    I'm thinking that if Marquez puts himself in the top 3 then it's gonna be a long season battling him for the other guys. :evil He sure looked like the old pro taking that win at COTA.

    edit: but.... Rossi is gonna pull the rabbit out of the hat and win this one :deal

    This track tends to keep riders more bunched up with lots of bumping and passing.
    Could be a very exciting race.

    I fear this weekend we will see Nick Harris choking on the ejaculate of a certain little Spaniard.

    Yes, if you observe closely the the logarithmic rate of increased, overt adoration towards the Spaniard from Harris over the course of the last two grands prix, we are just moments away from that very awkward situation.

    I think if Lorenzo gets his setup right, he can hang with and beat MM. Still, I am picking MM for the win and Lorenzo as runnerup with Dani third.

    I think we´re yet to see that MM/DP/Hondas will rule also at Jerez, like they did in the previous round. Factory Yamahas (and probably Cal as well) should be much closer, at least on paper.

    The Yamahas pretty much own Jerez. Honda will be closer than at the test, but you'd have to be brave and foolish to vote against at least two Yamahas getting on the podium.

    Whichever way you look at it, it should be a goody! Lets just hope the weather co-operates.
    Could be a classic.!! Bring it on!

    I think the combination of a tight track with elbows flyin' and fairings scraping plus a Yamaha-favorable venue dictates that Crutchlow will win with VR 2d and JL 3d. MM crashes and DP gets pushed back. Nicky keeps backin' it into every corner to no avail.

    Guess we will get another glimpse into how "Casey Stoner-like" Marc Marquez is, then.

    An all-Spanish podium seems likely to me, but the exact order is anyone's guess.

    What I truly hope to see is Hayden finish ahead of his new teammate for a change.

    Should be fun to watch the fight for positions 4 through 7.
