    Only 4 tenths of a second between 2nd and 8th shows these bikes are pretty close (at least in qualifying. Half a second between Pedrosa and 2nd. Could he run away with this race? Doubt it; although I don’t see Crutchlow being able to maintain 2nd place. My guess is Pedrosa and Lorenzo will run away from the rest and race for 1st until Pedrosa makes a mistake and Lorenzo will pass him and disappear. I can see the potential for a 1st lap crash as Crutchlow, Bautista, Rossi, and Dovizioso try to get to the front. Can’t wait for the race. Crossing my fingers Rossi gets a podium finish!

    I’m pretty much with you, kev71. :)

    Honourable mention to Nicky Hayden too – it might be easy to dismiss him as “merely” a solid team guy, but where does he find the motivation to turn in quick times season after season when many racers in his situation might be happy to cash the paychecks while looking for a seat in a racing class where they might be guaranteed a spot in the limelight? Top man – if the Suzuki shows promise he would be my first choice for that team. And no – I’m not American, I just don’t think he’s ever got sufficient credit for being a world champ (and a darn fine dirt track rider to boot…)

    Bradl still not 100% on it this season, even if he is only 1/2 a second off second spot.

    Bautista? Crikey. I like him (even if I feel like wringing his neck sometimes!)

    Go Cal…

    Agreed Jonathan,
    I am hoping Ducati gets their bike sorted out to be battling for wins. I further hope that it is sooner than later and that Nick Hayden gets to reap the fruits of his labor over the years at Ducati.

    Should be a great race tomorrow.
