I just watched FP2 on live timing on the site and I am at a loss to explain Marco this year. He did 11 laps to most peoples 17-25laps and ended up 19th out of 19 and TWELVE seconds off the pace and 5 seconds behind Elias on 18th place. I cant help thinking that the GP8 has scared the crap out of him and he doesnt want to ride it. Ive got a lot of respect for Marco but something has gone horribly wrong this year, any theories among you learned people?

I think were gonna have to wait till tomrrow for
anything realistic in times and were we can expect
riders to be running in the race.

Roll on some dry weather...if it was gonna be wet for
the whole weekend, i''d have to stick my house on vermulen
winning it..

Dry...its gotta be rossi, he''s like a man possessed at mugello
and lets face it, he''s very difficult to beat there..

FP2 times separate give a more realistic view as it shows the riders relative to eachother in the same weather conditions.

1 Vermeulen
2 Hayden
3 Stoner
4 Rossi
5 Toseland
6 Lorenzo
7 Dovizioso
8 de Puniet
9 Edwards
10 Pedrosa

I think most of them just held out and tried to get in some wet practice without risking too much,
tomorrow's qualifying may see different weather again.

And as much as people hate the bashing...stoner is a complete p**k

the way he went on one at guintoli for 'getting in his way'

The track was dangerous enough on the edges...with puddles and the
white lines obviously...but no stoner still thinks people should be
well out of his way, if on the track at all.

I'm sorry but this is getting too much, is there anyone left
in the field he hasnt shook his head at or kicked out at?

I thought he was ok, but his temper and manner on the track is
awful, someone needs to give the lad a good slap n make him realise
that there are 18 other riders on that track.

I could understand if he had been run of the track by someone
but he had plenty of room to go through, god forbid someone
be within 2 feet of him on the track.

He really doesnt help himself with his actions
and the way he's going he is gonna get that slap

I suppoose all the stoner fans didnt see this though
or have some excuse for his actions
