Why do Stoner fans don't just read the times, Dani is faster in this TEST.. and that's it.... There no " Stoner is sandbagging, Stoner is not showing his cards, Stoner is on the worst setup ".. Nobody can tell that for sure, and Stoner fans just says this things just to make themselves better so they can sleep well.. We are just readers, so read the time, unless there is a psychic here who can read Stoner's mind. And let's not forget, Stoner have more time on the 1000cc Honda, so there is really no excuse. So for this day, well done Dani, well done.. now let's move on.. Period.

You guys are so amazing. You have your finger right on whats going to happen next year. Can I look in your crystal ball sometimes, mine is never clear enough to make the predictions you guys do with such authority. However how did last years predictions go for you? Just wondering. You should bet lots of money on it and you will be rich for sure. Sure wish I had one of them good balls. Mine is a piece of junk and I will never be rich.

Test time is a mind game time.

Everything riders said at this point of time is between the the lines. They give you an insight view but you can't get it all what it mean from the result or just swallow directly from what they're saying. It's too naive to expose valuable information to their rivals and competitors.

...well durr you still have to put in a fast lap else you don't know how the bike handles when you push it...

Close but not quite 100% true. With the onboard data logging, the lap time itself means very little.

Working on a few problem corners, braking balance, turn in etc doesn't require you to push for a whole complete lap. A laptime is just an indicator of your average performance over the lap.

Still it's good to be able to rub your laptime in the face of sombody else's :-)

Pedrosa on top again I bet Stoner is eating his heart out now!

JANEK what a great sense of humor you have. I mean you were kidding right! Cause seriously the only one not eating his heart out right now is Casy who is trying to work out where he is going to fit his 2011 World Champ trophy. If you just jam it in with the other 30 something winner trophies and the heaps of second and third place ones and the old WC trophy then you still have no room for next years. Oh well just have to get that pretty little minx Adriana to call an architect to design a new bigger trophy room. But, and problems never cease, which house does it go in? The Harborview place in Monte Carlo? The Villa at St.Moritz?, the ranch in NSW? Yep poor bloke he is eating his heart out right now. Get a grip.

""The front tyre gives us quite a lot of chatter so this is something we are trying to improve and the new bike helped with that slightly," he said. "

Maybe it's because the riders are entering pretty much every corner these days with the rear wheel two inches off the ground!? :)
Every single one of them is bringing a whole new definition to 'on the edge'.

The skill level of any of the riders on the track I believe is at least equal to any other rider in history, and in most cases, probably far surpasses them.

...except perhaps for Mick Doohan...that guy was a God :)

Sorry, meant to quote
""It's something we've had since last season with the 800s is a lack of feeling and some chatter coming from the rear on the way into the corner which is something we still need to improve with the RC213V but we believe we know the direction to go in to improve this situation. "

I don't know who will win the WC next year.. It's most unclear from a test where riders aren't riding at the best of their ability.. Some may put in a bit more effort and some a bit less.. But think 2012 will be a year of close racing(looking at the gaps among riders).. And the first half of the season should be the most interesting..

A bit skeptical bout the CRT's though.. If they continue like this, imagine the embarrassment when they go off the mark when the red lights are out.. But still have to wait for performances on them by established riders such as Edwards and other good ones from moto2..
