Riders expect height adjuster to make all the difference at Motegi

For the

first time, MotoGP riders will have the opportunity to use the Holeshot device at Motegi, as this type of solutions were not yet implemented in the last edition of the Japanese GP in 2019. And it is expected to that, given the characteristics of the layout, the mechanism has a predominant weight in terms of performance.

Championship leader Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha) told a press conference that with a dry track the difference would be considerable, but he doesn’t expect the same if rain: “I think it’s going to change a lot, because I think we’re going to use it more than once on this track. Given the weather, it will be complicated, but assuming it’s dry, I think the return time will be much faster. First of all, because I think everyone has improved a lot: the bikes and the riders. And I think that’s a clue to feel the Holeshot device a lot. But I think in the rain it won’t change much. »

World Cup finalist Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia believes that the height adjuster could have a significant impact, but it could also hinder the task to some degree: “The height adjuster rear was already tested in 2019, Ducati already tested it in the Thailand GP so was already developing from then on. But Jack was the only one who had it. I think at a track like this, like in Austria or Austin, it makes a big difference, and I think it will make one of the biggest differences at this track. But let’s see, because sometimes the rear height device can also create more problems in terms of braking. »

Aleix Espargaró (Aprilia) expects fewer problems related to lifting the front wheel, but also an increase in demand related to the need to use the device frequently: “I was analyzing the data from 2019 and we We were very far from peak engine performance due to front wheel lift at different sites. And I think now with the rear height device that’s going to change because there’s a lot less front wheel lift and that’s why we’re able to use a lot more power. I think the lap times will go down, as they say, and it will be very demanding. I think we can use it five or six times during the lap, so it will be very demanding for the drivers.

Aleix Espargaró (Aprilia) expects fewer problems with lifting the front wheel, but also an increase in demand due to the need to use the device frequently: “I was analyzing the data for 2019 and we were very far from peak engine performance due to front wheel lift in several places. And I think now with the rear height device that’s going to change because there’s a lot less front wheel lift and that’s why we’re able to use a lot more power.
