I think Dani will bring it on raceday, but Jorge has the better set up.
But... we've seen Hayden do well in QP before but that bike can't keep tires on it at that pace.
Let's hope Dovi beats Rossi in the race, I'd enjoy it IMMENSELY!
Throughout FP and QP MM was having the same sort of moments he had on the moto2 bike. Just a lot of near attempts at binning it. I can understand about wanting to be close to Pedrosa to get some pace off of him but............ how bout a little gap for safety sake.
Fucking Crutchlow. WTF?
And how about that last lap for Pol Esp. in moto2 QP. Damn.
After getting a chance to watch the new Qualifying setup I have to say that it looks like Dorna finally got something right! I rather liked it!
The grid certainly doesn't look the way I would have predicted.
Crutchlow is a surprise in 2nd, as is Dovi on the 2nd row.
MM I thought would have been at least front row.
The biggest disappointment for me is Hayden. He's 1.5 sec back from his new teammate, and 2 sec from the front. I guess he's really past his sell date.
the best thing about this is that dovi is not normally a fast qualifier.He is quite often on the second row because he really tries for a good race set up.I am hoping that he can be there at the end with a little left in the tank!Onece the race starts and the track starts to get some rubber on it i think we will see dani come through but Jlo may have gone...
Remember, Nicky and Ben are both recovering from injury.
Ben has been recovering from "injury" since he arrived in the paddock
Wouldn't bet on it.
You'll have to back that one up.
The rest of them
tounge in cheek, but he has binned a lot of bikes not all by himself. Ben + Ducati= long season
If you read the press releases (excuse-o-rama to the cynical):
Spies' back up bike didn't have the same rear setup as his preferred bike and he couldn't do the same lap times with it. He takes the blame for getting into T2 too hot and crashing.
Rossi blames traffic for not being able to set a good qualifying time. Says he has the race pace, though.
Marky and Pedro say they are happy and don't mention their incident.
Nicky blames bad timing and getting caught up in traffic on his fast lap. He gives Dovi props and says he will be checking his data.
AI29 says he was out of soft tires and will push for a top 10 in the race.
Should be an interesting race.
How long is his contract with Ducati? He got out qualified by a CRT. This is looking eerily familiar. :huh
Crutch bins it on lap 11
Well, it appears Lorenzo still rates Spies.
crash.net quoted Lorenzo thus this week:
"In theory for me it is the same, because I understand that Ben Spies is a great rider. Just he didn't feel great last season, but I believe he is one of the fastest riders in MotoGP."
Apparently Pedrosa had said that having Marquez alongside him in the same team was no big deal as he had always had tough team-mates, to which Lorenzo appended the quote above. Not quite clear where they were at the time - perhaps a media session at Qatar.
Signed up for the season pass last night (just in the nick of time... ) and looking forward to the races today.
Marquez (either 4th or the gravel trap)
Dovi (after running in 3rd most of the race)
Looked like the smoke was trying to get out of Dovi's bike.
JLo makes new helmet sponsor HJC look poor with visor failure at pit out.
