man, the Zuk and RC211 were the fastest top speed on the track.

With a good launch, Nicky should be well on his way to a Podium.

Yes, Marco went down on his second lap and did not paticipate in the remainder of the session. Injuries are unknown at this point. Bummer.

Melandri:

"It's a shame about the crash because we were doing a good job," said Marco, tenth fastest in first free practice. "I probably went a bit too deep and ran onto the green painted strip on the outside of the corner, It was a fast crash [and] a hard one - I bashed the inside of my left knee. I'm ok but I feel weak right now. The knee is really painful but thankfully the X-rays haven't shown up any breaks."

We should merge this with the other Estoril post to consolidate the information. Way to go Nicky up into second. But as you know, this is just FP. Qualies are what count... We'll have to wait until tomorrow.

+1 on the thread merge.

And I disagree, his problem is not qualifying, it's the starts! He leads the BMW M Award qualifying deal, so he's good to go there. Hope the clutch is good!

Who's getting up early to watch it live on m0t0gp.com? I want to see a real Rossi vs Nicky battle on the track. I think that is the only way Nicky can prove to the world that he can beat Rossi and earn the championship.

There have been so many other factors like malfunctions, being knocked down, passing on yellow flags, clutch problems, ect. A head to head battle is the only way to decide this thing for good; and the only way to silence the critics and truly please the worlds specators!!!!

DISCO, i agree. i still think that whoever wins it, wins it, and thus deserves it, but to see hayden put a pass on rossi for the champtionship would be one of the best moments in GP history, and seeing rossi put a pass on hayden for the champtionship...well, that would just be another moment in rossi history to put in the GOAT evidence bag.
