MotoGP » Crutchlow explains details of Qatar crash


This is confusing. Is the 'sighting lap' the one after the grid is cleared and immediately before the race starts? If so, why did Cal switch his bike off? And, how could he do so metres after the guys (Hondas) ahead? He isn't allowed beyond his starting spot. If the 'sighting lap' is the one where they ride around the circuit to line up on the grid Cal still can't stop his bike metres after the guys (Hondas) in front because he doesn't go as far up the grid so that is impossible. If Cal simply switched his bike off after the guys (Hondas) who were up ahead of him on the grid and that threw the ECU off then the bike must work on time between points on the track and not distance (wheel revolutions) like Cal said last time. If it worked on distance Cal can't possibly switch the bike off (after the distance) the guys up front went because he hasn't gone as far up the grid on the sighting lap. I like Cal, I just don't understand him at times.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Bike didn't know where it was


I don't understand the part where Cal says the bike moved the distance from his starting spot to the finish line backwards on every lap as if this was cumulative. The spot Cal started from is always going to be the finish line of a lap for his bike. That doesn't change. However, it would make more sense to say the bike was always 20 metres, or however far Cal's spot was from the finish line, ahead of the calculation for each corner. Why didn't the computer guys program Cal's distance to the first corner for the first lap and then revert to standard distance when he crossed the finish line for the first time? Seems like an easy algorithm.
