"But I wonder if every 2011 bike test day by Ducati, using the GP11.1, would also be counted as a 2012 test day, as this bike was a 2012 bike destroked, but still legal as a 2012 bike."

@RobG

As long as the destroked motor is in why would it count against the 2012 test? The 2012 tests will only be done with a 1000cc motor. According to Dorna they have "inspectors" there to verify which bike is being run. The GP11.1 with the 800cc motor (since it is eligible for MotoGP competition)will only be run on race weekends and designated test for 800cc bikes.

But as you say, it's basically the same so Ducati can learn about the bike in either test.

Well well what a tad boring race... For Spies, he trully deserves this race win. He was fast, consistent and confident on the bike. Feel for Lorenzo, but that was a unfortunate incident. In a way it is good as we need to see the aggressive side of Lorenzo in the upcoming races to claw back lost points. Stoner, as usual, was consistent but for once he could not match Spies!
Rossi - you were gifted 4th place, however, I feel the carbon fibre chassis is too complex, like a spaghetti! I think Ducati needs to revaluate and try out different frames. For Rossi to be constantly out of the top fights, over time he could lose his upper limit of fighting at the edge. Not disregarding him, he would always be amongst one of the top riders. Ducati have A LOT of work left on their hands.
Sim - try being patient and it will pay dividends.

Roll on Mugello, can't wait to watch it!!

ah here we go, always someone to say Rossi was gifted
his position.

everyone who finished outside the top 3 was gifted 2 positions not just Rossi. Get off the bandwagon.

Simoncelli this season
After qualifying - :D
After race - :(
he will play an important role in deciding the championship though. has already taken out 2 championship contenders in separate incidents. Rossi's ambition outweighed his talent in 1 race but sic's ambition has outweighed his talent ever since the beginning of the season.

I wonder who Simo's next victim is... Probably Stoner or Rossi. Don't worry everyone gets a turn... I'll be seeing you in Indy or Laguna Ben, enjoy it wild you can!

Congrats to ben, glad to see him win. Simo, simo... it's bad luck a rider falls and the next behind him can't avoid to fall too, but... you should take that first left turn more carefully. Sic surpassed Jlo almost on the limit, and screwed it opening gas, tipical story.
