Nobody liked Screamin' Johnny Green either, but he didn't bother me. Maybe my hearing empairment is a good thing?

Watch FP2 live now on Eurosport2!

I can't believe I survived the gap between hearing those motors again...

Glad to have Gavin and Nick to listen too, since our boys aren't as entertaining.

Last lap Nicky pulled a 58.2" and Rossi a 57.2", Nick has got some make up to do and I haven't seen a time from Dovi yet.

Was able to access the mixer now briefly at work to sample it. Fucking awesome.


re: mixer

It's not available on the videos from the library, it's only available live. The mixing volume is available everyday, the multiscreen will be available on Saturday and Sunday.

Kind Regards,

Only two tenths between the top Ducatis. Doesn't seem that Dovi is running away from Nicky.

Thx for the info swimmer.

MM, nice work in FP2, though he and Pedrosa (especially Pedrosa) are plagued by running off at Turn 1. Dirty track and high winds, but still.

Not sure I would put a ton of stock in MM's fastest lap in FP2. His second fastest lap of the session was a 1:58.380 . Rossi and Lorenzo were both running consistent 1:57's. Cal had several 1:57's as well.

I followed up a little

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it.

Don't worry, the new video player will be available for the videos from the library very soon. We are working on it.

Thank you. I was able to sample today. It's great. I can't watch many races
live so hopefully this could be incorporated into the new library videos. I've
subscribed for the last 3 or 4 years and this has to be the best improvement yet.
Watching/listening with no commentary and just sounds from the track is most
excellent. Great job to the motogp team for continuing to make improvements.

Looking at the analysis, Lorenzo and Rossi are looking really consistent, with strings of 1:57's, and a few 1:56's. Cal had two 1:57's in a row. Bradl had a nice string of fast laps, too. Marquez and Pedro look a bit hit or miss. Let's hope the track continues to clean up so we can see some true pace in P3.

214MPH by Dovi is blinding fast. Hard to believe that the bikes are going that fast. 205? 207? maybe, but 214 is out there!

Nicky lost another half tenth in the last session to Dovi. Get on it 69!!

So far these two are looking much better than Ducatis past.

Dovi has Ducati back into the hunt. He's riding even with Rossi and ahead of Pedrosa.

Though MM is fastest, he had many aborted runs. He's bound to fade over race distance and drop back into Dovi's sights. Don't we know Dovi would love to send Honda a message.
Dovi has a chance to finish the race ahead of both Hondas on the red headed stepchild, Ducati.

Wouldn't that be special!

Yes indeed. I for one would love to see Ducati put that bike back in the top 5 consistently.

With that big track I'm not surprised with the big HP the Ducs reportedly have. I don't know what they've run there the last few years though.
In any case I've said all along that Dovi has been underrated. Maybe he's got the skill to ride that thing harder than Rossi did?
But this is a big track and the Duc would shine there if anywhere.
Wouldn't that cause some stir with the Rossi fanzine if #4 got a few podiums on that bike.

I really like the new qualifying format. It brings more competition into the FP sessions.
More importantly, it assures Hector won't be in the way when the big boys are qualifying. I wonder if that wasn't one of the key drivers for the new format?
