Still funny to see that Vale is a bit complaining that he hasn't enough power and Melandri that he has to much power... But I am sure they both will handle it. Again a strong performance by Randy, altough I believe we haven't seen the best out of Casey and Vale yet!!

yeah great to see toseland up there!, lets hope he breaks into the top 10 tomorrow. yamaha's seem to be going well, edwards faster than rossi with the old spec engine but with new chassis lets hope yamaha have built a winner this year, yeah i want to see rossi win it again, but i also want to see lorenzo, edwards and toseland fighting up there as well. bet rossi doesnt mind looking at the time sheets and being top bridgestone, can only give him more confidence.
