    It was Assen last year, when Alvaro collected Jorge in the first corner, wasn´t it?

    That guy REALLY needs to learn some self control, and quickly.

    I am going to give the guy the benefit of the doubt that because english isn't his native language that it came out wrong but was that 2nd question asked during the open question period of the press conference the dumbest question ever asked?

    Turnip truck´s development really doesn not seem to go forward at all.

    But I´m not so surprised, because they basically did not go much forward in -11 /-12, when they had Rossi. Even though failure to become competitive was a major embarrassment for both parties. Ok, they´ve got a good wet-weather racing motorcycle (though this was probably a bit by mistake, or not their aim, and they seem just as surprised about that as everyone else!)
    But in general, I think they have no clue, what they should do, otherwise they would have done it years ago. Maybe not fixt the whole thing in 80 seconds, though :lol3

    Lorenzo down hard! Looks to be safe but maybe injured a left wrist/shoulder/collarbone.
