    Because I'm heading for the Island on Tuesday morning then working at Winton the following weekend, I want to set my STB to record the Malaysian MotoGP.
    Channel 10's website will only give me program details 1 week ahead.

    Can anyone let me know by 5pm Monday EDST what time their coverage will be on?

    One for the Math's nerds

    If Rossi finishes 3rd or better and Lorenzo DNF's then Rossi is champion.

    If Rossi finishes in front of Lorenzo, then he takes enough points the the last round to be reasonably safe, but not guaranteed

    We saw what happened to Rea, all felt a new points record was guaranteed. But an eager Torres and then a DNF put a stop to that. So the only way Rossi can be sure of taking the title is if Jorge fail to finish and Rossi goes into the final race with 26 points advantage.

    Rossi is playing mind games. Sounds like he's trying to discourage Marquez from finishing between Lorenzo and himself

    Sounds a bit silly considering that MM beat Jorge, but it could be to make sure that MM doesn't do anything unfavourable towards Rossi. Still, I personally think it would have been better to not bring up this topic by Rossi :shrug:

    If anything, Rossi may be offering M&M a bonus for each time he finishes in front of Jorge.

    .... yeah. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Up to a point, yeah. Maybe he's just speaking his mind. People ask him what's going on, sometimes he just tells them. Like a lot of the Rossi spiel, I kinda think it's true as in that's how he sees it. Some of what he comes out with does seem to be deliberately and carefully manufactured to produce a particular result, but occasionally he just says what he thinks.

    MotoGP FP2 results. I won't cut 'n' paste. Maybe I'm spoiled. I am quite used to there being 1 or 2 Aussies in the field, and for most of the last 2 decades they've either been right at the sharp end or very close to it. It's a bit odd having 3 Aussies in it, in 20th, 24th, and 25th & last. Before anybody defends them, I wouldn't be any higher and it's not easy, and none of those boys could or should really expect to be a whole lot further up than that. Maybe Jack could go a bit quicker... I'm just saying, it's a bit odd to see 3 Aussies up the back. I'm not used to this...
