Pedrosa could use Dovizioso's setup from the beginning since it was in Pedrosa's contract. But that didn't change anything to Pedrosa's result. What thats tell you?

Either Dovizioso is an amazing rider or his bike is the only defected Honda bike that produce spectacular performance. Does Honda need setup? As far as I know, Honda success because of the bike not the rider...

Team Marco may not be where they want to be but if DePuniet is well within the top ten then they could clearly be doing better. Because it sure isn't that Depuniet has a better bike.

Honda haven't had a decent development rider for years.
Since VR (and I am not blowing smoke up his proverbial) left they have slowly but surely let the thing go out to pasture.

Once DP has been moved on we may see a new inspiration come to the for. Now who takes crap bikes and turns them around? Nup can't think of anyone, most are either on crap and go nowhere or have dream rides so no need to make it better. Or they can ride anything with 2 wheels and a motor... now there I am showing my bias :p

Of course the team has to have nouse, no good being a great rider if the team cannot make the settings required or the manager cannot influence the manufacturer to change.

The stupid Honda haters above don't understand the Honda situation. As if you don't really watch motogp. Thr problem they have as gresini riders said is about the front end particularly in the feel and stability. Which is mainly because of the Ohlins switch from Showa. DePuniet has been using Ohlins for nearly 2 years now so he knows how its works and Diovi used it last season. That is the reason why Dovi and Randy can be in the top 10 and other Honda riders cannot. Honda has been using Showa for like forever so its quite acceptable they will struggle with the switch. People stop being a fanboy or haters, know the facts.
