Not very many laps done by anyone. You'd think they would have sussed it out by now that Malaysia may not be the most reliable place, weather wise, for testing. Actually it is reliable, it always rains.

Dovi only 0.8 behind Rossi. Interetsing.

If Dovi continues to improve, dont be surprised to see him beat Rossi a few times this year.

Now that would be very ironic.

By and large, unimpressive stuff from the entire bunch.
Let me qualify the statement. Millions are spent getting teams opportunity to test at exotic locations and yet you have a situation where,once they arrive,they spend half of the day at least sitting on their collective backsides. Not long ago everyone bemoaned the fact that limited testing was doing the series harm. Now,they have all the time in the world,yet if everything is not 100% they sit in the box..
On average the riders put in 125 km today and they did not even have to contend with oncomming traffic. WOW !!
Then they complain they don't have enough testing time.
Rain came down and so what ? Go test ! There is no gaurantee that it will not rain on race day. Witness 2012.

@ar86, what excuse is needed?

It was raining, he's barely 0.2 away from Lorenzo, which I might add is smaller than the gap from Pedrosa to Lorenzo. You seem like the legions of people looking for any excuse to knock Vale down when actually he hasn't done a half bad job. Marquez and Bradl though have been exceptional.

I agree! People are making it seem like he's wayyy off the mark (..and this is on the older 2012 bike), and the fact that they mention Dovi catching him is laughable. It's funny, when Rossi was on the Ducati and not far behind, people were quick to say "it's the rain", but when Dovi is close in PRACTICE, he's all of a sudden going to eclipse Rossi on the M1 and making progress. Funny stuff! Just for a moment, I wish certain people would be realistic when it comes to evalutating potential.
