Cal Crutchlow boosted by 1000cc MotoGP switch

British rider Cal Crutchlow is confident the switch from 800cc to 1000cc for the MotoGP world championship will boost his hopes of fighting consistently for the top six in 2012. The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider has impressed in two winter test sessions so far having gelled quickly with the new YZR-M1 1000cc machine. The 26-year-old was fourth quickest on his 1000cc...

Sorry again my friend but I dissagree on many of your points. But, I am leaving for Florida and I don't have time to spar with you.

I love this sport.

Go Spies!!!

less fuel = less power

When you have no fuel you stop and everyone goes past but if everyone uses the fuel management correctly there should be no problem - all riders slow down for the last 4 laps - see, no problem (and no power and no hard riding). As for the weight of a couple of litres of fuel should affect nothing. You fill the tank and run the bike the tank empties - this is normal operation.

Hi BennyH

>Do you know how much weight 3 additional litres of fuel means (in lbs or Kg's)?

Yes, the same as it always has. (I didn't actually state 3L but never mind).

>Do you think that additional mass matters not one jot - and if so, why?

Because its all been done before in the 990s and that's the proof it works.

fastest laps at the end of the race - would be even faster if the power was not turned down.

The worst case here would be when one bike HAS to have the power turned down to get to the end and whoever they are competing against does not (very much), what sort of race would that be? A fuel economy race maybe?
