Andrea Iannone doubts Marc Marquez rivalry in 2013

Italian Andrea Iannone doubts he will be able to renew his rivalry with fellow MotoGP rookie Marc Marquez in the 2013 world championship. Iannone and Marquez had some memorable battles in the Moto2 class in 2011 and 2012, but both are preparing for very different challenges in their first MotoGP season. Iannone is part of Ducati’s bid to bounce back from a...

Come now Bulto..

Allow wosi to respond, free of indignation and on the eve of our new season.

All riders want an easy team mate. Lorenzo wanted to keep Spies.

The wall was initiated by the same team running different tyre brands in 2008. After the first season, when everybody had Bridgestone, it was agreed the wall had helped respective crews concentrate on their own job improving efficiency. It also allowed further space for advertisng products from sponsors, so it stayed. Yamaha has always had an open data sharing policy under the control tyre.

Rossi is taking on Lorenzo with the odds equal. He's not running away from anyone. It's a brave move.

Rossi rode a 500 and won the title in his second season after coming second in his first. A 500 is a 500 sunshine and the so called "toys" you refer to, were light years away from the fly-by-wire bikes of today that have more computing power than the spaceship that took man to the moon.

Try and embrace the new season my old cock sparrow..and put your intense dislike of all things Yellow to bed. You'll be a happier man for it..and look less of a twat.

I thought it was widely accepted that stoner used very little in the way of electronic rider aides compared with most of the rest of the grid?

So 'young man Rossi' spat his dummy out yet 'old man Rossi' is really brave?

Your'e that boring bloke in the pub that EVERYONE tries their best to avoid........................but occassionally he corners you, bores the ass off of you and still get's a drink from you.

My round, what's your poison? ;)

" A 500 is a 500 sunshine"

...is that right Wosi?  A REAL 500 is the screamer type, used by the likes of Doohan, as only the best could ride them fast, and was demoralising for the likes of Criville and Okada, (who couldn't ride it).....not so the later big bang, less peaky 'drones', that the mortals could push around at a decent pace.

So no......a 500 aint always a 500 sunshine....

Doohan got the big bang in 92 while everybody else had to wait and was miles ahead til his Assen smash. It gave him the avantage and he used it. Prior to that he was always getting beat on the screamer..in between falling off.

He won his first two titles on a big bang from memory.

In any case..the bikes nowadays are easier to ride with all the rider aids, which do exactly what they say on the tin.

Are you suggesting Rossi is a poof for riding a big bang 500 Mark?

Not at all Wosi..

...merely stating that the big bang 500's of the Rossi generation, were a lot more rider friendly than the real fire breathing, maiming (and faster in the right hands) monsters that roamed the circuits before.....

yes vtwin

and the 800cc 4 strokes than Stoner rode were even far more user friendly than any 2 stroke GP bike ever.
Ever ridden one?

I'd agree, especially when they only weighed 115 kg. More power to weight than todays bikes, no electronics and dodgy tyres?

The pinacle of GP in my view.
