MotoGP 2011

Noticed we had a F1 thread but didn't have GP thread. Anyone else following GP this year?


That was the first race of this year. I want to hear your predictions for this year.

Personally, I want spies to win, but I don't know if he'll pull through this year

I hope rossi's shoulder heals and he can handle the ducati.
Won money on whoregay lorenzo beating pedrosa at Qatar. Was a pretty intense battle going on.

It was a good battle. The Pedrosa and Stoner battle was pretty tight as well for a while. Pedrosa so quick on that last corner. Stoner seems to be loving his Honda though =P

I'm all for stoner this year now that he's switched to honda. But simoncelli will be one to look out for.

Laaaaaate update.


What do you guys think of the simoncelli incident? I believe he was wrongly penalized as it seemed pederosa tried to run him wide after the exiting the corner. Also, if it had been anyone else, (rossi for example in the estoril race or that attempted pass on dovisioso), nothing would of happened. The judges are too biased causing inconsistencies in the races.

I tried to leave him space to make his own corner.”

“I saw in the video that his bike was hopping a little bit and he lost the line, he touched me, when I saw he couldn’t make the corner I picked the bike up but it was too late. He touched me on the back and he crashed.”

Repsol boys are who I will be rooting for! Simonceilli and Spies are the future stars of motogp though.

Interesting to see how rossi will do next few races. He seems to get more comfortable as each race goes.

it seemed like they were at the same wheel length going into the corner, dani had the inside and the line...sic shoulda slowed down...anyone that races bikes should know that...he had the pace to easily pass later on...as much as i hate pedrosa, he didnt deserve it, sucks too cuz now he had surgery again and will miss a race maybe more...

IMO it was a racing incident, i think if sic didnt get the ride through and got the podium there would have been more controversy....i guess it was just the build up of the prior racing incidents that he was given a ride-through...Im not a sic fan either but at least MOTOGP is more interesting with him around...

HRC looks STRONG this year,will deffiently win the manufactures championship...

SPIES needs to up his game,build his confidence to be able to run with the aliens, and hopefully the switch to bigger engines will play to his advantage next year...

Rossi is getting stronger as the races go by but wont be able to mount a championship run this year...
