MotoGP » KTM unveils Moto3 engine


Trieb made bit of a hash of his motogp engine but worse still he refused to listen to ANY suggestion made to improve it..Roberts were fed a pack of lies with reports of 230hp 'all day long' but got rather upset when it went 'pop' after 10minutes..Trieb also had the luxury of a team implanted rider, Shakey Byrne was never harsh with his comments probably because he was paid to be so but the engineers were. He's a tad arrogant, I wouldn't want to be the guy trying to tell him there is a problem with his baby lol..

MotoGP » Dovizioso officially confirmed at Tech 3 Yamaha


@ 'Smiling Assassin'...why would both Jorge and Spies still be seen to 'evaluate' the older spec in friday practices if the new ohlins were immeasurably better ? Besides, the sat spec Yamaha is down on many things to the opposition but handling is not one of them, unless you think the initial front end woes would have magically become a thing of the past given the new kit. Do you think Herve is stupid, he is a businessman primarily and if a mere 10k brought him even a handful of manufacturer points he'd be on the fone to Ken straight away !!

IndyCar » Al Unser Jr. arrested for drunk driving


He's got to get his act together, it's been a decade and more since he's been under the all but total control of booze and many more still that it was apparent he had 'issues' with it..it's time to quit when it not only affects yourself but those dearest to you..it's now gone beyond even that, Indy have suspended his pre race 2seater role along with any ambassadorial duties, indefinitely they say..it'd be a disgrace if he's allowed to continue without seeking lasting help but I've a feeling they'll just brush it under the carpet, suggesting it a 'private matter' and he'll be back next season. It's less than 2yrs ago that he announced he'd 'conquered his demons' but sadly it was all but temporary.

MotoGP » Denning: Race stats show Suzuki's real potential


CONTINUED: ..wouldn't it be curious to see if the tyre heat problem could be managed better with the inclusion of the best system. It takes months to properly 'engage' electronics to work with everything else..as long as they stick with mitsubishi they're playing catch up..genuinely, the other teams would have something to really think about given a 1000cc suzuki and a magnetti marelli set up and as all we want is THE BEST RACING, let's get behind them, not treat like a mickey mouse outfit..for the limited resources they have at their disposal, they are a mighty affair..truly !!

MotoGP » Denning: Race stats show Suzuki's real potential


Suzuki had NO plans to build a prototype 1000cc engine and bike and certainly they wouldn't throw a penny more at the 800, the decision was made in june guys, they were widely reported as announcing something along these line in early july, they didn't..if Denning is effectively making them consider the future of an entire grand prix team, on race by race basis, then take your hat off to him ( look at todays evidence that may well be the case, such detailed performance data is aimed at japan, not us 'fans' )..forget the fact some can't stand him, if he manages to convince them that their inclusion would bear some fruit then motogp fans should applaud that...just what is the problem with that. Personally thinking, they really must consider ditching the mitsubishi electronics management system for next years entry, EVERYONE else has the latest marvel system by magnetti marelli...the electronics affect everything and I mean everything..wouldn't it be curious to see if the tyre heat proble

F1 » Exhaust failure blamed for Heidfeld fire


you can throttle the engine as much or as little as you like, regardless of the pit lane speed limit..the limiter kicks in when approaching the defined speed..you might feel 6k revs 'best' whilst feathering the clutch is quicker from leaving the pit crew, and less harsh to whatever components you need to be wary of...some guys employ excessive revs when about to leave their pit crew..I'd be surprised if there isn't a 'formula' for what works best but Senna always said 'like a granny' appeared to be the best launch from the lights but 'psychologically it'd never work'...slightly different than the pit stop but given myriad computer aided programs and analysis, it's still about getting up to speed in the fastest manner YOU feel is possible and appropriate.
