Seems to me that Valentino Rossi should not be on a bike that is equal to all others as he is making it look laughable and showing how easy it is to beat everyone.

Poor Casey is going from on top of the world in 2007 to down in the dumps as the years progress. Year 3 is upon us and counting.

This testing results does not bode well for Rossi's competition. As I see it, give Rossi a bike that is equal and no one will even smell his exhaust fumes. His race craft simply gives him 10 to 20 percent over the others. Testing just proved it.


Rossi for 10 in 2K10. Lorenzo will be 2nd with a hard fight for 3rd between Dani and Casey.

It is easy to see Rossi is desperate to try and stay at the top because Stoner has been in the headlines as obviously the best out there. :)
The pressure is really getting to Rossi and frankly he looked dangerous and out of control while Stoner calmly and methodically unravels the new Ducati.
Stoner is the best yes and will rightly be crowned as he should be in 2010! :D :D
Lorenzo has to get used to his bike also as he is finally on a bike equal to his team mate for a whole season. :rolleyes: :D :D

Majority of the field seem to be 1.5 - 2 secs down at the moment. I am hopeful things will get closer after the next test. Rossi is already on good pace. The man is a great developer ,has good input to get a balanced, fast, bike. Honestly Lorenzo is lucky to have hoped on a team with someone who has already developed a winning machine. It's helped him greatly these first years. I think it's going to help Spies learning curve too. Good to see him make a good jump up the time sheets on day 2.

@Dray.....Seems to me that Valentino Rossi should not be on a bike that is equal to all others as he is making it look laughable and showing how easy it is to beat everyone.

Yes it's easy to beat everyone. That includes your countrymen Hayden and Spies.

As a matter of fact he managed only to marginally beat Stoner in the last 2 years, with the best equipment out there. He was soundly beaten when he was on *equal* equipment in 2007 - well not equal - it was actually slightly better than the others as evidenced by his and Edwards' string of poles at the beginning of 2007. What a moaner he was that year - so plain for everyone to see.

Can't help but feel Stoner was testing bits and pieces as much as he was testing his own level of fitness. He won Sepang in the heat in 2007, but looked physicaly shattered after the race. Those fatigue issues were evident back then. Very susceptible to heat and humidity. Strength to you Casey. Ducati at this early stage already look a good, balanced package, the best they've looked since 2006. I guess after Valencia 2009, Stoner wryly recognised the fact that if you don't start, you can't win. You can't win if you don't finish.

Issor....lets look in the win column for 2008 and 2009 between Rossi and Stoner. Marginally is not the word you want to use. Beatdown could be substituted.
