Paris Hilton Says Some Things

Maverick ViƱales won the 125cc race in Le Mans - despite it being only the fourth grand prix the 16 year old took part in.

The hapless Paris Hilton, bolted on to his team as a kind of long-legged gargoyle and faux-team boss, commemorated the event (a few days later) like this on her website:

Yes, that's right, they WON FIRST PLACE. 

Although quite why they chose to use a picture of Maverick's team-mate, Sergio Gadea, is beyond us. Maybe they're simply mindless buffoons.

Mary and Ben Flip the Bird

Well, this is quite something now isn't it, readers:

Ben Spies and his mother (not in that order)
We get it guys, he's number 11. 

Thank God he's not number 10. Who knows what Mary would have put on display. 

Our eternal gratitude to @Rainbow_Starz8 for bringing this image to our attention. On a day when people have been breathlessly reporting that Casey says the 2012 Honda is "pretty good" and Valentino has selflessly pounded round laps of Silverstone simply to promote its new garage extension with no ulterior motive whatsoever, TwitGP once again brings you the MotoGP news that counts.

How long before Nicky and a friend demonstrate his number?

The Best MotoGP Quotes of 2011

Thanks to the fact we have Dictaphones everywhere, we're able to bring you some exquisite audio highlights from recent MotoGP contretemps. They sum up very nicely the especially edgy atmosphere of this season. We look forward to adding to them as the year goes on.

First up is, of course, the phrase that has now come to define a generation, courtesy of happy-go-lucky Casey Stoner, talking to Valentino Rossi in Jerez:

  "Your talent outweighed your ambition..." - Stoner speaks! by TwitGP

Track 2 on this impromptu TwitGP album is from the Estoril press conference, where Jorge Lorenzo criticises Marco Simoncelli's aggressive riding style:

I will be arrested... by TwitGP

File/save as/ringtone.

We particularly like the mature reaction of the journalists. If that clip isn't number 1 in some sort of iTunes chart by the end of the day, then something is seriously wrong, readers.

Next are the highlights from the pre-race press conference at Le Mans, involving Colin Colin first, and Jorge Lorenzo later. It seems both riders and journalists were engaged in some sort of world record attempt to use the word "pussy" as much as possible:

You don't get that in F1, no matter how many DRS wings they build.

And next a little number from the new, improved Dani Pedrosa, now available with added cojones. Listen to him dish it out to Simoncelli at the pre-event press conference at Mugello, even though he was sitting RIGHT NEXT TO HIM. Awkward. Sic takes a swipe right back, and manages to include Pedrosa's evil overlord Puig in the rebuke too. Classic.
