MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone

re: "There is not a single more important component than tires. If neither rider nor bike can manage tires correctly the results will suffer." it's no mystery guys. you can attend local club racing or a track day and see brand new tyres of all makes DESTROYED by bad settings/set up on production bikes. hell, I've done it. it's really quite normal. there's nothing special about MotoGP Bridgestones that makes them LESS susceptible to this. if anything all they're fancy engineering makes them MORE susceptible. 1 click off, 1 psi off, 1lb of spring rate off and yes, you'll go from P1 to P4. the law of NATCORK has already shown as much.

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone

re: "It looked to me like MM's steamroller was stopped not by any change in his riding, but in him lacking grip at Brno. His bike looked unsettled and struggling to turn in and hold a line (relatively, it still wasn't a Ducati), and also on corner exit." 1 word... settings. re: "Weirdly, DP's bike was great, when previously he seemed to have grip issues elsewhere like MM had at Brno." hey, how about that. what are the odds that Dan's kit would suddenly be SPOT ON at the EXACT moment that Marcus' went pear shaped...? 1 in a million...? 1 in 10 million...? I know one thing, if someone named Dani Ramal had taken themselves and a boat load of cash to the Roulette wheel that evening, they'd be retired. in all my years of watching racing, I personally can't recall a single instance of luck like that...? just sayin'.
