I like the video glance of VR getting his 'apecar' on two wheels. Endearing. Displays some good edge grip ;)
Tire development advisor while racing is interesting, hope he has his mitts on the 2nd 2014 tire iteration - could be good for everyone (except HRC?). I like how it could even up the skew that happened w the 1st 2014 tire...good riddance to that thing for all but the handful of tire-eating tracks.
(And to beat you to it, please spare us the 'influencing the championship' conspiracy theories...Bstone is working to provide a tire construction w 4 compounds that is balanced enough to work on all bikes at all tracks and w a smaller budget than is preferable).
