Or do you think that they see Vinales as a legitimate contender for the title and that is why they call him, and not everyone in the field, a contender. Or are they just too dumb to understand English and must bow to the superior skills of the MotoGP Forum Webster/Oxford gods?

It's rigged for Rossi, yet Rossi is the new old, or is that old new, or maybe just old old Pedrosa. No matter how much rigging, he is ever the bridesmaid, never the bride. Gets cold feet. It took a blue flag controversy just to gift him a win. Or was it a case of Petrucci being a non championship contender meant he had no right to race and pass Rossi? What round does that rule come into affect again?

Never mind. Dovi, if he is as smart as they say he is, might have paid attention to how Marquez won the championship last year. With Michelin tires it's not about racking up wins with blinding speed, more taking the odd opportunistic win then minimising those costly Mishitelin front mistakes. Plus I reckon whatever they are doing at Ducati trying to get Lorenzo competitive, as opposed to having Ianone as a Crashmore Cal style team mate, is likely going to help Dovi contend even more so.

I've admired him for years, the smoothness, the tick-tock-metronomic laps, the focus. And now he's regularly 1 or 2 or MORE seconds off the pace... I don't get it - is it really that he's not the rider I thought he was?
No he's a fantastic rider, it's just that there's more to racing than being a talented rider or having a good bike, maybe it's the team who are having the problem setting up his bike for him, maybe he can't get the right feel with the Michelins in order to have the confidence to push, maybe he's got something going on in his life outside of the sport which is causing a distraction.
So many variables can cause the difference between winning and finishing last, I've seen it myself, I've seen riders on Pirellis struggling, next week they throw a pair of Dunlops on and bang they're challenging for the win(obviously GP riders don't have that luxury).

You need to quit it, povol doesn't like all this overt sexuality going on around here. I'm afraid he might start calling for public stonings in the name of freedumb.

It's really simple Dub.

VR suggested it. Dorna thought it was as fantastic as an idea as any he has offered and felt it was worth doing.

If Casey Stoner had still been racing and suggested it, they would have not only declined to move it forward, but they would also have banned pit boards.

The only two I have heard are against it are Bradley and Smut-hoe. So I don't see any reason to be against it.
