MotoGP » Dovi: Open rules not behind Ducati podium


Continued.... Sport is zero-sum-game (unlike an economy or society) activity that tries to limit variables to let people compete to reach ONE quantifiable goal - i.e. a race win - hence all of the rules that LIMIT teams on what they can do.... Every sport is like that. It has nothing to do with life or government or society. I, too, am very free market oriented, but to try and compare my personal beliefs about life/government to a sport is ridiculous. You want competition, don't you? You want more bikes on the podium, don't you? Then you need to understand that such a small company like Ducati cannot compete with Honda and Yamaha given the current rules (5 engines and 20L of fuel) to achieve the ONLY goal in MotoGP - which is a Win. Dorna made the rules - Ducati is using them. It's stupid not to take advantages given to you via rules. Do you think when Honda freezes their fuel (to get more fuel into 20L) that it's cheating?

MotoGP » Dovi: Open rules not behind Ducati podium


Brain: @ Talent Fan This is big boy sport, not schoolboy sport where soccer moms rule. When you grow up and play big boy sport, everyone doesnt get to play, and everyone doesnt get a medal to boost their self esteem. You soccer moms just cannot admit that maybe, just maybe, others are better than your little Johnny, and we dont want special rules to make him look better than he is. Its like welfare, some think its passionate, other say it gives slackers even more of an excuse to be slackers
You're wrong. If you don't like the rules, that's fine. But be pissed at Dorna - not Duc for exploiting them like any other factory would do. It's more akin to an underdog using the rules to benefit them, not participation medals handed out to everyone. This is not life, it's sport. Comparing it to welfare is stupid. Sports need to have equality of competition, not opportunity - FOR THE SPORT. Comparing the two (life vs sport) is stupid. Sport is zero sum game,

1) It's not cheating - it's rules. 2) Honda have had their way with MotoGP for years, yet no one bats an eye 3) I guess you guys don't like seeing more than 2 manufacturers ever on the podium do you? 4) Duc only made the podium when everyone had issues with tires - and you think they have an unfair advantage???? (How far did Repsol finish ahead of everyone else?) Will you all complain this much when Aleix makes a podium. You better, you hypocrites.

MotoGP » Hayden top Open Honda after tough weekend


thekenluckykid69:
golfnut04: Hey wheres Kenlucky and Pakundo? i was just waiting to see with what idiocy they were going to come up with, As for tires Bridgestone drop the ball on the front tires , monopoly brings complacency and this is a good example. As for outright competition even if Hayden had a satellite RC213V he would do a lot better but we can all see that HRC placed all their eggs on the Repsol team, the times show that they are untouchable.
LOL !! The amount of idiocy written here is funny as chit. Using factory electronics, blow torches and the such - not to mention Repsol conspiracy theories thrown in for good measure !! The FACT is that Hayden was 15th fastest and without attrition would be likley to the final result. He does bring it in. But as i posted long ago: Without a vastly superiour bike AND luck there is little chance Hayden can be a contender, much less win. It is NOT Hate - just A fact.
Yawn.....

How innovative can you be when you have a fuel allotment, small testing window, engine allotment, and single tire manufacturer? You won't see any new frame designs, engine designs, or suspension designs until all of the above change. You have to have common sense simple rules in order to have competition and innovation. The more rules you have, the more unfair and uncompetitive it gets. If it's too hard or expensive to compete, manufacturers leave. When you make rules like Dorna and Honda have, you then have to make more and more rules to accommodate some of the other teams to keep them from leaving. Which is what's happening. It's too hard and too expensive to compete, so no one does. You'll end up with just Honda's, and no one else eventually if you keep going down this path, and then you'll have no innovation whatsoever. The competition aspect of MotoGP is the heart of it... Innovation is a by-product

MotoGP » Dovi: Open rules not behind Ducati podium


TalentFan: So.... HRC & Yam have developed their bikes and spent more since MotoGP began. ,.. And have aquired solutions and data, and driven the tech rules to suit them... And spent big to develop tech to sidestep rules... And now have big advantages over Ducati... That were then ringfenced and protected advantages by the testing restrictions. So... It's fair that H & Y get to keep their advantages by rules preventing any other team from being able to develop? The biased and ridiculous comments and total lack of intelligent reasoning on here is chronic! Some mouthbreathers seem to prefer to strangle any efforts to level the playing field simply cos they are too dense to see past their own petty discriminations and show favouritism toward those with everything already. God I hope these idiots are kids and not mature adults for humanity's sake.
Finally - some sound thought.

Brain: I am one of those who likes Moto GP for the innovations in engineering, after all, thats what this series was supposed to be. If you are looking for equality and performance indexing, WSBK is the series for you. Why turn Moto GP into a glorified SBK series. If more bikes on the podium happens, great, but i dont worry myself with it, i dont care. If 1 manufacturer wins every race by 10 seconds, so be it, i dont care. I can honestly say i have never walked away from a GP race disappointed, be it a duel to the line, or a 10 second win. In my opinion, Dorna will kill WSBK by going to EVO tech regs, and will kill GP if they dumb down GP to to take its place.
Oh my friend you are so wrong... If you like it for the innovation (as do I although there isn't any nowadays...), why aren't you screaming at the top of your lungs at Honda and Dorna with their stupid rules. Max bore of 81mm, max number of cylinders 4... Cont. on next post

MotoGP » Hayden top Open Honda after tough weekend


BrianC: I don't see why they can't let the RCV run the Honda factory team electronics. They don't have pneumatic valves or seamless transmissions so it's not like they can beat factory teams on speed anyway. At least this way the races would be more fun to watch..
Well - that'd be against the rules.... So that most definitely will not happen. But the electronics will get much better. And if Aspar does get pneumatics, it will change the game for sure. Aspar should take a blow torch to the underside of that tank, and then hit the inside of the tank with some compressed air so that it bows it out a bit and lets them run 24L.... it's only an extra 3 lbs of weight...

MotoGP » Hayden top Open Honda after tough weekend


We'll see. Remember how slow the Moto2 bikes were in their first year... They were cutting slower laps that WSS bikes, now they're faster than WSBK bikes... They have to develop the software and the bike some more. Hayden is going to have to change his style a bit more - all of those things of which, are happening. I don't think this is over by a long shot. And I bet Honda does give them something. It's very early days in a 2 year contract still to make any judgements.
