It is nice to actually hear racers say what they think.  These days it is almost all PR approved talk.

This week's quali times already outpacing last week's by quite some.

Why do all the bikes have a wooly sock/sweatband thing around the brake and clutch master cylinders? To absorb leaks? To hide something from the camera?

They are to prevent spillage as the reservoir is not fully sealed, a small air vent passes/links to a labyrinth that lets the reservoir equal the atmospheric pressure outside (allows it to breath) so fluid can flow correctly to the pump in the master cylinder, under hard racing conditions the labyrinth catches fluid and returns it to the reservoir but some may find its way to the breather and spill out, the sock soaks up excess fluid...

On street bikes, they help block U/V rays that quickly deteriorate fluid quality and also turns the nice clear plastic reservoir yellow.

That's what we are hoping for.  I have watched most of the practices and PE44 has been in the gravel many times this weekend.  BB33 not once that I saw.  It really seems to me that Pol must be feeling the pressure of a teammate who can put in fast last laps and is good in a race.  Looking forward to the race.

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