MotoGP » Kent: We had the pace to pull away


@madh4tt3r Kent's year with Tech3 on paper wasn't a stand out performance, but a closer look (especially mid season) showed his true potential. Over one lap he would be in the top 10 quite regularly, it's the race length where the Mistral would lose out. The best rider that Tech3 has ever had in their Moto2 program was Bradley Smith, he did amazing things with that bike, unfortunately a lot of people don't understand how good he really was with it!

MotoGP » Kent: We had the pace to pull away


Navelgazer: Still not sure why the team made the decision not to go back out towards the end of Quali tho? I know it was wet and then drying but DK52 was 31st with a time nearly 8 secs off the front guys. Surely he could have got a little closer to the front than that if he's gone out and done a few laps on a wet tyre? Even a couple of rows forward would have given him more tyre left for the race.
No chance that would have happened. 5 riders went back out at the end of the session - Gardner, Kornfeil, Locatelli, Oettl and Suzuki. Between them they completed 17 flying laps, the quickest of which was a 2:01.581 by Kornfeil, that time was still 8.762 seconds slower than Kent's qualifying time.

WSBK » Sepang teases mystery ‘legendary’ wild-card


Jordi: ...you cannot expect a 40-something rider who has been retired for several years to come back and fight for a top-5 position in a WSBK race overnight. Bayliss couldn't do it, and unlike Biaggi, he had kept himself very active racing locally in Australia.
In fairness to Biaggi he's been very active, he's ridden the WSB spec Aprilia more than enough to still be capable of a top 10 as well as 2 or 3 tests on the Ducati MotoGP bike at Mugello, he's only been out of racing for 2 and a half years, the Pirelli's won't have moved on that much, neither would the Aprilia. Bayliss had been away from WSB for 6 years, he would have faced much more change than Biaggi would if he were to come back for this Sepang race...which he's not, because it's Haga.

F1 » HAVE YOUR SAY: F1’s proposed rule changes


GPdB: Allow close contact rough racing below 240kph by bodywork preventing direct tire to tire contact Require tough flexible outer body pieces to allow contact without damage They should be tested by the FIA with a hammer for toughness Protect the driver with a canopy!
So you want cars that can do 150mph, that are no longer open wheel so that they can hit each other accompanied by bodywork that'll allow for such contact to be made without major damage being caused? Have you heard of touring cars? :)
