I LIKE to post SOME words in ALL capitals and SOME words in LOWERCASE

If you're an adult, why not act like one by making your point in a clear, concise manner? The man wasn't even talking about Rossi, he was talking about another rider and you have to go trashing Rossi, as per usual. He wasn't even part of the conversation, so why? You're on your last strike because you're an adult, but I'm the one with issues, sorry, I mean ISSUES?


Moving on...


Hopefully Sunday has some good, clean racing

Much respect for sure.
There is Spanish text on the banner of Dani's twitter which reads (if I have translated properly) "Your faith in me feeds my dream." I could easily be wrong, but I cannot attach such an apparently humble sentiment to any other rider past or present. In future it would befit his character to remember him as a generous sportsman. [Holding fire while I reread this from a cynical viewpoint to make double dog sure I leave no cause for contention. Hmmm. Hmmm. OK, this shouldn't draw flak or incur wrath. Inhale.] OK, a generous sportsman who punted his teammate nearly out of a championship. No worries, same guy.

yikes

Rain tomorrow will favor Syahrin.

I am not current. If someone could explain Dovi's problem to me, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

That shows some gel still in the game to me.
My conspiracy theory is that they don't care for his test rider input, but still want his name attached to the brand for the obvious marketing benefits.

Stoner doesn't ride a GP bike like Lorenzo or Dovi. Perhaps that difference makes Stoner's input of little value to the team.

Vinales didn't tell Forcada they were breaking up.

The hardest part of breaking up, is getting back your stuff.

The Catalan announced on Friday that Forcada will not continue and that Estaban Garcia will be his new head of mechanics, a decision of which the current head of the team learned from the press.

"Yamaha told me I was not going to continue, but the pilot has not told me anything, not a single word. Yamaha told me a few days ago that it was possible and we are looking to find a solution. There is nothing closed but, surely, I will continue in Yamaha, maybe in the satellite equipment, but you do not know in what conditions, or motorcycle, or with whom. It is a new team, "argued Forcada to the microphones of MovistarTV.

The situation had been deteriorating for months, but finally the fuze has jumped without exactly knowing the reason.

"I do not know, I do not know what happened, you have to ask him, the pilot. Not a word from the pilot, not a complaint, not a bad gesture, absolutely nothing. If you do not ask him, I can not tell you anything, "added the technician.

For Forcada the situation has been normal, as with any other driver.

"What is normal? For us, for all the mechanics, the equipment has worked exactly as always. I've been here for 11 years and nothing has changed, but every pilot has his needs or, I do not know, his wishes. But as the pilot has never said anything to anyone, we do not know. You have to talk to him. "

At the relationship level, Forcada did explain that there is a certain normality.

"In the end we are all here, or try to be professional, we do the job as before, the relationships are the same as before, for me there is no difference. For me there is no difference and I will try to make the bike to win until the last race that is with him, I do not know what it will be, because as things are the same is this, I do not know. For my part I will continue trying to do normal work, as always, as I have done all my life. It's not going to change anything, I do not know how to do it any other way, "said Forcada.

In addition to the current track engineer of Viñales, he will not continue next year in the team Javier Ullate, another of the mechanics who have lived a lifetime in Yamaha and who together with Forcada, Jorge Lorenzo and Wilko Zeelenberg -other who will not continue- added 3 World MotoGP crowns for Yamaha.
Hmm....early onset dementia for the guy who setup Lorenzo's buttery smooth ride? Or just another rider cracking under the pressure of being in the same garage as the GOAT? I gotta go with the latter.....

19-20 may not be his last contract....
