there r so many idiot here...lots of "expert" say that Dovi only achieved this result because of the soft tyre,he wanted to do some "flying laps" to satisfy the sponsors...but there is so false...He has tested a new engine and a new (factory)electronics all day...This 1st place was the result of hard effort and they have tried out some set up-s because of the electronics,He feel much better the yamaha m1 and (it could be strange but) He has so much talent and underrated at the same time...so, you should watch after the truth and don't strew false comments and opinions...thank you!
Forza Dovi!

Dovi's "first place" testing time (due to "a new engine and a new (factory)electronics...") was still slower than Casey's P1 time set on a Honda with a chattering front and rear tire.

Dovi's test time: 1m 41.997
Stoner's P1 time: 1m 41.295

'Davizioso was never near Stoner or Pedrosa on the Honda and now he is the fastest Yamaha rider - what does that tell you?'

Not much 'cause he ain't. Dovi is clearly a fine rider but on any given day Lorenzo is faster. More often then not Lorenzo will beat Dovi. I dont have numbers handy, and I wont take that time, but going backwards and forwards in time I'll put money on it. Dovi will be up there, but the championship will come down to Stoner and Lorenzo. Pretty clear they are the two fastest guys out there now. Neither are perfect but both those guys truly are aliens. It would be interesting to see some kind of scientific test measuring reflexes and comparing them to an average human in that age category. Way off the charts no doubt.

@ MD Zane

No, the Tech 3 bikes aren't factory spec, they're just getting stuff handed down as the factory team upgrades. Still, it's good to see they ARE getting upgrades this year as I don't think they had any at all last season.
