    Lucy you got some splainin to do

    The flag feel and Vettel had won the race. I took my closing notes and then wrote and posted my race summary. From the feeds I follow there was no hint of the dust up that would follow in the Red Bull camp. Dust up may not be the best description but what clever phrase do you use to describe how a 1-2 finish in a full length Formula 1 Grand Prix can be something that is not a cause for celebration but a thing that could rock the leading team.

    Team orders have always been around in Formula 1 even when they were legal. In the past Reb Bull has eschewed them allowing the drivers to sort things out for themselves for the most part. The lack of chatter on the Red Bull feed led all who were following lap times and the clear setup for a pass develop and then be executed to think this was more of the same.

    Over in the Mercedes GP camp, as I previously posted, it was clear there were team orders. Brawn has had them even when they weren't technically legal for teams. Jenson Button owes his championship crown to them.

    I don't like them. They get in the way of racing. I know you have to finish the race to win and team orders allow for tyres and fuel loads to be managed. Yet the get in the way of head to head racing.

    I like them and many times wish they were in place. If they had been in place for BMW Motorrad Motorsport last season they might have had a championship instead of a P2 in the manufacturers hunt. Racing got in the way of winning.

    Either way Vettel has done some splainin and I suspect he will have more to do until the end of the next race. The theme to follow out of this is not team orders, like them or hate them they will be around for ever, it is how teams manage them. Some level of trust was broken at Red Bull with today's 1-2 finish. How will they deal with that.

    Lucy was lucky; she had a laugh track playing while she was splainin to Rickie.

    Continuation of chassis and engine design within the hallowed halls of BMW took on a new pace in the mid-to-late 1930s. Motorcycling was a rising tide of popularity.

The 1936 BMW R 5 and 1937 R 51 became two such benchmark machines. ....More

    SBK

    A strong start at Motorland Aragon for BMW. Melandri and Davies locked down P1,2 ahead of Sykes and Laverty in the opening practice session. Laverty would trade places with Melandri for Qualifying 1 while Davies and Sykes held position. BMW Motorrad GoldBelt Team has to continue from where they have started.

    FWIW

    WorldSBK

    Mid 70s and sunny sky with light breezes is the weather forecast for Motorland Aragon this weekend. The result should be good racing and from the opening two sessions BMW fans should feel sunny. BMW is one of three manufactures on the front row after Qualifying 1.

    Aprilia 50 pts. (+5 from 2012)
    The defending champs and big winners at Phillip Island are on top once again after Q1; however, not in the dominate fashion they finished the previous weekend with. Factory team leader took the provisional pole with teammate Guintoli back in P6 and support rider Fabrizio in P11. They will spend a good deal of time tuning for Superpole while trying to decide if they have problems or the competition have found solutions.

    BMW 29 pts. (-2)
    Leading up to this weekend the BMW Team had a solid round of testing leading into this weekend. The results have yielded early fruit. Davies appears comfortable with the bike and team at this point and his results today reflect that. BMW fans hope for a 1-2 finish in both races but the thing to watch for is can Davies carry the load if Milandri falters. The early signs are he can. Melandri's race weekend condition is a question mark for me. Testing is punishing but not in the same way that a race weekend is. This is Melandri's first race weekend after shoulder surgery. How will he hold up in Race 2 after all that will have gone on before the flag falls?

    Kawasaki 22 pts. (-7)
    Sykes is provisional P3 and Baz P9. The team had a dominate round of testing coming into the weekend so they may be scratching their heads a bit at where they are at the end of Friday. They weather sounds wonderful for making tyres last. That has been the remaining problem for Sykes.

    Honda 17 pts. (-5)
    Rea is listed P5 with Haslam P11. I have not seen the HRC press release to gleen anything from it. I supsect they are still sorting out electronic issues. I am rooting for the to get behind the BMWs and ahead of the competition.

    Suzuki 16 pts. (+12)
    The dark horse riders for the weekend are Camier P7 and Cluzel P8 and the horses are not that dark. Suzuki is shaking off the corporate fog it has been in for several years and the signs are good for racing. FIXI Cresent is a sold dangerous team. They could snatch P3 in either race. As long as they are snatching podiums from Aprilia I am fine with that.

    Ducati 11 pts. (-41)
    Checa P12 is the first Ducati on the grid after Q1. What is shocking is the gap between P1 and P12 is 2'00.004! Teammate Badovini is back on track but slower two slots behind. It looks like a long weekend for Ducati.

    Formula 1

    Mercedes were fastest out of the box in FP1 while a Ferrari with Massa at the wheel took FP2. I will leave you to sort through the figures and read the press conference and quotes and draw your conclusions. Mine was drawn halfway though the first practice session.

    Rosberg was solidly on the top of the FP1 time chart almost a half second ahead of Hamilton, his teammate. Webber and Vettel, in that order were sparing for position and the rest of the field was sorting itself out in rather predictable order. After early fast laps for bragging rights the teams headed out for the second half on heavy loads and hard tyres. Tyre graining appeared quickly and will be the challenge to deal with once again providing us with the theme to follow over the weekend.

    I have not a clue who will win this weekend. The driver I will follow will be Massa. This is not a nod for him to win. Rather, I am very interested to see how he manages himself and his car this weekend, if he can improve his P5 in the standings and where he leaves China in relation to Alonso.

    There were hopes for a new beginning for BMW and its post-war motorcycles after 1945. With a desire for recovery and a return to growth, the company was at first banned from motorcycle manufacture but was then given a 60cc limit, which it didn?t take up. However, when this limit was raised to 250cc, this paved the way for a new single-cylinder machine known as the R 24 ....More
