MotoGP » Crutchlow out, Iannone in at Ducati


Horsemen46: Well the largest Ducati Fail since Melandri. Only Cal knew exactly what he was walking into. From 'press release 1' on he has been a whiney little brat acting as if it was a great injustice the Duc didn't turn. I'm just shaking my head in udder disappointment. He could have played the hero that helped fix it, instead he walks away another victim of it.
Like your mate 46 walked away?

MotoGP » Crutchlow out, Iannone in at Ducati


If Cal is so rubbish, as you seem to be saying, why is there a ride for him in MotoGP? Ducati is a known career killer and all of the technical failures this year would have just confirmed to him that his best option was to go somewhere with a competitive bike. You, a nobody, dismiss his performances at Tech 3, but to come fifth in a championship when you are not one of the four bikes capable of winning a race shows he knows how to ride. I suppose you also think rossi was not a real racer because he could not ride around the Ducati's problems?

MotoGP » Red Bull increases Honda backing


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

MotoGP » Red Bull increases Honda backing


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.

MotoGP » Red Bull increases Honda backing


TalentFan: Just what MotoGP needs.... the richest team to have even more money. Of course I get that Red Bull want to be associated with a winning team. However I'd have much more respect for RB supporting a private team that needs a cash injection to help them along, rather than by getting further into bed with the richest Team that utterly dominates through its vast resources (including political power and money) already.
I am sure that your respect means alot to RB. however, maximising exposure (like any business) will be higher on their list of priorities. HRC will provide much greater exposure/podium time than a private team on second rate machinery.

MotoGP » Ducati Open or Factory? The wait continues…


Tetley:
jambop But let us not take our eye off the ball here this is about l Ducati seeing a chance to be competitive with a crap bike and hope that as they go along they will buy time and get it sorted. They could easily develop their bike in non race conditions with test riders just as Honda and Yamaha will have to.
Yes, they could. But no developments are allowed to Factory bikes during the season and that is why they chose to go Open. It was a sensible decision made entirely within the Rules.
Exactly. The open class is the only way, under the current sealed engine rules, that Ducati can effectively develop their bike over the season. They want to compete with Honda. Yam but if they aren't competitive by to end of pre-season.. too bad get used to losing? Moving to open class with a hope of improving is far better than staying as a factory where they know they are uncompetitive. It is a good thing for Motogp if there are three compe
