I used to really like Tony but after the crying recently I am hoping the baby gets it handed to him by Tomizawa on Sunday. Looks like close lap times should be a good race, watch out for Tony late braking on your inside boys it's the only advantage he's got.

@uzumaki
I cant recall Tony had ever complained. but this time hes absoloutelly rigth : Ianonne is Heavier&Taller than most riders -a handicup for top speed- However, hes setting the fastest speed anywhere.
Once again Both SpeedUp riders set the fastest top speed straigthline , + 7/5km/h than anyone else.
This advantage can be down to a number of reasons.
1/better fairing aerodynamics.
2/Better(Illegal) Fuel
3/Modified(Illegal) Engine.
4/Better Inlet pressure desing (most likely)
Dorna should Investigate&make clear this Issue.
