Motegi MotoGP: Danny Kent ecstatic after maiden win

Danny Kent hailed his stunning maiden Grand Prix victory in Japan yesterday as ‘amazing’ after he triumphed at the end of a dramatic Moto3 clash. The British teenager went from fifth to first on the final lap after Luis Salom wiped out Jonas Folger with a reckless overtaking move at the first corner. That put the 18-year-old third and he then passed...

Go and argue with your new friends in the mirror

The point is about team orders and given Cortese's comments, applies to Danny Kent's race does it not.

Yeah, well that may well be the case - but it isn't about Stoner, Pedrosa, Ferrari's or Eddie Irvine (you even spelt his name wrong) is it?

Stop being such a bore and try to limit yourself to the topic subject.

Yah Bulto.

Brno wasn't the turning point and Stoner hasn't led Pedrosa in the standings since Assen.

There's no coincidence in this. Honda first brought a new frame that Stoner dismissed out of hand, followed by a new bike from which he only took the engine..keeping the original frame that had the big chatter problems. Dani embraced the upgrades and the rest is history..and Stoner was toast.

Like Casey, you may think the wins are more important but they are not. A championship has more value to both rider, team and factory. That's what they're there for.

Stoner crashing out of Germany while battling Dani for the precious win was as instrumental in his backward progress compared to his team mate as the stubborn, bone-headed decision to go off in a different direction with his bike.

Stoner cannot win the title and should respect that he is in a team and that Honda pay his wages.

Nakamoto should order him to tow the company line under threat of losing the bike at Phillip Island and using Rea again. Tell him he can take retirement early if he doesn't play the game.

PS. Benny, you BackCuntryBollock. Who made you up to monitor in charge of thread topic? You have zero credibility here fucko with your schizo meltdowns and multiple personalities so do us a favour..take your insecurity and need to be the centre of attention like a little schoolgirl off somewhere else and shut the fuck up.

I mentioned Brno as that is when Pedrosa began his run of wins (Indy excepted) He took the new bike after Mugello but Stoner still won in Laguna and there was nothing between them at Indy before Stoner crashed, so to say Stoner was toast after Pedrosa took the new frame isn't true. Pedrosa still gets chatter with the new bike.

If you're going to support team tactics, then Danny Kent shouldn't have made the pass on Cortese, he should have sat behind him and let Cortese run unchallenged to the flag for as many points as possible. He may have a decent lead but if got wiped out in practise at the next race and couldn't finish the season, the points lost at Motegi could cost him the title. What's more important to the team, Kent taking that win which means nothing in the overall scheme of things, or Cortese taking as many points as possible without interference from a team mate who isn't 'in it'.

Sorry..

..but the dynamic is completely different..Sandro is miles in front with 3 to go. He can afford to DNF twice and he'd still probably win it. Kent had never won a GP before.

Pedrosa and Honda are trying to claw it back and Casey should help them, if possible. What difference will it make to him if he wins one or two more? He's gone.

Don't agree

Look what happened to Pedrosa last year through no fault of his own when he was skittled out of 4 races by Simoncelli, then Lorenzo missing the last 3 races through a practise crash, Stoner this year.

If the same happened to Cortese and he didn't ride in the last 3 races the championship would be lost. So from the team tactic aspect what's more important, to ensure Cortese scores as many points as possible unhindered by his team mate in order to put the title safely beyond doubt or let them race and risk the type of thing that happened on Sunday. If Cortese had landed awkwardly or been hit by a following bike it could have put him out for the rest of the season.

I know what my stance is, but from a team tactic aspect, if your citing that Stoner should help Pedrosa, then the same applies here.

If Danny had followed team orders...

... Tonucci would have come through no matter what had happened & more than likely Cortese would still have tried to come back under him & crashed... with Danny so close in behind he may well have been caught up in the mele leaving Vinales to take 25 points instead of 20 & Danny without a win. Danny did him a big favour by taking 5 points off Cortese's nearest rival. Cortese, who only needed a podium, screwed up while in a podium position, then couldn't take responsibility for his own stupidity.

it would be really nice if people could stop talking about casey,pedrosa and Lorenzo its not really that relevant when a highly skilled BRITISH lad has just won a Grand prix!! All i ever read on here is stuff about Rossi or casey, do you not have anything more to talk about??? well done Danny you rode a brilliant race from start to finish, shame sandro had to act like a little bitch, its taken him a while to get to the top in GP's where its taken danny..er.. 1 season? lost a lot of respect for him now. but hey looking forward to watching Moto3 & Moto2 for the last 3 rounds.. recon dannys got another win on the cards...

Danny's performance was excellent, as has been said, but how many times do you say it?

The only reason other riders have been mentioned is as a team orders analogy - team orders is relevant to this topic as one of the riders involved brought it up.

I've every admiration for Cortese going for the win, he took the risk and it backfired on him, that's the chance you take, but he acted like a complete twat afterwards with his rant. Next race will he expect Danny to be told to keep clear of him and stay behind. He may as well ask for all the other riders to be given the same instruction too.

Once upon a time, they used to race for wins, not want them gifted

I hope Danny does the same again next race and shows Cortese the edge of the track if push comes to shove.

Cortese is a German twat. He can thank Salom for taking out Folger or he wouldn't even have been top 5.

Danny rode fantastically, kept it in his pants until the end and pulled of a great result.

Keep it up boy, and next time punch the Hun in the gob if he gets lippy.
