I don't buy for a minute that, with all the technology they have, Honda couldn't find the cause of the problem. So it would seem more likely that they know what the problem was, but don't want to say.

I also think it unlikely that they would have sent Dani out on the bike if the problem had just cleared itself. I think the team and Dani would have been too nervous about it happening again mid race unless they knew what the problem was already.

Honda have a long history of refusing to admit to mechanical failures unless they absolutely have to. This just looks to me like an continuation of that policy.

Honda is building a new bike! I am happy, I was tired of everyone talking about Panigale and S1000RR. By right Honda and Yamaha should be building better bikes for the road because they have been dominating moto gp for many years now. It' a shame they let BMW and Ducati build better road bikes. Build them properly Honda/Yamaha, they will sell.

@petrolbonce is 100 procent correct. Big corporations only admit to misstakes when they have no other option. Or if they want to take the blame away from the rider.

Honda put Pedrosa on the back of the grid. Asking Pedrosa to get to the front in 1 piece is a bridge too far.

And dont blame Hector. Blame the character who allows him to continue to race in motoGP. Barbera has threatened to do this to Rossi for 2 seasons. But it didnt happen. Personaly I think its exciting watching Hector ride. Never know what is going to happen.

All credit to honda. If they bring out an RC30 style bike for the 21st century it will be good.
Not some overhyped hunk of ****e like yamahas r7 that we had to keep hearing about from *****ic journos.
