It looked like Lorenzo was working on the soft as a race tire option. Or maybe not.

Still, I think Rossi and crew were pretty desperate to come up with a set up that will work in QP. It will be interesting to see how that translates tomorrow afternoon.

Emmet and Harris were also talking about Rossi's race set up being balanced to come good in the second half of the race, a la Qatar.

I think we might see more bumping and banging between Rossi and Bautista as Alvaro has pretty decent pace at Catalunya.
