Andrea Dovizioso: Difficult to analyse Suzuki performance

Andrea Dovizioso says it is too difficult to assess the performance potential of Suzuki’s new 1000cc project after today’s one-day post race test at the Catalunya track in Spain. The Italian has been strongly linked with a switch from Ducati to the Japanese factory for 2015, but said he had not seen test rider Randy de Puniet on track today to...

Take a deep breath Dovi

 then jump.  Off the Ducati onto the Suzuki for next year. Only 1.3 seconds slower than you with De puniet  onboard  is not a bad first effort. Randy's really quick and knows the bike well but is race rusty and hasn't spent the last three days flat out round catalunya. The Suzuki will improve because they'll do whatever it takes.  The Ducati has not got closer to the front since stoner got off it.  And he got off it cos he said it was out of date and was no llonger competitive and they didn't listen.  Rossi told them.  Hayden told them.  Dovi told them.  Crutchlow told them. Gigi is a smart guy but he doesn't make the important decisions.  Hence no imminent progress.  You've been loyal and kept your mouth shut.  Go for it.

And there was me thinking

 that rossi told them it was understeering.  The first day he got on it.  After Stoner told them  about a hundred times before  he got off it they needed to fix the understeer. Then Hayden complained of understeer.  As did Dovi.  Apparently Crutchslow says he can't push due to the terrible understeer.  If the  carbon trellis frame will fix the problem and turn it back into a winner thats a cheap fix.  Maybe u should phone them up and put them right.  Theyd be ever so grateful.  Go on admit it Noddy.  You're a bike engineer.  You have to be to have figured out what the entire Ducati staff and Jeremy Burgess couldn't. Dig out a 2007 frame and World Championship for Ducati 2014.

What I don't get with Suzuki is why they are still running with their own software,. There is only one more year of factory software left before they all go control, so why waste time trying to get their own software working with the MM hardware, which is what has been causing them problems today apparently.

Just doesn't seem to make any sense.

Surely the sensible thing to do is start testing with the MM software now, race open class next year in preparation for 2016.

I would love to be proved wrong

But I don't believe one second Suzuki could give Yamaha and Honda a run for their money next year. 2016 could be a different story with the new regulations but I won't hold my breath on that neither. Please prove me wrong Hamamatsu fckers.

The MM software

 is changing next year and will be corner specific and gps run. This years is not I believe I have seen somewhere so Suzuki's own software is closer to next years standard programming than this years.

Alex

Is that definitely for next year then, or 2016?

I know Dorna caved in to Honda and Yamaha, allowing a lot more functionality into the control ECU than originally intended (so how does this benefit the smaller teams again....) but I thought it was for 2016 introduction. I didn't realise it had corner mapping and GPS either, the release I read on it didn't mention that, but it was a while ago now.

If that's true, then I can see why they are doing what they are doing, but wonder why they didn't begin mapping their software to the MM hardware a while back instead of leaving it this late
