MotoGP » Rossi: Yamaha 'a little in delay' with ’16 preparations

Codger: Adapt or not Rossi has no chance next year unless he can improve his quallifying performances. He cannot continue to give Jorge & Marc the advantages he gave them last year, by starting the race with 4,5,or 6 bikes between himself and the pole man.
Rossi's average starting position 2015 was last spot on the 2nd row. On 8 occasions, Valentino was third row or worse.. and he was never headed on points in the title race until the very end. While there is room for improvement in his Q2 performance, the Italian has always worked with Sunday and RACE tyre durability in mind. There will be a level playing field with rubber this year, no soft option 'qualifier' for Ducati and Suzuki worth half a second. I reckon he'll be closer to the pole man this season.. not that it matters, apparently.

MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled

Chassis, engine and tyres are inert, cold and don't make decisions. The electronics on these bikes have artificial intelligence. They adapt to conditions and control rider input with the sole intention of making 20 litres and tyres last. They are adaptive, location based and RACE SPECIFIC. What good are corner-by-corner strategies to make fuel last on street bikes? Totally unnecessary and complete overkill. You'll never see them because there's a petrol station at the end of the road. Answer me this Mick..if Honda are so "Green" and concerned about the planet, why haven't they introduced Direct Injection technology to ANY of their production bikes?

MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled

Why do apologists for rider aids always say the same thing? RIDER AIDS do exactly what it says on the tin..and many of us are saying at this level, the very pinnacle, we don't want them deciding the outcome of races and disadvantaging those that don't have them as well sorted. They ARE NOT the same as better hardware such as chassis, engine & tyres etc...mechanical improvements. If a rider relies on electronic aids to help, they should be penalised more than the guy who has greater skill and doesn't need them so much. Fuel economy & engine durability rules means it don't work like's not flat-stick racing at all. If HRC want a challenge along these lines..go endurance racing.
