It will be dry tomorrow, but grip levels will also be low due to the track getting 'washed'. Morning warm-up/practice will be make or break time. It's a unique challenge that puts the teams outside of their comfort zones, and therefore will make for an interesting day of racing.

I predict another battle for 4th position tomorrow for Rossi. I really have to wonder if Rossi will retire after 2014 though. Rossi did say that when he stops fighting for 1st place he would retire and lately all Rossi battles for is for 4th. I'm not even sure Rossi would move to WSBK because what happens if Rossi fails to win there? That could really tarnish his status :?

imagine if Rossi called his retirement at the end of 2014, every race for the season would be sold out immediately, no one would care if he won they would just want to see him one last time and he would make $hit loads more money then he needs.

Back on topic, 4th is his new 1st and thats what we will get with Nicky coming 5th

So used to Val being away from the sharp end now its hard to see him fighting with anyone other than the satellite riders.
Lets see what happens tomorrow.If he proves me wrong,all well and good,but i just cant see it.

What is wrong with you people?

He is riding a bike that is below the Honda performance.
He is riding a bike that lacks the tools to assist him in doing what he does best - race and battle, not qualifying laps.
He has won a race, had multiple podiums and frankly if he had had two further 4ths instead of the Bautista demolition then he would still be in with a shout!
He is without doubt more than capable of winning races just as easily as those three around him given the tools
He has won every close battle this year - every one of them. Name one other rider on the grid apart from the three in front of him that has won a race, let alone had multiple podiums, fought for every point, not thrown it down the road, enjoyed every second? And frankly the occasional glance and overtakes from the leading three are hardly compatible with a decent race long battle so he wins there too!
