Helluva a fast lap, but not so sure Lorenzo won't have a response in the race. The track temp seems to be the wild card -- what's it going to do to the M1's traction over 25 laps?

Love the usual pattern -- lots of anti-Pedrosa predictions, and as the weekend progresses, silence.

Was there really anyone who thought Rossi was going to keep a similar spot on the timing sheet as he did after FP2?

CC super impressive.

Pedrosa fan boy feeling good!

If it as hot or hotter tomorrow the tires will be a big factor. The bikes and riders who can save the tires the best will likely pick up a position or three between mid point and the finish. Race distance is a long hot ol' way.

Certainly the makings of a good race tomorrow with VR and MM surely to have pretty good race pace and CC hanging onto JLo and DP for dear life.

Flock of Seagulls will be P6 after the 1st lap.

Hm, well strike what I said about soft vs. hard -- Pedrosa says he's probably going with the soft cause the feel with the hard isn't good, but Crutchlow said the hard wasn't too bad. Lorenzo wouldn't say.

With tire drop-off issues, DP will likely try to pull a big gap in the first few laps.

The podium racing will likely occur between JLo, Crutchlow and Marquez.
We could have another finger waving finish.

Rossi would do well to let MM pull him along. Rossi will be lucky to finish ahead of Bautista.




DP
MM

Did anyone think Hayden was going to keep the 2nd spot he got in FP3 ? Looks like all the practices, the warm up and even qualifying were all about tyre choice. Everyone was fast on the soft, but the gamble is will it last, so were desperately working on getting the harder tyre to work. Race day we will see what they have chosen.

No one sane.

Hayden says he's going with medium compound (softer option) rear as he can't get the hard to work and it drops off big time after a couple of laps.

Even with DP having that crazy lap and, I'd love to see him walk away from the field, any race that threatens tire problems gives JLo a strong chance of winning IMO. The guy is just too ridiculous during the race.

I think he's going to hear some words about that. what the hell is he thinking? ya can't win it on the first lap, dude needs to chill, not like he's fighting for the lead. At least he only took himself out and no one else.
kinda boring race though, shame on Cal, he just may have been able to give the Spaniards some fits.
Edwards in 9th!!!! well, after half the field crashed out. oh well.

Yeah but last race he got his man, whereas this time he missed - just.

Is some mafia syndicate plunging on Rossi failing to finish lap one? (And calling in a little help. )
