Round 5 of MotoGP event will start on June 3rd 2011 - June 5th 2011 in Catalunya Circuit, Barcelona.
Construction of Circuit Catalunya from 1989 and finished in 1991 and in the same time began hosting for Spanish Grand Prix. Characteristic of circuit is have 4727 meter length with wide 12 meter and have 5 left corner and 8 right corner. The wind direction at the circuit can change drastically during the day.

For Dani Pedrosa this circuit is his home race, but after injury he got from Le Mans circuit made him might undergo the surgery again to repair his broken right collarbone. Surely we all agree that  Dani Pedrosa is very eager to race in Catalunya because the atmosphere very supporting him to get the best achievement. But he must think about the recovery first before he decided to back to the track again.
If Dani Pedrosa couldn't join for Catalunya, we still don't know who will replace him on there. But Repsol Honda Team still have Casey Stoner and Andrea Dovizioso to get point for their Team. And another strong riders from Honda Marco Simoncelli and Hiroshi Aoyama. We all hope Marco Simoncelli not change his riding style after the racing incident happened in Le Mans.

And Ducati Team after 4 rounds before already got a podium for 2 times, the first one with the warm and famous rider Nicky Hayden at Jerez and the second time from the humble and sincere rider ever, Valentino Rossi in Le Mans, both of them achieved 3rd position. when we review again what Valentino Rossi got on Catalunya, we pretty sure thats he will get a great chance.But we must fair, if only see from the rider, no one doubt about Valentino Rossi talent but for this season he riding with a new bike and this bike is very difficult one to tame. And Valentino Rossi with his team and Ducati Factory also doing a lot change to make Ducati easy to ride for all riders.

Below is the review about Valentino Rossi and Ducati achievement on the Catalunya Circuit :

Year           Bike                Rider                        Ducati Bike

1996      Honda            Carlos Checa                    -
1997      Honda            Michael Doohan                -
1998      Honda            Michael Doohan                -
1999      Honda            Àlex Crivillé                      -
2000      Suzuki            Kenny Roberts JR              -
2001      Honda           Valentino Rossi                   -
2002      Honda           Valentino Rossi                    -
2003      Ducati            Loris Capirossi          1st & 10th
2004      Yamaha        Valentino Rossi          6th, 10th, 12th
2005      Yamaha        Valentino Rossi          11th, 12th, 14th
2006      Yamaha        Valentino Rossi          10th, 11th
2007      Ducati            Casey Stoner            1th, 6th, 8th, 13th
2008      Honda            Dani Pedrosa          3rd, 11th, 13th
2009     Yamaha          Valentino Rossi        3rd,9th,10th,15,16
2010     Yamaha          Jorge Lorenzo         3rd, 8th, 10th, 12th

The Result represent Valentino Rossi as a strong rider at the Catalunya circuit. The Montmelo (town of the track) is probably where Valentino Rossi has his best record with 9 wins in total, 6 of them in the Priemier Class. He has delivered his most spectacular performance at the Catalunya track. like the epic battle with Jorge lorenzo in 2009.

Base on data when the first time Ducati joint the  grand prix in 2003, they can grab 1st position and the bike achievements at the track are not very good,  only get 2 times for 1st position and 3 times for 3rd position.

Like we all now Ducati is using the new chassis since Le Mans and show much improvement with Vale finally grabis his first podium with Ducati at the French track. And for Catalunya Ducati will also use the new engine, first tested after the race in Estoril.
So all the possibility still open for our Maestro to be a champion, like we know, Valentino Rossi always build his own spirit and motivate his team to achieving the best result.

So we can't wait to watch  him fight to win at Catalunya Circuit and the schedule able for Local Time (GMT+2) and Indonesia Time (GMT +7)

VALENTINO ROSSI, " NEVER SAY NEVER " (First time ride at Silverstone) )

After his first podium with Ducati at Le-Mans he not back home to Italy but he go to Silverstone and on Tuesday May 17th, 2011 he's test the track on the circuit, because is first time for him to ride in this track, after last year in 2010 he got injury after crashed on FP2 at Mugello and absent to riding in this circuit.

For this season 2011, Circuit Silverstone will host to MotoGP round 7 at June. And When Valentino Rossi doing the test, the circuit has finished renovation for his pit and paddock with ultramodern paddock as a part of to agreement with F1 to be host for 17th years and the renovation is about $43.7 million

He trying  the characteristic of Silverstone with riding Ducati World Superbike 1198, but after he ride for 4 laps the bike got problem with engine and electronic, so the test track stop during the bike in the garage. And after all happened,  do you think the test stop? Of course not, he riding again with a standard Ducati 1198 street bike complete with license plate, turn lamp signal and mirror, delivered by Ducati UK. 

Can you imagine, Valentino Rossi the best rider ever, nine times World Champion, the living legend doing the introduction track at Silverstone  with a street bike. He's the best, always can change the worst thing be a great thing. He done almost 30 laps, he's very impressed with the characteristic of circuit and he confident for GP on June.

And whats he said after he did the introduction race its very  detail and technique. 
He's very complete as Idol, not only rider, he's entertainer, engineer and good analysis too. What he said more complete than riders already did all laps in the real race on this circuit. That's why I said Valentino Rossi "never say never", he aways have idea to make all simple thing be a wonderful thing

"I really had fun, after a few laps with the 1198 Superbike, we had a problem with the electronics and decided to use the 1198 street bike that Ducati’s UK affiliate rushed to us. I really liked riding that bike here. The track is nice—difficult and very technical. It makes you work hard because there are very fast sections where having the right trajectory is important, and others that are very narrow where you have to have good grip under acceleration. The first turn is completely blind, and you must hold a very precise line, and in general the entire first section is really great, definitely the part I like most. In short, I enjoyed it, especially because there were many drivers and riders who have great histories in motorsports, like John Surtees, who told me that he raced here in the ’50s. I wasn’t following racing then,” joked the Italian, “but he was great.”

Look like  Valentino Rossi will doing the best chance for Silverstone because base on data from last year, Nicky Hayden got 4th position and he said after finished is "...this track is fun to ride" and his team mate Casey Stoner on 5th position. and look like the track on paper seemed good for the Ducati bike  chracteristic, even with the layout completely changed from the classic racing track used in the 60's and 70's.

MotoGP 2011 LeMans Race Result and Review

After Boring race in Round 3 Estoril, we found very interesting and dramatic race in Gran Prix de France ~ Le Mans circuit. All  happened is out from our prediction when the flag up and Pedrosa lead in the lap 1 and Casey Stoner take a back his first position on lap 2 and after that he flying alone in front of grid. 

Dani Pedrosa always following Casey and with his calm style doing the race and lap by lap very carefully until at 11 laps to go,  suddenly Simoncelli did overtakes and not too properly and make the front wheel of Pedrosa collision with back wheel of Simoncelli bike, Pedrosa crashed and the position he crashed very hard. Dani Pedrosa back to his box and he feels something not good on his neck and he has been diagnosed got a broken right collarbone.
Really sorry for Dani Pedrosa, we really not happy with all happened with you, Get Well soon for you, hope you will ride in Catalunya.
Consequences for Marco Simoncelli after that accident he got penalty, and make his position from 2nd place be a 5th position until the end of the race. and he really sorry about what happened with Dani especially about the injury.

The Drama didn't finished, battle for 3,4,5 position very close between Jorge Lorenzo, Andrea Dovizioso and the greatest rider Valentino Rossi. The battle make Circuit Le-Mans very crowd all people hold one breath its getting very excited, look like the Ducati bike is not too fast compare with Dovi bike and Lorenzo bike, but The Doctor never stop to trying the best he can do with what he has, with the high class technique he over take Jorge Lorenzo and he's doing again for overtaking Dovizioso, but Valentino did a bit mistakes he thinks when he pushed hard the bike its the last lap in  fact they still have one lap to go, and as we know, Ducati bike still need to improve on straight track. so he loses bit of time and he was happy accepted the 3rd position and said congratulation with Andrea Dovizioso.

For the first time on this season, after he moves to Ducati and become "Red" with the all hard time he past : his shoulder, he's adapting to his Desmo, he's trying to solve the problem front of Ducati become soft, he changes the new chassis for his bike, his accident in Jerez and many thing hard situation but he proves with a sincerely struggle, clean heart, patience all will bear a perfect and beautiful success.

Valentino Rossi interview after the nice podium and like always he said all with a smile "I'm so happy - the first podium with Ducati is a great emotion, especially because I arrived there after a difficult period when we were struggling a lot with my physical condition, and also to understand the bike more. But it's becoming better and better, and the race today was very, very fun. I did quite a good start, some overtaking, and I hooked my bike to Dovi and Lorenzo . We had a different setting and I was faster than the rest of the weekend. At the end it was great, because I did some good laps to go with Jorge and I was able to overtake him. But then Dovi arrived, so another battle with him. We are going in a good way but still in some places we lose a bit too much. When I tried to overtake Dovi I thought it was the last lap, but we had another one - I wasn't sure. But anyway it was difficult and congratulations to Dovi. Anyway, it’s fine like this; I’m happy for myself and for my team as this result boosts our morale. We still have to keep working and improving though, because there’s more to be done. I also have to improve and keep adapting my style to the Ducati, because I’m still not riding it as I should, but in the meanwhile, we’ll enjoy today’s nice race and podium." 

It's the one of a many great thing from Valentino, he always make us understand what the real meaning of sport. The one is accept what you get with all positive thing.  2nd The sport is not war but is a game so all the achievement is happy thing, even he must get the worst result as long as the battle is fair and honest he will accepted and with a big heart said congratulation for the best.

What's he did is very brilliant and Valentino Rossi is back, All people shouting for Valentino Rossi , called his name proudly. And he gave the best smile for us for his fans, for all team. 

When we look back to the past the history happened at Le Mans by Valentino Rossi (I already update this thing in my twitter account before the race) like this has earned 3 victories in 2002, 2005 & 2008, along with another 4 podiums. what you can see, look the years is periodicly every 3 years and its really a sign he grab the 3rd podium in Le Mans :)

    MotoGP 2011 Free Practice 2 Result and Review ~ Le Mans

    Actually we don't need to report something during Free Practice 2, why?? because during this Practice only Casey Stoner again dominated the fast time, from the beginning until 45 minute to finished. He had note time with 1.33.782 and only different 0.404 second Marco Simoncelli taking the second position for Free Practice 2. 
    And Dani Pedrosa from Repsol Honda team taking the third position with only 0.696 second with the first position.

    and Valentino Rossi team mate from Kentucky Kid the famous Nicky Hayden grab the best time for Free Practice in 4 position, he look stable with new chassis, electronic and combination with the soft tire. And for Valentino Rossi he finished all the Free Practice 2 only for 9 position with 1.34.966 and gap from Casey Stoner is 1.184 second. The Gap is very big for the racing .

    For sure Valentino didn't happy at all with the result he got with his Ducati, is very far from he and team prediction base on FP 1 result. He have a bit problem to find the right setup and he missing about five minute so maybe he need a few minute again for FP 2 too use the new setting.

    And when some Media asking about what its problem come from the new chassis, Valentino Rossi answer with very technical senteces :
    "The new chassis parts can only be a step in the right direction, but we were expecting different settings to bring a bigger improvement.  With regard to the rear, we were using the wrong spring and the electronics weren't perfect either; my bike was a little unruly, moving around too much and costing me time." 
    Like we know, Valentino's not only Rider, he's  very genius to be an Engineer too. He always answer in press conferences with some interesting word, detail, complete and simple to understand. Thats why all people say Valentino Rossi is very complete Rider. No doubt

    One again when some media talk about the gap between his time and Casey Stoner, he with calm and smart answer like this :
    "Stoner was really fast and I think he will go even faster with the softer tires tomorrow afternoon.  I was on pole last year with a 33.4, and I think they can go faster this year.  I can improve for sure, but I hope he doesn't improve as well.  This time there were no incidents on track.  Everything is fine."
    I never doubt with this man, the man born from Urbino Feb 16th 1979. He's the best rider, the best Entertain , the best Engineer, the best person, the best Idol. 

    And when all asking about Simoncelli and Jorge Lorenzo about how good overtaking in race, Valentino Rossi answer very mature and he know when he say a little statement it will be boom so with his style he said : 
    "Sorry, but did something happen?  Did they hit one another?  I don't think they did, so I don't know what there is to talk about.  If there was a particular episode to be punished for, I could understand, but for me there is nothing to talk about." 
    He very mature and he know his capacity to talk, that's why people love him so much 

    The Result for Free Practice 2  : 

    1. 27 Casey Stoner – Repsol Honda – 1.33.782
    2. 58 Marco Simoncelli – San Carlo Honda Gresini – 1.34.186
    3. 26 Dani Pedrosa – Repsol Honda – 1.34.478

    MotoGP 2011 Race Result 2011 Estoril (Round 3)

    The round three MotoGP already showed on Estoril and honestly we don't see something special on the midlle race but we found something interesting in the front and the end of the Estoril Race.
    Let's repeat again who's start from the first row : Jorge Lorenzo , Marco Simoncelli, Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner. And Valentino Rossi start from third row on 9th position.

    Look like it's a hard season for Valentino Rossi but we all very sure he will running all situation with a good way, because no reason to doubt his talent.

    When the flag up and the race start, we can see many happening on there. Marco Simoncelli and Casey Stoner almost collided each other but both can stable and back ride for the race, after that  the first rider fastest trying the gravel is Hector Barbera and followed by Marco Simoncelli crashed on turn 4 in lap one . And after that Karel Abraham Crashed and his bike can't used anymore so he must take the risk  to go back to box before the finished line. Another crashed is Ben Speis after riding his bike with fuel clamp was accidentally left on his bike that make he didn't ride well and crashed on lap 13 of 28.
    But like we know Ben Spies is patient and calm rider he maybe don't like it happened but he with humble said "its just mistake" and when he saw the all of race result he still sure his bike able to grab any victory on other race.

    After that the race just felt very boring, the sort grid with only 17 riders and than actually crashed 4 riders make grid more empty. And not too much factory team make race really not Interesting. Valentino Rossi like always running well on start and he can push his Ducati to 4 th position and Dovisiozo from Repsol Honda always counting him to grab the position, but like we know Valentino Rossi very strong on the corner and very perfect with the brake so Dovisiozo did the perfect strategic to pass Valentino Rossi on the one hundred meters before finish line and Vale said to Dovi "that's excellent".

    And look what Valentino Rossi said about this thing : "Apart from Dovizioso, today went well" and he still talking friendly and make all interview look good no war always humble and smile, and than he said "I'm joking, but Andrea obviously rode a race that was strategically perfect. I think he played with me a little, knowing that on the straight, he could probably beat me to the line. He couldn't pass me because I was strong on the brakes, so he had me do all the work for 28 laps before making his attempt, and he got me by twenty-five thousandths.”
    And the best part again from Estoril race is When Dani Pedrosa can passed Lorenzo after ne shadow from 1st lap until 24 lap and he can clear Lorenzo with the perfect overtake very smooth. and after he past Lorenzo he make a good gap again and again, so the champion for Estoril is the calm rider Dani Pedrosa. After his 2nd surgery he look confident and incredible be the 1st position. And Dani Pedrosa said after the race "I'm very happy for the win. But more than the win I'm very happy for my condition because it looks like the surgery was successful"
