Quite a bit faster than FP1 last year.
I hope Nicky can keep up the momentum, he put in a quick lap but just the one.
Casey not far off the lap record already!
Good performance from Dovi, and he was good here last year.
More to come from Rossi I think.

The lap times and bike setup today will be largely irrelvant come Sunday, it is predicted to be 12 degrees celsius cooler on Sunday (17 versus 29 today).

Nicky got 291.3 km/h

Rossi got 286.9 Km/h (eeny weeny too much TC)

I guess Rossi needs to remove the TC and get some balls to ride that bike.

One of the Eurosport gents asked if Honda gave Nicky a bike for the weekend. :D

Though it's nice to see Ducati get a good setup on the first try, it's likely the best one they'll find all weekend.

The drivel still flows... RdP showing Ducati strength? Like What POS it is.. As opposed to when he was on a Honda and placing 5th/6th. The Ducati is rubbish and Rossi can't and won't ride it like Stoner. Not at the end of his career.

Gone also are the days when wild card riders won racers and podiums. Jst a procession these days, hardly any racing

Rossi is constantly testing new parts idiots... look again he's moved into with in a second of stoner in FP3, ahead of Hayden who has been on the bike 3 years now.

The R man seems to have taken the ducati to where it was when Stoner was on it at his worst. Thats is, the R mans best is almost equivalent to Stoners worst on the ducati.
