Apologies if this has been posted before,some interesting facts behind personell additions
re MotoGP wings etc .....

because the wing on the inside of the corner is rather blocked by the rider's body ....
the anhedral ('drooped') wing helps because (relative to a 'flat' wing) .....
the outside wing 'DF' angle advantageously contributes relatively more centripetal force and less centrifugal force
outweighing the inside wing's smaller opposite and disadvantageous effect

'flat' wing DF benefits at bike lean angles less than 45 deg
anhedral wing DF benefits are greater - and can continue at bike lean angles over 45 deg
ie this anhedral benefit is greatest ....
with low tyre grip eg wet track ... and/or ....
when high speed or acceleration is reducing front wheel load

yes it's also interesting to hear about the non-wing DF in MotoGP

FP2 at the Sachsenring
Pecco Bagnaia first with a 1:20.018
Rins did continue with the double broken wrist! ending up a highly creditable 11th
Ducati are running an external flywheel which can be optioned, apparently a 7/10 effect on acceleration with a corresponding 3/10 on engine braking. This would be more difficult to fit on the I4's

FP4 Race runs at the Sachsenring, German GP 2022
Fabio Quartararo quickest with a 1:21.065 in a session with a few crashes that showed as much as anything it was matching and managing the asymmetric tyre compounds with very high track temperatures of around 50C
Rins not continuing with his double break wrist.

Jorge Martin quickest in the warmup and still recovering from recent arm surgery needing assistance to take his gloves off.
In the Aprilia camp, Espargaro, A is using a manual ride height devices and Vinales is using an automatic which I assume is GPS guided ??
Track temps around 52C and most are going hard/hard tyres

Agreed, it was like the traction control did not work

Casey Stoner won his 1st MotoGP World Championship riding a Ducati of course,
so it won't be a matter of if, just of - by who, how & when - it'll happen again...
"Well, we knocked the bastard off!"

Ed Hilary on being 1st to top Mt Everest,
(& 1st to do a surface traverse across Antarctica,
in good Kiwi style - riding a Massey Ferguson farm
tractor - with a few extemporised mod's to hack the task).
