MotoGP » Pol Espargaro - Q&A


TalentFan: What learning curve? MM was on the pace from day 1. That screams sorted data solutions, electronic strategies and rider aids to me. A factory Honda with Terabytes of data acquired from CS & DP & massive resources to make use of it. MM had no learning curve, his setup was uploaded so he just had to ride it.
Data solutions don't ride the bike, and they, alone, do not make one egg a dozen (or rather, account for everything a rider does on the bike). The data solutions/electronics are just ONE piece of a very large puzzle. Some of the things you say have merit, but you tend to discount anything involving the skill of the rider himself.

MotoGP » MotoGP stars discuss Jack Miller deal


dickiebird: It's got two wheels, a pair of bars, a chassis, an engine, and a saddle and foot pegs, just like his moto 3 bike They might work a bit different to his present bike, but the jump from his push bike to moto 3 was far greater than this, so, no worries mate. Go for it Jack.
You don't ride motorcycles do you? That's like saying a person who is used to tracking a Honda Civic can jump into an F82 M4 and just "slot right on in" as if there's not a distinct difference in the capabilities and adjustment needed to not end up wrapped around a pole.

MotoGP » Lorenzo unfazed by Honda record


Yearby23:
cossiegaz: If it's a Yamaha win it'll be a Rossi win.
I like how Rossi's won some people are going to discount Jorge forever now. He's not exactly Biaggi or Gibernau is he?
Hey, it happened/happens to Rossi (..you know, the "he's tired", "he's too old", "he'll never win again", etc. type comments), so why can't it happen to Lorenzo too? :) It's silly either way you slice it, but no real fan takes those comments seriously anyway.

MotoGP » Pol Espargaro - Q&A


TalentFan: Want to solve all the who is best rows? Simple - give em all a level playing field and let em duke it out as it should be.
Ummm, didn't we already do that in Moto2 and in 125cc? He didn't bring the title home in any season. Of course now you (or another Crash.net) member will say that so-&-so had a better this and a better that rather than saying so-&-so is just a better rider. Espargaro, Marquez, Bradl, Luthi, Kallio, Rabat, etc. ALL came ahead of Smith.

MotoGP » Ducati confirms 'GP14.2' debut


NineTimes: For those who have passed the secondary education: Spend 15 min to find out how much the HRC spend annually. The last figure I checked myself, HRC's annual budget was around 500 million euros (Nearly $1bn), Yamaha around 350 million euros and Ducati 30 million euros. Or if you can't spend 15 min (Just like you didn't spend 15 time to graduate), then I can give you the source of it. @TalentFan, I think the giggle was more for your lack of knowledge.
Link it! Does it specify where that $1bn is allocated (Moto3, Moto2, satellite bikes, etc. etc.)? I just can't see it being solely allocated for MotoGP, or at least not MM and DP and the GP race team.

MotoGP » Ducati confirms 'GP14.2' debut


I agree with the sentiment that Ducati is finally listening....like, REALLY listening. To have a high profile rider like VR46 "fail" (and I use that term loosely based on what we know he's capable of) on your bike sends a shockwave through the paddock. Dovi didn't podium at all his first year on the bike....yet another shockwave since that was the first time that had ever happened. Gigi comes in and finally the Italians get their heads out of the sand and stop being so stubborn. If Gigi's bike does good, super props to them.
