As Simon Crafer texted Toby Moody in this afternoon's coverage of the practice: It's easier to ride in the dry and get used to the wet than ride in the wet and get your self up to speed for dry conditions. Hence why all the top riders sat on their ass in the pits.
Conditions like those are worthless whether your at the front or trying to get used to a complete change of machinery

"Highly doubt he crashes out. he's on a top-level bike and knows that his job is to bring it back in, looking the same as it went out."

I'll be surprised if he doesn't have a spill at some point though. How else can he learn the limits of the tyres? While the others are all going to know how hard they can push, JR won't know until he pushes too hard. And he will want to find those limits because he has a very brief opportunity to make a big impression.

It might not happen in the race - or even this weekend - but it's inevitable at some point that he'll crash, because it's part of the learning process, as it is for all riders coming to MotoGP.

Jonny Rea..good luck to him.. But really is that the best rider to take Caseys free ride. He's just a second rate english scratcher who spends a fair bit of energy chucking bikes at trackside scenery. Silly move Honda

rea,s two rides to get a result,tomorrows race should give him a chance to get a bit more used to it,but i would say he shouldnt worry about binning it,if he can go quick but fall its no big deal but if hes slow the chance of a ride in moto gp will go.if he finishes down the field in both races,no one will blame him,these bikes are difficult to set up,but honda will say thanks good ride and that will be the end of that.great chance over.
