MotoGP » Ducati 'not happy' with Factory 2 development


If Ducati are unhappy then just simply use the open software, well the non Ducati open software then everyone will be happy. Again Honda are not the main instigators of this complaint, its the REST OF THE OPEN teams and quite right too. Ducati knew what they were doing, saw a loophole and went for it. They exploited every loophole in WSB for 15 years, Honda's answer to that was do what they were doing and beat them. That would be the better thing to do now.

MotoGP » MotoGP Factory 2 triggered by Ducati 'advantage'


Talent fan you get more deluded every day, wtf are you on about now? Honda objected to the Ducati move to open for reasons more than have been written on here, Ducati handed over their Marelli (they have always used it) based software to Marelli for open use this also being used on the Ducati WSB. The reson for this is so Ducati can continue to use it with the benefit of open class rules, nothing wrong with that as Dorna have always wanted the manufacturers to share the software. However this comes at a price, it is another purchase for the open teams but more importantly it requires a lot more manpower and is far more complicated so the private teams cannot afford it, plus its too late into the season to integrate. They the open teams have ALL unanimously said they don't want it and COMPLAINED it will give Ducati an advantage. Wht would Forward want it? They are doing fine without it.

MotoGP » MotoGP Factory 2 triggered by Ducati 'advantage'


When have Honda dictated the rules? It takes more than just Yamaha agreeing to get through the GPC. They may have manipulated them just as Ducati have done in this case, although Cecchinelli has worded it like they have not just like he does when Honda do, or like Dorna did when Suzuki wanted rule changes to suit themselves and still do. No different to Ducati threatening to pull out of WSB unless 1200 twins were allowed or Bimota and EBR asking for concessions to enter WSB.

Honda could handed over their code and got the same advantage, Ducati haven't complained about the status they will be given, so both Honda and Ducati have been a little shifty here. Some may say that they waited until the latest moment until deciding and handing over the code for the very reason of preventing other teams using it. Did they actually test the open software at all? It will be interesting to see which software version Hernandez will be using, I suspect the open. Its nothing to do with pride that the Japs do not use desmodronics, Ducati and partly Mercedes were the only ones to get them working efficiently but the later dropped them, full marks to Ducati. They are now however a symbol of Ducati and expensive, remember their entry into GP in 2003 when they said they would have 4 cylinder but twin firing? that lasted about 3 months. I am sure if Desmo was the way forward, Maclaren would have have them by now, talking of which, don't they write the code for F1 spec ECU?
