    Legend. After my fuck up with the races in October the other day, I was starting to wonder if my mind was giving up on me, haha.

    My main takeaways from the presser were
    Rossi doesn't sound confident of battling for the championship but sounds optimistic about improving after testing.
    Vinaeles is confident but not as confident as the press has made him sound during testing.
    Marquez was playing his cards close to his chest but couldn't hide his confidence.
    Lorenzo sounds optimistic about Qatar but realistic about how much the bike has to improve to be competitive over the rest of the season and knows that he has a lot of work to do.

    Apparently theres a chance of rain for Qatar which means the race might be cancelled. Dunlop are flying in wet tyres for the Moto2/3, and while Michelin did bring wets for the GP, the riders have final say on whether or not the race will go ahead as glare from the floodlights is an issue.

    Apparently only needs one rider to say no... looking at you George!

    He would be a very unpopular lad though (well more than he is already)... he'd have to factor that in. Sand and gineys and all that.
    Anyway, fingers crossed for no rain.

    Judging from the presser they all seemed quite concerned about racing in the wet. Not just because of the lights but also the sand that's always present at Qatar. A race in the wet could turn into a disaster really. Anything could happen if there isn't good visibility.
