Ben's over all race pace is seriously in doubt though, look at how much he had to adjust the front wheel while turning and how often his bike was pumping and bucking. His tires will probably only last half the race unless that gets sorted out.

err what stonehead? pilloried (whatever that is) 1. Ben never made his reputation about his ego. 2. Vr has always fashioned himself as the godfather of setup, so it's kind of funny that he has to take advice from someone else. 3. who says Ben has change philosophy or borrowed anything from anyone? Shock horror? there has to be a shred of something common for your comment to have any relevance. In point of fact, it seem that Ben is being magnanimous for giving is crew recognition, and going out of his way to not blame them the last 2 races for doing such a poor job. Back to school ,,, play time is over.

Yeah, the bike was like a bucking bronco under him, but it didn't seem to faze him, and the laps were consistently quick. I guess a race sim will provide some answers about tire wear with the new setting. Today seemed as much about regaining confidence as anything else. Maybe now he's got some of it back he can build from there.
