Go Casey....Top Dog again..but troubling as Rossi is only .096 from you. Best suprise is the Suzuki boys and MELANDRI....he makes mince meat of the other Ducati boys.

Well it's Qualifying day & there has been speculation for a while as to how well Melandri will go. Well it's early days so far but his year is looking bright - something he definitely deserves.

2 Points his pace makes:

1/ Melandri has still 'got it'.
2/ He never lost 'it' & that Ducati is harder to ride than any other bike over the last decade or two.

i bet Stoners knees are shaking....
he was leading a second or so in every practice he did so far in Qatar,i guess he'll need to fight for it this time.
Marco Marco Marco tear them to bits.

So now the ducati is the worst bike on the grid, lmao...any excuse for stoner's groupies to big him up.

I wouldn't say stoner is such a big favourite for the win tomorrow, if he doesn't win his wrist will still be giving him a hard time, if he does win he'll be a hero for riding through the pain.

Rossi is very close it's gonna be very tight and hopefully very exciting.

I can see how stoner will get away though, launch the ducati off the start, rossi will have a bad one and have to make up positions, by the time he's 2nd, stoner will be 2-3 seconds away and possibly be able to hold on.

I'm just glad its close, i dont think anyone expected rossi to be this close to stoner.

Melandri is awesome,,he deserves it!
Rossi is near Stoner but i'm sure stoner in quali will push further..

@ to JC:

I think that number 2 is correct - Marco never lost it. Now he isn't on a Ducati, he seems to be doing alright. Take a look at Hayden's results. He seems to be finding it tough like Melandri did. I think that Ducati is probably a beast to ride, or at least takes a while to master (Kallio has done well to gel so quickly with it). Stoner must have great ability or the perfect riding style to do so well on a bike that most others have failed on, or been inconsistent on. I feel great for Melandri, after people wrote him off last year - he must feel so relieved that he is doing better now. I feel sorry for Nicky - I hope he can tame that bike a bit more and not have a season like Marco.
