Jerez MotoGP: Pedrosa leads wet second practice

Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa set the fastest time during a wet free practice 2 at Jerez today. Ducati rider Valentino Rossi was the early pace setter, with a best time of 1'51.440, but was unable to hold off Spaniard Pedrosa in the later stages of the session. Winner of last year's wet Jerez race Jorge Lorenzo set the third fastest time...

TV coverage hold back

Tried to watch practice on Eurosport they had snooker on or some shit so waited till 10pm when it was on only to be dissapointed as they had changed the schedule (otherwise known as the lucky dip). There was no chance of watching it on BBC even on the red button, its a pain in the arse and sick of missing my favourite sport. I'm just gonna start buying the pissing DVD for xmas and watch it then cheaper than the TV licence and SKY subs.

Poor Stoenzo wants

the rules to be changed for flag to flag races (was he not the one that said stop changing the rules lately). He wants a rider to come in wet weather and make whatever tire changes he deems necessary. Remember he is the one that has made bad decisions for his tire choices, so his rantings about the rule to change would benefit him.

My take on this is you cannot allow a fast rider to go out and eat up his tire while getting ahead of others, whereas other riders who decided it's best to ride a bit slower to not crash and to save their tires to last the end of the race. Then allow that fast rider to come in and make change for same tires.

If you allow a rider to gain the lead by usiging his tires and then have him come in to change for the same tires, then that is unfair. The 60Mph slow down in pit lane can be made up easily as its not that much time. remember the others are riding around slowly because of the wet conditions.

Tire management and other factors must be part of a riders mentalitity to be a winner. Not to make rules to benefit only themselves.

Umm, is not the rule flag-to flag as it stands? The mooted change to a single bike per rider is what is going to eliminate the flag to flag rule.

Stoner has a great record in the rain in the premier class, btw, when not taken out by errant Italian missiles/torpedoes.

I know it must be hard Wosi

to define your arse from your elbow with your head stuck so far up your own rectal passage. Come and talk to me about racing in the wet when you've done so. I have, and I've won in such conditions. Your moped trip in the drizzle to the corner store for the News of the World and a pack of fags counts for jack shit.

As for my stance on rain being a great leveller being tosh, you will find I've been consistent on this point each time a moron like you mentions such - regardless of the position of your fallen sun god.

I've raced in the wet

at Brands, Cadwell, Lydden, Mallory, Snetterton, Donington to name a few, and I can tell you, in my personal experience that rain levels the playing field in terms of machinery, allowing rider ability to shine through. However, its only practice and no conclusions need be drawn at this time.
