MotoGP » MotoGP Factory 2 triggered by Ducati 'advantage'

We all know that Honda takes racing seriously and has dumped more money into their effort than all the others combined. Of course they are going to snivel if they see another team get a cost effective advantage. But this rule is not all that bad, you start getting REAL results, you get moved closer to the factory. The real advantages are still there, you get a soft tire(maybe good or bad), more fuel, almost twice as many engines, and we forget most importantly NO ban on testing. Yeah, it was knee jerk, but it no way blows Ducati or any other team out of the water. By the time they really start to get results, it shows they have made the improvements and don't need the whole advantage. Here is another thought, because it was a new rule the FACTORY teams should be allowed the chance to demote themselves to Factory2 and take advantage of some new rules and software.

MotoGP » Honda responds to Ducati’s Open decision

The biggest expense in MotoGP is firmware development...period. Millions and millions of dollar or euros are spent on it. And Honda has the bucks to do just that. The spec firmware is going to get upgrades like nobodies business because all the teams are going to give feedback. And the budget that normally went into firmware can now be redirected at the motor, frame, gearbox etc. The cool part is all the upgrades come at no cost to the teams. And as we can all see from the test times the firmware isn't so bad at the moment, and it will only get better. I want to see loose motorcycles where they are all backing it in again.

MotoGP » Rossi takes top spot with Pedrosa in Malaysia

ProfessorX: Sorry TedG, it has to do with the new bike and the new tires, thats about it. if you think he is just now getting to speed because his crew chief knows how to look at data you are sorely mistaken. Yamaha have been rocking the TC hard since 2008. You can thank Bridgestone for Rossi's new performance, and hes complaining about the tires because he wants people to think hes in the same boat as Lorenzo, and hes not :)
I don't agree about the data, BUT I absolutely agree about the tires. Anyone who has watched Rossi from the days of the 500s knows that he knows how to ride a bike with a "loose" rear wheel. Just a matter of getting used to it again.

MotoGP » Official: Ducati goes Open class for MotoGP 2014

What people are missing is that the software (actually the proper term is firmware) is going to get better and better. There are all these teams giving feedback, and when writing software it is very important to know what needs fixing or improving, so they can make it better. Pretty soon it will be almost as good as the factory software and the tables will turn. And Ducati is already providing code for the ECU. Go read up, it is reported that the new upgrade source code still has Ducati's headers on it.
