MotoGP » Dovi tempted by title thoughts, reality '5-6 races'

SoSlo: no, desmo valves have nothing to do with it... the hondas and yams are running pneumatic valves so there's no ducati advantage the ducati advantage comes from being able to burn more fuel and simply get more grunt out of the corners... they don't have top speed, they have grunt, thats why they pass halfway down the straight not on the brakes at the end of the straight going into the turn... if ducati have any success this season, it's all fake... how does having 25% more fuel, over double the engines, softer tires, and infinitely unlimited engine upgrades make any of this a fair fight? hey guys, this 200 lb fighter just lost to 120 lb fighter but everything keeps talkign about the guy who came in second... did you not just notice that a Yamaha WON with ONLY 20L of fuel and FIVE engines for the season... that's the real talking point !
I agree 100 percent. I agree Ducati needed help getting up to speed. But those concessions should not in the sa

MotoGP » Marquez: It's a good start

It's the bike, really?! Dani finished a distant 4th last year and Bradl got sacked on the factory bike. Less we remember Rossi left Honda (the bike!) and the title left with him. 2007 Stoners Championship year proved it even further. Ducati winless since he left so let's stop the "bike" stuff and give credit where it's due. Marquez will ride the snot out of anything! Even a Flat Tracker!

MotoGP » What we learned in 2014

cfsteezy: @joemagic Rossi has less lean cuz he is taller, his pendulum effect is greater so he doesnt need as much lean to corner fast. As you would say..."its physics".. We all understand your point about lean and corner speed but its not always the fastest way around a turn... there is so much more at stake than just lean...
Explain away Reddings height and lean then? The fact is Yamahas package has more lean in it than what Rossi is using. When you look at an area where Rossi can significantly improve compared to the top four in MotoGP this is a glaring shortfall. I promise you won't see one rider in MotoGP going faster with less lean than they did this year. It's progress, look at max lean 20 years ago compared to today. The goal is to go as fast as possible with as little lean angle as possible. But the more angle the faster you CAN go.
