MotoGP » Smith: Espargaro showed his true colours

Hahahaha! I just love it when all of the Bradley Bashers come out of the woodwork whenever they have a sniff of laying the boot in. I love it even more, when they are conspicuous in their absence whenever he has a good result. It used to annoy me, but I've since learned that haters are always gonna hate. Especially when they haven't got a well informed, objective opinion.

F1 » F1: McLaren confirms Michael departure

I have to laugh at how many people out there seem to think they're experts as to Sam Michael's abilities or lack of. I'm pretty sure that none of you have the foggiest idea as to what Michael did on a day to day basis, let alone as to how competant he was doing said duties. He was held in extremely high regard at Williams, but his lack of success there was down to a problem with the structure at Williams and that he was having to do way too many jobs at once. I also think it's fair to say that Mclaren's engineering haven't exactly done the best job in recent years and you can only polish a turd so much at the race track. In fact, there have been a lot of instances where the race team have out-performed the car.

MotoGP » How big is too big for MotoGP?

Ok, the taller riders are carrying extra mass which obviously affects braking and acceleration. But, what none of the taller riders care to mention, is that their physiology gives them certain advantages when it comes to hauling the bike around, especially on fast directional changes. It can also give them advantages under braking, as the greater CoG changes put more energy through the front Bridgestone tyre, increasing grip. If Dorna were to make it a perfectly fair playing field by equalising physical disadvantages with ballast, then they should also start chopping inches off the arms and legs of people like Scott Redding.

RaceRoad: Its more easy to break when smaller. try bench press with long arms. Being heavy also no advantage in hauling the bike around. bigger riders have to hault the bike with alot more mass. its easy to se the honda is more flickable. dani never complain becaus he has non!!!
What has bench pressing got to do with how a bike pitches and transfers mass under braking? A taller rider will have a higher CoG, inducing a bigger pitch moment, putting more energy through the front tyre. The Bridgestone front grips better the more energy you can put through it. It's unreal. Bigger taller riders have longer limbs, which allow them to exert a greater leverage through the bars and footpegs. Their greater mass also helps them to bully the bike through directional changes. Have you actually ever ridden a motorbike?
