@ Codger "Marc pulled the plug on the straight and went past Rossi as though he was on a CRT. Be interesting to hear Rossi's take on that."
Best guess? That HRC is a rocket, and is piloted by a Microbe. So - there's a significant advantage with less weight and mass to shove through the air to improve acceleration to top whack.
There was also the ability to increase his mass advantage exponentially by slipstreaming - Rossi punches a nice big hole in the air, and the lighter, smaller, faster-accelerating MM could then slingshot by. He did it to Dani too - the passes looked very easy & comfortable from the helicam shot.
Interesting thing is that Rookie MM's HRC managed the tyres better than DP's too - luck or a fantastic crew/set-up?
