Stoner FTW. New swingarm and engine braking packages which all the HRC boys have thought positive. This track is good for the Honda's (stop start corners) and bad for the Yamaha's. Ducati and the rest will clean up the scraps.

1. Stoner
2. Simonchelli (if he doesn't you know what)
3. Lorenzo (cuz he is still the reigning champ)
4. Dovizioso

@ Stoner #1

I agree with your riders positions except for simo. I think he has reserved 4th spot as his best for this year. I also think Dani will be up there until the last 6 laps.

Well if it doesn't go well the whinging will start as usual so lets hope for a good weekend.

On a serious note, actually hope we get a decent race, F1 has been more entertaining this year and as a biker I thought I'd never say that. Sad but true.

Jeez don't you guys get tired of harping on about "moaner" and "whiner" ... small things amuse small minds ... It's ridiculous !

Good luck Stoner, hope the Honda works well this week-end !

@he does talk rubbish

Jorge's current crew chief was Casey's at LCR Honda and he reckons Casey has got amazing sensitivity with his feeling on the bike, more than Jorge. He can go out and very quickly understand whether a change, or part or tyre, is doing what it's supposed to and then nail a lap at that pace and come straight in for the next change. He doesn't need to spend 6 laps trying to understand the change, he's an engineer's dream. That means Honda can get through a lot more testing in the same period and means testing is either a lot cheaper or they can have a faster pace of development.
