The race started as expected in the rain, but the question was, what mix
of rain tires should be mounted. For election was a soft compound and a
hard one. The problem with this question was how if and how quickly it
Stefan played it safe and chose the soft wet tires. Crutchlow, Rossi and
Lorenzo chose the hard version.
Stefan started quite well, go forward, while the riders were passed with
the hard tires to the back. Bradl even went as 14 past Lorenzo, who was
even temporarily 16.Initially Stefan could stay tuned to the likes of
Pedrosa, but then got drier and drier conditions becoming problems with
the electronics.The traction control handle too much and regulated too
much though Stefan TC as far back turned as she could. But he just did
to acceleration, although the rain tires offered good grip at full leanangle.
After 1/3 of racedistance the rider came with the hard rain tires. Rossi
and Lorenzo went gradually back to their opponents over and rode
faster. Stefan was also snatched by Crutchlow, the first lay behind him.
Cal fly through the field against him, no one had a chance, his Honda
accelerated irresistible. Crutchlow ran over fist as the finish line, Stefan
rescued two more points than 14 finish. Teammate Bautista probably
had similar problems and came away empty.
Bradl is currently on the 16th place in the standings, the injury-related
Zero points Sachsenring cost him the 12th place, which he held until
in 14 days it comes at Silverstone on, there may also be a flag to flag
race. We will see!
