Rain won’t have much effect on the dynamic for front runners. Dovi for my money is the best rain rider, but not by much.

The battle between him and Marquez in the rain was nothing short of astounding. Dovi made passes that shouldn’t have been possible. I guarantee you will never see Lorenzo take all-or-nothing risks like that in the rain - ever.

Number 43 can shower the rest with his rooster tail of water if the stars align for him on the day.

depends, remember Marquez at Misano last year? His duel with Petrucci after they dropped Dov was pretty epic. Made pass for the lead on the last lap then beat him by over a second running fastest lap of the race.If it's wet, Marc will decide the risk vs reward as the race unfolds and where certain riders are placed. Right now he will see Lorenzo then Dovi as his greatest threat even though Rossi is second in points.None of them have a thing to lose throwing a Hail Mary in the wet , so I would expect to see Dovi,Lorenzo and Rossi holding nothing back. .

Doubt we’ll see his shrimp on the barbie again any time soon. That dog has seen his day.

Rain forecast Sunday, wouldn't rule out Petrucci getting a first win. Certainly think he'll be up with the 3 usual suspects if that is the case. If the weather is changeable during the race I can't see passed Marquez. Already got his fall out the way this morning.

A lot of bad luck would have to befall Dovi, Lorenzo and Marquez for that to happen.
