I agree with Rawdawg that his pace deteriorates over race distance on the hards which Lorenzo for instance doesn't. This is obviously a bad situation. Equally I wonder how much they can "tune" understeer out of a bike. In my experience (and I have raced bikes) understeer is often a design issue equally I think the understeer may be because Rossi is heavier than Hayden (and no I am not saying it is unfair, run whatcha brung) and hayden can do the rear steer technique better. However, I think come qualifying we will know the real answer. As for doing a race distance on hards being a waste of time, get serious you can only know how the bike behaves over race distance if you do race distance.
