Nobody is talking about the Bridgestone announcement, which I feel will play a huge part.

Bridgestone announced this evening (in Oz) that all riders will be forced to use the new hard compound tire in the race (without option) after the new track surface caused severe and more than expected tire degradation on Friday.

I feel that is going to heavily affect lap times, and even more so Jorge Lorenzo. Actually, it's hard to say which riders will be affected, but I'm guessing that Jorge is going to suffer most.
