Hi Glenn

Heard that too, Apparently they were trying to cut down the deg on the rear tyres.
Great start to the season in all 3 classes

Good race, rumour was ducati had reigned them in a little to improve rideability.

Well done Sam Lowes, great start to the season, world champ would be nice

Saying that, his bikes paint job is horrible, burgundy!

Fantastic ride by MV, looks like FQ has caused a bit of competition. Really disappointed for Mir, another brilliant ride. Those Ducatiís in a straight line are untouchable. Same in WSB last year, gaining 3 - 5 bike lengths on the straight, x that by 20 laps!

Hi All

Well I'm never listening to FQ again, especially when he says the yamaha's can't get the power down!!!

Yea been following, don't believe rossi's bike is the full fat animal of the factory team but easier to ride and still quick enough to beat less gifted riders.

I think the only way he loses over the season for me Jon is if Yamaha give FQ a better and reliable bike, emphasis on reliable!

Where do the threats come from? Suzuki, Yamaha, Ducati, KTM. Mir is the world champ and what Suzuki have done with that bike is pretty amazing for me but you have to question, would they have been as competitive if rat boy was in the mix?

Said it before, the factory Honda is the benchmark in MotoGP for me, add quality rider, near on job done

Letís hope for a real mix up, competitive racing that goes to the final round, if we do it should be a great season for the fans

Hi All

It's all getting a bit silly with MM again.
He states he's out for the 2 Qatar races, but will race portamao.
Then the medics say racing portamao is tottaly dependant on a medical on April 12th
Then there's a story in one of the Spanish mags that his arm is still infected and he's got at least 2 more months out
And still Honda say nothing.
Like or loathe the guy moto gp is better off with him on track

To telling if being injured with such a long recovery will mess with his mind set.

He could probably sit half the season out and still win it, canít say Iím a fan but you have to admire him, reckless and dangerous at times but I guess thatís comes with a desire to beat the rest. No denying it though, a fantastic rider, one of the all time greats, no doubt

Thatís interesting Jon, not seen that, wonder if MV is the same, that could be just down to a pure aggressive style and how he puts the power down? Saying that with modern electronics, thought they would be able to sort it, If itís both riders, thatís a problem!

Still think the factory Honda is the benchmark myself in moto GP. Yamaha was poor last year, not to mention the engine and brake problems! MV 120mph dismount was amazing to see!

I think with FQ they have made a fantastic signing that could bring them success for many years if they can give him a decent bike, he is fast, some real competition for MM

Like you mention though, all about the tires and preservation for me, no point black lining them out of every corner

Canít rule out Suzuki for me, what they have done with that bike is amazing!

Hi Chris

Biggest news for me is FQ can't put it together, he's apparently burning up every rear tyre he's been given. If that's the case all the Yamaha riders will struggle getting the power down.
Same old unfixed problem?

You know he wonít be far off MM Jon, love him or loathe him, he is competitive and ruthless

FQ on the factory Yamaha, hope they give him a decent bike

JM on the factory Ducati, I like Miller too, deserves the ride for me!

And can Mir defend his tittle?

And thrown in KTM and the rest. all adds up to some decent racing for me, canít wait

Hi All

They are saying down here that a final decision will be made next week, but it's most likely rat boy will at least do some of the free practices and will most likely race
