wow, hard to believe that people are still upset over that incident in 2006.

I am not going to make any predictions until after the next practice session, but I would imagine that a factory Honda, or two, will be on the podium come race day.

What gets lost in that story is that was a great race, and I'd encourage people with MotoGP subscriptions to view it, or view it again.

I'm not still upset about it, but I haven't forgotten it either. Pedrosa earned his way out of the doghouse every time he beat Stoner, especially 2012 Sachsenring. I'm now neutral toward Dani.

DP and CS had a mutual admiration thing that DP won't likely have with MM.
He could get stupid again if provoked by MM, but that remains to be seen.

Maybe I am sounding like a broken record but it's funny that Hayden himself has let all that stuff go but "fans" can't seem to get over it.

Back the present. Took all of 3 minutes into the practice session for me to be completely over hearing anything coming from Nick and Gavin. Can't wait til the race to try out the commentator volume reduction option.

MM didn't seem all the far from crashing at the end of the session. He also had some pretty serious wheelies going on.

There's 4/10ths between Dovi and Nicky but 4 other riders are sandwiched between them.

Worked for me in FP1. At the bottom of the video screen there's a "mixer" button. You can adjust the commentary slider to zero -- joy!

And no extra charge -- well done Dorna.

Re-watching now and not seeing the mixer button. Did you watch FP1 live? Maybe it's only there then?

Yeah, watched live, and now see that the replay doesn't have the mixer button. Too bad, I only watch a handful of races live, so I guess I won't be getting away from Nick Harris as much as I wanted.

I watched the whole session without commentary not realizing I could have switched it on.
I re-watched it with commentary and quickly found it rather annoying.

Often times they will be yaking about stuff without paying any attention to what's on screen.

That's only because you are not insane.

I also don't watch many races live so I hope the can transition to having the sanity switch to delayed viewing. Often some features aren't available for FP so maybe that is the case. I have sent motogp.com an email. They are usually pretty quick about replying.

It appears the multi-screen mode will be available from QP but I think that will be an upgrade ($$$) feature after Qatar.

Those who think its necessary, could IMO go to Motogp 2006 thread to discuss that incident. Or just get over it.

At some point, you'd think people would get over the fact that some people can't get over this...

Anybody still think Rossi lost it, was too old to ride a GP bike at the pointy end ?

There never was and there will never be 100% certainty for anyone to podium but for Rossi can't be written off as some suggested.

Lets hope for a great race

I temper my listening by remembering what Speed commentary sounds like.
The best Speed could manage wasn't as good as the worst Nick and Gavin can do.
And I am not such a fan of any one rider or nationality that favoritism bothers me.

Nobody liked Screamin' Johnny Green either, but he didn't bother me. Maybe my hearing empairment is a good thing?
