MotoGP » Moto2: Caterham ‘must be patient’


I really don't think there's enough in the chassis to say ones "inferior" to another. The best riders were on kalex last year and they are again this year. The best team is running kalex. So yes the best results have been with kalex no surprise. If Vinales was on a Suter he'd still be killin it. Good to see Herrin closing in on his teammate a bit more. Go Josh!!!

MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled


And as the years and championships pass with no real equality between any teams other than possibly factory Yamaha and Honda we are left with tainted results regarding rider ability. No rider wants that and very few fans want it either. Something must be done about the bikes themselves and the ecu is the only piece where more financial input can derive such a significant advantage these days. Even with all the Honda wealth I think they'd find it hard to be dominant in the future with standardized rider aids.

@ VKal. All the "non direct tech" in the world is useless in sport without the human hand to apply it. I think that's where much of the skepticism of modern electronics lies. We don't care so much about the human hand on the laptop in pit lane. I'm not interested to watch oscar pastor opus (or whatever that sobs name is) compete against a runner w/ real legs if I feel his fake ones have an advantage. I don't think anyone wants to do away with electronics completely as it would make the bikes measurably slower ...just need the mans to agree on a set parameter. No more black magic.

Hondas involvement in motorsports is and always has been about marketing. They have been losing out for years on the sbk side of things so all they have left is motogp and MX for brand exposure. They've been beaten by the other manufacturers in MX and sbk I say because of the rules requiring a more level playing field. The writing is on the wall for Honda in motogp...if they can't exercise the full advantage of their financial might, they will probably lose.

@truefan Get this straight...Honda couldn't care less about "riders" championships. Honda has won five manufacturer titles over the last ten years with four to Yamaha and one to Ducati. The past twenty years has seen Honda take 14 manufacturer titles. As others have started to test their dominance lately they've started to get more defensive.Their agenda is clear they don't want to lose that winning record. They can't have it their way forever. Sooner or later the competition catches up. They can play by the rules (whatever they be) or get f'ed and let another manufacturer be the top dog. Can't see em letting that happen tho...they'll play one way or the other.
