The sweeties Rider Alvaro Bautista doing very well and he can start Catalunya race from third row is very good for him and he already felt 1st podium here in 2009 when he on 250 cc, and last year he can finished very well on the 5th place. hope he can enjoy the race and grab a good achievement and always like too see his spirit with blue Suzuki bike, make screen more calm and cool.
The Rookie Karel Abraham will start on the end of grid, because in the early start of qualifying he got a heavily crashed and force him to go to medical center to did some check about his body. but like we know he's young and have a big spirit after the medical over he turn back again to the track, and riding his bike with his style and confident but he cant improve so he must happy to start from 15th.
And Ducati team Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden after using the new chassis in round 4, and for this round they both use the new engine.
Nicky Hayden at the start of the QP only able to take 8 and 10 position not get a good progress, but finally he finished the QP and will start the race from 3rd grid on 8th place and for Nicky Hayden start from 8th is not great, but he still happy because its the best qualifying of this season and he feel more closer than the front row.
Valentino Rossi doing all the track with good way, he able to grab 4th position but in the middle of QP time he trying to change the setting and he bit lost of time because he manage to change the rubber choose, in hard or soft tyres but he must doing like that to find the best setting for the race. and the end of the race he forced to much and he lost a second grid for start, but honestly 6th place or 7th its not to different to start the race, so we still able to see he will doing the best for take a podium again.

And he said "We're just 7th but the feeling is improve a lot. The gap from the top is still a bit too big, but with hard tyres we have a quite good rhythm and the new engine is better in acceleration and better to conrol."
