    How about the crash of Yamanaka in P2 of Moto3. Looked horrible but he was ok afterwards.

    If the director keeps cluttering the side of the screen with those stupid picture in picture annoyances I won't be watching. It is nothing but a garbage image that ruins it no matter how large the telly is. At worst, I can easily cancel the Fox Sport portion of Foxtel and miss nothing special.

    The season sub is cheaper than Fox, and way betterer.

    And why would you want to be a party to the paying of wages to a whole bunch of Ruperts right wing numpties?

    To some of us, racing is almost ‘everything’....

    Interesting interview yesterday from Simon Crafar, actually may have been the lady interviewer. I think with Lin Jarvis? So the story goes...Yamaha had to change suppliers of the valves somewhere at the start of the season. Perhaps covid induced problems with supplies...however...a new supplier was found and the specs were sent to them...no difference. Problem is the new supplier had slight difference in manufacturing the valves...tooling, metal qualities?...super minor differences but difference all the same. So when measured against each other the valves were found to be different and therefore Yamaha were in breach. Lin seemed very straight up about it...no stutters or hiding facts so yeah, believe what you will I suppose.

    Good ride from Remy just now.

    Go Jack.

    Lin Jarvis did sound honest. But the valves are different. End of story. Bad luck.

    Rossi's engine go or was it something else. He has no engines left either.
    What started out as a momentous year for Yamaha has certainly gone in reverse in a big way.

    Yep it looked like Yamaha were going to run away with it at one stage.... Suzuki has got the goods deep into the season. Just academic but imagine if Rins had stayed up instead of dislocating his shoulder. Would be an easy Suzuki 1 & 2.
    Wonder if Vinales is having nightmares over his decision to join Yamaha...should have stayed on where he was.

    There are a few there who are showing signs of the mental pressure of being a possible winner this year while MM is out injured, and can't handle that pressure.

    Not sure, currently no less than 6 Ducati's flailing about with little consistency or direction, every race.

    Maybe they need to have a few less gimmicks/buttons/levers/settings on the handlebars, and [ as always since forever or longer ] some way to make the bike go around a corner.....

    Ioanone out for 4 years, retrospectively from December last year for alleged anabolic steroids. He claims it was in some meat he ate in Malaysia. As he's 31 and NOT Rossi, it effectively ends his career.
