MotoGP » Red Bull increases Honda backing


TedG:
RSMick: Show us the evidence then Mr G
That would take the form of the last 2 riders that jumped on the Repsol Honda and ran away with the championship. Pretty good evidence.
if the rider was any random monkey from the population, then it might be considered evidenced, depending if the control variables are adequately modelled. If the two riders are some of the most talented and successful riders in MotoGP's recent history, then, NO it is not evidenced. EDIT by CRASH.NET: Poster attack removed.

MotoGP » Moto3: Miller marks himself ‘five out of ten’


Nikeros: I'm glad Miller is in Moto3. Until he arrived on the scene there was no one in the class that I disliked. A viewer needs a rider to scream at and scorn. Thanks for filling the bill so completely, Jacky.
Why, exactly? Let me guess... because he is not spanish or italian? And who are you, a nobody, to pour scorn on a rider leading a world championship?

Ausrossi: V4 et al, actually I am Australian and could not stand Stoner, spoilt brat as far as I was concerned and have always felt that while an amazing rider some of his prowess stems from being in the right place at the right time. As for Miller sorry different kettle of fish, no whingeing just yeah I stuffed few races and so I mark myself down. Plus while not a media darling certainly knows that simply refusing to deal with the media is going to win you no friends.
How was Stoner a spoilt brat? Everything he was given was because he had talent. Fine, you don't like him because he beat Rossi head to head despite spending the majority of time on that crap Ducati, but to say that he is spoilt is more an indication about your fanboi character than of Stoner being given things he did not deserve.

Peter Light: Back on the Redbull thing. I would love to know how much they spend on sponsorship in all sports across the world. With 2 F1 teams, just about every extreme sport in the world and the massive number of sportsmen and women with personnal sponsorship it muct be hunderds of millions. Anyone know a rough figure?
I was watching a BBC doco , 'Secrets of the superbrands' or something like that and they had an ex senior exec from Red Bull UK who said they put 70% of revenue back into marketing. So, truckloads then.

RSMick: More waffle? I'm no expert but I think all the seamless gearbox does is select the next gear before disengaging the previous, it is still a manual operation. It is an innovation that will become common place, all Honda do as a brilliant engineering company is when a rule is put in place find a way to achieve the result with an alternative. You are like the idiots in 2007 that wanted the Ducati banning because it found a way to get the best out of its limited fuel and found a rider that could exploit it. What do you want Dorna to do predict what Honda are going to come up with next and ban it? Honda were the only ones against single ECU and now spec code and Dorna stuck to it. Honda wouldn't do as Dorna asked so they created CRT, next thing Honda back down. Have you ever looked at other manufacturers bikes and seeing what they achieve? Like Yamaha were the first to play with the ignition on a 4t to soften the engine braking rather than just a slipper clutch. [\bl

TalentFan: @ RSMick Now the single clutch seamless gearbox exists (and it exists purely to circumvent a rule trying to keep automated gearboxes out of motorcycle racing) then Dorna should do one of two things... 1. Remove the ban on dual clutch seamless. At least then a more affordable solution is available to private teams, or 2. Ban the single clutch seamless so they have to go back to changing gear manually (as the original rule intended, and this would be my preference as it means putting one more small piece under the riders skill-set instead of a computer). Whatever, the single clutch seamless is a development dead-end, as dual clutch does the job far easier and cheaper already - so mass adoption is never going to make it much cheaper to make, and the massive R&D cost is never going to be recouped through sufficient gearbox sales. This gearbox was an expensive work-around to enable honda to get around a rule that restricted them from gaining an expensive advan

ProfessorX: RSMick is the biggest apologist for what sucks in MotoGP, he/she constantly rails against getting rid of traction control (the manufacturers preferred method for controlling the pecking order) and constantly says that its fair for everyone to be on the same tire, even if that same tire is more suitable for a particular rider/bike. I wouldn't bother with that person, it probably is part of the traveling circus, making some sort of living off of the deception that is a poor excuse for an entertainment venue. Honda & Repsol are the biggest in the business, Yamaha can't even get a title sponsor unless Rossi the #2 is helping them out. Anyways I could care less, none of those bike are available for consumers, and the show is an obvious fraud given that Dani was pretty much riding a gimped bike last year, bridgestone has an agenda, and the commentators are bought and paid for. I just hope that through all the ignorance that no more pilots die as a result of the chara

V4Poweeeer: Kawasaki was reported to have a motogp budget of 30-40mil euro a year. When Ezpeleta was ranting on about the caps he stated Honda spends also 40 mil euros a year. I'm yet to see any indication of F1 proportions of budgets to race in motogp Honda couldn't even find the funds to keep Dovi in the side as their budget was pulled out from under them not spent on bike development but reduced on a whole. Ducati as well isn't exactly on a shoestring budget either afterall they could easily afford to pay Rossi one of the biggest salaries without cutting costs anywhere else in the operation.
The Ducati fiasco just goes to show that there are many other factors involved in winning other than the size of the budget.
