Actually Sham, I think he was sticking it to Yamaha even more with that comment.
He's not a young man in the field anymore and the glory of a win or two on the yam versus a cool few million with ducati?
No contest really and with Stoners phenomenal success on the ducati (despite of the bike and the companies failure) a distant memory, getting close to Rossi's dismal effort with a fraction of the budget should still represent some success for the Brit. He'll miss nothing at Yamaha especially their arrogance to push popularity over substance. Can't wait 'til he speaks his mind about the whole deal actually.

Crazy Joe got thrown off the Ducati while trying to follow Rossi. At the time Rossi was half a second off the pace. Cal, I can't wait for your first win but what have you let yourself in for next year?

Fantastic for Cal and Brad did great too. A good day for Herve and Tech3.

The only thing for me is the Marquez Qualifying 'effort'. That non-performance looked and awful lot like a guy sandbagging like he'll and cruising.

Another case of trying to make it look good and that there is more doubt over the huge performance gap of a Honda over the rest?

Maybe a directive from HRC not to really drop the hammer in case there are more calls to address their big advantages and change the game.

I know I'm doing the conspiracy paranoia theory bit..... but there's masses of evidence to show that MotoGP isn't averse to a bit of manipulation and scripting. For sure we can't take all we see at face value.
