Re: 2019 Motogp Season

I'm not sold on Miller. He's fast, but is prone to making mistakes and as a personality, well, he lives up to his nickname. Would this fit into the culture of Ducati? Possibly, but it is another consideration. Regarding the fastest rider for the Ducatis at the moment, I don't feel Petrucci or Miller...

Re: 2019 Motogp Season

More exciting racing? I thought Sunday's GP race was extremely exciting. As an aside, it baffles me how many people find any kind of racing boring if there isn't a colossal duel for the lead going down to the last lap, as if those racing for the podium or those fighting for the midfeld spots are try...

Results from Free Practice 2 this morning are attached. Again, Quartararo putting in a great performance. Lorenzo looks worlds better and has achieved some setup solutions. Vinales showing his outright speed. If he can get a good start, he's one to watch. Results: 1. ^3 Maverick Viñales ESP Monster ...

Re: 2020 Dutch Grand Prix?

I believe you, but I find that hard to believe that Charlie would say that. The debate on MotoGP ever going to Mexico City is currently in a flux due to how unsafe the track would be in its current state for motorcycles. That straight they have---Jesus GP bikes might hit 230mph on it. To say nothing...

Re: 2020 Dutch Grand Prix?

Hopefully then they will leave all of the gravel traps in place. Wasn't MotoGP one of the primary reasons why they started replacing gravel traps with tarmac run-offs? If Zandvoort punishes mistakes hard then that might make for good viewing Actually its the opposite. MotoGP riders and safety is be...

Re: Interlagos to be dropped from 2020 calendar

I now hear this year could be the last for Barcelona, and maybe Hockenheim, as Vietnam and Zandvoort are pencilled in for 2021. Personally I think the redesigned Zandvoort is great, and Vietnam must be better than Barcelona, which not only has no passing, but has had its fast-corner section 3 emasc...

Re: Interlagos to be dropped from 2020 calendar

Sensational track, in the top three in my opinion, and you can make a case for it being the best track in F1. It provides everything, and is very unique.

This is a mistake; the issues it has could be solved for far less money than building a new track.

Sad, sad day.

Re: The Official Football Thread

Some of the most entertaining football I've ever seen in the last 24 hours. Simply stunning win by Tottenham on aggregate today. I'd have never guessed they could have come back after being down by 2 goals, then scoring three straight.

Rossi and Vinales are both under contract through 2020, I doubt Yamaha drops either of them before then. It's great to see Quartararo so fast, he's doing a brilliant job, and I think his bike has less revs than the factory Yamahas---pretty sure I read that somewhere right before the season started. ...
