Looked nasty out there. I have to think those conditions are rewarding judicious throttle control, modern electronics notwithstanding.

Surprised Petrucci wasn't further up towards the top as he usually excels in the wet.

Even as a non Rossi fan, I think your assessment is over-harsh. I've known racers who were bitter rivals, who would show up at the hospital to check in on a rider badly hurt in a race. Rossi may be a narcissistic ass, but he's not a sociopath.

Harsh perhaps but yes, I believe he is a narcissistic ass and just possibly a sociopath as well. Has he ever really apologized for anything?

He couldn't even be bothered to take off his helmet when he went to see Stoner. Pretty sure he didn't actually apologize there either. There's always an explanation for the sociopathic behaviour...

Poor Rossi being involved in his friends death, I am surprised he didn't retire after that.

I've had a subscription for years and I've never had a problem. Then again, aside from this year's round at CoTA, I don't watch the races live. I did get an email earlier this year, I forget which race, apologizing for the blackout.

Definitely not looking like tomorrow is going to be Fabio’s day. Even if it dries. Bags knows and loves this track so well.

I have to agree with you there. Fabs’s frustration was plainly visible. He needs to up the race face/gamesmanship ante some more (maybe considerably) to make it into the upper echelon of ice man riders. He has improved considerably but this morning proves that in particular his wet weather riding still needs to improve considerably to make the next step.

You would never see Doohan, Lawson, Rainey or a few other greats like MM throwing tantrums in the pits like Miller, slapping the tank with the palm of hand like Fabs or sulking like Vinales.

Well of course you agree with me. I'm very agreeable.

Tho, I might take issue with you re: the greats. In those golden days there were not hundreds of invasive media outlets poking their noses in the garages 200 times a minute with long-lens, hi-def video cameras in hopes of catching a rider in a normal vulnerable moment. In the '70s and '80s fans only ever really saw what happened on track or on the podium.
