MotoGP » MotoGP Qatar - Warm-up Results


Lancsmann: Interesting in both the tec3 yams have a higher top speed than the works bikes. With smith matching the Honda's. Maybe that fancy gearbox?
It probably has more to do with rear suspension balance or mid corner stability. Top speed has much more to do with traction through the last corner than outright engine or gearbox performance - although they clearly have a significant contribution too...Much of Stoner's advantage in the straights was due to his mid-corner throttle control. Also, we don't know what Rossi and Lorenzo were actually working on...they might have been looking for brake tweaks. The race is the only timing that counts...

MotoGP » Ninth place Rossi ‘a lot more satisfied’


Joeski:
separated: Do people even bother to read the rules? Honda and Yamaha could have chosen to go Open like Ducati, but they chose not to. ...
Actually, I used to argue the same point, that would make us both wrong!!!! Honda could not go Open class nor Yamaha because they had wins in the 2013 season. Only factory bikes without a win in the previous 2013 (prior to 2014) season could qualify for open concessions. ...
Not true. Open Class was available to all, but Dorna didn't expect any factory teams to take the option - since the factories had all blocked the imposition of control software. The win restrictions etc that you refer to were introduced after Ducati had (a) opted to join the Open Class, and (b) made their factory software available to Magneti Marelli / Dorna for inclusion in the control Software... Dorna then created Factory 2...

MotoGP » Marquez: No room for error in pole shootout


Codger: Race pace so far ( Laps under 1 min 56.4 ) :- Jorge..........11 Dovi..............9 (all of his laps) Rossi............8 Smith............8 !!! Dani..............7 Pol................7 Iannone........6 Scott, Cal, Aleix, and Marc.......4 !!!! Sorry folks......I like stats.
The problem with that comparison is that some of them were only working on qualifying setup, and some were still tweaking race setup.

MotoGP » Rivals talk Ducati GP15


Brain:
SuperSick58: the excuses are already starting for his lackluster results.....
He isnt the only one making early excuses. Just look at the quote under the headline.
Hahahaha!!! LOL...they say the truth hurts, but in this case it's agonisingly funny!!! Unfortunately for you, you blasphemous ba$tard, the "gods" have already issued a Fatwa for you impending demise... Je suis Charlie!!!
