so, the book is open this week, with Hayden giving the Pneumatic valve engine a run at donington, and if Fridays Free Practice is anything to go by, we could be seeing the long awaited return of repsol hondas dominance in the premier class. Pedrosa declined the new engine, deciding to run with the conventional spring-return valve system of old and incidentally (but not necessarily related) proved to be almost half a second behind the pace of his recently under performing team mate. Pedrosa did, however, part with his bike on Friday, which would definitely be affecting his times. One also has to wonder what injuries he is carrying since dumping it in Barcelona at the monday post-race testing, after blitzing the field in the main race. Casey seems to have found a reasonable compromise with his setup, and is by far and away the fastest man on track at the moment. The media is reporting stoner to be "upbeat" about the changes that were made after catalunya, and all going well, we should see him dominate the field at donington. Rossi has been decidedly quiet, but is still sitting in a very threatening 3rd according to FP lap times. this guy is a professional and always turns up on race day. I just dont know who to put my money on this week (not that i bet on motoGP) as casey has had my hopes up on numerous occasions, only to be comprehensively outraced most times. I dont really know if pedrosa will turn up to race, or just place....and the return of a competitive hayden?!? so lets have a wild and crazy stab in the dark; 1. Stoner 2. Edwards 3. Rossi we'll see!
