Yamaha boss: Rossi a title contender in 2014

Valentino Rossi’s brilliant victory challenge in the season’s opening MotoGP race in Qatar proves that the Italian is a genuine title contender in 2014, according to Yamaha boss Lin Jarvis. The 35-year-old was a close second to reigning world champion Marc Marquez in an enthralling opening to the 2014 campaign under the Losail International Circuit floodlights in Doha. One of Rossi’s best...

Funny thing the internet...

However, the Yamaha YZR-M1 in the specification in 2011 was not an ideal design. After the departure of Valentino Rossi and foremost, the project leader, Masao Furusawy, the changes introduced for 2011 proved to be a step in the wrong direction. For this reason, after a few races, Lorenzo decided to go on a motorcycle in 2010 - half of the season with old frame and swingarm.

"In the 2011 season we used some parts from 2010, although we used a completely different set of motorcycle - explains Forcada. - The idea was to gather information, but also save time and money. Thanks gathered in this way, given, in the second half of the year could produce new parts. They were more similar to those of 2010, than in 2011, but the overall philosophy of the motorcycle headed toward the longer 2012. "

In short, the chassis from 2010 not only saved Lorenzo before use of less competitive package for the 2011 season, but a year ago it possible to prepare a better basis for the 2012 season. According Forcady, however, were not the most important part of the "New parts allow us to apply different settings, but if these settings do not work, parts do not matter. For example, we want to move closer to the front fork front suspension, but we have no room for it, so we produce a part that will do it. "

Before that happens, Yamaha have a tough fight for the title defense by Jorge Lorenzo and internal duel with returning to the M1 Valentino Rossi. Is the Italian player will return to the top, while helping the engineers in the development of the motorcycle - which was never a strong point of the young Spaniard? We'll find out in a few months.

On the one hand it would seem that the problems with the bike in the 2011 season and the need for a framework from 2010, were associated with the departure of Valentino Rossi and the lack of precise skills development machine by an inexperienced Lorenzo. Ramon Forcada weapons but his ward: "Jorge needs this year were the same as in the previous season, and even in 2009 or 2008, so we know exactly what we want" - says at the end.

Tsuji-san also pointed out some interesting facts: The maximum speed for season 2012 has increased by an average of 11km/hw compared to the previous year, which resulted in better lap times. Here, however, there is a catch, which is illustrated on the example of laps Motegi in Japan. At the rear there flies by Lorenzo gained 0.3 seconds higher speed compared with the season 2011, a deceleration of the third bend - for the same reason - losing 0.2 seconds, because the braking zone is extended. Nevertheless, on this particular track, lap time was improved by 0.6 seconds.

Pointless shite? So you put everyone in the same basket, matters not if they are known trolls using pointlessly and endlessly the same tricks time and time again?

NO. Not everyone is into M-C at the same level but trolls are trolls and we start to see a pattern here, and know who they are, so my tip, don't fall on the trap and keep talking M-C.
