As ever a great photo shoot. That Marquez race face shot,its absolutely Stoner'esque behind the sunglasses. They look similar,ride similar and its not the first time this season at a quick glance I've had to remind myself its Marc,not Casey on the grid.

At this point I would just like to know how far off the track do you have to be for it to be considered skipping the corner? I'm not bitching because it really makes for fun racing(everyone can just go every willy nilly way they want), but just to be clear, how far away from the curb do you actually have to be for it to be considered an unfair move? Also, it looks like they are taking the corkscrew and making it into one of those pneumatic wine bottle openers... You know, the straight needle kind... Maybe we should rename that corner? ;-)
