Interesting that he has 2 fingers on the clutch, based on where he is at that point of the turn, and where his left foot is, I don't think he's planning on downshifting soon? Wonder if has TC set very low and he applies a little bit of clutch slipping if he starts to overspin the rear?

Looks like this 1198 has no headlights and the ram air instead. wonder how much they could sell that bike for tomorrow in Italy with his number on it, his stickers on the windscreen, and his fingerprints?

I've noticed even with all the electronic aids on motogp bikes Rossi waits until the very last moment to fully release the clutch lever. The pic posted also shows a very rare head position of actually looking thru the turn rather than looking down.
