Whoever wins next year I don't really care TBH. Can we just have at least one overtake move per lap not per race!! A bit of battling!!! Or I'm turning off after Moto3 and Moto2 to watch some paint dry.
Disagree button is on the right.

lol @ the rossi comments.

the guy could be 2nd or 3rd fastest behind the hondas and as far as you people are concerned it still wouldnt be good enough.


Vale for podiums next season.. watch this space.
all the haters will magicly change names again and start to barrack for him.

"Vale for podiums next season.. watch this space."

Wow, haven't expectations changed. This time last year, it was just so obvious that he was going to eventually win races, now it's obvious that he'll podium.

What's going to be the proof of his development genius next year? Rossi to finish races?

New Rules, new bikes, new tyres. New tyres? Now there's a thing - didn't Valentino become a Bridgestone Ambassador? So maybe the new Bridgestones might be formulated to suit next year's Ducati better than this year's tyres? And will that mean that it suits the Hondas less? The key to next year's Championship might be decided not by the bikes, but by their compatibilty with the tyres. ( I'm just supposin')

2 things:
Rossi is on (yet another) completely new bike that hasn't turned a wheel in anger until this test and is instantly 4th fastest. I'm no slavish Rossi fan but this performance bodes well for the 2012 season IMO.

The second thing is the CRT bikes: two seconds a lap faster on Wednesday than Tuesday and the fastest about a second off the pace of the slowest prototype MotoGp bike. Anyone willing to take money to bet against some CRT bikes regularly beating some of the slower MotoGp bikes? Next year if we have some races like this year does anyone want to bet against a CRT bike making the rostrum.

Bring on 2012. I can't wait!

@ bri t

No lap times for Melissa as I think the transponder was switched off, but she did 2 runs on Cal's 800 (the first being 20 laps), and according to Tech 3 mechanic Steve Blackburn "rode really well". I think she's going to put up more details on her blog, but in the meantime, 2 pics:
