    "That setting is more close to what the Ducati needs for be fast. This setting should help me more for entering the corner where I want and especially with higher speed. "

    :lol3

    So where's that quote from Stoner, saying that Hayden should ignore the Rosie settings and set up the bike like he knows how? Was from late last year, I think....

    There was a reason for his bike's chatter troubles, they've found it, fixed it, and he'll be looking for better results. SURE HOPE SO! :bluduh

    This time I'm rooting for Kel, I'm still cheering for Vale, Nicky & the turnip trucks but I need to actually be able to see someone I want to score points during the race. :D
    Looking forward to the chaos classes, it's great seeing close racing in 2 & 3 and hopefully there will be two Yamahas and three Hondas fighting it out near the front on MotoGP, please don't let it be a procession. :puke1

    Wouldn't mind seeing a bit more of Bautista too.

    My pick is:
    Lorenzo,
    Casey,
    Kel,
    Dani,
    Ben,

    I hope Ben gets his mojo back, hope Hayden and Rossi can get within sight of the podium.

    Stoner’s win (at Jerez) marked the 41st time he has stood on the top step of the podium in Grand Prix racing. The Australian has now also finished on the podium the last seventeen times in the MotoGP class. This is one of the longest podium sequences of all-time in the premier-class, equalling Mick Doohan during his Grand Prix career, with only Giacomo Agostini and Valentino Rossi having had longer sequences.

    If Pedrosa manages to climb onto the podium at this round (has a very good chance!) it will be his 100th podium. Go Dani!!

    A lot of people forget (although, doubtlessly you Aussies don't) that Stoner, with a bit more luck and better kit, could have easily been 250 World Champion in 2005. He was giving Pedrosa all he wanted.

    If we're talking could have beens... how many podiums would Casey have if Rossi hadn't taken him out at Jerez last year? 20 consecutive and counting.

    Yeah, I thought it was old news too....but apparently not. Shame on them for carrying the problem for two full races, meanwhile the other Yamahas do not chatter....apparently.

    Watching the rerun of Jerez, there was a point there where I wish I could watch Hayden ride Dovi's bike. :evil
