MotoGP » Crutchlow loathe to run soft tyre 'out of principle'


Say what you will but his comments put Ducati in the limelight. Sit silent and there is no publicity. Good or bad. Next year if the bike works it will be perceived as a much bigger success than if nothing was said about it. Ducati is newly owned and a competitive bike will show that the new owners have the smarts. I have to believe they tell him to be brutally honest and are loving every minute of it.

MotoGP » Pol Espargaro inspired by past Marquez battles


The biggest difference is the fuel. The company with the most money can extract the most out of what fuel is available. This is why the non factory teams close the gap in practice. They just run full power. Come the race where they have to cut back the gap grows. Then add in the seamless gearbox, advanced firmware, huge data accumulation, and again the deepest pockets come out ahead. Even the extra allowance for open bikes is not enough to bridge the technology gap. Technology is leaving the non factory bikes behind. Technology is expensive and firmware is the biggest ticket item of them all.

MotoGP » Lorenzo, Rossi chart Yamaha braking and entry


KnowNothing:
TedG: And who says he can't develop a bike?
Asking for clutchless downshifts isn't really development, per se. Regardless, hopefully we continue to see development of the bike over the year, and although I don't mind MM wins, some great battles by JL and VR would be welcome viewing. Good stuff Crash, enjoy the rider comments on new and developing tech.
Sorry, I did a fly by. My sarcasm escaped you.

MotoGP » ‘Great emotion’ as Rossi returns to Mugello podium


SkyWilk:
MotoMarc: If they shut the electronic aids off Rossi would destroy them both.
Really? You are really bringing back the biggest excuse of them all once again? When Rossi was maybe the first rider to use extensive electronic aids in motoGP?...
Before you say anything more on this subject, suggest you look at some old videos of Rossi before the age of electronic intervention.

MotoGP » Biggest brakes allowed at all MotoGP circuits


People are missing the point, the problem is twofold with the smaller brakes. First and foremost the weigh and power are almost too much for the system to handle, second when pushed hard they get too hot and fade. This most likely will help the fading big time. Which means the heavier riders can hang in there longer and use the brakes hard the whole race, instead of having to back off of them.

MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo: 'It happens'


JL has a pile of problems to overcome. He has been deprived of his most effective weapons. Being able jump out at the start and run away and his high corner speed. And to top it all off, he knows good and well that the Honda is a better bike in many areas. First and foremost, fuel management. The gearbox is just a tad better, the bike has proven easier to set up for different conditions, just to name a few. JL also seems to need all the ducks lined up for him to do his thing. Too many bugs, too many things aren't just to his liking. BUT he is a hard worker and a great rider, which means he will adapt, the Yamaha will get better, and he will be a force to be reckoned with. I am not a fan of his, but he is usually a cool headed and deliberate rider, so I for one won't count him out.
