Pedrosa had the hard tyre for most of the session too. IIRC he put on a soft for the end by was held up by a lot of traffic.

Stop underestimating Rossi, just stop it...

Very informative, and it highlights what was stated by the members with common sense who posted in the other article (i.e..different objectives between VR and NH to ascertain answers to different questions). I'm glad that the article put the bullsh-t to rest.

you got to hand it to Rossi for getting in their and really trying to figure out his bike. Casey probably would have had it in first, but the bike would never get any where, hopefully Rossi and company keep their resolve strong in order to get that bike fit to fight.

BTW, other riders were out on softs at the end of the session, so it would seem Ducati isnt as far down as it used to be, but on race pace that under-steering issue will probably sap their tires too much.

Interesting to hear Nicky say that the dirty track actually helped him!
I would have liked him to expand on what he meant by that.Most would have said the dust on track was a problem.
