pcxmax - The moment I saw the headline I thought - 'It was wet'.

What a few folk were saying yesterday too. ONLY if its wet now the other marques have raised their game so much will the Ducatis be in with a shout at fast tracks like Monza.

mike, smoke from the rear wet tyre burning up. A lot of the bikes were melting there rear wets down the start/finish straight and a rearward facing onboard shot (Melandri I think) showed this graphically.

After the BMs went so well in the dry, then qualified so modestly in the damp, its as well they have mostly experienced riders on them if its dry tomorrow because if its is they should be able to carve their way through.

Just hope Fabrizio keeps a cool head.
