Didn't someone in the press conference say, Ducati has got a new motor this weekend?

Its pretty tight at the top of the pack! Great stuff.

From what I was gathering, new motor and new electronics. The motor is relocated in the chassis to combat the understeer issue.

I'd love to watch this race. I really am pulling for Marquez to take them all this season, it would be something spoken of for decades.

Of course I want to see Ducati succeed, Iannone has truly been impressive.

If MM does win he will equal **** Doohans record of 10 straight. :yo:
Is that the longest wins streak in GP history? Or is there someone that won more than 10 consecutive ones? Maybe Agostini?

Being at the end of straight and watching Marquez slide it into turn one is absolutely amazing. The kid is stunning. We visited the VR46 booth in the paddock area. 50% of the items on display were VR, 50% MM... The new face of motoGP

Don't know for sure. Was with my girlfriend in the Honda tent. Lucky girl got to meet Pedrobot and Marc. Her first GP and she meets both Repsol riders.

Another disappointment, Ducati island is now Ducati eyot. Incredibly tiny. Guess they had to cut back to pay Gigi.

Pending a clean race, Marc will win. His form, corner speed, breaking, they're all above the competition. The RC214V is his paint brush. The track his canvas. The kid is absolute magic. It's like watching Stoner, but for some reason just a little more exciting.

Shit, I'm surprised you could even SEE Dani! He's so small, you can't even see him in the paddock! LOL :)

So are we all in agreement?

Miller for Moto3 win
Kallio for Moto2 win
Marquez for MotoGP win?

Sound like a "safe" bet? :)

Of course there are many of us would love to see Miller take another one. The kid is good, with a touch of that Doohanesque 'attitude'. And no fear. But he has a lot of competition in this category.

Of course Marquez has to be far and away the favourite in MotoGP.

Moto2 is probably the hardest one to pick. Three or four of them in with a chance. Should be a good race. The bikes are probably more equal in this category than the other two.
