Well done Pedrosa. Slowest top speed but still third on the grid.

A. Espagaro 8th, Lowes 21st. And people wonder about the rumours of Aprilia sacking Lowes? Seriously?

Seems like another Biaggi Camier situation to me.

Wait till the day that Q1 is in the dry and Q2 is in the wet. Could be a fiasco in the race.

Yearby23.....happy ?

Hmmm.......Jorge, in wet conditions, ahead of both Dovi and Rossi !

Marquez is ruthlessly chasing another title. Anyone in his way, be damned!

Folger impressive again...wow, check out 9th, 10th and 11th...

Petrucci...bumped into Q1, tops it and then pulls out 2nd on the grid.

He's mining the mother lode!

Marc really a wonder here in Germany.

Championship leading top 3 riders starting from 10th, 11th & 9th... can a season get anymore crazier....

First 3 comments here are like same news getting headlined in 3 different news papers in their own version. Interesting.
