Several fast riders at the front glad to see spies join in. Would have liked to see Simo get a chance to get pole and finish that fast lap when he crashed. Anyway I am sure him and Lorenzo will be side by side at some point which should be fun to watch for us, not so much for Jorge.

Rossi just couldn't get a good time with cooler conditions I guess, he almost got bumped off the 3rd row. Good on the tech 3 boys put in a good performance. Let' see what the weather brings for the race.

When dry tomorrow it's clear the front four will fight for the victory. I think Lorenzo's consistency will lead him to victory also considering his track record.

Rossi couldn't make another step forwards today and will have to scrap it out with Dovi, Spies and Edwards for fifth place.

Although I think there's a pretty big chance of rain on race day.

Things looking good for the race tomorrow! Lorenzo closely followed by three Hondas. There should be a very interesting battle for the podium as the three Honda riders seem very close. Looking at the lap times in the different stints, Lorenzo has the pace and the speed, while Pedrosa seems the strongest Honda, followed by Stoner. Spies has good speed but I have doubts regarding his pace. It would be great to see him battling for the podium, but I reckon he'll be a step behind the Hondas. Lorenzo is strongest in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th sectors of the track, but is in big need of horsepower for the 1st, so the start of the race will be critical for him, and if he manages to keep his position till the first turn he should push hard in this first lap in order to build a few tenths to defend his position in the main straight. If he keeps the lead the first few laps, the race will be his without much of a fight.

Stoner is the one to feel the heat ...from Simo of all people. Spies needs a little more time on the bike. And I have to laugh at all the experts who dumped on Cal and Karel: not worthy of the ride: a million more riders more deserving: blah, blah.
And why are semi-colons forbidden here?

My boy Stoner is going to sort that Honda out overnight and come out swinging in the warm up.Then blitz the pack for another dominating lesson on how to kick freckle.
