Here's the real one:


Apart from that, maybe some heads rolled in the software dept. and they finally coded a failsafe for when a sensor stops sending data?

Yep I noticed they had some real funny way to say "when the sensor quit, the engine went straight to Launch into Orbit-mode!"

The best way for DP to say 'Up yours' to HRC is to win every race left, rest assured he's gonna give it all he's got.

Pedrosa was pogo-ing a lot on the flyer -- it was a lot faster than any of his other laps and it looked like he was close to losing it. Things are still close pace-wise between 26 and 93.

Kinda. MM steps the back out routinely, but Pedrosa doesn't look comfortable with the bike moving all over the place. I think that's where his size is a handicap.

90% of the slow-mo shots are boring, but the one with MM moving across the bike while the front is in the air crossed up, then bringing it down while it's still crossed up to initiate turn-in -- that was beautiful.

Edit: ha, that said, here's one of Pedrosa doing a milder version (turn 2?): http://youtu.be/KXqe7x-_cyk?t=1m7s

Yea, I just meant MM is usually looser and a bit more on the edge when he puts down his fast laps whereas DP is a little more composed. It seems like DP needs to get closer to the edge more often.

And why does Dani need to say "up yours" to HRC exactly? What did they do to wrong him?

I have to chuckle at the Dani fans going on about him getting "fired up" against MM and saying "Up Yours" to HRC.

Dani is effectively out of his 8th straight premier class MotoGP championship. And that fact alone would seem to preclude him or Alberto getting too mouthy with HRC about a small engineering oversight on their part.

But hey. Keep bringing the funny!

FP2 was a good one old DP got it working. Rossi in there for a bit, then Cal pulled one out. Nice one!

Interesting FP3 with threats of rain and light sprinkles throughout.

Several riders were still able to improve their times.
