MotoGP » 'Honda is fair with its rivals, unlike Ferrari'


“At F1, Ferrari has absolute authority. To be honest, we suffered a lot in that period. In MotoGP, Honda is in a similarly strong position but we like to be fair with our rivals” - Shuhei Nakamoto.

You talck about Honda but was not only Honda that developed the electronics of there bikes i think elctronics packages are just part of the future and im order to be good they have to know how to worck on that!! Like we wach for road bikes the manufacters more concerne on that are the Europeans and also one of the biggest responsibles for this recente big upgrades on electronic stuff was the Ducati Team im 2007 that make big setps but that where cach from japosesed brands.. What i understand is that Honda is very good very professional and very tatical on what they do and we can t blame then they try to Win like one rider try win a race

same tyres,Same CEU's,same brake,same arms,same suspension-why not same engines?
what are Yamaha,Ducati or other factories there for if being set to be authentically the same?
and for those saying HRC has big influence on Motogp,pls observe 800 era!-nearly Zero title.thanks to Casey factor that cracked slipping into Yamaha domination !

If "fans" cared more about the tech than they do about the battles, then why doesn't HRC just rent out circuits around the world, hire someone to ride around by himself, and sell tickets for this "tech demonstration"? Surely they'd make a killing...NOT!

RACING, as per the first definition in a Google search: "Any sport that involves COMPETING in races". There is no competing without competition, and MotoGP has been lacking that for years. Most races are a time trial these days and the fans have had enough!

Sorry dude, you're a smart man, but racing is and always will be about the battles.

@Vilas
be carefull with what u've been saying that Ducati 2007 had big TC or whatever electronic advantages over other.it seems comprehension is not ur favorite thing.to say so,which could discredit Casey's achievement,is a slander when proven wrong.likely it is.
It's been said over and over that Casey had the mechanic turn it low.beside,if he,who was relatively young to premier class,induldged such a massive advantage of it,then why couldn't Capirossi,Melandri or NH.They fell way too many time which contradicts to ur assumption or delusion.
a just succeded Team like Ducati can't lose their formula(TC) within a few months,can they!-From The best TC in 2007 to a p!g TC in the following year 2008,right?

Maybe would be bette to let the 2 small classes having the same bike and engines for riders growup and for manufacters wach who are the real talents and then divide Motogp class on 2 games, they would creat the rider class that will use only bikes build by Dorna to all riders of Motogp and then we can wach who is the best rider and the other class is the manufacter class where the same riders that play on Dorna bike join there respective Teams for the manufacter champion, and then at the end you wach who build the best bike, i can garante that both Champions would have the same views because you also whant to wach who build the best technological bikes even if it can have times where you wach allways the same Team winning.. The diference is very exciting, you dont wach one Ferrari cup with the same feeling that you wach Fia GT because you know that on one you will have only ferraris and you wach the best rider bit on the other you wach Ferrari, Porche, Austin Martin, Lamborghini, Ford

the point is still we'd love to watch skill without limiting bike evolution since it's been a part of our life.I think riders would feel upset when they're pulling the throttle to its max,but it's felt like running under 100 km/h.isn't it easier to say 'okey guys,now swap ur motorbikes with pushbikes'.naa..which is more fun or funnier?

@inspeed we trust..

Do you have any proof or link to news for all things you had said.???
Because in fact when Honda compete using 5 cylinders their bike have more weight than 4 according to the rules.

And when motogp go to 800cc
(it's because of the safety reason Dorna said) and because of that Honda have to spend huge money because had to research and build the bike from zero again because the previous machine is the great V5 and i think so stupid if Honda wanted the 800cc and it cost them so much money) and when the rule back to 1000cc again, not just Honda, It's Dorna want like that , even Rossi and Hayden had stated like that also. Also all the manufacturers agreed with that.

Blaming Honda is a joke. They cannot force regulations.

The change to 800cc machines had to be approved by all manufacturers, not just one or two.

Spec tires have killed the racing more than the capacity change. But hey, if you're content on blaming Honda then seeking out the truth more power to you.
