Tech 3 won’t sacrifice YZR-M1 for Aleix Espargaro

Aleix Espargaro’s aspirations of racing younger brother Pol on an identical factory-backed Yamaha in 2015 have been quickly crushed. The Spaniard was hoping his Forward Racing squad could secure the lease of a factory spec YZR-M1 like the version currently raced by reigning Moto2 world champion Pol and British teammate Bradley Smith. With Yamaha only allowed to enter four official bikes, it...

The most important news here.

Yamaha has made it very clear that Tech 3 will be on a Factory spec in 2015.

Considering the changes made to the Factory M1 this season, both on rear and front brakes, engine braking, turnability, acceleration, these revised specs for 2015 should suit Pol a lot more than the actual Tech 3 specs this season.

The fact that Yamaha actually agreed to let him develop his riding (and uses the necessary setting for that) in view of the evolution seen on the Factory M1 speaks volume.

They clearly intend to improve on these areas, sacrificing a bit of stability and corner speed, simply because they have Marquez pulling the carpet from under their feet since last season.

Yamaha techies are no fanboys, when they looked at last year partials, they quickly realised that the M1 wouldn't be able to make up enough time on corner speed while loosing so much to Marquez on braking and acceleration.

Wining 8 races vs a guy on his first year in Moto GP was just an illusion, have he had the experience like this year, he would have won 7 races during the first 7 GP just the same.

Pol had the experience of Moto2 style and even competing vs and beating Marquez with a similar style, Rossi main role at Yamaha have been to find and point out the M1 chassis weak points, and start developing it in the right direction.

Doesn't matter that his detractors and Lorenzo fan are going to say about it, it haven't changed with time, the hearth is still flat and inquisition is still the best of religion, to Yamaha Racing and Tech3, it's not a matter of belief, it's knowledge and technical FACTS.

HERE is ONE BIG FACT-OR.

Brilliant 250cc riders like Carlos Lavado, Anton Mang, Christian Sarron, Sito Pons, and others were unable to adapt to 500s. Sarron, who had a single 500cc win, was brilliant as long as his tires were fresh. In 1988, he ran up a string of five-consecutive pole positions on a Yamaha 500 and finished fourth overall behind Eddie Lawson, Wayne Gardner, and Wayne Rainey. But Roberts, then in his first year as team owner of the Lucky Strike Yamaha team of Rainey and Kevin Magee, said in an interview that year, “That 250 style can get you on the pole, but when the tires are worn, you are f____d.”

Otherwise put; "When the grip is LOW you are f____d.

Well done son

Remember what I teached you, no matters what the topic is its all about me and the back brake and shitty 250 styles.

Let no one tell you any different until this forum becomes devoted to all things Kenny Roberts, your back brake theory and occassionally your Rossi fetish.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORKS!

LOL!

Just watched "KING KENNY THE RACING YEARS".

22 second at Misano to the next guy in the wet (This of course was before the rain stops and nursing the tyres to victory) on a 0W53 notoriously difficult to ride even in dry condition without using the rear brake.... I want to learn this one.

Oh i nearly forgot, result of the dogfight vs trolls in the L'Equipe forum, LA BILLE 3, SloMos 0.
