I think you've coined a new expression: Lowe-job

I think MM worries more about working out race pace during the FP sessions than he does about going into time attack mode the way everyone else does at the end of these sessions. Almost like he is sandbagging for qualifying. Either way his pace on the medium-hard looks very good. He'll have his work cut out for him either way with Dovi looking stronger again.

He's definitely well past the stage of needing to top every session or test. He and the team seem to make a plan of what they need to work on and he gets out there and puts in laps.

Anyone know what was going on with Crutchlows hand gestures?

Depending on the track, Michelin's constructions can be very close to each other.
I remember this being mentioned a few times before by the commentators and the differences between soft and hard are more down to the "Feel" than grip and endurance for certain rounds.

I know this is practice, but did I just see someone practicing to cut the track again to avoid Zarco?

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