Both the factory Yamahas will be near the pace tomorrow, no surprise if they're both on the podium. Stoner is still the favourite but Jorge nows how to run a smart race and Ben has found his feet in the factory team. Throw (though hopefully not literally) Simoncelli into the mix and we're in for an interesting race.
Though I can't wipe Pedrosa out as a dark horse for a podium either, he's improved every session and won here last year.

Ben, for sure, will be on the podium.. as for Simonccelli.. he'll be on the ground after a vicious high side hopefully this time he wont take anyone else down with him. Heck if anything, take Vale down with him... he aint doing nothing at Ducatio anyway.. :-P

Ben is now raking in the points for Yamaha in place of Rossi. Rossi is not missed by Yamaha anymore.

If neither Spies nor Lorenzo win the world title, yes they will... Barring major mechanical or electircal failure, or hospitalisation, Rossi was always poised to win it all, making the rostrum, merely a side affect...

Looking at the short lap analysis from QP, it's tough to see Ben on the podium (at least on paper). Lorenzo, Dovi, Simo and Stoner look to be the top 4, with Honda's having a bit of an edge, gaining an extra tenth of a second on that long front straight.

If Simoncelli doesn't crash and take out another rider in the first couple of turns, it could be his to win, even though I can't stand the little -----. He's a dangerous rider, that makes rookie mistakes and other people pay the price for his ignorance.
