I think Dani will bring it on raceday, but Jorge has the better set up.

Me

But... we've seen Hayden do well in QP before but that bike can't keep tires on it at that pace.

+1

Throughout FP and QP MM was having the same sort of moments he had on the moto2 bike. Just a lot of near attempts at binning it. I can understand about wanting to be close to Pedrosa to get some pace off of him but............ how bout a little gap for safety sake.

Fucking Crutchlow. WTF?

And how about that last lap for Pol Esp. in moto2 QP. Damn.

After getting a chance to watch the new Qualifying setup I have to say that it looks like Dorna finally got something right! I rather liked it!

The grid certainly doesn't look the way I would have predicted.

Crutchlow is a surprise in 2nd, as is Dovi on the 2nd row.

MM I thought would have been at least front row.

The biggest disappointment for me is Hayden. He's 1.5 sec back from his new teammate, and 2 sec from the front. I guess he's really past his sell date.

the best thing about this is that dovi is not normally a fast qualifier.He is quite often on the second row because he really tries for a good race set up.I am hoping that he can be there at the end with a little left in the tank!Onece the race starts and the track starts to get some rubber on it i think we will see dani come through but Jlo may have gone...

Remember, Nicky and Ben are both recovering from injury.
