MotoGP » Pits to victory for Marquez in Germany


TalentFan: Over 100 posts and only Codger on page 7 make the really important observation. That is that the top 4 super-computers (oh sorry - for you sensitive sheeple that'll be motorcycles) breezed through the field like the rest were on commuter bikes. Never mind MM, or Vale etc. THAT is the vitally important bit that most fans miss completely in their headlong rush to be to first to ram their heads up a top 4 riders crevice. Those who (even for totally the wrong reasons) get all defensive about MotoGP never delivering a boring race are a tuly correct. Because it's a travesty to even hint that it might be Racing. But it seems there are masses dumb enough for that not to be important. Don't worry Brain, Realist (and others with similarly hugely ironic usernames).. I'm not hanging around. There's no point.
Bye then. Don't forget to take the professor with you.

Since 2007 (excluding a single win for Dovi in 2010) only 4 riders per season have won races. Motogp hasn't been dull because of that. 2016 should bring closer racing with standard sofware. However, I expect Honda to spend the money saved on coding elsewhere (aero perhaps) to maintain some kind of gap. There again Ducati will have had 2 full seasons running the standard software in races and Suzuki may spring a surprise. My guess is that little will change in the pecking order though.

reinmacre: If you notice in the photo, the millisecond the front end is the least bit unweighted, the electronics kick in. Fly by wire. Don't get me wrong, the fastest guy on the best bike is winning and there's no denying MM93 is a generational talent. However, IMHO, electronics have nullified the skill component of throttle control and turned MotoGP into a snoozefest.
Yes, they're so good no-one ever has a high-side now. There is a limit, even with a lot of fancy gizmos, and if you go beyond that limit, you fall off. Marc gets closer to it than his team mate (the only valid comparison) on a regular basis.

ProfessorX: you have noticed that too :) remember at Valencia last year :) oh Dani is faster, gets with in a couple of meters, oh no, Dani is having problems with keeping a line ... Makes you wonder :) Dani has no chance, they would put up a board for him, if they are not doing that already. Dani is a team player though, he resigned for Repsol-Honda. MM will take Doohan's record, just like he will take almost all of the records courtesy of Honda and Bridgestone.
Sorry to hear about the memory problem. Bridgestone won't be in motogp after next season. Michelin will have to be included in this grand conspiracy. They'll get all shirty if they don't get a mention, you know :)

ar86: Yes I watch wsb, bsb and motogp too. I don't blame mm or another front guys, but in wsb laguna today, the tv show every battle including evo class. Motogp keep showing mm pedro parade all the time.
I saw the first race. After lap one, the front three remained static until the chequered flag. The motogp had a bit more action going on at the front (for a while anyway). Don't you enjoy just watching any of the top riders doing what they are good at - even if they are sometimes on their own?
