A boring track with no elevation changes. No thanks.

Anyway, I suspect times to drop rapidly this afternoon as the track dries and the racing line clears a little. In defense of Indy though, they did have wild thunderstorms last night so a little debris is to be expected. Kinda like sand at Qatar, except this will be gone by tomorrow.

Dani needs to start sticking it to Jorge, this "appears" to be a good weekend for that.

Go Silva!!!!

You know what worries me?
Low grip track surface and Rossi still off the pace.

It shouldn't be having the chatter issues if the track is green, it should almost be like a wet race.
I think he has well and truly given up.

Hayden's data will be "on sale" after Qualification on Saturday.

So, when "you" use Hayden's data, don't be too fast when leaning or Ducati will lose the front-end like what happened on the last race at Corkscrew braking point. Hehehehe....

Rocket is correct. In order to prove it to yourself (should you doubt) just go and watch the guy in real life live at the trackside... In fact it is normally possible to hear his bike before he arrives cos no-one else is riding like that.

By the way i like all the riders... It's just this guy is the fastest...

Rhino, didn't Stoner WIN races, and even a Championship on the Ducati before he left them (after they offered Lorenzo more $$$ than Stoner was making)?

And isn't Rossi making 4x as much as Stoner ever was at Ducati and gives the *two* podiums in wet races before ditching them to go back to Yamaha.

Nod your head boy, nod your head yes.
