'Not too worried' rightly means he's a little concerned, and who wouldn't be? Lorenzos 08 pole was almost 2 secs quicker than Stoners time tonight which is a lifetime and indicates there is more to come from Yamaha and everyone else. Same track and conditions however, Stoner impressive.

Rossi is playing the game. Just like when he switch from honda. He toned it down a bit not to let the competition know what they really have. Rossi is the master of mind games and tactics on and off the track.

1.2 seconds ... when the condition warmer, things will go better ... so does CS time right?

Maybe VR don't want to risk being injured like DP was and endangered the whole race season because of that.

or maybe CS is a lot faster than VR this time.

Can't wait till the season start ...

Stoners outright pace is there for all to see, but practice is just that and scores no points. As he matures his biggest test will be to not let Rossi get under his skin and concentrate on the race. He knows Rossi is different class when it comes to the battle and feels under pressure to avoid geting involved because the liklehood is he'll come unstuck. Same applies to Pedrosa. Rossi is the master when it comes to f*cking with the young 'uns heads.

whatever it may seen, its just the free practise. where everybody could play their show in free.
so ...
vale played the mind games .... again?
maybe he does less faster than casey.(in fact, the duc is always fasterrrrr than yam, right? and doesnt matter at all)
whatever it is, vale's optimisme made this war getting warmer and enjoyble
bravo to casey ...
and also jorge (maybe he will be the pole again, let's see)

playing the mind games?
did ross ever play that kind of thing when switched to Yamaha?
that's great. nice straegy. and very suit for the condition of Yamaha. He is truly tactician then. good.
But casey in Ducat maybe no need to do that. coz in field, Duca is always strong. even compare to Honda. (is that right? just observ 2 years recently)

Rossi is obviously concerned.His chances at retaining the title in 2009 depend on Casey being 100% fit.Certainly if Casey is fully fit then he will take the title as Valentino is simply not as fast as Casey.
Sure Valentino had some advantage with experience but I think things will be rather different this year. :) :) :)

colder conditions seem to suit the ducati whenever there has been a cooler or drying track the duke has traditionally gone better than usual it seems.
although its always fairly quick with stoner on board!

Good to see Hayden catching up hopefully he can challenge podium on a regular basis.
