So it rained during FP2 and many of the big names didn't set a top 10 time, if it rains during FP3 tomorrow, Q1 could be very interesting.... BB33 didn't even set a time in FP2 :o

Pol Espargo has consistently been the quickest this weekend.  He has qualified well and he has something to prove.  But the weather forecast for tomorrow has a lot of rain and that may upend everything.  Looking forward to this though.  And who knows, maybe BB33 will find something for tomorrow.

Does anyone have some photo's and info on the suspension system they are using for the launch but are starting to use during the race too once they're onto long straights?

The Yamaha's have two levers on the left side, one for the clutch, the other to suppress the suspension for the start. In the commentary yesterday and during warm-up today, they spoke of Qautararo moving his levels so that the suspension one is more easily accessible during the race and that Rossi was spotted doing the same this morning.
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

Is it not the holeshot device?

It has actually become better to watch without MM... :pot:
For sure. However, now that #33 is on the grid, it is as if the rest simply disappeared :peepwall:

What is a Kalex ? Old 125 / 250cc classses were much better imo. Motogp is exciting, interesting MM’s lap record from last year is half a second faster than yesterdays qualifying  :o

Holy Moly! I have never seen Rossi that rattled by an on-track incident. TG no one seriously injured. Can they change tyres under a red flag?
