MotoGP » Three riders for factory Ducati team?


rbr46: Cal's only staying to p*ss off the Ducati staff. It's already a known fact that #29 has newer spec parts on his bike.
It's a known fact? Evidence please. I think Cal would be complaining bitterly and repeatedly if this was the case. After all, he would want to use this as an excuse as to why he is normally the slowest of the three factory riders. I'm sure Ducati is offering the same parts to all three riders. Whether Cal wants to use all those parts is another matter entirely.

MotoGP » Three riders for factory Ducati team?


It's pretty clear that once Dovi had confirmed he was extending his contract, Ducati was hoping that Cal would not exercise his option and move on. Fat chance - nobody else wants Cal and certainly nobody else would pay him €2m to whinge and moan his way through the season. As Iannone is a Ducati rider with a factory contract and factory bike in the Pramac squad, couldn't Iannone & Crutchlow just swop places?

F1 » Red Bull surprised by Mercedes brake change


107SS2009: As I said elsewhere, strange decisions were taken by race control/race stewards. Yes, changing the type/make of brake disc/rotor and pads after qualifying amounts to a change of specification. Under the rules of parc ferme changing specification in itself means a penalty starting from the pit-lane.
No it doesn't. Drivers change brake pads / systems from race to race anyway and on the grounds of safety no steward is going to insist that a team / driver persist with a particular part that has failed - imagine the consequences if they did and an accident occurred. This is Horner just being a pr@t because his team are getting their butts kicked.

MotoGP » ‘Thumb brake’ appears on final day of Honda test


grantrd: The nsr 500 made between 190-200 horsepower towards the end... No traction control and 2 stroke power delivery... Mick doohan was genius with that bike.... The previous generation 990's didn't make much less power than today and they didn't have traction control....
Just for comparative purposes, Doohan's NSR500 of 1998 delivered 180 bhp at 12000 rpm with a quoted top speed of 190 mph. In the last year of 990, the Honda RC211V delivered 250 bhp at 16,500 rpm.

MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa talk 2015 Honda


therealDave: Ducati = New engine November 2014 Yamaha = New engine and pipes June 2014 Honda = New bike July 2014 Game, Set and Match for 2015 = Honda
Not necessarily. In previous years Ducati has often been the first to test next year's bike and look where that has got them. Both the Honda and Yamaha are essentially evolutions of the current model. The Ducati will truly be a new bike radically different to the GP14. Will it prove to be a big step forward or a dog? Time will tell.
