MotoGP » Moto3 Indianapolis - Warm-up Results


9times: This is ridiculous, that talentless vasquez won the race, f***g ridiculous.
Since you started posting (last Tuesday), you wrote about Miller "An over-hyped rider, he is riding that superior KTM still gets his but kicked by guys on inferior rides. Fenati, Bastianini, Vinales...etc Sure Miller is a decent Moto3 rider, but he is on the top of the sheet only because of his rider." and then later "Miller and Fenati stand no chance against Hondas. Both are definitely the most talented in Moto3. " All a bit contrary really. And a bit troll-like

Stylo: Let's get that minimum bike and rider weight combo implemented. Defies logic that it doesn't exist but you have fuel limit. Might close up the racing a bit more.
strongly agree!!! rider with less weight use less fuel accelerate harder and use less tire...
...and have more trouble muscling the bike around tight sections. That is why Redding is doing so well. It doesn't explain why fatty old Rossi has been doing better than Pedrosa over the season though....
Rossi doing better than Pedrosa? Last time I checked Pedrosa was leading Rossi in the championship. There is also a therory that lighter riders can have more issues with grip than heavier riders.
And for how long has Pedrosa been ahead of Rossi? All season??? Rossi is nearly 50% heavier than Pedrosa but has beaten him 5 times in 9 races which suggests weight is not much of an issue.

MotoGP » Dovizioso credits Marquez’s crazy lines


Moto89: @ mrfill: Sorry but Motogp bikes aren't Formula 1 cars. They don't rely on downforce and aerodynamics for their cornering speeds, so there isn't the dirty air coming off the rider in front to seriously upset the rider following behind. There are no real disadvantages for the following rider but huge advantages for them to be gained. Following fast riders shows the slower rider what lines to take to get a significantly faster laptime( hence why Dovi himself even states that Marc's crazy lines help him achieve the laptime) that the slower rider just wouldn't be able to achieve on their own. .
It's not dirty air, but you can't slipstream (get towed) around a corner because the hole in the air keeps shifting location. Taking the same line as a front runner is not being towed - it is learning from others. All the riders are trying to find Marquez's secrets. Dovi found some 'crazy' lines and benefited on the tight section, after which he could slipstream do

R6Ryder: I said this before. Some guys rely on tows in every session. Some riders almost never use tows (mm, VR, DP, JL,) then you have Iannone , dovi, bradl, Bautista, and the entire bottom 5 who constantly do it. Nobody will let rossi or mm follow. And Rossi is such a nice guy I've seen him pull iannone around so many times and suddenly iannone does a lap .5 faster than without the tow. It's annoying. But its part of the game. IMO they should send riders out 15 sec apart. In Q1 and Q2. That way the guys who DESERVE the front row land on the front row.
22 riders at 15 seconds apart is 5 minutes 15 seconds from first to last. A lap was taking 1 min 32ish. There's a bit of an overlap...

VKal: It’ll be good for the show for a non-Honda or Yamaha bike to win. But as a manufacturer, it clearly shows how much Ducati lags in the development area behind the top Japanese marks. Ducati has financial backings of Audi. As a bike user like ourselves, how do we read into this? The rules are changed to enable others like Ducati to win but even then they can’t. You’d expect limits like engine quantity with no mods and fuel by now should have made Honda and Yamaha to get poorer results but it hasn’t happened. Yamaha is showing some effects of the 20 L fuel limit.
Indeed, Ducati were a long way behind but now they are not quite so much of a long way behind. That's progress. It's only been 9 races and one of the Duc riders has given up and signed elsewhere. By the time 2016 is here, they should be much nearer to HonYam. Suzuki will also have had a year of race development and, hopefully, all 4 manufacturers will be competitive. It seems likely that Aprilia w

9times: That Vasquez has a whooping 14kph advantage over the rest of the guys. I can still remember when Fenati beaten him every single lap just to lose it to the speed of his Honda. Totally unfair for guys like Fenati.
... and Miller, of course, who is also on a KTM, like Fenati, but who has managed to beat Efren at most races. In fact, Efren has been beaten at every race by someone, so what happened?
