Marquez beat fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo to the top spot by just 0.001s after the reigning world champion again took the top spot from Cal Crutchlow. Factory Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi set the fourth...

Interesting

It's very interesting this new qualifying. Lots of front runners accepting a lowish position just to stay in Q1, while others with something to prove (Dovi / Marquez) going for it. Not really my cup of tea - bring back proper Quali or Superpole.

Good point SM

Curing the Duke's pump could be reason. He does use a larger rear rotor and tends to lean on the rear quite a lot (dirt tracker days...) but to see it glowing red?! That's some going as only a tiny percentage of brake force/bias is on the rear wheel!

Haven't quite got myself around

the vagaries of the new qualifying system yet wosi, and I suspect it won't be all that important, but perhaps 3rd.

I think he may win the race though, he did last time out on a Yamaha at Qatar.

Its in the nature of ALL racers car or bike to be unhappy with their "package". You have to learn to accept thats the way of things. I`ve followed motorsport for lots of years and I`ve never heard anyone say they`re totally satisfied with their machinery...unless in the first few glorious minutes after a win.

"Thanks to my team, they put a great car/bike under me...." You don`t tend to hear that during qually!
This is for your information, although I`m annoyed at myself for responding to such a miserable moron as you.

Erm, should I respond to this after the 'miserable moron' remark? Yes everybody wants the fastest bike, so what?  It's so obvious you don't need to say it.  Maybe he thinks that by repeating this mantra over and over it will happen, he will get the goods, haha, I should like the guy, he's funny in a kinda stupid way. If I were his boss I wouldn't find it funny though. STFU Cal.
