I completely agree these guys are all aliens.
For my viewing pleasure I would prefer if they finish with the "bin it or win it" riding in their Moto3 years.

Yes they get paid to ride on the limit, but yesterday it just felt like reckless riding with little regard for running off.

Anyway, just a philosophical chat about the sport.

Agreed Bud500, running off should cost you some time at least. Almost unfair that his shortcut went with no "penalty", simply rejoined in his old position and carried on his merry way... You win some and lose the rest..

So What made the Suzuki that fast this weekend ?
Set up spot on ? Engine development ? or did they fluke it with all the parameters in the sweet spot ?    its not as if the opposition riders are kak and the teams are clueless  :peepwall:

I am very happy for Suzuki. They make very fast road bikes and I cannot understand why they do not perform on the track?

What a great race it was.
Good for VR, the rivalry between him and MM makes for a good show.

I'm also glad there are now some newcomers in the top ranks.
Cant wait to see how the ktms are going to do. Testing times so far are well on par, from what I've heard.

For some reason the Suzis work better in the cold, maybe something to do with the way they get the tires warmed up and keeping it at the right temperature??

By the way, how cool is that 360 Gyrocam.  :thumleft:
Agree, it's great! They started using them on F1 cars too a while ago, but I see they don't often actually use that footage. Well, not for TV coverage anyway. I understand that at races one can view different camera angles, etc with a small TV-like device, dunno if the same is done with MotoGP.

But anyway, cool nonetheless.

Kamanya can elaborate, but if you subscribe to the MotoGP TV packages then you can choose which cameras you would like to view.

I've never been into road bikes and the few occasions when I have had the chance, I've had no idea how go quick on them. I know the theory, but just haven't ever had enough time on them to learn the skills. I'm happy to stick to dirt.

Neil Hodgson is someone who does know and teaches others how. He's been a world champion and recently got to ride Iannone’s  GP winning bike and failed.

Really interesting.

Has your Videopass also been erratic the last 2 weeks? Mine keeps stuttering, to the point where I streamed Sunday's race from another channel.

Has anyone seen the post race press conference where Lorenzo seems very unhappy with the hard pass on him made by Rossi. I thought Dani's pass on Rossi was harder, but anyway. It goes something like this, the actual is quite entertaining.

Lorenzo was also asked for his opinion on the pass and the conversation between the pair unfolded as follows:

Lorenzo: “Well if you ask this question maybe it is because the move is aggressive because if not, then you don't ask this question. You can have different opinions: my opinion was that the overtaking was maybe too aggressive; he didn't need to make this overtaking, but you know this is his style. Other riders overtake more clean… [Rossi laughs].

Lorenzo: “It is true – you don't know?”

Rossi: “No, no, no. Try to look another time at the overtake on the television.”

Lorenzo: “If I don't pull up straight the bike, we crash – I crash. Maybe you don't crash, but I crash for sure.”

Rossi: “This is not true. I don't know what I have to say – Marquez overtake ten times like this at Silverstone. What you say like this is not true.”

Lorenzo: “It is my opinion, my opinion.”

Rossi: “Also you overtake always aggressive, also to me.”

Lorenzo: “When? This is my opinion, also Race Direction will have another opinion. For me, if I don't pull up the bike straight I crash. Anyway he didn't need to do this overtaking, he was better than me today and he would pass me sooner or later, but he didn't need to be so aggressive on me. He will have another opinion.”

Rossi: “Anyway, I do not agree.”
