MotoGP » Dovizioso takes Ducati's first pole since 2010


NineTimes: @ RSMick Where? is was around half a bn last time i checked compared to Ducati's mere 30m. and YES, HRC has all the rules in their favour, now do you have anything contradicting that? Tyres? constant bullying? last minute rule change?? want more?
Where is this figure from? How does the tyres favour them and what last minute rule change?

MotoGP » No seamless downshifts for Yamaha


SasquatchBob: One tiny example of that: How many races in the history of the sport have had all riders finishing within 1 lap? ie No riders being lapped. That's become the norm. Which totally undermines the "technology is bad for racing" argument.
Been said many times Bob, and I put it about the Abe debut race, when Yam provided Millar racing with a bike or just their engines they didn't get roasted for being 5 seconds a lap down. The internet was only just getting going and for the only people that followed the sport seriously was print or Euro/Screen sport although BBC/ITV used t show odd races in the 80's. Technology is technology, electrical, mechanical, rubber, fuel, ceramics. And as I have put before, what Dorna inherited: Youtube v=E5r62x46C0E

MotoGP » No seamless downshifts for Yamaha


Nice info RoadRace, some people just believe that Honda have a Blofeld type character back at HRC where they are planning world domination of not just the motor industry. The torductor they use as part of closing the loop for torque control, is made by ABB, nothing special, just like a dynamo that sends an analogue signal to the ECU, the mounting however is pretty trick, its what they do with that encoding thats clever. I am not sure Yamaha or Ducati have fitted them yet, they hadn't in 2013.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Motegi hard braking good for me


Okay, so good luck to Cal, maybe the weather in Japan will help this weekend as well. For those who don't like 'flag to flag' they have just asked Rossi of his opinion and he stated that whilst it creates more risk (because electronics can't save you) he thinks it is the best option for the race, they will discuss in the safety commission as with the astroturf, the riders say they don't like the astroturf on the entry but agree it should be there on the exit.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Motegi hard braking good for me


Codger: RSMick....do you have a link. Did Rossi say why he thinks it's the best option ? He has been around long enough to have ridden under several 'wet race' rules so he must have a good reason.
I watched the press conference live ( Iwas working at the same time though) on the Motogp web feed so you need a video pass, the recording is on the site. He said that he understands that it was created to stick to TV schedules and thinks it is the best solution, but obviously more risky than stopping the race, purely because the rider has to decide and may make a mistake. Please god don't go back to the aggregate races.

MotoGP » Marquez, Rossi, Lorenzo talk MotoGP, F1 safety


Evolution: Whole press conference was Based on safety and i think which is good. At the last they all are human who are risking their life.
About 10 mins of the 30, you can watch it on Motogp.com as I am sure these have. It is edited as well , nicely missing the point Rossi made about real grass. Codger, really you have to watch it because he didn't say he was for it or against it, none of them did.
