    Its not as if it requires expensive track alterations, its already there.
    Something to do with F1 I believe

    Folks make genuine mistakes, split second decisions sometimes don't always work out well, given a few metres either way and Jorge could have slid harmlessly between the others and ended up the only victim, as it is he unfortunately took out 3 of the prime contenders as well as himself....odds of that happening are pretty slim I would say.

    Took out 3 of the prime contenders? Took out 1 title contender would be accurate. As Rossi and MV are NOT title contenders. Especially not Rossi.

    Didn't say title contenders, said prime contenders, that's for the race win...OK?

    Unofficial word from Pedrosa is that the initial response on opening the throttle is much too aggressive

    If anything I can gather from KTM racer's comments, the engine of KTM has enough power, they're not down on power like the Ape is.
    Electronics & chassis are the issue where they're not there yet. Chassis wise they won't ever be, electronics is something they can improve
    Funny enough, with WP, I haven't read anything saying suspension is bad, or maybe I've missed it.

    Looks like @simoncrafar has offended a few on twitter with his Jorge Kamikaze photo

    KTM are having chassis problems in moto2.
    Pit Beirer has said "I feel really bad for out riders that we can not give them a competitive bike."

    When will KTM build a twin spar frame for motogp ?
    They could still paint it orange,

    I don't think they need to build a twin spar aluminum chassis. I think they can make the steel tube frame work. It is just a matter of them finding the right balance of rigid and flex. They went throgh the same thing in motocross / supercross. People said you have to have an aluminum chassis to win, they kept at it with the steel chassis and now they win.
    Would it be easier to copy what everyone else is doing? Probably. But it is hard to out do everyone else if you do the same thing they do.
    They aren't that far off in MotoGP. I think they will figure it out. Although having Pedro as their test rider isn't going to do them any favors. They need a better test rider.
