Sachsenring MotoGP: Marquez takes pole with new record

Marc Marquez will start from pole position after breaking Casey Stoner's pole position record with a fastest time of 1'20.937. The Spaniard heads an all Honda front row ahead of team-mate Dani Pedrosa - who crashed late in the session - and LCR rider Stefan Bradl. The second row consists of Aleix Espargaro and Factory Yamaha duo Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi....

 Nice job by the Maniac Joe in 7th. Tech3 seem to take a real beating budget wise, both Pol and Bradley crash quite often in practice. Wich jus't hapens in bike racing, but it seems like so many crashes by this team are complete write offs of the bikes. Hardly ever do you see a Tech3 Yamaha jus't slide into the distance, they Flip over several times at least more often than not in the Kitty litter. If Yamaha are paying for all this damage? It's no wonder HRC has the upper hand. Bradl should stay on his LCR tommorow even if it means 5th, he needs some steady results to secure his ride next season.

Nah. Seriously, you can fall for this, it's hilariously FUNNY.

First of all last year Rossi couldn't even ride the M1 because his forte have always been the brakes and the 2013 chassis was NOT designed for that at all.

Second, when one speaks of "Style" one better comprehend what it really means and it doesn't mean "riding technique" for a start, it means getting off the bike MORE like Lorenzo did after observing Marquez, to spare the tyres edges.

Rossi technique still relies MORE on braking and acceleration than Lorenzo and this requires different setting on the same chassis, also implying Yamaha changed the chassis for him which he also denies, i wonder why eh?

Something else when Rossi says: "The information that myself and Lorenzo gives is very similar", you can add to that Ramón Forcada's "He is NOT technical at all" precisely about Lorenzo compared to Rossi who's crew chief says he is as precise as the computer data he gets.

That's what wosi calls "reading between the lines", stuff people like yourself, (Druids who made himself a speciality of) picking infos there and then doesn't do for a starter, what is technical what is P.R, what is really happening at Yamaha Racing and WHY.

 

yomkippur: So did I but i certainly don't put that on the lack of balls, from what we have seen the M1 have vastly improved from last year, see Smith bike with his setting compared to Lorenzo close call on the gas, but NOT enough for Rossi to go away with everything and he knows it.

Especially when you have grip issues with the front, the M1 was prone to departure from the front as early as the rear went, look at last year Lorenzo crash, same track, had he been on the 2013 he would have been thrown over the handlebar.

What

Druids - The fact that Dovi was out run a Yorkshireman on a road bike.  Or the fact that Nostro's bike has a chicken strip 5" wide on the rear tyre

hello4646. LOL! I learn good english every day.

Massimo Meregalli - Movistar Yamaha MotoGP Team Director

So far we’ve done a good job with both riders starting from the second row. Unfortunately we weren’t able to improve on the lap time in qualifying with the second tyre as for some reason the grip provided by it was not at the same level as the first, making it almost impossible for the riders to improve. It’s going to be a long race and both riders have a good pace so we are confident they can make a strong challenge from the second row. Tomorrow’s warm up will be important as we will try something different with the set up based on the data to try and make another step.”

Neither Dovi nor Nostro

 I suppose while you were observing Rossi, you had to 'knocked one out', seeing as you are totally obsessed with him.
