Gent's we are slacking off, it's the weekend and nothing started for Sepang!!!

OK here goes:

Rins for the win followed by Marc with Dovi in 3rd.

Should be an interesting weekend.

The Yamaha's are fast, both in one lap and race pace (with VR looking to have the best race pace after day 1).
I've not caught any of the debrief's yet but interviews with the crew suggested that there have been no 'magic' fixes applied

Marc saved 4 front end slides today, all on the hard front tyre so he may well be forced to race the medium (which normally results in overheating for him)....

Dovi is fast (as is Miller), Jorge shouldn't have bothered and should just be resting up for Valencia (I would have liked to see TashBoy back on his bike again this week).
I doubt that he will race or even get through Saturday's sessions.

Rins is also looking pretty useful!

Roll on tomorrow

looks like Marquez has been penalized 6 spots after taking pole.

I can't believe Iannone complained, or is he doing it for his monkey?
Regardless of the ridiculous reason MM was in front and he wasn't cruising, I expect its another Dorna shit fest.

" Vinales: Team needs to give me a bike for the wet "

Anyway an interesting qualifications with some surprising results.
