MotoGP » ‘Rufea Team’ sweeps grand prix titles


biaggi:
brs: Superb article,Great job!! What a trio this is!!One of them absolutely dominated the championship,the other was very difficult to beat in moto2 and the other did a great job in the last race and won the championship with consistency. I think they will be absolutely tough to beat in motogp when they are fighting with each other.
Rabat will be just a mid-pack rider in motogp(if he ever arrives there) Alex will be just a good rider and will watch his brother fighting with Miller and Vinales for the championship.
Oh, man! Spoiler alert. I hate it when people spoil the races for me like that. Even if I could predict the future like that, I would still like to watch the races, or seasons, without knowing the outcome.

MotoGP » 50-year-old McWilliams talks grand prix return!


Greavesit:
TrueFan: I still remember him getting pole at Philip Island on the 400 Aprilia. He was the oldest man on the grid then too! Go Jeremy. You are a legend and a nutcase (in the best sense of the term). I hope it goes well, especially since they've dared to build a different chassis concept.
400?
Yes, they couldn't get the engine characteristics they wanted with 500cc. Apparently the pistons and the crank would have been too heavy, or something like that. Honda built a 500cc twin though.

MotoGP » Ducati software heading to Open ECU?


According to Motomatters, the new, big step, software upgrade file still had "Ducati Motor Holding" written on the code header, MM having failed to delete it from the file they received. So it looks like Ducati is going to continue developing their own software and, at the same time, will get rid of the five engines/20l of fuel nonsense, and all the teams will benefit from the new, free-of-charge, software. Of course, the guys who developed the software will be way more familiar with it than everyone else, and will have an advantage until the competition manages to wrap their heads around it. If that is not reducing costs for the average team, I don't know what is.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi impressed by Open, Espargaro


Why people still put Dorna and fuel limits on the same sentence is beyond me. It was Honda who pushed for the 20l limit, not Dorna. And, by the way, all bikes on the grid this year are running the same ECU. the difference is in the software. Open bikes run the spec software, provided by Magnetti Marelli, and the factories are free to write their own. The spec software, for example, does not have one different traction control setting for every part of the track. The riders have to choose the best compromise for every track, somewhat like the street riders have to do with their much more crude systems.

MotoGP » Ducati: 'No further plans' for Open MotoGP class


JackSMU Magnetti Marelli have eight different models of ECU. Some of them require an external data logger, some don't. The physical ECU does have an impact on what parameters you can use. With the spec ECU you're stuck with the features that have been implemented into it and it is not possible to alter the software itself. That's why I say parameters and not algorithms. Good luck trying to make an SRD-160 ECU do the same a Marvel4.5 does.
