Looks like Bradl being Stoner and Sofuoglu being Rossi for Moto2. But Sofuoglu has not broken any of his bones yet! It's been suprising seeing him in the middles. Ok, he wasn't able to practice before but then again, I would expect him to be up above battling with Marquez and Bradl.

GREETINGS DAVID. I'VE BEEN WATCHING SOME PHOTOS OF MOTOGP FP3 AND NOTICED THE JAPANESE HIEROGLYPHICS ON THE SIDE PANELS OF THE M1. YOU WOULDN'T KNOW WHAT THEY MEAN, WOULD YOU?

I've only seen it in passing on the screen and I can't read the kanji characters, but from what I've caught of the hiragana, it looks to be something along the lines of the Japanese phrase "ganbatte kudasai", which basically means "Keep your chin/hopes/spirit up". I imagine it is a message of something along those lines toward Japan.
