We're at one of the most famous motor sports venues on the planet

0:01:000:01:04

or rent roll of the championship. This is MotoGP at the Brickyard,

0:01:040:01:11

and it promises to be another crucial chapter in the title chase.

0:01:110:01:19

Jorge Lorenzo rolled the dice last time out. Everyone went for her

0:01:190:01:24

heart went by and he went soft. But look like the gamble had paid off

0:01:240:01:27

after the first lap but it backfired shortly after, as Pedrosa

0:01:280:01:36

started to get into his group. about save of the day! Pedrosa had

0:01:360:01:41

been quickest all weekend, but it counted for nothing in the end.

0:01:410:01:46

That left Casey Stoner to his 6th win of the year, and it got better

0:01:460:01:49

and better for him as a first Dovizioso and then Simoncelli

0:01:490:01:59
0:01:590:02:00

pushed past Lorenzo. The is going to let his hair down and go for it!

0:02:000:02:04

And Pascoe's Simoncelli - she is on the podium as commission mark a

0:02:040:02:09

sideshow Bob taking centre-stage at last, with his first podium in

0:02:090:02:15

MotoGP. In the championship in it all adds up to a 32 point lead for

0:02:150:02:20

Casey Stoner over Jorge Lorenzo. Dovizioso strength and his Holden

0:02:200:02:27

de place. Ben Spies is the leading American in sixth place. Just ahead

0:02:280:02:33

of Nicky Hayden. It is a big weekend for all three Americans.

0:02:330:02:37

Colin Evans, 9th in the championship. They do not get much

0:02:370:02:42

prouder to be racing at this legendary venue than Colin. What a

0:02:420:02:51

feeling it must be. For us Americans, Indianapolis, a lot of

0:02:510:02:56

history and childhood memories of seeing Indy 500, and it is just a

0:02:560:03:02

special place. The mystique of it is more than ever. You'd do not get

0:03:020:03:05

much prouder Americans than yourself and you have had a special

0:03:050:03:13

helmet made for this weekend. have something special, made by a

0:03:130:03:19

couple of Chartered friends. They have put the Navy Seal emblem up

0:03:190:03:24

here. When we heard that a bunch of them had lost their lives, it was

0:03:240:03:30

just one of those things that we had to do, to be proud of them. We

0:03:300:03:34

put a throttle in the right hand. That is a small modification. That

0:03:340:03:42

is all that I can do. Hats off to all those guys. Good luck today.

0:03:420:03:49

Thanks. Even more so there home race for the Kentucky Kid, Nicky

0:03:490:03:59
0:03:590:04:12

Home MotoGP is awesome. In the first couple of years we did not

0:04:120:04:17

have an American round so I know that it is awesome. Especially at

0:04:170:04:22

Laguna Seca. Because my brothers are raising, and that is pretty

0:04:220:04:27

cool to get to go racing with my brothers. Indianapolis is much

0:04:270:04:32

closer to Kentucky. It is my home MotoGP. We have got some big ones

0:04:320:04:37

in Italy, raiding for an Italian team. There is a lot of racing

0:04:370:04:43

still to do. I know that everyone is excited for next year. So am I,

0:04:430:04:51

but I would love to finish strongly and have my best year ever on 900.

0:04:510:04:55

It is also on. I would not to make it. I would take a bullet or any

0:04:550:05:01

one of them, my family. They understand the pressure and all

0:05:010:05:05

that comes along with it, and it is nice when you can share with them,

0:05:050:05:11

the good days. It also helps with training, when you go out riding

0:05:110:05:17

from your House. You do not have to get to the track ready, yourself,

0:05:170:05:22

pole may always does that. It is nice to have someone there to push

0:05:220:05:27

you, to bounce ideas off of, and to talk about training. So my family

0:05:270:05:32

is a big part of my life and I am fortunate to have such a good grip

0:05:320:05:42
0:05:420:05:47

behind me. -- group. I have wanted a softer Jacey, since the boss time

0:05:470:05:55

I rode a bike. -- a softer chances. Now that Valentino has got a little

0:05:550:06:01

bit more horsepower than me, when he asks for it, things happen, and

0:06:010:06:05

hope for the, the things that he is asking for will trickle down to me,

0:06:050:06:15
0:06:150:06:26

Running is a big part of it. The bike starts in the pan. Any rider

0:06:260:06:29

needs to have the feel and to be able to get the bike to turn. I

0:06:290:06:34

would say that there still the number one problem. That is a

0:06:340:06:40

little bit of an issue. We do not have one big thing holding us back

0:06:400:06:44

that we can put all the focus on. It is a little bit everywhere. It

0:06:440:06:49

used to be that we had the best engine. Now the top speed is not so

0:06:490:06:54

good and everyone has caught up. We need to improve everywhere. We need

0:06:540:06:58

to get better stability and more steel on the corner exit to the

0:06:580:07:03

rear of the bike. We know that when the package is right, it is very

0:07:030:07:08

dangerous, the bike is a weapon, it is a little bit too sharp when it

0:07:080:07:12

is working good, but when the Silverstone conditions were good I

0:07:120:07:22
0:07:220:07:23

was the fastest guy on the track. There is Nicky Hayden. Just making

0:07:230:07:30

his final preparations. 25 minutes to go until race time. A big

0:07:300:07:36

weekend for Nicky Hayden. He is a family guy. We have a new helmet

0:07:360:07:42

for the race. His sister got married last weekend. He has had a

0:07:420:07:51

special helmet done. Nice touch. It is a real family affair. Not only

0:07:510:07:58

has he made that gesture, his younger sister Kathy is the

0:07:580:08:01

umbrella girl for me. It has been a family affair and it has been a

0:08:010:08:06

busy couple of weeks for your family. He is, my sister got

0:08:060:08:11

married last week, and it is the warm MotoGP for Nicky this weekend.

0:08:110:08:19

I am trying to stay busy. But my brother asked me, he is an amicable

0:08:190:08:24

die. He just needed a little bit of extra work and that is why I said I

0:08:240:08:28

would hold this for him. I and you have done a better racing yourself.

0:08:280:08:34

When I was younger, but being the youngest of five I had a lot to end

0:08:340:08:39

the ban, and it did not work out. A what is it like having him as a

0:08:390:08:49

brother? He is just humble. He is a class act, for sure. Enjoy it. It

0:08:490:08:54

is a big weekend for Nicky Hayden. The Kentucky Kid, they Col him. He

0:08:540:09:02

has had his work cut out. It is a huge circuit in Indianapolis. It is

0:09:020:09:05

a long walk for the riders to get from the offices to the back of the

0:09:050:09:09

pits. It is a nice opportunity for the fans to get their pictures

0:09:090:09:17

taken, and to get a few autographss. Let me tell you, this circuit was

0:09:170:09:23

packed out, it was packed out in town last night. What they might

0:09:230:09:31

lack in numbers here right now they -- make up for in enthusiasm. Once

0:09:310:09:35

again we have been less to brew more problems for Ducati. The

0:09:350:09:42

miracle cure from last week has not work. There is nothing awesome

0:09:420:09:47

about the product of that Ducati. Nicky Hayden is the best of them

0:09:470:09:52

and he is on the third row. have been scratching your head as

0:09:520:09:57

well, steep. Yes, the same as Jeremy Burgess and everyone else.

0:09:570:10:02

We're from the key and, he wants a softer chassis, but they cannot

0:10:020:10:07

have that with the engine they have out the back. I don't think we're

0:10:070:10:12

going to see a softer chassis before the end of the season.

0:10:120:10:17

about that helmet celebrating his sister's marriage? I try to stay

0:10:170:10:20

away from marriage as much as possible! I am worried that

0:10:200:10:30
0:10:300:10:32

somebody is going to chuck some rice or a hen! -- over him. Marco

0:10:320:10:40

Simoncelli has had a poor position and a victory in 2008, at 2009. He

0:10:400:10:45

comes to MotoGP having broken a podium duck. How much of a relief

0:10:450:10:50

was it after the season you have had to finally get that podium?

0:10:500:10:55

am very happy because of this result, because, for me, from the

0:10:560:11:03

beginning of the year, me and the team deserve this result, and

0:11:030:11:09

finally, we have got it, so I am really happy and I hope to continue

0:11:090:11:18

this season in this way. Thank you, Marco, and good luck. It was a

0:11:180:11:22

relieved to see him up on the podium. He has been threatening all

0:11:220:11:26

season. Great scenes in the Czech Republic. He has been staring down

0:11:260:11:32

the barrel. It is good for him to get it. It is a monkey off his back.

0:11:320:11:37

It puts some bread between him and the first part of the year when

0:11:370:11:42

everyone hated him so much. certainly did not hate him, he is

0:11:420:11:47

spectacular to watch. Like many of the riders, he has found problems

0:11:470:11:53

with the track surface. It has been difficult to find a way. We know

0:11:530:11:57

that he has got a factory bike, as such, but he has not got a factory

0:11:570:12:01

team. The guys that he has got to beat Alan better bikes with better

0:12:010:12:07

engineers. It is going to come for him, for sure, but he has got over

0:12:070:12:12

that bad-boy image and let us hope that he puts it together. This new

0:12:120:12:18

track surface has been really up for this weekend. It has produced

0:12:180:12:22

problems over the course of the weekend. Some question marks going

0:12:220:12:27

into the race. It was alright flogging around doing race

0:12:270:12:31

simulations, but as soon as we put a good tyre on the beer, it made

0:12:310:12:38

the front pushed too much. And it a different path alive after two laps.

0:12:380:12:42

But you do is not so bad but that is destroying the front. Casey

0:12:420:12:47

Stoner is ludicrously fast over a lap, but he has not done a race won,

0:12:480:12:51

Ben Spies has done, and he says that he thinks the base will be

0:12:510:12:56

closer. Interesting conundrums border riders to solve over the

0:12:570:13:01

course of this race. One thing is for certain - the new tracks of

0:13:010:13:05

this has made its savour out there. We had batted for crashes in

0:13:060:13:10

practice, and less than half of what we had last year - 70 crashes

0:13:100:13:15

in all, last year, more than any other circuit in dry weather on the

0:13:150:13:19

calendar. It is not good news for the factories to have to rebuild

0:13:190:13:24

the bikes, but it is good news for the guys trying to improve rider

0:13:240:13:34
0:13:340:13:43

If I fire myself at the scenery, what triggers it? The sensors pick

0:13:430:13:49

up the riders movement and are linked to a microprocessor, which

0:13:490:13:54

has the Housing Unit, went to the sensors around the suit, and the

0:13:550:14:01

gas in plea does. Literally, it is an air bottle? The Yes, a gas

0:14:010:14:07

cylinder, and it is designed to detect when you have gone beyond a

0:14:070:14:17
0:14:170:14:28

As soon as it has gone beyond that, this system will then decide - -

0:14:280:14:38

decide to fire the airbags. At the moment we're averaging about 100

0:14:380:14:42

milliseconds off full protection before the rider hits the track.

0:14:420:14:50

What are the injuries they are most likely to gets? Shoulder injuries

0:14:500:14:59

generally account for about 45 % of all injuries in a MotoGP. We really

0:14:590:15:09
0:15:090:15:27

Why use a guinea pig when you have a crash-test dummy? We can throw

0:15:280:15:35

him out of a moving car, so we are going to fire this manually. You

0:15:350:15:45
0:15:450:15:46

have my complete support! Do I look tough? I have to say, that is

0:15:460:15:51

incredible, because it tightens up your whole shoulder. Can you move?

0:15:510:16:00

Yeah so, I can still move. I can feel it's deflating. It supports

0:16:000:16:05

this whole area around your shoulders. You do have a second

0:16:050:16:13

shot of this. Apparently if you get back on, if your bike is OK, you

0:16:130:16:20

can get back on and go away. Now, if it is the third time, you

0:16:200:16:30
0:16:300:16:32

deserve what you get! Hopefully nobody will crash three-

0:16:320:16:41

times! This is what the riders come to get their leathers fixed up.

0:16:410:16:48

Over the years, here at Indianapolis, they have been kept

0:16:480:16:54

pretty busy. Indianapolis is one of the newest additions to the

0:16:540:16:58

calendar. We have only been coming here for three years and have had

0:16:580:17:08
0:17:080:17:09

three different winners. In 2008 there was a hurricane and nearly

0:17:090:17:15

upstaged the main attraction. red flag, that is it. That is going

0:17:150:17:21

to declare a results for Valentino Rossi. It is the worst conditions

0:17:210:17:31

of all my career. Valentino Rossi was fighting for the win again in

0:17:310:17:38

2009, but it was Jorge Lorenzo who stole the show. Unbelievable!

0:17:380:17:43

Valentino Rossi has just given away 25 points. Jorge Lorenzo crosses

0:17:430:17:53
0:17:530:17:54

the line as winner. 12 months ago Ben Spies but the home fans fired

0:17:540:17:58

up by getting pole position, but it was Dani Pedrosa who took the

0:17:580:18:08
0:18:080:18:10

chequered flag. Dani Pedrosa wins in the Brickyard. The teams and

0:18:100:18:15

riders love coming here, the iconic fact that it is the Wimbledon of

0:18:150:18:20

motor racing. At turn one they're off the main straight into this

0:18:200:18:27

corner. It is scary. 200 miles an hour. You have got to get all the

0:18:270:18:32

way down to second gear, on the front brake. What has let this

0:18:320:18:37

place down has been the patchwork quilt of surfaces. It has been

0:18:370:18:45

bumpy and blow to people fell off. Even Valentino Rossi crashed out

0:18:450:18:55
0:18:550:18:58

three times in practice. There was never really any complaints about

0:18:580:19:02

the first four corners, but it turned five other riders said it

0:19:020:19:09

was the motocross track. They have resurfaced 1.5 miles of the circuit.

0:19:090:19:15

It is like a billiard table compared to how it was. This turned

0:19:150:19:20

five is why Bridgestone have had to bring their hardest higher here.

0:19:200:19:27

They are really sliding through here. Here at turn nine and it is

0:19:270:19:32

still flat. Even Valentino Rossi looks happy about it. It must have

0:19:320:19:40

cost an absolute fortune to do this. Let's have the guys enjoy it.

0:19:400:19:43

It seems as if Valentino Rossi could have been better off to stay

0:19:430:19:49

with the little scooter. It was probably handling better than his

0:19:490:19:59
0:19:590:20:02

Ducati. He is the third Ducati. Valentino Rossi got qualifying off

0:20:020:20:07

to a bang with an early crash. Casey Stoner on at the Honda was in

0:20:070:20:17

this zone. Ben Spies was the only other guy remotely in touch with

0:20:170:20:24

Casey Stoner. Were gay Lorenzo has been behind us his team-mates in

0:20:240:20:29

every session and he had a really difficult qualifying and concede he

0:20:290:20:36

is only fighting for the podium, not the wind. Dani Pedrosa the

0:20:360:20:40

start on the second row, more than a second behind Casey Stoner. Cal

0:20:400:20:44

Crutchlow got up to the third row at one point, but he ran off

0:20:440:20:50

moments before the end of his quick lap and she will start from 11th

0:20:500:21:00
0:21:000:21:33

There was no holding back Casey Stoner yesterday afternoon in

0:21:330:21:42

qualifying. His 7th pole position in the season. I think that is the

0:21:420:21:52
0:21:520:21:52

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 77 seconds

0:21:520:23:10

national anthem. We should just Who are we to deny them this

0:23:100:23:18

fantastic tradition? A quick word with Casey Stoner. Track condition

0:23:180:23:23

seemed to have improved, but a question over them for the race

0:23:230:23:30

today. The track has not really improved since yesterday morning.

0:23:300:23:35

As soon as you go off-line it will be much worse than what it was on

0:23:350:23:40

Friday. It is going to be tough. Overtaking will be the hardest

0:23:400:23:47

thing. Hopefully if we get off to a good start, we can all be safe.

0:23:470:23:57
0:23:570:23:58

Good luck today. Let's have a look at Ben Spies. This is his home race.

0:23:580:24:03

He started from pole position last year and finished second. He has

0:24:030:24:07

not been back on the podium since he took his maiden victory back in

0:24:070:24:17
0:24:170:24:23

June. His only? Is a trapped nerve in his shoulder. Jorge Lorenzo he

0:24:230:24:29

rounds out the front row. The first time we had I took Yamaha

0:24:290:24:35

motorcycles on the front row this season. Let's have a look at Cal

0:24:350:24:41

Crutchlow. It has been a tough weekend for him. There is Colin

0:24:410:24:51
0:24:510:24:52

Edwards. He is the top riders here not with the factory. I heard last

0:24:520:24:57

night that he is not going to be with the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team

0:24:570:25:06

next year. I could performance from Cal Crutchlow on a performance - -

0:25:060:25:13

on a track that he does not know. James, we would all like to see you

0:25:130:25:19

back idea. A bit of resentment when you come back, still wishing to be

0:25:190:25:29
0:25:290:25:30

out here? Obviously, I still miss it. I will be back. You never know,

0:25:300:25:37

in the future at will just see what opportunities come up. How is your

0:25:370:25:47
0:25:470:25:49

hand? I saw Charlie Cox and he had a similar injury one week after me,

0:25:490:25:54

and he is struggling to still hold the beer glass. That's a big thing

0:25:540:26:01

for him! I know! It really opened my eyes to how serious this injury

0:26:010:26:10

could be. I have another couple of questions for you. What do you make

0:26:100:26:16

of the transition by Cal Crutchlow? You have had a positive start, but

0:26:170:26:26
0:26:270:26:28

it is not is easy as people think, is it? No, it certainly is not.

0:26:280:26:32

With the slowest bike, it is not easy at all. He has had an

0:26:330:26:36

operation as well since Silverstone. When you lose a bit of confidence

0:26:360:26:41

because of the crash, it is a very difficult job. He has qualified

0:26:410:26:46

pretty well. If you get a good start, you never know. What about

0:26:460:26:52

the Three guys on the front row, he is Germany on? If Casey Stoner gets

0:26:520:26:56

a good start, I can see a ten- second gap between first and third

0:26:560:27:04

today. I think there is only really Ben Spies to match him this weekend.

0:27:040:27:14
0:27:140:27:18

Thanks very much for talking to us, James is predicting that this race

0:27:180:27:23

could get stretched out. If it doesn't, well, question-marks about

0:27:230:27:27

how well the track will work in the second part of the race. We could

0:27:270:27:37
0:27:370:27:44

James Toseland has done a lot were physio than you ever did, Charlie

0:27:440:27:54
0:27:540:27:59

Cox! I can understand why your hand is not healing as quickly. This is

0:27:590:28:06

going to be a very interesting race. The big question is how out the

0:28:060:28:16
0:28:160:28:17

tyres will manage across the race is a balance between tyre pressure

0:28:170:28:22

and grip. Most of these teens found that if they get a higher tyre

0:28:220:28:28

pressure the to get less graining, but the do get more grip. What you

0:28:280:28:34

don't want is a tyre falling apart before the end of the race. Casey

0:28:340:28:37

Stoner has had tyre issues this season. It is very much about

0:28:370:28:43

trying to be as smooth as you possibly can. Mike Hailwood always

0:28:430:28:50

said you should win at the slowest possible speed. With the track

0:28:500:29:00
0:29:000:29:03

being resurfaced, nobody quite knows. You'll be able to see in a

0:29:030:29:09

minute which part of the track has been resurfaced, 1.5 miles of it.

0:29:090:29:15

If you run off-line then it is very difficult. This is coming up to

0:29:150:29:23

dissection word has been resurfaced. It is all brand new. The sad thing

0:29:230:29:33
0:29:330:29:34

is it is a shame they did not put at higher risk on beforehand.

0:29:340:29:39

Stoner was very unhappy about the group level. But Casey Stoner was

0:29:390:29:45

so astonishingly fast. He is like a kid that doesn't like any of his

0:29:450:29:54

Christmas presents! He is faster on the circuit than anybody has ever

0:29:540:30:04
0:30:040:30:13

been! We should see some action many of those as replicas, unless

0:30:130:30:19

you just the family members! Casey Stoner can bag a win this

0:30:190:30:22

weekend, he is going to be breaking the rest of the field because he

0:30:220:30:28

has already got that Dougherty two- point lead. He sounds nervous to me.

0:30:280:30:33

Who is not nervous when you are starting a 32 lap race in the sort

0:30:330:30:37

of temperatures? He has talked his way into it been harder than I

0:30:370:30:43

think it might be. He needs a clean start, to get away in front.

0:30:430:30:49

Passing is going to be difficult. It is going to be a dying line.

0:30:490:30:55

Lots of rubber being washed out. No real grip as soon as you are off of

0:30:550:31:02

the racing line. This is a huge place. It is of huge event.

0:31:020:31:08

Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I can tell you one thing about the Motor

0:31:080:31:15

City. There is no Greenpeace offices here! They away. Pretty

0:31:150:31:20

good start from Lorenzo, on the right. Casey Stoner is absolutely

0:31:200:31:28

flying. Round the outside, Dani Pedrosa, always a good starter, and

0:31:280:31:34

everyone is around two and three, clearly, Casey Stoner is holding

0:31:340:31:41

the line. Ben Spies caught completely bogged down in the

0:31:410:31:47

middle of that line. He is clearly of the bike! Casey Stoner has gone

0:31:470:31:53

back into third place. Very costly for Ben Spies. He has hung out to

0:31:530:31:58

die now. His team-mate the second. We know that Dani Pedrosa stars

0:31:580:32:03

like a firecracker, from Jorge Lorenzo, the reigning champion.

0:32:030:32:11

Nicky Hayden has had a quiet. got blocked in there, much of that

0:32:110:32:15

was down to Nicky Hayden, who got jammed inside. It is the home race

0:32:150:32:19

and your family are all here, but now Casey Stoner has got to do what

0:32:190:32:26

he was talking about and find a way of passing people on this awkward

0:32:260:32:32

track. He we're on the interval. Look at those marbles on the track

0:32:320:32:37

that Steve was talking about. Feeding through. We're going to

0:32:370:32:42

join the big oval. We're on the inside of the track now. A cracking

0:32:420:32:47

pace from Dani Pedrosa. He qualified more than one second

0:32:470:32:55

slower than his team-mate, Casey Stoner, who was on pole. Up on to

0:32:550:33:02

the banking now, for turn 16. At 200 miles an hour, before setting

0:33:020:33:08

up, and Dani Pedrosa gets it into that awkward turn. Across the slope

0:33:080:33:14

of the pastime. One down into the Brickyard. Casey Stoner looking for

0:33:140:33:24
0:33:240:33:24

a way past the reps all. -- the Repsol Honda. Behind them, the

0:33:240:33:31

thought of the Repsol Hondas, Dovizioso. When was the last time?

0:33:310:33:36

We have not even mentioned Valentino Rossi. He is than intent

0:33:360:33:41

place at the moment. He did not make a lot of ground up. The that

0:33:410:33:46

is the big move. Simoncelli looked perilously close to those marbles.

0:33:460:33:51

We had just said what a nice chappie was becoming, he is not at

0:33:510:34:01
0:34:010:34:02

all aggressive! What is it they say? Rub it down, bubble up? It is

0:34:020:34:12
0:34:120:34:13

always or work, and often painful. -- awkward. He does not mean to do

0:34:130:34:19

that again. Any slim hopes of the championship he had have faded away.

0:34:190:34:24

The man leading the championship is Casey Stoner, with a 32 point

0:34:240:34:30

advantage. The amount of rubber that is washed up there, because of

0:34:300:34:34

the grinning on the tyres. That has to go somewhere, and it goes on the

0:34:340:34:44
0:34:440:34:46

track. -- graining. Lorenzo is trying to punch a hole through. You

0:34:470:34:51

are looking at Lorenzo, in front of Casey Stoner. That looked a little

0:34:510:34:57

bit precarious. Because he passed on the outside he had to be careful

0:34:570:35:02

and judicious on the front brake. All the way through that first turn.

0:35:020:35:07

It is a very scary corner, loading up the front end. He is through to

0:35:070:35:13

second place now. If you wanted anyone to be due round there, as

0:35:130:35:17

Casey Stoner, it would be Dani Pedrosa. He is not in the hunt for

0:35:170:35:27

the championship. So, there is Marco Simoncelli. He is forming in

0:35:270:35:33

on the back of his best buddy, Jorge Lorenzo. He would like to see

0:35:330:35:39

him arrested, I think! Down the back straight we go. Casey Stoner,

0:35:390:35:44

starting to get closer. Hector Barbera, trying to get past

0:35:440:35:54

Valentino Rossi. That is not in the script! Valentino Rossi, we were

0:35:540:36:01

expecting him do end up being the fastest and the highest up the

0:36:010:36:07

leaderboard or the Ducatis at the end of the race. He got jammed into

0:36:070:36:14

the curl up. It all went horribly wrong. Your home is, as such, and

0:36:140:36:19

everything seems to go against you. Getting down as fixed-rate and then

0:36:190:36:25

hooking to the left, when you have got a moment like that, for two,

0:36:250:36:30

three and four altogether. Yes, it smooths everything all the the up.

0:36:300:36:37

Colin Edwards did not get -- Colin Evans did not get a good start area.

0:36:370:36:45

-- either. It is all ahead of him and you do not give these boys a

0:36:450:36:52

head start, I can tell you that. Casey Stoner has a clear track in

0:36:520:37:02
0:37:020:37:04

front of him. You can see the two Repsol Hondas, number 26 and 27.

0:37:040:37:13

This is Marco Simoncelli. Just be careful! It is Marco, can you come

0:37:130:37:23
0:37:230:37:24

out to play?! It is me, the guy with the hair! The Yamahas still

0:37:240:37:30

enjoying the handling. The is a very sweet handling motorcycle. It

0:37:300:37:37

looks it from where I am sad here now. They got new components and up

0:37:370:37:43

thes of the engines. Bearing in mind it would only be another

0:37:430:37:48

engine into the system, but both of them said that it was a minute

0:37:490:37:54

advantage that they got with the test at Brno. There is the Honda

0:37:540:37:59

behind, the factory Honda that Marco Simoncelli is on. He is in

0:37:590:38:06

the slipstream. He is not gobbling up that gap. He is the biggest

0:38:060:38:10

rider in the field. Looking at Nicky Hayden, paying a bit of a

0:38:100:38:15

price, trying to go round the outside! Is he close enough? Can he

0:38:150:38:25
0:38:250:38:26

do it? Boy, old boy! That was scary, as Pedrosa pushed him back. By the

0:38:260:38:36
0:38:360:38:39

time Dovizioso de grips from that it will be all over. -- regroups.

0:38:390:38:46

Casey Stoner is the first into a 1.39 per lap. Do the seal so there,

0:38:460:38:56

clean as a whistle. Nice job! -- Dovizioso. This is really close now.

0:38:560:39:00

Bike a matter of the 7th. His team- mate is in front of him. He wants

0:39:000:39:06

to get past. No surprise that Dani Pedrosa beaten into the first turn,

0:39:060:39:10

but the surprise that Casey Stoner has close them down. Casey Stoner

0:39:100:39:16

will be thinking about tyres. Do I want to get past, tried to run out

0:39:160:39:21

a lead, and then gone out my tyres? He is generally easier on tyres,

0:39:210:39:25

because of the weight factor. And because it is very sweet riding

0:39:250:39:31

style. Casey Stoner is the more aggressive of the two riders. He

0:39:310:39:38

does not crash it as such. It is amazing to watch him. That was

0:39:380:39:43

Marco Simoncelli, the body language of bike number 58. The current

0:39:430:39:49

champion back in front. Spinning up, coming out of turn 16. All the work

0:39:490:39:53

that Marco Simoncelli had done, getting past, he has got to do it

0:39:530:40:00

again. The thing that Casey Stoner has to consider, in second place

0:40:000:40:05

behind his team-mate, Dani Pedrosa, he has got to conserve his tyres,

0:40:050:40:11

but by the same token, but appears not in front he is not riding his

0:40:110:40:16

own race, so he cannot be as smooth as he would want to be. This is all

0:40:160:40:22

going through your head as -- at the same time as you are trying to

0:40:220:40:25

write one of these monsters around the circuit, so you have got to

0:40:250:40:29

take all of that into account. Casey Stoner will be having a good

0:40:290:40:33

look at the clipboard everything he comes through, and when he has a

0:40:330:40:37

big enough gap the Hendon, you can explore how easy it would be to get

0:40:370:40:47
0:40:470:40:50

past. -- gap behind you. Number 11 is on a roll. He is coming through

0:40:500:40:55

nicely. He will never recover from that mistake because he is out of

0:40:550:40:59

touch with Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa. You do not get those guys

0:40:590:41:06

a five-second head-start, Ben Spies. A in my opinion he was the only

0:41:060:41:13

other rider on another manufacturer's machine, the Yamaha

0:41:130:41:17

in the 50th anniversary covers, as it was in Laguna Seca, he was going

0:41:170:41:23

to be running with these guys have got a clear track. He has decided

0:41:230:41:33
0:41:330:41:35

that enough is enough. Oleg ban. Trying to brace. -- leg than. --

0:41:350:41:42

down. Dani Pedrosa will be having a good look at the back of his team-

0:41:420:41:48

mate's bike. Rear tyres do not seem to be a problem. It has been the

0:41:480:41:54

front everyone has suffered with. They are running the softest front

0:41:540:41:59

compounded they can. And it is still pretty hard. It is an

0:41:590:42:01

interesting concept that you sometimes run a softer tyre than

0:42:020:42:07

you want, even though the front tyres wear. With the harder tyre,

0:42:070:42:12

you get not as much grip. But bearing in mind it is the softer

0:42:130:42:22
0:42:230:42:24

tyre, it is still a very hard pan! -- tyre. Only Nicky Hayden is

0:42:240:42:34
0:42:340:42:41

running the softer of the two neatly. This time around, we will

0:42:410:42:48

get a clearer idea of how they can perform. The only guys in the 40s

0:42:480:42:57

are Pedrosa, Stoner and Lorenzo. That was the moment when it all

0:42:570:43:01

come back to Jorge Lorenzo. He almost ended up on top of the

0:43:010:43:06

Curragh. But the real top of the side that he lost it and he has

0:43:060:43:16
0:43:160:43:18

lost a lot of time -- the curve. I have never seen so much rubber on a

0:43:180:43:28
0:43:280:43:29

track. It looks like her car brace. -- a car race. If you look over,

0:43:290:43:34

you would just have to ride across the grass. That they're very from

0:43:340:43:39

their tyres just rolls up in a ball - you called it marbles, and there

0:43:390:43:46

is no grip, whatsoever. Yes, and expects to the tyres, and you could

0:43:460:43:56
0:43:560:43:57

almost have lost a wheel. -- it proving hard to pass, one that

0:43:570:44:06

Honda. We are riding with him now. There is that shot of him, and of

0:44:060:44:12

course Nicky Hayden as well. All of those hammer guys will be

0:44:120:44:22
0:44:220:44:23

disappointed about the start. -- does Yamal hard eyes. -- those

0:44:230:44:29

Yamaha guys. That is the clutch of three that are fighting it out for

0:44:290:44:39
0:44:390:44:51

when they were not all using the same tyres. That was or gay Lorenzo.

0:44:510:45:01
0:45:010:45:19

He has the hammer down. You can see good big black line coming out if

0:45:190:45:28

that Honda there. 20 laps to go of this, mate! This is his pass into

0:45:280:45:38
0:45:380:45:39

slipstream. They are doing 200 miles an hour. At 200 miles an hour,

0:45:390:45:44

it is all you can do to just hold on. Valentino Rossi is clinging on

0:45:440:45:54
0:45:540:46:08

to the back of the field. He is in probably come into the pits.

0:46:080:46:15

Whether that is an issue with tyres. He is last on the track, behind

0:46:150:46:20

Karel Abraham. He is right that the back of the field. He is just

0:46:200:46:30
0:46:300:46:31

coasting. That is his 4th place in the championship out of the window.

0:46:310:46:36

His season is getting worse, not better. Ben Spies is still

0:46:360:46:46
0:46:460:46:53

struggling. He can't get past these two. Nicky Hayden hung out wide

0:46:530:47:03
0:47:030:47:11

there, and Andrea Dovizioso went through. Maybe they are going to

0:47:110:47:21
0:47:210:47:25

change the tire of Valentino Rossi. That is a very sad sight. This is

0:47:250:47:31

an Indy Car circuit, guys, so you have an inner pit road as well as a

0:47:310:47:40

pit lane. He is confusing when you have to go around the opposite way.

0:47:410:47:50

Casey Stoner still the guy a doing 39. Here is the replay. That was

0:47:500:48:00
0:48:000:48:06

very, very close. Andrea Dovizioso up the inside. I think he will soon

0:48:060:48:16
0:48:160:48:18

see a Yamaha moving upon him. This is where Ben Spies is fast, the

0:48:180:48:25

infield section. Would you run up again, I think he is! He might have

0:48:250:48:30

had a rotten start, but he is having about as much fun as you can

0:48:310:48:36

with you're leathers on. That is two different moves into laps.

0:48:360:48:45

Perfect. He is up into 5th place. Ben Spies is really on a move.

0:48:450:48:53

Their next target for him is Marco Simoncelli. He is Andrea Dovizioso

0:48:530:49:03
0:49:030:49:12

having a bit of the moment. - - tucked in a tiny bit there. It was

0:49:120:49:15

enough for Ben Spies to know that was a green light for him to get

0:49:150:49:23

past. When Casey Stoner is at the front, he keeps braking all the

0:49:230:49:31

records! There is a graphic picture of how much rubber is on this track.

0:49:310:49:38

Casey Stoner is putting a lot of it there himself! 18 laps remaining.

0:49:380:49:48
0:49:480:50:03

length of the Straits - - districts. Ben Spies is a very economical

0:50:030:50:10

rider. He gets his elbows out nice and wide. He comes from man

0:50:100:50:18

handling big motorcycles around. He is looking forward to next season

0:50:180:50:28
0:50:280:50:53

when the Bank's call up to 1000 cc. back and watching this. I think the

0:50:530:50:58

best opportunity for Ben Spies would be keen to turn 10 or in to

0:50:580:51:08
0:51:080:51:14

turn five. Marco Simoncelli is holding him up a bit now a.

0:51:140:51:22

predicted, he just taxied down the inside. And Trevor... Marco

0:51:220:51:32
0:51:320:52:07

what is going on behind its Casey He is going round two seconds

0:52:070:52:15

slower than anybody else. There is something seriously wrong with his

0:52:150:52:25
0:52:250:52:29

motorcycle. He did crash in qualifying. I would have expected

0:52:290:52:34

him at least to be the lead Ducati. He always manages to pull himself

0:52:350:52:44
0:52:450:52:55

through the fields, so it is seconds adrift of the guys at the

0:52:550:53:05
0:53:050:53:12

front. I think that must have been a mistake. You you so much time

0:53:120:53:20

when you run wide here because there is no grip. Marco Simoncelli

0:53:200:53:30

is basically working himself backwards at the moment. Then Spies

0:53:300:53:40
0:53:400:53:41

is now lapping faster than Casey Stoner. Next on his list is Jorge

0:53:410:53:51
0:53:510:53:54

Lorenzo. Al barrow-boy to stare their stamina and down the inside

0:53:540:54:00

of Nicky Hayden. He won't be wearing that Helmut again! Nicky

0:54:000:54:05

Hayden being chased by Colin Edwards, who also has a different

0:54:050:54:13

style Helmut this weekend. Nicky Hayden gave his all early on.

0:54:130:54:17

the one guy that has gone for the softer of the two option front

0:54:170:54:24

tyres. Well, he had his moment in the sun, but now she is paying for

0:54:240:54:34

that investment and he is staring down the barrel of 9th place. We

0:54:340:54:40

are getting less from Randy Dick Cheney than we thought he would - -

0:54:400:54:50
0:54:500:55:01

we thought we would. - - Randy de Puniet. All these bikes are really

0:55:010:55:05

struggling, these Ducati motorcycles, are really struggling

0:55:050:55:15
0:55:150:55:18

with not having much front end feel. Cal Crutchlow just taking care of

0:55:180:55:28
0:55:280:55:28

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 77 seconds

0:55:280:56:10

that Hass stake. - - Randy de you can have the most enjoyable

0:56:100:56:16

ride of your life and not win the race. I am sure Ben Spies will

0:56:160:56:22

enjoy this race, but just not the result. Casey Stoner Well, at the

0:56:220:56:32

race - - at the rate it is going. He is still going very quickly.

0:56:320:56:39

Let's to think about the politics of these two team-mates. Ben Spies

0:56:400:56:48

wants to get on the podium at his home Grand Prix. If Jorge Lorenzo

0:56:480:56:58
0:56:580:56:58

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 77 seconds

0:56:580:57:46

gets past him, that will cost them be his 30th winner. Ben Spies is

0:57:460:57:56
0:57:560:58:05

really giving a big look at his and best aboard comes out to tell

0:58:050:58:15
0:58:150:58:20

him not to. Here we go! Can you imagine trying to stop them despise

0:58:200:58:25

taking a podium in his home Grand Prix. You would have to stretch out

0:58:250:58:33

a piano wire! This is where it Jorge Lorenzo is so neat. Very,

0:58:330:58:41

very much so. There is something about riding in your home Grand

0:58:410:58:49

Prix. It certainly did in my career! If you can just keep things

0:58:490:58:53

running in the right direction, with the crowd behind you. I feel

0:58:530:59:03
0:59:030:59:21

it is just a matter of time for Ben of last position. Valentino Rossi

0:59:210:59:28

is still circulating, by the way. He seems to be getting back up to

0:59:280:59:38

speed. What is going on? Something peculiar went on with him. Oh well

0:59:380:59:43

find out about that later. Maybe she had a spare plug in his pocket,

0:59:430:59:53
0:59:531:00:04

or something. Surely, it would have ran into the back of him. Not Ben

1:00:041:00:11

Spies' problem. Almost ran wide and lost a huge amount. When Ben Spies

1:00:111:00:18

looks over his shoulder, he has got past, cleanly. Slipstream in, down

1:00:181:00:22

the inside, caught on the brakes. Then Jorge Lorenzo looks to cut

1:00:221:00:28

back, but he cannot, out onto the dirty part of the track and he has

1:00:281:00:37

to slow the bike right down. That says it all. A interest in the,

1:00:371:00:41

Marco Simoncelli has got some issues, because Colin Evans has

1:00:411:00:51
1:00:511:00:52

gone past him. Maybe it was that tyre issue, the front pad, going to

1:00:521:00:56

softer pressures on the tyres and they have started burning up.

1:00:561:01:03

was not the smoothest, we know. This is a potentially shocking

1:01:031:01:13
1:01:131:01:13

result for Suzuki. He is up to sixth place. Poll Anne one, over

1:01:131:01:22

the start-finish line. -- turn 1. I suspect that is because of that run

1:01:221:01:29

by a. Everyone is getting past Marco Simoncelli. As Steve was

1:01:291:01:34

explaining, his front tyres, they are getting more grit out of the

1:01:341:01:41

rear, than the front. Wide open was the gesticulation to number 19.

1:01:421:01:49

This will be something a bit special for him. True old Nicky

1:01:491:01:56

Hayden. Remember him? He was doing his level best, and importantly,

1:01:561:02:03

for him, he remains the leading candidate. Behind him is Randy de

1:02:031:02:11

Puniet. Valentino Rossi is currently in the keen position. He

1:02:111:02:21
1:02:211:02:22

has Toni Elias just in front of him. -- in 15th position. Marie cannot

1:02:221:02:27

wait for the explanation for this. We saw Valentino Rossi trying to

1:02:271:02:31

get in to the pits, then he cancelled that decision and seemed

1:02:311:02:39

to be picking up, then we saw this Capirossi. What is that about? Pass

1:02:391:02:45

- Loris Capirossi. He has not had any feeling in the front, from the

1:02:451:02:51

fourth lap. So something wasn't working for Loris Capirossi, and he

1:02:511:02:58

decided not to wear himself out by going round and round. Look at that.

1:02:581:03:03

We have looked at the animation of this man, throwing his body, just

1:03:031:03:09

chucking himself or were. This is turn six, whether it looks as if he

1:03:091:03:18

has crashed. Anti-virus the bike out of there. He is something else.

1:03:181:03:26

-- and he fires the bike out of there. Here is extraordinary, this

1:03:261:03:35

boy. 39.9 plays for the 0.3. He is not going to seriously threaten

1:03:351:03:45
1:03:451:03:45

Casey Stoner. -- 40.3. It will be a Herculean task. We are riding with

1:03:451:03:54

him now. With the PAC has been setting, what he has been doing, if

1:03:541:04:01

anyone is going to burn any tyres out, it will be him. He actually

1:04:011:04:07

got a way, OK, at the start, but watch, in a minute. It is not good,

1:04:071:04:14

but he is on the inside. He is in fifth place. Then he gets pushed at

1:04:141:04:24
1:04:241:04:40

there. It is like a horse race, getting jammed on the rails! We end

1:04:401:04:50
1:04:501:04:52

were you in one of them? -- when were you? He got pushed out a

1:04:521:05:02
1:05:021:05:04

little bit at that point. There was the moment. I would say, then, he

1:05:041:05:11

was in the wrong gear, everything was going horribly wrong. It was a

1:05:111:05:18

grand recovery. Casey Stoner has done another quick lap, of De

1:05:181:05:28
1:05:281:05:42

the track, every single lap, it is getting better. More importantly, I

1:05:421:05:51

was about to say, that Ben Spies is about to tens of a second faster in

1:05:511:05:57

this Larne, but that is not enough. Absolutely not. Another Ducati

1:05:571:06:06

bites the dust. It would be nice to get a shot of the front pad. --

1:06:061:06:15

tyre. We are down two Ducatis, we still have a few more to go. His to

1:06:151:06:25
1:06:251:06:27

be nice to see if we had any issues with the tyres still shredding.

1:06:271:06:35

just want to see what kind of state the front tyre is. Across the yard

1:06:351:06:44

of bricks as they call it. It was made of bricks, in 1909. They are

1:06:441:06:54
1:06:541:06:57

is market -- Dovizioso, in fifth place. I am guessing that Marco

1:06:571:07:07
1:07:071:07:12

Simoncelli has a tyre problem, he is found in a place. -- down in

1:07:121:07:20

eighth place. Valentino Rossi's lap time lasting round was 1.41 0.3. He

1:07:201:07:27

is lapping faster than everyone else, up to Colin Edwards. Whatever

1:07:271:07:36

was going on with him, it is now fixed. Maybe he could use the

1:07:361:07:40

banking to cut some of the corners out. He was over the marbles there,

1:07:401:07:46

that was pretty impressive. have to be very aware of the price

1:07:461:07:50

of that, that track looks absolutely horrible, but sweeping

1:07:501:07:57

the track is not an option. trouble with doing that is that you

1:07:571:08:01

start sweeping some of the rubber of it, and some of the gravel

1:08:011:08:11
1:08:111:08:11

across it. That is how it would look at, that is useful for Casey

1:08:111:08:16

Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo's team-mate. Ben Spies has done hand at

1:08:161:08:22

something of a favour by getting past. -- bun him something of a

1:08:221:08:32
1:08:321:08:53

hot, sunny afternoon in in the lap moment. I do not see any graining

1:08:531:09:03
1:09:031:09:06

on the tyres of Dani Pedrosa. you were seeing out there, Ben

1:09:061:09:12

Spies crashed out handsomely with the crash and the Czech Republic.

1:09:121:09:18

That put paid to any impinges he had of the championship. Casey

1:09:181:09:26

Stoner was leading the championship, certainly after he got bald author,

1:09:261:09:31

Valentino Rossi, who is absolutely charging through the field now. He

1:09:311:09:41
1:09:411:09:49

is absolutely on it, he's and 12 winded. He has some issues. He is

1:09:491:09:58

willing to say, go past me, I have got something wrong. I reckon that

1:09:581:10:05

your earlier clue was the one. The front tyre. He was the one that

1:10:051:10:11

went for the softer option, for the empire. I was stupid, I was done,

1:10:121:10:17

he was saying to himself. Probably not to himself, but anyway. It has

1:10:171:10:22

not work. It seems that Campbell did not pay off for Nicky Hayden.

1:10:221:10:32

It looked good at the beginning, but a lot of things do. This is

1:10:321:10:42
1:10:421:10:43

Hector Barbera, No. 8. All of those guys, hard chargers from the world

1:10:431:10:53
1:10:531:10:54

of 250s. He is in a third of that pack. And that is the battle for 9,

1:10:541:11:04
1:11:041:11:11

in the 1.39s. No one else is doing that at the moment. Coming out of

1:11:111:11:16

that turn 16, it is extraordinary. The bike gets slammed into the

1:11:161:11:22

corner, drifts through, he likes up the rear pack, then he kneels it

1:11:221:11:25

and climbs to the front of the motorcycle and guests up to 200

1:11:251:11:34

miles an hour. I bet that these guys are pleased they signed him up,

1:11:341:11:40

this year. And I bet that Ducati are disappointed they didn't, and I

1:11:401:11:50
1:11:501:11:51

think, honestly, they could have done. Casey Stoner felt they were

1:11:511:12:01
1:12:011:12:04

not taking his illness seriously. He has enough of a buffer now. No

1:12:041:12:14
1:12:141:12:16

one is going to catch him. Four seconds between Pedrosa and Stoner.

1:12:161:12:22

He has had a remarkable race, coming from 10 or 11 on the first

1:12:221:12:31

lap. He must have worked out those pals. He has had to do that,

1:12:311:12:37

passing guys, using different lines. And I think, Ben Spies now, has

1:12:371:12:45

settled for a podium position, which is pretty remarkable. A great

1:12:451:12:54

shock of Casey Stoner breaking with one finger. -- shot. The brakes on

1:12:541:12:58

that bike would be the same as for your Mercedes which weighs 2.5

1:12:581:13:08

tonnes. And it is like doing a handstand, every single corner.

1:13:081:13:15

the fitness levels, wearing everything, led us, hill mice.

1:13:151:13:21

Three laps to go. He is just cruising now. The Jorge Lorenzo is

1:13:211:13:31
1:13:311:13:31

four seconds back. He is one of the bigger guys in the field. Still, it

1:13:311:13:38

is still tiny by comparison. They are so compact, these riders.

1:13:391:13:46

Basically, the polar opposite to you, Charlie! They train to get

1:13:461:13:52

themselves so fit. Yes, but they are not man-mountains like you!

1:13:521:13:58

They cannot bolt up. They want to be as light and strong as they

1:13:581:14:03

possibly can, and one of the phenomenons up there is Dani

1:14:031:14:13

Pedrosa. Grappling with these monsters, 230 brake horsepower. The

1:14:131:14:15

power to weight racial for Dani Pedrosa has probably superior to

1:14:151:14:25
1:14:251:14:25

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 77 seconds

1:14:251:15:09

Hayden. Let's have a look at this line down into that corner. Marco

1:15:091:15:19

Simoncelli has now got this posse of maniacs closing him down. Round

1:15:191:15:29
1:15:291:15:30

comes Randy de Puniet. As soon as you run out wide on to deter key

1:15:301:15:38

part of the track, you have no grip. If you look at the left side of

1:15:381:15:45

Marco Simone Jelley - - Marco Simoncelli's tyre, it is completely

1:15:451:15:55
1:15:551:15:59

gone. When you have got new tarmac down, it is so abrasive, and it is

1:15:591:16:07

just tearing up the tyres. Brixton have gone to their hardest tyre,

1:16:071:16:16

but it is graining. They are all talking about the disparity between

1:16:161:16:26
1:16:261:16:26

the front and rear tyre. With the balance of a motorcycle, what every

1:16:261:16:32

you do, it is all about trying to balance it. Nicky Hayden is going

1:16:321:16:39

back out again because this way he will get a point for finishing.

1:16:391:16:46

They have not changed the front tyre, either. They had just checked

1:16:461:16:51

it to make sure he will not kill himself. We're on the last lap,

1:16:511:17:01
1:17:011:17:04

boys and girls. Andrea Dovizioso has not that far away, so I don't

1:17:041:17:14
1:17:141:17:18

think it is over yet. Lap times have dropped off a touch now, of

1:17:181:17:28
1:17:281:17:30

course, as they would too. Even this man's, Casey Stoner. There is

1:17:301:17:40
1:17:401:17:45

his wife. Hello! She is going to be a mum next year. That will keep him

1:17:451:17:52

busy! Just counting down the latter now for Casey Stoner. He has

1:17:521:17:57

finished on the podium at every single race this year except the

1:17:571:18:02

second one, where Valentino Rossi knocked him off. This will be his

1:18:021:18:10

30th win in MotoGP. He is A* and will be happy. A brilliant,

1:18:101:18:20

brilliant ride. His team mates Dani Pedrosa, in second place. Ben Spies

1:18:201:18:30
1:18:301:18:35

makes a to the last step of the podium. This is a great ride from

1:18:351:18:40

Alvaro Bautista on the Suzuki. The boys on the Rizla Suzuki Team will

1:18:401:18:50
1:18:501:18:50

be happy with that. Don't forget Colin Edwards, still in touch, 7th

1:18:501:19:00

across the line. My goodness me! Hector Barbera has crashed on the

1:19:001:19:06

last corner. You can see him at the end of the Straits with everybody

1:19:061:19:15

riding past him. The Casey Stoner acknowledging the crowd, and why

1:19:161:19:24

wouldn't you? Casey Stoner has won at the Brickyard. Will Hector

1:19:241:19:31

Barbera get the thing going again and record a finish? Apple position,

1:19:311:19:36

a lap record and a wind, it does not get much better than that, does

1:19:361:19:43

it? That is the clean sweep. He has not got going again. He will be so

1:19:431:19:48

cross with himself. You don't get points if you just walk across the

1:19:481:19:58
1:19:581:19:59

line, you need to bring your motorcycle with you. He just went

1:19:591:20:06

in too hard. No way. Across the kerb. What an ignominious way to

1:20:061:20:16
1:20:161:20:29

ensure race. That was expensive. The body work is about $5,000 alone.

1:20:291:20:36

Nicky Hayden with the crash by a Hector Barbera, that makes it up to

1:20:371:20:46
1:20:471:20:50

two points for him. It makes it worth venturing forth. I just of

1:20:501:20:55

Valentino Rossi shaking hands with Cal Crutchlow, they have have been

1:20:561:21:03

having a good fight with each other. Cal Crutchlow had not raced this

1:21:031:21:11

circuit before. Here is the moment that made it. Just moving past his

1:21:111:21:19

team-mate. I was going to say hang on to your hair, but that poor lad

1:21:191:21:29
1:21:291:21:39

does not have any! Ben Spies paid an enormous price for making a

1:21:391:21:43

little mistake in the first couple of turns. You never know where to

1:21:431:21:49

go, you think should I go white wides or whatever. Sometimes it is

1:21:491:21:56

just pure bad luck. Dani Pedrosa qualified as hard as he could, but

1:21:561:22:00

second behind Casey Stoner. Casey Stoner only beaten by four seconds

1:22:001:22:10
1:22:101:22:24

or so, so not the enormous gap that we might have expected. Ben Spies

1:22:241:22:31

10 seconds adrift after so many laps. These guys will be absolutely

1:22:311:22:41
1:22:411:22:43

exhausted. 28 laps and he is only 10 seconds off it. And at - - and I

1:22:431:22:49

bet about eight seconds of that was on the first lap. I could

1:22:491:22:56

consolation prize for Ben Spies getting on the podium. Spare a

1:22:561:23:04

thought for Nicky Hayden who had an absolute shocker. Alvaro Bautista

1:23:051:23:14

it is not hurting his championship race at all. So, Casey Stoner, from

1:23:141:23:23

Jorge Lorenzo. Dani Pedrosa has moved up into 4th place. Jorge

1:23:231:23:27

Lorenzo is sort of smiling, but you can be pleased because the gap is

1:23:271:23:34

stretching out. Valentino Rossi has brought to Championship places, not

1:23:341:23:39

one, because at that performance. Valentino Rossi is now back in 6th

1:23:391:23:49
1:23:491:24:06

place. Nice to see Suzuki's in there. I great day for Ben Spies.

1:24:061:24:11

Probably one of the best rides at your life if you had made a better

1:24:111:24:18

start. Yes, I pause and terribly bad, but just a lot of people got

1:24:191:24:28
1:24:291:24:33

Her after that happen, I just have to stay within myself. I needed to

1:24:331:24:39

be up there in the first four turns, but was just not there. I rode the

1:24:391:24:44

best I could. It was very hard to pass out there because we could not

1:24:441:24:53

get it done on this straight away. I was pretty happy with it. Thank

1:24:531:25:03
1:25:031:25:04

you. It is a nice way of saying that the

1:25:041:25:10

bike is not fast enough. It is not fast enough on the straight so you

1:25:101:25:19

have to get it done on the corners. That is a fantastic aerial view of

1:25:191:25:26

the circuit. It has even got an 18 hole golf course in the middle!

1:25:261:25:35

This track was built for Formula One... sorry, when Formula One were

1:25:351:25:41

here they went around the other way. Rear tyres were never going to be

1:25:411:25:46

an issue this week, it was all about the front tyre. There is

1:25:461:25:52

Valentino Rossi who salvaged a top 10 finish. I would love to know why

1:25:521:25:58

she pulled off and then managed to get his speed back. He has always

1:25:581:26:03

been pretty special. The Formula One guys raced on this the other

1:26:031:26:10

way round, but it is mostly known for the Oval, and what an oval it

1:26:101:26:20
1:26:201:26:30

Casey Stoner, congratulations. proved in the race. I made a few

1:26:301:26:36

mistakes and did not have any brakes. I touched Dani Pedrosa and

1:26:361:26:41

ran wide. It was very difficult to find somewhere to overtake on this

1:26:411:26:46

track because if you were not on the correct line, you're on the

1:26:461:26:53

dirt and you would be gone. We just did the best we could with the bike.

1:26:531:26:59

I am pretty happy with how it once today. It was just about getting

1:26:591:27:06

out to my home. I think the front tyre could have been worse but I

1:27:061:27:10

was having to push it. We got a good enough start to stay up with

1:27:101:27:15

the front guys and then made her way through. At big thank-you to

1:27:151:27:21

the team and everybody. Congratulations.

1:27:211:27:27

At very eloquent, if subdued summary. You could see that if you

1:27:271:27:33

made the tiniest little mistake or tried to run wide then you lost so

1:27:331:27:43
1:27:431:27:43

much time. The answer was to make people go out on the wide. This is

1:27:431:27:50

set terrific facility you. 400,000 people come to this race, they Indy

1:27:501:28:00
1:28:001:28:03

500. We have had a really good We have really enjoyed her cells.

1:28:031:28:09

We have just about run out of time. Casey Stoner today broke every

1:28:091:28:18
