Marquez:
"We began with the base set-up from Jerez and worked from there. In the afternoon we tried things out with the tyres and tweaked the set-up further to keep going forward."

Doohan´s record of 10 wins in a row may not hold for long. The Honda/Repsol/MM combination is unbelievable. Repsol and Honda money, Honda kit and MM.

The remember programmers in F1 in the past being paid mega bucks, millions. Looks like motogp is the same now.

I saw Doohan win his 10 in a row. MM looks just as comfortable. Well maybe not quite but not far off.

This used to be a Yamaha circuit....

The Honda is now a complete bike. It´s going to take some magic to beat it. Well done Honda and MM.

The question is...

Will the dependency on ecu programmers be the downfall of motogp or will there be, in the future more top class ecu programmers to go around, thereby leveling the field?

Even more interesting was a comment made to the effect that Honda´s programming is designed to "learn" (SKYNET). The comment was made in jest but it does sound interesting. However given the corporate secrecy and almost total lack of transparency in motpgp we may have to wait years to find out. I do think though that to a certain degree the ecu/software does learn. During a race it may learn from each corner and apply improved updated parameters for the same corner for the next race. Just a theory though. Or perhaps it gives the rider the option to apply the "improved parameters". Again just theory. Maybe we will have in the future quantum ecu´s which override the rider if it knows better.

Even though I don't like all these electronics and software in motogp bike the components themselves are curious items.
