MotoGP » Lorenzo: Open class has too much advantage

"Factory Yamaha have made some bad mistakes in development if the older bikes go faster." Running lean as the Yamaha factory riders say is like running on air. Riding low on either fuel, air or spark is like a bucking donkey that won't go down without a fight. "Yamaha would never have been granted open class for their works team" There was a date set and Yamaha said I think were called Yamaha factory for a reason. "If Formula 1 was run like this no one would put up with it." Well this is what happens when you have a grand prix commision where the teams and manufacturers take part in the rule making process.

MotoGP » VIDEO: Nicky Hayden interview

@kenluckykid69 Where almost there Hondas motorcycle divisions R&D doesn't entirely go towards the rcv's. There's more to Hondas motorcycle R&D than a race team and a race bike maybe a tenth of that $650 mil goes to the motogp effort and go ask Nakamoto for figures. The majority of that $650 mil will go towards new technologies alternative fuel and power units not all towards a race bike where the tech employed is only an exercise to get new graduate engineers to think differently not necessarily for commercial gains. Again go ask Nakamoto for some budget figures see what answer you get??? With a profit Honda can lease RC213V's for several million euro a season if they were spending billions and not tens of millions it would be a different story and lease prices would be alot higher.

MotoGP » Honda explains standard ECU agreement

@truefan Thats not what Rossi's Ducati was thinking when it spat him off during testing. GPS maybe banned but it isn't impossible to model a track and some very smart guys using some complicated 3D calculus and things of that nature entirely possible on a set track. GPS would be cheaper and easier though. .......................... Haha once again Honda telling half truths once again. Spec ECU they'd walk that came they didn't, spec ECU and software they pack up shop that came and now there back peddling again. Big bad Honda definately big but not necessarily bad.

MotoGP » Edwards 'rides the rear', talks FTR chassis

RSMick All good I've been doubting the ftr chassis its not like ftr hasn't any lead time to prepare something before now. Still I had a feeling the chassis the would have brought would have been a near M1 replica. If you can't beat them join them I doubt they'll make a better chassis than Yamaha though. I've seen some Espagora pit footage seems like a bit of a self righteous turd but hey Crutchlow made enough noise with his performance and supposed lack of factory support he got what he wanted but it ended up not being what he wanted. A podium or two along with lack of Yamaha acknowdgement and I expect Aleix will start showing his true character.

MotoGP » Edwards 'rides the rear', talks FTR chassis

"I'm game" Now thats the attitude I like to hear. The only problem I have with Espagaro is he can be a bit of self richeous whinger at times still a good rider though but he should have a slightly more open mind like Edwards does. Wasn't there a few guys on here bleating on about if the CBR engine was no longer the moto2 engine the chassis manufacturers wouldn't be able to adapt their chassis to that engine. Edwards seems to be of the impression that his FTR chassis with the Kawasaki engine will be adapted to the M1 engine. If true then that situation wouldn't be a complete catastrophe but an emergency none the less.
