"Yamaha boss was in Tech3 garage with Cal before Qualifying"

mmmmm says me as I gaze into my crystal ball. It appears the 1+1 contract has already been decided and someone will not be riding a Big Blue next year.

Just a prediction - same as the WC starts this race.

If ever Cal needed to find a great launch and start, then Saturday's race would be a wonderful time.

Looking forward to this one - great quali and a competitive looking top 6 in a bunfight.

Potentially a very good day for more than one person getting their best-ever result (or maybe a best ever for a couple of years perhaps).

If you think rossi's PR machine (the most powerful in GP racing) will allow Yam to punt him for next year you are dreaming,when the head of Dorna tells the GP world that rossi will be on a competitive bike in 2013 who do you think put that pressure on him, and by the way dont blame rossi I would do the very same if I could get away with it.

Aussie your secret love affair with Vale continues. This has nothing to do with pr and all to do with a thing called a contract. As for Cal very fast but pole positions don't make wins. Equally while talented Cal has crashed a number of times while in a good position and this has had little to do with subpar kit. I would also point out that it was Cal who opted for a 1 year deal thinking people would be falling over themselves to hire him to me those with a better view than us are the best barometer of a riders skill

Crutchlow just made Rossi look like a bitch!

bwahahah, watch where Cal ends up off the line heading into the first turn, he's gonna get eaten up by about 6 bikes. whats the use of getting pole when you cant lead into the first bend.
