As a result of the Argentine fiasco,

…the Powers That Be issued this hilarious release “clarifying” the procedures to be followed in the event a great many riders find themselves on the grid, ready for their sighting lap, only to discover they have the wrong tires mounted. I’ve now read it three times, and each time it gets worse. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the new procedure is that all of the primarily red bikes go first, then the blue bikes, then the white ones, then all the others get in the back. That Danny guy decides what color your bike is, if it has multiple colors, and everyone knows Danny hates green. The qualifying placements are to be ignored completely, and the start is to resemble, as closely as possible, the start of a junior high school cross country meet. Some riders may find it advantageous to start from pit lane. Others may choose to start from the very back of the grid, facing the wrong direction, and run the entire race backwards. Valentino Rossi gets to choose his own spot, but can in no way start beyond the apex of Turn 1.

I think that about sums it up. Read it yourself, if you have 20 minutes you don’t care to ever get back.
