I wonder why, in the Superstock 1000 2nd free practice, which was fully wet, all the Panigales were in a bunch at the bottom of the timesheets? Excepting La Marra, who maybe didn't go out? A 1098R came in 2nd fastest.

The Panigale's probably don't have much info on wet set up. The 1098 has been around for awhile, they have lots of data to go by.

Did not set good enough time when the track was dry. After that it was all wet and no chance of time improvements.
