MotoGP » German MotoGP, Sachsenring - Free practice (2)


@MrQwerty, I know why he does well on LH tracks. I used to race on some of those same tracks. They were dirt (or concrete)and they were all left hand tracks. Actually aside from what the called a TT (scrambles which only had one right turn and a jump) they only had left hand turns. And you backed in the rear going in and hammered it sideways going out. And it's called Flat Tracking!!!

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Don’t use me as an example


Even though Lorenzo had a clean break that was relatively easy to fix. He came back too early IMHO for the simple reason that there would be too much pain that early, not only from the fall, the broken bone, but mostly from the wound from the surgery. That means pain medication which dulls your senses, and if there was not pain medication the actual pain hampers your concentration. Either way it make the rider a potential hazard. Today though, was most likely the pressure to go fast in practice, more than being distracted by pain.

MotoGP » Red flag after Lorenzo fall in FP2


What we are seeing is a result of the new qualifying format. Instead of being able to work up to a fast lap, they have to come up with fast laps almost instantly. We will be seeing more and more of this as they try to qualify. Practice is to get the bike set up, but now the times are being counted in practice making for hasty decisions and we are seeing the aftermath. Practice should be practice, don't go for a hot lap until the bike is ready.

MotoGP » Dovizioso switches to 'new' Ducati


We can talk about the compounds of the tires all we want, but in truth the carcass of the tire is the determining factor in how it works with the bike. As the carcass gets stiffer, the harder it is to get heat into the tire, but the tire wears better, but alas the contact patch shrinks. As the carcass gets softer, the contact patch grows, the heat rises (more internal friction) but the tire breaks down quicker. And you lose feeling in the front end(ala Ducati).

MotoGP » Rossi rides victory high to Sachsenring


If Rossi has his favorite weapon back things are going to get interesting. First the top guys don't like a battle and like to run away. When their pit board shows Rossi closing it messes with their mind. Second when Rossi follows and starts sticking a wheel in there just asking for a battle it has a tendency to un-nerve almost anyone. He still will have problems in qualifying and probably will have to play catch up, But that makes for the best racing.
