Qualifying cancelled...

It rained so hard in Sepang that they had a delay to see if the track dried, it did but some areas remained waterlogged so qualifying is scrapped & the times here will form the grid, go Vale!!!! fastest man on the track:ayyy:

"Nicky has been using the bike he tested after Brno but is starting to get a bit frustrated with testing stuff when he has a championship to win."

I really don't know what Honda is thinking, but the conspiracy theorists are out in full force: the rumor is that Nicky will have an 'intentional' mechanical in order for the Hobbit to win the championship.

I don't buy it - who needs a mechanical when all they need to do is keep giving him new stuff to test on a bike that won't be raced next year.

If that's true Honda are bigger idiot's than they were when Rossi left them(it was Honda's claim that the bike & not the rider was important that pissed Vale off), & given Dani's present condition(very sore & limited movement) they won't win nothing. I reckon Nicky's points lead is going to be further reduced tomorrow, VR is flying:eek:ccasion1

Yeah, those cocksuckers at HRC are backstabbing pieces of shit. Nicky's dad has told people that unless Nicky wins a championship, tha he'll be out of a job next season. But like you said, they have him spend time he could be using to set up his race bike on testing worthless crap that won't be used after this season is over. :headshake

I hope he pulls the championship off then tells honda to fuck off and rejoins his old teammate at yamaha. He'd probably go back to being the "B" rider under Rossi but I don't think yamaha is like honda when it comes to playing favorites and only giving good parts to the main guy. So, as long as yamaha could make their bike a little more reliable I think Nicky would be able to fight for the championship again.

Gee. Ya think that could be because he used a Q tire during practice, whereas most others didn't? :rolleyes: For that matter, so did de Puniet. Otherwise, he sure wouldn't be gridded 7th.
