God can you people please shut up about Marc's supposed weight advantage? He's not significantly lighter than much of the field. Not only are there several riders who are a kilo or two lighter there's a rider in the class who is more than ten kilos lighter than Marquez. If all this toss about weight being so much more significant than skill were true then Koyama would be strolling away with it every weekend. That's right Marquez is 23% heavier than Koyama. Get off the bandwagon guys, it's too heavy to move with you lot on it. Next year he'll be teamed with a rider who is some 8kg lighter than him. Will his detractors then say how unfair it is that Dani is so much lighter than him?

This stuff about ECU mapping really is nonsense. If you've ever worked with race engines you will know that the ECU is mapped pretty much to the optimum for the engine, you wouldn't get much extra out of it just by tweaking the ECU. There are a lot of myths about ECU mapping that originate mostly from road cars. Road cars (even naturally aspirated ones) can get a reasonable boost from a remap for several reasons. They have to be able to run on pretty awful fuel. They have to run reasonably well when worn and without regular servicing. They are built to relatively loose tolerances. Such things as fuel economy and ease of starting are much more important than outright power. Moto2 bikes aren't built like road cars so you can't just whip out a dozen extra horses with a quick remap.
