So in the first test it was Rossi and everyone claimed the Goat was back.

Now a kid only on his second outing is the fastest and it's... He will crash big time.

You Yellow panty boys are such clowns and it's only testing, most of you know nothing about racing and think that your scooter is the real deal. CSC that's all you are.

its not the bike, its the tires fellas. Just look how much better it is on the wet tires. Keep believing its the bike or the motor and every time it rains you will see Ducati's true potential when its not pushing a slick tire past it's performance envelope.

Very early days - first major test of the new season and still only on the first day. The teams are probably testing all types of setups, tyres, electronics etc

Things will become clearer on Thursday on who's fast and who isn't. Stoner's lap record is a sub 2 min and today's times are only 2m 1s.

Bring on 2013!!

Typical Ducati we don't listen to anyone, we do what we like ,why won't they change the engine it's so obvious to anybody it's gone as far as it will go ,been losing .4 a season since 2007 just eat humble pie change it save face and get rid of preziosi,it's simple or get used to seeing the rear ends of the crts.

Normally, the age/experience issue becomes a disadvantage due to lack of hunger while the up and comers want it all...

The problem for the up and comers in 2013 is that vale seems more hungry now than ever before.

Every ones times will improve but as the last few seaon's testing v racing have shown, the "pecking order" doesn't alter that much.

I think Dovi made SUUCCHHH a bad choice going to ducati, this is gonna severely hurt his career.
i dont see him making any good races with that POS.

Early days yet but a number of observations (my opinion only, not facts)...

MM should challenge for the WC this year

It was the duc and NOT vale

JLo may not be smiling too often this year

Pedro will come good (eventually)

...and to the twit stating stoner is still the benchmark, maybe on a time trial basis for one lap at one circuit but 9 is the magic (modern era) number I think your referring to.

@Abhishek...thatz bcos these r thinkin and development riders, not a one lap wonder riders. They test hard with different parts and setups, unlike some riders who dont like testing and then blame their teams, other riders and marshals for losin it. :)
