Its been a topsy turvey weekend so far and Lorenzo leaves me very puzzled, why was he in Q1 or was that just something he's taken a fancy too, so as to cause one of the lower orders not to get a chance at Q2.
Any track can be wonky the day after being rained on. Riders have enough practice time to dial in the bikes and have a much better idea how the new softs will work at this track. Don't expect to see so many crashes tomorrow.

Unbelievable that VR secured p3 only 3 days after deciding to have a go and see what he could do! Obviously underestimated himself and embarrassed many more able bodied riders. Wasn't sure what to expect in the race but after that nothing will surprise me.

Wow. Almost too much excitement for my old bones. I wonder if Vale is taking pain meds, and if he is, maybe he should continue. I sorta wish MV wasn't on pole, because now he could be right back leading the championship. And that would just be too confusing.

Great Rossi-legend story. And a nice clean second from Lorenzo. I hope JLo gets in front of MV at the start to make everything even more interesting, tomorrow.


EDIT:
On another note:
MM was a half second faster getting pole last year. And his all time record is a full second faster than MV's time today (different tires, of course). Dunno what this means except there may be more juice in the MM Repsol orange.

Tracks are like rivers. You can't step in the same one twice. Also... tires are different. Not to mention updated everything, on the bikes. Last year's data is only a baseline.

It's a great feat buddy. I bet about 15 riders would exchange breaking a leg to ride that factory M1, maybe they should call Carmelo to their motorhome.

KTM need to shuffle their riders effective immediately. It's one thing getting beat by the test rider at the hone circuit, but at Aragon unmasked them. As much as I like Bradley (I hope I can say this) the factory needs to Sam Lowes him. Pol too.

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
