Vinales and Lorenzo were fast in FP1. This is gonna be a firecracker!

Check your local listings, as they say. Coverage is on BeIn Sports 1 and qualifying is included, so it starts a few minutes before 10AM, EST on Saturday, I think.

I would really love to see Vinales win this!!! I'm also looking to see a couple of my former M2 favorites do well (Zarco and Folger), but that might be a stretch. And by "do well", I'd like to see at least one of them in the top ten.

Mav is looking very fast. MGP FP2 had a few surprises.

None that I know of.

Herrin and the lady are really quite awful on BeIN, waiting for the rain. Shame. I like Josh.

The lady is nice to look at. Josh is a nice guy but he's not the best choice to fill a rain delay. I'm not a huge fan of beIn Sports, but I'll take what I can get.

I guess they decided not to try the new wet running in Quatar... so much for that plan.

Wet under lights sounds like a nightmare.

Indeed, imagine looking thru a wet visor with all of that glare. This is the first time I've seen QP cancelled entirely. Boy o boy if it rains Sunday and they've had no wet track time.....

Typical Rossi, back on the third row. He'll come through, as usual. Much like he did when JLo came onto the team, he's going to have to study Vinales' riding and relearn a few things. He is the master, and he will get there. Zarco.. wow! Can't wait to watch the race

I too believe that Rossi will come through but this new, younger set of pilots is pretty impressive. We just may see 10 different winners this year.

M3 is always a treat. I'm amazed at how well the tires hold up given the constant attacking. Sure the light weight bike is a major factor in that but still these guys are constantly chopping and changing.

Spoiler content

GP was fun. Zarco must be really bummed I'm sure and Lorenzo continues to prove that he is nowhere near the racer that Rossi is. Crashlow...well what did I expect? But Vinales is one to watch oh baby.
