MotoGP: Italy (spoilers al dente)
 
yooperbikemike is snoozing, so ...

It's easy to say a win at Mugello will be crucial to Lorenzo (given the way Pedrosa was looking really shaky just two rounds in, and two rounds after that started looking like the favorite again). But after Lorenzo's poor race at Le Mans, Mugello might well show whether he will be able to slow or stop the gap to the factory Hondas. If the track is cool (unlike Jerez, where the heat supposedly took away the M1 edge-grip advantage), and Lorenzo doesn't finish strongly, I imagine there's going to be a sense of doom in the Yamaha team.

Yeah, but there's that Rossi fella who is gonna win for Yamaha.

It's actually still quite chilly here. Winter is hanging on.....

It's going to rain, on Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Sunday, not so sure. This could end up saving Yamaha, as I think otherwise, they could get spanked by Honda. Badly.

In fact the route through the western alps was aborted due to the weather, and had to face the prospect of being gassed in a bloody tunnel!

Still, the scooter GP goes on. And I love it!

Love this track. Love the wild front "straight" with kinks and dips at very high speeds, plus all those cool uphill esses and every other damn thing about Moo-Jello.

Video of Yamaha on-board lap. (You can simulate a Ducati on-board lap by freezing the video for two seconds at the entry to each corner. :D )

I can only hope if it does rain it's as good a race as Le Mans -- there was a lot of passing there for a wet race. And for the championship's sake, that Lorenzo takes it.

Mugello is one of the greatest tracks, a delight to watch even on the telly. Right there with Phillip Island and Laguna Seca. I went to Mugello in 2006, seeing that place live, itīs even better.

Yamaha must be worried, Lorenzo needs to bounce back quickly, but Honda seem to have the momentum now. And on the other side of that garage, Rossi must be worried, that if he gets his behind handed to him by his team-mate here, itīs gonna happen everywhere. 4 out of 4 rounds already, not looking good for him.

Righto, I'll start,

Pedrosa
Lorenzo
Rossi
Marquez
Crutchlow
Someone else


And if it rains, who knows. :lol3
