Jorge very lucky at the start of the session on the wet ripple strip.

The Harsh Mistress claims Bradl and he was having a fast weekend too.

Rossi looks good for a podium finish. Problem is, so do 4 other riders.

Marc Marquez! Damn is that kid talented. Unbelievable.

What about the damn grass anyway? Bradl would have been fine if there wouldn't have been any grass!

Rossi laughed when he was told that, he had a big moment too, nearly lost it. When the track was wet he was top of the sheet by a long way, then in the closing seconds held pole for about 2 seconds before MM did his thing.

"Maybe HRC could put their test rider on Bradl's bike if he's not fit for Australia. Oh hang on, that's now Casey Stoner"

Bad design of the sensor/wire, and bad programming of ECU in case of sensor malfunction.

DP had surely done his part by crashing @ Sachsenring, but despite that he still had a good shot at the title, until HRC effectively screwed him. It was a bizarre incident, yes, but it's the factory's job to make sure something as stupid as this doesn't happen. Remember, Tomizawa and Jones were killed, when they suddenly went down in front of others, who could not avoid hitting them. It's really no joke, when somebody suddenly highsides in the middle of the race. I hope we are done with crashes as avoidable as this one.

edit. AND some of their engineers had warned about the possibility of this way back, but they did nothing.

It would be goddamn great to see Stoner vs Marquez, that's for sure! But CS already claimed he ain't gonna race.

If it is a wet race, I think the old man has a damn good shot. If it is dry, I think the kid will simply bag another win.

It would be great to see Stoner getting spanked by MM you guys mean. (I didn't start this discussion but I did bite). Stoner kept pace with JL and DP last year and lost out so logically MM will ......... ( never gonna happen).

Lets quit the pipe dreams he, the is zero evidence that CS could keep pace with MM.
