MotoGP » Rossi picks favourite MotoGP bikes

Given that Marquez has this season in the bag, could we get them all to ride NSRs for the rest of the year? Please? I would love to see Rossi on that yellow 2001 bike again, but now with his modern elbow-down style, lighting up the rear out of the corners I can't decide what Pedrosa or Lorenzo would think of riding a 2-stroke, but Marqeuz vs Rossi on NSRs would certainly be interesting....

MotoGP » Rossi: Honda has found something

Marquez is obviously better than Rossi and Lorenzo right now, but the Yamaha guys are right. The Honda is much more stable on the brakes - up until this year Yamaha demanded its' riders adopt a braking style with wheels in line on.entry to.corners, but this year they have allowed Pol to try the Marquez style. Just look how well that works - Pol's crash at Mugello in practise among many show how unsuited the Yamaha is to a sideways on one wheel corner entry. In terms of fuel saving Honda is also on top - the RCV cuts off cylinders to burn fuel more efficiently when not flat-out. The Yamaha doesn't do that.

MotoGP » ‘Intruder’ Dovizioso accepts hard passes

Seems unfair to me that open rules give teams softer tyres and takes the hard tyres away - qualifying well is no advantage if you aren't allowed to use tyres that will last the race! I think Dovi could have finished not far off the Yamahas if he had a hard rear . He has impressed me this year a lot more than he ever did on the Honda - such a shame you don't get two chances (ignoring melandris possible return) in MotoGP - I think he could challenge all but MM if he got that bike again.
