MotoGP » Silverstone ‘turning point’ for Redding?


Personally I don't believe Scotts problems lays in either his weight or his ability. I prefer thinking of weight has a combination of bike and rider, or Brake horse power per set weight. Yes Dani is going to have a slight edge on acceleration( the RCV will spin its back wheel all the way up the gearbox with electronics needed to keep the power in check) but Scott will have it in the corners with his leverage being greater to pull the bike from one side to the other. Scott proved himself in racing, yes he did beat Marquez, yes he did come runner up in the championship and last year(Gresin) he made his team mate on the factory spec RCV look, well, ordinary.

MotoGP » Silverstone ‘turning point’ for Redding?


Realist- your quote my reply Interesting perspective considering that his teammate on the factory RCV was running inside the top 10 last year AND he got a podium. The only thing that killed Bautista's thunder was his SEVEN crashes, and none of that had anything to do with Redding. Funny, Redding looks less than ordinary this year on the factory RCV. Bautista is laughing! All that talk and he can barely crack the top 10 when the front runners crash out. It was Bautista that crashed through his own fault, no one else's. like I said Scott hasn't got the data Alvaro had and I'm sure gresini were not going to hand it over. The(GRESINI TEAM) bike Alvaro had was capable of running podium to high end points, Scotts production Honda was capable of running in a low point scoring position, maybe 2 3 or 5 points per race but still at the end of the year he was 10 points behind Alvaro and ahead of 2 world champions running the same proddy bike

For me the blame of Scotts lacklustre year lays at the feet of team MarkVDS and Honda. A new team to motogp with not one drop of data from previous years who were also unable to get there hands on a good motogp crew chief(not dissing Pike) Honda have had their backs against the wall trying to sort the mess what they got Marquez into, all the settings they were trying with Marquez ended up in the kitty litter and its took an old/new frame to get him back upto speed. Scott must have been left in limbo while all this was going on. MarkVDS knew they were not going to set the motogp world on fire but they had the best reserve plan in the world, a world champion carrying the no1 plate and the young Marquez in their moto2 team. First off all recourses would have been Given to Rabat to retain the no1 plate and secondly you can guarantee Marquez jr has every thing and the kitchen sink thrown at him to get the speed out of him.

MotoGP » New engine, fairing for Ducati


If there's a quick solution to a problem Ducati don't mind taking it even though in the long game it hurts them. Taking the open class was a mistake, short term it gave them some good results but development took a hit with not having access to the hard tyre to develop the balance round. these wings that appeared half way through its first test I also see as a mistake, obviously they're there to mask a problem and keeping them fitted stops any possibility to solve the problem. I'm guessing that on the straights the wings are in a neutral plane and only when the brakes are applied(forks dip) they take a positive position. The wings are mounted on the frame/fairing so they will affect suspension loading. The rcv and m1 under braking will have 2 affects on the suspension, the weight of the bike and rider move forward compressing the fork springs, the more the springs are compressed the tighter the springs become. Ducatis forks under loading take on a third dimension from the loading from

MotoGP » Iannone: Difficult to know what to expect


@Vilas, from a piece about Bridgestone and the Indy result on another site However, given the increased performance of the open class machines this year, we revised our allocation so that the soft option rear slick was closer to the medium rear in its composition. This change worked well as many open class riders were able to use the soft compound rear slick for the race with good results. Looks like the soft tyre Ducatis been using to get them up the front in qualifying has been taken away
