MotoGP » Dovizioso on Ducati: The bad point is now

@jaybond Things in MotoGP are a little different than in the 990cc era... If you try to put the power and load of a current 2013 MotoGP bike through a steel trellis chassis it will be pumping and bucking all around unable to contain itself... You could calm things down by adding more and more steel but then you'll be too heavy... Next year when they take away another liter of fuel Ducati is going to start to be even more awful. Unless Audi makes their own motorcycle there is no way Ducati has the resources to compete with Honda and Yamaha when the rules keep mutating like this. MotoGP is my favorite sport.. but if i was the CEO of Ducati, it would be off to WSBK for me.

MotoGP » Pedrosa plays with weight, stays fastest

@amakusa I think the rules are trying to keep the multi-tiered championship that we already have from being even worse in 2014... Results from Race 2014 Races: 1-4: Honda & Yamaha Factory Machines 5-9: Honda & Yamaha Satellite Machines 10-18: Leased M1 engine Prototypes, all Ducati's, RC213V customer bikes, and if Suzuki finally show up. 19-25: ART's and then the rest of the CRTs. While I loved the long lost days of all true factory machines on the grid, my sincere hope is that the competitive gap between each of these tiers begins to shrink over time without losing performance. Then if WSBK gets beat down to the point where no development can be gained by factories then MotoGP will be the only place in the world to test motorcycle ideas in the real world. Then just get cost under control so that any factory can get into the game and work with a existing team to gain knowledge.
