MotoGP » Dovizioso: We're getting closer all the time

It's good to see the red bikes back up towards the front. I'd be very interested to know how their fuel consumption compares to the Yamaha & Honda and with it how much (if any) their progress would be impeded if they were tied to 20 litres. I also think that the semi factory 'open' class should have the same tyre allocation as the full factory bikes, since the whole point of it was to allow bikes with less power to have a slight advantage - not to give 'factory' bikes qualifying tyres and then have them shred their tyres in the race as they don't have access to the harder compounds.

BSB » Brookes accepts black flag ruling

alol: The no restart rule was an over the top knee jerk reaction to the aforementioned Brands Hatch 2012 scenario. When 3 or 4 marshalls go to assist a fallen rider surely they are qualified to rule whether the bike is ok to continu or not.. No other Professional road racing series in the world has this dumb rule. What I find just as annoying comes when a race race is redflagged and after the clean up they go & shorten the races so us hardcore fans frequently get short changed. I appreciate that we must make it as safe as possible but these two things totally frustrate me about BSB.
They're not mechanics, and even a race mechanic would not be able to tell what was lurking behind the fairings with a 5 second glance. Who could tell by a quick glance if it had ingested stones or debris, if a hose or clip had been damaged, if the engine casing was cracked?! I think it's perfectly sensible.

MotoGP » Mystery solved for second fastest Smith

@SuperSick58 "Everybody can turn a fast lap..." Really, why aren't you on the grid then? Why didn't I carry on club racing and end up in MotoGP? I was slow, most other folk are slow compared to club racers. Anyone on the GP grid is extremely quick. BS has just posted the second fastest laptime in testing to the current World Champion, which makes him stupidly quick. Yes, he may've had some bad races, but that doesn't mean he is underserving of that seat. If he was, Herve Poncheral wouldn't have put him in it.

MotoGP » Mystery solved for second fastest Smith

"That would be the day when a well funded, competitive team is not allowed on the grid because of PBM.. " I wasn't meaning PBM per se, just that there are other teams looking to move up and limited places. Of course there are politics and sponsor concerns, but a team like Tech 3 would not want a poor rider on their bike either and neither would Yamaha. Anyone that can lap like he just has in the post race test deserves to be there.
