Luthi on the other hand is the back it in king right now.
I wasn't saying Tito or Zarco never did dude, But they do did it towards the end of the race, keep in line, save them, then go for it the last five laps, That's when both Tito used to and Zarco does now to clear of into the sunset.
Go back to last year with Sam, a different bike I know but he was backing it in every available corner, started well and then dropped off with the rubber second half.
Move forward to Qatar he was more in line with the tyres at Argentina and COTA he had totally got it sussed Backing it in towards the end when it matters.
Jerez again and he won the race.
But he seems to have gone back to his old backing it in days as of late, and guess what he is throwing any chance of a title away with his rubber.
I wish I had time to go back and rewatch and make sure this isn't just in my head. But it looks like this is my last day off till we have that bevvy in shiverstone so much more important things to do.

I guess comparison of Tito from last year is not reflective because from the off his title defence was impeded by his dislike of the new Kalex. To me, his style is not dissimilar to Lowes albeit slightly tidier, but in his title winning year although he rode loose he certainly, as you say was able to pull the pin in the final third. As I say, tyre durability doesn't tend to be so much of an issue in Moto2 although obviously you do need to manage the rear. Remember backing in is a slide as opposed to lighting up the tyre but sideways in when it's so late on the engine braking and brakes isn't necessarily the fastest way around a racetrack. Lowes reminds me of Stalker who always looks the fastest rider on the racetrack when it's not necessarily the case. Sam's seat of the pants style will certainly need to be modified for the precision required to be fast on a MotoGP bike.

Enjoy your ale PG.
