British MotoGP: Stoner dominates wet race

Repsol Honda rider Casey Stoner has taken the lead in the MotoGP championship with a dominant victory at a rain soaked Silverstone circuit. Current champion Jorge Lorenzo got the holeshot into the first corner, but Stoner and team-mate Andrea Dovizioso passed him before the end of the first lap. Stoner passed Dovizioso at the first corner on lap two and from...

M1 was second before Rossi in 2002...

Max Biaggi on the first year on the M1 in 2002 came in 2nd place in the championship behind Rossi on the Honda as detailed in the Faster video. Wow that's far down the championship. :) Go see the stats as well on the MotoGP web site. Now tell me again how poor the M1 was when it beat every other bike, including Hondas in the championship except for Rossi's Honda. If the M1 was really that horrible then I'd consider Max Biaggi amazing to come in 2nd place on it.

lmao!

You lot are like school boys in a playground. He's better, no he's better, mines bigger, his is better! lol! Fact is, it doesn't matter what your name is, or how good you are, if you are on a slow bike or car, you can't win, end of story. Who knows what has been done to the bike since Casey left and who cares.

Who saw the F1 race this weekend? They are supposed to be the best drivers in the world, and yet they spent nearly the whole race behind the safety car becuase it was raining, those guys at silverstone went out in the same weather, on motorcycles and raced to the max, does it really matter at the end of the day what is what? They entertain us, and that's all that matters.

Dull, boring, predictable just 3 words to describe this years motoGP.  As a previous post says, MotoGP the new F1.

There needs to be another 10 bikes on the grid before this becomes remotely entertaining.

Yawn.

WTF are you talking about?? That's the most pointless thing i've read here ever!! If it's all about entertainment then why make it a race.... perhaps they should all dismount at the half-way point and do synchronised stoppies, wheelies and burnouts and perhaps all the riders should then do some nice line dancing... or some kind of cabaret act before carrying on the pointless lap-after-lap drudgery.. it's only gonna end in someone getting upset cos they got beat... stuff it boys.... Let's dance and entertain this crowd!!!

Muppet!!!   ;)

The Yamaha became better in Rossi's first seizon there because of 2 things, the crossplane crancshaft and the cranckshaft rottating backwards. Who' s ideas they were? It's either JB,Valentino or mr Furusawa the supposedly genius Yamaha racing boss. Just geussing maybe all 3 had a bit to do with it? The handling of the Yamaha was always good but now they also had traction. Isn't one of Valentino's mechanics on Twitter? If he was also there at Yamaha in that time, matbe someone should ask him who was the real mastermind.

Yeah Carlos.

One of Rossi's mechanics are on Twitter Alex Briggs the whole crew what he had during his time at Honda went with him over to Yamaha in 2004 but I think the real mastermind in the M1 becoming a force was JB and Rossi developing the bike into a winner.

The "Fans"

Unfortunately, the fans where I was sitting booed Casey, cheered when Lorenzo fell off, failed acknowledge a great ride by Nicky Hayden and then stood and cheered for Rossi after a half hearted performance. The attitude towards Stoner was bad enough, but to cheer when a rider falls is too much.
