Is Istanbull a crackin track or what?

Man does that track look good. That fast righthander then up over the hill.
I heard somewhere on the commentary that it's the same German bloke that did Sepang.
And what a good race. No disrespect, but it was nice to see Rossi struggle for a change.
Bloody top event.

Was a bit pissed off that Boycie got the winner right but that was compensated by Giblet screwing it up again and even more so when he got back to the pits and spat the dummy. What a berk

Was thinking the same about the track

Looks very tricky though, with all those linked turns.

Hermann Tilke is the name (thought a fellow engineer woud know that). Said to have designed Shanghai and Bahrain as well though tilke.com only mentions Sepang.

No surprise

Not surprised. I tend to forget famous Germans as soon as possible...same thing happens with Suzuki riders

Thought about it, but I'm letting that last comment go through to the keeper BP

Loved the circuit, fastest corner in GP I heard!!!

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

What i wouldn;t give to go throu the M section at the end with a load of mates. It'd be like billy smarts circus.

Thats where Melandri was so quick too. Rossi was loosing out to him everytime through there. Such a bugger to get right.
My boy Haydon was cookin AGAIN GD.

Can't wait for next season. Who's you money on then??? or are you all going to jump on the obvious Melandri band wagon.

High hopes for Pedrosa but it'll take a season or 2

Yeah nicely done by Nicky BUT my play money for 06 goes on my obvious and only choice - Vermeulen

Give him a handful more starts and he'll have that thing flying

I hope Pedrosa has started some serious working out.... Can't see how he'll handle the big beast

Pedrosa's pretty tough. Did you hear that he's ridden the last 3 races with a fracutured arm that he didn't tell anybody about!!!

I've already offered by expert tuition in gaining body mass

BP ... I just don't get your fasination with that twit He-done.

If he was an Aussie or a Kiwi he would never have got so far, and given his perfomance todate on the top bike in the top bike .... the team should really take a leaf out of the 1-4 dating guide and bin-the-bitch.

In his defence he has .. youth ... he's American ... and has a gay boy smile. I know this is not a peculiar penchant of yours so it can't be these reasons you favour him so blindly... although the sight of you on the cover of the next 'Out' magazine would be right funny big fella hehehe

Pedrosa will be king. He will make everyone else look like way past their sale by date, and will force Rossi into a Ferrari.

And yes, I have not been on a track for years, hardly ride anymore, need to start dying my hair and have middle age spread ... so have self upgrade to an honourary LEGENDARY arm chair general.

Your all cannon fodder and should be fed to the pigs
