You have to remember BB33 is a rookie, I am sure he is doing WAY better than expected.

Because he won a race in his rookie season we seem to think he has it all sorted out, he is still learning with every outing.

He has the race speed for sure, but lack the experience...........he will get there.

DB I think the pig of a bike he is on makes him having to ride way over the limits.

Agree with everything you say.

I like BB because he is calculated while ruthless in execution. He certainly wasnt that today. Was like a raging bull. Think he lost his composure.  Hope he will return to his old self and forget about today. Wasnt pretty to watch.

In his post race interview he basically admits as much. Combined with not taking the extra 16kg of fuel into account.
He also noted that he took T11 faster than even in quali.... so a bit of red mist.

In the man's own words:

Brad Binder:
I felt really, really good today. I made a decent start but then lost the front into Turn 11 and had a big head shake of the bike. I was thinking that was close but then tucked the front going into Turn 13. I was a little bit wild. I tried to restart but then crashed again. So, not a great race but Im happy because I had such a good feeling with the bike, and weve worked hard to get to that. Unfortunately we go home with nothing today but well try again in Barcelona. Well need to learn quickly there and if I take one thing from this weekend then its that a good qualification makes life so much easier! Well try for that again next weekend.

What a race!

Pol really survived well under pressure and deserved the podium, despite me wanting the Yammie on there.

Those Yamahas are on rails. Except Rossi's. >:D
Quartarara was very unlucky "stepping" over the line. :(

That was the fifth time ....

Brad and Darryn both looking good at Barcelona. Brad going from 21st inFP1 to topping FP2 with less than 2 min to go and then being pipped by Morbideli and Zarco.
Brad now 3rd in combined times.

It is scary how quickly and without warnings some of the fronts are washing out on this slippery track. I think it does favour the guys who like to back it in and drift - BB was missing this in the grippy last two races that tended to want to push and tuck the front.

Yeah, not the best of qualifiers for BB, but making it through to Q2 second time in a row speaks to improvement. Holding thumbs for their races tomorrow. :ricky:

I think he will be fine - 4th row not such a big deal for him. I think he is being far more measured this weekend and will pay off.

That second corner - the first left-hander taken on a cold left hand side of the tyre - is the one to watch. Seems to catch a lot of them out

Cmon Binder!
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)
