I dunno, Yamaha seem to be on the losing end when it comes to the rear tire, Jorge has either had a bad strategy like Sepang or Sachsenring last year, and many other examples, or his tires just have not lasted (effectively) as long as the Honda's. I happen to think this is partially due to that Lorenzo rides the edge of his tire better and can therefor put more energy in to that part of the compound.

Given how Lorenzo+Yamaha have had better results in colder/less grippy conditions, I have to think Honda will have the tire longevity to put at least one bike on the podium, especially if the temperatures are warmer.

Just goes to show how well sorted that Honda is this year. Credit where credit's due to Pedro though, cracking lap from him.

Pretty good from Marquez, he must be having nightmares from that crash yesterday. Decent from Bradl as well.

Poor show from Rossi though. If results don't improve I expect he may call it a day at the end of the season.

Yamaha now have a huge dilemma - is it worth keeping Rossi for 2014 (if he does want to stay on) for his market value? And if he doesn't, do they sign Crutchlow or Pol? Expect Ezpeleta to stick his nose in....

lorenzo needs maximum points tomorrow,i think his biggest danger is rossi whos ego has taken a massive hammering the last few years.i can see rossi barge his way through in the opening laps his sole aim to beat his team mate with no regard for the title fight,all a result of the dumb decision to give rossi a yamaha ride.

J.L better be ready to be surprised all year with the speed of the Honda's . Jorge your getting all the fast parts over Rossi,but theres nothing you can do about the speed of both Honda's. Your not going to have it easy ever again Jorge, and for me that makes what Yamaha is doing to Vale an easier pill to swallow.

There's no dilemma at Yamaha. Rossi will have to decide if he's going to be able to afford to keep buying the M1 ride or if he's going to skip taxes again or get some kind of financial support from his loyal fans that want to see him keep trying until he finishes last even though they already support him by the truckload with all the yellow paraphernalia they buy.
