Ek dink die Sachsenring is maar kort en vol draaie so die Ducati's het gesukkel ?

Ek dink jy is reg.  Die Hondas is by uitstek goed met die "point and squirt" bane, terwyl beide Ducati en Yamaha beter doen op die lang sweeps.  Al wat my redelik aan die wonder het is die groot verskille van baan tot baan.

Marc en Honda het weer gister gewys wat in hulle sit.

Om die Duitse GP 8 keer na mekaar te wen is fantasties.

Maar hy is amper gewen deur n Duitser op n standaard Yamaha R1 met n Kerker op. :eek7:
Wel defnitief standaard brieke ook want hy het omtrent elke rondte wyd gehardloop by die eerste draai  :biggrin:

Yamaha het per ongeluk Ducati brieke opgesit.

Danie, jy moet my vergewe, maar ek is erg damoerin vir Yamaha op die oomblik.  Ek dink elke donnerse onderdeel op daai twee M1's is deur vakleerlinge by die Skool vir Blindes in Sjina vervaardig.  Rossi se M1 het twee keer gekalf.  Een keer tydens FP1 en een keer tydens FP2.  Dan moes hy met die ander fiets wat die ander raam het ry want daar was nie genoeg rame nie.    Dat hy en Vinales die ren klaar gemaak het is suiwer genade, geluk en gom.

I see Darryn Binder will not be racing, due to some medical reason, not sure what.
May the bridges I burn light the way...

His season is stuffed anyway, he might as well heal properly.

Still sad though

Not the way I planned on spending my last weekend in South Africa. Crashed my supermoto on Saturday and broke my thumb, had it pinned yesterday and will be back ASAP !

Eish, KTM can't be happy.

KTM se gat!  They should give Darryn a factory ride, then they can complain if he is injured.  Looking at how the Moto3 KTM factory team is performing, I am pretty sure they are wishing they gave Darryn the ride instead of Antonelli.

Brad did well, I think.  10th on the grid to 6th before the Moto2 race was red flagged was a good one.  Then he did well in the wet 2nd part until Morbidelli knocked him so wide he lost 5 or 6 places.

I had Brad for 5th place. Purely a gut feel/optimism and thought for a few laps he was actually going to pull it off

I suspect I&Horse got the Binders mixed up.

By the way, Brad started 9th on the grid. Yes he was doing damn well, good to see some of his rear wheel steering style coming back.

True.  He qualified 10th, but started 9th due to a penalty of another rider.

He certainly seems to be getting the hang of the bike.  I like!  He is looking better everytime he races.

Brno testing yesterday and Rossi fastest.  The new "aerofairing" on that Yamaha looks awesome and a far cry from the contraption on the Ducati.  He also tested new forks which is all very secret.  I believe it is a rumour that the stanchions were supplied by a well know European manufacturer!   >:D

Are you sure? I thought it was supplied by that Indian manufacturer. What's the name again... uhm... Mahindra! Oh wait, no...  >:D
