MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'


Good effort to put down 130 laps without binning it, and without any software overrides. Nice to see him running with rear wheel steering, but he needs to learn how to hang off the bike with his shoulder scraping as he tips it in while the rear wheel is still floating in the air...it's the new cool, and it's undeniably fast. At the rate he's going, he should have it worked out by the end of Sepang. Especially if he follows Marquez through a few more corners. Yearby, be careful, some of these kiddies get upset easily, especially if you point out the hypocrisy of decrying an "uncool" rider for something almost identical to an act from a "cool" rider that is fanboi-worship-worthy. I didn't care much about Miller until I read all the vitriol on here. Now I want him to win...

MotoGP » Rossi gives thumbs-up to new chassis, swing-arm


Rossi seems to be on a roll at the moment. Marquez doesn't like the direction Honda has taken, but Rossi seems very pleased with Yamaha's work. Interesting. Maybe all those "billions" that Honda allegedly spends aren't the advantage people claim (when their rider is losing). Having saids that, if Marquez doesn't like the frame, Honda will design and build four new ones.

MotoGP » Marquez: New Honda needs change of direction


Tetley:
Bendy: blah blah blah....
... he could also ride around the 2015 Honda's faults instead of identifying and fixing them. ... I simply don't rate CS when it comes to developing a bike .
Stoner only rode this bike a few weeks ago. It would not have changed significantly, if at all. He also rode the 2014 bikes of both Marquez and Pedrosa, IIRC. Honda would have analysed the data from all of the tests, and compared the performance of them. What you want in a test rider is someone who can ride fast enough to capture data near the performance limit of the bike. Stoner is one of only a handful that can do that. From what I read, he had nothing whatsoever to do with "developing" the bike. Noone has said what feedback Stoner gave, just that some "interesting" differences in the data were noted. Are you sure that Marquez is saying something different to what Stoner told them? None of us know.

MotoGP » Marquez: New Honda needs change of direction


NineTimes: @ trueFan When did VR took other riders at critical times? When was the last time any of those mentioned regularly and angrily tried to push other riders out of the track? There is a limit for lying and hypocricy
Gibenau, Stoner just to name two. Stoner was a result of his famous ambition / talent equation problem - basically an attempted pass that was doomed all the way, but Gibenau was a case of determination to make good on his Qatar threat/promise and bordered on intentional impact...but fanbois call it "racecraft". And I could add Gibenau taking out Capirossi, and costing him a WC, or Pedro taking out Hayden in another "overly ambitious" pass up the inside. They've practically all done it. Rossi is just better at repackaging it for the cameras at the press conference.

MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP test times - Wednesday (4pm)


Aleix's best lap is faster than his best race lap from Sunday, and only a few tenths off his qualitying pace from Saturday. That's a pretty good lap-time for an as-yet unsorted bike that still has reliability and software issues. Crutchlow appears to be adapting to the RC213V a bit quicker than Redding, but so far, it looks like the whole grid ought to be better able to compete next year. Apart from CC and AE, all the guys on familiar bikes are in the front half of the timesheets, and all the guys learning new bikes are in the back half.

MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP test times - Wednesday (4pm)


Joeski: Well...I can say this, making the top ten next year is going to be a mad house challenge as it seems the top 15 guys or even more have the potential to make top ten. ....
Agree, making the top ten next year will be much more of an achievement, based on the more even bike performance...bring it on! If the Suzuki gets sorted, and the GP15 delivers, it will be a cracking season. That ought to give Aprilia the incentive to fully join the party.
