Gee, how frustrating it is to watch Miller. Half superstar, but half flamin' idiot.
In the British GP last night he looked a real probability for a podium but then came the familiar brain fail.

I admire Jack but he is going to struggle to retain his seat at LCR. Last night was shades of Anthony West, first opportunity to show everyone what he can really do.....but brain fade got in the way.
He came from way too far back for that to have been a legitimate overtaking manoeuver, I reckon he missed his braking marker and left it too late to go to the outside so was committed to the inside with obvious consequences.

yep great race to watch!
after receiving the penalty points and copping backlash from his team, I hope he still has the balls to perform and continue to take risks!

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... That's it for me.

What are your predictions for Mr Miller for tomorrow at the Island?? I would guess Westy is praying for rain:)

Five laps at best.
If it rains, he and Ant will up near the front but Miller will fall and bring West down.
Damian will score points.

What an amazing race! Looks like the championship is going down to the wire in Valencia and 'young Jack' redeemed himself with a good result to take the last point.

The best premier class GP I can recall since France '86.
In Tito Rabat, Jack will have a teammate next year we can really compare him with at Marc VDS. By the way, is 'Marc' a relation (son or grandson) of Count van der Straten who ran an F5000 team in the '70s?

Yes Peter, Marc is the son of Baron VDS who ran the F5000 team with Peter Gethin amongst others.

Argentine GP this morning.
Guess what happened? Why do I torture myself so?

"Jack Miller admits he became too overconfident after passing Jorge Lorenzo in Sunday's Argentina MotoGP". I think Miller is becoming a challenger for Marquez in the falling off stakes at least. He needs to take heed of the rookie 17yo Malaysian rider Pawi in the Moto3 race who smoked everyone and won by nearly 30 seconds!

At least he was very competetive until he crashed. An old theory in motorcycle racing - It is easier to teach someone who is naturally fast to stop crashing than to teach someone to be fast. I genuinely believe he will make it to the top of this game - maybe not world champion but a consistent top runner, it is a hard long road. We can only continue to give him the support he needs along the way.

Yes Casey threw it up the road quite a few times when riding for LCR and before! With the lack of Aussie riders currently in Motogp I would certainly like JM to do well. Hopefully he can do better next week at Austin.
