MotoGP » Dovizioso plays down fastest lap


Funny. There's the usual suspects getting all defensive and precious at the mere hint of criticism for a mfr (Honda for the most part, & we all know who they are)..... But it's perfectly fine for posters to troll away slating RIDERS and say they are rubbish, don't deserve a tide, have lack lustre results etc etc... When they often as not patently aren't provided with kit to have a fair chance of achieving their potential! Two-faced. Hypocritical. Biased. Questionable Motives. Read the article on Electronics (Q&A David Gentile) on the WSBK page yet RSMick? DG clearly outlines things there that blow a lot of stuff you insisted was not possible, to be just the opposite, and that vast resources are needed to truly exploit ECU capabilities. Basically proved comprehensively that you will try & sell total untruths as fact to suit your own purpose & agenda. 2 words. Zero Credibility.

MotoGP » Dovizioso plays down fastest lap


Roo:
If motogp was a field of 22 hondas all the same , the results would be the same. Cream floats to the top dontcha know ? BS would still be struggling for 8th..... Open the other eye !
You cannot possibly KNOW that, nor can you possibly PROVE that statement. It might be right & it's your opinion.... But don't try and state it as if it's fact to try & give your opinion weight it simply does not have. MotoGP kit disparity means races prove very little in truth. As I type this, in FP3 Vale just got stuffed by BS & PE, while JL & DP are also behind. I think as Factory Yam get their data settings sorted the status quo is likely to restore that... But right now on inferior packages several so-called lesser riders are proving they are anything but. Perhaps you should park the attitude and take the blinkers off!

@ 9x You can't say it's impossible either. None of the people mentioned have ever had the same levels of kit & support. So it is POSSIBLE, even if on some cases less likely, that riders you dismiss as not good enough may just never get kit and support anywhere near competitive enough. All these arguments about riders keep on coming back simply because MotoGP doesn't provide an environment where the field are actually truly racing each other, even though they are in the same event! I think that's the key point. We should not have to wonder and argue... a proper racing environment would sort the argument properly through fair competition.

MotoGP » New Ducati 14.2 sweeps Friday at Aragon


Don-R: The Ducati will be developed around its most successful riders (Dovi, C.Joe), and that is never going to work for Cal. Not only do they ride very differently to Crutchlow, but the weight distribution is very different, with Cal being one of the shortest but heaviest guys in the class. The Duke is never going to work for him whereas the Honda - for some time developed around the shorter rider (Stoner, Pedrosa, now Marquez) - just might. I think he realised a good while back that any chances of the bike being developed to suit his requirements were nil.
I can see the sense and logic in that. Let's hope it works out that way for him.

MotoGP » Fast pace on used tyres key for Pedrosa


I wonder if Dani will chip away at his tyres and setup (assuming he gets enough computer data engineer resources of course) to chase a race day setup rather than Pole, and try to be canny to sneak a win at home and off Marquez through tyre management? (Mind you... seeing as its the TC and the computer ECU strategies that really manages tyre life over a race and not the rider, IS this even possible?) So far it looks like all those posters who said that the Honda's will be dominant here are spot-on... so lil Dani seems to be the only likely challenger standing in the way of a MM romp to the top step 7 the champers.

Seems like whoever has the best tyre management strategies for the ECU gets to win this one tbh. The Honda's have no fuel worries, have had (unless a Misano happens again, suggesting Yam have found something) the best engine braking strategies, and generally don't suffer bad tyre degradation relative to anyone else (suggesting the best TC strategies as well). On a circuit which causes tyres to fall away in a handful of laps... that suggests (as Dovi already reports) that the Ducati's (denied the hardest rubber) are doomed, and that only one pair of bikes is in the hunt. So... that'll be a (Repsol of course) Honda win then? Only question might be which one? (Slightly) more interesting questions are who is going to be 3rd, 4th (Movistar Yamaha's) and 5th - 8th. Pol's looking like he might spring a surprise perhaps?

cossiegaz: I just wish they'd hurry up and get however many wins or podiums they need to get the fuel and tyre advantage taken away so we can get back to fair racing and see what level they are really at. \blockquote] "so we can get back to fair racing" Priceless! Have you been off-planet CG? Fair Racing indeed! You just gave me the biggest chuckle I've enjoyed all day! It's frankly amazing that someone could make a comment like that without it being an attempt at ironic humour! Please tell me that you were making a funny CG?
