MotoGP » Rossi braces for ‘great fight’ with Lorenzo


philholt101: Only Rossi fans believe this crap Rossi insisted on the wall down the garage so Jlo couldn't use his set up data remember Rossi threatens to leave Yamaha if they signed jlo
Actually, those of us who have been watching GP long enough know that the wall was there to protect tire data because they were using different manufacturers. Racing newbies disregard the facts. Yes, it is true that Rossi was unhappy with the sharing of data, but who wouldn't be. If you were the champ and you were forced to share your data with the rookie, you'd be upset too. Any normal competitive person would be. Pedrosa wasn't happy to share his data with Marquez either (and this was mentioned in articles), but he didn't throw as much of a fit about it because he wasn't the champ.

MotoGP » Smith: It’s difficult when your goals change


AndyR: Having raced for over 30 years both on the continent & the Isle of Man I can assure you the frame has as much influence to the bike as the engine in some cases more so,I've ridden plenty of slow bikes on which the frame has made up for the lack of outright grunt.
I didn't say that a frame didn't have influence over the bikes character. Obviously it does since it's part of the bike. My point was that a frame doesn't make an entire bike, and Pol is not subjected to updates not offered to Smith. Statements like that are incorrect and Herve has clarified and dismissed such accusations, but Crash.net experts continue to make false claims (or they simply don't pay attention to the Q&A articles).

MotoGP » Smith: It’s difficult when your goals change


AndyR: So if Pol's bike has a 2015 chassis its not a 2014 bike is it!!!! The point I was trying to make was that the new chassis probably responds to set up changes more positively which is why Yamaha's big two are using it. Maybe Smithy should wreck his then he'd get the later version if none of the earlier ones are available.
A chassis DOES NOT make a bike. It's merely a frame. Rossi and Lorenzo's bikes are completely different. The frame is likely what is causing Pol's set-up issues. Yamaha's big two are using it because.....drum roll please.......they always use the newest bike (just as the HRC guys always use the newest bike....the exception being Marquez using his 2014 frame ONE HIS 2015 BIKE this season). Smith should be careful what he asks for. He might end up like Crutchlow (remember when Crutchlow complained about not having the newer parts only to get them, and ride worse?).

MotoGP » Smith: It’s difficult when your goals change


Garcia: As Smith said: "there's some things that I'd like to try that Pol can try but there's no guarantee it'll be better. I can't worry about it because it's not something I can change, but it's nice to still be beating the guy that has been given everything.”
...and he was referring to the chassis, which we all knew Pol had. The difference is that some people look for conspiracies and others take things at face value. You being the former and me being the latter. With that said, Smith is riding considerably better this year than he rode last year, so I have nothing negative to say about him. He's doing the business.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: We need more testing


alanw5293:
Realist: I don't care what you say about Cal, I'd replace Redding on the factory RCV before I replaced Cal.
Every thread is an opportunity to get at shot at Redding..at least you're consistent but surely the tape must wearing thin the amount you play it.
Only threads where Redding's performance is relevant. In this thread, everybody is quick to toss out vitriol in Crutchlow's direction and mention that he has a myriad of excuses, but he's keeping the bike inside of the top 10 on a bad day, and he's on the podium on his best day. You can't say the same for Redding on the same bike. My response wasn't personal, it was from a business perspective. Crutchlow is the best RCV rider outside of the HRC guys.

MotoGP » Smith: It’s difficult when your goals change


Garcia: I hope Smith stays in Tech3, he's doing a great job while not getting the same updates as his team mate, also he seems a nice guy.
Pay attention! Q: But is it possible that the change of chassis disrupted Pol a bit? Herve Poncharal: No I don't think so and anyway the difference is almost nothing. It is terms of setting. Why Pol got something a bit different was he destroyed his two original chassis, so there were no more parts. At the moment Bradley is our best placed rider and if Yamaha's got to bring something new - and better - for our team it will be, minimum, for the two riders at the same time. For example, I read somewhere that Pol has got the new [slash cut] exhaust system because he is a Factory contracted rider and Bradley does not have it because he is not. Completely wrong. They both received it in Catalunya and Bradley said after FP1 'take it off, it is too loud'.

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Herve Poncharal (Tech 3) - Q&A


I'm bumping this article specifically for those who don't listen, and who spread misinformation. Herve Poncharal: No I don't think so and anyway the difference is almost nothing. It is terms of setting. Why Pol got something a bit different was he destroyed his two original chassis, so there were no more parts. At the moment Bradley is our best placed rider and if Yamaha's got to bring something new - and better - for our team it will be, minimum, for the two riders at the same time. For example, I read somewhere that Pol has got the new [slash cut] exhaust system because he is a Factory contracted rider and Bradley does not have it because he is not. Completely wrong. They both received it in Catalunya and Bradley said after FP1 'take it off, it is too loud'. We know in terms of performance it is exactly the same as the old exhaust. It is just very slightly lighter and when you crash there is not so much to damage. No difference really.
