Re: Suzuka 8 hour

I think the 5 minute rule is not a good one
If it’s there to stop someone winning the race because they caused the red flag then just put that in the rules
Kawasaki deserved the win they were clearly the fastest just a shame it took so long to work out who won

Re: Marquez happy with Honda the way it is

It can be seen in the results only one man can consistently ride the Honda fast But that doesn’t mean no one else can it just means the right rider hasn’t been put on it yet Someone straight from moto2 Might be better as they have no other experience on a MotoGP bike Being a ex world champion and se...

Re: British Superbikes 2019

Already parted ways
Although on crash.net they suggest hector to replace
Shakey posted a picture of him signing a covered up contract the other day so looks like shakey to replace him
It is a shame but he has not looked comfortable in the team at all so maybe good for him to have a change

Re: WSBK 2019

Bautista has to go for wins now It’ll be interesting to see it rea settles for not winning now or risk pushing to beat Bautista In a interview on Eurosport Bautista hinted the crashes were due to not pushing so may revert to just going flat out But that was before the first race at Laguna I wonder i...

Re: WSBK 2019

Hopefully Bautista can get back to winning ways over the last 4 rounds and keep rea honest However the gap to third is massive so shows just how much better the top 2 are And rea says the only rounds he is concerned the ducati will be better is the last 2 I have no doubt rea will crash from at least...

Re: WSBK 2019

I can’t think what has gone wrong at ducati. From 61 points up to 61 points down From dominating 13 races on the trott to struggling to finish a race What have they changed Surely 250rpm can’t be that big a change OR has the spec of the tyres changed Just watching Bautista he doesn’t look as quick i...

Re: Silly Season

I’d love see see Marquez on either
To see if he is as good as he looks on the Honda and to see how competative ktm/aprilia would be with a top rider on board
Everyone thought the same when Rossi went to ducati but that didn’t turn out well

Re: KTM better or worse

The ktm does not look down on power against any bar the ducati The engine should be the easiest to sort out for them as they are allowed upgrades during the year Maybe they should instead let a few moto2 guys test it to see if there is a young rider capable of adapting to it Lecuona is doing a great...

Re: British Superbikes 2019

Sometimes rides need a step backward to regain the winning feeling and then move forward again Hopefully the same will happen to Kent when he returns at snetterton. Although it’s a old bike and a private entry I think it will still be capable of podiums Look how refreshed Bautista looks in wsbk Both...

Having listened to hodgson interview zarco on the grid, zarco looked a beaten man Then crashing out in the race He needs a confidence boost, or a move ( although there aren’t any in MotoGP) maybe to the new Honda for next year in wsbk. Also heard rumours over the weekend of ducati wanting Lorenzo ba...

Re: 2019 R9 7th Jul Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland Sachsenr

If you believe Neil hodgson. Ktm have a brand new frame ( significantly better) for after the break
Maybe binder has a early version which is why he has improved
I just hope it goes to all the teams so they can show what they can do in time for contracts for next year

After reading a comment about a aggressive engine causing some issues.

Re: 2019 R8 30 June Motul TT Assen

One thing to remember with Rossi is that he still the top yamaha in the championship even after the dnf’s He will change it around but will he be a constant winner. No, unless Marquez has a injury then you never know Zarco is a good rider and rode well on the yam but clearly not happy at ktm and may...

Re: 2018

Binder definitely looked fast on the straights as well as quick in the corners
Martin looked good to catch the leaders until his fall
Shame for lowes but despite not being happy it was a racing incident.
Shame for Marquez it was shaping up to be a good race to the finish

Re: 2019 R8 30 June Motul TT Assen

Iannone only looks fast when following a top rider
Very disappointing qualifying for him again but at least managed to not be last (just)
Looking forward to a good race. If mav gets a good start he will run away with it
But I think a Honda will be up there in the end
