Lorenzo is in devastating form and Mugello is a favorite track, so its hard to bet against him. That said, it will be highly influenced by the Q. If there are 3 riders in front of him on Lap 5...

Well, you know ... Lorenzo is more a rider than a racer. Whichever one has the setup will pull a 4 second lead and ride it for 20 laps. The 'race' will be for 4th and 5th.
