If it is raining tomorrow, maybe VR had a better chance at setting up the bike.
A rain race would make for fun stuff.
After the qualifying session I think that we don't really need the rain to see fun stuff...
Great qualifying, none of the top four can be unhappy (well, maybe Pedrosa), and Bradl did pretty good too.
Rossi half a tenth off Lorenzo, a tenth and a half off Marquez and on par with Pedrosa. Looks like he made good use of that wet session.
This could be a very good race. And the weight of expectation has probably shifted to Marquez.
Nice to see Rossi right there.
Not nice to watch Pedrosa pick his nose and wipe it all over his face :eek1
2:15 remaining in Q2 Espargaro really lighting up the boot trying to get stopped behind Bradl.
Saw that too. Whatever works.
might be how nicky make the podium again
Not on that Ducati. Maybe next year.
MM´s seventh pole position this year!
Rossi sounded very positive after QP2, and actually he was less than 2 tenths from pole. Who knows maybe there's life in the old dog yet.
If the weather stays the same for the race as it was for quallies, the potential for a 4 way slugfest is there. It will likely be more of a 2 way battle between the kid and JL and that will be good enough to keep me glued to the screen.
A big FU to Rupert and his Fox Sports boondoggle for now also trundling Moto2 off to FS2 (which I don't get) along with Moto3. As always, if there is a way to fuck it up, someone, somewhere will figure out a way.
Get out the cocoa butter! Rossi tops warm up.
Here we go for Moto2..
Quite a race.
And Vale on the podium
Only because Pedro highsided out of the race.
And I really hope this had nothing to do with MM going wide on the entry to that corner, and damn near clipping DP´s back wheel. I could not tell from the footage, if they touched or not.
Now the title is MM´s to lose.
It was great racing, and an awesome tactical ride from Redding
Looked like a Dani mistake; Parrish on the BBC queried whether he'd gone down 1 gear too many, and high-sided when the pinned the throttle.
On the motogp.com broadcast somebody just explained, that there was contact, and as a result, the rear wheel speed sensor on DP´s bike was damaged, and this messed up the traction control, leading to the highside.
(IF that is true - dunno, but somehow it sounds a bit far-fetched to me, that you could make a direct hit on that tiny component - then Ben Spies is in fact not the unluckiest man in MotoGP.)
