The bikes have traction control. His weight is not a detriment as much as it is a benefit, especially in drives off the corner.NewRedRider said:If you've watched Dani race you can see how he could high-side himself. He's always getting to rear tire loose because he weighs nothing on a +200Hp bike and pushes it to the limit.
The main reason the 500s were so hard to ride was a powerband that kicked in like a rocket. With a 500 you were either at full power or not. The powerband was VERY violent and being leaned over with minimal traction when it did kick in = baaaaad, baaaad thingssooperman12 said:You know, it's those Dainese suits with the metal knee, shoulder and elbow pads. See those sparks. Metal and asphalt = catch and throw!
Dude, I don't think I've ever seen a highside in F1. You know the principles behind a highside right? Tire slippage leads to tire catch leads to rider tossed. Well, with TC properly dialed in, it'll moderate tire slippage before it gets wildly out of hand. That's part of the reason the 500s were so hard to ride.
