The interesting thing to take note of is how short most people's memories are.

Updates arriving after the season opener was a repeat statement.

Much has been said about how the development period was extreemly short.

I take my hat off to those people who have to endlessly repeat the same stuff to idiots.

lol...3-4 races ??? they seem to take moe time making these parts than they did making the whole bike.....

well other than that...as rossi said, his feeling with the bikes was better at the first test...plus in this test he wasnt concentrating on a super fast lap since there were so many things to test..plus he may not have found optimal setup of the bike (like what the satellite teams have been doing)....

so since there wont be any major updates next time + good weather

id say with the bsae setting of the first test + the improved electronics from this test + an optimal setup for that track = a better position in the table

and plus when it comes down to races, we saw rossi's qualification vs final race position last year...he tends to keep his pace in the race...also he is good at maintaining tires which will be imp. this time

Preziosi has proved to be incompetent and should have been replaced with a better team manager. And the team could use some fresh engineers as well because their glacial like reaction and improvement of the bike is no excuse in this series. If they do not have the parts to improve the bike by May that puts Rossi and Hayden even farther back if they don't have good results. Also, if they are getting the parts by May that doesn't mean they'll be proven or adjusted enough to be effective. The decision to go a conventional frame should have been made early last season not at the end what a bunch of mo-rons.

Kukisan it's unlikely they're sandbagging as it was noted Rossi looks ragged and upset. I'm sure Rossi was hoping they would have closed the gap better than they have by this test. I don't believe Preziosi that they've been working around the clock otherwise they'd have some parts by now. The saving grace is that Rossi will make do and as long as he's more comfortable with this iteration of the bike compared to last years abomination then he'll get the bike to do better at races. Preziosi should be fired if they don't get the bike competitive this year.

“We have three different groups of designers”

Well, there's the problem. Maybe they should get those guys talking to each other. Maybe over a nice breakfast cappuccino.
