MotoGP » Bosch talks CRT MotoGP electronics


I'd imagine it's like the magneti marelli Marvel ECU Yamaha use, in that the Bosch unit comes complete with various standard programs that a car could use also..but the technicians working for the team can add to the base settings with myriad other programs that are important to their application. Of course, you're bike is only ever going to be as good as the chap creating the program is proficient in creating the very best of software. Yamaha will remind anyone of this when they lost their very best software tech guys to Honda a couple of seasons ago. I thought BMW WSB went their own way with their electronics..weren't they creating them in house ?? I could be wrong but I assumed this was one of their issues, they were doing too much in house development..

MotoGP » Gabor Talmacsi turns to four-wheels


@'ps...gibbon75' Thanks for the response and I think you're right and at the same time you're wrong...not wrong but read further.. 'What Stefano thinks is what I ( Gabor )think, what he says is what I say....,' remember those words when the whole Martinez debacle came to a sorry conclusion ? So, just how many genuine issues do you leave to your managements discretion before saying enough is enough ? I'd say that is an excuse...Gabor messed up time and time again because Gabor always knew best...and if Stefano inked the deals and agreed with all that went on, then just who ran the 'Gabor show'...could it have been Gabor himself by any chance ?? Edit: Yes, no doubts about Martinez not being squeaky clean in the whole affair, even if he did maintain he'd not, 'seen this type of sadness in 28yrs of racing'..there was certainly a lot we'll probably never know, apart from all the second bike, bike spec, contractual and advertising etc etc nonsense.

MotoGP » Gabor Talmacsi turns to four-wheels


Good luck to him but Talmacsi is only ever going to be a 'team Gabor' player and not an overall team player, it was a big drawback with prospective employers..nobody believed Gabor had anyone but himself to promote after KTM entrusted him into aiding Kallio to win the '05 125cc title..and Kallio would have won it on points if he'd moved over in the infamous Qatar last lap overtake. He had massive sponsor support that went straight to his head and 'he behaved like a champion of champions, telling us what we could and could not use his likeness for' (in advertising ) said none other than multi world champion Martinez Aspar..he left 250 convinced he was better placed on an 800cc Honda but still couldn't buy results in motogp..his 'ambition overtook his talent' as Stoner would say lol

F1 » Sky to be 'ultimate news service for F1'


If you're a motorsports fan then you need sky, there are far too many events you miss out on without it..when eurosport was free to air then I'd suffer the loss of certain other events only available on sky sports..but since digital came along eurosport became a part of the sky sports package then paying up for it was ESSENTIAL..you either enjoy it that much or you don't, if you enjoy a drink or two more than your sports, then spend it on that..the ar se at the BBC sold you out but it's done and dusted now so pleeease, stop whinging !!

BSB » Hill to defend BSB title with Swan Yamaha


Perhaps he has realised that he's best taking full advantage of what he does best, racing and winning in the UK...he's better supported there, he can take full advantage of that number one plate and if he's sensible, he needn't concern himself on the international stage again. He did brilliantly last season against a genuine world class 'go anywhere / race anywhere / win anywhere' rider like Hopper but following him onto that world stage may well have shown the true gulf between them. There's no point, he has nothing to prove..he's made for, and therefore, he can win BSB again and again !!

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 !!
