Have seen from a few sources that this is the very reason why Miller will NOT get the factory ride - he does not want to be, and will not be subservient to a team mate and yet it is what Dovi wants as he wants the #1 plate in the team

I aint no rocket scientist and fully know how to do it but just for you Theo, I may keep fucking it up if it annoys so much


Purpose in this case was simple - the top pick in full resolution some may want as a wallpaper etc - but then, I also forget that so few of the good ones have left that the market, nay demand is far less today
Keshav, Theo and Furiosa like this.

Below is a snippet from Tug McClutchin (Yamaha getting it all wrong):

Quote:
Rossi spent most of the day digging himself out of the gravel, and ended up staying there in the end. His wretched season continues. His qualifying performance was crap, and so was his racing. There are conversations about the bike, but he’s the same guy that also claims to be one of the best development riders around too. That’s not working well for him right now. And his fans continue to look for excuses, although they are becoming more laughable by the day. Especially since that French kid with the funny name is belting him, on last year’s bike, with an engine that Yamaha has tuned down a bit to stop him from embarrassing Rossi. It appears Yamaha can’t even get that right.

Agree with 90% of the rest though.

IMHO Mugello is better...I'd say only Phillip Island is comparable to it, but Mugello wins because it's more complete.

I have unfortunately ridden Mugello only once, but that still gave me some understanding of it.

It has everything a track could have: uphills, downhills, a huge straight, strong braking points, fast corners, slow parts, and moreover it doesn't have any parts where it's hard to overtake.

Add the layout to the equation and that's it

It would be my choice track to run of them all...not a dog like Indy. I do fondly remember the last days of the 250 2-strokes there and that wonderful noise.

Agreed. Only ridden there twice but can't wait to get back later this year.
