    Rossi could do miracles @ Qatar, because he had the setup. Plus he got lucky, stayed on track after making contact with (Dani's?) bike. Now he doesn't have the setup, well at least in qualifying he didn't, and needs a bit of luck again. And it also looks like Honda is the bike to be on this weekend.

    But yeah, they'll have a race, and anything can still happen.

    Empty yesterday until MotoGP Qualy. Today looks like more of the same. Moto2 starts momentarily and T15 stands are about 2/3 full.

    Stands were almost empty for the Moto3 race. Great race.

    More problems and surprises than racing so far.
    Will MotoGP follow suit?

    Got the race on the other computer. It sure seems like Crutchlow has earned a full on factory ride. what has a rider got to do? He seems to have, of necessity, learned how to wring the tits off marginal equipment. Given the top gear I think he would represent a nice hybrid of MM's drive and Pedrosa's calculating style. He will never be as smooth as a Stoner or Lorenzo but he would make for great race action.

    Big winners are tech3 for not spending 400,000 euros to come to COTA for the test and Honda for not having to pay a fat salary to Stoner.
