Noticed Razlan & some media outlets keep saying that SRT is the first Malaysian MotoGP team.... do they even remember Proton Team KR Modenas?
And Quartararo received factory-spec bike. This will make battle for rookies title more exciting (especially with all eyes & hypes on Bagnaia).https://www.motorsport.com/motogp/news/quar...yamaha/4333664/
Yeah, I feel Razlan has been building too much hype. Of course I'm proud for SRT but blabbing too much without results(yet), you could fall flat on your face. The Proton KR Modenas Team was not really fully Malaysian because it was run by Kenny Roberts Snr. but it was close enough. Unfortunately the KR3 Modenas engine wasn't powerful enough to challenge the big teams. They moved to the V5 but it was probably too late since everyone moved over to 4 strokes then. The potential was there though but I felt they folded too soon.
Anyway back to current racing, it seems Ducati and Yamaha are working quite good with their riders. Ducati's riders working in tandem. Really give insight what how JL and AD worked before(or didn't work
And MV seems to be working on outright speed whereas VR working on tyre longevityhttps://www.crash.net/motogp/news/912717/1/...ans-bike-s-good
I'm in anticipation on how JL will work with MM. I'm guessing it probably won't be so harmonious. I could be wrong.
