MotoGP » Incidents mar Michelin MotoGP test

RaceRoad & JedPB67 .....It was a throwaway comment on my part. My first thought was Rossi on the Ducati. The bike was difficult to ride due to inherent understeer. Casey found (In 2007) that he could overcome it by picking the bike up and steering with the rear. That capability went, or diminished, in 08 and later, when changes to the software and engine power delivery changes made rear wheel steering more difficult. Soon after Rossi took over the bike Bridgstone brought out a new front tyre which was 'squidgy' in feel. Rossi hated it. It was to Rossi's credit that his race times still kept pace with those that Casey and Nicky had delivered. Unfortunately Honda and Yamaha had upped the stakes.

MotoGP » Marquez: We've done all our homework

Brian.....My point ? I suggested to Liam94 that maybe he was a little hasty in saying that Jorge was the only rider to challenge Marquez. I'm not saying that Liam is wrong, just that it's too soon to tell. I used Rossi's pace simply because the old feller is on a Yam the same as Lorenzo. The 6 lap stints has no bearing on it, he was testing stuff, but he did finish the day setting a good pace (if only for 4 laps, but all 4 were quick) You can't rule out Dani either. Or Dovi. Or Cal. Or Iannone. I am well aware that Marc's race sim was in cooler conditions than Jorge's, hence the difference in pace, but I've no idea what the conditions were in the Italian's last exit.

MotoGP » Ducati: GP15 decision after Qatar test

Not Joking Yearby23, here is what Jezzer actually said :- "....... I can watch some of these lesser riders on the Ducatis and you can see that the bikes are, in my opinion, unsuitably set for what they want to try and do with them. I’m not saying anybody’s doing a bad job. I see these things wobbling around. When I think, clearly, if we had that issue with Valentino it’d be fixed in 80 seconds, ......"
