Doesn't matter how he rides. He keeps winning races from last on the grid and they'll put him on a sponsored team even if he kills someone.

The more I see he really just doesnt acknowledge that other people are on the track. In his mind he has already passed them eventhough there're in front of him or have position on him, he's already written them off in his head. Not a bad skill to have in such a sport. I like Cal's comment, he really is'nt worried about anything that bothers others. He puts it all behind him, whatever it is, even when its not and just goes forward, on or off the track.

Here he says to the guy in front try stoping on this freshly painted wet strip of paint, nudge.

good find

all this over one weekend of racing confirming he's as talented and fast as anyone we've seen come through the lower ranks for quite a while and absolutely deserves his MotoGP ride (unlike Bradley) but the man has got to learn a little respect for his fellow competitors.

Not a man. A 19 year old kid with the racing world at his feet and a legion of fans. It's bound to make it difficult to regulate that personality.

You could see his pit crew telling him to slow down at one point in the race. I think the win was more about giving race direction the finger for him. A bit of " you, I'll still win".

the average age of the combat soldier in Vietnam was 19, n - n - n nineteen!!

Respect for ones competetors woudl be nice, but only respect for the bike is required. Is he smart enough to know the differnce.

He tends to have several out of seat moments and front end tucks during races and he's been quite good at saving them on the 600, he'll have a whole nother thing coming now.
