Hi Chris,

Savadori has said he did not see the pedrosa incident and knew nothing about it until he hit pedrosa's bike.
I'm pretty sure those airbags and that fence blocked his eyesight.

Congrats to Jorge though

As for Rat boy, if he keeps riding like that either he or another rider will get seriously hurt

Let's see what happens next weekend.

Best

Jon

Hi Chris,

They've just shown it from another camera angle and it looks like they may have air bags or tyres in front of the fence. I'm not a rider, but the positioning of it just looks dangerous

Flat out straight that Jon, nothing prior to that crash, since then they have had the large air bags in place. A fence can never be right, will have to have a look at that!

Track design that

Hi Chris

They've just shown the corner where that crash happened and the fencing they've put up because of that crash, on first glance that does not look safe at all

As well as age I think the Styrian GP last year finished him off, one very, very, very lucky man that day

One lucky, lucky, lucky man

Same as mentioned, seems like an age since the last race

I think it's overdue tbh, though can't blame him for delaying the inevitable.
Very sad to see the death of Hugo Millan a couple of weeks back.
Can't wait for the next race, seems like its been a age !

Five seconds a lap with the same talented rider, most Sunday sports bike riders would be lapped by a wsbk rider on like for like bikes in half a dozen laps.

Like Colin Edwards once said, if somebody said a MotoGP bike would be faster with encrusted diamonds on it, it would be covered in them, he also referred to a WSB as riding round in an armchair at the time in comparison

Few million quid gets you a few tenths of a second

Technology has moved on miles, pretty amazing when you can buy an R1 straight from the shop and itís around 5 seconds slower round a track than a WSB whoís suspension costs more than the R1

MM over a second a lap faster, yes a lighter more powerful bike but also 10 times harder to ride hence why so few are successful. Also worth bearing in mind that lap time would put JR last in a full race.

Few have made that switch and fewer still successfully, be nice to see him try all the same.
