Now that is funny.

Note also that Rossi put a poor pass on Nicky later and had to give him a friendly wave. Not like MM is unique in making poor passes.

Interesting comments from Gino Borsoi that Aspar's decision on which bike to run in 2014, Honda or Aprilia, will depend mostly on which bike Hayden would prefer.

I'd really like to see Nick on a Honda. Yes, I remember HRC dropped him in favor of Dovi, but somehow I think Honda better appreciates him now. He could help them become a force with their customer MotoGP product and then put him on their new V4 Superbike.

"The ball is in the hands of the pilot," smiles Borsoi. There will be a lot, will have to throw it to the right target soon. By tomorrow.


So maybe we'll know shortly after the race is over tomorrow (tonight) ...

We're at Sepang, and my sources in Dorna have the chances of a certain Mr S getting Bradl's ride in Aus at "..better than 50/50."

According to who? At the beginning of 2012 I said Stoner might retire at the end of the season. If an outsider like me has an inkling I am sure others might have suspected it was well. With the new kid and his general bitchiness I thought the writing was on the wall.

I miss seeing the guy ride. I really wouldn't care if he won or lost (ok, I would be routing for a win), but seeing him on a bike is like the greatest thing in motogp for me.

Casey and HRC denied his retirement about a round or two before he announced it as being so. Casey may have even used the phrase, "100% not true."

But paddock insiders already had a whiff of the truth and rumors were all over the place.

How can you be so sure this time, even with Suppo's denials?

The joke is, when a denial is issued, it must certainly be true. We just saw it with Gigi Dall'Igna and Ducati. Both denied ever having spoken, but by and by, it was more than true.

It would certainly be interesting to watch him get up to speed and see what he's got (after a year off).

I agree it is unlikely, too. But there are a lot of paddock insiders suggesting it might.

Here, it is mostly fun just to stir the pot since many choke on bile at the mere mention of Casey's name.
