    Moto GP race shifted to after Moto 3 and 2 is last of all.

    Scheduling conflict with F1 race.

    So less rubber on the track for the main race, who will thus favour?

    I don't think that side of things will matter too much really. It's not night and day, they'll have done gazillions of laps in all classes by then anyway.

    It's hard to see past Lorenzo and Marquez at the moment, but 3rd could be anyone from Cal to Rossi, to Dovi or even Petrucci.

    Weather / track temp will make more difference.
    Forecast Looks predominantly dry but it will be pretty cool on Sunday.
    I'm more interested in it staying dry at Pembrey!

    Silverstone's a horsepower circuit, anyone betting against a Ducati win?

    No, not this season, given the way the Ducatis are going, but the last 5 years its been Ducati, Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, Yamaha.

    Is it still a horsepower circuit? I thought it was more about getting that horsepower down since all the changes. Honda clearly had that at RBR last round so it's whether there's enough straight for Ducati to compensate.

    This is one of the few things I miss about not living in the UK. But I soon get over it

    Seems Silverstone has been resurfaced. Wonder if this will affect things?

    Rain forecast for Sunday. Forecast shows wet now so wet FP2 is quite relevant

    You'll have seen the advert to build the Rossi M1 in millions of weekly magazine episodes.

    Just looked and it's 905 to build
