Bridgestone watching the weather

"Every evening we have had heavy rain at the circuit..."
Bridgestone's Hirohide Hamashima believes there is 'every chance' of Sunday's Malaysian MotoGP - which will start with an all-Repsol Honda front row - being a wet race.

"Yesterday a few riders covered more than race distance on a softer rear and wear rate and consistency were acceptable, but tyre choice could all be changed by the weather of course," he said.

"Every evening we have had heavy rain at the circuit and, with the race starting at 1600hrs, there is every chance of what could be only the third wet race of the season.”

Why are they they racing 2 hours later then usual, when they know it rains at Sepang in the late afternoon? Is Dorna trying to give Rossi a chance to win a race this year .
