One v good race, and one lack-lustre. Too soon to work out much yet I think. Thing is though... VR has the Factory bike, and has THE most experienced and succesful crew, & all the rest. 4th here with the HRC dominance would have been acceptable to the team I'm sure. 6th will be too if there really is a brake issue (though a chunk out of a carbon disc - thought one of those would shatter - so it must be a very minor blemish maybe, or he'd not have been able to continue?). In closing laps VR had a couple of foot-off-peg moments that had nothing to do with brakes though. Jerez will be more illuminating for sure - he loves the place, knows it like the back of his hand, has his beloved Yamaha etc.
