When I saw this news , I knew for sure that there will be little bitches here that will claim this is Rossi doing something behind the scenes.

Here are the facts: Vinales has been way more vocal than Rossi about Yamaha’s fuckups. So much that Yamaha has to silence him more than once (Not counting his split with his crew chief).

Rossi has been pretty tame in his public feedback, he hoped they will bring an update for the Brno rest which they didn’t. He was still rather diplomatic about it.

Yamaha already admitted they screwed up, during the technical heads media brief (which I guarantee the mouthbreathers here didn’t watch ). If you know anything about Japanese culture and business etiquette, which I am sure most of you don’t, there’s a lot to pick up from the choice of words and body language.

This is just a continuation of the same. This is a factory that knows that they are letting two very fast riders down and vows to fix it.

I expect the 2019 M1 to be a firebreathing dragon.

Yamaha are acting like weirdos.

Anyone see uccio during qp last night? Vale pulled in and is relaying feedback the fella with a laptop, all Uccio can do; with a tissue in his hand because he has been promoted from ipad holder to lens clarity facilitator, is try and get in the way and act like Rossi is talking to him.

Eventually he proffers the tissue at which VR scrunches it up in hand.

Also why does he insist on wearing a peaked cap under the safety helmet? He is making a mockery of pit lane safety regulations.
Speaking of completely irrelevant things , has anyone seen Marquez’s tissue holder? He definitely looks like he plays a clarinet all night long.

Certainly looks likely to be the podium but, as you say, in what order is too close to call.
Did you miss the bike surfing?

It sort of has the vibe of a man being publically humiliated by his peers. A man who knows that the next time this happens, there is a good chance he will find himself seated at a table across from both riders, then be forced to offer them his pinky finger wrapped up in a tissue pre-soaked with his tears.

I would recommend learning a bit about Japanese work and business etiquette before talking about this.

I have spent 12 years working with the Japanese and 3 years living win one. I know what I saw there. Do you?

Hey don't knock Uccio..he's got handing tissues out down to a fine art..you take his tissues away and he won't know what the fuck to do with himself.

Marquez is putting in constant low to mid 1.24s on the hard tyre in warm up, Dovi surprisingly only in 7th right now.

Dovi finishes first. The three favourite showing good pace as expected.
