F1 » Has Honda cured its power deficit?

Some really silly, totally speculative and misleading power claims in the original article. The Honda's ICE in 2015 wasn't too bad, so to claim an extra 70bhp from that is totally unrealistic. As to the claim of an extra 160bhp from the ERS, this is misleading, as last years problem wasn't peak power as such, but rather that they couldn't harvest enough energy through the MGU-H from the inefficient turbo, causing ERS deployment to run-out at the end of long straights, leaving them a sitting duck. Improvements won't be centred on increasing peak power, but rather increasing the potential for generation and deployment of the ERS using the MGU-H. The switch to a bigger turbo will alleviate a lot of these issues, but Honda and Mclaren are still saying that the turbo will still be positioned inside the 'V' of the engine to preserve the 'size zero' rear-end. All the original article has done, is make stuff up and regurgitate what everybody has been known for eight months.

MotoGP » Kent: It’s not a massive drama

How can the team not figure out the correct gearbox ratios, considering that they had FP1 and FP2 in the dry yesterday? That's a pretty serious error. Another error was dropping him out into a gaggle of slower riders in the last 10mins or so. Combined with Danny not at his best, the result is 18th on the grid where anything can happen into the first few turns. Even if Danny does take the championship tomorrow, he's not done it in the style he'd have wished for and in the races since Silverstone, I think his stock has fallen a fair bit.

MotoGP » Smith seeking ‘super’ sixth in championship

Rayzerp2: Great consistent performances this year totally dominating his factory supported teammate. Solid consistent results all year but I struggle to remember one occasion where he showed any glimpse of the raw pace needed to be a front runner. Can't see him ever winning a Moto gp race on pure pace but a safe pair of hands for 6th place....if that floats your boat
Bradley's bike is nowhere near the spec as the works M1s and has had no development all season (it's the bike Yamaha finished 2014 with). Despite this, he still finishes 4th at the last GP in the dry, with only a Repsol Honda and both works M1s ahead of him and you still doubt his pace? Just watch how fast Bradley will be on the 2015 M1 in the post Valencia test...mark my words.
