Yes, a tighter track will help Carlos from being out-gunned down the straights. This track will favor more torquey bikes (1198cc) and bikes that corner strong. I expect we will see the Suzukis show that they are well planted and improve Saturday.

I am still shocked that the factory Ducati's can't match the pace of some of the privateer Ducatis. Then again, a slightly more mellow power might aid a bike on this track. Of course you would imagine that factory Ducati has a softer power curve available.

I really wish that they would publish the times based on certain portions of the track. We might get a better idea of which bikes are cornering fastest.
