    Largely Academic

    Constructors championship. Huh. Margin of victory 5 points? It looks like that battle was won by Red Bull's second and third string riders. Bradley Smith scored 13 Constructors points, and Mika Kallio tallied 6 at the Red Bull Ring. Slammin' Sammy Lowes put a whopping 2 points on that same scoreboard during the entire season.
    So there you go!

    +1 imho the KTM road bikes remind me of a fluke multimeter. Nice bikes! I’ll take the droid look over pink-eyed BM’s.?

    They did pretty well using the Rotax lumps

    I agree with that. Aprilia and Aleix had very bad luck in some races and there were also several failures of reliability ... Sam Lowes was limited all year to be the red lantern and crawling on the floor on countless occasions ... has been of little help for the team points ...

    I think the potential of the bike is higher than what they have shown, but it is necessary to improve the focus of the races by the team, and hope that Redding will help the team, the development of the bike and the points ...
