Jorge is coming make no mistake.He will be right there on race day and it will be interesting to see if Spies can hang there and not drop back out of touch.I expect he will still beat Rossi though.

Once Elbowz makes progress he never takes a step back of course he will be in contention he is the best on worn tyres and he will reel them Hondas in the race IMO.

Oh, I believe Spies will beat Rossi for a fact. I don't think he'll beat Lorenzo this season, though, but maybe next year. He's still too new to MotoGP and the Yamaha, but that won't stop him claiming podiums and maybe a couple of wins this season. The top 3 come season's end might be a tad too hard for Ben yet, but if Pedrosa or Stoner run into trouble that's not out of the question.

It will be interesting to see some duels between Lorenzo and Spies since both seem to have very similar qualities: better second halves of race, good on worn out tyres, good fighters, very consistent lap after lap, both good breaking. I think Lorenzo has the edge on most of these things, and also cornering speed, but we'll see.

The battle between Lorenzo and Spies is the most interesting to me. They are similar in their consistency and speed so I expect it to be a good battle. Lorenzo is the favorite until proven otherwise but Spies will give him a good battle for sure.

While he is technically slower, I find it interesting that they put Lorenzo after Spies in this article. Lorenzo is the reigning champion, though, and so presumably foremost among the grid -- I think this says a lot about his image.
