MotoGP » Vinales: Marquez best teacher


Chebriil: Just playing the game for the future, licking the right pop at the right time. 1 HRC seat up for grabs soon as DP leaves and an eye at Dorna/Spanish armada. Then there is 2 M1 seats for grabs too that could be second best. Recon Mav doesn´t think the RR will be up to speed soon enough, then better to jump ship sooner then later.
Every factory is after MV already. He can get any seat he wants without pandering other riders.

MotoGP » Stoner: Marquez felt threatened


VKal: it's not just all about race skills, mate. it's about influence. CS somehow has good relationship with Nakamoto. Given a choice, Nakamoto would have preferred CS to continue rather than having MM. Something tells me that MM/team doesn't have a full control or influence on HRC. Otherwise, they won't be worried.
Rubbish! Marquez is Honda's golden boy now. Honda would go to absurd lengths to keep MM.

MotoGP » 'Having Stoner back would be amazing'


MLF: Stoner said he would "definitely not" be racing again full-time. Racing meant taking so much risk all the time, something which made sense when he was on the inside, competing for championships, but looking back from the outside, his priorities had changed. "There is more to life with my family," he told MCN. He was still very happy with his decision, he said. now just let it die, please.
Stoner also said in his biography that it'd be a cold day in hell before he rode for Ducati again. See how that turned out. Why was he racing for Honda at the Suzuka 8hr? Why was he so eager to fill in for Dani? Having a family does not give you work satisfaction. I feel he is secretly longing for a return.

MotoGP » Suzuki seamless ‘like using a PlayStation’


ZeFrenchAngle: I have seamless in my Alfa, it is called twin-clutch. Porsche and VW have had it for years. It is fantastic : continuous acceleration, safer acceleration and braking, and, critically, half the petrol of previous Alfa - result: a more performing but CHEAPER car. It WILL happen in bikes, for all the same reasons as in cars, and when it does I will trade up my Yamaha.
MotoGP seamless is not dual clutch. Seamless uses only a single clutch. Single clutch seamless is way more complicated than dual clutch. They are totally different mechanically. The s1000rr and the panigale already offer clutchless up and down shifts, but they are not dual-clutch. Honda is offers dual clutch on some of their bikes, but they are not supersports. I guess the added weight of a dual clutch does not justify its performance benefits on a supersport bike.
