    Wow, so Dovizioso up there in 3rd on the Ducati (that Rossi vacated...), big crasher Marquez, youngster Bradl and Mr. Mouth Crutchlow ahead of Rossi, and Hayden right on Rossi's ass. Haven't seen it yet, but assume it was dry and good conditions for Pedrosa to set the fastest ever, and Lorenzo is right where you'd expect, Mr. Consistent. What's up with Mr. Valentino, forgot to take a spoonful of his geritol this morning?

    Numbers don't tell the story in this case. Find a way to watch Q2. Worth the effort.

    For a Pedrosa fan boy qually aint gonna get much better than that.

    You always wonder when organizers start screwing around with long standing rules trying to "improve the show" that they are going mess tings up but, no complaints from me about the new qualifying format.

    And again, CC does another great job after missing half the session. (and Pol P10 in moto2 QP)

    Great job from Dovi.

    Actually he was on it and I think he'd say he laid it all out. Just the last run was a train of sliiiiightly faster guys.

    If you get really close to the signage, you can see the word "crappy" in tiny letters between Ultra and Internet.
