I like that they blame it on Mary Spies. The Eye-ties don't like a mouthy opinionated woman, eh?
I saw an interview with Hayden Sr and he said "Nicky don't care 'bout money, just wants to have fun" or something like that.
And as for the women, ask Barbera.

+1! And I'd like to see the numbers whereby it costs them more to run a Moto3 bike than a Moto2 bike. Sounds like somebody peed in his sushi.

Thanks, but I think that may have been easier to "read" in German.

What I get out of that is Honda is whining because KTM and Mahindra are operating as factory teams and Honda think it should be all Van man teams.
And they Honda don't want to commit the resources to play at a factory level in both MotoGP and Moto3. Of course arguing that Moto3 is an "entry level" is justified if there isn't a Redbull Rookies Cup. That's still running right?
If so, RRC feeds Moto3 which feeds Moto2, which feeds MotoGP which closes all the doors that used to be paths to GP glory.
Rider salaries are too high? They are paying riders more than Bradl? really? I'd be pissed if I were Bradl. Sad.
I would have thought Mahindra would be driving costs down, not up.

Maybe someone can help me out with this. I thought the rider's job was to go as fast as his equipment allows. If the tires let go, slow down - that usually works for me!

Yes a pretty crappy translate for sure.

From the crash.net interview:
Eurosport talked about it quite a bit, its all left handed crashes, there are only 2 left handed turns and one has different temps over the other. Hopefully Julian Ryder may talk about it in his Soup column in more depth.

But trackside buildings block cool air in the non crashing left hand turn and the crashing turn is out in the open as the cool wind comes across it pulling the warm temps out of it causing it to have 5 degree cooler track temp.

Toby Moody even mentioned it to the Bridgestone guys and they said We'll be alright.
