Race day chaps. My money is on Marquez if he stays up right.

Lowes will fall off as well

The bikes the biggest part for me and those Hondaís are exceptional, no doubt, If Rossi and MM were on the same bike then that would be the test. Agree though, MM is a great rider, letís see how he fairs against Lorenzo, I expect his talent to shine

As for the bikes, look what Batista has just done in WSB, that V4 Ducati is untouchable on the straights, canít compete, 15 second gap! and Rea riding the tyres off it

Same when Foggy was riding them, different league at the time, his Moto GP career says it all

Disagree, it's the person on the bike that makes the real difference. Stoner proved this winning the title on a machine nobody including Rossi could ride. Let's also not forget Rossi had a machine developed for him that was superior to anything else including the one has team mate rode. Love or loathe MM he is the most talented rider I've seen since I started watching in the early seventies and let's not look back with Rose tints on as Rossi has taken out his share of riders over the years and used his mind games and huge fan base to intimidate rivals.

I enjoy watching the Qatar race, it looks good under the lights but I've read in the past a lot of the riders don't like it..the shadows make it hard also likes been said the sand blowing over the track.bit of a **** track to actually go and watch the race live, only one stand..crafty mm93 getting a tow in q2 to nick 3rd. Rossi has his work cut out tomorrow but never rite him off come race day.

No, his next work swing starts tomorrow so he only got to watch today's free practices. He knows a few people who have tickets for the actual races and they are questioning whether or not to go due to the weather
Going to be interesting whatever the weather chucks up, it's Moto GP after all..........

Hi Chris

Had a text from a friend who works in Doha and the wind is blowing a lot of sand onto the track, not going to get better tomorrow for the race by all accounts. Looks like it's going to be survival of the fittest. I don't think qualifying will have much bearing on any of the race class results, gonna be a tyre weekend I think

High side, not good at all John

Mainly the rear wheel slipping and then gripping

Mind you though, the introduction of the air bag suits is a big step forward imho. Think its Lorenzo on the Alpinestars site, 150mph high side, air bag goes off and he walks away

So much power those bikes, unreal, donít seem to come off them as much as the 500cc two stokes though, they were mental. I would love a go on one, steady away though

Hi All

Loving all this, just wish they could eradicate hi sides somehow, every time I see one my heart is in my mouth so as to speak. I know Lorenzo went over on a slow corner, but........ horrible

A whole other level now, forget knee sliders, elbow sliders

A great race of many here, in the rain though, mental

in the wet!

I saw Stoner at a Caldwell BSB event and he lead the 125 race by half a lap! I thought, yep, heís gonna be something special

seeing that when Rossi got put back to the back of the grid for that and most of the grid infront let him through. just shows that it wasn't a kick..
