It's good to see this amount of action in motogp 2015 thread! For years, I thought that I was the odd one among hordes of F1 fans around me. Now I'm glad to go through the thread and know that Motogp has significant support in India too..

This weekend's race can be quite interesting.Last three races indicate that Lorenzo is the man to beat. He is in form and the track suits Yamaha ( except for the long straight). But the big factor could be weather.. rain is predicted on Friday and possibly on Sunday.

If ever there is a chink in Lorenzo's armour it is wet weather. Ever since that accident in Assen 2013, he hasn't been the same during wet weather riding. He admits that he is scared and memories of Assen come back whenever he is racing in rain.

If it rains, it is anyone's guess as to who could be the victor. My vote goes for Rossi, Marquez, Dovi in that order. In dry race, there is no catching Lorenzo if he get's a hole shot in to the first corner..

I root for Yamaha and wouldn't mind a Yam 1-2

It was already pouring in Barcelona last night. Like you said Lorenzo hasnt fully recovered psychologically since the Assen crash.But in Aragon last year he won in wet so I'm positive of a good result.If it rains, I think Rossi has the best chance.What will be interesting to see is if the ducati GP15 is as good as it predecessor in the wet.

Has anyone bought the motogp video subscription from their website? I feel it's way too expensive and Dorna is clearly missing out on an opportunity here to target F1 viewers looking for some real racing since I dont know when.

Hi GTO, as much as I respect forum rules there was no need to selectively shift a few posts to the other thread. The motogp 2015 thread was quite active and had kindled every single member's motogp spirit in them.What else do we need? Do you want a forum where everyone patronized each other and shared little knowledge? I understand you want to keep the forums clean and sorted but all the posts in this thread had a follow up to a continuing discussion regarding all the riders of motogp (containing some amazing statistics) not only whether who is greatest or not. By shifting posts all the data,personal observations and views are scattered and the thread doesn't make sense anymore due to missing posts. I request you to rethink about this and let the forums be for it is that way we enjoy it. I've been a part of many worldwide and supremely active and genuinely helpful forums.Nowhere have I seen such hegemony.My suggestion, be a little flexible. Else the forum becomes very uninspiring to even post anything sensible.The 2015 motogp discussion is incomplete without reference to the earlier seasons performances. There is a way how we analyze rider/team progression based on recent years performances not only 2015. If you watch the sport keenly you will understand.

PS: there are many dead threads still active on the forum, you might want to pay attention to them first.

A suggestion to the moderators of the Teambhp website. I often see the home page of the website representing hot threads regarding the arrivals of new cars in the market,travelogues,technical stuff and even threads regarding car wash but never once have I seen one regarding Motogp racing.

As Teambhp is run by true motorsport enthusiasts,it is in a way their duty to promote two wheeler racing such as Motogp in order to help create awareness of the sport and support our Indian bike racing talent who are full of it and waiting to get recognized. There might be threads already existing but a little promotion and advertising would certainly help our fellow country riders.

Alex Espargaro takes pole. Its a Suzuki 1-2. Lorenzo completes the front row.
First it was Ducati, now Suzuki. Hope this one lap pace converts into something substantial in race. Exciting!

My... my... my...

Suddenly Suzukis are all over the GP paddock!

Aleix was consistently lapping low 1.42s, and guess what... they were on "medium" tires, matching Lorenzo's pace. Lorenzo suggested this would be the race pace most likely...

If this were any true, I would hope for a podium finish for at least one of the Suzukis. That speed in the corners should definitely help them.

BTW,am I the only one finding Suzukis to be the best looking bikes in the current line up?

Happened to catch the Moto-GP qualifying session & it was really exciting to see the bikes being ridden around the Catalunya circuit, especially the slow-mo shots of the riders cornering was just awesome.
What's the MotoGP lap record now at the circuit, 01:40:546 ?
Are the bikes driven with full race fuel on board during qualifying ?
Asking because, in comparison, Rosberg's pole position time ( F1 ) this year on the Catalunya circuit was 01:24:681 - that's a 16-second difference !
The all-time lap record belongs to Kimi though, who has the fastest time around this circuit at 01:21:670 - that's an incredible 20-seconds difference between F1 & MotoGP - never thought the difference would be this large...

Proof that Horsepower is not everything. The sweetest handling Bikes have rounded out the front row. If the Zuks are able to maintain their race pace on their hard tyres(medium for the rest), we may have surprise winners up tomorrow.

If it rains, then...

The F1 car is much faster than a motogp bike in all the circuits. IN some circuits it could be as big as half a minute per lap! E.g., The F1 record is 1:34.2 and the Moto GP record is 1:59.7 in Sepang.
