Marquez 59kg (same as Stoner...)
so the difference is between 4.4lbs and 35.2 lbs
Your understanding of physics needs analysing. Equalising weights would not make much difference with machines of this power. Now, size does make a difference as the smaller rider can tuck in more to get an aero advantage. Would you like Pedrosa to wear a Michelin Man type and high heels so he becomes the same height/frame as the largest rider?
One of the heaviest and tallest riders in all 3 classes is Scott Redding in Moto2 and he is currently 2nd. Why does your 'basic physics' not apply to him?
