MotoGP Argentina: Another clean sweep weekend for Marquez

Marc Marquez has ignited paddock speculation that he’s looking to complete the perfect year in MotoGP, as he makes it three from three to win easily in Argentina. The young Spaniard didn’t have the race all his own way, however, with a fierce battle in the opening stages seeing him back in seventh after a poor start, while Jorge Lorenzo cleared...

Yup Honda waited to the end of the season to hacksaw no5 cylinder off after persuading Dorna to adopt their 800cc rule

Didn't I say objectively ?

Ducati just put a 800cc engine on a gp6 chassis and here we go, that's how they always do it anyway,

Never reknown for your perception Saturn

being easily swayed by a few of your favourite jaundiced youtube clips. I would suggest wou'd be better off studying the race pdf's.

So to yet again bury another bedwetter myth about 2007: Top speed.

QATAR - Race 1

Stoner 314 kmph

Terrapin 302 kmph

Pedrosa 309 kmph

JEREZ - Race 2

Stoner 278 kmph

Terrapin 270 kmph

Pedrosa 274 kmph

TURKEY - Race 3

Stoner 298 kmph

Terrapin 294 kmph

Elias (top Honda in 2nd place) 290 kmph.

So in the space of three races the Terrapin went from a 12 kmph speed deficit to a 4kmph one on roughly comparable long straight tracks. Yamaha didn't muck around in fixing that top end problem.

Throughout history of all competitive sport there are rare moments where person & sport are in perfect harmony. The window for MM and the Honda is exactly now – he is sublime and head and shoulders better than his competition. Sort of like Rossi’s early days….and even at a stretch Ago in his dominant years (with no presence of Japanese factory bikes to bother him!). How long will it last for MM remains to be seen, it will end but he is a joy to behold for the time being.
Good to have JL scoring points, great ride from Dani. Rossi could have maybe got the podium but he was busy entertaining and racing the first 3 laps which sacrificed his result somewhat. He stayed honest though and pulled a decent gap on Bradl who is arguably on a better bike. Innaone 20 seconds back seems a slight move forward for Ducati, but dunno how much fuel he used.

Says a lot about the dire state of the Motogp class in general though when most on here spend inordinate amount of time regurgitating infinitely about the 2006 season….seems Dorna are failing at the moment hands down.

Well perception eh ?

There's no reason to suspect that your perception is any more accurate than mine (or anyone else for that matter)  How were those stats compiled ?    Nostro's book of Personally Perceived Statistics ?

How were they compiled ? Over 3 races ? Over a whole season ?  In the end they show that the Duke was always faster and that was astonishingly apparent visually.

Statistics (confirmed by an accountant friend of mine, politicians and bullshitters alike) can be manipulated to confirm any point you want to make.    

Your stats show the Ducati was faster ... that's it !
