    Redding has gone to Aprilia, Lowes is out in the cold.

    This will either make or break Miller.
    He'll either gel with the Ducati or there will be no contract for him anywhere next year I reckon.
    His big mouth has mellowed a bit so hope he does well.

    It is wet in Austria and there have been a lot of crashes.

    Lowes manager says he is in talks with Marc VDS but it's reported that Lowes had a two year contract with Aprilia. There is speculation about performance clauses or a buyout.

    Update: Lowes says if he can't get another ride in Moto GP he will go back to Moto2 and try and win the title.

    No real surprise that Mark Marquez is on pole this weekend, he's been ahead of everyone
    all weekend.
    Dovi 2nd with Lorenzo 3rd , Iannone had an engine let go while flat out luckily not dumping
    crap on the track.

    There are safety concerns with the track. When wet "it's like a skating rink" and in practice, when riders went down, some of them slid surprisingly long distances.
    This was to be discussed at the safety commission.

    Because the track is also used by F1 there are hard barriers around parts of the circuit, hopefully far enough away from the action not to be a problem but...

    After considering this some of the MotoGP riders have announced that they will not ride if the track is wet. So far none of those at the sharp end of the points are included in that number.

    On another safety related matter, for some time Alex Briggs (mechanic for Rossi) has been advocating for a speed limit in pit lane during bike changes. Following the incident last week there will now be just such a rule. Presumably the riders will just use the limiter button on the handlebar.

    Close. If you backed that you have money coming.

    Wot a thriller of a finish! I was starting to yawn and get sleepy but the last lap fixed that, I'm wide awake now. Ah well, it's not like I have to get up early.

    yep good thing he was in Con ten tion ! Classic,classic pass, classic moves, classic everything.

    Yamaha struggled but thems the breaks. Thought MM would do Dovi at the end but no !

    You'd never go hungry with Nigella Gaz.
    If it weren't for flashbacks...I'd have no memory at all..

    Dani Pedrosa back into contention with a classic classic little bit wide blah blah blah.

    Fucking tops race, MM put on a show just glad his showmanship didn't end with both riders on the ground. Dovi made him his bitch though, clever racing.
    That track surprises with just how good the racing is.

    How's fucking fast is the Honda now? Watching MM out of the corners n DP slice through the field, its going to be a very hard championship to win from here I think if the Honda is that good.
