TC or not? Let me explain: at one point during the race in Silverstone, when Stoner was chasing Lorenzo, both riders' throttle positions were shown graphically on the screen. Lorenzo clearly nailed it earlier and more aggressively then Stoner, who barely opened the throttle completely in a lot of sections! IMHO, this certainly proves Stoner uses less TC than Lorenzo. If Stoner wants to become champ once again, he'll need to adapt his riding style to the current tires and let the TC do what it was designed for. I doubt Honda will invest a lot of money in Stoner's machine for the time being, given he won't be around anymore next year. Stoner should try and drive around the problems now more than ever. In doing so, he will prove not only to be faster than Rossi, but also smarter and more resilient.
