the tech 3 bikes are faster than the officiel yamaha of rossi , how is that possible ......cruchlow is a fast driver but for sure not the best at what i watch today...... hein !

Yamaha has always had a policy of providing the SAME stuff to the SAT teams. However, the factory team gets the stuff first - though not always (in the case they think it is too risky for the team or the part is rejected by the rider to test).

Though i think the days whereas yamha supplied factory engines to privateer teams was great. I think the Yamaha, Ducati and Honda need to make some sort of "production" agreement. If this fails then rules that factory engines must be sealed for the season and provide engines for X amount of money for teams. Though not as easy as it sounds (too much to write here), but it would be possible.

Bautista did a good race aim impressed.. Now about Cal what part of the bike is he missing now for we cal is Yamaha one factory has Bradl also use on Honda!! I guess that he have same engine, same chassi and now even the fuel tank that he say was needing to fixe is speed on the first stages of races.. ok today he was surprissed because he found problems with the setup, now is more dificult to finish the race like i say everythinhg has a balance and somethingh new sometimes upset other good But i guess we all agree on the same the excuse of ahh satelite bike ETC is not true.. And for me the only part that Cal will miss from Yamaha is this new Gear box and only because they know that Cal go to Ducati.. Because if he had stay with Tech 3 Yamaha would support Cal because is proving that is strong enaught for that.. Anyway will see what happen..

I don't think Cal's bike is faster. It was revealed Cal rides the bike very much the same as Lorenzo which is the way the current Yam needs to be ridden. Rossi's strength has always been corner entry and braking and it seems the Yam is lacking that, especially so at Indy.

Nothing wrong with being schooled by The Master.

Not many riders come out on top when they are in a dogfight with Vale.

Fair play to the three riders who battled it out for fourth. They added some extra excitement to the race after Marquez checked out....

To be fair Rossi was so much faster at that point in the race but Cal and Alvaro were all over the track on the corners there was no way he could get past :) Great pass in the end though! Oh and well done Nicky a masterly move gave Dovi a bit of what he dished out earlier in the season!

Cal should be proud that he almost beat the slowest Quick-Shifter rider since Yamaha installed them to the factory bike. All top 4 has Quick0shifter gearbox.

So, they were on the top level bikes with better rider assistance gadgets. So, no extraordinaire skill required. His bike no longer the best Yamaha unless he manage to get the same gearbox installed. No brainier.
