Default Re: The 2013 Moto GP Season

I would have loved to seen Stoner back on a Duc again and ride it like he did when he won his 1st championship. Ducs need some one like him, absolutely fearless and willing to manhandle that bike. And Andre is probably not it, we'll see. Without the Ducs in the picture, it makes the GP kinda dull for me, predictably. Hayden got some karma, to keep getting a ride on the Ducs. Can't remember when he did something with that bike last.

Andrea Divisioso is riding the Duc like it should. Lets hope they develop the bike around him and make some progress.

I agree wholeheartedly. He was way more competetive towards the front than Rossi ever was on it. Not to mention qualifying.

Different riders react differently to different bikes. Its chemistry.

Dovi is very very good, any bike. And I always got the feeling that he never really ever pushes Rossi for the lead once Rossi takes him. Italian brotherhood probably!

Default Austin ; US

Its very hard to even think as to who would win & podium along side. A new track with less grip would make for a very interesting race.

If J Lo & DP can't put a gap in these circumstances & would run with the pack, it would make for a helluva race.

A Honda & a Yamaha would podium. In almost all certainty, J Lo & Dani may podium.

What happened with Lorenzo coming in with under 2 minutes on the clock?

Vale is in his usual region, with the promise of some tremendous maneuvers. Can mark absorb the pole pressure?

I'm hoping for a full Yamaha podium, but I'm sure Mark is going to spoil that party..

Kinda boring American Grand prix ,not much overtaking.

Marc Marquez seems to be the one to watch out for ,he is the youngest person to win a Moto GP.

As expected, it was a Honda dominance at Austin, but with lesser margin than expected. Marc Marquez was a treat to watch. He soaked up pressure from Pedrosa and rode a flawless race to become the youngest ever winner of Motogp. He can go on to become the youngest ever champion if we wins the championship in 2013 or 2014.

One critical aspect which could have played in favour of Marquez is the tyre choice. He was on hard compound and Pedrosa on medium. If not for this, Pedrosa could have given even tougher fight.

The pace of Yamahas was surprisingly good. Cal and Lorenzo were the fastest riders towards the end of the race. Hope the next race will be closer.

Tomorrow we have the race at Jerez, Spain. As of now, Jorge tops the timing sheets in almost all practice sessions.

I think either of the Yamahas will win this & Marc will podium as well.

Was watching the qualifying - so many crashes. Crutchlow, Rossi, Pedrosa, Colin Edwards.

Tomorrow will be very interesting.

Marquez with his youthful happiness is such a nice difference from the other riders - not grumpy, not complaining, no planned theatrics; everything is new to him, and he is doing well and exceeding everyone's expectations.

This is good news for Yamaha fans after the Austin that which was skewed towards the Honda bikes.

Vale has been making noise about preserving (also read as using it optimally) tyres at Jerez.

With the crashes and Jorge making pole on a soft tyre, there's an exciting race in the making.

Yeah. I have a feeling this will be a race with very late results. Of course Lorenzo is just too clinical, may have opened up a huge lead by then.

# 26 - Believe quite a lot of us underestimated you. That was a fabulous win. Congratulations!

# 04 - In search of a Factory Ride, you went so desperate that now you are fighting it out with the CRT's. What next...?

# 35 - You got to wait a bit!

# 46 - I think I was partially right earlier.

# 93 - You made tons of new fans today. And there was no need to be apologetic. It was a racing incident. The door was left open, so that he could pull the move & declare himself a hero. tch, tch! Went horribly wrong.

# 99 - Why clutch your arm like # 15 did in '05? Why wag finger? Why acting like # 27?

This season gets very interesting.
