Vale has the race pace so if hes finishing 4 or above in practice for fastest lap. Its all good and its first day of testing aswell. Chill people. Rossi will improve tomorrow and thursday.
I believe all the top riders will improve there times in the days to come. The question is, will mark keep up. I dont think so. He will drop back abit as the top guys up there level

Good to see Rossi up there with good times again and more importantly, happy. Rossi has never been a time trial rider if you look at his qualifying over his career. He's a racer. I'm confident he'll be up with Lorenzo and Pedrosa in terms of pace!

@ JDW You - same as so many people - are reading waaaay to much into this! It's the first day of a test. No-one, including Rossi, has done their fastest times yet. Rossi is 0.4secs off? Well yes he is, but he did this time in the middle of his sessions, unlike the top three who all did a quick lap right at the very end of the day, probably trying to claim that very unimportant slot at the top of the table.

None of this matters until the chequered flag goes down at the end of the race at Qatar, then and only then will we see who's likely to be where! Give it a rest man... And I'm NOT a Rossi lover before I get jumped on!
