MotoGP » Lorenzo basks in victory after ‘one of hardest races’


Its great to see that both JL and VR are now on good terms, respecting each other. JL needs VR to push him forward, he is on his best form since Rossi came back to Yamaha and that is partly because he has a top notch teammate pushing him to the limits. Rossi needs JL as the benchmark to go faster as he plays catch up, which is what Rossi is so good at given the number of times he wins from the last few laps. And in the process, both riders are pushed to their max hence there is no room for complacency nor overconfidence. Yamaha has the team to beat now.

MotoGP » Marquez tempted by 2014 chassis switch


Correct chassis tweaks, advanced braking, top notch ohlins are all that is needed. For example Multi click mechanized rear brakes (M1) vs Spring rear brakes (RCV) - how many know that difference outside of the paddock? Even lesser know the advantages. They are looking at improving miliseconds per lap sector, piece it together for a good lap and repeat the process whilst managing tyre. They arent trying to get 2-3 seconds per lap.

titfortat: I think without all the electronics and with tyres that aren't so good like 10+ years ago, Rossi would be king since he can just find grip where others can't. I would love to see a Moto GP before Rossi retires where ABS and TC and all that crap is banned like what they did with F1.
Rossi highsided quite alot from riding the Aprilia 250 right up to the championship winning NSR500 at that time. He is good, but he too is bound by the same laws of physics. Traction control is for safety of riders. The best of that 500cc era, Doohan himself, has loads of injuries from highsides. Do not compare motogp to F1. There is no highside in F1. If traction control adds to the advantage of riders, then we have no back markers in motogp.

Robert Danley: While everyone seems to be concentrating on how badly wrong Honda have got it, I think they are missing the real point. Yamaha have massively improved their bike this year. I suspect that the Honda probably isn't really any worse than last year, it's just that the Yamaha is so much better, Marquez has to ride closer to the edge of the performance envelope to attempt to keep up, with predictable results.
Agreed 100%
