I don't have an engineering degree but I have a loose theory: as the bike is tipped on the front wheel, the rear wheel acts as a gyro of sorts, and is inherently closer to the ground than upright anyway, keeping the cg low.

I'm also willing to bet that with the rear tire gripping nothing, Marquez inherently incurs no engine braking at the end of his stopping zone, allowing full attention to where the bike's actually headed.

Thats funny, I remember Dani and Jorge complaining about how dangerous and how poorly their front tires were performing in the first half of 2013. I guess Marc didn't have any of those problems with his front tires :)

And yes, if Marc's tires did not last longer than the other riders, nobody would be talking about him, that's it in a nutshell, Moto2, WSS, all riders are pushing the front and the rear out.

In my view Marc ride the Rcv more less has the Moto2 machine.. Offcorse its a lot diferente because one Motogp its more heavy and has more power , diferent tyres and Top electronics but Marc handles the Motogp like one Toy to.. Its very nice to wach this type of hardcore braking but i think Marc would not Brake or play like this if he was riding one M1.. THe Honda is small is more less like one Moto2 machine and with this Top electronics and top transmitions its very hard to beat, its one bike for Freestyle with one rider like Marc..

Realist

He is super fast no doubt, but what i enjoy more on Marc is the way he undersand the game, just like Rossi did, he is very very smart and he know how to keep is mind clear, all this thinghs together build one Pain of a rider, like Rossi had say Marc understand that at the moment is more less under control, and to force one rider like this to do one mistake is very dificult, even on is Roockie year he just did that mistake at Mugello that he was so furious about..=). Really this only remember me Rossi and Repsol times and Lorenzo really remind me Biaggi but i just Hope that He can be more Stronger then Biaggi was, If Lorenzo try one Honda and just dont manage to be better then what Pedrosa is i will feel pity for him..lol

Jack Mordino: “With Bridgestone it's the opposite, you need to push on the entry to the corner and in the middle of the corner it is more difficult to keep the speed."

That explains Lorenzo's problem.


after 2012.
