I think the order on the grid might be jumbled up a bit as some riders seem to be able to go out and get straight on the pace in the 15minutes, while others aren't able to push as hard from the off.

The fisherman would have been mustard for pole with his ability to jump on it and let rip on his first flying lap!

So, Form suggests that Cal might well get a good start slot as he is good at getting straight into the groove, while Vale might slip a couple of spots below his practice positions.

The Honda's are showing strong - not just the HRC's as expected too.

JL is doing a mega job - but I reckon it'd need the ride of his life to keep either of the Repsol's behind him at the flag barring incident.

If all the factory boys finish then I reckon the podium is Repsol-Repsol-Factory Yamaha. I'm just not certain whether Dani can take the win from Marc - he certainly NEEDS to. JL third.

Lorenzo does like to make 'statements' by finishing first in free practices and specially pole positions. Pedrosa is the opposite, can't be bothered as long as he's on the front row. Cal's riding at home so I expect he'll be fighting for pole. Front row tomorrow I'd say Lorenzo, Marquez and Cal, in what order I don't know. It should be a good qualifying session.

Well guys JLs looking quick then I thought the tuna would have been top!

See what happens in qualifying hope Rossi isn't 3rd row like usual.

There is a wide spread complaint that experienced Rossi is now poor in adapting himself to Lorenzo's bike while Lorenzo when rookie adapted to Rossi's bike...
The answer is he was new to big bike riding and had learn it from the scratch. So he had no proven riding style of his own at that time so he had no other option, adapting to Rossi's bike is his basic foundation for motogp.
But now returning Rossi has his own successfully proven riding style which helped him win 4 titles with yamaha, so its against his natural instincts to try and change his proven way of riding and with age it gets even tougher.
can you say no to that amongst the top4 guys Rossi faces the most odds against him.
Despite all these he is not miles away from Lorenzo his teammate in CS points.
