"Integrated into the forum". I like this typo. ;-) Don't change it.

A. I don't think those edges are rounded at all. Round is like a circle, ya' know. ;-P
B. They look about as integrated as this stupid WRX winglet spoiler thing.
C. They may or may not move depending on whether Vespa Luigi did them on Friday after noon or not.

Ask and ye shall receive



Yamaha


Suzuki


HRC


And Ducati


And by way of comparison we have Pramac v Factory



Now, tell me again why Ducati's is outside the rules (and pay particular attention to the Suzuki fairing).

All images are said to be 2017 fairing examples




Now, IMO only here but once again Ducati had led the way with their aerodynamic innovation and if it proves to work, watch the tears flow all the way to Uncle Caramello from the other factories, but expect the rule to be rewritten next season.

Its very ugly but good for them for getting this design approved by dorna for use. JLo had his fast lap removed for touching the green pavement at the end of the rumble strip or he would have been second row. It was instantly giving him more confidence.

Got it from their 2017 official page (http://motogp.hondaracingcorporation.com/rc213v-2017/)

I am sure they have the hand type of wings (they did test them) but could not find a decent or recent pic

Rossi is pretty much guaranteed a podium every race, and Manipulatichelin having the rest of the season to give Marquez a bullshit "hard" 'medium' tire gamble every race, it's gonna be advantage Rossi's Yamaha tomorrow and every race here on out.

I find the ugly Duc bloody hilarious. It's Ducati showing Carmelo the middle finger, turning his precious farce into a freak show. I hope the rest are forced to get uglier just to keep up. Actually when the design inevitably gets banned I hope Ducati pull out altogether. They only really need one blue and yellow bike out there vs some grid filler crts for the show to go on. God I wish someone would set a real rival bike racing series, proper prototypes and a tire war to boot.
