Re: Stoner to return to Ducati as a test rider

I think it may be perfect timing to some degree. The new tyres, the "old" software, surely a guy with such amazing throttle control who used to handle a dog that folded the front on a whim would relish such conditions.

The 1000fps cameramen will be salivating I am sure.

Re: MotoGP 2015, Sepang

Well Marquez has got away with it, I think the most deplorable part of the whole debacle now that Rossi's appeals have been rejected is that Marc has still gone unpunished-yet again. I personally hope he continues on his path of despicable behavior (no doubt he will with his sordid history) and hop...

@ Grahluk .. some good points there. I wasnt referring to any race in particular. I was genuinely interested in the answer. To me Valencia 2013 was an act of desperation to stave off a title loss. It ultimately failed. There was no real omnipotence there at all. He was faster but was trying to contr...

Re: My out of the box idea to fix the 2015 season

I say Honda & Yamaha wildcard Asimo & roboRossi respectively. They smash pole record by 5 seconds and lap the field 3 times in the race.

Re: MotoGP 2015, Valencia

Pirro will be riding a Ducati GP15 as a wild card in Valencia. On that status of the appeals, it looks like Lorenzo was providing evidence to the CAS that a back of the grid was a normal penalty, and shouldn't be delayed. Even so, I'm having a hard time understanding how the CAS could agree hear th...

Re: Shut down the internet...

How would a ride-through or black flag penalty avoid being brought before the CAS? Technically, any decision can be taken to CAS if I am not mistaken. I used the ride thru or black flag as an example because they occur during the event as oppose to penalties that have an effect after the fact (in R...

Just as aside. MM baulking VR and MM helping JL win the title are two separate and not mutually exclusive concepts. Yes he may be getting up rossi's nose but that does not imply that it is to the benefit of JL. It could be just an unintended consequence for all we know. When there are only 2 people...
