honda spend in MotoGP. i hear 380.000.000.- and that was befor honda quit F1. F1 honda said to spend 500.000.000.-(1 year)
After quitting F1 Honda made a huge step in performans. And they came out in 1 season with 3 new rvc's. the bike honda started with, then another 1 came wich the riders prefer. short after Honda announced to have yet another totaly new rcv. wich was no improvement over the previeus one.
So racing is in honda's dna but more than that 380.000.000.- + 500.000.000.- is in honda's dna.
Honda also said if we use our full force (wich means all our money ) we wil win!!!

I just have to LOL at the disagree to my statement about MM having the most wins by next season. He will likely match VR by the end of this season, and he'll easily net more wins next season. Some Crash.net posters are nuts.

Ha, yes Realist Marquez is the next legend in the making, everyone can see that.

Yearby Doohan for me best Honda rider ever, nxt would be Stoner, but Marc may relegate him to third -in my list-. Last year I was resisting Marquez but this year l'm too much in awe of him. To surpass Doohan though he'll need at least to get a few titles first!

Nakamoto grudgingly admitted that a rev limit would work.... but stayed well away from admitting it would also remove the need for some v v expensive exotic materials, also pneumatic valves etc. In other words take away a lot of the advantages Honda can afford to spend on better than anyone else.

In the meantime Honda have the customer RCV as a rolling testbed as a contingency, so they'll have a jump start with std valvegear data ( just in case). Vast budgets give them options no one else can compete with.

He also didnt mention that Honda are vehemently against a rev limit in MotoGP (unless the limit was so high it didnt affect them of course - justvlike they have stopped bitching about the spec software now its going to have so much scope it wont curb their data-handling advantages IMO).

Look up inscrutable in a dictionary - there ought to be a reference and picture of Nakamoto next to it!

Yeah, as a Honda rider he'd depose Stoner. Doohan however, he'd have to win 2/3's of the season in a row to do what Doohan did... 10 races in a row from 15 in a season.
Thing is I think he could do it this year if he keeps going at this rate.
