MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Corrado Cecchinelli (MotoGP DoT) - Q&A

Kraven: "You remember when they decided to switch from 500cc two-stroke to 1000cc four-stroke, there were reputable riders saying 'these bikes are **** and will never be as fast as a 500 two-stroke'." Yes, we remember a certain Valentino Rossi saying that and wanting to stay on the old NSR. If only they'd let him...
They ran NSR/YZRs in the first year of the 990's and they got beat . go check the MotoGP 2002 season stats on wiki Barros rode Honda NSR500 from race 1 to 12 and Honda RC211V from race 13 to 16, he won 2 races after switching

MotoGP » ‘Tight schedule’ for new Aprilia

Blazin: Their last ART based racing bike had its roots in the road-going Aprilia Superbike engine, which won the World SBK championship quite a few times. The MotoGP category allows prototype engines & Aprilia are taking advantage of the rules to reduce "engine weight" by 10Kg, from an engine that wasn't a porker to start off with! The engineers at Aprilia are innovative & had the first pneumatic valved engine, a straight triple, in MotoGP racing. That engine revved & screamed like a banshee. Expect Aprilia to improve during the course of the season & some top 10 finishes later in the season.
They also had Gigi Dall'Igna then, they don't now. he was the biggest driving force at Aprillia

MotoGP » No ‘adaptive strategies’ for single ECU

GlazingVegas: In my opinion I don't think we (the fans) will see much of a difference on track. By the 3rd race the electronics won't be as big a topic for conversation because they won't factor in all that much . It's still a very advanced system . I will be surprised if we don't see any race time records being broken this year. These guys always move forward no matter what it seems.
As the old saying goes The cream always rises

MotoGP » No ‘adaptive strategies’ for single ECU

ElbowDown93: The factory Yamah and Honda boys had ECUs to help them clock faster laps or even lap records ...with that gone it'll be interesting to see how they fare agianst others towards the later stages of a race.... tyre management will be an important factor then i think..
well the yams went well enough at the test as far as laptimes so it wont be long b4 they get there head around it

MotoGP » No ‘adaptive strategies’ for single ECU

Codger: ZeFrenchAngle......You have a point there. Did you miss the post above where somebody listed Rossi as underrated ? He obviously missed the fact that, since he came back to Yamaha, he has finished 4th, 2nd, and 2nd in the World Championship. While doing that he amassed a very respectable 857 points. Not bad statistics for somebody who is 'underrated' , don't you think ? I just like to get facts right sometimes ....
He said rossi was overrated lol which is still wrong
