The front row is all Honda: Marquez, Pedrosa, and Bradl. The second row is all Yamaha: Aleix Espargaro on the "Open" 2012 factory Yamaha YZR-M1 in NGM Mobile Forward Racing colors, followed by Lorenzo and Rossi. And the Ducatis? After all their promise, it was back to nowhere, despite soft tires, engines moved forward, and top speeds equal to the best Hondas. Cal Crutchlow was seventh, Andrea Iannone, lately so far up the list, a lowly ninth, and Dovizioso 10th. Smith on a Tech 3 Yamaha, was eighth.
