Thanks Joe, that was a great interview!

That dude is a wonderful character, and has a magnetic personality.

And to top it all off, he like the Blues Brothers.

Yeah, what a genuine guy.
Even though the questions were light I get the feeling he'd give you an honest answer to any question.

+1. You could see his emotion when he spoke of Marco. I also like the fact that he has his eye on the future, helping young racers and their families to get in the system.

I forgot that Casey was on Bridgestones the year he won on the Duc, and Vale was on Michelins. Hmm. He did still have admiration for the way Casey did pull of wins on an impossible to ride bike.

In business with Cal? Too funny.

And this interview was before Qatar, correct?

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.
