MotoGP » 'Devastated' Crutchlow falls from podium on final lap

WB16: . . . . By backing off in just the braking areas means pushing through the corners and taking care slowing down as the heat is generated in the corners as the heat has to be there first as you brake. You don't make heat once braking..
a while ago I heard a commentator (ex racer) say on a warm up lap the most effective way of generating heat in a tyre is to accelerate and brake hard, better to do this than swerve around.

MotoGP » Crutchlow credits riding style change for Ducati upturn

Abefan: Too little too late. He has done nothing but bitch about the bike for two thirds of the seaaon and now ducati seem to be making headway. Let's not forget there have big changea within the whole team so its a transition year for them as a factory. I love to hear riders bitch about bikes not suiting their style etc. Any time I raced a new bike you changes your style a bit BECAUSE it is a different bike. I know they're the beat in the world but if that's the case they should work out what is needed on their bike and do it. Hence the rock star wages. Some of the great seemed to adapt OK, Lawson,Stoner and Rossi seemed to change to shot their bikes ok
I'd of said cal bitched about the bike for about a third of the season and rightly so given the crap he had to put up with that bike, ever since has pretty much toed the company line.

MotoGP » Lorenzo victorious as rain causes chaos at Aragon

redadair: I'm pleased for Crutchlow but a lucky poduim after 13 races of being nowhere compared to Dovi or the satelitte bikes doesn't warrent a "look what your're throwing away Ducati". Cal stopped recieving any updates after he declared he wasn't going to stick it out with Ducati before that he had the same equipment as Dovi. Shame he wasn't patient, Ducati definetly are making progress Dovi was homing in Lorenzo when he binned it.
Has cal received any updates at all so far this year? Think both Andreas received updates before cal and before he jumped ship . . Or rumour has it.

WRC » Meeke demoted to fifth in Australia

Agree, I remember watching back in the late 80's through to mid to late 90's people make massive cuts and get away with it. The live footage was on board camera, I initially thought Meeke made a mistake. When he was interviewed at stage finish he was asked about the cut but he didn't comment on it at all, I'm guessing he knew it was a bit cheeky. Maybe if it had been a mistake and he had claimed that it was the penalty might have been a bit more lenient.

WRC » Nandan: Victory feels a bit like a dream

I would agree with most of that, but it can only be a good thing that we have another manufacturer that has come in and won an event in its first year, hopefully it will help bring other manufacturers in to the sport. I do feel if Meeke had kept it on the island there would have been a hint of inheriting the win as well. I would prefer to see Kris re signed and fight for a win through his outright pace, I believe he has got it. Having said that, Kris had said the stages on the final day were new to him and he would drive at his own pace and not worry about Nueville, so to take the stage win in the morning and extend his lead over him was impressive.
