    The chap in white is, I believe, the pope.

    Hmm. Had 3 shandies and wandered into the bike racing forum by mistake.

    The name of this forum gives a clue who they are. One is a multiple MotoGP champ and is quite good.

    Hope your head is OK in the morning.

    Bear in mind that a lot of the Italian/Spanish riders are Roman Catholic in the main. For them, meeting the Pope is a big deal and reading Marc's comments on wanting peace with Rossi, well, that is a great sentiment and very much in keeping with professing his faith. Being prepared to be part of the group is also a statement, not just because it is good for MotoGP politics, but that the Pope recognises sports as important in people's lives etc... The helmet jokes got rather wearying though.
