MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It was not enough


The QP process is much better, just look at the mess Moto3 QP was. Before there were too many riders going slow to look for a tow or abandoning a fast lap and creating dangerous situations for others, Not to mention that the fast guys just sat in the pits for half the time anyway, Now you get the fastest guys out there together all putting in their fastest laps. Its safer and more interesting. The bike can qualify .4-.5s faster, its up to the rider to make that happen in the 6 laps they have to try.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It was not enough


Rossi had pole last year at Jerez. Its not the format, its the willingness to ride over he limit the way the young guys do. Vale is very talented but has never really reliad on pushing past his ability to make the difference. He said as much when he got on the Ducati and saw the data from CS. Super soft or not, there are too many fast guys in GP willing to let it all hang out for one lap.. Either that or start looking for a tow...

MotoGP » Rossi: We are very worried!


Jorge has had the Ducati's beat him to the first corner. They simply could not match his pace and he quickly got past and walked away. A bike or 2 in front of 99 doesn't matter when his pace is this good and he has the confidence to carry the higher corner speed. When he's on his game the others just have to ride faster.

MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo: Race pace comparison


Realist: So you use the 2013 season when Rossi was acclimating to the Yamaha as part of the result. Why not look at the last two seasons? I already mentioned the statistical data from 2014 below, and both riders were pretty darn close.........with Rossi coming in 2nd in the WC. This season Rossi hasn't been off the podium at all, and is only 1 win behind Lorenzo. They are still pretty evenly matched at the moment.
But you can't give Vale a pass for 2 bad seasons on the Ducati for a few reasons. He went on his own. He could have stayed at Yamaha, he just had to take a pay cut so they could give a raise to their #1 rider. Yamaha knew best and decided Jorge was faster. You also can't say Vale was hindered by riding the Duc when Stoner was better head to head and was riding the Duc most of the time. Rossi is and has been fast for a long time but there are riders that have been consistently faster during their time competing against him

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo's form is bad news for me


The Yamaha is working beautifully, even the Tech3 is on par with the factory Honda's. The champ is most likely going to be the guy that gest the most out of it. Right now that is JLo, his pace and consistency are unmatched. The Yamaha is good enough to podium from the first 5 rows over race distance. Being up front just allows them to pull a 10s gap at the moment.

MotoGP » Updated MotoGP engine use list


The concessions are a bit off IMO. in 2016 the fuel capacity will be 22L for all. Ducati really doesn't need much in terms of development since their biggest engineering problem would have been maintaining their current performance with 20L. On the other hand, Honda and Yamaha have to stress and conserve their engines to deal with the engine development freeze and reduced fuel capacity with only 5 engines all season. This significantly raised the cost of development for factory teams and gets thrown out next year. Its one of the worst rules ever made and did the exact opposite of what it intended.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez, Honda have held advantage


whoami: Both Marc and Dani are very fast towards the end of race.Marc was able to run down race leaders towards the end of races.dani due to his poor starts was not able to do so.but he is as fast as Marc on closing stages.even nakamoto has said this is advantage Honda has .Rossi is referring to this. unless this problem is rectified it will be tough and he knows it.
This has more to do with the fuel limits and is Honda's ace in the hole. They are so far ahead of the other manufacturers in this area. We'll see what happens next year when the electronics probably won't allow them to control this to the degree they do now.
