How was the last test such a failure? Has there been another test since Valencia in Nov?

Will give us an idea if Ducati have managed to improve their bike. Having Casey magic the thing to the front, whilst admittedly crashing more than is ideal, may have been OK in the past, but if they don't win with Rossi on board its gonna bring their ability to build quick bikes into question.... Should Rossi not get the thing working he will no doubt do a poo when thinking of the prospect of the HRC/Stoner combo!

Looking forward to seeing if Stoner can carry his good form to another circuit and where Spies is. Apart from that not much new thisyear is there???? We need more bikes and new talent on the grid.

Sepang 1 will tell a story. Any failure by the Ducati outfit to be right up there will be deemed less of a 'bad test',but rather,a disaster(within the ranks of course).
Just wait till Sepang 2 and 'its only testing'.HA.
Mind you,the Quatar night test is also 'only testing'.
I guess when the lights dip on race night,it will be 'only testing' for 2012,barring a dramatic Ducati victory.

Naturaly the Sepang test is going to of huge interest to the fans.And lets face it,all eyes will be on Vale and the Duke.Lots of pressure on them to perform.Anything other than top 3 will be seen as a bad show by many.We will see!

Who said Valencia was a bad test? All the manufactures got plenty of information from the test, it was a test wasn't it?
Rossi gave the Duke engineers plenty of information to alter the bike to his preferences.
Relax guys, the doctor and his team are relaxed.
