I can see lorenzo getting the holeshot but once pedrosa and marquez get passed it will be game over for lorenzo, he will just settle for third, though will have to keep the pace 'coz rossi will just keep battling away and get up to 4th maybe even catch lorenzo now wouldn't that be great.

dear lorenzo,
after initially hating and loathing you (2009-10), wishing ill for you(2011-12), i have finally accepted that you ARE a truely brilliant rider, maybe not exciting as Rossi but very clinial nonetheless who gets the job done for the larger picture.( the way you refused to take chances by settling for a string of seconds while dani went beserk last year)
you will not win, thats for sure, but don't be surprised if you get a good second place, and if luck is on you then the leader could make a mistake and you could end up winning. But i still see Rossi behind you, fighting away through the race like he showed in Quatar.

your well wisher

Jorge is a thorn in the side for the Honda faithful. I'm both a Honda and Yamaha fan. Jorge is so consistently fast that even on tracks where the Honda's are a bit (BIT) faster, the riders have to be near perfect lap after lap or else Jorge will be there at the end and can win. What's more, when he doesn't win he finishes second so that makes him a formidable title contender and that's why he's a two time champ.

That "something strange" might be tyre problems for the Hondas in race distance, or the Repsol boys fighting a hot war for the win that ends up with both in the gravel, or that Yamaha has something up his sleeve...

We'll see today
