MotoGP » Redding: My aim is to beat Crutchlow


JedPB67:Do you remeber last season when he said he wanted to challenge Hayden? Well of the 10 races they both finished Redding won out over Hayden 5 times,
Hard facts huh? Conveniently left out the whole Hayden out for most of season and returns from surgery in less than top physical conditions and Hayden still beat him once or twice after that..... Look... Redding did good in his rookie year...do not spoil it by comparing him to an injured rider who was out or riding injured all of the year... it kind of takes away from his accomplishment...because personally "IF" Hayden was fit...Redding would not have beat him...my opinion but a valid one nonetheless since Hayden was in fact injured and out for many races and rode in less than top physical condition. But if that was the target...then he won I guess.....he beat an injured Hayden..... Marquez is next I guess...oh wait...I mean Cal...lets hope he gets injured too so Scott can win

Beard9X "If open rule was really helping others, then Honda would be the first to exploit it." WELLLL...not true...Ducati was willing to surrender their proprietary software for all open bikes to access..... Honda was not...period!!! so even if they knew about the choice which apparently they were not even considering as possible...they simply would not give up their R&D to the competitor!! A sacrifice GiGi was willing to make....in the end the protest of Honda etc made a better situation for GiGi as Ducati did not have to surrender their proprietary software but still kept all their open advantages...not sure what good it was putting in a factory option for OPEN because in 2016 all rules change anyway regarding software and they (Ducati) have all the concessions of open but with better software..why not allow everyone to have it whether they can use it or not?..

With the info they gathered at Sepang now applied to the "new GP15" or rather completed GP15...they should show up at Sepang 2 looking to create a stir...Shake down was completed when they tested the 14.3....they should dang near shoot out of the box with this bike... personally I think they will win a couple races this year...the debate will be more about whether they won because of a great bike built by GiGi or they won because of OPEN concessions.... time will tell...that debate will be endless because in the end it was the open concession that allowed them to build this bike based on unlimited testing and no engine freeze....a handicap that other factories had to live with and they still beat Ducati....IF they do not win a race this year, it will be a big disappointment to Ducati and their fans!! at which point they may start to seek a new top rider....but Dovi is looking real good IMO...

I think that the modified GP 14.3 was the GP 15 that they ran on track for Sepang 1...I believe the full bike was not ready but the stuff that mattered was on that 14.3 or it would have been 1000% waste of money and time to even attend the test. Whatever new data they would have capture at Sepang 1 would not have given them enough time to rebuild/redesign anything significant to then present the SUDDEN completed bike in less than 2 weeks...if they were that fast they would have redesigned the GP14 more than 6,7,or 8 times last year. Sepang 1 was a shake down of the GP15 in disguise and probably a test of the engine, durability, rider settings, electronics to gather further info to improve and sort out the electronics mapping, gearing etc etc etc. They could officially call it the modified 14.3 because it did not have its dress on!! Just an opinion as I see it....

WSBK » Lowes leads British 1-2-3-4 as test begins


Would love to see Haslam up there again....Certainly the Honda was not the bike to win on....although Johnny was good/ok on it.. " It seems he lost something that is very hard to regain." Yea...a good bike...granted he should have won a few on the BMW but he was the first to put it on the podium and Rea or Melandri...whomever you blame did take him out of that win at Donington...... Hopefully he shows well on the Aprilia...looks good so far and he has not been this high up since his Suzuki and BMW days

PS... I think the Ducati looks dang good...The face did not change much or the intake but the rest looks like a big improvement...I noticed it right away...some are fooled by the exact same paint scheme...and cannot rally see the difference.... I will say though...maybe a cheeky stab at GiGi but that tail section (minus the exhaust) sure does look a tad bit reminiscent of the Aprilia....short and pointy!! Would love to know what that duct on the left side cools...a turbo charger maybe??? hehehe

Beard9X Play on words...don't get distracted. The fact is Ducati is a factory bike with over 10 years in MotoGP and they needed concessions to compete!!! Do not get me wrong...1000% believe GiGi made the right decision to utilize the rules to put Ducati in a better position than they were in. Factories and race teams in general need testing and the ability to change parts and pieces to remain competitive. Now the whole conspiracy thing...well..while I agree that manufacturers have too much influence in the rules, I do not agree that it was Honda's decision to go 800's. That final decision was Dorna's..Honda were proponents for it but please remember that, Yamaha...not Honda... has the most titles and dominated the 800 era...so for a plan they (Honda) developed they sure failed at it!!!!!!!!!!!!
