You´re confusing providing feedback with a deep understand of the physics behind motorcycling, and they´re completely different.J.A.W. wrote: ↑Sun Mar 08, 2020 11:09 am
No Andres, you surely cannot be serious...
What is "laughable", is that you can possibly imagine that professional experts in their field,
do not/are not fully capable of, (even when expected to) - providing expert feedback on the
basis of a very real, & thorough, understanding of the needful rider-feedback systems of the
super-high performance machine - they must master to enable the very best likehood of a title-win.
(Ask yourself why ex-champions, yet still fairly recent, & fit/active, such as Stoner & Lorenzo
are so sought after by teams to provide even more expert test-rider feedback...)
You don´t need any engineering understanding to know the bike is oversteering at the exit of a corner too easily, or the rear suspension is too soft, or TC need to allow some more oversteer, or the frame is not allowing a smooth corner entry.
To provide feedback you only need experience riding motorcycles, wich obviously any MotoGP, Moto2 or Moto3 rider enjoy in excess, to know if the bike is performing ok or has some problem or something to improve. If the bike cannot enter a corner smoothly the rider does not care and does not know the engineering explanation for that, he only knows the bike should enter corners better
Or you think those 15 years old riders know something about engineering when they didn´t even studied basic maths yet?
