MotoGP » Stoner expects evenly-matched Le Mans

Burgess has dismissed commentary that a supposedly radical seamless shift Honda gearbox is an advantage that will guarantee race wins. Stoner will do that all by himself. "It is not rocket science," "Honda haven't done anything special except hire a new rider (Stoner)," Burgess said. "And I don't understand the fuss on the Honda gearbox -- it is totally standard engineering these days"

MotoGP » Stoner expects evenly-matched Le Mans

TedG, Before you go plucking random BS out of thin air about the Honda gearbox. Here's what a real expert has. Jeremy Burgess "All this talk about a seamless shift gearbox will not be the reason Honda win races. I can tell you that you would be a mug to think that the Yamaha M1 gearbox is not something special. "If anyone thinks Honda now have cutting-edge technology, it might be because they have come from a long way behind. "Yamaha have a very smooth, advanced system. I know how it works and I've also been privy to the inside of some of the trick F1 gearboxes with the top teams. "Seamless shifting is not an engineering marvel, it is not rocket science. You might save one hundredth of a second, and that's only on an upshift. For sure it's a nice feeling for the rider to have those shifts but it's not the difference everyone is rabbiting on about."

MotoGP » Stoner surprised by Jerez victory

Incredible poise and race craft by Stoner. He saved something special for the final stages. On the final lap, Lorenzo looked pedestrian. Some of these guys may rue running the soft front, however so did Stoner - and that fact that Stoner's bike is chattering, lack corner speed and he's having arm pump doesn't look too good for Lorenzo. Lorenzo's best hope is to take advantage of the arm pump problem and Honda's problem with the tyres and corner entry - because if by mid season the bike is sorted, it'll be all over. Regardless of how fast Lorenzo is, there is no way he can match Stoner's pace.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare

David Emmett motomatters on Twitter. "It's hard to accept that your bitterest rival could ride the bike that you can't. Have to blame it on something." "..What is true about the rumors circulating that Rossi will join the coca cola Yamaha next season??? David Emmett= None. It is not true" "Hope is why they Rossi fans persist with the YamahaRossi thing. I don't believe it's true. Yam will never give Rossi a bike." On that note, neither will Honda ever give Rossi a bike. He is doomed in MotoGP. His only escape is 4wheel racing.
