I Ride: Shanks pony.
Safety commission decided to revert to the chicane used last year, I'm glad because the one introduced for this race was awful.
Only fp3 times will stand for qualifying.

Unprecedented? So about all the laughing at Jack. Jack gets the last laugh as the only one to practice on the correct course. Gotta love it.

It's a big job for him to change his style, but an expert will do it given time.

Can he ever conquer the demons in his mind is the problem.
Demons in his mind?

Oh stop already with the theatrics.

I was wondering if someone in one of the other garages made a comment to him.

But, it may also simply be Cal being his usual self.

I think since he broke his collarbone, and then crashed immediately afterward bending the metal, he's fucked in the head.

You never know how he's going to do in a race since then.

If everything is perfect, he's ahead of everyone.

Anything wrong at all and he's way back.

Demons in his mind == fucked in the head

Great to see Lorenzo near the top of the pops, even if it's only Friday. Hopefully he will continue making progress.
Consistency? I think that is his strong suit.
Weak in the head? If I recall correctly, he has notched a world championship since breaking his collarbone.

I wouldn't call him fucked in the head for racing with a broken collarbone. Racing with a broken collarbone is simply a sign of the dedication and drive that allowed him to get to that level. That's why you don't see hacks like us out there because even if some of us have the skill, we don't have the dedication. He did what a number of world champions have done...and that is why those guys were able to become world champions.

You should read this forum more often if you don't because it's been discussed what affects his performances and it has nothing to do with what's in his head. It's about what makes contact with the ground underneath him; it's the tires.

If I had as much success as he had early on, why I'd never get married. Why pass up the ability to bury my dick into any pussy within 1 inch of me whenever I want?
