1.5 seconds of Rossi,s time is 20 to 30 seconds over a race distance and probably a whole minute off Lorenzo Stoner and Pedrosa etc. That may sound critical but he will need to be much quicker than that. You will all shout that hes not used to the bike etc but the really quick guys are on the pace straight out of the box.

I am sure he will have been told not to push it too hard and crash, just learn from it. Mr Bartholemy may be a little annoyed even though he arranged the test, if Scott is not available in 2 weeks. Best to see how he compares with Ianone

@ellis " Rossi isnt hampering dovi, the tech 3 bike is basicly the same as the factory bike, lorenzo, rossi and stona could win on it."

This tells me that you and many others HAVE NO IDEA how MotoGP works. The Satellite bikes are NOT "basically the same" as the FACTORY bikes. The electronics on the factory bikes is highly tuned where the Satellite bikes get "de-tuned" electronics to make DARN SURE the Satellite bikes are not better than the factory bikes.

The factory does this so THEIR rides finish 1st or 2nd not a Satellite bike. They didn't have this level of electronics with the 990s and that is why back then a Satellite rider COULD win a race.

Those days are LONG GONE.

Good rider, but front end heavy and a big slider a terrible ocmbination to go fast in mgp. Also elbows on thje gorund don t work in moto gp (ask ben or elias). I mean race fast. As for talent, his size didn t hamper him in 125cc and didn t set the world on fire. Do not start calling hom the next mgp world champ or you ll burn him after his first year.
