All manufacturers will try to create their own analog device DucatiMarch 29, 2019
The court officially recognized the “spoiler” installed near the Ducati pendulum legal, so all manufacturers are now thinking about developing their own device, the main purpose of which is to cool the tire.
“I can confidently say that Honda’s engineers are already analyzing the device, trying to understand how it works and its functionality in order to use it,” said current champion Mark Marquez, who lost Andrea Dovizioso in Qatar only 0.023 seconds. “I’m sure that all manufacturers will try to make their device, but I don’t think it gives a significant advantage.”
Alex Rins supported Marquez: “When one producer does something new, the rest try to repeat, no? With all due respect, I finished four in Qatar and fought with Dovi, on whose bike there was such a device. I did not feel the difference. He won only in direct areas, but this is hardly associated with this device. ”
The Yamaha team used the deflector in the rain racing in 2018, and therefore remained on the sidelines of the recent conflict.
“Our device cuts off water before it hits the rear wheel, which makes it possible to fight aquaplaning. I do not think that our device can give any bonuses in dry conditions, ”said Maverick Vinales.
The Aprilia plant was already developing a similar device, but the project froze.
“I belong to the category of riders who support the complete ban of wings! It would be easier for everyone, said Aleish Espargaro. “I do not create rules, so we must adapt.”
