I think title will have to wait for another race, Lorenzo will fight to the very last moment.

Looking forward to Marquez on Stoner Curve. Might be sliding the Honda real purdy there.

I want to see if Marquez breaks Hayden's lap record at P.I.

MotoGP.com shows Hayden holds the "circuit record" at 1' 30". But Stoner has the fastest lap at 1' 28" Which is also the best pole record lap time.

Correct. I should have said fastest race lap.

Anybody taking bets on if the Moto3 speedsters will hold it flat through turn 3?

Damn I'd like to see that if it happens.

MM
DP
JL
VR
CC
AB
Esp
a Ducati

I think my prediction is pretty lame really.

A Spanish guy
A Spanish guy
A Spanish guy
An Italian
A Pom
More Spanish guys
Another Italian

There that's better

When did they resurface? Sometimes a new (green) surface doesn't enable fast laps.
