MotoGP » Bradley Smith - Q&A


It seems to me that Bradley's biggest issue - and it has been for some time - is his tendency towards error during a race. Run-ons, missed braking points, lapses of concentration - it's as though he struggles to keep 100% focus throughout race distance. It was the same in Moto2 - you just knew at some point he would make a mistake. It's that, if anything, that will hold him back from progressing to a serious podium contender. Because he's definitely got the pace, that's clear to see.

MotoGP » Crutchlow wraps up 'top satellite' title in tough race


Seems to me that Cal has had an outstanding first half of the season and a pretty mediocre second half. The dividing point came when he got some of the factory upgrades and couldn't get comfortable with them, but the real watershed was Silverstone. Before then he seemed willing to put himself on the line and to risk crashes, but the Silverstone tumbles really shook him. Significantly, he hasn't had a single get-off since then, and I suspect he just hasn't been willing recently to rake the risks he had been. Not for 5th in the championship anyway. I agree with everyone that the Duc will be a huge challenge, but at least he'll be joining when a brand new bike is being developed, so he won't have to try and ride like Lorenzo any more. With Dall'Igna at the helm, things could still turn out ok, so here's hoping we'll see the red bikes back in the mix over the next couple of years.

MotoGP » Ducati appoints Gigi Dall’Igna as General Manager


This one has been hotly rumoured for a while, despite denials coming from all sides. It's pretty good news for Ducati's GP project that GD has finally come on board, as he'll have a much better technical understanding of what's needed than his predecessors. Ducati have a long way to go but at least they're moving in the direction they need to find solutions.
