Redding's vlog + onboard
These test mean nothing. Rea was the top in testing last year and guess who won the first race and super pole race last year? It was AB and he also et the lap record. He also crashed out of the lead in the second race. Testing means nothing.
Shots fired....and he's right
SBK, Fabrizio: “Davies? I don't understand why Ducati continues with him." | GPone.com
Looks like they're running the OE electronics? Or just the dash?
I gotta say that I agree with Fabrizio. He had one standout season a few years ago where he won a bunch of races in a row at the end, but that's it. To choose him over Bautista was just a ridiculous decision.
Is that what happened? I thought it was over money.
Yeah, I don't think Ducati chose Davies over Bautista. I think Bautista chose Honder so Duc kept Chaz.
I'm pretty sure Bautista chose Honda instead of Ducati. He had an offer before Davies did.
Davies salary for 2020 was almost double what Bautista's Ducati offer was, hence the dispute.
Davies is entering the second year of his two year deal.
I suppose I fell in line with the rest of the beeb and made a statement only 50% correct
So how did they choose him over Bautista?
Toprak is looking legit on that R1.
By not acknowledging Bautista's worth? Based on the 2019 results, there's no reason why he shouldn't have been given a contract worth more than Davies'.
Met him. Super humble and I think he's an amazing talent. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in GP after his contract is up.
I don't thing that makes logical sense.
Yamaha loses a few revs. Honda gains some with the new SP, which might get them into the hunt for a podium.
Surprised Kawasaki is not set at 10.5k to keep Rea from winning the title again.
Looks like Yamaha gained some? 14,700 to 14,950?
