@BangBum,

Rossi has rolled out the soft tire to get a toe hold on the first day before the inevitable tumble to 8th by the end of the day. The other riders were having a chat and a talk while doing their laps while laughing at the Ducatis progress. Their just sandbagging so Ducati aren't laughed at in the press...Dorna instructed even the test riders to slow down.

BangBum what are you finding so hard to understand?????Rossi's times were so bad in the first test that he SHOULD be looking at beating that as a start point.

The other teams were miles in front....duh!!!!!!

Of course Rossi should get closer as he was way off the pace at the first test.I expect he will be battling to get inside the top 5 here at the end of the day.Where do you think he will be?

As much as all the lovers or haters of any one rider are falling out, it is only testing as has been said, one thing to mention is the old saying when the flag drops the bulls-it stops, i think this saying is very much the point with this season so far, not a Casey fan but i am impressed with his performance so far, good luck to all for the remainder of testing and the entire season

BangBum the other riders and teams can afford to play cards at lunch and have a couple of beers while laughing at the sequence of 80 second fix ups that have lasted 3 months.

The comment of the day doesn't deserve to be the comment of the day. There is nothing to be afraid of. Compare his time against Casey's. I have no doubt that when the racing starts he'll get some good drubbings from Casey, Horhay and Dani. And possibly Ben too.

@Banga

My point is, nobody can lap as fast as they did in the first test. There must be some factors that affect the lap times, and since we don't know what it is yet, it is better to compare riders' lap times from the same test session.

I imagine the more rubber that's laid down the times will get better and better.

It's nice to see Rossi already close to his fastest lap from the first test. Now we will see how much Ducati has improved or he has to get that extra second plus some tenths.

Honda occupying 4 riders in the top 5 I guess im not surprised they have come out gunnin again. I feel a great season ahead like some others have echoed can't wait.
