I don't know how Gordon.
Must admit, my first reaction to the launch was active suspension.

Motorsport magazine ran the aero device on the swing arm past a couple of F1 engineers and they all say it is for generating downforce. There was one view from the front of the bike that made it look like a huge scoop hanging down with a wing profile on the underside.

Watching first practice for the Argentina round today, the commentators mentioned that the scoop on the swing arm has been approved on the basis that Ducati produced evidence that the device was for tyre cooling. It may well do just that to some small significance but is first and foremost an aerodynamic aid by anyones' definition surely?
Cal Crutchlow looked very quick and committed today as did Jack Miller. With 20 riders separated by less than second it promises to be good race on Sunday.

Honda presented their bike with the same device on it and declared it's primary function was to produce downforce. They were told it was illegal. They then re-presented the bike with it and said the primary function was tyre cooling and they are now allowed to run it.

Job done by Honda to show how daft the regulation is.

Well MM is still the man to beat! Does the team think that Lorenzo will ever get on terms with him ? after all it did take him a long time to get anywhere near Dovi and only then did he show a few bits of his old form when with Yamaha.

Well love him or hate him Marquez was in a different league today, also good to see the "old boy" up front and on the podium but WTF was that all about with Cal ?
As for Lorenzo I don't know what to think at the moment.

Cal must have moved as they would have reviewed the side on shot several times. It must have been tiny though as it was completely invisible from the front shot. It was the correct penalty under the rules but there does need to be some scope of severity added. As Hodgson says if a guy jumps from the back to the front then a ride through is far enough but not in those circumstances.

Shame as he was lapping at MMs pace in the last 3rd and, before the penalty, you could see he was just biding his time at the back of the group.

Great shame for Cal but the same penalty exists in many other motor sport disciplines as well. The MM steamroller continues, what a talent but that was feisty result for VR.

Surely that is what the penalty lane is for.

if he jumped from the third row into the lead I could understand it, but if he moved he did by centimenters.

I have read that Spencer just sat there unmoved when the team went to see him, I think honestly a man who was so useless in his late career and made umpteen excuses and fake injuries is not the right man to be a steward.

Someone like Schwantz or Doohan surely would be better. Or even more someone more current who has ridden these types of bikes a bit. Spencer has not.

I may be wrong as I haven't read the relevant rule but I expect it's a case of the only penalty that can be applied to a jump start is a drive through. The penalty lane is meant for on-track things like passing by running off track etc.

Cal is not happy reading the reports this morning...

He went too early. He has to pay the penalty. Surely the fact he's British should not make a difference?

If you can see him move in the footage fair enough, I simply could not.

COuld not care less where he is from really, I have no favourites.

Well a mistake from Marquez gave a chance to the old boy to have a win ! however good to see Rins ride a good honest race and prove that Suzuki can be a contender. Pity for Cal as he could have been on the podium and hopefully not too bruised !! Rossi also ran a good race right from the start but Rins was too strong on those last laps and Vali settled for second.
Lorenzo is not in a good place at the moment unfortunately and a DNF didn't help in this race.
