I have an interest in Dovi taming the Ducati, as well as general Ducati improvements.
Casey's time on this test in 2009 (his last ride on the Ducati) 2.01.320...Rossi's last ride test time 2.00.824.
Progress but probably down to Engine.
Nicky in 2009. 2.02.493....this test (so far) 2.02.110
An improvement but probably down to engine.

This test (so far)Nicky is .381 slower than this test last year. Dovi is .650 slower than Nicky's last years time.

not knocking the guy (Rossi)at all, BUT remember that Testing means nothing until the flag drops. there is no way he will suffer like he did for the last few years, but its also worth noting that a young kid who has ridden a GP bike twice is in front of him. Marquez should be getting the props here for speed/times if anything. I really hope Vale does well this year even if only for the good of the sport. but vale SHOULD be top three with a record like his, so its not the second coming, its normal service resumed.

.5 of a second a lap is quite a bit but if the weather is good tomorrow Rossi could close the gap, then again the young guys may stretch it out to a second......

Anyway lets wait for the racing to begin before we make too many rash predictions but changing to the Yamaha from the Ducati hasn't made as much difference as some hoped it would, Rossi is closer to the Satelite bikes than to the front runners.

all we have to do now mattbloke is see if MM can race/battle with these top guys. bit differnt then just riding around for lap times and set up.

he may start to choke and start taking out other ridres again, he may crash alot, he might want to win it from the start like Sic use to and bin it on cold tyers.. time will tell.

Whoever wins the championship in 2013 will really be the best cause it's not going to be easy for any one of them, 4 amazing riders. The Honda team looks stronger though.
