MotoGP » Marquez not tempted by new bike challenge


Noticed how some Rossi fans are also becoming staunch Marquez supporters? Hmm.... the guy they supported who was the most successful.... being gradually replaced in their affections by the next guy who is the most successful. Just like here in the UK... where a soccer team like Manchester Utd attracts a mass following from hundreds of thousands of people who have never been to Manchester and would probably struggle to find the place on a map. Fickle. Everyone loves a winner eh? Funny that.

MotoGP » Marquez not tempted by new bike challenge


Marquez likes winning. The only bike he can keep winning on (2016 being unknown but the odds are still stacked in Hondas favour)... is a Repsol Honda. Hes not going anywhere. BTW.... Dont bother picking at my post Realist. Go wave your night stick under someone else's nose. Just ignore me eh? I now only watch MotoGP to see how bloody awful it is.... a shiny speedy show for dummies. I have zero expectations of it being anything else. Funniky enough I have been appreciating Prof X's recent posts... hes got a damn sight better handle on things than most.

MotoGP » Bridgestone to quit as MotoGP tyre supplier


Realist:
TalentFan: My guess? Its because if Dorna didnt push in new rubber, that Honda will use there 10x data engineers and processing power to create near perfect data solutions for the electronics on their bikes on those tyres. Then every circuit theyd just press enter to upload solution and bye bye!
Why does everything always have to be Honda, Honda, Honda with you?
Oh dear. Simply because they are the biggest and most powerful, politically, budget wise and are demonstrably determined to get and keep huge unfair advantages, and will bully and do whatever it takes to get the lions share. Yamaha have their part in this too, as does Dornas gross mismanagement. As you well know Why dont you just ignore my posts Realist?

@ PorkPie Youre just spoiling for a fight that I really can't be ar$ed to have with you. Its not even like theres any point to your stirring. Let it go eh? Someone asked why change the tyre compounds all the time? My guess? Its because if Dorna didnt push in new rubber, that Honda will use there 10x data engineers and processing power to create near perfect data solutions for the electronics on their bikes on those tyres. Then every circuit theyd just press enter to upload solution and bye bye! When the tyres are varied it makes them have to crunch some more numbers for every circuit, so it slows em down (a bit), even if not enough nor for long enough to give those with less data and less man hours a teeny chance. As long as the electronics are as sophisticated and rule every aspecg of bike setup and control, then varying tyres is about the only way to stop the biggest wallet winning all the time with stupid ease. Oh, wait......

MotoGP » Marquez: Pedrosa, Lorenzo strong at Jerez


@ PP & Realist. Have you read Scott Smarts Q&A on the WSBK pages? You should as he says it better than I. The relentless push and spend to ever higher engine spec and electronics stratifies a grid inevitably, and makes it impossible for an entering team to compete unless it can afford to buy in the expertise and solutions... which isnt for sale anyway. Basically Kwak & Suzuki were driven out by Honda spending ever more and driving the tech to ridiculous and unnecessary levels. Its also why new factories would love to be in, but stay out. EDIT by CRASH.NET: Removed poster attack. Please stop attacking the other posters.

And FYI... Jorges Manager turned down the last Honda offer and got Jorge resigned with Yamaha... we can only speculate as to why, but the cynic in me thinks that its likely a large bung woukd feature somewhere. Once Jorge got hold of all the facts if Hondas final offer (after he had already put pen to paper) he blew his stack and promptly fired the guy. Try again. No, scratch that. Its not worth it. Stay on fantasy island, its no skin off my nose.

Let's say Dorna run a focus group. The think tank results say that the most exciting conclusion to the 2014 season would be a late surge and a win or 2 for the perennial MotoGP Cash Cow that is Valentino Rossi. You can imagine that the urge to engineer a showdown between VR & MM would be pretty irresistible if there was any way they could pull it off without making if too obvious. There would be the added bonus them of getting VR resigned for 2015, this providing the opportunity to milk the Cash Cow one more time. Cynical? Who, Me!?!?!
