Why is Hayden so far off of Rossi's pace? 2+ seconds in FP1?? I'm guessing that because of the lack of testing time, Ducati have him testing new stuff so that Rossi can concentrate all his efforts on getting the best results possible.

Why is it always have to be a conspiracy when someone isn't doing well compared to Rossi on the team? Every track is different and the bike and tires react differently to track conditions. Maybe it's Hayden and his bike not doing well togehter at this track not because he's being a test mule. Stop the jealousy, give it a break. I don't see the satellite Ducati riders having a problem.

What was Stoner's hand gestures all about? Rossi too far back to be accused of getting his slip stream.. or was it just more petulance hiding behind ambiguity?

Did you see Stoner tappig the back fo his bike after the last lap. Pretty sure he was doing it to Rossi who wasn't even following close enough to get a tow. Does he not know you have to share a track with 16 other riders. Do all Aussie complain about everything this much?

Very good session indeed. The top five is going to be up to it on race day.Lorenzo is the clear favorite, but Simoncelli is on fire and Pedrosa means business.Rossi will play his part and may be more but I just hope Stoner doesn't become the next Gibernau,he should stick to what he knows best: riding flat out...He cares to much about Rossi he should focus on Lorenzo and Pedrosa..

Good luck to all guys...

FP2 Rossi ahead of Stoner...interesting.

At Qatar Rossi gained ground on the start relative to everybody, even Stoner.

The Yamahas cannot handle a straight almost a kilometer long, not yet anyway. I see a mobbing of Yamahas at the start.

The finish line is a fair way from the last corner...

Lorenzo still looks fast, and solid.

I dont like to see Stoner tappig the back fo his bike after the last lap for rossi. Stoner should show some respect to the senior and rival. thats one of the attitude of world champ. if you gonna be a world champ again please be act like one. How could u reach the love of the fans for you with that kind attitude. this boy really a punk
