So now Honda is saying it's the bike, and also partly the rider?

If you take the average quali of the 2 factory riders for each team, then Honda, on average, still qualified behind Yamaha and Ducati with that pole.

Honda, your bike still sucks.

DP is being realistic : his pace at FP2 was behind his rivals, its all down to a Soft tyre (that nobody is about to use tomorrow) that he did pole.
Twin : totally agree, Most its riders have been asking for years to Honda for better stability when braking&inside curve unheeded and unanswered till now.. .
DP, parpicularly, has been asking for a stiffer frame that doesnt wobble even straigthline(qatar)

Pedrosas pace in fp2 was fine. He had a similar pace to rossi and was right at the sharp end until the banzai laps came in on soft tyres.

Lorenzo and Stoner look very strong, plus Rossi is Rossi but i wouldnt write pedrosa off :p

After qualfying it looks like one two for Spain. Didn't expect Dani to be that strong in qualifying. Those laps he did on the soft looked very courageous. The bike was shaking all the time. He was really pushing. The pole could help him a lot. Lorenzo is not exactly the fastest starter so Dani could get a decent lead in the first few laps. And we all know what he can do, when he is on front alone...

My guess for tomorrow:

1. Pedrosa
2. Lorenzo
3. Stoner
4. Rossi
5. Hayden
6. Spies
