This. It’s good to be the king
It's actually two different arguments:
Has Honda been cheating. Krop answered that and I agree with him.
MM's character. During the lead up to this weekend, we were locked down due to COVID restrictions, so I watched a load of MotoGP stuff. I have to say I was warming to MM, but after reminding myself of some of his activities over the time he's been in the paddock, I reversed that attitude. It's not just that he can be dangerous (and the Moto2 crash after the chequered flag in practice at PI is a good example), it's that he doesn't seem to give a shit. There is a good example of this in Hitting the Apex - you have the Race Director saying that MM regretted his behaviour (clipping Dani Pedrosa and disabling his traction control) and then later MM saying that he accepted the two penalty points but inferring that he didn't deserve them. He is quite unlikable.
Yeah, I need more of it.
MM cares about one thing....winning. The only difference between him and Vale, is that the latter plays up to the cameras...
Right now, he's probably not wrong. In the grander scheme of things well, dispassionate Italian would be an oxymoron, eh?
Perhaps, but MM seems to have been accused of dangerous riding by most of the paddock at some point.
If being an asshole was a disqualifier the grid would be much smaller. Not particularly an MM93 fan, but his talent is undeniable. Maybe he's shooting for the Dale Earnhardt vibe? I do think he should get more penalties for treating competitors like mx berms, but what goes around comes around. The next crop of vicious Moto2ers might savage him at his own game before its all done.
Great. I googled that name and now my browsing history includes NASCAR.
And there were two of them, so I don't know which...never mind
Senior. "The Intimidator".
He died on the track, so there is that.
That day shook racing in this country. Everybody I was aware of - fellow roadracers, motocrossers, racers across all form of motorsports and many others were stopped in our tracks.
Pecco wins it all in a romp next year. Gigi rolls out every gizmo he's been saving up for the past couple of years and gives Pecco, only Pecco, the decoder ring.
Black hat, pirate, swashbuckling antihero of the South, Evil Roy Slade, American ego incarnate - his end was the end of an era in many ways. I think that was mourned more than the man.
The most impressive thing is...they don't. Most of these riders would be seriously pissed off with MM when he bounces them off track, but they never dish it back to him. He can't control himself, he's so driven....but they can control the desire to give it back to him.
That’s why Top Cat needs to come to MotoGP. He DGAF.
I would have loved to have seen Miller grab the chin bar of MM's helmet instead of Mir's. MM would never have stopped next to Miller, but to see it the internet would have fucking exploded
If only there was some way to keep his core warmer on those damp October days…
Hahahahaaa! It would have been fantastic...!
I am intrigued about next year's Honda.
I going for epic bust or total domination. They have given the entire motorcycle a severe shake up by the looks.
