Misano Track Map with Speed and Gear Telemetry
After taking a break from providing a telemetry map for the Silverstone round, Yamaha is back on form for Misano. That’s the good news.
The other news is that once again the data represented are questionable at the very least. Four 1st gear sections I can believe is a possibility, given the instance of tight turns, although Honda’s version of this map with gear and speed info shows Turn 8 as a 2nd gear corner.
Even if the Yamahas are shifting to 1st gear for Turn 8 and passing through at 85.9 K/hr, are they really getting into 1st as far in front of the turn as the Yamaha map shows? Same with the approach to Turn 4 (shown as 77.4 K/hr). That seems an awful long distance to spend in 1st gear.
Still, the speeds for the various points on the track correspond more or less with those shown on the Honda map, given that neither entity is likely to release in a public way the exact telemetry info. And again, for general purposes these maps are interesting even with the elements of doubtful accuracy.
Thanks again to Yamaha for providing this series of maps with telemetry.
