MotoGPMatters.com is here at a hot and humid Sachsenring and at full strength. Both David Emmett and Scott Jones will be chasing round the paddock looking for great stories and fantastic photos, so be sure to check back regularly. Right now, the sun is out and it's pretty warm, but it looks like being a weekend of three seasons in three days. Friday is expected to be very hot and muggy, with thunderstorms expected to arrive in the evening. The thunderstorms will mark a change in the weather, with the heat disappearing and temperatures dropping from a hot 29°C to a positively chilly 13°C on Saturday, bringing with them a healthy portion of rain. On Sunday, we move from autumnal chill to a spring-like 18°C, with clouds but no rain.
The weather is going to make finding a setup very difficult, as the lessons learned in the heat of Friday will be lost in the cool of the rest of the weekend. Added to that the likelihood of Saturday's two practice sessions being wet while the race is dry means that the 17-man MotoGP field will be very busy on Sunday morning trying to find a setup for the race.
