How was Estoril? MotoLiam Explains All!
Although this is pretty funny, there's just way too much that went down in Estoril for me to really capture at the moment. I can't believe what happenned in the race! Not only that, but the feelings throughout the paddock are running rampant. There's more tension now than at any other point of the season, and this is partially due to the stress that is coming off of all the crews as they wait for plans to be finalized with riders and sponsors for next year. So many people are playing a waiting game, and not knowing what you're doing next year, or the off-season this year, is wreaking havoc within some teams. It's a little ruthless, as people start looking for reasons to do or say something to make themselves look better, and you start seeing people putting themselves and their interests before what is best for the team. Personally, I just want to put myself in a position where I can do the most good, and be of the most benefit for a team. Not to mention the stress in some of the garages! You have no idea what it's like for the Repsol Honda team right now.
I'm moving apartments this week, and the internet is not set up at the new place yet. I won't be online much for the next few days, and then next week I'll be at Valencia for the ultimate round of the greatest season in recent history. Internet unlikely. We'll be in touch. One thing is for sure. This is shaping up to be the most incredible season I've ever seen, much less been a part of. Hearty congratulations to my rider, Alex Hofmann, for besting his practice times during the race and being the first Ducati to cross the finish line! Awesome! I hope we can carry this momentum with us to the next and final race of the season.
