"Obviously that helped," says Tavo. "But it's a blessing and a curse, because he expects higher standards from me. People criticise him, but he's the best negotiator on Earth, and he's been incredibly straight up with us."
It's not just Bernie he has to please. It's the disillusioned US fans, who haven't had a race here since Indianapolis '07, two years after the tyre nonsense when only three teams raced. And it's the MotoGP teams, who are coming here too. But with Schwantz's help, plus corners like these, they should be merry bikists. Turns 15 to 18 are listed as three bends, but are really just one triple-apex monster that'll fray their thick knee-sliders. They'll have a brief rest between 19 and 20, before launching themselves back onto the pit straight and up the hill again to Turn One.
