MotoGP » Moto3: Webb satisfied with Mahindra progress

“The mid range has improved a lot as well as the top end. We've still got work to do to improve acceleration and work on the engine braking” – Danny Webb.

@ Daniel - Webb DNF'd the last race & it was a lucky pole position because of track conditions during qualifying.

I thought these new 4 stoke engines were sealed units? Like in Moto 2 where chassis/suspension settings are the only adjustable things & no engine tuning?

I don't see many podiums from this garage, I hope Webb proves me wrong! Best of luck to both but i reckon Danny Kent will be more the one to watch!

Judging by the photo attached to the piece, the bike looks /much/ bigger than the competition, almost like a 600 - compare Vinales on the Honda in his Moto3 feature earlier. With c.50 horsepower available (probably more like 45 in the Mahindra's case) frontal area would be a significant factor in overall performance, I'd imagine. Or maybe Danny Webb is on the small side?

C'mon you guys no mention of the Burgess fcotar? these boys, once again, are inspired. It may take a season for health and re-programming of the fcotary mentality, but if Schumi and Brawn can do it, those boys will kick asss for sure.The Italians have the drive and the driver, now! No disrespect to Massa!!! +8Was this answer helpful?
