I dunno, but it makes me feel better knowing that the pros do it too.

Seemed like he couldn't downshift under braking going into a turn, then finally *CLUNK* and he's shaking his head. Then accelerating out of the turn, no upshift, downshift *WAAAAAHHHHHHH* and he comes up out of the seat. Oops.

All this captured from the onboard camera on his tank pointed back at him.

Screw going out! Qualifying is almost (and sometimes is) better than the race!

funny.... looks like everything is almost back to normal. Seems like that new engine is turning things around for Rossi. 2 bad its 2 late.

Whats the deal with the Repsol boys? Seems like they fixed a few kinks out too over the last several races.

WTF looks like everybody caught up to Suzuki. Tires?

Hopefully, but Yamaha needs to still do a lot of work and testing on that motor. He blew one engine a couple of races ago and blew another yesterday in FP2 I think it was. It looks strong when it runs, but has reliability issues at the moment.

COME ON YAMAHA!!
