Lorenzo definitely won't be the only rider giving Stoner a hard time next season - just watch Hayden back on a 1000 and see how Spies does - I think they'll surprise some people.

As for missing this test - pretty sure he'll be ok to ride with a bit of his pinkie missing. Two words Jorge: TROY BAYLISS! :-P

They don't have nothing to worry about the development of the bike because they are gonna allow free testings to the whole brands of bikes. They could use the remaining tires to do that, that's the only restriction is gonna be in motogp to test the 1000 bikes.

Only three racers have ever won a race on a Ducati,two of them have retired and we all know who the other one is it will take a quantum leap by Ducati and it's riders to be of any concern.
Ben Spies yes I agree he could be in the hunt perhaps.

I like Spies but he is not a great starter, a very good racer yes, but unless he gets that sorted against the likes of Stoner and Lorenzo he will never consistently be able to run with these lads, he will skin the tyres in the catching up process! if you think that Casey will be hanging round on that 1000 waiting for Spies, well we know the answer to that one as it won't sprinkle at the end of every race.

I'm not surprised that ill-informed idiot Charlie Cox would make disparaging comparisons between Bayliss's and Lorenzo's finger injuries. (The BBC should stop wasting money flying him to races to commentate as he's lazily phoning it in anyway). If Lorenzo had LOST the tip of his finger he'd be riding but fortunately it was found and reattached, so it's perfectly sensible for him not to want to risk undoing all the microsurgery by crashing again while it's still healing. Due to the changes to the testing rules for the MotoGP class, there's no reason to risk it.

Lorenzo is the only one who will challenge Stoner if his bike is up to it. HRC I think will again have the better package so 90% chance of Stoner to double up.
