"Casey is very fast and I don''t know exactly how to beat him - maybe I need to start 30 seconds earlier!"

You gotta love Vale he still has a sense of humour after another awesome performance from Casey who is setting the bar very high at the moment.

Gotta love Rossi. He''s a funny bugger. But serious too. Well, if Stoner doesn''t have a mechanical or get taken out by a lapped rider, Rossi should get second because Vermuelen is well back on the grid and will take a while to get up there. If he does, Rossi may have to deal with two Aussies. Imagine the ratings!

After Rossi, I see that Lorenzo is also developing a sense of humour - he commented he managed to follow more experienced riders around the track on Friday 'without dying'. LOL.

Hopefully Rossi can teach Lorenzo some more one liners like this!

Good old Rossi - we'll miss the guy when he retires.

"i reckon there's some get out clause in that contract if yamaha don't sort their act out soon."

So you reckon your hero is a quitter then Jimmy? He will toss it in if Yamaha don't build him the best bike!!! If he wanted the best bike he had the option of going to Ducati didn't he? Maybe he just didn't want to go head to head with CS on the same bike as his fans wouldn't have had any more excuses left and his title of "GOAT" would have been seriously jeopardised.

VR may well be practicing starts in his sleep as if he is taking a few laps to get his tyres up to temperature and does not make a good start he could very well find himself back in the pack.

No point in struggling for tenths of a second in qualifying then loose five seconds over the first few laps as has been the case with the VR Yamaha recently. The racing would be far closer if VR's team gave him a package that comes on from the very first corner. The competition in this class is now such that no rider can afford to loose any unnecessary time.

Squiggle, it's you that sound more like the three-year-old. Instead of trying to pick an argument, come up with something interesting to say.
