Good luck Pedro, and lets hope the bug brained torpedo joe takes on another wall instead of other drivers.

Should be a great show with Pedro vs. JL, and maybe VR magages to work his way up too which could be entertaining as well...

By the way, Dani shouldn't gamble so hard as fall and injure himself to get pole as long as he is in the first row.
You know he will get ahead on the start on race day, 9 out of 10 times.

This format is a media show and damages the chances of a good race.
Compare the performances of who put in the most laps under 1min 49secs and you'll see why I say that.
The biggest loser is Jorge. I would like to see Dani get the Title this year but there is no way he deserved pole when you look at his times against Jorge's.
My man Dovi had a great lap but his general pace is not so hot. Not as good as Cal's anyway.
And so it goes on. Make your own comparisons.

Pedrosa + clear track = pole under lap record.

Lorenzo + clear track = almost pole under lap record.

Rossi + clear track = 7th and accuses others finishing in front of him of towing.

Of course these front runners weren't towing him.

last time I looked Jorge was trying to catch a tow from Dani on the last lap, considering Dani had traction issues since fp1, he fully deserves pole after setting the new fastest lap.

Pedrosa showing what a tough little rooster he is. Great effort.

Marquez is going to have to try to eek out a decent result in the race, carrying his injuries all the way. Rossi might keep him pretty busy this race.

I've got to take my hat off to Dovi. I'm not a realy Dovi fan but his efforts on the Ducati have been a real lift to the spirits. By race end, he's really not doing much better than Rossi was doing on the Ducati but the heart and gusto Dovi is riding with in qualifying and racing puts Rossi's efforts on the Ducati in 2011 and 2012 to shame. Great job Dovi.
