    ^Yep.

    They seem to have taken a wee step backwards.
    Their #1 rider (AD) used to ride well without it ... they better get it sorted by mid-year.

    As far as the 'storage' at the back is concerned... I thought they were storing all Crutchlow's excuses in it, and were going to give it to him at the Xmas party. Needed a bigger one obviously.

    Credit where its due, when he isnt throwing it into the sand, Crutchlow is a pretty decent rider.

    He put in a monster effort on Sunday after his crash on Saturday as well.

    Surely they have race techs.. anyone else notice the fork angle needs to be steepened up a tad..overall ride could use a 10mm rear 5mm front increase too..I'm not even gonna talk about the wheelbase. (51% F 49% R bias..? it's a thing ...eh? )
    Are the engineers sure they have all the info on getting through corners quickly ( mid corner - off/on throttle ) ?

    Oh yeh .. "tha's it... we puttada wings on him he fly outtada corner now.." fkn retards.

    and put a box on the tail....what ever happened to the drag/slipstream bullshit argument they used to make..( re; tail causing air turbulence and giving trailing rider a tow) ?

    Crutchlows hospital experience.

    Also includes his usual "I could have been on the podium" statement.

    This article is telling me Vinales might be regretting his decision to stay with Yamaha.

    “I agreed to extend my contract so I can’t complain.”

    I read some comments about how when Marquez moved to HRC, he had to learn how to discuss issues with the Japanese engineers because they had a different working culture. Originally he was describing problems, he'd jump back on the bike after they tinker with it, and nothing had changed. Once he learnt how to communicate what was needed, things got better.

    Maybe Vinales has a similar issue.

    I guess Vinales also inherited Lorenzo’s crew chief, whereas Marquez has been with Santi Hernandez since 2011. So whatever Marquez says will be communicated to the team through Santi as a filter. Vinales is dealing with a crew chief who had been with Lorenzo since 2008 so they need to learn to understand each other.

    Yes, that is the same Santi Hernandez who got Marquez black flagged at PI in 2013 because he couldn’t count.
