He is still working on race set up.

Just as certainly, Marquez still hasn't proven himself, jury is still out.

They were supposed to fix that Italian turd in the dry, but it seems what they've actually managed to do, is get rid of its relative speed in the wet or mixed track condition

If if if if, Pedrosa off the chamionship by 18 points. If he'd taken 2nd at PI he'd be champion now.
Kind of a wacky final race.

I was gutted, too, that the real showdown at Valencia never came.

But Jorge and Pedro both had 2 DNF's this year, and of these both made one mistake on their own, while the other was out of their hands (taken out by another rider).

Lorenzo had one hell of a crash today, I'm glad he was okay.

I doubt that if Lorenzo had to only finish 5th to win the championship that he would have taken any risks. There was no such pressure, and we was just going for the win.

Bring on 2013.

What ifs are totally pointless.......what if Spies could ride, what if Stoner didn't bust his bones, what if Ducati could build a decent bike..........

And I am sure Rossi could give a fuck. He finished in one piece, he probably can't wait to sit his butt on the Yamaha.

Just an ironic observation, settle down bras.

I don't think Rossi, in his mind, has anything to prove on the Ducati at the end of this season. He gave it 2 years, and apparently they couldn't improve the bike enough for him to be competitive (like I'm sure he hoped in the beginning).

Of course, next year, on the Yamaha, we will find out if he still IS competetive.
