@Pintudo if those times are true then that is progress by Ducati!

I looked at last years pole and it was a 1:48 flat and Rossi was 1:49.6 and the fastest lap of last years race was a 1:48.4 while Rossi set a 1:49.2. The 1000's aren't necessary faster than the 800's around Mugello, some tracks this year they haven't been as fast!

I hope they can make an improvement and by Alex Briggs reaction they are!

...the year that Rossi switched to Yamaha and Stoner started with Ducati,"Rossi returned to MotoGP for the 2007 season riding the new Yamaha YZR-M1 800 cc. In the first race in Qatar he came second to Casey Stoner on the Ducati Desmosedici. In the second round of the season Rossi won the second race of the season in Spain, and would win 3 more races that season. Stoner dominated the season, winning 10 races to take his first title, 125 points clear of second place Dani Pedrosa. Pedrosa's win in the last race at Valencia combined with Rossi's retirement meant that he beat Rossi into third place by a single point. This was Rossi's lowest championship position since his first season in 1996 in 125s. His bike lacked competitiveness, particularly in top speed compared to the Honda or Ducati, and he threatened to leave Yamaha if they are unable to deliver a better package."

Rossi needs 3/4sec per lap to keep pace with Lorenzo and Stoner. He could probably run with Dani, Dovi and Crutchlow with another 1/2s per lap. And Bradl is getting better every race, riding a satellite Honda. And somewhere in all this Spies is still lurking.

In any case
the next two or three races will expose all

It seems the track has been resurfaced and Rossi said in GPOne that the grip is fantastic, so those times don't mean much. The track is better but the temperatures were too high. Again, we'll have to wait until everybody is there at the same time.
