Rossi will demoralize, and decimate.

Rossi has been on a roll, and now that he's got that number 1 plate, there is no reason for him to not go all out (like he ever really holds back!).

I think since Stoner has home track advantage, he will have a good showing, but be no match for Rossi.

My prediction for podium,

1. Rossi (by a good margin)
2. Stoner
3. Lorenzo (seems to be riding good at the end of the race, just needs to get a good start this time)

Would be nice to see Bayliss dice it up with the GP boys too. If he is in the mix, I might have to change my prediction (Rossi, Bayliss, Stoner).

Nicky was on top in the rain, looking good at nearly a second in front of everyone else.

It could be anyone's race if it's wet!

Dry weather will yield results that are very familiar methinks.

In the dry, too!!
30 mins to QP!

Hayden's done well at Phillip Island in the past, but I just don't see his bike being good for the whole race. I hope it is though!

Unfortunately, since P1-3 is already pretty well decided for the season, a lot of the teams are going to be testing and using "next year's" stuff to develop. We'll see if that's the case.

Hayden was claiming issues with his bike in dry conditions, I guess he got it sorted out!

Awesome qualifying!

I love the way they kept taking it back over and over and over, and then someone would sneak in and take it all away! Brilliant!

I wish Rossi would have made it for the last lap, but with that get off, I'm actually kinda surprised he went out at all

Rossi is going to beat Stoner or crash trying. Nicky may be looking for a fight as well, he wants to rub it in Hondas face as Pedroas is struggling to Q 6th. Lorenzo is gonna be a factor too despite a crappy Q. My official pick......

Rossi, Stoner, Nicky.
