    I'm completely lost about the status of the penalties.

    So on the official lists and most importantly on Mischa's tracker and monitor, Cyril's +15' penalty doesn't show, right?

    Correct, as does Caselli's 3h20m penalty...

    overall shows everyone with no penalty.

    Yes, yes I know, PENALTYGATE :lol3

    One would think that the rest day would be good for the ASO to sort out the details before they drop back in to the hot stages.

    Foolish me.

    It's ironic that he struggles so many years as a privateer on a WR / YZ, and the year he signs to Honda the podium is out of his reach. And to add insult to injury, they are even thinking of replacing him. Talk about shit end of the stick

    I would love for him to go back to Yamaha and win the race one day.

    If anything, Pyndon's earlier start means that, on the longest day, he'll be at the biv earlier. :jkam

    Very good point. :thumb

    More time for Pyndad to work on the bike, more time for Pyn to eat, rest and do the roadbook. More sleep for both.

    Good point.

    Wonder how bad the trucks are making things, with them having started earlier.

    Barreda Bort is really laying it on...It'll be interesting to see how well the engines fare in the next couple of days...

    Seems like the 450's are taking a beating this year..
