MotoGP » Stefan Bradl - Q&A

Certainly seems to the quiet man of Motogp. Rarely involved in incidents and gets on with the job in hand. His performance in the 2nd half of the season justifies him retaining his seat for next year though I wonder what would have happened with out his Laguna result. I'd have liked to have seen Cal on the LCR but there is no room for what ifs in racing. Interested to see where he ends up 2015 with the amount of fan speculation that Pedrosa may be out of a ride at HRC. Bradls name rarely comes up in connection with the factory ride but solid performances next year would surely make him the air apparent.

MotoGP » de Puniet to concentrate on Suzuki MotoGP tests

Brivio has said on a number of occasions that he wants Suzuki to take part in wild card rides but as yet Suzuki management have made no commitment to do so. If they do I wouldn't expect the bike to break cover till late in the season, maybe a Valencia wild card as a shakedown before the test. I'm not knocking RDP as a test rider he has pace and also a good deal of experience on different manufactures including Kawasaki, Honda and Ducati but I feel by 2015 Suzuki will be looking elsewhere. Maybe they will throw him a one year contract for continuities sake

MotoGP » Honda presents 2014 Production Racer

All those times say to me is that Stoner wasn't pushing the prototype particularly hard: the Seamless shift gear box is worth around 2 tenths a lap, the pneumatic valves probably about the same again and god only knows how much Hondas software is worth over the Spec system. Honda are running this bike with 23 not 24 litres of fuel. Who wants to bet that the difference in fuel consumption between software systems is around 3 litres? Hayden will provide a clearer benchmark of where the proddie bike will sit on the grid but for my money I'd bet it will be half a second a lap down. I can't understand why people are getting so exited over a neutered bike that has been designed to be a 5th tier Honda. 1st tier = Factory Prototype 2nd = Satellite with factory support 3rd= Satellite with Showa/Nissan 4th= Proddie with Brembo Upgrade 5th= Poverty Spec Proddie
