@ Realist. I probably ought to qualify 'significantly' as well. Of course, in MotoGP. when we talk about significantly we are talking mere fractions of a second, as 10th's (and esp. 10th's at critical areas of performance) make all the difference. The article was explaining how VR's Factory bike had the ability to negate HRC's previous advantage out of corners and getting to top speed - enabling VR to be on even terms, where CC's bike couldn't compete on the straight, thus nullifying his corner speed lap-time efforts on the rest of the lap. Spalding's a proper tech guru and well-respected in the paddock, so I'm guessing this article isn't just waffle, but substance. The performances of the Factory Yams against the HRC's will be interesting to look at next race I think.
