MotoGP United States 2012: MotoGP, only MotoGP

As usual in the United States GP to be held at the Laguna Seca Circuit this weekend, we will only have the MotoGP race. Then comes a summer stop until August 19 where we will repeat the Americas with Indianapolis. A GP that we have ahead of us as unique as it is atypical. Remember that TV broadcasts will be in the afternoon, more or less from seven o'clock during the three days. Only MotoGP, a category that has the difficult task of trying to get us to disconnect these days from the bleak economic and political outlook we have in Spain.

And complicated it has it in a category that seems to be dismantled at times according to the latest news such as the recent break with his team by a promising rider who came to give new air to the category such as Ben Spies. Hopefully at least he doesn't quit MotoGP. The DNI of the Laguna Seca Circuit has by number its 3610 meters of rope, seven left and four right curves with the famous corkscrew. Built in 1957 and remodeled in 1996, so far there is no driver that exceeds the 1: 21.376 that Casey Stoner marked in 2010. The numbers say that whoever wins this test is proclaimed champion of the category. This has happened at least five times in the last six years. Will Jorge Lorenzo be able to keep pointing towards the title?

United States GP Dani Pedrosa

The Yamaha rider, Jorge Lorenzo, has 185 points in the general classification followed by Dani pedrosa with 166 and Casey stoner with 148. Dani Pedrosa must take risks like never before and not turn his back on the championship despite the difference in points and the strength of Jorge Lorenzo. There are only 19 points, it is not a bulky road and there are eight races left without counting this one at Laguna Seca, but it cannot fail. It should be more than just regular if you want to have options. Personally, I think that he should give a coup and try to undermine the morale of his greatest rival and for that, only brilliant performances are worth it.

Casey stoner he has won on this circuit the two years in which he was proclaimed World Champion, in 2007 and 2011. The Australian cannot be ruled out from the pool of this GP. Neither of this GP nor of the rest of the championship since although everyone knows that he leaves "the circus" he will not be happy to leave empty-handed. The other MotoGP league they play it Andrea Dovizioso and Cal crutchlow as fourth and fifth in the general classification table. Valentino rossi For his part, he expects another engine that better suits his specifications, but the steps that Ducati is taking are as small as they are uncertain.

United States GP Casey Stoner

The seventh place will be disputed between Stefan bradl, Nicky hayden and Alvaro Bautista where the theoretical advantage should be for the home rider who plays in the Ducati ranks. From Ben spies Little can be said that they are not unknowns after the announcement of his break with the official Yamaha team. Maybe this will take the pressure off you and you can do a good job in your land. Our Hector Barberá he recovers from an injury and causes a loss in this GP. It will be replaced, as we have recently published, by a Toni Elijah who has also been talking for some time about his departure from the Aspar Team in Moto2 and the Cecchinello "affair" of last season.

Come back again Karel Abraham after the injury to his hand that has temporarily removed him from the championship. In the other world, that of the CRT, can count on the plus of running on a short circuit that can favor the performance of these motorcycles. The cake in this case should be in the hands of Randy de Puniet, Colin edwars that runs at home and Aleix Espargaró. So, with this United States GP, we will end the first half of the MotoGP World Championship.

My forecast for MotoGP

  • 1 Casey Stoner.
  • 2 Dani Pedrosa.
  • 3 Jorge Lorenzo.
