Despite the rumours to the effect that Kallio will be awarded Smith's ride if he beats him, Pit Beirer has maintained that KTM will honour Bradley's two year contract. More significantly, he stressed Mika is using a brand new chassis this weekend which he has been busy developing, together with ugraded internals which neither Bradley or Pol have been given, so unlike the competition between Redding and Petrucci last year at Pramac, they are not on identical bikes. In addition to which, Kallio has chosen this circuit to wild card because as was the case at the Red Bull Ring, he has done such an extensive amount of testing the track.

Nonetheless, it is very entertaining watching him going all out to beat the factory riders. Credit to him. Finishing in the top ten in Austria was a great result - I've always liked Kallio. Saying that, I knew he was going to lob it down the road in Q2.

Regardless of that Arrab I think it's not unfair to say that until KTM get new riders their results will be held back(like tech3s) by their current riders. I said that at the start of the year and it looks like they're sadly going to prove me right.

This fog is looking firmly entrenched, could be zero warm up practice if it doesn't lift soon and worst case scenario cancelled races

Strange decision. Should have axed more warm up time and left the races full distance.

Very beneficial when riding with a broken limb though.

Very strange, moto 3 is the only race to lose laps 13 instead of 20, which is not 2/3 race distance, I wonder if the points will be awarded as normal?
Just a thought, will the later warm up practice be more beneficial to the moto GP riders? It will be a fair bit warmer than their usual slot.

13 covers ⅔ for 18-20 lap races. 14 covers 21-23...
