Great practice, terrible forecast

Today’s practice day went great. The bike was in recalcitrant mood first thing, slapping its bars everywhere and ruining my confidence. A few set-up changes got it sorted though, and through the afternoon it was a pleasure to ride hard and the times tumbled.
I’m now really happy with my dry pace. The thing is, tomorrow is forecast as very wet. New rain tyres are being fitted as I type and then we’ll see how qualifying goes. I want to win as much as ever, but I won’t take any big risks if the conditions live up to the BBC’s severe weather warning.
