Whether forecast is about the same for race, dry for practice, too. Ducati may do a little better than last week. I don't think Yamaha manages to repeat the disaster they had, so they will be in podium contention. I see no reason why Suzuki should slow down. Indeed, the monkey wrench is out there and comes without warning, may strike anyone. KTM will be there, complicating the life for everyone, themselves included.

Mir is out of top 10 for now? He is really careful, methinks. He knows merely finishing last two races with a few points scored will guarantee the title.

Fabs 16th in both sessions. He is truly lost. Wonder what the problem is.

Looking like Morbidelli and his crew could pull another one out of the bag!

Petronas turning down the power to hopefully get the bike to last till the end of the season?

Note: Morbidelli doing good - on last year's bike.

Hmm. Another replay. Franco on pole, Fabs in 16th.

Franco is on last year’s bike? That escaped me.

Mav seems to be doing better than Fabs also.

I think Fabio is getting psyched out.

From where I'm sitting, it's difficult to say what's happening with Fabio. Dialing the bike's setup to the tyres and conditions seems to be turning out to be a dark art more than anything. How do we explain the Suzuki performance in qualifying. They dominated last weekend. The variation in fortunes also seems to vary between riders within the same team.

He's on the 2019 bike for next year as well.

Could turn out to be a blessing...

Neil Splading is convinced that Franco has the new Olin's rear shock on his bike as well, whereas the factory team would not have been allowed to take the risk of using a new suspension component.

It would appear that this shock part of the reason that the Honda's have fared better in this last part of the season.
