There's a lot of bull written about weights. Marquez (59kg) and Espargaro (60kg), for example, are both heavier than Stoner (58kg). Redding at 74kg is vast compared to Smith (66kg). The current top 4 in Moto2 weigh 64kg, 72kg, 74kg and 67kg. Even in Moto3, Vinales is 60kg, Corti 63kg and Fenati 62kg. Lorenzo is 65kg and Terol 63kg Where are all these 'little Spaniards'?? Sure, Pedrosa is tiny at 51kg but it doesnt seem to do him that much good. He's smaller than most Moto3 riders and, seeing as you need a bit of bulk to chuck the bigger bikes around, is actually at a bit of a disadvantage. He needs more pies. The weight argument just doesnt hold water. Smith will not 'fly' on a big bike. 3 wins out of 100 GPs - all on tiny 125s - indicates an extreme lack of consistency and results. I dont know if Tech3 have a get-out clause for next year, but on current standings and with their current excellent MGP riders, they certainly need one. All the PR in the world is no substitute for
