MotoGP » Loris Baz lands Forward Yamaha ride


"Despite the oft-heard claims here about weight advantage, the laws of phyics dictate that aerodynamic drag relates exponentially to speed. Drag is much more important than weight." Posted by Truefan. Weight is much more important than drag..... when accelerating from low speed, when power from fuel is all, until speed gets g High enough for drag to take over. Even then its still the power from fuel that is needed to fight drag. Restricted fuel = disadvantage for bigger and heavier riders. Basic Laws of Physics! Why do people keep insisting on trying to re-write them? Try telling Honda that size and weight if a pilot isnt important - ESPECIALLY when Fuel Energy is limited to what you can get off just 20 Litres. You'll be able to hear the inscrutable guffaws across the paddock. Baz isnt getting a Factory bike, so he gets 24L of juice. And he'll never get a Factory bike while fuel limits disadvantage him. The guy whk shoukd be fretting about this is Redding.

MotoGP » Aspar makes Eugene Laverty deal official


...... even if they could. That means EITHER, a) we accept that 80+% will never be in the same race in reality, OR b) the only way to level up the field is to actually REDUCE the technical complexity to reduce the cheque book and massive resources from 'buying' wins and titles. Without Option b) EL & all except the Top 4 are just grid-fillers. Pity, cos I think EL (& others) could surprise a lot of people given a fair chance. I will ook forard to seeing how Eugen runs. I reckon he's a good choice.

MotoGP » Aspar makes Eugene Laverty deal official


I tend to think EL has what it takes... but that the only way he's going to show that is in 'respectable' finishes on a abike that 'should' be faster than this years, but will inevitably be inferior to Honda's 'good stuff' (which also gets 50-staff to optimise it in Pit Lane). So EL will have to rely on 'well-informed' fans realising and interpreting his efforts correctly (assuming he goes comparatively well, which i think he will). Trouble is, Crash ably demonstrates that most fans aren't switched on and only look at the final position in a GP to base their judgement on a rider. This is the problem. MotoGP needs more quality in depth through the field to make it a decent race. Equipment and support gulfs mean that those with the most win, and can also control the speed of their 'Satellite' & 'Open' teams on a whim. Its impossible to bring all teams UP to the budgets and resources of HRC & Yam Factory Teams, & grant them independence from them to race them fairly even if they co

WSBK » Davide Giugliano - Q&A


Good to read something from DG. His all-out style suggests 'nutter' and that not too much thought, just natural ability goes into his riding... but this interview shows there's a lot more going on under that bash hat than it might seem. Again... its the same story of how much money you bring dictating where you get to ride and what you get to ride, rather than talent and ability alone. I still think that DG isn't the rounded rider that Chas is... but also if he gets to keep his raw speed and combine that with Chas' analytical and thinking approach to maximise his setup and opportunity.... then this guy could really produce something!

MotoGP » Dovizioso plays down fastest lap


I think I will just stick to what DG says, not your usual "lets try to undermine & discredit the poster, cos he's saying things we'd rather not highlight" stuff. DG clearly and openly states that the electronics can do things you are determined to try and say they can't. Im sure you'll understand if I dont believe you. In the credibility stakes he's a winner while you are disqualified Mick.

MotoGP » Dovizioso plays down fastest lap


RSMick: Point me in the direction of what particular! He talks about using PID, years old stuff, cruise control good example, something I use a lot in all sorts of processes, an easy equation to program but not easy to set up, need a lot of patience. WSB has open electronics using devices that are banned in GP, he is also an analyst not a programmer which he clearly explains.
What about all that stuff you wrote insisting that the ECU cannot do things faster than human inputs, & they cannot do the things I thought they could? DG clearly points out that they CAN, and so fast the rider won't even feel it! As usual from you... misdirection tactics and attempts to discredit - it's what you do. It doesn't matter HOW. Stick to the point that the electronics CAN & DO the things that YOU claimed strongly they cannot.

MotoGP » Marquez leads FP3, Rossi misses cut


No one (ok the odd troll) is about to claim that VR is rubbish and doesn't deserve his seat. Very few will even listen to or consider that even Champs like VR, JL, DP & MM need a perfect setup & the very best kit to get results. Yet these same fans will stick the boot into the Bradl's, Bautista's, Espagaro's & Smiths for so -called underachievement while ignoring their lesser kit, resources & support. So, where are these same fans & their positive words and support when these riders produce a performance like BS here in FP3, when he clearly does a superior job to the 2 Movistar Stars? Data (no doubt some of it from the T3 pair) resources & support should see the Factory Yam pairing restore order come Sunday pm... Giving the Stupid Noisy ones the chance to worship VR & JL, & bash Smith again. Excuses will pour forth for Vale... He'll be cut some slack. where's the praise when it's due for Smith & Bradl then? ( Cal too come to that!)

@ cockerel. Yes Pol did a superb job. I didn't highlight Pol in my post simply as he doesn't come in for anything like the amount of flak as others do. I used Smith as the example, as BS seems to be THE rider that Trolls can't wait to get the knives out for, but these same wastes of space haven't the integrity nor the decency to retract or even give some small measure of credit when a Smith spoils their fun by demonstrably doing a good job. VR & JL have factory bikes & much more help & resources than the T3 boys. So that simply has to mean that T3 & their riders have simply done a better job (so far) than Factory Movistar Yam. Which is why this thread is quiet... The trolls can't bash, so they slither back under their rocks.

NineTimes: @ TalentFan Dovi and Cal were team mates. Right? and no-one can argue about Tech3 favouring Dovi which is a pure nonsense!!! Yet Dovi beat Cal fair and square.
Yep, I rate Dovi too. My post history will show me (like Codger but less so) getting flamed for defending him. Dovi beat Cal... But their track speed was closer than many care to admit to. No doubt on a Ducati Dovi is showing grit & quality and adaptability to that bike that CC cannot match. I defend riders all the time from unfair judgement of treatment, mainly from blinkered, biased & plain ignorant fans, and my defence of riders invariably puts me in conflict with the actions & policies of the MSMA & Honda esp. Which means more flaming as the fans who always back the guy/team that's winning care nothing for fair competition.
