First, I'm not surprised of the Anti-Rossi and Stoner brigade but seriously it's too early to predict anything. Second, being early days you have to figure that Honda and Yamaha (to a lesser extent) are far ahead in development of their bikes and Ducati just designed their current factory iteration so they'll be playing catch-up. Lastly, it's unlikely Rossi will stay that low, while I wouldn't predict him winning races off the bat he'll definitely do better than last year as they continue to develop this bike.

rossi started as first testing on track by 9:00 when the track was dirty en damp wile the rest started at 11:00 when the track was better and cleaned up from the riders before them....logical that there is a differens in laptimes, tomorrow when it is hopefully dryer you see less difference in laptimes.

The best CRT (Sutter+BMW) only run at 500cc 3-stroke pace. While the FTR+Kawasaki only can do at 250cc 2-stroke pace. I think if they use the SBK chassis and Electronics, they might be 2 seconds faster than that.

Most of the CRT really had a 10 years gap to catching up with the current GP paces. Exceptionally, Aprilia CRT only need 4 or 5 years gap to do the catching up.
