MotoGP » Dovizioso fears Yamaha hopes scuppered by Rossi

CRT and "Factory Spec electronics" is what is killing MotoGP. The Satellite teams cannot compete with Factory spec bikes. It's not the engine or chassis, it's how finely tuned the FACTORY electronics are. The FACTORY can dial in their #1 riders bike to out perform any other factory or satellite bike. In summation, MotoGP is dead as long as FACTORY SPEC ELECTRONICS are allowed. CRT cannot compete with FACTORY ELECTRONICS. Satellite teams cannot compete with FACTORY ELECTRONICS. In other words, we will NEVER have a decent MotoGP race when Lorenzo and Pedrosa get the best FACTORY electronics and everyone else's bike is "tuned down".

MotoGP » Rookie Bradl scales order to sixth overall

You guys need to understand this: The FACTORY sets the electronics packages and can fine tune the electronics to get whatever performance for each rider as they want to give them. NO RIDER, FOR NOW ON IN GP on a SATELLITE bike is EVER, EVER, EVER going to beat a FACTORY bike. The Factory will not allow it. This isn't 500CC or 990CC era when electronics were simplified and much less customized. Regardless if the engine and chassis is the same, ELECTRONICS are what determines who makes the most HP, the best traction control, etc. This is why Crutchlow and Dovisoso want FACTORY rides. They want to fight for wins and they may, but they will not beat the #1 rider on any factory team as long as the FACTORY can fine tune the electronics any way they want go. Get ride of the customized electronics and let the BEST RIDER win.

MotoGP » Hayden flies Ducati flag, overtakes Rossi overall

@Schoony59 In all fairness, Nicky has always been relegated as a #2 rider. He came into MotoGP as Valentino's #2 rider. Then #2 to Barros. Then #2 to Biaggi. Then #2 to Pedrosa. Then #2 to Stoner. See the pattern?! And keep in mind the factory and techs can set up the electronics any way they want to, in addition to chassis/engine upgrades. Basically, it means WHOEVER the factory wants to succeed will succeed and the rest are left trying to do the best they can with whatever they give them (this is why Satellite teams can't compete now like they used to in the 990 days). Back then electronics were simple and much less customizable. Nicky can't do better than 6th without the FACTORY backing him 100%.

MotoGP » POLL: Valentino Rossi - Ducati or Yamaha?

"This is the team that made Casey Stoner want to quit Motogp." No, CRT made Stoner want to quit GP. Who wants to race in a "Le Mans" type of circuit where you have slow, un-refined bikes getting in the way of the fastest, most refined bikes on the planet?! I don't blame Stoner. MotoGP is turning into a farce because of CRT. This is prototype racing, not "off the shelf" racing.

MotoGP » Hayden flies Ducati flag, overtakes Rossi overall

@Schoony59 I don't think Hayden was even offered a Tech 3 ride. Herve even said he wanted someone else. Ducati only signed Hayden because they were not sure about Rossi. Nobody wants the guy who has won a MotoGP title, which I find very ironic. No, he hasn't won a ton of races but when the factory tabs you "#2" constantly and you never receive the support the #1 rider gets, I expect nothing less. Kenlucky is just an insecure worm with nothing better to do with his time than to bash riders who have accomplished things that his small little pea-brain never will.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 'Hard to concentrate' for poor positions

"Brian I agree that there should be a standard ECU on the bikes. I'd go a step forward and ban all Traction Control and rider aids. It's working in BSB and I'm sure that WSB will probably the next series to adopt TC ban. It would be nice for Motogp to do the same with a std ECU and no TC. This with a ceiling on RPM should help make the series more interesting." But Honda and Yamaha will never accept a Satellite team beating the factory so they'll never agree to that. Wonder how they got away with that in Formula 1?!

MotoGP » Hayden flies Ducati flag, overtakes Rossi overall

"Hayden is a decent guy and a decent rider but he isn't a top level rider not even the year he won the championship through attrition." Oh really?! Are you counting Pedrosa "spearing" Hayden while he was clearly in a hunt for the title? Are you counting the terri-bad clutch problems? Are you counting the fact Hayden wasn't the #1 rider at Honda? That he was "testing" parts for Pedrobot (who has YET to win a title for Honda). Hayden came to GP straight from an AMA title and WON a MotoGP title within 3 years. Call it attrition if you want, but Hayden had as much of an issue with his bike as Rossi did, it was just that when everything was on the line, Hayden had the b*lls to win it all while Rossi tossed his chances away. At lets be straight, Hayden was WELL AHEAD of Rossi when Rossi binned it. Is he an alien? No. Is he fast? Yes -- and the hardest worker in GP, great teammate and doesn't back-talk the company that writes his checks (SMART!).
