MotoGP » Rossi revels in old school MotoGP thrills

Last corner of the penultimate lap, watch rossi's bike popping the front wheel and the gap Marquez pulls when he does, explains some of the deficit on the penultimate lap, and gave Marquez the gap that was impossible to close enough to dive up the inside, on such tiny errors are races lost! fantastic race, and fantastic riding from both, just hope we see more of it this year

MotoGP » Rossi: Espargaro is the race favourite in Qatar

So Dorna decided to create a situation where the non factory riders could be on competitive machinery rather than shackled by the factories not allowing them to win. Now that those rules are allowing those non factory riders to compete people are upset. we all assume that the factory riders are the best riders because they have always won since joining their factory teams, but isn't it possible that they have had an advantage, because they are on factory bikes. seems to me maybe this is allowing riders who are just as good to show their potential? roll on 2016 and hopefully massively reduced electronic intervention

MotoGP » Ducati 'not happy' with Factory 2 development

The timing of the release is an interesting thing dont you think? Ducati anounce going open at the end of a test that the updated software was already available. If the system update is a result of information provided by ducati, they must have supplied that information well in advance of the test, after all they used a different ecu suite to that being used in the open class, although admitedly produced by the same manufacturer (much as yamaha) seems odd then that a new class would have to be created after the test, when before the test everything was ok, even though dorna would have known that the new information had come from ducati and was to be made available, and indeed was made available before ducati announced their switch. I thought the idea for the open class was to enable teams to be more competative without the huge spending on software development, yet wheniit becomes apparsnt that someone racing under those rules may actually be competative new rules are brought in to pre

MotoGP » MotoGP to create Factory 2 class?

Damzen, Spirit of the rules? Honda 250\6, honda v5, amongst others, both within the rules, but pushing them to the limit as far as they could. Hownisnthat different to ducati fielding a bike which fits within the definion of the rules, or aprillia changing their cam drive to improve their bike? Or ducati creating 200 996 foggy repsmto allow them to race with a bigger airbox, or petronas buolding a bike they never sold to get it on the wsb grid, or honda using an oval pistoned 750cc race bike, ot lotus using a double chasis, or brabham using a fan car? All within the rules, just finding a way to get an advantage within them, much like honda has done for years.
