    Right then, i haven’t got BT Sports so im relying on all you good people who have to keep me updated πŸ˜€
    All i have is the press: Crash.net, Moto GP.com, MCN etc
    I heard that you can watch it all on a German broadcaster on the internet- is this true? Anyone know what this site is?

    Anyway, i quite like Yamahas new paint πŸ˜‰

    Get a motogp.com pass. Just like before the BBC coverage started.

    Nice bike.

    That bloke in the picture – didn’t he used to be Valentino Rossi?

    Broadband is pretty much the same price from all the suppliers, so just move to BT?

    Or have I missed something?

    He needs to shave his head again- more aerodynamic, less drag etc πŸ˜‰

    I thought Marc Marquez was Rossi now?
    Cal will be wishing he was anybody without a Ducati contract πŸ˜₯

    so just move to BT?

    Im on Sky and my contract lasts another year 😳

    If any of you use Plusnet as your ISP and already have Sky, you can add BT sport (delivered on SKY)for 5.99 (SD) or 7.50 (HD). I think that’s half price, and a lot cheaper than the Dorna Moto GP pass.

    I may do it when the season starts.

    Bloody hell, just read this:

    http://sport.bt.com/pages/sport/BT-Sport-on-Sky/

    From 25th January 2014 BT Sport will only be available on BT TV for customers who have or take BT Infinity. Use our checker to find out if you can get Infinity: http://www.bt.com/infinity.

    FFS my local exchange isn’t…, so does that mean I can’t actually watch MotoGP on TV?

    The Oz programme for the MotoGP always used to be good with some great commentators, best of whom was Barry Sheene.

    I wonder if it’s possible to view that – or has it been taken over by likes of Sky?

    Anyone know?

    For this season I’m hoping Crutchlow has made the right decision. I think he’s got the right mindset for the Ducati, just hope they live up to their end of the deal. Or will he end up developing it for 2 years, getting it just right, and then get spat out and replaced with a “better” rider.

    Rumours of Jorge at Ducati in 2015…? Surely not.

    Any idea who the BT commentators will be? Please please let it NOT be Charlie Cox.

    Edit… looks like it won’t be Toby Moody πŸ™

    Erm.. does this mean it’s not on Eurosport for 2014 then??

    I am very dissapoint 😑

    Going to be a fescinating season inspite of BT and the TV bobbins going on.

    Will Marquez clear off or will Yamaha give Jorge a bike that can keep up. If they go at it like last year then injuries are likely to be a factor on where the title goes.

    Cant see Valentino reclaiming old glory πŸ™ Who knows about Pedrosa but if he doesnt win then it has to be bye bye works Honda. To many young chargers coming from Moto2.

    Crutchlow will struggle on the Ducati, the rest of the Brits will do ok, Bradley to get on the podium sometime this season, the rest to do fine without setting the world on fire. Actually Redding may cause a few sparks πŸ˜†

    I think Hayden will go well on the privateer Honda.

    All the above may be utter rubbish we shall see.

    If Marquez wins it then providing Predrosa comes second or third then I can’t see him being ousted. Bringing in a young charger would be nice to see but I can’t see Honda wanting to bring in someone who’s going to mess with Marquez.

    If it wasn’t for the publicity and the big sponsors then Valentino wouldn’t be on the Yam.

    Pol got to be one to watch too.

    It is going to be a great season, the way Jorge upped his game in the second half of last season and took the battle to Marquez was just incredible at times. I can’t see beyond them for the championship and the majority of the wins through the season though, unless Ducati surprises everyone and turns up with a great bike.

    Watching it is going to be a problem, iirc the motogp.com season pass was stupid expensive.

    It’s my unhappy duty to confirm no, it’s not on Eurosport. πŸ™

    is it no longer on BBC? or is that repeated highlights only?

    don’t recall seeing it on RTL, but then I haven’t explicitly looked for it. RTL on German cable with Radio5Live via satellite for English audio, is how I watch F1.

    BT Sport exclusively I believe.

    I have tried that for some football, but just found the time lag between the pictures and the audio way too much.

    F1 isn’t too bad, other than knowing what’s about to happen at the first corner. Bonus is when RTL has an ad break (and some go on for ages), you don’t miss the action while taking your own pitstop and making a brew.

    Footie you know if a strike on goal is successful or not before the guy crosses the ball in. Imagine that kinda spoils the surprise a bit.

    Might check RTL. Think it’s still FTA on satellite (at least in SD).

    First day of pre season testing nearly over and normal service resumed for the Aliens.

    Looks like Ducati have built another fine bike for their riders too! πŸ˜• Hard to gauge pace from the first day but for Cal’s sake, I do hope they are sandbagging.

    I can’t see how anything has/will/may change for Ducati.. simple as that.

    Blimey, Marquez half a second better than anyone else. Espagaro putting some of the factory riders to shame yet again.

    Yamahas close which is good, young Marquez πŸ˜† what is there left to say?

    From crash.net…

    According to Yamaha, the Sepang track temperature is now 57ΒΊC and air temperature 35ΒΊC. #Melting

    Rossi seems to be going ok, second most of the time so far and importantly for him faster than J Lo. Early doors yet though.
    Smithy is fastest Brit, going quite well so far- good lad.
    Ducati is……..well……..the same. They can only improve though eh?

    Looks like it might.

    If they do enter the open class, they’ll have a far better chance both this year and next year.
    Generic ECU but more fuel and more engines.

    Got to be worth a punt.

    Do wonder how competitive they would be as they struggle to get ahead of some of the Open class bikes as it is.

    They’d have more power in the open class.
    Using the control electronics might force them to make the bike work instead of trying to mask it’s problems.

    Redeveloping the bike.

    Now this is all guesswork and conjecture, but i’d bet a pile of cash Honda have an ‘open class’ bike at their test track, running the stock ECU, with more fuel etc and have found it’s simply not better than their GP class machine.

    I think Ducati would still end up as also rans… it’s a harsh terminology to use I admit, but even though it’s <1%… it’s still an also ran essentially.

    But the Honda already works. πŸ˜€

    Increased development opportunities give Ducati a better chance of improvement, obviously.

    More importantly they won’t get hit by the development freeze. I can’t see how they can do anything other than enter the open class. Running the same bike with chassis tweaks for the next 2 years isn’t really an option.

    It would be a very brave move indeed.

    I hope they go for it.

    Great photo from Sepang day 1.

    Perfect lighting πŸ˜‰

    Espargaro is impressing, anyone else sensing that he may just be the surprise package of the year?

    Looks like Honda are coping well with the new fuel restrictions unlike Yamaha.

    Just looked at the practise laps.

    Hope they’re paying Crutchlow enough to destroy his career on that Ducati. Way off the pace, and I’m sure he rode the bike like a demon.

    Rossi doing very nicely just behind Marquez.

    People get swept up by the times that Rossi can post in testing, practice, quali etc but then he gets smoked by the kids when they start the race on cold tyres.

    He wont win a ting if they don’t sort that area.
