    Nobody picking up on Fenati and his speed so far? The bad boy returns!! If he keeps his head on straight he could be a significant prospect for the Moto3 championship, what a story that would be....
    That is the key question. Has he learned anything and is his head on straight. He clearly has talent, but has he learned not to behave as poorly as he used to. Sometime people learn, but some people just can't learn. We will see which of those he is.

    Behaved poorly? In what way? Don't get that at all!

    Considering the amount of abuse he's suffered over the last couple of years by both Aprilia and his Moto2 team from last year I think he's been amazingly tolerant and professional.

    Are you aware that the team he rode for last year never paid him, or his mechanics? That they were denied new/replacement/upgraded parts from KTM because they hadn't been paying their bills - so Sam rode half the year on a bike with a bent frame?

    The reference I made to keeping his head on straight was in relation to his tendency to try too hard and up crashing when at times he would perhaps be better off consolidating his position and accumulate points.

    He's now back in a team that appreciates and supports him, an environment in which I believe he will thrive so I'm anticipating that the ruinous past couple of seasons will be put behind him - he is quite capable of putting a season together and winning a championship, he's done it before, all he needs is the right equipment and the right people around him.

    The poor behavior comment was about the other rider in the post, Fenati. That is why I bolded that part of your post. Sorry if it was too subtle.
    I have no issue with Lowes. But I am not sure he has the talent Fenati has. But unlike Lowes, Fenati seems to have behavioral issues.

    His Moto GP years with Aprilia will serve him well, he's had a hard baptism of fire with that crew, then a shit time on his last MOTO 2, i think this is his season to excel, i hope so, those brothers have talent.

    I can get it on my old Android set-top box, which pretends to be a tablet, but not my new one which uses Android TV. Can't get it on my AppleTV, but can on my iPad.

    I don't bother with either - just stream it using Airplay from motogp.com via the internet browser on my Mac mini to the AppleTV - works dandy. You can even use the remote to pause, FF/Rew, etc.
