We’re going to have, and I think Valentino wanted
it, was wheelie control. We’re working a lot more
for a more advanced system. In the past we didn’t
really have a very advanced wheelie-control system. Actually, when I came from Honda that was
one thing that surprised me. There wasn’t a real, I
wouldn’t say, good strategy for it. They’re working
for it next year. They can figure it out. It should be
definitely working in a better way. This way, instead
of just managing wheelie with the power, we can
actually manage the wheelie with the wheelie, so it
can have more variables lap to lap when you actually have wheelie and not just reduce the power
every lap in one place.
How do they do that? You can have a wheelie
when you want to or you can accept a bit of
Well now a lot of times when we’re having wheelie we just reduce the power in that corner in that
spot. But some laps you need the power. If you
get a really good drive and for whatever reason the
weight is a little bit different, you know, you don’t
wheelie, so you want the power. But sometimes
as the race goes on or the tire goes off and you
find yourself being more aggressive trying to get
the traction, then you have more wheelie, so that’s
where you need the wheelie control.
Big bang, screamer, would you like to see the
other engines come back ever? Do you want a
different engine for different tracks ever?
Well, I mean with six engines, once the season
starts that won’t work. They want to send them to
Malaysia just in case we have time to try ‘em at a
different track, because Valencia’s quite unique.
