Mugello MotoGP: Marquez knocks Lorenzo for six

Marc Marquez was forced to fight hard with fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo to make it six wins from six races in 2014 at Mugello. Lorenzo and Marquez moved to the front of the pack early on in the race and pulled away from the rest of the field, although Marquez looked unable to make a move on Lorenzo. Marquez left it late...

It's everything a GP should be Mugello isn't it. I had a weekend there in 1995. Casanova / Savelli for me. A repeat visit long over due and shall remain so for some time. Only another ten years before the damn kids are out of the house and I get a life back.

All the Biaggi fans were there back in the day.

Knocked for six - for the hard of comprehension...

 ...is a reference to Marc winning all six races this season and nothing to do with J-Lo's sterling efforts out on track yesterday.

 

On another note...  Is trying to grab a podium on an inferior bike better than settling for being 'fastest Ducati rider'.  Is this a rider being realistic or unambitious?  

Personally, I salute Iannone for giving it a go even if Dovi was there to claim 'the spoils' when the tires gave up...

I have no doubt

Rossi gives very good feedback De G, and the analogy someone made with Senna is an apt one imo.

These things are now rather complex engineering wise and electronics wise though, with by most reports the computer techs close to the most important among the crew. I doubt very much Rossi has much technical knowledge in that area.

Michael Schumacher reputedly had some background as a mechanic which helped in his heyday, but I doubt would be very relevant now. Jack Brabham who only died a couple of weeks ago would seem very likely to forever remain the only one to win an F1 or GP world championship with a vehicle of his own manufacture (Ron Tauranac's and his to be more precise). In mentioning F1, I do agree with Nostrodamus about the bike racers vs the car racers btw.

I don't share JW's schadenfreude for Cal...

 ...but he is totally exposed at the minute.  I'm not really sure how much longer either party can go on TBH.

 

The M1 obviously made him look better than he was...

I gather you've a pilgrimage to Mugello under your belt too. Oh there were plenty of Biaggi fans in 1995. He was their man back in those days.

That front end lock Bradl had in warm up was one hell of an off, and then Cal rubs great chunks of rock salt into his wounds in the race. What a rotten way to spoil a weekend at such a tremendous venue. Stefan didn't deserve that. But it's looking increasing like he doesn't deserve his RCVR either. Him and Bautista are class riders yet  testament to the fact that it's no easy motorcycle to ride. Certainly more fickle than the M1.
