Thanks for these awesome and insightful threads 954stealth! I'm hoping Rossi can bounce back from the bad tire choice last race and at lease battle MM for a few laps before he walks away with it again. Pedrosa's appears to be healthy now too and let's hope he stays aggressive to keep things entertaining at the front.

I can't believe Lorenzo is struggling so bad and for so long, who would've ever thought the once unflappable Lorenzo can mentally defeated by the 21 year old phenom. It looks like he's already given up and don't seem like he even wants to be out there, it's sad.

Glad you're enjoying them!

Lorenzo doesn't do well when he's not winning. He really let's it all get in his head. Wet tracks, his team mate and this young kid he can't beat seem to all be defeating him even before the races begin

Marquez fell in free practice! Apparently he is having some neck pains. Will this be a factor in this weekend's race??



Meanwhile Aleix Espargaro sets fastest lap time
Lorenzo, suprisingly (maybe just to me**) set the second fastest time.

Free Practice 1:
1. Aleix Espargaro
2. Jorge Lorenzo
3. Valentino Rossi
4. Pol Espargaro
5. Alvaro Bautista
6. Marc Marquez
7. Stefan Bradl
8. Dani Pedrosa
9. Andrea Iannone
10. Yonny Hernandez
11. Andrea Dovizioso
12. Bradley Smith
13. Cal Crutchlow
14. Nicky Hayden
15. Scott Redding
16. Hector Barbera
17. Karel Abraham
18. Colin Edwards
19. Hiroshi Aoyama
20. Michael Laverty
21. Mike Di Meglio
22. Broc Parkes
23. Danilo Petrucci

** Surprising because he crashed at this track last year. Thought it might've gotten in his head like everything else lately

Mr. 9x9 strikes again.





The rest of the field might as well do this

Hah! Thanks I try to be accurate and take all factors in to account. We'll see how the predictions are for the next race (although we have a bit of time for that)

You know, I do do as well. I do t mind his constant P1 because the battle to get there is continually exciting and not a snoozer by any means. Lets see how far he can take it! Does anyone reading this think he'll have a perfect points season?

I also hope he does it, he's shown us this season he can win in any race condition. It's amazing seeing him outride and out smart all the other riders race after race, he's been a joy to watch.

Having said that though, there are too many uncontrollable variables and the stars would have to align for anyone to have a perfect season. It's racing and it's impossible to avoid "racing incidents", other rider's mistakes or even mechanical failures. So far he's been very lucky not to hurt himself from the crashes he's had.
