    Great video's!

    If only all riders were this relaxed and open. Allthough open is relative : he clearly splits the riding life and the personal life.

    He is very truthfull actually : it seems that within Ducati, they didn't believe him when he complained about the bike! What ego do you need to disregard the opinion of arguably the greatest racer of all time???

    Those are great interviews.
    Fun to see he looks like he is still having fun. And seems to actually be human.

    Last year I still had my Sprint HTC EVo. I was about to hot spot my Ipad and watch the video live while watching it in front of me. This year I have an Iphone 5. It hope they have LTE down there.

    Exactly.

    Be a hater if you need it. But VR is a thinking racer and (after seeing the entire interview) he seems grounded and human.

    And until MM gets up to full alien status and more, the future of attendance at races- and MotoGP itself- needs a big draw to continue.

    Everything about that watch commercial is idiotic.

    Except for the Ural. That's the real chick magnet.

    not totally sure its the ego...i also think its resources,and they dont know exactly HOW to fix it.Maybe they thought he would learn how to ride it as fast as the little aussie bloke

    And this why "this time" the Ducati turnaround will be a real one, the Germans won't tolerate that kind of attitude. They'll clean house of those sort of people.

    really hope so,it would be even better if there was a group with bradl,hayden dovi smith cruthlow so close that if the aliens make a mistake they will be passed by two or three bikes.I think thats all we can hope for this season.

    I just went and ordered one of those shirts on-line. My wife, who is a nurse, will love it when I wear it around family!

    Well he is The Doctor....it only seems fitting that he wear a T-shirt supporting nurses :evil

    Nice interview. Interesting to hear his comparison of MM career to his. He sounds grounded in life, and passionate about riding.

    I wonder where he DJ's at? IIRC he has a place in Ibiza.

    question, I've got the motogp subscription, won't be home till late sunday from trout fishing, how do I get to the link on the website without seeing who won the race??????? I'm pretty sure the winner will be plastered over the homepage of motogp.

    Can I also order individual races instead of buying a season pass? Most of the time I am home to watch it on BBC (excellent coverage btw), but some of the race days I am abroad for business. The motoGP website doesn't seem to offer individual race packages, any other websites that do?
