From what I understand, Marquez does want a bike that’s easier to ride but not at the expense of speed. I’ve been wondering what that actually means though. If we assumed that from a purely statistical/data/engineering POV the Honda is the best bike on the grid but in the real world it is the hardest to ride and/or the worst on the grid depending on your POV. Then we could say that despite seeming to win in spite of the Honda, the bike is in fact contributing greatly to his consistency and speed but he is the only rider on the grid who is able to push the Honda to the point where it is a better bike than the others.Mikesbytes wrote: ↑Thu Sep 17, 2020 11:05 amAs discussed the strategy of getting its world championships from Marc Marquez has worked, however they have tried to adapt the bike to other riders as can be seen in Pedrosa getting a different exhaust to Marquez to give the bike a slightly different tuning. It's also been seen that Marquez and Crutchlow give similar feedback on the bike but I do wonder if we are getting a bit of the Honda engineers knowing better than the riders and then producing a bike that only Marquez has the skills to ride around the problems
Like saying X tyres are the best. You chuck and can’t feel anything, are slow, don’t feel like you have much grip etc. only to find out the reason why you couldn’t get the best out of the tyres is because you’re too slow to get them to optimal working conditions.
