Marc M�rquez Analyzes His First Steps in Moto2

For the first time in late November and with the enthusiasm of a child on Christmas Day, Marc M�rquez rode the bike with which he will compete in 2011. After a restless night, in the morning he faced an engine almost five times bigger than the one he had when he competed in the eighth-litre of the World Championship ?600cc instead of 125cc?, and a bike that is twice as heavy and has more than twice the power. From those first laps he has drawn his initial impressions of the category in which he will run next year.

11 Teams Still in Running to Enter MotoGP in 2012 Season

The International Motorcycling Federation announced 11 teams have passed the latest round of applications for the 2012 MotoGP season.

MotoGP promoter Dorna and the International Road Racing Teams Association selected 11 new teams representing 16 riders to continue with the application process for the 2012 season. Applicants submitted detailed plans for participation to the IRTA by May 14. The FIM announced in April that 14 teams and 21 riders had passed the previous step but the list was whittled down to 13 teams after the May 13-15 Le Mans round.

The 11 remaining teams will have until June 3 to provide a security deposit with the IRTA. Dorna and the IRTA will then decide during the June 3-5 Catalunya Grand Prix which teams will be offered a contract to race in the 2012 season. Teams wishing to participate as Claiming Rule Teams will also have to receive approval from the Grand Prix Commission. While there?s no guarantee all 11 remaining teams will pass this final step, the MotoGP grid will be a lot larger than its current 17-rider lineup.

The FIM did not announce which teams had made it past the recent round of cuts, though it is believed that Norton had applied for a team with two riders. Following the Catalunya grand Prix, the FIM will release the names of the teams invited to join the existing teams for the 2012 MotoGP season.

Simoncelli-Pedrosa: 5 points and head

Simoncelli-Pedrosa: 5 points and head

Simoncelli-Pedrosa: 5 points and head

After ten days of debates, discussions, authoritative opinions, testimony, verdicts, viewing photos and movies I want to return the contact occurred on the 18th lap of the GP of France between Dani Pedrosa and Marco Simoncelli, Marco penalized with a ride trough “and Dani Unfortunately, he suffered a fracture of the right clavicle, made ??last Wednesday in Barcelona. During this period I read all the comments posted on Moto.it, I spoke again with the players, especially with Fausto Gresini, Team Manager Simoncelli, who confirmed that the telemetry says Marco, on the occasion, has stretched the braking compared to the previous lap. I have read what the journalist Denis Noyes said the weekly magazine “Motociclismo” Spanish (and reported from the site GPone.com ) by Kenny Roberts, Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz, Kenny Roberts Junior and Wayne Gardner.

“In our time – is the opinion of Roberts Senior, three world titles in 500 – when some pilot was behaving in that way, we went to speak and the right a bit ‘, but today’s drivers do not speak much to each other “.
Or: Simoncelli was wrong, at least this is the interpretation that I give to the words of the great Kenny.

Clare also the view of Wayne Rainey , World Champion from ’90 to ’93 with the Yamaha 500.
“Simoncelli left no alternative to Pedrosa: Marco was faster, he could pass it in another way.”

He has no doubt even Gardner , 500cc World Champion in 1987 with Honda.
“I think Simoncelli has been too aggressive. It ‘s true, so is racing, but for this we must think not only to themselves but to others. If Mark had done that, leaving enough space to overtake Dani, it was ok” .

Kevin Schwantz , Suzuki World Champion with 500 in 1993, trying to understand Simoncelli.
“It ‘s been hard to overtake, but the races are like this: perhaps he thought that Mark Stoner was running away and would not run for second place.”

Curiosa’s thesis Roberts Junior . he World Champion with Suzuki in 2000.
“If Pedrosa was a dirt track pilot would know that you never have to straighten the bike.”

The conclusions
Recorded the views of the great American pilots of the past, here are my conclusions on the episode discussed.

I told you to “hot” and I remain convinced, even after having analyzed all cold in the detail: I think Mark is wrong overtaking, because they did not leave room for Pedrosa. Gresini says that Mark has held the same point in the previous round, but while it was only the 17th passage, the 18th Pedrosa was inside. Beware, though: this does not mean that a rider Simoncelli is wrong, but at that moment made a move, in my view, beyond the limit.

2) not guilty PEDROSA
Many also give the blame on Pedrosa, arguing, more or less: “Since Simoncelli was thus stronger than he should have let him pass and did not resist at all costs. So, if you say that Mark has the wrong time of ‘ attack, Dani was not tactically smart. ”
This is partly true, with a substantial difference, though: Pedrosa had every right to resist and doing it has not created any damage to the rival.

Although I believe that Simoncelli has forced the pass, I am also convinced that the penalty imposed is too exaggerated, because that Mark was not an impropriety, but a “normal” operation of the race. In addition, and that’s what makes me angry, I’m pretty sure that the direction the race has taken only for what had been said against Simoncelli in the days before the race. In other words, if a cause of the fall Pedrosa was another rider would not have been taken. And be aware that this disadvantage may create a dangerous precedent.

Among the comments, I also read the attacks out of place, in my view, to Pedrosa. Even striking that of Charles Pernat (with whom I discussed at length), manager and consultant Capirossi Simoncelli. According Pernat, “Pedrosa is not suitable for MotoGP, it’s a featherweight against a heavyweight and for this reason, every time you fall, get hurt.” Dani I find it admirable that has the ability to tame a MotoGP despite measures to be “lightweight”, to quote Pernat. And ‘course, unfortunately, that when the Spaniard fell almost always gets hurt, but I remember in the last two incidents, Dani was injured through no fault of his own: in Japan accelerated the bike remained in France for contact with Simoncelli .

Shuhei Nakama, the man of reference of the HRC on the track, has always been a great admirer of Simoncelli, love him so much to do at the end of 2009 a direct contract, but after what happened in France was quite annoyed, to put it mildly . This episode may have consequences on the career of Mark? Gresini rule it out categorically.

But what are your thoughts? If you are interested not only directly on Moto.it, I can write to zam@moto.it: I will answer Wednesday night from 23 to 23.30 in the program “You’ve Got Mail Zam”, broadcast on Telenova – SportAction, Channel 195 of digital terrestrial.

Rossi Testing Ducati GP12 At Mugello, Alongside New Ducati Superbike

The return of the 1000cc MotoGP bikes in 2012 is keenly awaited, and testing for the 2012 season is now well underway. Ducati has had two days of testing at Jerez back in April, while Casey Stoner put in two days on the Honda at Jerez earlier this month. 

As they did for the switch to 800cc back in 2007, Ducati is getting a lot of work done early, as Valentino Rossi is back on track at Mugello today (Thursday), testing the GP12 again, according to reports at GPOne.com. Rossi's test day will be the third of the eight days testing allowed with contracted (i.e. current MotoGP) riders on the 2012 machine, and as GPOne.com suggests, is a clue that the emphasis for Ducati is very much on being competitive from the start of the 2012 season.
