MotoGP » Honda, Yamaha discuss Ducati advantages


It's been very messy with CRTs, open bikes, factory bikes, factory open bikes etc but at least motoGP is heading in the right direction. 2015 is another multi-class championship but come 2016 there will be one set of rules for all and there will be at least 2 new factory teams. Contrast this with F1 where the big 5 teams are locking out the others and doing their best to prevent any new teams from thriving. I believe that 2016 will see a winner come from other than the Honda/Yamaha factory teams. And that will be very good for the sport.

F1 » Caterham F1 makes 230 staff redundant


The only point of going to Abu Dhabi, having flogged off some old assets and raised £1.9m, is to return with a greater sum. By turning up will they qualify for some end of season pay out or appearance fee that Marussia miss out on? Anything above £10m and it will all have been worthwhile. If they come back empty handed having blown a couple of million on this junket though, what was the point?

MotoGP » Moto3: Vazquez returns with Kiefer Racing


@vilas46 It may be difficult to absorb facts, but my figures are not created in my head, they are the figures recorded at the track by the official timers. One bike may look faster but the speed gun does not lie. The biggest speed boost is by slipstreaming. Vasquez and McPhee are two of the smallest riders and slipstream particularly well, gaining anything up to 10kph. Put them on a KTM and the same thing would happen.. The Honda was a little faster, but not massively so and this is reflected in the results overall. Of the top 10 riders - 5 on KTM, 4 on Honda, 1 on Mahindra. I did watch the races and did see Efren win, but only twice out of 18 races.

MotoGP » Moto3: Vazquez returns with Kiefer Racing


NineTimes: That massive soeed advantage of the Honda last season couldn't do him any good. Machine cannot fill talent gap!
What massive speed advantage? While a Honda did achieve top speed in 14 out of 18 meetings, only twice was the advantage more than 4kph (Indy and Valencia) and was less than 2kph in 7 meetings.. The average difference over the season was 1.4kph or less than 1mph. Figures courtesy of motogp.com official timing. Less than 1mph is not exactly 'massive', is it? Any perceived 'massive' speed advantage is likely to be down to a rider slipstreaming better. Vasquez and McPhee being good examples.
