The way Stoner was hanging in that corner when he had some problems is amazing.

Dovi talked about this when he was at Honda. Stoner keeps the bike upright and his body hanging low.

Rossi is +1.2 second behing Lorenzo with soft tires. The soft ones have the white stripe on the side IIRC. So the "slow because of the hard tire" thing is just smoke and mirrors.

FP 3

RdP looked like he damaged his leg in a crash at the end though he walked away.

Spies crashed hard early on. Only did about 8 laps total. He will need some physio to be in good shape for tomorrow and Sunday.

I want to say that I love the look of this years San Carlo Gresini bikes. It may be unintentional, but I feel like there is a "Back in Black" type theme going on in paying tribute to Marco.

His Twitter feed said he didn't warm the front tire and the bike tried to snap his helmet off.

Must be the new paint?

Second bike wouldn't run.

I think Crutchy has learned how to use that soft tire very well. Awesome to see four Yamahas up front.
I expect QP to look a little different. I'll get to see that live on the BFP.

That and I think Yamaha decided to do what Honda did last season; flood the ranks with factory bikes and let the best man win.

But, I think we really won't know for sure how things are until Estoril.

For those with access take a look at the lap analysis pages for the practices. I'm thinking Rossi may be working on a cure.
