Interesting findings.

It would be good to know if it's the same for all the other riders and manufacturers.

And knowing you need more physical strength than Jorge had previously thought makes me thing that
1) Pedro looks very fast but he might struggle more than expected and will hardly be a threat for the championship
2) Yeah, it also makes me think of Sic, he would have definitely taken advantage from this situation :(

I recon DOVI is going to upset a few this season. He has been on the improve all the while.
BenSpies, will not improve
Jorge - will be the rider to keep Casey Honest.
Danny - well always has an off to spoil his season so why shd this year be any different. Basically bad Juju (luck).
Ducati - Go Hector B
The rest - thanks for turning up.

I think it's the result of a combinaison of extra torque and the new Bridgestone tires. These guys wanted more warning from the tires, gradual degradation is the way to go. The days of keeping a constant pace from flag to flag might be over. Should spice thinks up a little bit for a change.

More physical riding and tire better management...

It sounds like Spies will be the one to benefit the most from the 200cc change... Hopefully the Yams can make up the difference in the meantime. One more test, then it's time to put it all out there! Can't wait!

This is what is needed to improve the racing - tire wear and more physical riding. This should mix it up in the race more instead of the race being over after qualifying.

Usually riders set their fastest lap of the race earlier on when the tires are at their best. But last year, riders were setting their fastest laps later in the race when the fuel level dropped off because the tires were not dropping off.

Regardless of the tires condition the best always set fastest laps late in the race.. Eg Rainey and Doohan. Doohan would quite often do it on the last lap when being tailed by Criville...
There is potential for the same to happen again...
