MotoGP » Riders want changes after ‘dangerous’ pit start

They were lucky it was a pit exit like Sachenring (~250m into a slow corner) and not something like Phillip Island where pit exit is 500m long into a 200+km/hr sweeper. All that it needs is that the bikes line up in single file in the order they arrive at the end of pit lane, and the bikes must stick to the pit lane speed limit until they reach the line like usual...

MotoGP » Riders want changes after ‘dangerous’ pit start

kenfaustus:Think the only reasonable solution is to re-grid once a certain number of bikes pit in. After all it was surreal that the starting grid was empty.
That's a tough call as it creates the situation that if enough riders stuff up then they don't get penalised, just the guys that didn't stuff up. I agree, the current rules don't properly address the situation where more than 2-3 riders enter the pit lane at the end of the sighting lap and it needs to be addressed on safety grounds... I also noticed two bikes behind the safety car on the sighting lap?? I didn't think riders could form up on the grid in their proper positions if they were overtaken by the safety car on the sighting lap?

MotoGP » Lorenzo and Yamaha: One or two years?

The pressure on the track would be nothing compared to the political BS running in the background. Brain is 100% right that Dorna want a Rossi vs MM show and that's what they're working on. Slow down the Honda's and speed up Rossi's Yamaha. Jlo's not stupid, he got a hand up from Dorna and Bridgestone in 2012 and he knows it. He also knows he's just an extra now that Dorna got Rossi back on to a competitive machine like they promised they would when it was clear the Ducati storyline wasn't paying out. He's probably getting Ben Spies's end of the pineapple now as it's contract time and Yamaha want to sign him up for less. I know I'd knobble his ride this season and make him look bad so nobody else would want him if I were Yamaha so I could sign him cheap for another 2 years..

MotoGP » Yamaha wants Rossi to ‘stay to end of career’

Guna4699: Yamaha's racing department was against bringing Rossi back into the outfit in mid 2012 when Rossi was in Ducati sighting his age and ducati results as reason,, now yamaha's racing department will work to develop the bike around Rossi who is two years more older than how much he was in 2012... EPIC...
Beancounters 1, Engineers 0........... Sounds like most workplaces

MotoGP » Rossi talks wrong tyre choice - Lorenzo, Marquez risks

I'm not seeing the Honda as a stable package. To my eye it's not settled in the corners as the lean angle seems to be constantly changing. A slo-mo at Assen showed the front suspension compressing and extending at midcorner and not in a high speed chatter way but a much lower frequency bouncy way. The Yamaha seems to drop down to it's 60deg and lock into that while the Honda seems a bit wobbly. Might be why the Honda can alter it's line a bit mid corvner better where the Yamaha locks the rider into the line it's on for good or bad..
