MotoGP » Smith: Ducati will keep us on our toes


Lorenzo, having won at Misano for the past three consecutive seasons and having never finished lower than second since the circuit rejoined the GP calender back in 2007, states publicly that his extraordinary achievements will give him no advantages to the race for this weekend. On the other hand, Smith, having claimed one pole position back in 2009 on a 125cc 2-stroke machine, states it will give him a huge advantage. Has he forgotten that he had even failed to advance to the Q2 in the last year's event? How contrary.....

MotoGP » Cracked rim halts Smith home charge


ThatOtherGuy: Yes, you are quite right....I would have mentioned that too (being well aware of it) but after wading through so much anti-Smith bile on here, I just couldn't be bothered :)
I must say you're contradicting yourself. You say at one point anyone who pushes to the limit knowing he's a lap behind is a real idiot and Brad was just demonstrating some parade laps for Brit funs, and that is the explanation about why he was so slow compared to his counterparts (see lap13-19 analysis on official website). And now you say you are aware of the real reason why Brad went back to the race and also aware of the need of Bradley pushing hard enough? I just can't understand your logic....

MotoGP » Cracked rim halts Smith home charge


@ThatOtherGuy If you believe Brad went back to the race only for British fans sake, I must say you are too naive and too gullible for your own good. There is a limit on how many engines they can use in one season, so just going out and cruising around comfortably is the last thing a professional team would do. Brad went back to the race exactly because it was the best opportunity to do a race simulation and gather some valuable data under the real circumstances. He didn't have to take the last bit of risks, but he still had to push hard enough. I always remain skeptical about Brad's talent as a MotoGP class contender, but I think he is professional enough to be aware of the crucial importance of the race simulation in real circumstances. If he was not and was just circulating around only for his fans sake, I must say he is a REAL IDIOT....

MotoGP » Cracked rim halts Smith home charge


SuperSick58: ...but then again he already had the excuse for his poor results as usual so he just went out and rode as if he was qualifying...no pressure to race for a podium. BS is overrated and does not deserve this ride,
...and anyone who suggests to look at "face value (fake value)" should check the analysis by lap on the MotoGP website. Among PE, AI, SB, AB, and BS, from lap 13 through 19, Smith was the slowest guy (0.5s-1sec) on every single lap just except lap 19, in which there was a disturbance in the midpack group by Bautista's crash. A fresh tire, no pressure, no one to battle with, no mechanical problem (b/c he didn't crash), yet he couldn't match the pace of the midpack group contending for 6th. This is what people call "face value".

Yearby23: Extremely unfortunate for Smith, he did show good pace early on. I think he would've been ahead of Pol as there was a significant gap between them before he pulled in. Still, Pol was 6th but 25 seconds adrift the leader.
I repeat again, What we need to see is some "tangible" results by which we can debate over his performance, not flimsy "would have" or "could have" verval statements. I'm really fed up with those "would have"s now.

It is usually a definitely unfortunate experience to have mechanical trouble during the race (rim crack in this case). However, in the case of Smith's trouble this time at his home soil of Silverstone, it is a moot point whether it was really "unfortunate" or not - it may have been really "fortunate" for Smith in a way. Thanks to that trouble, he can safely claim his usual "I could have" statements after the race, instead of finishing the race in 10th or even lower ignominiously in front of his home fans - I know his faithful supporters would never agree but judging from the pace he demonstrated after the pit-stop, 8th was the best he could have achieved. Like I said earlier, this is still a moot point though. What we need to see is some "tangible" results by which we can debate over his performance, not flimsy "would have" or "could have" verval statements.

MotoGP » Beating Ducati among Smith, Tech 3 targets


“Both me and Pol [Espargaro] need to push our Tech 3 team ahead of Ducati in the Teams' Championship." Sorry, but it is YOU, not both you and Pol, who need to push the team ahead of Ducati. Your teammate has been pushing hard enough considering he's been vying for the top satellite honor and currently ranked 7th (6th a little while ago) in his rookie year. We don't need any more delusive talk of yours, just show us some tangible results. It's your home round, I wish you best luck.
