MotoGP » MotoGP ‘not far’ from 2016 agreement

I think MotoGP should base on same performance and limitations. Not the same controlled equipments or tyres. For instance, the tyres should be based on limitation of no more than 105km usable grip on any constructions from any manufacture that match the bike design. It then up to the rider and team managing their usage of the tyres during the race. No development freeze and engine allocation should be between 8 or 12 per season.

MotoGP » Yamaha: We have two riders that can beat Marc

I think the rider would beat Marquez is actually his team mate Pedrosa. But Pedrosa will not going to beat Marquez on Honda. He need to ride Ducati to make it happened. Ducati has the extra spin and punch that Pedrosa need to beat his country men. I believe Pedrosa is as good as Stoner on Ducati. While Ducati need Pedrosa to end their tyres suffering. Ducati, Pedrosa and Michelin would get them additional 5 seconds race lead. Doesn't matter if Marquez even able to touch his ears on the road, it will not cut it. Then both Yamaha men can beat Marquez. Probably, on Ducati, Pedrosa finally has a real chances to win a title similar to Carlos Checa of SBK on Ducati.

MotoGP » Honda, Yamaha discuss Ducati advantages

Ducati and Suzuki are at disadvantages since their bike require thicker rubber than Honda and Yamaha. When BS made a thinner rubber for all bikes (2008), Ducati and Suzuki lost their performances quite a lots. Despite additional 4 liters extra fuels(2014), it can't give a stability needed at the end of the race when the wear rate were too high for Ducati and Suzuki. All those bike where not have the same engine design. Each manufacture should've a custom tire design that match the wear rate. But the tire rules has take that advantages from them and winning a title will be far from reach. They don't have money to use exotic lighter material which is too expensive to reduce the tire wear rate. Go figure...

MotoGP » Petrucci confirmed to ride ex-Crutchlow Ducati

Realist:You're giving him too much credit.
Those are the lesson to be learnt. CC has lost the opportunity become the Modern Brit MotoGP World Champion when ignoring the best package which is very hard to come by. The top riders that possessed multi-WC titles basically has 1% or 2% extra skills and tactics as advantages and maintaining them on whatever package they've. They seem had a good ride because they earned it with those smart thinking. More factory want rider like those to ride their best bike. Contract based sport is opportunist game. How good your plans to win races? Do you have plan A, B or C to gain your race positions? I can't wait the season started to see what Petrucci is made off. Has Petrucci gain experiences and tactics from race battles at the lower end?

MotoGP » Petrucci confirmed to ride ex-Crutchlow Ducati

The race director has show enough coverage CC beat all 4 names you've mentioned in race battles. That is not the issue. His bike is perfect, his team is ready, his talent is sufficient, but his mindset is still like you thinking only about his bike was not as good as the factory bike. The package is ready, but his mindset are not. Only smarter riders win titles...

MotoGP » Bradl unimpressed by Kayaba suspension

@Motojunky It's not about easy. It's a necessity to get your side of package having your own option with a different advantages. With Kayaba or any other different brand is an open opportunity to make the component customize to your need that fit to your skills. Bradl already known how Ohlins feel like. There is time he wish his Ohlins could be better than others in some races. Why not put that idea of "better Ohlins" into Kayaba new setting. So, nobody else has that advantages. So far he stuck in middle of something even with factory version Honda in previous seasons. He seem like don't know what to do to match the Aliens paces. Why not turn his new Kayaba into his "Kalex factor" like he used to in his Moto2 days?

MotoGP » Petrucci confirmed to ride ex-Crutchlow Ducati

It seem Petrucci has more potential than Crutchlow on Ducati. He show the step up progress and we will see if he the real deal when the season started. Despite Crutchlow has more talents to be harvested, he is slow in his mindset department. CC could've win a MotoGP title in 2013, but he didn't realized he had the best package compare to the other Yamaha riders including in the factory team. While Petrucci is very straight forward to be understand. He is consistently adaptive to his package. He will be following Iannone foot steps soon enough.
