This track is clearly a "pick the bike up & shoot out of the corner" style track. Being primarily designed for F1 doesn't lend itself to ideal GP bike racing, or Jorge's high corner speed style. Still, it's a beautiful venue which could only be improved by getting rid of some of the paint outside the edges of the track. It's got to be distracting for the riders.

today's free practice was merely a dry run, and if anything I see Lorenzo vastly improving tomorrow which can potentially translate into him being on pole. Overall if I were in Lorenzo's shoes I would think more of capitalizing on marquez's inexperience in the premier class.

he is a coward no stopping this race for his sake. even bautista should up his game beat this guy, push him further down and seek redemption for his unfair back of the grid penalty suffered last year.

It's nice to be patriotic and I'm American, but they went a little overboard with the 'ol red,white & blue paint scheme. Have any riders been interviewed and stated any confusion as to where the racing surface was? Pol Esp seemed really pi$$ed about something in FP2! But back to the point of the article topic, I think qualifying will be another interesting time where Jorge's going to prove himself once again. If Marc starts the race out in front, I think the pressure will see him crack somehow. It's a long race.

VR was wright., when they tested rossi sad that he has trouble when entering the corners., and definitely the yamaha will be clobbered this weekend by hondas but still the for factory riders will be fighting for second because if nothing strange happens MM will get his first win

at this level the current difference in times is HUGE ! the only glimmer of hope is if the hondas can go so much faster they are using the tyre a lot harder,which migt provide an opportunity over full race distance for a yamaha to sneak a podium.
