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.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez extends Honda MotoGP contract


Big surprise that MM got signed early (rolling my eyes). As for JL he knows good and well the only way he can bring it to MM is to be on a Honda. And he knows good and well that Honda can make the bike handle the way he wants right from the get go. On the other hand these riders are human with a desire to be "set for life" and not have to worry about contracts, so a move to Ducati for big bucks is not out of the question. Anyway the bike is improving. DP would be okay at Yamaha, a Rossi-ized M1 would suit DP's riding style nicely. Rossi bailed on Yamaha on principle. Them taking part of his pay for JL was something VR didn't have to swallow because he is "set for life". But he still wants to win so back to Yamaha he went. The good part of all this, we get some drama.
