Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo left Qatar with zero championship points this season, unlike 2013 when he got on the plane leaving the Arabic monarchy with the winner's share of world championship points. That's bad enough news, but could it be even worse? Lorenzo crashed early in the GP, losing the...

Those who fear a Marquez whitewash at the Circuit of the Americas could draw some comfort from the raw numbers on the timesheets as Saturday progressed. Marquez's gap from Friday was cut dramatically, first to under a second in FP3, then to a third of a second in FP4, before being slashed to... 

What does it take to be a world champion? A little bit of luck, certainly. A whole heap of talent, for sure. But above all, it takes preparation: physical, mental and mechanical. That, most of all, is the lesson of Jorge Lorenzo's 2012 MotoGP championship. The 2010 champion came better prepared...

Lorenzo's fastest time of 1'30.975 was the best of the day as he and his teammate Valentino Rossi worked on various updates to their YZR-M1. Rossi was fourth fastest and 0.275s off Lorenzo's time, the Italian behind Monster Yamaha Tech3 pair Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith as Yamaha locked out... 

Yamaha have issued an official explanation for the problem they suffered at Mugello, which saw Valentino Rossi's engine blow up during the race, and Jorge Lorenzo's engine blow up during warm-up on Sunday morning. The cause given is exactly in line with the reasoning in our Mugello Sunday... 

Motorcycle racing would be a good deal less complicated if it was an indoor sport. Leaving the complications of housing an area covering several square kilometers to one side for a moment, having a track which was not subject to rain, wind or shine would make things a lot more predictable. No...
