Marc really needs to use his head now.Keep sharp and on the pace, but he needs to be wary of pushing too hard also.
He doesnt need to win the race.I think we will probably see him tuck in behind Jorge and follow him home to the trophy.
Jorge is the one who needs to come out guns blazing,he has no choice.
Marc does have a choice.Lets see if he makes the right one.

I have to think that Lorenzo's strategy will be to get the lead and slow it down, in hopes that he can draw Rossi and Crutchlow into the fray . Dani, with nothing to lose wins the race, with Lorenzo 2nd and Marquez a few seconds back in a lonely 3rd.

re: "It's difficult to say (what strategy to use) at the moment we will try and do 100% like a normal race and tomorrow we'll try in the same way."

translation: we're a MULTI-MILLION EURO outfit flush with cash and staffed with the brightest engineers. we're not privateers sleeping in the back of a lorry.

this is the final round. we know EXACTLY what our strategy is, but if you think we're going to just come out and tell you...? you're crazy.

at this point, no matter what strategy jay and the team formulate...? it all amounts to having sh#t in one hand, and a wish in the other.

In the end the rider will ride his race. These guys race and sometimes going slower is worst because they do not keep heat in the tyres, the set up that they figured out while they were pushing in FP and Qual does not work well at a slower pace and in the end the bike becomes more nervous and risk crashing.

So the rider needs to "ride his race" and do what he has done all season to put himself on the podium. IMHO he will try to run away with it but if Lorenzo is up to the task he may well not risk the "rubbing is racing" mentality and settle for a close 2nd....

If Lorenzo slows down to to bring Vale and Cal into the mix, MM will get by and leave him... Hell Pedro will push into the mix and JL will risk a spanking by both Hondas.
