Rossi the struggling Yamaha and a chunk of time away.  Only a tenth ahead of the struggling, injured & retiring Jorge too (now there's a carrot for Lorenzo to chase in his last GP!). Chucking it twice (FP1 & FP2) - I'm wondering if Rossi isn't feeling the pressure to try and carry some momentum from Sepang and the need to try to leave the season with something positive from a bad season to take into the winter?   FP3 & QP as well as the last race is starting to look to have a fair bit of pressure and importance attached to it by Rossi and others.  After all, this event & season finale (& the Tuesday Test) are the memories that rider's, sponsors, teams and fans carry through the winter.
Cal to Repsol is sounding more and more likely. From what I heard though he would have to carry Red Bull logo on his helmet. From the interview earlier he sounds less likely to retire next year. The other big rumour is Miller to the works team.
Rossi already said he'd welcome Lorenzo as test rider but reckons Jorge would demand too much money which Yamaha have trouble getting to begin with. If Lorenzo took a test role it wouldnt be long before he'd be matching or even topping the times at certain tracks. He still holds lap records from 2016 on the Yamaha at Valencia to name 1... 
Same old same old,Yamaha FP champions, MM will want this one & a clean sweep of his home races for the 1st time.
Puig coming  across as gracious and generous of spirit for a change.  Good.
