    Marc Marquez would have gotten a penalty for that if it had been F1 A little bit of hard racing, nothing malicious but the head master would have put F1 drivers in line

    Desmosedici looks f***ed

    Honda is the front runner and Yamaha seems to be right up there. Should be a fun battle if the season is this close. Sadly that won't be the case i suspect. The Honda straight line speed advantage seems to be a bit too much and they ( Hondas ) would just move to Honda lane on tracks with long straights and blast past.

    Two horse battle but boy would i love to see Ben Spies mixing it at the front.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Is MotoGP on the road to recovery?

    Can new-size engines and a controversial low-cost, second-string class help return MotoGP to its former glory days, or is it just a short-term measure to boost grid sizes? Sam Tremayne investigates.

    By Sam Tremayne

    Can an added 30bhp, or 200cc of displacement, rejuvenate MotoGP? And does the Claiming Rule Team concept represent the true future of motorcycling's top class, or will it prove an uncomfortable fit with the factory and satellite prototypes?

    The series is about to find out as the opening round of 2012 approaches.

    One thing not in doubt is that MotoGP is heading for seismic change, both this year and beyond. It was with general acclaim that the curtain fell on the 800cc era and the new 1000s arrived, fiercer beasts that should lead to a wider variety of lines and technique, and by extension, better racing.

    -Moto GP- Season 2012- - 1333638261

    The CRT concept has remained altogether more divisive but it's hard to argue with the underlying logic, particularly when faced with prohibitive, almost disastrously, high costs.

    For evidence that the current regulations needed shaking up, one need only rewind as far as Australia last year when Casey Stoner capped a memorable 26th birthday by clinching his second world title on home soil. He was only the fifth man to win world titles with two or more manufacturers, and the headlines came easily.

    The race itself, though? Stoner cruised it, aided in no small part by Jorge Lorenzo's absence – the Yamaha man ruled out of the race following his crash in the warm up. Marco Simoncelli and Andrea Dovizioso provided entertainment via their battle for second, but they were the only riders to get within 13s of Stoner. Nicky Hayden in seventh finished more than one minute down; Toni Elias in eighth more than a lap. Karel Abraham was the last to finish in 10th.

    As a spectacle, the race was therefore distinctly wanting. And that was precisely the problem: not enough bikes, not enough decent racing. For all his panache, Stoner's victory could not mask the wider issues.

    Arguably, MotoGP has struggled to match the glorious exhibition of earlier years ever since it moved into the 800cc era in 2007. The politics of such a move aside, the problem was that the engines – assisted by vast and extremely expensive electronics – knew just one way round a corner. A lack of torque meant maintaining high corner speed was key, and that meant trying to make each corner a long sweeping arc. It was a diktat every rider was forced to follow, and the racing risked becoming homogenised, even dreary.

    Fast forward to Qatar, and the hope is that the new 1000s will mean there is suddenly more than one way to take a corner. The old-school method of braking late, flicking the bike and then powering out – a classic V rather than U shape – should be the dividend of all that extra horsepower and torque.

    It follows that with more options there should be more action, more chances to overtake and in doing so a return to the more halcyon days of the 990s.

    The prospect should also be aided by Bridgestone's new 2012 compounds. Early crashes were all too common on the old casings, as riders struggled to generate warmth in the opening laps. This year's versions should be easier to switch on, but by logical extension should also go off sooner. That pay off not only suits the riders, but makes a virtue of the swashbuckling style of using a degrading rear to get the bike turned through each corner.

    On the racing front there are therefore reasons to be optimistic. But what of the wider picture and the need to have more bikes and more riders; the need to safeguard the series' future?

    <table class="pictable" width="183" align="right" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td>-Moto GP- Season 2012- - 1333638313 Colin Edwards's 'production' BMW-powered Suter © XPB
    </td></tr></tbody></table> The most seismic change for 2012 is the arrival of Claiming Rule Team machines. The lower-cost concept is responsible for eight of the riders on this year's grid, and has been widely, and vociferously, touted by Dorna as the future of the series. Whether Dorna top man Carmelo Ezpeleta's carefully judged slip that he wants all bikes to be CRT within a few years becomes a reality is debatable, but the more immediate goal is to replace the existing satellite-team structure.

    To start, we have to get down to the detail.

    Even if the product itself remains strong, the bad news for MotoGP is the incessant beat of that tired old drum: finance. Simply put, the cost of running a satellite operation is not just inhibitive, it's disastrously high. Pramac and Suzuki both dropped down to one rider for 2011, while Interwetten Honda dropped out altogether.
    This season, Suzuki has followed suit.

    The easiest way to lower costs is to go down the production-bike route, but that avenue is exclusively – and this is a contractual stipulation – the domain of World Superbikes. A production Honda would not be allowed to race in MotoGP as WSBK has a legal monopoly on the straight-off-the-shelf stuff.

    CRT is an elegant solution to the fix MotoGP finds itself in – although it's also potentially far more than a simple fix.

    While production bikes are not permitted in MotoGP, if someone were to take a production engine and fit it into a prototype frame, the bike becomes eligible to compete. Of course production engines lack the extreme and complex electronics that help make the modern-era bikes so fast, and modifications are allowed.
    By added means of compensation, CRT teams also get an extra three litres of fuel per race and six extra engines over the course of the year.

    The politics of CRT are sensitive, not just with World Superbikes but also the current factory teams, whose budgets run into the tens of millions and who, understandably, do not want to be beaten by teams spending a fraction of that. To that extent, it's worth pointing out that CRT bikes will never bridge the gap to the factory bikes; they will never be as fast.

    In fact, the fear when they first ran was that they could be dangerously slow, liable to be lapped multiple times each race. Such fears have been assuaged however, and while the slowest CRT bike was almost four seconds off the ultimate pace in pre-season, the fastest was around 1.8s shy – putting it on the fringes of the satellite teams, the precise aim of the CRT concept.

    The bike belonged to Randy de Puniet, and his Aspar team is perhaps the perfect case in point. One of the most influential non-factory men in the paddock, Jorge 'Aspar' Martinez runs teams in all three classes, and in the past two seasons ran Hector Barbera on a satellite Ducati. Unable to lease a bike from the Italian factory for 2012, Aspar opted to lease the RSV4 from Aprilia and run as a CRT entry.

    <table style="margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 10px;" class="pictable" width="275" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td>-Moto GP- Season 2012- - 1333638378 Randy de Puniet was relatively fast on the Aspar CRT in testing © XPB
    </td></tr></tbody></table> That was permitted because Aspar will be managing the bikes independently, only returning engines to Aprilia when it is time for repairs. Satellite squads, by way of comparison, simply prepare their bikes at each race. Each bike comes with two factory engineers who run the engines and electronics – and are the only people allowed to do so.

    Aspar's early pace is perhaps the best vindication of the CRT concept, particularly as the bikes and teams can be expected to improve as the season progresses. There is also the fact that, after years of shrinking grids, 21 riders will line up at Qatar. Without CRT, that number could have been far lower.

    In both CRT and the 1000cc machines, MotoGP therefore has the ingredients for a far healthier future. Only time will tell just how effective the changes are, but in these radical rethinks the series has given itself a blueprint to return to the days when grids were bustling and riders had to wrestle with their own machines even as they diced it out with those around them. Let's hope it proves as glorious as it sounds.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Is Stoner now better than Rossi?

    -Moto GP- Season 2012- - space
    Casey Stoner won a world title on Ducati's MotoGP monster, but nine-time champion Valentino Rossi hasn't yet made it work. Why? Sam Tremayne offers a few explanation.

    Valentino Rossi and Ducati was supposed to be a dream marriage, but 2011 was like nothing the Italian has ever known. Unable to tame the wild Desmosedici, and with precious little sign of progress, Rossi suffered his first winless season in 15 years. The GP11 was the bike 'The Doctor' couldn't fix.

    What's more, Rossi found himself coming under the shadow of a certain Casey Stoner – not just through the Australian's 2011 supremacy, but also his previous tally of 23 victories and one world championship with the Italian squad. If Rossi is the greatest of all time, how is it he was unable to conquer a bike that Stoner could bully to title glory?
    For his part Stoner, no longer haunted by the wild Ducati handling, was a revelation on the Honda, his talent set free. Ten wins, 12 pole positions and 16 podiums are a testament to his mastery, but perhaps more significant is the fact he joined a select group of just four other riders to have won the sport's most valued crown with two different manufacturers.


    It's perhaps ironic that it's only in the light of Rossi's nightmare at Ducati that Stoner's gifts have been fully appreciated. Because of that, and as a result of spats both on and off track, it's all too tempting to compare the two riders. How significant is it, for example, that Stoner has proved as mercurial as Rossi once did on the Honda, while Rossi has struggled at a team Stoner hauled to a world championship, albeit back in 2007?

    In reality, the situation is far too complex to be processed into one sweeping question. When Honda tweeted a statistical comparison between Stoner and Rossi over the past six seasons, which came down in favour of the Australian, it sparked a furious reaction from fans and even Rossi himself, protesting that such comparisons were not only facile but failed to take into account the far wider issues at stake.

    The point is that Rossi's situation at Ducati is far too complex to be simply read at face value; that numbers only tell you so much. Many predicted at least one victory in 2011 when he first moved to the team, and even after a slow start there were few who doubted his and Jeremy Burgess's ability to turn the situation around. In the process of that residual belief turning into realisation, there is a tendency to read too much into the failure to make the GP11 a racewinner – and to ascribe some of the blame for that disappointment at Rossi's door.

    Though the full extent of Ducati's woes warrants a full feature in itself, at the most basic level the problem for Rossi and his Ducati team-mate Nicky Hayden was a lack of front-end feel. The vagueness, and consequent lack of feedback, destroyed confidence. The underlying cause was the Bridgestone compounds, which needed to be loaded all the way through corners in order to work in their optimum range. With no front-end feel, neither Rossi nor Hayden was able to do that and were consequently uncompetitive.

    So, can Rossi win again? Or, perhaps more provocatively, if Stoner could get the bike to work, surely the blame must lie with Rossi?

    For a start, it should be noted that Rossi is by no means the only rider to struggle with the Ducati. Randy de Puniet went from a regular top-six rider with LCR Honda to one who struggled to make the top 10 on the Pramac Ducati. Loris Capirossi went nowhere when he switched from Suzuki, while Marco Melandri fared similarly badly when he jumped off a Honda and onto a Ducati in 2008. Crucially, Hayden has also fared poorly on the Italian machine.

    There are, admittedly, question marks over Rossi's fitness, and specifically his recovery from the shoulder damage he suffered in early 2010, but it's way too early to suggest a man who was winning as recently as mid-October 2010 has suddenly regressed.

    And so we come to the bike…

    The GP11 had the same basic concept Ducati first brought to grands prix in 2003, and therefore is not a wild deviation from the bike Stoner rode. It does, however, differ from the approach both Honda and Yamaha take. While the Japanese manufacturers look to generate flex, critical at the lean angles at which the suspension stops being ample to act as a damper, Ducati first went with the trellis design and more recently switched to the carbon-fibre concept with a stressed airbox.

    <table style="margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 10px;" class="pictable" width="275" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td>-Moto GP- Season 2012- - 1333642103 Rossi and Stoner have clashed on and off the track © XPB
    </td></tr></tbody></table> While ingenious and elegant in equal measure, the bike has a fundamental weakness: carbon fibre does not behave as aluminium does. As a consequence, the feel of the front end is changed dramatically, and the feedback is far harder to understand – tying in with the previously mentioned issues of front-end confidence. Add in the fact the Desmosedici has always had a low centre of gravity and long wheelbase – the opposite of Rossi's predilection for a high centre of gravity to help the bike flick from left to right and generate grip – and the problems begin to mount.

    The issues of weight transfer would return again and again in 2011. In a world where changes are usually measured in increments of a millimetre, Rossi's gamble to raise the centre of gravity by 20mm at Mugello was an indication of just how much he was struggling. There are suggestions too that the engine layout itself – the iconic V twin – could be the major issue, the sheer size and shape of the design leading to too many compromises that hurt the overall performance of the bike.

    The good news for Rossi is that the dawn of the 1000s should automatically help assuage some of Ducati's problems. For a start, the bikes will spend far less time leaned right over in each corner, which is the de facto weak spot. Ducati has also experimented with aluminium and twin-beam frames in order to try to provide Rossi with that elusive front-end feel that he needs before he can be truly competitive.

    Bridgestone's 2012 casings could also be riding to his aid, with the tyres being designed to be less durable but to switch on more easily – a trade off that should again help alleviate Ducati's front-end and cornering issues.

    So can Rossi return Ducati to the front? Can he avoid a second straight winless season? Perhaps fittingly, given the turbulence of 2011, an encouraging pre-season has not been entirely free of hangover from last year – or as Rossi puts it, things initially looked promising until "someone had some marvellous ideas that turned out to be s**t".

    "I'm a realist, and I know well that our times are still a long way off and that there are still some things to fix," he said on the eve of the season-opening Qatar weekend. "We worked hard over the winter, and although we went in the wrong direction at one point, we once again managed to find the good feeling with the GP12 that we'd had in the first test.

    "With those settings, which we'll start with in Qatar, I was able to get good feedback from the bike."

    Taken in isolation, there are reasons to be optimistic for Ducati. Certainly there has been no shortage of effort, and even if wins seem out of reach early on, the radical rethink over the winter should allow progress to be made, just as the rigidity of the 2011 bike hampered all attempts to fix it.

    But Rossi and Ducati are not being measured in isolation. There will need to be more than just green shoots of progress to bridge the gap to the factory Hondas and Yamahas. What's more, just as the new tyres and engines could suit Rossi, they should also help Stoner.

    The Australian's ability to make a virtue of a degrading rear slick – his innate style of using wheelspin to skew the bike mid-corner, before wrenching open the throttle and launching it out – seems an almost perfect fit with the 1000s, which could favour the old-school method of running deep and cutting back across the corner.

    Should Rossi fail again, the temptation will be there to further question his standing; to ask whether, if the Italian is the greatest, Stoner has now surpassed him. The thought process is wrong. Sport is more than just one season, and the past should not be forgotten just because the present seems more compelling.

    So it is we enter a new era of MotoGP, one that should provide better races and greater entertainment by virtue of an extra 200cc of swept volume and the resultant increase in horsepower and torque. Whether Ducati can find the formula for success under the new regulations remains to be seen, but MotoGP needs a quick Rossi and Ducati.

    We can only hope that as the curtain falls on the 800 era, it doesn't simultaneously mark what would be an ignoble end to the career of the man popularly considered the greatest of all time.

    Great race! I really thought Stoner had it but then he lost it towards the end. Good race by Lorenzo & Pedrosa. Pedrosa also got a cracking start, working his way from the third row to almost first place before Lorenzo cut him off.

    Cal Crutchlow & Hayden were also pretty impressive. It's a pity Rossi still seems to be struggling, i wish he had finished better.
