MotoGP » Aoyama 'electronics-off' strategy explained.

“If we're slower than the rest, who cares? We've switched all the electronics off. Why hide a character trait that the rider needs to learn?” - Tom Jojic.

Very wise move. Better to start at the bottom, have the rider complain and then crank it up from there than have it maxed out, have the rider complain and then have nowhere left to go.

Very Spieslike in method, I wonder how many of the rookies will use this approach in's a great excuse if your languishing towards the bottom of the timesheet, not that any team would be that cynical..ahem. :p
I can see Hiro surprising a few, Honda will be keen for him to succeed and a factory berth in 2011 could be his if he does well..

Hiro is a hero and I wish him well. It won't just be down to him though, the team is sounding clever at the moment but I hope they really can give him what he will need to be successful next year, what ever success means to Hiro in his first season? It is a tough grid out there where every 1,000th is desperately fought for!

We mere mortals haven't got a clue!
