@ V4Poweeeeer Loris was never there to play second fiddle, he was there to race. And by that, I mean score points and ride for the team. As accidental as the incident with Tom was, I don't like that he never apologised. It was stupid, and dangerous and ultimately cost Kawasaki both championships. Don't get me wrong, Tom could have, and should have, done a lot better in the last few rounds, he has himself to blame for THAT, but getting taken out, scoring zero points, and riding injured for two events didn't help him, Kawasaki or Loris. There is a reason Kawasaki was keen, then suddenly NOT keen to resign Loris... Just saying.

WSBK » Sykes mystified by crash, happier with pace

@ Portyup Why would Sykes be pushing for fast laps? EVERYONE knows he is THE man to beat in qualifying. He knows it too... His issue has been making tyres last, and in all their tests they have been racking up race distance or more than race distance on EACH set of tyres. I think Tom and Johnny will possibly be the most evenly matched team in a long time. PS. The bike was NOT built around him. When Kawasaki built the bike, they didn't even ask Tom to do any development riding. They had the entire program planned for Vermeulen and then Lascorz. Tom only got development as an alternate due to Vermeulen's knee and Lascorz's horrible injury. After the first year, Kawasaki didn't even want to keep Tom! Paul Bird put him on a private contract. Tom has worked hard for his results.

F1 » Button: McLaren car, Honda engine feel as one

@107SS2009 I, personally expected the tech gremlins. I expect the engine to be an absolute demon. BUT, if they don't get more running in Barcelona, and at least start running the motor at full powr, they are bang in trouble. Button and Alonso can be a DEADLY partnership of drivers if the car can deliver. And I would NOT be surprised to see Jenson beat Alonso a few times at least. I hope so much that they get all working well, because, contrary to Jenson's statements, you can only say the engine and car are as one once you have it running at full strength. GO MACLAREN! Get your fans excited again. (Because the livery isn't doing it right now, do your talking on the track)

WSBK » WSBK: Kawasaki unveils 2015 colours in Barcelona

@ EdOZ & @ Aegis96 GREEN IS THEIR COLOUR!!! THAT GREEN. Has anyone complained about Ducati Red and Black and White?! @JedPB67 I really don't understand how everyone thinks Johnny is going to come in and steamroll Tom... Tom is SUPER strong, and, even though he had a stuttering end to last season, he is just as good, if not better than Johnny in my view. Johnny is AWESOME! I saw him live, he is frightening to watch, they are both brilliant. By far the best lineup one team has had for a very very very long time. (NOT OFTEN YOU HAVE A WSBK TEAM WHERE BOTH RIERS COULD MOVE TO MOTOGP)

WSBK » Rea anxious to begin performance testing

@ grantrd I remember you and I having this EXACT same discussion this time last year. I couldn't agree more. Here in JHB, we have great, hot clear day until 16:00, then some highveld showers where they can get some wet running in. It's like clockwork. @ ianisme Listen, I would happily transport the team... Just saying. Kyalami is a stones throw from me.
