Nicky and Hector.Business as usual, hook or by crook get one fast lap in.
Good to see that the Ducati CAN get round the track quickly. Bodes well for Rossi in the race. No new parts so it's down to fine tuning and whether Bridgestone have brought any decent tyres with them.

FP3 will probably change everything though.

Right, practice means nothing so why even participate. They practice with two goals in mind. One, get a set-up dialed in to get the fastest lap they can for qualifying. Second, get a set-up dialed in for the race. Do that better than anyone else and you can make a run for the championship.

It was on tele.. Hector and Nicky ran soft tyres at the end . Everyone else on hard. Did no on really notice them both being a sec quicker on their last runs??? Casey trying the same he tried on Rossi, 5 grid place penalty due if you ask me. Why is he not doing what he has been telling Rossi to do??? His bike is the best out there and he's had more upgrades than Ducati. Does casey have any credibility left??? Nope.

Gee, I wonder if there's a correlation between who is consistently fastest in practice and who wins races and is ultimately champion? Probably not.

Him 2010 hayden qualify behind Stoner both with Ducati.. But as usual Hayden lost on race and Stoner did well.. Him 2011 the same Hayden beat Rossi on qualify but on race Rossi beat Hayden.. This year can be the same Hayden winning on qualify Rossi on race..! What is importante is racing on Track, if on practices and qualify riders win some points i can bet that Rossi would try harder.. but they dont win.. Winning is all about Track racing doing the 20 or more laps the fastest he can.. Rossi will be there is my bet!!
