Rossi two seconds off the pace in the wet: Bike must be finally getting sorted for the dry!
Certainly hope so.
Here's to a Yamaha Honda Ducati podium!



Edit: that will be NH on the 3rd step, not 46.

Are there team orders at Yamaha?

What if Spies out-qualifies JLo? (not likely, but who knows?)

Will Spies even obey orders to make sure JLo finishes ahead of him?

I'm pretty sure there are no team orders in motorcycle racing.

I simply can't imagine JLo needs Ben's help at this point.

I am sure if it comes to that point, Ben will more than help, if he is able.

Both Nicky and Vale look much more comfortable on the Duc. That is just an anecdotal observation, but they appear tp be more comfortable.

Nicky was impressive throughout the session, as was Spies.

What an awesome track. I smile just watching them ride around at Aragon.

Rossi's bike had gearbox problems it seems. Good ol' Duc reliability issues

If the situation occurs where there would be any such thing as an indication from team management to Spies in the race to give J-Lo anything, I do hope he will roar past pit lane with his left middle finger raised firmly in Jarvis' direction..

FP3 wet again.
Watching QP for moto3 at moment and it is dry.
But commentators saying more rain imminent.

As I type Ian Wheeler saying spots of rain around the circuit.
