Eh Up Terry
That crystal ball is working well on most predictions but give it a good shake and get the snow back up to the top and look again
( only joking)
Yamaha always busy behind the scenes making tiny improvements and keeping quiet about them, 2 awesome riders on board who rarely moan and who come alive on race day only. Honda are always quick to up the budget and try something radical, sometimes it works and other times not, its 2 riders are not as predictable as Yamaha's over a season, We have to give Marquez a settling in period.
Ref Hayden, always liked the guy, was spectacular on a Honda 990 "backing in in" years ago and won his title with consistent points scoring rather than ballsy wins but his fire has gone, he can't lead any more and accepts he is always the 2nd man on the team ( Rossi, Stoner, Rossi again and now Dovi), no place for also rans in GP, he should grab Edwards hand and go off and try WSB or AMA again.
WSB, Melandri has the ability no doubt (although his titles are years ago) but the big budget BMW threw at him for the last while is gone and he's now on a satellite Gold bet team ( they tell you its factory supported but its never the same as "factory") so he will have to push harder and when he pushes the limit he checks out various gravel traps.....
Rea is a hot head, I watch him race from the start of his career on Irish roads, always dazzling but NEVER consistent and if he is leading the field by 8 seconds he still pushes and crashes. He never looked at Max and saw the calm way to notch up points each Sunday and be in contention come year end.
Sykes is a joy to watch but this style of flat out from the line every time and then running out of tyres after 16 laps with 6 to go and then fading is getting frustrating, hope he tries a new tactic this year
