    And there are murmurs of a Rossi/Suzuki satellite team. Be still my beating heart...

    I know right. I'm not paying attention to any rumours though, I don't to dream a dream like that could be smashed.

    Just sitting beer in hand watching Q1. Simon Crafar asked Lyn Jarvis why Rossi is signed for only one year, the reply was to the effect that the Yamaha contract with Dorna expires at the end of next year and Yamaha can't offer any contracts past that expiry date. Yet.

    Rossi will be riding for Petronas on a Yamaha factory contract.

    Jarvis had also been asked about Brett and Alex being let go, but he didn't answer that.

    The latter seemed at first an odd decision, so much accumulated knowledge and experience. I guess it's about the expense of all their travel. That would tend to indicate that in a COVID world Yamaha are counting pennies. It also suggests that there's minimal chance of their getting picked up by another team.

    Alex Briggs gave the world a small but unique window into the MotoGP paddock with his Twitter posts. He used to do a quiz each round, a close up photo of an item on the bike. The parts were seriously difficult to identify, and although he didn't give away any secrets, the dread hand of the Yamaha PR drones put a stop to that.

    Twenty eight years Alex has been in the GP paddock working with Gardner, Doohan and Rossi. I assume Brett is similar. That's some CV.

    Here's hoping that if they got together with Jerry Burgess over a few beers we could get a seriously interesting book.

    I don't believe the money story. Petronas are well funded. Being based in Malaysia, the extra airfare to Aus and NZ is a drop in the bucket. They just wanted their existing team to stay on.

    Which doesn't explain why their job at Yamaha evaporated, which is what I was referring to, not Petronas.

    Briggs and Steven's contracts apparently stipulated business class travel. That would easily add up to the kind of money that would attract the attention of the bean counters over a normal season.

    Meanwhile we'll just have to wait for the book. Unless Briggs decides to mention it.

    Set an alarm and got up for the 2am start time.

    Strange race is all I can say, kinda like a wet race but with worn wets thrown in as the track dried.

    Good to hear you're still keen to get up and watch races (I used to do that lol).

    Copied all three races. Have been sufffering power cuts here in the horowhenua for some bloody reason ? Moto2 and 3 ok, but settled in for the main race,saw Dovi and Zarco bail early
    (don't mind that for Dovi haha)
    But then missed recording due to power cut ! FUCK ! Vale down near the end, but Yams up front, so happy.

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

    Some saY there is a BTSport torrent on ettvcentral. I couldn't comment but will say that the race was marred by Neil Hodgson - refering to the 'Fan Wall' at turn 10 - asking when we would see "Some inappropriate behaviour". After that
