Ive been watching since 2003, He used to qualify well (always front row) mostly. Back then his race pace was way beyond anyone else because thats what he and his crew concentrated on. He could throw in a 'quali' tyre in the last 10 mins and get pole, 2nd or 3rd. Now in 2013, he qualifys badly, not because he is slow, I just think the level of riders around him has gone up, they are faster and more competitive. Now on race day he is probably a close second to JLo with race pace. Thats why he always finishes higher than he qualifies, because of race pace that is better than all except JLo.
