MotoGP » MotoGP weight changes, software freeze


Yamaha sell more motorcycles than Honda and as I have stated and offered proof before, Repsol Honda's or HRC's budget isn't as big as people believe. What have they produced at whatever the cost? 2002 and 2003 nobody moaned about Honda winning everything, 2008, 2009, 2010 nobody moaned about Yamaha. Granted 96 to 98 people did, but not many were on the internet.

MotoGP » MotoGP weight changes, software freeze


A handicap in horse racing has nothing to do with the weight of the jockey apart from a heavier jockey will need less weight, in a handicap race its like the BTCC the better the more successful the horse, the more weight it must carry. Manufactured racing, the only reason it was done in 125/Moto3 was to stop parents starving their kids to gain advantage. Dorna gave in on Moto2 to pressure from teams because everything else is equal and limited engine adjustments. I cannot understand how this is argued by some people, who say it should be a riders championship, now because he keeps himself in tip top shape he is penelized. If your 12 stone you have no chance of being a Jockey, if your 8 stone no chance in Rugby, if your 15 stone you are unlikely to get in football or any kind of motorsport, its life. My son had to pack in at 16 he suddenly became a 6'2" brick ****house from already big so found other activities, not that he was quick anyway. At that time Redding was tiny and not moanin

Not reading the whole thread as I can guess where its going, maybe I should. But more fuel equals more weight, more weight moving around at the start of the race giving more of a disadvantage, also the more weight loss over the course of the race (if they use it) thus more changes to suspension and slightly geometry at a guess. One of the problems suffered by open bikes. Adding weight to a bike is a nightmare for the engineers as to best places to add it where it won't affect the feel, like Codger says at least the heavier (and lets face it they are not all porkers) can move it to his advantage. Load it on to the rider and again it causes him physical problems.

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


Gresini need Nissin and Showa at the moment as they are a technical sponsor, if they had Brembo and Ohlins they would have to pay for them. Last year LCR ran Nissin as well, a few years ago LCR ran Showa, 5 years ago LCR were the only Honda on Ohlins, the rest ran Showa as they are Honda owned (as are Nissin 41%) and always used Showa. With Depuniet running Ohlins, Pedrosa was the first to switch, when all Honda's switched LCR ran Showa's for a year for the same reason as Gresini, Avintia also run Showa. When Redding states that these parts are slowing him down, everybody listens, but nobody listens to Bautista, they just say he is slow and crashes. Maybe the crashes are a result of pushing to hard. Like I have said before, be careful what you wish for, once you get it you have no where to hide, Redding already experienced this when he was given the RSA.

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


Joeski: You are talking about the Yamaha that did not podium at all in 2003? With Checa and Biaggi....performance on the satellite Hayate the following year was beyond everyone's expectation.
No I'm talking the Yamaha that Barros got to the Podium in 2003 and Melandri couldn't get anywhere near, Biaggi rode for Honda. Even Nakano on the underfunded and tight Dantin Yamaha beat him. I am also talking about the year on the factory Kawasaki for the Hayate team that he got a good 2nd at a wet Le Mans but in reality never got within 30 seconds of the winner. It was all Kawasaki they just didn't develope it any further, Melandri's contract was with Kawasaki, they tested it along with Hopkins as Kawasaki until January when they dropped out. Don't edit the quote to look like I said he had top equipment in GP, when I stated that he had it in WSB.

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


Not forgotten at all Joeski, he just lost it, was poor at Ducati which got into his head, the Hayate was what it was, the Kawasaki which was poor before so why go there? Then a year on the San Carlos Honda where the only Honda below him was Aoyama who broke his pelvis and missed 5 races. He did a Biaggi and moaned everyone has got better than him leading Gresini to release a statement saying if he tried harder with what he had he may get better. Can you remember his terrible first year on the Tech3 Yamaha in 03? Whilst he is an ex world champion, so was Manuel Poggiali, who you say? and Biaggi, they just got lost somewhere and Melandri has yet to win WSB, yet always had top kit, so how do you expect him to come good in GP? He was known on Motogpnews all the time in MotoGP as Marco RNG (Random Number Generator) for a reason.

MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda


Sasquatchbob: Gresini have lost Go&Fun as a title sponsor and can't afford the Hondas for next year.
They haven't actually lost it yet, its more they haven't paid all they should and the company are reported to be in financial trouble, so no guarantee of next year.
vlady: Do you think he'll do better than Bradl??
Redding has followed Bradl's path, the 2 of the were on the same team BQR (Avintia) together in the Spanish championship, Scott was actually told to stay behind Bradl because he was winning the championship, when Bradl left to 125GP Scott won the last 2 races. Bradl though has been criticized for being a bit of a Cadalora. For those asking about Kalio, it looks as if he is on Italtrans Kalex, unless a favorable Motogp ride comes up.
