Ben definitely looking better...good form in FP2. He looks like he is really fighting the bike though.

David Emmett@motomatters Arm pump is an unknown for Stoner, hasn't ridden bike hard enough to find out. QP should be better. He slept badly, is quite ill.




Wonder if Honda dudes palms just got sweaty. Last time he was ill he took 3 races off.

The only thing making the Honda dudes palms sweaty is thinking that Stoner might retire, and how much they'd have to pay Lorenzo to come take his place.

Good to see that, especially in dry FP2. But, oooh boy, is Crutchlow ever breathing down his neck.

Wouldn't bother him, obviously.

It's the bike, remember. He could put anyone on it.

Hope his riders remind him when they fall short of the rostrum.

Of course, someone like that would simply retort that they'd have done worse if they weren't on a Honda.

Bet it's the bike when they're winning; the rider when they're losing.

I recall a comment from Rossi on the Honda days: something like, "At Honda, if you didn't win, it was a disaster."

And why not? If you're on the best bike, you should win.

Honda seem to have a habit of doing that, possibly even a tradition!

They win a title when they try hard to produce a ripper bike, get a bit slack the next year or two and allow other brands to catch up, then spit the dummy at the next unfortunate rider who happens to be sitting on a 3yr old bike with a few upgrades, sack him, then build a ripper bike, etc, etc.

Watching RdP harassing satellite-Ducatis is like V4 500 vs. V2 500 back in the twostroke days. GP12 is slowing him down on the corners but then fly away on the straights.

Pedrosa's technical issue looked weird. Engine sounded running okay but instantly parked it. Gearbox issue HRC mechanics sure were quick to salvage the bike.

http://resources.motogp.com/files/re...df?v1_d19bd6a2 is interesting both rossi and **spies** have top speeds as fast as Dani...around 332-333 kh hr,the will be blowing past Danilo PETRUCCI at sppeds up to 38 km hr faster....think about how fast that will be ,When you are standing on a footpath and people walk past the speed difference is prolly about 4 or 5 km hr
** edit its not spies its barbera who has a 332 and change**(even ABRAHAMS has a 332.5)
