I like the new qualifying system but 15mins isn't enough for the final session, should be 20min IMO
No love in the repsol garage tonight..Dani brake checked Marquez and ruined his fast lap,you can almost see the tension between the two riders.
Dovi rode the wheels of the bike on his fast lap,He has noticeably changed his riding style from last year,He may be just what Ducati needs although the GP13 still looks unstable midcorner.I have a feeling it will be Dovi,Cal,Rossi and Marquez mixing it up for 3rd tomorrow.
Should be a good race!

Can i be the first die hard Rossi fan to speak objectively...

Hats off to Jorge, we all the know the boy is quick and he proved it.

Dovi put in a great quick lap, i really do hope he can make that bike work for more than one lap, race distance. Both Nicky and Vale occasionally (not every race granted) put in a fast lap in qualifying or practice. But it just never quite made the full race. I gues we'll see after about 10 laps if its a bike that suits him.

Cal, hes good. No doubt about it. I want to see him winning on a satalite bike. Thats an achievement. He deserves it too.

Dani, always quick. Never count him out.

Marquez, his practices and testing speaks for itself.

And Rossi, yeah im a little disappointed at qualifying. But i think to say he's lost it is a touch harsh. Who knows whats gone on out there. I'd lve him to win the first race. I dont think it will happen, but im allowed to hope for it surely without some hater telling me how wrong i am. Yeah its unlikely, but its a

I am not sure what is more embarrassing .... 1 second a lap slower than your team mate or half a second slower than the "unrideable" bike that you just dumped for a championship capable machine.

Ok, let's not get carried away, it could be a one-off but nevertheless this is a horrendous start to 2013 and a biiter pill for "The Doctor" to swallow.

Great session and I have to say that the bikes look utterly fantastic under floodlights. It was really good TV.

They (Ducati) should make him give back the money he stole from them, still he does make money, both for Yamaha & all the merchandise that all the fanboys buy, I bet a few of em wont be wearing their fluffy yellow 46 slippers at their moms place tonight.
