@ iohjnlkn "The traps are placed so that they measure top speed, which is a better indicator of motor. Wheels are straight, riders tucked in, throttle pinned - no special talent needed here. In this scenario, MM's bike is proven to be very average." Oh come on. Just watch the footage! And I'm not saying move the Speed Traps back far enough to affect things as you say. Eurposport commentary many times extolled that the traps often only caught the very latest braker's speeds due to their position as far close to the corner as possible - moving them back less than 50 metres on an 800 metre straight might well tell a very, very different story about top speeds. Given the footage shows MM is far from being the hardest, latest braker then its no surprise that the Traps don't record him being fastest at that point. Again - WATCH THE FOOTAGE & then deny that MM's bike was a missile!
