MotoGP » Stoner: Carbon frame Ducati ‘best bike’ in 2009

whether Ducati is going to win races or not but one thing is for sure... they got their PR thingy going by having CS on board. Think CS presence has taken a lot of oxygen out of other riders media focus. Don't think there was that many mentions or topics on VR. in fact VR has to mention about CS to get a bit more coverage. Not bad for a guy who didn't like doing PR stunts.

MotoGP » No ‘adaptive strategies’ for single ECU

HelloSweden: Stoner said the electronics still advanced. proved by JL lap time, with michelin tyres. exclusion for Honda [in trouble], Rossi [overrated], Ducati? I don't know. Stoner made ducati's real potential blur.
it's relative, maybe for the 2007 ones but i think the 2011, 2012 ones that was used on his Honda would be more advanced than this. I mean most top riders said the new ECU has gone backwards. the proprietary 2015 M1 ECU would be more advanced that the open ECU. So technically JL is riding with an ECU less advanced than he used to but still did some cracking fast laps in Sepang test. a top rider would always be a top rider. The one thing that helps is the extra fuel which means the factory teams can run much leaner and less conservative. Don't think there is an advantage for Ducati in this area.

MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Wednesday (Final)

shakennstirred: at the end of the day, testing times mean little come race day. we don't know what engine maps or amount of fuel used. come race day when you cant run with the best map for power and have a full tank, plus you have to make the tyre last the whole race, will be better indicator . this it just bragging rights of being fastest in the test nothing more
Don't you think some of the test parameters would covered what you mentioned. Testing is an important aspect, if it's not why do they spend the money doing it. the test says a lot. Each teams would have taken a lot of info which includes their competition.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: ‘Dream’ test, but ‘competition doesn’t sleep’

MrThundersaki: Anyone else remember Espargaro's forward Yam being up there consistently throughout testing a few years ago? He was nowhere once the season started. Just saying......
AE Usually does great one of laps but can't win races. JL is a different player altogether, can do hot laps and win races. You're comparing apple and oranges here. Also that time when AE was riding M1, he had extra fuel and softer tyre allocation. Something that the factory team didn't have. Just saying...

MotoGP » MotoGP makes changes to Race Direction

Sete: Having Caparossi involved in any decision regarding rider penalties is rediculous. This is the guy that in the last race had his fellow italian riders interfere with Hans Span and slow him down so Caparossi could steal the 1990 125cc championship. Then in 1998 in the last 250 race he purposly rammed Harada knocking him off in order to steal the 250cc crown. This was truly shocking and he should have been black flagged. Harada was the true champion.
That incident with by LC was disgraceful. Got away and part of the organisation now. Crooks

MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP Test: Top 50 laps

BReed: Lorenzos gonna be hard to deal with this year
I think we should wait for Lorenzo to do a run longer than 4 laps before making such a claim. Yes, he's always fast, but lets see his performance after another 18 laps first.
Very valid point. I reckon his front tyre would be in tatters
Need to be fact full before stating this- The ones that are going to suffer are those late heavy brakers and tend to load the front tyres more.. Guess who... VR, mm. JL is so smooth on the front brakes and tire-

MotoGP » Rossi hoping for top speed parity

According to some here, VR can only perform well when a rider is at the front of him providing reference or carrot. Then why does everyone shouts about VR needing to improve his QF and start at the front. Start at the front has no reference or carrot, right? A competitive rider at the peak don’t need any reference or carrot. The rider knows their limit and strength and uses it. Just look at JL and how he manages at the front. Look at the difference here, JL talking about how he changed his corner handling to suite the Michelin like early breaking, less lean, had to pick up the bike at the mid corner etc. All VR is talking is top speed requirement. So does that mean he is unable to improve or even change to suite the Michelins rather go for the easy option which is top speed?

MotoGP » Rossi hoping for top speed parity

Guna4699: @vkal You have completely lost the point or acting like you didn't understand... valentino doesn't use riders for reference, he uses them for motivation to push to limits or beyond. Did you think greatest motogp champion can't ride without reference and still win the most in current era,, these days he is very selective in when wants to push to limits. I'll say this a strategy helped him to last this longer in sport. He opts to be on limits only when CS points are on the line for grab. This happens only in race. He'll be on limit whilst getting chased. He'll be on beast mode whilst chasing a sure target. when he knows he can't chase down he'll simply to ride to secure position. pushing to limits in FP QP testing doesn't give him that points motivation.
I know but if everyone does it why write about it... finding some topic to talk about your idol.
