MotoGP » Dovizioso: New Ducati engine for Indy


You guys just don't get it do you? The new 2015 bike IS a total re-design. CC will look pretty stupid if the new bike is a big step forward. The new motor Ducati are running is shorter & more compact. That won't help the understeer issues until the re-designed frame to fit it comes resulting in moving the motor forward and tipping it backwards aka the RC213V. But what running the new motor now WILL do is to test it repeatedly under race conditions. Then the team can iron out any issues and evolve it much quicker than they could ever do if they were just running it in a few test sessions. Contrary to the declared 'wisdom' on this site, Ducati are not fools, they know where the problems lie and the new bike will be a big improvement on the current offering.

MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo signs at Yamaha


Brain:
LLarry: And I think that pretty much finishes Smith's time at Tech3. If Lorenzo hadn't re-signed, then Pol would have gone to the factory Yamaha team in his place meaning Smith would probably have been retained for a further year. But Pol will stay at Tech3 now, so the writing is on the wall.
Who do you replace him with? Bradl, Crutchlow are signed, A Espargaro and Vinales are rumored to be signed. Bautista maybe, Johnny Rea?
Tech3 has indicated it's likely to be a young rider from Moto2 or Moto3.

MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo signs at Yamaha


Not a surprise really. For Lorenzo, with both Repsol Honda's taken there is no better package available. For Yamaha, there is no better rider available. Makes sense for both parties. Now let's hope that Yamaha gets its act together and comes up with a bike that is genuinely able to challenge the RC213V so he can give MM a run for his money.
