He's got the right attitude screw Tom he's not going to do him any favors anyway.

Race fair but Tom won't ever win him a world title.

Marco Melandri comes to mined for me he may not be liked but do you think he's ever let his teammates get the better of him if he could do anything about it.

Playing second fiddle is only for the world of cinspiracy theorists.

Some riders are dirt track riding to improve their fitness. It looks like some are carrying that over to the road and using other riders as a berm to get themselves around the corner? Or in Cluzel's case, as a catch fence to get himself stopped. (Aragon, supersport race)
On a lighter note, maybe the ghost of Sideshow Bob was looking down at Alex Lowes and thinking: That's not the way to do it. You're supposed to crash and take someone out with you when you start so fast on cold tyres, Like I did.

Let's have a little bit of perspective here, first of all what happened was a racing incident; end of story. Personally I can't myself recall a time where Baz has been touted as an aggressive rider who makes reckless moves, he rides with maturity far beyond his years. People seem to forget he is just 21, maybe he was a tad over enthusiastic on the first lap but had that been Alex Lowes we would put it down to him making the mistake down to him wanting it so bad. Like he said, this will all be forgotten in a few weeks. A very mature interview from him IMO.

It's a massive year for Baz who is well established following last season and now has to be seen to be a front runner, not just a wing man.
I'm sure Tom is sore, and it's been grinding him a bit that Baz has really made him work for some race wins this year, but it's been a great spectacle and it's been going just as it should be.

Tom should also note that having a strong team mate will deny his rivals points. Loris has already kept plenty of points off Tom's main rivals, and this accident maybe cost 17 points at the very most.

It was no banzai move, and he's held his hands up and explained his position quite clearly. I like Baz even more than before after this useful interview.

We can t really argue to much with Baz, sht happens and this time was to him.. Like i said before Baz needed to be more carefull was the 1 lap for God sake, theer is no rider in the World that will give a good justification to attemp one pass where many riders are together... Loriz say Tom was slow offcorse was slow many riders on the same corner 1 lap circuit Sepang we only need to wach that corner to understand that riders dont pass there on Full GAZ on the first lap..ehehe Como On Loriz you did SHT period thats it.. Move On and more carefull next time...

I also laugth woth Guiliano comments because i guess he shouldn t speack top much and i trully understand Tom Sykes because this guy learn with the best riders and when was him honestly i dont remember the last time Tom Sykes crash someone or simply had a Tuff moment racing hard where riders touch and can crash, honestly dont remember wish says a lot about Tom and is angry because is Atitute is allways to be FAIR with the others

Vilas46: (Toms) Atitute is allways to be FAIR with the others


Really? He had a go at Eugene Laverty on Twitter last year for not shaking his hand after the race on the slow down lap. Laverty responded simply with a picture of him with his hand out and Tom riding straight past lol

i dont know about that suff with Laverty or any other rider.. i know that sometimes riders have problems and bad situacions or miss understandings but i was not talcking about that.. i was talcking about dangerous situacions on track or asilly mistake like Baz Did.. Dont remember to wach Tom doing one mistake like this!! But Ey sht happens was only one Mistake and i never told that Baz should be punish for that or somethingh in fact can Happen the same with Tom one day we never know..

I enjoy the interview and have more respect from Baz, this interviews are allways nice to wach other prespective ... What i whant is to wach good racing and that Kawasaki can win the manufacter this year, what Kawasaki was needing was this, Baz needed to ride better then last year and is doing that... So lets what happen on next races...

Seriously. Giugliano has always seemed unaware that bringing the bike in one piece to the checkered flag would actually be a good thing, yet he goes on about how someone else is over-agressive. I'm pretty sure his team bosses cry every night because of the repair bills he put them through. How about taking a good look at the mirror before pointing fingers?

That said, Baz' attitude is very good. He made a mistake, that's right. Was it bad to take your championship-leading teammate out? Very. But it wasn't over the top as a move.
