Iannone's Kamikaze Thread



I had high hopes for him at the start of the season, but he has become extremely reckless in the last 6 months (ever since he pulled off that pass at PI). So who else is he going to take out this season?

I don't think he has to worry about #35.

I bet 46 is pretty safe and not on the hit list.

Here's a wild scenario.

Imagine if the title comes down to Valencia again, only this year it's MM and VR battling. I recall fans last year calling for Iannone to torpedo Lorenzo at Valencia. Imagine if that scenario played out this year, only he torpedoes VR?

Iannone came very close to taking out VR at Argentina this year. His pass was so poor it pushed VR wide and Iannone lost time himself. Rossi called him out on it after the race and said Iannone passed him in a wrong way and he only hoped Iannone would also cause Dovi to lose time when he passed him. Turned out that Iannone would cost Dovi a lot more than time when he caught him. But even VR isn't safe from an Iannone torpedo, nobody is because Iannone isn't even in control of his bike.


A wild scenario:

Has there been any modification to the Ducati that Stoner recommended, but Iannone is having trouble with?

I prefaced it with "wild scenario", but hey... Marquez claimed Stoner took the RCV in the wrong direction.

I don't know that Stoner is doing much at all with Ducati; all talk of him has died down since the Lorenzo signing.

It looks to me that him being involved was with the motive of showing the potential of the bike and seeing whether the current riders were realising it, which Gigi apparently thought they weren't, hence the involvement in the official test, and probably also to try to entice him to return. They have Lorenzo now, who has a very different riding style, and will be going in his direction, and Gigi has at least worked with him before at Aprilia in the 250s I believe, and is working with a conventional chassis which is where his expertise lies rather than attempting to make a bike with a carbon fibre chassis integrated with the engine into a Yamaha as Ducati were last time they attracted a world championship winning Yamaha rider. I still wonder whether the engine configuration is a problem.

Iannone's torpedoes this year have all seemed to be errors of judgement. Stoner may have contributed to him feeling more pressured, but I doubt he can be blamed for changing the bike to his detriment. The likelihood is that crazy Joe has become crazy Joe again.

No he didn't, his exact words were 'he identified the problem but he can't develop the bike.' As in he rode the bike once saw the problem was the same as I had been saying but he rides the bike once a year and that isn't enough seat time to develop the bike. Pretty fucking simple unless you're a Rossi fan who wants to discredit Stoner.

Some people and the media just want to cause a problem where there isn't any.

During yesterday’s Nolan press conference, Stoner admitted he knew what the problem was, but wouldn’t expand further on what the issue was. When asked what he thought the problem was, Marquez responded by saying: “With regard to the evolution of the bike, it’s been made for the Japanese tester. When Stoner tested the bike, he identified the problem, but it’s clear after not riding a MotoGP bike for a year, you can’t develop anything.”

Now that could just be seen as a slight dig at the former World Champion by Marquez, or it could simply be an awkward way of working what he was trying to say. Stoner in the same interview yesterday said that he believed Marquez was lucky to win the title in 2013, and said Lorenzo and Pedrosa were better riders than he is, so if Marc was feeling a little frustrated at the Aussie’s comments, it would be understandable.

MM was unhappy with the 2015 RCV that showed up at post-season test and said that Stoner doesn't ride enough to develop anything.
