Stronger team than KTM is only ducati right now. KTM are loosing at top speed ( maybe) and braking. Same level or maybe little bit better at traction when outing from turns and maybe better at turns. So they can catch Ducati with a few improvements, maybe this season maybe next season.AMG.Tzan wrote: ↑Sun Jun 25, 2023 11:34 pmBut KTM seem to be improving rapidly right now! I think they’re the ones that could fight Ducati in terms of development if you also take into account their relations with Red Bull technologies!Andres125sx wrote: ↑Fri Jun 23, 2023 7:13 amAgree, and thank you too
Right now Peco is the man to beat and Martin still need to prove consistency along a whole season, I agree with that. Only that this season he´s improving in that regard a bit, and also I don´t consider Peco as extremelly strong in that regard either, so I hope for a tight title battle
But who knows, some more DNF while the other wins could change everything
Acosta to KTM in 2024? Not sure if that´s a good move, even if KTM is improving I´m not sure, I think he could sign with a stronger team. But he need to prove his talent in MotoGP too so for a maiden in MotoGP maybe it´s a good option
Acosta though has to prove himself in the top category! Augusta Fernandez beat Acosta last year yet he’s just now starting to shine…though I wouldn’t call his speed really promising! So let’s wait and see about Acosta next year!
Question is: where do KTM place him? Is there really any chance of a third KTM team?
I wonder if it is possible to run a third bike out there ? I remember that Honda brought Bradle with HRC coloured bike and then lost one of factory riders. Then they decided to call Lecona because Bradle was already invited. So they would run 5 bike at race. I don't know if it is alower for a few race or for whole season.
