MotoGP » Red Bull increases Honda backing


I suppose you kicked the TV screen in Japan 92 when Rothmans used the big bang and the 3 little buttons on the left bar. Its innovation, and in the words of Ecclestone "its not my job to slow 1 team down, its for the others to catch up". Honda don't want you to buy any other bike than theirs, neither do any other manufacturer, its only natural that they try to produce the best, they went 4 years without winning anything other than the 250, did you moan Yamaha were cheating? Dorna have but the breaks on Honda many many times, you are just to blinkered to see it.

More waffle? I'm no expert but I think all the seamless gearbox does is select the next gear before disengaging the previous, it is still a manual operation. It is an innovation that will become common place, all Honda do as a brilliant engineering company is when a rule is put in place find a way to achieve the result with an alternative. You are like the idiots in 2007 that wanted the Ducati banning because it found a way to get the best out of its limited fuel and found a rider that could exploit it. What do you want Dorna to do predict what Honda are going to come up with next and ban it? Honda were the only ones against single ECU and now spec code and Dorna stuck to it. Honda wouldn't do as Dorna asked so they created CRT, next thing Honda back down. Have you ever looked at other manufacturers bikes and seeing what they achieve? Like Yamaha were the first to play with the ignition on a 4t to soften the engine braking rather than just a slipper clutch.

George Mcfly "@ RSMick. It should be noted that you carefully ignored my post about the Honda seamless gearbox, and it being a proof of Honda's willingness to spend, spend, spend in MotoGP to buy advantage." Its a development isn't it? Which is what they go racing for as a large chunk of the money comes from R&D. You talk as if it cost billions, it is now on the satellite bikes and who knows may be on the upgraded private bikes. It only cost €600k anyway and as all developments, like your PC's and TV's etc they get cheaper as the technology gets more produced and perfected, just like the point of going to spec ECU, its all shared cost.

TalentFan: . Dorna needs to pull its finger out. Now.
Dorna survived a recession, Flamini didn't, they had to give 93% of WSB away to Infront. Remember CVC only sold Dorna because of the monopolies commission, they didn't want to. Bridgepoint know a thing or two about business who did they choose to oust? Funny how people know so much about running a business yet have never run one.
