thats a good question.. Offcorse Pedrosa has done a good job but it would had been more nice if he could Win somethingh with what he prepare.. Its like we can say better From Honda enginers then From Pedrosa.. Wille with Rossi you can say good worck from Both.. because both Rossi and Yamaha deliver what was needed when they where worcking together..

That's rich coming from someone who just said that Dorna helped "youngsters" in 2007, and who keeps saying Bridgestone was a massive advantage for Stoner...

your sick kid.. God damm.. Go wach the results that speack for himself you noob.. in 2007 Bridgstone was a supirior tyre compard to michelin.. Go wach the results and see that who ride with bridgstone had there best years racing you noob.. Why Rossi won 2008, was becaus he change from michelin to bridgstone and won 2009 with all people with Bridgstone you understand kid... And yes Dorna whanted to stop Rossi sucess he new to much about the way the 1000cc whre goin on that time and was neede to change dramatacly the sport.. so one new class was so dramatic that you even wach Ducati winning the Champion.. That never happen in history, it doean t happen since 2003 until 2006 why? because Japonese Team where very good worcking that type of rules, Dorna had to change rules to see what would happen.. Lighter bikes are esayer for youngers if you read any magazine speacking about of WHY DORNA CHANGE FROM 1000cc to 800cc?? it just dont seaam right.. why? Because its more esay for guys

Funny, crash erases other comments, yet you insult point blank other users, and they let it slide...

Your theory is very funny, if it wasn't for one fatal flaw: You are mixing engine displacement with weight. And if anything, the bikes have been getting heavier and heavier snce the 500cc, and this is Dorna mandated. I will even quote the wiki for you:

"In 2007 the maximum engine capacity was reduced to 800 cc without reducing the existing weight restriction. "

"We hope to improve the braking in the future and like this it will be much easier for me to be a real fighter, like I was before when I had a good-braking bike." Lorenzo.

So when did it stop being a good-braking bike?

As most people are saying, looks like the development of the bike has been focused too much around Lorenzo's super smooth style of riding . What surprises me is that now even he's not happy about it. Cal and Rossi way of riding is different, they can't ride like Lorenzo and both seem to be having a similar problem, they can't find the pace at the beginning of the race. Cal , having a slightly different bike, complained about fuel tank and fuel load. He's now got the new tank and chassis so we'll see how that goes (not too well so far). Rossi complains are about front problems and breaking issues, and now Lorenzo seems to agree.

Yamaha definitely need to improve things, but I don't think we'll see any big changes until next year.

Dude you make me laught.. Go wach what riders say about the diference between 800cc and 1000cc it doeans matter if the weight was resctricted because with a small engine they can fit the weight on diferente ways and the bike was overall esayer to ride, but like i say go wach what riders talck about because the riders are who feel the diference.. and for you wach Repsol PEDROSA bikes wach

The "riders" say that the 800cc were more peaky, and it was harder to steer the bike with power with them. Now add to that the fact that weight stayed the same, and i wonder how you can conclude that that was created to "help youngsters".

The 800cc were created to appease Honda,regarding the fuel consumptions, and the safety concerns about top speeds. Read a bit mate. And stop insulting me.

"This season's bikes allow you to brake later and corner more quickly"

After claiming the third fastest time of the Sepang test, Repsol's Dani Pedrosa looks ahead to the start of the season on April 6th in Qatar

The opening preseason test of 2012 took place this week in Malaysia at the scorching Sepang circuit. Dani Pedrosa ended the three day test with the third fastest time overall. With the introduction of 1000cc bikes to the MotoGP World Championship this season, the Repsol rider was carrying out an extensive program in order to develop his Repsol Honda RC213V - the succesor to the 2011 title winning machine.

How did the first 1000cc test in Sepang go?

"The test went well. We were able to try out a lot of things considering that it was the first time back for us. Obviously the bike is more powerful and takes more out of you physically, so to be tired at the end of the third day is fairly normal."

Do you note the difference between the 800cc and the 1000cc bikes?

"Definitely.
