F1 » Kobayashi: Caterham F1 have to be worried

@ Conger Considering Kobayashi LOST his F1 drive due to not having the financial backing other drivers had, THAT is the biggest assumption. Kobayashi is a seriously fast driver, he proved that getting the Sauber on the podium. TBH, I think this is EXACTLY what Caterham need. They need a driver who (unlike their drivers in the past) is not happy to sit back, smile, be dead thankful their money bought them a drive and say how good team spirit is and how they're "aiming for reliability". Instead they now have a driver stamping his feet, saying "THIS IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH". Maybe that could push the team to not only aspire to something greater, but to achieve it. He realises there's a problem and he is not happy. Can't blame the guy.

WSBK » Sykes: Race two would have been ours

I have no problem with team mates fighting it out. Tom also has no issue with it, as in the past he was very supportive of Baz racing well (ie. Brno where he fought it out with Tom and where he won at Silverstone.) What does become a problem though is when you make very hard challenges on your team mate, almost taking him out, which Baz did in both races. I am REALLY pleased to see Baz coming good on pace as I thought he would. The kid is DEFINITELY a future champion! Great recovery from Tom for race 2 and a great weekend for Baz in general. GO TEAM GREEN!

WSBK » Sykes: Race two would have been ours

@ Tetley That is exactly what I find very positive from a Kawasaki fan's point of view though. They have generally battled to keep up with Aprilia / Ducati on tyre wear, and for Tom to make such massive strides in the latter stages of the second race at their worst track is VERY positive! But it has been the last three seasons that there have either been dud tyres supplied or heavy wear from the new surface. Remember Badovini injuring himself before last season's opener as well as Sykes' ribs/wrist. Not to mention Camier's MASSIVE off

WSBK » Sykes: Race two would have been ours

@ Tetley. Thanks. I have been impressed with Baz pretty much from the get-go in WSBK (though admitting to being sceptical when he got the call-u, as I didn't really know him). I also strongly disagree with a few people's idea that he receives inferior support from KHI. They don't quite realise what a task it is stepping onto the world stage at 19. It takes time to adjust.

WSBK » Stunning Suzuki win for charging Laverty

@profx Just stop, you're digging the hole deeper and deeper. just because guinters takes fewer risks and rides smooth, doesn't mean he doesn't try as hard. There's a reason he finished more races than any other front runners last year. This is also only his second year on a factory bike. As for it being predictable, are you kidding? Who would've seen laverty coming through to win that race? Last year it was a 3 horse race until magny course (that even with guinters only winning one race). The only non-surprise in this last race was sykes. He's never been comfortable here. Also not kawasaki's best track....
