Johann Zarco gives a lesson in managing a championship


The Doctor had his passing lights on


HRC's new swingarm for the RC213V, with a fraction more flex. The swingarm linkage, further forward, is a thing of beauty


Cal Crutchlow could have started the race with new gloves, but new gloves mean tight fingers means arm pump


Tito Rabat, back to winning ways


A bad way to end a race: a dislocated ankle for Cal Crutchlow


Every team's worst nightmare: Italtrans riders Mika Kallio and Franco Morbidelli crashed out at Mugello simultaneously

A glorious setting for racing


It's tough at the top. As Marc Marquez is finding out


Desmo Dovi's Ducati Dreams


Aleix Espargaro has torn the ligament between his thumb and finger. Exactly the point you support your weight on under braking


The position and shape of all those welds serve a purpose. What that purpose is, Ducati will never tell you


Bradley Smith is lifting his Mugello MotoGP curse


Claudio Domenicali, Ducati's boss of bosses


Mugello swoops


Viñales, from above


Ducati test rider Michele Pirro is also reaping the rewards of all the hard work he has put in on the GP15

Dani Pedrosa. He's back


The vent on the left hand side of the Ducati leads under this panel to back of the bike


Pole sitter. And deservedly so

Home is where the heart is


You spin me right round, baby, right round


Body position 101: Old school (Michele Pirro) vs new MotoGP (Marc Marquez)


Another example: Pol Espargaro hanging way off the bike


Ready?


New Honda RC213V swingarm (rear) vs old swingarm (front)

 
Maniac


Redding plays peekaboo


Sleight of hand: Pedrosa's mechanics rush to swap a tire from one bike to the other


There hangs a tail


Eugene Laverty has a quick go on the PS3 before exiting pit lane


Speaking of body position...


Dovizioso gets it sideways


The little deflectors which make Ducati's winglets legal


Aleix Espargaro. The bravest man on the grid today. He's going to try to race, despite the pain

Up close and personal with the factory Yamaha M1 - Slipper clutch, brake cylinder, datalogging junction box


Fast and furious. The old man still has it


If only the MotoGP paddock was as open as AMA Superbike... 


The demise of the Drive sponsorship means Nicky Hayden can add a more personal touch to his bike


A competitive Ducati means Andrea Dovizioso is a consistent threat


Rookies of the year so far: Suzuki and Maverick Viñales


This is what determination looks like


Jack Miller has been quietly impressive on his debut in MotoGP


Marco Melandri: Going Gaga


Things didn't work out for Cal Crutchlow in the race


MotoAmerica made a modest but hopeful start to the series. Josh Hayes is still the man to beat


Eugene Laverty is learning to change his style from a Superbike to MotoGP


You can feel the optimism in the Ducati garage now

 
We're putting the band back together ...


When a Bridgestone front tire deflects that much, you're braking pretty damn hard

Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink


Ducati's mysterious winglets had a small chunk ground out of them at Austin


Ecstar Rockstar


Everybody's least favorite spectator watches Cal Crutchlow go by


Diehard fans? Diehardest fans!


200 races. That's a long time in Grand Prix


Making the rain go away


The rain tires stood up pretty well to the beating they get at Austin


It was wet on Friday. Properly wet


So wet that some bikes had problems with screens fogging. Yamaha drilled holes in the bottom of their screens to try to clear them


Bradley Smith had probably his best weekend in MotoGP at CotA


One roasted Aprilia fairing. Those exhausts get hot


The exhaust ports on the Honda exit to the rear, so Honda seeks exhaust length by making the pipes snake


Look out world, here comes #04


Did I mention it was wet?

The night rider


Your fuel tank probably does not look like that. The 0.1 is room to expand


Suzuki's exhaust has got a lot shorter since last year. Usually a sign of a factory chasing power


The GP15 from behind. Ducati have totally changed the routing on the rear exhaust


Perhaps the least comfortable position in which to conduct a rider interview...


All that glitters is not Ohlins


Shorter, blunter, compacter. The GP15 in a nutshell


The Suzuki GSX-RR is, if anything, even smaller


Down the rabbit hole. This pipe keeps getting shorter


#93


When Irish eyes are smiling. Which is not minutes before a race, thinks Eugene Laverty


The similarities between the GP15 and the RC213V are striking. The differences too, such as Honda's pursuit of exhaust length for tuning


The 41


Bewinged Iannone

We thought it was a steely, thousand-yard stare. But it was Pedrosa, steeling himself for the pain he knew was to come


An old man prepares


Moto3 maniacs must maintain massive momentum


Jorge Lorenzo started well, but his helmet would let him down at the end of the race


Marc Marquez, on the other hand, had a disastrous start, messing up his braking and running wide


Unluckiest man of the day. Johann Zarco controlled the Moto2 race right up until a gear lever bolt let him down


The old man didn't get a great start, but started cutting through the field like a razor


A cool head could have ensured victory for Sam Lowes. Shame he didn't bring one


After two races without a podium, the hopes of Spain rested on Jorge Lorenzo


But there were three Italians who were sick of hearing the Spanish national anthem


Valentino Rossi and the Ducatis of Dovizioso and Iannone on the podium? Italy was closed on Monday.


The old man showed that age is truly irrelevant


Even at Qatar, with an attendance of 8,000, a Rossi victory is enough to fill pit lane with fans


This could have been lap 1 or lap 15: the Moto3 race was a barnstormer from start to finish


Not many people had Jonas Folger to win Moto2. But a mixture of luck and talent got him his first win


Best helmet on the grid: Danilo Petrucci


Ducati gives you wings. Where have I heard that before?


Honda gave it both barrels in Moto3


Just because...

Pol Espargaró beat brother Aleix last year. That may not be so easy in 2015


Can this bike...


... stop this man? So far it has been advantage Márquez


The fuel tank under the seat of the GP15. Lower and a little further forward than the GP14


Fuel in the same place on the Suzuki, but their electronics are in the tail


The white knight under the lights


The Maniac and his posse roll into the desert


Yonny Hernandez gets last minute instructions before he leaves the pits


Jorge Lorenzo assumes the position


The tail of Honda's Moto3 machine, without the massive silencers at the rear


The trouble with being a tall rider. Scott Redding has a large tank spacer to keep him from sliding forward


To allow him to get his position right on the bike


Still looking ahead


Bradley Smith had a tire that didn't work for him on Friday


The Aprilia RS-GP is beautiful in its simplicity. Now it just needs to be fast.


The engineering on the RC213V-RS is just as beautiful as on the RC213V


The dark horse of 2015. You get the feeling Dani Pedrosa is faster than he is letting on.


The Ducati winglets are back. Will they last?

Suzuki came back to MotoGP, and they came prepared


The world's most expensive snowglobe: the onboard gyroscopic rotating camera


All's fair in love and motorcycle racing. Especially espionage


Where his rivals are


Aspar, sponsored by Aspar. The loss of Drive as sponsor has at least improved the look of the bike


By the end of 2015, all of the Moto2 riders will be clamouring for a Speed Up


A man reborn. 10kg lighter, and more motivated than ever, Danilo Petrucci is proving his mettle at Pramac


Loris Baz, or what a normal-sized European looks like on a MotoGP machine


Still hungry, after all these years


There is a lot of work ahead for Aprilia


Fabio Quartararo: get his signature soon, it will be worth a lot of money very soon


Pipe in a pipe. Clearly Ducati are under the minimum weight with the GP15, as they can afford aesthetic flourishes to the exhaust


The champ. Nice to see Tito Rabat rocking the #1 plate


Third bike in three years. So far, so good


KTM want the Moto3 title back. Miguel Oliveira could be the man to do it


Let there be light. And let there be motorcycle racing too, while you're at it.


Is that what chatter looks like?


Yonny Hernandez, getting the bike turned

The WSBK season opener produced some epic battles. Haslam, Rea and Davies gave the fans their money's worth


Lorenzo Zanetti's switch to MV Agusta saw him podium at the first attempt


Michael van der Mark. Made his mark on World Superbikes alright


Chaz prepares


Larry Pegram, the old man of World Superbikes


Alex Lowes: fast in testing, fast in practice, but suffered problems on race day


The MV may have dominated WSS, but it still has some way to go in WSBK


Legend


Randy De Puniet's debut in World Superbikes left him battered and bruised


Justice at last for Leon Haslam


Future champion? He certainly got off to a good start


Give 'em what they want


Jules Cluzel is leading a Moto2 charge in World Supersport


Not bad for a new boy. Pere Riba must have been happy with the way things went for his rider
