The second row can smell blood. Last year they were 2 seconds off - this time 4 tenths. As long as Bradl and AEspargaro don't dam it up the factory Hondas will be under pressure.

Rossi spent most of his time time trying to understand the hard tire. Lorenzo make a big step n the second session. Too early to panic.

Actually I don't think that did wear off for Hayden (especially since his window for winning had already closed :evil). It wasn't his choice - they declined to renew his contract.

People DID like it when Simo did it - his passion was contagious. The comparo with Marquez is apt. As the photo sequence shows, he is on the razor's edge. How long can you keep rolling sixes?
