Jorge has withdrawn from the Japanese Grand Prix, after performing just one lap in FP1. The fractured hand is worth than expected.

Kudos mate for forging ahead with your life in the face of such a challenge.

Much respect to you.
Yes it will be a prosthetic and I've already worn it once to check the balance, will be another month before I return for 2nd fit and then it'll be pictures and off to the bike people to work out the rotation etc that needs sorting, life is very exciting atm and even though I have bad days with ghost pain and anger at how it all happened, I'd not swap anything.

Effin' best time of the year as a Moto fan!

Just bought coffee supplies for the 3 upcoming sunday-early ups, it's a shame there really isn't a title contention in MotoGP this year, but the 3 tracks are so fun to watch I guess we'll all have a good time anyways.

For Motegi I predict an expectable Dovi-MM battle btw

Marquez pace in FP4 ominous. Will need to see what tires they were on new vs used but he had a consistent 2-3 10ths on the next closest and 5/10 ths on Dovi.

Go Miller! Spewing he dropped it on his final lap which was looking even better. Tyres choice will be interesting.

He used 15 lap old tires and was in the mid-45's on them. I think it was medium.

Petrucci - Miller balance is going the wrong way for Ducati. I do not see Petrucci in the same class with Marc and Dovi, while Miller just may have it ... time will tell.

Just saw that. Unless Dovi was sand bagging , he is in trouble trying to keep the championship alive. Marc trashed his number 1 bike at the end of Fp4 and had to use back up bike which didnít have the same set up. Hopefully he wonít go all red mist trying to make up everything in the first corner.
