MotoGP » Suzuki struggles, eager for test, seamless ‘soon’

They are using the standard ECU and standard software. Not a lot of scope to improve the electronics. I have been saying that HRC would be likely to be sniffing after Maverick once Dani decides to hang up his boots and no earlier. However, he is doing a great job at Suzuki and it is certainly not wasting his time. He is learning how to live in a factory team and that is something not usually granted to rookies.

F1 » German GP survival hinges on 2016 ‘full house’

So now its the fans fault for not turning up. And why don't they turn up? Perhaps addressing that question is better than blackmailing the current visitors, but that is not the way in F1 now. The current business model does not allow the circuit owners much scope and removes much of the income to help the poor of CVC and other worthy causes. The value of the TV rights is dropping with the declining audiences and if the value to sponsors falls, they too will disappear. And then what will you do, Mister E? It is 2015, not 2005 and yet in Bernie's mind nothing in the world has changed.

MotoGP » MotoGP software freeze underway

titfortat: They didn't need all these electronics in the past and were just fine, it just means they cannot ride on rails like they're doing today. As for F1 being boring, you can thank the new engines for that, nothing to do with them getting rid of the electronics aids. With the electronics gone the skills cap suddenly increases and it becomes much more about the rider and not the bike. Marq wouldn't be able to ride the way he does today without them, you'd have to be smooth like lorenzo.
Marc rode the same way on a moto2 bike which has relatively few electronic gizmos. And he won. And even Rossi has admitted to altering his riding style to emulate Marquez. And he is now winning.

MotoGP » PICS: Tito Rabat taken out at final turn

Pakundo: I agree Sasha. I've always thought that Tito has had an unfair advantage ,where he and his team go to Almeria and race everyday,whereas no one else seems not to be allowed to do. He's already 26, i don't think he will get a competitive bike in Motogp. He did do a dirty move on Morbi before the final corner ,karma
I think you'll find that is his personal machine. If you have the money you too could take your bike to a track everyday, as could any of the riders.

MotoGP » Honda 'close to a solution' says Marquez

mrfill: There are corners to consider and you need strength to muscle these beasts around. A 51kg 5foot not much rider is unlikely to have the strength of a 67kg 6footer. Put it this way, would you prefer to be punched by Pedrosa or Redding?
wel i would not want to carry another 10 15 kg if thats what you mean. and i dont want to get punshed by mm. and redding is way to big and to heavy to come close to dp. euh....what were you saying??
Simple. Pedrosa has a bit of a weight advantage and a massive strength disadvantage. He doesn't have the weight to wrestle the bike as well as the beefcakes. Compelling him to carry 27kg ballast (to match Redding) is absurd

MotoGP » Honda 'close to a solution' says Marquez

shakennstirred: its not about the top speed with the lighter rider. its how it gets there, the lighter rider will get to the bikes top speed faster than a guy on the same bike but is heavier its power to weight ratio
