It will be interesting to see how Lorenzo manages the tires this time out. I’ll bet he could see the advantage of not trying to streak away at the last race. Maybe he’ll get to right this time! I actually hope so. I really think these two years at Ducati have made him stronger.

I agree, I think he is definitely a better rider than he was a couple of years ago.

Learning how to ride something not custom tailored for him has made him better.

The usual suspects up front. Lorenzo put in a quick lap at the end there but I dont know if he will be able to beat Dovi's tyre management and pace come Sunday. I think Marc is the favourite for a win and he is about due for one.

Rossi..... WTF was going on there. He had 3 laps left in Q1 and decided to cruise around and wave at the crowd??

Not for naught he's the nine-times-not-the-world-champion.

Seriously, he's doing the same as he did at Ducati when not perfectly happy - cruising with his thumb up his ass. I liked his snappy new glove graphics tho. Totally styling'. Dainese oughta sell plenty of those.

Given Rossi's displeasure with the current state of the Yamaha's, its not only him thats struggling to give 100%. The ceremonial 'donning of the new gloves' at the beginning of the FP1 session is usually accompanied by Uccio (self ordained man of the yellow cloth) crouched in genuflexion, his chosen pose of worship... It's clear from his stance that even he doesn't give a fuck.

Rossi beat Syahrin, Lüthi, Redding, Simeon and Torres. Not bad. What are you complaining about?

Very obviously I'd have thought, he was crap the 1st 18 months.

Those who doubt the Red Mamba do so at their own peril...
