"Don't underestimate the difference an aero package can make. We once got 2mph extra just by changing the seat on a 125."

petrolbonce, your comment reminded me of crew chief Tom Jojic's ironic response to Azi Farni's rather naively optimistic question about Smith's chances of a podium finish at Aragon. "Yeah, maybe if he gets a three bike tow on the straight." I'm sure Iannone isn't the only one looking forward to the post-season tests.

I'm guessing it's not just smith and ianonne that cant wait for the end of year tests. I'm sure there are a few that are remaining in moto2 that can't wait to see the back of Marquez. Without his bike and it's ability for what ever reason to be able to zip down the straight like that, I'm sure the other guys are having more belief in their title aspirations next season.

In the first year of moto2 Aprilia pulled out in a strop because of the Honda control engine. They had already designed an excellent aero package which ended up on Iannone's Speed Up bike.

That gave Iannone a top speed advantage which enabled him to break clear of the pack and win by a big margin in a few races.

IDK what is giving Marquez such an advantage this year but I doubt very much that Repsol are fielding a bike that breaks the rules.
