Electronics – Casey Stoner reveals secret of MotoGP. Electronics. The Australian said that the qualifying times are so close because it helps the MotoGP riders. Everyone must have the same driving style.
This year’s MotoGP stepped back from the point of view of electronics. He imposed a unique software for all brands. Theoretically easier than those factories that were used until 2015. For Stoner this step, however, is still not enough. Because the electronics continue to help the pilots. We can see it during the qualifying. “The electronics is why at MotoGP lap times is so close in qualifying. Then, how many riders going fast?! However, in qualifying all must brake late. Open the throttle again and so it does the rest. There isn’t finesse.” explained Casey in his editorial for Australian Motor Cycle News.
Electronics unifies the Driving Style
The gap increases during the race. “When you cannot force the detach in every curve, making it perfect. So, the gap begins to grow in the group. Electronics helps a lot of pilots, who are not able to control the bike, to fight with the best. In 2006 and 2007, if you had a finer drive, you could even get out of the curve and get past your opponents half of the straight.” said Stoner.
For Stoner the electronics have unified riding styles. More riders prefer the aggressiveness on the brakes. “The pilots usually use very different set-up for their bikes. Someone like Dani Pedrosa wanted a bike ready for the middle of the corner and the output rather than input. But if she could cut the curve in the right way, we could aid in the next straight.” continued in his analysis the two-time world champion. “However, now they are concentrating on a precise driving style. No one can make a difference in output. It all depends who brakes later and who is willing to take more risks.”
