Alright, I'll quote myself after FP1..........

OK, WTF with VR? 10th 10th????

Either he is sandbagging big time or someone forgot to give him the track diagram, 'cause Nicky is 3rd.

Or he is just WAY off the pace. Maybe 4 wheel racing is lookin' better all the time.......

Remember when Spies had hemostats left on his bike and similar incidents like that and we as Jo Public never or hardly ever get wind of what's really going on behind clouded doors.

I'm pulling for him lime many others and just hope they get a bike that Vale can ride fast, time will tell...


But in the meantime Rossi goes 4 wheel racing like you asked for

So for those with the motogp.com subscription have you checked out the new replay feature on live feeds?

As the session progresses anytime there is some sort of notable event like a crash, a rider goes off course or, presumably during a race there is a pass a little flag is placed on the bottom of the player window where the elapsed playing time is showed. You can hover over these flags and see what the "event" was. If you click on one of these events and play it the replay replaces the live feed in the main portion of the player and the live feed now becomes a reduced, smaller window playing in the upper right corner. When you are done watching the replay you just click on the smaller live feed window and select to end playing replay. Pretty awesome and I'm sure will be very nice feature during the race.

I guess you missed the explanations that Ben crashed very early in the session and did not turn hardly any laps. Can't be at the front if you aren't riding.

Yes, I kept hoping we'd see a quick lap on soft tyres at the end of the session that would bump him up to third.

Never mind, it will happen. I have complete faith.

They haven't even qualified yet and you have the whole season figured out already.

I doubt Cal will even finish ahead of Rossi in the points by the end of the season let alone Spies.

And that's +1.2" with Stoner held back by Bautista on his flying lap. So the 1.2" difference is more like 1.4.

Wolverine from Ducati said that they are hoping for a podium finish. Considering how bad Pedrosa is riding, this is doable.

This is what I saw on twitter, too. Everybody has the season figured out already. At least wait for the qualifying session or the first race.

Poor Dani. He has already earned the nickname Captain, and the ship piloting jokes are all over the 'net.

The Hondas are plagued with chatter.
