing could have been done better’ post-crash

The green was waved past the accident site, not before. It is normal (and correct) to wave green once you have passed the accident site. The fault here is with the drivers. Double yellow means slow down and be prepared to stop. Not lift a bit and continue. If they want to avoid accidents like this, they should not create more rules, they should rigorously enforce existing ones. For instance 10 race suspension and a $5mil fine for not slowing down to the point of being able to stop on a dime when there are double yellow flags waved. Oh and force them to be present at the track on those races. These guys need to understand double yellow is not waved for the safety of the drivers, but for the safety of the marshals and other track side staff. Perhaps if they are forced to sit half the season out on the sidelines it will get through their thick skulls.
