Petrucci kicking it again in FP1 under the rain, very close to MM's time. Most underrated rider in the whole paddock.

I thought he was leaving because they never have been treated equal.

FP2 over.. Yamaha may have a long hard weekend.. Suzuki looks good, (when not sliding through the gravel). MM looks good to win his 666 straight at Deutschland.

Well I thought Yamaha was claiming they would be treated equal for the entirety of the season?

I would say you can count Lorenzo out for the win even if its dry. A banged up left hand/wrist is the last thing you need at this track where healthy left wrist and shoulders can sometimes cause problems because of the layout. Overcast cool days favor the Honda and Sunday is going to be overcast cool even if its not raining. Its hard to say where the Yamahas are at this point, but they struggled a bit in cooler temps this year. It will be sunny tomorrow so Rossi wil probably qualify decently, we will see about Lorenzo. His confidence has to be shattered at the moment, but we have seen this before and he keeps coming back strong.

They will be treated equally. If anything, J Lo struggling might see more attention directed at him to attempt to figure out his issue(s). If Lorenzo does poorly, it's because HE is doing poorly. There wont be any fingers to point at equipment or team support. He has been through slumps before and turned things around with a win streak. #NoConspiracy

Lorenzo won't get new bits after Brno. Jarvis said that in the press conference when Lorenzo announced he was leaving.

What will be interesting is if he is still within a shout of the championship and Rossi isn't, will they throw bits at him anyway......I doubt it.

Lorenzo is always good in the second half of the season. But I can't see him beating Marquez.

I think we will see Rossi in the top 5 after qualifying. I'd be shocked if he wasn't.

Vinales was strong as was Iannone so we will see if either can put their bike on the front row of the grid. If they can, they will definitely be a favorite since the cool weather should prevent the Ducati from chewing up the tires, and this track looks to be good for the GSX-RR. Still, it is one of MM's best circuits, so he may just be working purely on a race setup, and I'm going with him as the favorite to win.

I don't believe they will be treated equally at all. Lorenzo isn't their future anymore, so there's little to force them to continue supporting him as they have. As Richy mentioned, he won't be getting the newest equipment soon. It has nothing to do with a conspiracy, and more that in spite of what they say publicly, top teams tend to not go all out with a #1 rider/driver they know is leaving because anything they develop has a good chance of being carried over to the new team. Sure they want to win, but not at the expense of a 2017 advantage they might find.

I never count Lorenzo out. There has been too many times that he has struggled then all of a sudden on race day he pulls his disappearing act with a 3-4 second lead on the field.

IMO he just needs to get his confidence back. If he has a better chance of wining the championship than Rossi, I think Yamaha will continue to supply him with new parts. I don't think they're upset with him for leaving.
