@ Danny Powell

truthis with more time the top 3 all would have lowered that mark even further, they were syill learning the new surface with only the one dry session this weekend.

And the setup most guys were using will be their dry weather setup for the race - soft rear hard front. So Lorenzo's 132s arent that impressive. The race will be run in the 131s if its dry, and Stoner was consistently lating down the most 131s of anybody - even Pedrosa.

That said the likelihood is that the race tyre will actually be the rain tyre!

@Pete
"If Dani can continue his form ...Dani at some point this season has found something extra,..."
They designed a new frame and engine to reduce the chatter from the Bridgestones. Bridgestone will introduce new tyres next year, again, after testing, and Honda will be back to the drawing board. OTOH, it could just work against Yamaha next year. It's a lottery.

"On a different subject, I think that Rossi won't be the force..." It doesn't matter what he does from here. Myth busted. His only hope of salvaging his legend is to totally dominate. Unfortunately for him, all the other riders now know just how fragile his "GOAT" legend is.

The number of wins for the top 3 is so close that it is a shame. Whoever wins tomorrow should get to be this years Champion.


I feel for Stoner, this is the second time that he has scored 6 wins in a season and not got the Title.
