MotoGP » Podium is 'something special' for Ducati and Dovi

lux: I know this will attract negative votes, but for me, I remember how happy I was for Ducati when they had just joined and Capirex was getting podiums (remember once when he smoked Gibernau on the finish line via superior speed). But now... It just feels fake and they are even taking points away from Yamaha on their bad days, thus meddling in the level playing field of Honda and Yamaha.
What are you talking about, fake? Yamaha chose to race with 4 liters less fuel. The "factory" option is a dead end (deprecated in geek speak), so choosing to stay with "factory" software is just plain stupid. Yamaha should have left Honda to their factory stupidity and kicked them from one end of the track to the other.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Open class has too much advantage

@lux What unprofessionalism are you referring to? Lorenzo doesn't like the "Phillip Island" safety tyre and his Yamaha feels hopeless with its 20 litres 'economy run' fuel restriction. The first issue is Bridgestone. When Stoner got thrown under the bus with the soft carcass front tyre, that Bridgestone introduced as a knee jerk reaction to a few cold races, he was branded a moaner. But now that Lorenzo suffers from another Bridgestone stuff up it is Dorna's fault? For the second point. Dorna wants to stop the out of control electronics, but first of all they have to wrest control of it from the factories. Yamaha think that their software is so magnificent that they can overcome all of the handicaps and still win. That was their choice. Lorenzo chose to ride for the factory Yamaha team, his choice. The Dorna stuff up is to back pedal with this Factory 2 rubbish. Ducati followed the rules and when they did Dorna changed them. Spineless!

MotoGP » Aleix Espargaro - Q&A

@ crashnetdummies " . . . . all entries in the MotoGP class must use the Magneti Marelli standard ECU and datalogger as part of their hardware package. For the first time in history, electronics have been limited in motorcycle racing's premier class." This quote from MotoMatters. This is one of many reports that all say the same thing. I think I will take their word for it rather than yours.

MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo silent after more tyre misery

As two poster have correctly pointed out, this is the same situation that we had in 2012 with the front tyre. Except now it hurts Lorenzo the most. The soft carcass front tyre that they have used since 2012 was a knee jerk reaction to some unusually cold race days. It slowed Stoner down and it last year we got to see how much it ruined Rossi's riding style. At the time though Stoner was a 'moaner' so nobody cared. Suck it up Lorenzo

MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled

The irony of this discussion, that is leading nowhere, is that you all assume that the "prototype" class is actually prototype. Apart from fuel conservation, what are all these electronic aids for? In my humble opinion, they are to control a highly tuned engine that is capable of breaking traction and lifting the front wheel as soon as the power "comes on". This is what is required when using outdated naturally aspirated garbage, which is what all these moto blow bags are. If forced induction, specifically supercharging not that turbo nonsense, was allowed then a perfectly linear power delivery is easily achieved and there is no need for million dollar engines, pneumatic valve control etc. Then anyone can build a 250hp engine. What is needed is a real prototype class.
