MotoGP » Dovizioso talks Ducati 20-second deficit


SoSlo: HAHAHAHA You really believe that Ducati weren't using the full 24 liters? that's when they were going good. Then they lost that consession and went down to 22 liters and guess what? they dropped down the order If you believe Ducati aren't running the MAX fuel allowed then you are gullible. besides WHY would Ducati elect to run open/factory2 class instead of full factory if NOT to take advantage of the concessions allowed ?!?!?
You can choose to believe what you want contrary to what GiGi and the Ducati riders have said. That's your prerogative. I take what they say at face value. They said that they didn't use the extra 2 liters. I'm in no position to refute nor confirm the statement, so I just take it as it comes. Even still, fuel isn't the source of their issues.

MotoGP » Smith keen to protect top satellite status


Don-R: Smith will be staying with Tech 3 next year, and it'll probably be announced at the Brit GP. However, it seems like that's only due to Alex Rins declining the ride. According to Rins' management (as reported on Speedweek), Lin Jarvis offered Smith's Tech 3 ride to Rins 3 times during the summer break but was turned down, Rins preferring another year in Moto2. No wonder Smith has been less than diplomatic about Yamaha just recently. He's obviously way down their list of priorities, and knows it.
Wow! Well there we have it. So much for the arguments about Smith impressing Yamaha. If Rins ponied up, Smith would be out of a ride.

MotoGP » Pedrosa sets sights on first win of 2015


madh4tt3r: Way to miss my ****en point... and add words in my mouth.. please learn to read.. I never said he cant win, I never said anything other than he is an amazing rider and can bag wins on his day but his size only helps him with speed which on these bikes he is lucky if he gets a couple of km/h out of it... if his size is not such an issue where are all these other small guys running up front, it clearly is only dani and that is a disadvantage if you cant see it then you are blind.
I didn't put words in your mouth. You said, "he is too small to man handle this bike"....which I refuted by mentioning his wins after the move to 1000cc. What does that mean? It means that he can handled the bike just fine. The "other" small guys lack the skill (and don't have the machinery), so that's why they are not up front. It's pretty easy to deduce, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to do so.

MotoGP » Pedrosa sets sights on first win of 2015


lux: The fact that are no other small guys at the pointy end isn't any final proof. You could also say "there are no guys with green hair on the podium, that means green hair is bad to win championships". I mean, you MIGHT be right that his height and weight is a major issue, but we have no final proof and the facts tell us that Pedrosa is a top race winner who has been a major title contender more than once.
Indeed.....thus, his height/weight doesn't seem to be a major issue at all. His inability to escape injury is however.

MotoGP » Dovizioso talks Ducati 20-second deficit


ampere:
lynx: Dovi gets pushed wide off the track by Crutchlow so essentially starts from the back of the grid, yet he still catches back up to Crutchlow.
Exactly. I wonder if the engineering culture Rossi aluded to remains the same at Ducati, in that they think the design is right despite the results? They were so hush-hush early on in the season during press conferences, interviews, when cameras were in the garage. I suppose, it was all about the fuel limit problems - but may be there was something else?
You pose a legitimate question. I would think that they learned their lesson, but one never knows the full story.
