Turn 3 at Sepang, and they all do that sir. That is your actual genyouwine power slide, drifting the rear to point the bike towards turn 4, a little further along. That turn is famous/notorious for it.

Similar to Turn 3 at Catalunya: sweeping right-hander leading to a straight.

They all quit at some point.... Even I quit after 6 years roadracing, well before I had the chance to rise into the international ranks.

Really hoping 2013 delivers. I think MotoGP will unfortunately be struggling for its entire existence within 5-10 years, and in order to turn that boat around it'll need people, who are interested in the sport, and first of all you need hard and exciting racing to get their attention. Right now it's there, on paper at least.

I have a feeling your idea of "Delivers" means Rossi wins.

I really don't care who wins, but I'm hoping it will remain unclear to everybody until the last corner of the last race. Could be asking too much, though.

Same top 10 riders since 2008... Yawn...

We need more fresh blood and 2nd rate factory sponsored rides.

Four or more (depending on how you rank them) of the top 10 when not even in motogp in 2008.

Less than 24 hours until the motogp bikes take to the track to kick off the season.
