this realy is just great. couldn't get any better for team-green!
they realy found something for the tyres now it seems.

but the 4 cilinders still has a long way to go.

because ducati has won over 300 races
honda comes close at 112 victorys
yamaha 74 victorys
kawa less even.

so keep on improving those 4 cilinders .
Yamaha please return to wsbk!

The problem as I see it is not the Kawa's tires but rather Sykes's ABA Always-Be-Attacking style. He needs to learn to ride more smoothly to get the tires to last to the end of the race before battling with ex-GP riders like Melandri. Perhaps a course in sales management would help him as he would learn more useful acronyms, such as ABC Always-Be-Closing (the deal) or DMAIC, Define, Measure, Analyze and Control....

@ sham shamarone

Stick to sales mate... Do you not think Sykes KNOWS that he needs his tyres to last? But if he slows down he will be swallowed up by the pack. The difference in 0.2 seconds a lap won't save much tyre, but it WILL get you caught by the pack and swallowed. I do think Sykes needs to adjust, but it needs to come from both sides. If the balance on the bike isn't right all he'll do is go slower and still kill tyres...

@Nick636 You do know that irony isn't an adjective like silvery, don't you? Admittedly, given the level of ignorance displayed in some comments it can be hard to spot at times. Perhaps you haven't read the rest of the thread to see what I was referring to.
