V2Kiwi - "All WE NEED NOW... is six more SIMONCELLI,s"

On his current form if we'd had 6 more Simo's in the 2011 championship we'd have 30 extra crashes in the 7 races so far... 3 more riders with broken bones (assuming that it was a 50/50 incident) plus Cal & Colin & Dani... 18 extra DNF's... I can see what you watch MotoGP for... do you also hang around the entrance to A&E? If you get your kicks from watching qualifying great, 9 or 10 riders batting for pole, but, on current form, he ain't showing us much on race day... on the plus side he does have funny hair... what a character!

Forza Simoncelli!


Jorge as others have said, grow a set or switch ot F1 & see if you equal John Surtess, a proper racer!

Always makes me smile when a new boy comes along to upset the apple cart...

Valentino Rossi - 1st Season (in pretty much every class) crashed a lot & then won title in 2nd year...

Casey Stoner - 1st Season with Gresini, outpaced 'sterile' & 'boring' Pedrosa on HRC bike almost every race but crashed a lot, as he was pushing his inferior Honda to the limit...

Marco Simoncelli - now on a decent ride, with this year's Gresini bike a lot closer to the HRC Team, constantly shining & out performing Dovisioso & Pedrosa and becoming a real thorn in the side of both Stoner & Lorenzo; again, crashing a lot, as he finds pushes it to the limit...

This is RACING, every rider should be riding the bike like they stole it; not pussy footing around like prima donna footballers! Ditch your skirts, girls & RACE!!!

Man up George

If Lorenzo thinks it's bad now what is he going to be like next year with another 12 riders on the grid. watched the Senna documentary the other day and Lorenzo is coming across a lot like Alain Prost. Senna's response to what is essentially the same accusation Lorenzo has made was that if you are not battling to get through those half chance gaps why are you there?

And just  to pre-empt the smartarses Senna died on a simple corner with no-one else involved due to a mechanical failure on his car.

I like Simo he's a breath of fresh air, but he isn't going to last long at Honda if he doesn't start placing. In order to place he's gonna have to realise that the race isn't won on lap one. I hope he sorts it out because I think he can really take it to Stoner next year if he keeps a cool head. Lorenzo needs to put his head down and start finishing races near the top if wants to place this year. He's justified in being pissed off at Simo, but he needs to beat his arse on the track and stop whining in the press like a little biatch.

Devil's advocate.....

Just looked at the Stats for this year...

Randy De Puniet has only finished 2 races this year (Estoril and Silverstone), and finished 10th and 12th respectively. Now even though I've watched every race, I'm not sure how many DNF's are down to mechanical failure and how many are crashes but I suspect more are crashes? (We don't get to see the lower order very often do we?)

Perhaps the reason Lorenzo isn't calling for RDP to be banned also is because he's never had the misfortune to be caught up in one of his lunges to the apex??

I understand that some crashes are because the rider is pushing his inferior machinery to, and past it's limits. Afterall, as MattMorris says, why are they there if they don't want to battle for position??

I'll underline what most opinions are here: Man up Lorenzo and stop running scared. Smearing mud over one of your main rivals is not the way to win fans or championships!

Keep sticking it to them Simmo......only try and stay aboard eh??

Take a year off boys!!!

I cordially invite messrs Lorenzo and Pedrosa to take a year out of moto GP and come to BSB for a season. That will equip you both for the cut and thrust of the two wheel combat, that you are clearly not too comfortable with!!  

Then when competant, you can go back and turm Moto Gp back into the spectacle BSB is, and Moto GP once  was.
