MotoGP » Smith 'in the hunt' with second row start

@pcxmac Firstly the gear driven cam engine improves cylinder head durability and overall engine reliability. In CRT you have limited engines so reliability is important. If you have an engine that already has better reliability you don't have to back it off so much to save it, you will get an increase in usable power (it might only be an increase in total power of 3-5bhp) but that's not what they want it's how quickly you get usable power that's important. And secondly what do you think the E in ECU means. They have an ECU matched to the engine, not the Dorna spec ECU that others have to use.

MotoGP » MotoGP Le Mans: Tech 3 boss responds to Crutchlow rumours

Yamaha are supplying prototype engines next year to customer teams. So perhaps they are talking to him about doing a year with a customer team who will lease prototype engines and put into a contracted chassis from Suter/Kalex/anyone else. Imagine as well if it is both Espargaro's in the same team, they wouldn't need much motivation to beat each other and a better learning curve than CRT.

MotoGP » Chassis boost for Bradley Smith

From what I heard Brad is braking too hard and too late (he's top Yamaha on speed through the speed traps), he just needs to trust the tyres, brake lighter and slightly earlier and carry more corner entry speed. It's easy to lose a tenth going into every big braking corner and before you realise it's a second gone. He just needs to trust the tyres and that always takes time with rookies, apart from Marquez who doesn't seem to care what happens under him.
