Will be an emotional round for certain. I hope to see Alvaro back on the podium.

More than usual: hoping for a good race race with no injuries.

60% chance of rain Sat. and Sun.
I hope the track crew is up to the challenge this year.

I hope that Casey will feel better. If he is able to mix it up with Dani and Jorge, is there a chance that he will be a team player? It would be nice if he could steal some points from Lorenzo while allowing Dani to take 1st, I really want this championship to go down to the wire.

The slower speeds in the rain might let Stoner keep up with the front two this time. I really want to see this one down the the wire.

It is almost at the Equator, I don't think you often get constant rain, like you might get in Europe, for example. More common to get very intensive showers, and when the sun returns, it'll dry the surface very quickly.

No. I don't think there is a man in this field that will race for second. Plus, Stoner wants to go out in blazing top-step glory, not warm fuzzies from the winner.

Crutchlow owes HRC a headache.

High drama already as Marverick Vinales says he has quit the Avintia Blusens Moto 3 team, in an effort to leverage his way into Moto 2 next season.
