Video: MotoGP testing in Malaysia plus 2007 F1 review

My favorite motorsports blog axisofoversteer has a semi-exclusive video of the recent testing done by the big MotoGP teams in Malaysia, it also includes a short interview with Rossi. No music-just the sounds of the machines. Unfortunately I don't know how to embed their media players files here.
Motogp Testing
Can't forget our fans of 2 wheeled oversteer, here is a clip from this past week's MotoGP testing in Malaysia.

Valentino Rossi had a goofy moment but as you'll see he's pretty stoic about it, broken bones are nothing for these guys. Danni Pedrosa crashed too but did get hurt enough to have to spend some time away from the track.

The unpainted bikes look wicked and sound fantastic. Perhaps because I'm a sick person, I really enjoyed peeking in on the de-breifs and the body language riders use to communicate with engineers.

In the video we see, Rossi (Yamaha), Andrea Dovizioso (JiR Honda), Capirossi (Suzuki), Melandri (still not comfortable at Ducati), Alex DeAngeli (Gresini Honda), Casey Stoner (Ducati), Hayden (Repsol Honda), Jorge Lorenzo (Rossi's new team mate at Yamaha), DePuniet (Honda), Colin Edwards (Yamaha tech3), Pedrosa (Repsol Honda).

about 10 minutes.
From the same site, 2007 Formula 1 season review, very entertaining, lots of eye candy.

This is truly brilliant editing and producing. If you followed the season you will recognize every moment, every storyline and even get all the in jokes. The music choices on this highlight reel from the 2007 FIA Gala are fantastic and right on target
But the stroke of genius is during the Hungary pit stop montage: check out the Fernando scans though the "radio stations" a short clip of "Anything you can do I can do better" from the Alonso/Hamilton Mercedes commercial from earlier in the year is heard.....Genius.

This one is a keeper. I have changed the video from flash to a downloadable h.264 video (65 megs) which should also stream on many computers. Let me know if you have any problems with it.
The highres version is on that page at the bottom, right click save as.
