Zinging the old man is ground-level low-hanging fruit, dude. He's hardly known for his qually skills.

BUT...

When MM, the king-of-qually, only manages to get in one run - AND - in that one run ONLY 5 hot laps - AND - 2 of those "hot laps" were OVER 18 seconds slower than Jorge - AND - 2 more of those "hot laps" were 2+ seconds slower than Jorge - AND - his best "hot lap" is nearly a full second slower than Jorge... THAT is a stupid, dumb-assed, disaster for Marky-Marc!!

Blinded the yellow rose color glasses as always. Shit track, crap weather & leading the championship, why take risk? And when I say shit track. Who the hell repave a world class track & not grade the surface first? There's more bumps on that track than a teenagers face.

The truth is injuries aside Marquez is the only one with something to lose. Nobody else can win the championship at this stage, he can only lose it. So he took as little risks as possible.

I stopped watching during fp4 because I don’t enjoy watching riders crash in dangerous conditions.

Rossi has actually admitted in a Crashnet interview that they screwed up the timing, saying it took a couple of seconds too long to change to the new tire, but I wouldn’t blame either of them for being cautious in the conditions with the doubtful safety of the track in general, MM most likely because of the risk to his championship, Rossi because he hasn’t got to be a still competitive fairly injury free 39 year old premier class gp bike rider by risking unsafe track conditions for doubtful gain. It seems questionable whether they should even be holding the race.

The resurfacing has been so embarrassing, even my nan noticed how bumpy the track is. A friend pointed out that a BSB race had only 7 of the 23 riders finish at this circuit. Imagine building anything in England and not allowing for rain.

Embarrassing..... Its England and known for its completely shit wet weather. Design/grade/improve the track accordingly, its had water problems for a long time. Maybe run the English round at a different track that can deal with the wet weather better?
