According to Cal... press-ups.

No. He would have to seal 2 engines to do that, # 5 and #6. Makes it seem less likely.

Each rider is allowed 5 engines to use for the season. They are submitted to tech inspection and sealed for the season. They start the season with 2 engines in play, for their two bikes they will race and practice with.

As the season progresses, they submit and seal new engines to be put into use.

It has been big news that Yamaha has already sealed 4 of 5 engines for the season and we are not even half way through. So, the speculation is that Yamaha will need more than 5 engines to make it through the season.

What is being suggested is that Jorge take this opportunity to have engines 5 and 6 sealed. The penalty for each engine over the 5 engine limit is, you must start from pit lane for the race in which the extra engine is introduced.

Since Jorge is injured and possibly not able to be competitive in, or maybe even complete, the race tomorrow it is being suggested he take his pit lane start penalty and then pull in early. Effectively giving him an extra engine to use.

Make sense? Not sure I 'splained it to well.

Makes perfect sense! Thanks for taking a moment to explain.

It'll be impressive, sure. He may only be lining up because Pedrosa is already in his head (if it happens, that is), and if he falls on it again, he may not be ready for Sachsenring.

If he really races, it'll be the kind of desperation play Pedrosa tried at Phillip Island last year, when he tried to stay ahead of both Lorenzo and Stoner when there was little chance of success; the Pedrosa thing made more sense, because it was so tight so near the end of the season.

Unless of course Lorenzo is just going to bring out a new engine and park it.

I'd wonder. Remember when Colin broke his and tried to race the same weekend and got TD'd.

Unreal. Lorenzo just posted mid pack 8th fastest in morning warp up. What a superman.

GPone has reported that Lorenzo has been declared medically fit to take part in the morning warm-up but must undergo another examination afterwards to assess his fitness for the race.

The warmup has just concluded and Lorenzo indeed took part, his best lap ranking him eighth, about two tenths behind Pedrosa in fourth and eight tenths behind Rossi, Marquez and Crutchlow, who filled the top three places in that order.

Not only that, but Lorenzo's best lap was his eighth of nine.

Looks like he might well start the race.

Rossi's best lap was his 12th and last, and until then Lorenzo had been less than three tenths slower.

Rossi was a single thousandth of a second quicker than Marquez in the warm-up, and about three hundredths quicker than Crutchlow. So it's tight at the top. Pedrosa was half a second back.

This is indeed shaping up to be fun.
