    Sure they're fun, pretending it's a different day. I'm just glad they're hosting everything a day early!
    Beware the festive dog; drive soothingly over the grease-mud, for therein lies the skid demon.

    Put Josh Brookes on Aleix's vacant RS-GP. Even just for a photo op. Priceless!

    Possibly, and one would hope. Scott definitely brings more "colorful" expression to the mix, and less of the King's English.

    They finally gave Lowes "at least one bike" equal to Espargaro at Brno. His problem has been adapting to MotoGP braking which he can learn on older equipment, especially if he is likely to crash it.
    I'd expect Redding to be on roughly equal equipment to AE41.

    With riders varying in size, weight, and riding style there are almost always detail differences between teammates' rigs regardless of brand. Rider A likes the new swingarm, Rider B does not. The former is a hard late-braker while the latter carries more entry speed. Wheelbases, ride heights, and suspension setup can be really different to name but a few parameters. Engine mapping, engine braking, what a headache. It's damn near like Burger King!

    If anything, Scott Redding is taller than EsA and certainly heavier. We ran into SR in the Mugello paddock this year, it seemed like he is the same height as me at 6'3". He is a big boy alright.
