WSBK » Pirelli continues as Official WSBK Tyre Supplier

JimmyTheRealOne: Nice. I've always liked Pirelli. They have the Italian charm which Bridgestone or Michelin lack and that perfectly fits WSBK. Besides, I like their logo :-P
But the lap times would be much better with Bridgestone and Mich.
No they wouldn't, not for the daft reasons of above again but for the fact the Pirellis are a lot softer than the Bridgestones in all aspects. They are designed to degrade after a few laps hence why the fastest laps in WSB are usually within the first 5 or 6 laps by all riders. Motogp the fastest laps are set towards the back of the race.

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A

TalentFan: Surely if the chassis suited MM then the Suter had to be good enough, as the results suggest? Also, theres still the weight thing hechad going for him, and I'd better not mention engines lol.
They didn't say the chassis suited him, they said he adapted to it and just let it move around which put him in good stead for what he's doing now. Although Birty being on MCN's payrole and as printed media get free media accreditation, he must have being speaking in Dorna (now available on Google translate). The engines give us a clue because all they did was buy quite a few, if you remember at Silverstone 2012 he bent his chassis again and they ran out and had to buy one from another team, so no special there and he still only just got pipped to 3rd.

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A

Mathew Birt said today that teams are now facing up to the fact that Marquez just didn't have an advantage machine wise. More teams are trying to ditch the Suter for a Kalex and that Suter are likely to pull out at the end of 2015, thus leaving a grid full of Kalex (apart from a TSR and 2 Tech3) and they cannot support this. But a one make series is close, but they will still say the other rider has better suspension than the other.

MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record

Kenfaustus: Ah so you have read up on the unleaded fuel thing then? Easy accessible information over the net., you have used it on 2 different threads (totally off course on the other), do you know who was the first to use it in 92? As for being dense my little internet warrior I am all ears, and as logic software is my profession I would like to know your opinion on the reason they can not smooth the Akira engines power with the Marelli unit and why they could not smooth previous versions of the engine with the Motec. It would be better to share your opinion rather than keyboard warrior type remarks, it helps credibility. Doohan was looking for an advantage very true, and as I said before the electronic control of the power valve had improved as had mapping strategies, but he wasn't looking to tame the engine, it had the desired effect by 'scaring' the opposition who couldn't use it. I'd like your opinion on the area of improvements in the ECU.

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A

Its only normal that the people on this site who doubt the talent of the riders and the genius of the engineers refute this interview, they usually refuse to even read or acknowledge any proof or reason provided before. Burgess is rumored to be coming back with Miller and Rossi has stated that he regrets leaving Yamaha and the reasons for doing so.
