MM was fast in not so clean Austin circuit. Judging by that he should be in contention for Qatar. VR fan but like to see dani as champ, wont mind if MM is the champ. Shud be stunning season if MM can minimize mistakes

Based on the fact that it will be dry (they won't race in the wet at night as we saw a few years ago) i would say it will be Pedrosa or Lorenzo 1st with the other taking 2nd as long as there are no crashes between the top boys. Then 3rd will be between Rossi and Marquez.
If everything goes well then Cal will be 5th, i still don't believe he is as good as Rossi on that Yam and Marquez...well based on testing he is looking good.
Overall, if we have another crappy summer weatherwise then don't count Rossi out for the title. If we have a good summer it will be between Pedrosa and Lorenzo. Honda has the better bike but i believe that out of those two the better rider currently is Lorenzo.
Hopefully we just have an amazing season full of twists and turns and a bit of good natured banter....well i can hope for the latter :)

jlo may win this race... he's the only one do a full simulation race in the last 3 test. so he has some ideas how to preserve his tire in race distance.

other are just trying fast lap with new tire i guess.

out of podium for MM if the race is clean. no pushing other riders out of track.

Unfortunately Marquez has publicly stated he's the number 2 on the team and that this is his learning year and Pedrosa is the main man. Honda seems to have told him to not fight DP for a possible win so unless DP falls or has a mechanical failure I doubt we'll see Marquez fighting for the win specially if Pedrosa shows last year's signs of brilliance from the get go.

@ El Guevo

I think that is pure speculation on your part. I highly doubt Honda said anything of the sort. They want either of their men in the #1 spot. If it was all about team orders, Stoner wouldn't have come in and spanked everybody his first year on the Honda. I think people put too much stake in the "team orders" claim.

@EL Guevo:

If you think Marquez will not challenge Pedrosa when the opportunity presents itself, then you are seriously mistaken. What he is doing is called keeping expectations in check and playing things down. He did the same thing last year when he missed most of pre-season testing in Moto2 due to his eye injury. He said that he would play things came cool and calm for the season opener. Come race day, he pulled that infamous pass on Luthi to win in Qatar. The guy only cares about winning, don't let his words and his smiling couldn't hurt a fly demeanour fool you. Those that pay attention will notice that what Marquez says, and what he does on track are 2 completely different things.....

@ Crash...You use a picture of Rossi, Dani, and Casey to illustrate your GP riders section.
Shame on you for not including the current Champion, who is also the most successful rider of the current era.
tut..tut.
