If it's dry Spies might have a good chance of a win here. Especially if his main challenger is Sic, who doesn't seem quite as adept at managing his tyres (and sometimes his concentration).

If it's wet I'm not sure he'll have the same confidence. But so far he's looking the strongest he's been this year.

If it turns out to be Ben or Simmo for the win then it could well be down to the tyres and who manages them the best. You would have to favour Ben, but if it's wet then even Karel could win. Any of these 3 winning would be great, especially after the slagging they've recieved on here.
Casey now satisfied not to be fastest?
What on earth is going on with Rossi?

I'll bet neigher Simo nor Spies will be 1st in 1st corner.

Unless miracle happens and VR finds something in warm up the podium will be decided btw Simo, BS, Stoner and JLo, with potentially Dovi if someone falls off.

KC had a big highside and is on spare bike. He will do better in race don't write him off.

Good job Benny!

I'm hoping for a good battle between Ben and Simo. Ben needs to bring him a solid finish - hopefully on the podium. Simo at the very least needs to bag his first podium and get that monkey off his back which I think would take some pressure off of him. My fingers are crossed for the rain to stay away - I don't have much faith in either of them in the wet!
