Cars Development of the Suzuki GSX-RR: drivability more important than top performance
Marvel's Phase 4 is the most uncertain the MCU has been since Iron Man – and that’s exciting
Phase 4 is a rare and welcome chance to start over in the MCUAvengers: Endgame not only brought a story arc 22 movies in the making to an end, but also waved goodbye to Marvel Studios’ old guard. Chris Evans’ Captain America hung up his shield, while Iron Man – Robert Downey Jr.’s lovable playboy philanthropist who kickstarted this phenomenon – perished with an “I Am Iron Man” click of the fingers. Black Widow (though returning for a prequel solo movie) has her fate sealed, and even Hulk is lost in a complex battle of movie rights.
Only four points separate Suzuki works driver Joan Mir from the championship lead at half-time of the season . In the past races, Mir got significantly more points than his competitors and was regularly on the podium.
The Spaniard in Suzuki service is one of the favorites for the world title this year. This was made possible by the progress that Suzuki was able to make on the GSX-RR project.
"Our philosophy has not changed," explains Suzuki Technical Director Ken Kawauchi. "We want to improve the performance step by step. But drivability must not suffer as a result. We are concentrating on that. We cannot change the specifications this year or next and must therefore proceed carefully."
Is the 2020 version the best Suzuki GSX-RR in history? "We are 80 percent satisfied," Kawauchi remarks cautiously. "We didn't take that big step, but our bike has been improved compared to last year."
"Suzuki is doing a good job at the factory, but our drivers have also improved. The team is also working very well. We are more or less satisfied with our performance," commented the Suzuki technical director at the Catalonia Grand Prix in Barcelona.
