The Moto GP mega thread

Recommended Posts

turning out to be a good season.

Rossi coming back to where he once was.

 

The Argentine GP was gripping .. the master overhauling the young talent. Marquez unfortunately got too desperate in the end

 

Topped off by Cal's last minute measure to get a podium

The first two races of the season were epic. Ducati are in the mix, so are Yamaha and if Honda have any sense they'd be thinking about Cal for the proper factory team.

Cal is a good rider, but has to be "on a good one" to perform. Too many offs (one again at le mans) to make him consistent and a worthwhile bet for any major factory sponsor.

 

Lorenzo was again the master, Brad smith continuing to improve and will by the end of this season be the No. 1 Brit.

Another good one in Japan.

 

Pleased for Pedrosa winning. Rossi played it well - took no risks but kept it going. Lorenzo misjudged it - pushed too hard early doors and in the end his tyres were shot, so lost more points to rossi

Bad day for Rossi today,he only qualified in seventh, so on the third row. Lorenzo is on the front row in third, Marquez on pole.

 

Philip Island should be another cracking race.

I hope Rossi can hang on and win the title.

 

He really will be the GOAT.

Best this season. Pity Rossi's bike was lacking that bit on a fast track. Lovely circuit though.

Beautiful circuit. Did everyone see that move where Rossi overtook Marquez in a corner, only for Iannone to overtake them both in the same moment? Strewth, was that good or what?

Dani Pedrosa on pole in Malaysia! Where did that come from?

Marquez second, Rossi third, Lorenzo fourth.

Malaysia was interesting.

 

Pedrosi did well - he knew they (Rossi and Lorenzo) had a battle on and gambled that if he cleared off and didn't interfere, they'd let him go. And so it happened.

 

At the time of the rossi/Marquez incident, I followed the commentators' lead in thinking Rossi was out of order, but on reflection I'm not sure. Marquez should have let the Yamaha boys duel instead of interfering. He should have either cleared off a la Pedrosa or hung back and hopefully profiteer from their mistakes. Instead he riled Rossi and interfered with the job he was tasked with. In the end Rossi snapped. Bit like the old hand clipping the cheeky apprentice round the ear.

 

Unless Rossi does the ride of his life, looks like a Lorenzo championship.

 

Likely british win in Moto3 with Kent.
