GG Rossi.. Impossible to do better thats 4sure.. you guys see what i mean about sliding the bike, it helps the bike to turn more fast the front to the inside of the corner.. Its beautifull to wach no doubt but it will kill the grip of the tyres and thats not the way Vale likes to ride.. He was allways smooth and thats the tecnic to make live esayer for riders.. Lorenzo have a great style he to is very smooth but when we combined this tecnic with one bike make to suit the style we have one fantastic package.. All hope he change the Devil into one usable bike, not one bike to scare the sponsors and at the end only makes a good noise..

Yes, small improvements, but I'm afraid that all the small improvements in the world wouldn't be enough to get this bike at the same level of Yamaha and Honda and what's needed is a revolutionary change of the engine, i.e.: smaller and movable closer to the front tire.

Hope I'm wrong though.

When you look at it objectively, to cut the overall gap from 30+ seconds to 17 seconds is significant, as is only a half second gap during the lap. The first 3 rows were really, really close. Keep working, and let's hope for a productive Mugello and Aragon test.
