MotoGP » Yamaha working on seamless downshifts

@Guna4699: Point is Rossi claimed Stoner's speed was because of his trust in the electronics. Then we found out Stoner used less traction control than Rossi himself would end up using once he got on to the Ducati. In other words Rossi was proved wrong about his assumptions. Hence why at the end of his Ducati tenure, Rossi had to admit that he couldn't understand how Stoner made the difference on the Ducati, because all the assumptions Rossi had about Stoner were wrong in the first place.

MotoGP » Yamaha working on seamless downshifts

It wouldn't be the first time Rossi was proved wrong. When Stoner was cleaning the floor with everyone on the Ducati, Rossi claimed it was because of the trust Stoner had in the electronics and superior Bridgestones. He was right about the Bridgestones being superior to the Michelins, but he was wrong about everything else. When Stoner started winning less and less Rossi said that Stoner wasn't pushing hard enough. Eventually it was Rossi's go on the Ducati and only then did Rossi come to realise that Stoner could do things on a bike that just Rossi couldn't, and that Stoner used less traction control on the Ducati than Rossi did. It's like history is repeating itself....

MotoGP » 'Late' debut for 2015 Ducati

@ RDix: Using logic how can Iannone realistically beat Pedrosa on the same bike when he can't even get the better of Dovi on a consistent basis when it matters. He has beaten Dovi to the flag only twice so far this season. Dovi is the same guy that got stomped by a healthy Pedrosa. On most days Iannone wouldn't get near Pedrosa. Being fast in practice and during qualifying when following faster riders doesn't prove much. He has his moments but is a bit overrated by some around here. He isn't half as good as a lot of people around here are making him out to be. Because if he was he would be beating Dovi, which he clearly isn't.

MotoGP » Dovizioso credits Marquez’s crazy lines

@ mrfill: Sorry but Motogp bikes aren't Formula 1 cars. They don't rely on downforce and aerodynamics for their cornering speeds, so there isn't the dirty air coming off the rider in front to seriously upset the rider following behind. There are no real disadvantages for the following rider but huge advantages for them to be gained. Following fast riders shows the slower rider what lines to take to get a significantly faster laptime( hence why Dovi himself even states that Marc's crazy lines help him achieve the laptime) that the slower rider just wouldn't be able to achieve on their own. If it wasn't such a big advantage no rider would never get into the tow and follow faster riders around the whole lap in the first place, and you wouldn't see front runners purposely slow down to prevent their championship rivals following them on a fast lap. It was Ducati's use of the soft rear tyre that can offer up to 0.5 secs a lap over the medium that enabled Dovi to keep pace with Marc.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow leaves Ducati for Honda?

@ kma55: Still Cal seems to get a lot of chances for a rider that get's beaten as often as he does by riders that are good but by no means aliens. He got beat by Edwards in his rookie year, got beat by Dovi in 2012, and is on the verge of getting trashed by Dovi and Iannone this year on the Ducati. The only teammate he has managed to beat so far is a rookie Smith on a lower spec Yamaha. He also becomes a regular crasher when he has to find that extra bit of performance.
