MotoGP » Herve Poncharal (IRTA) - Q&A

One thing I'm looking forward to seeing is how the Espargaro brothers will compete. Pol will start the year with a fast bike but not the experience needed to use it to its potential and Aleix has the experience but not the bike, yet. As one gains experience, the other has his bike improved. I guess Tech3 will be testing that spec software, and a bigger fuel tank, very soon.

MotoGP » Martin Raines (MotoGP stats) - Q&A

It's interesting how people talk about weight limits putting smaller riders at a disadvantage because heavier guys like Rossi can shift more weight around but they conveniently forget the aerodynamic disadvantage taller riders face. To compensate for 2% more weight you need 2% more power, but to compensate for 2% more drag you need 4% more power at the same speed. Combined weight limits remove one of the disadvantages bigger riders have but they still suffer on the straights. Just ask Scott Redding, or Rossi, for that matter.

MotoGP » Hayden: Electronics key to progress

HRC said earlier in the year they were testing the production bike with the control ECU and software. I assume the bikes were delivered just with a bare bones setting, for the teams to go their own way. I don't think they would have delivered them with Stoner's settings, ported from his prototype and fine-tuned by Gabarrini's team. Edwards said about his bike that Yamaha designed a basic software package and slapped it into the leased package, but that what Forward had previously was much better.
