Here is a tactic that I try to get across to are students quite often, but I think this quote sums it up quite nicely. "Andrea Dovizioso tried to explain what he had learned from following Lorenzo the last couple of races: what he could see was that Lorenzo was braking earlier but carrying more corner speed, and this, paradoxically, gave him more margin. Where Dovizioso, Ben Spies and Cal Crutchlow were all on the limit in mid-corner, Lorenzo had bought himself a little safety thanks to his corner entry, carrying more speed through and out of the corner, yet risking less". Bottom line, try not to rush into the turns, brake hard but with room to spare for a very controlled corner entry and exit. Discuss.
