@maslow - Apparently when Jorge was a child he would always here his dad hammering away in his shed, he uses that repetitive constant noise in his head to help with his consistency.

jorge's race simulation was nice...except that nobody races at 5pm in the evening, and the race is usually for 20 odd laps and not 10.

So let me get this straight: the guy does 10 laps after 5pm on a cooling track, sets some good times in the last 4 laps and we call that a 'fearsome race simulation'?

Check when MM did his race simulation - bang on at the hottest part of the day, for 20 laps. That's usually how it's done and that's how it was always been done. Ask JB and co.

Plain and simple Stoner Made Ducati, Everyone knew this when he was there and after he left it became clear that Ducati had no clue and had become arrogant from there success, so much so they pushed away there golden goose.

I bet that Audi have a plan to sort this out and I am sure they will but it maybe in the last year of proper Prototype bikes!! Dovi took this ride for the pay cheque but only now does he know the price!!

@ jamesk
Race craft doesn't improve lap times but it can win a race. Just look at Laguna 08, Rossi knew that if stoner got a little gap on him he would run away with the race so every time stoner passed him he did everything he could to pass back straight away.
If you are not the fastest then you just have to break the other riders rhythm to level the playing field and maybe force them to make an error.

@ simulation.
Jorge did simulation @ 4:30 PM and Marquez started simulation @ 3:40 PM. ofcourse there wil be some temperature difference of one or two degrees maximum it will not affect the laptimes so much. Definetel Jorge feels comfortable on bike.

it seems that the guys at ducati are talking like last year and the year before is it scripted all the talk about ducati needing to bring something big the try? isn't that what rossi wanted but never got here is hoping audi get it sorted just to make the season more exciting as i can see the ducatis fighting it out with the CRT's this season and that would be really embarrassing
if only they had listened to vale from the start,who knows what it would have been like ?
