Agostini Doubts Tenth Title For Valentino Rossi

Giacomo Agostini, the most successful grand prix motorcycle racer of all time, doubts Valentino Rossi's chances of claiming a tenth title.

'Ago' won 15 championships in all classes during the 1960s and '70s, including a record eight in the premier 500cc class.

Rossi, who already holds the record for most 500cc/MotoGP wins, is just one title short of Agostini in the premier-class, and also claimed previous honours in the 125 and 250cc series.

After two winless seasons at Ducati, Rossi is returning to Yamaha - with whom he enjoyed the majority of his MotoGP success.

Agostini believes Rossi can still be a formidable opponent, but isn't sure he can overcome the likes of team-mate and reigning double champion Jorge Lorenzo.

GPone.com quotes Agostini as saying: "I'm convinced that Valentino Rossi isn't finished as a racer, but I think it will be difficult for him to win the next championship."

"It has been two years since Valentino won a race, and three since he last won a world title, in 2009. Beyond that, he is also two years older.

"Age does matter - otherwise I would still be racing!"

Angel Nieto, a 13-time title winner in the 125 and 50cc classes, is the only rider between Agostini and Rossi on the list of all time championship wins.

Rossi will be 34 by the start of the 2013 MotoGP season.

What do you guys think about the doctor's comeback?

Suzuki A 'maybe' For Motogp 2014

Suzuki, which 'suspended' its MotoGP activities at the end of 2011 due to the financial crisis, is still working towards a 2014 return.

Since bowing out, Suzuki's MotoGP intentions have been kept alive by reports of track tests for the new 1000cc bike, interest in riders such as Cal Crutchlow and the reported signing of Aspar's Randy de Puniet as a test rider.

The latest Suzuki signal is from Dorna boss Carmelo Ezpeleta, who told BBC Sport: "They [Suzuki] are asking us to have some testing during the 2013 season and if everything goes well maybe we will see them in 2014."

But while a fourth official MotoGP manufacturer would doubtless be welcome, Ezpeleta added that his main priority is to brighten up the racing.

"We have three manufacturers at the moment in Honda, Yamaha and Ducati. If Suzuki are in we have four, and that would be the same as [the number of engine suppliers in] Formula 1, so it is not a big problem,” he said.

"The main thing is to have more competitive races. If we can do that with more manufacturers than all the better, but having competitive bikes is the key."

A control ECU will be introduced for the 2014 MotoGP season, although the maufacturers will still be allowed to use their own software.

Suzuki last won the premier-class title with Kenny Roberts Jr in 2000, but took just one race win - with Chris Vermeulen at a wet Le Mans in 2007 - after the start of the four-stroke era in 2002.

Suzuki's 500cc World Champions:
Barry Sheene (1976 and 1977)
Marco Lucchinelli (1981)
Franco Uncini (1982)
Kevin Schwantz (1993)
Kenny Roberts Jr (2000)

New Delhi: Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, whose passion for bikes is well known, has floated his own racing team which is now competing in FIM Supersport World Championship.

The championship is a support race for the World Superbike championship, which will make its India debut next year in March.

The team, named as MSD R-N Racing Team India, entered the 17-race championship in the 10th race at Brno, Czech Republic and is expected to compete full season in 2013.

The team has two riders in Florian Marino of France and Dan Linfoot of Great Britain.
Posted ImageMarino is a four-time Superstock 600 race winner, and was a full time Honda WSS rider last year. Linfoot had won two Superstock 600 races in 2008. The squad has its base at Yeovil in the UK and technical director will be Andrew Stone.

Team principal Amit Sandill said the they aim to popularise and grow the game in Asia.

"We are looking at it from the long term perspective. Trying to grow the sport in Asia. The sport itself is in a pretty nascent stage in Asia so this is a first step," Sandill had said at the launch of the team in July.

"Trying to get to the championship and making a kind of mark in the championship and then take the sport to India and then other countries in Asia. We would also like to start a Racing Academy. Behind all this is the passion, which comes as a bonus," he said.
According to the website of the team, Dhoni is part of the management while actor Nagarjuna Akkineni has been mentioned as a Director.

Nandish Domlur, a cardiac surgeon by profession, is the CEO and Mangaging Director of the team.
