MotoGP » Smith shrugs off fall to be fastest Yamaha


Yearby23: Despite this, and his team mate being 11th, people will still hate on him. Good job though Bradders, he's adamant on being top satellite rider.
Guilty as charged. Blah blah blah. Same talk....again different race. OK a one lap wonder will get Mr.BS a great grid position but it has been down hill from there in almost all of his races. This guy has lucked out getting the tech3 ride and now we are seeing him for what he really is. A rider who cannot consistently put in fast laps. And that does not "cut the mustard" for a rider in the tech3 team. That seat is supposed to be for un-ans-comming riders not people who want to sell ice to the eskimos. Tech3... get rid of this pretender!!! About the only skill he has is ..... blah blah blah He talks the talk but has yet to walk the walk.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: My dream is to stay with Yamaha


In other words.... Honda I want more money or I stay at Yamaha. Fair enough too. Let´s see if Honda/Repsol responds with a juicy offer. After all, if Honda keeps producing a better bike than Yamaha a MM/JL team is a win/win formulae, especially considering VR is bound to drop off in a few years. Add to that no super star riders in moto2 and Honda/Repsol could destroy all commers for at least a few years. I guess it all hinges on what Yamaha has in the way of machinery to JL. Difficult though to believe that Honda is not going to back off from out bidding all other offers for the best ecu programmers...

MotoGP » Rossi to Marquez: Four wins is enough!


MM does have great talent. But lets not forget here that Dany is also beating the Yamaha´s. And most will agree that Dany is a solid rider but not in MM, VR or JL´s class. For me that is a huge indicator of how good the Honda is this year. Relatively speaking probably up there with the Honda that Doohan rode to 10 wins in a row in the late nineties. But certainly not on par with the advantage that Ago had with the MV (Honda pulled out of motogp and the rest is history). JL was still able to consistantly beat DP last year. This year DP is faster. One or two more corners and DP would have nailed Rossi in the last race. The Honda is a beast but that can change at any time during the season if Yamaha achieves just a 0.5% performance advantage. It´s that close but looking at the track times novices see it otherwise.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Better than it looks


shamarone: re: "Seems the Hondas start decently and take a few tweaks while the Yams take a frenzy of adjusting during practice and qualifying. Wonder why?" that's what I'm screaming. i don't think the Hondas are running software anymore...? i kid, but it's like they are running SKYNET...!? some kind of heuristic "auto adapting" algorithm. the damn bike's "self-aware" requiring no human intervention. pull it out the crate on Thursday, press a big green button that says "GO", sit back and sip tea.
Honda/Repsol has the biggest budget. So they can hire the best ecu programmers. And they can hire more than the other teams. They may even have multiple teams of programmers competing against each other to achieve the best setting for each entry, corner and exit. Of course it is better to have all these people hidden away from the camera like Yamaha. Wouldn't want to give the game away to the masses... The most critical element in motogp is now the ecu programmers, by a country mile. Put a top class rider on the bike with the best programming and you are sitting on the podium.

MotoGP » Marquez ‘comfortable’, Pedrosa ‘feeling good’


The question is... Will the dependency on ecu programmers be the downfall of motogp or will there be, in the future more top class ecu programmers to go around, thereby leveling the field? Even more interesting was a comment made to the effect that Honda´s programming is designed to "learn" (SKYNET). The comment was made in jest but it does sound interesting. However given the corporate secrecy and almost total lack of transparency in motpgp we may have to wait years to find out. I do think though that to a certain degree the ecu/software does learn. During a race it may learn from each corner and apply improved updated parameters for the same corner for the next race. Just a theory though. Or perhaps it gives the rider the option to apply the "improved parameters". Again just theory. Maybe we will have in the future quantum ecu´s which override the rider if it knows better. Even though I don't like all these electronics and software in motogp bike the components themselves are curious items.

I meant to say "for the same corner for the next lap..."
