No- they just shot the picture too high. DP is to the right of the sign (they also gave him a hello sign at his height).

Unless you are Marquez, in which case its pretty simple. Beat Dani.

Although Yamaha have a good record here (2 wins apiece for Rossi and Lorenzo, and count them, 6 2nds for Rossi) neither rider has any real chance of winning the championship unless Marquez has a string of DNFs.

The battle for second is (again) where the action will be!

One will do if he gets injured. Anything can happen.

Who would΄ve thought that MM would fuck up in two consecutive races?? Despite that, he still has a massive lead, but anything can happen (..although he can now only lose the title due to injury, and I never wish that to happen to anybody).

Just taking 2nd or 3rd in the next two upcoming races should be relatively easy for him, and that should definitely bring him the title..... doesn΄t mean this is what he will do, though!

Isn't there a typhoon headed into Japan about now?

Wet race?

Could be anybody's race to win.

I hope MM clinches this weekend so the remaining races will be a serious war for the next couple of positions in the final standings.
