And with that, I think it's time Max creates the 2013 MotoGP News, Rumors and Info thread Looking forward to testing - hopefully the weather gets better by Tuesday and stays that way for the entire test.

I was thinking about an off-season thread and then a new thread when the season starts.

Now going along with what I said two weeks ago...

Pedrosa only had to finish in front of Lorenzo in Australia, and if he had... he'd be champion right now.

Had we won, we would have collected 25 points. Coming in 2nd would have netted 20. Less than that and he would have been out of luck. By crashing he did not get any points.

Still coulda, woulda, shoulda, but the math works.

yeah, he only lost by 18 cuz he crashed out in round 17.

Had he stayed in AND finished ahead of Lorenzo He would be champion.

Actually even if he took 3rd in Australia and JLo took 4th they would have ended in a tie... I dunno how tie breakers work here, but if it is based on wins Pedrosa finished one ahead.

Anyways, like max said coulda, woulda, shoulda... I just wanted to point it out.

Lorenzo's crash looked ugly today, and he got fucked over by backmarkers twice in this race.

Meh. It's the passer's responsibility to get it done safely. That move was on whoregay. I don't like him, personally, but that crash looked NASTY.

Coulda woulda shoulda... If Bautista wouldn't have knocked off Whoregay early on, there would be a different story. Maybe.


..and the same can be said for Stoner. Racing is racing.

There would be hot chicks in this signature if the site would let me.

true. A second in australia wouldve won it by 2 points. Sucks for pedro. Hes gonna be the fastest rider in motogp to never win a championship.

Edit- that crash jlo had was bad. I thought he was gonna save it for a second.
