Comments

some 65 points or so will not happen as long as he keeps his head screws on. He better get some room for a huge trophy and other related silverware in his house.

While missing both rounds of a race is unlikely for Carlos, a practice crash or DNFs ala Miller, a few years ago are possible. Again, not likely. I hope Checa can pull it off. He quietly came to the series. Put in some rough years and worked his way to the top. Credit to all the top GP ex-pats who have moved over to the series, none have slagged it off. It is a different set of parameters than GP and as we have seen, even someone like Laverty is a true threat where as that would never happen in GP. Not because he is a lesser rider, but because the rules are stacked differently.
