According to motocuatro Yamaha took 1 bike per rider, no spare engines and no spare parts which would limits the riders from going flat out and the reason why they left early.

So should see the real times by race day.

Not dissing Marquez.

@ Simo58

You do realize that Bradl, Lorenzo and Rossi are all off the pace of Marquez's best time.....right? Rossi is only a half second off of Lorenzo.

@ Mikey

Good point about the consistency.

3 very small Spanish chaps going round quite quickly, what a surprise. Why not hold all the races in Spain and let us follow some other more interesting World Championship?

Well, so far its pretty much as I thought it'd be with DP, JL & VR, but MM's pace I didn't expect to be so high.

Like others though, its going to be the racing that counts, and staying on board at the limit is some the others have had time to learn, while MM's mecurial pace and attacking style might (might) mean he attacks the scenery instead of taking the flag (at least to start with).

VR? Well, too early to say, but so far it looks like the 1s (av) off the pace on a Duke might have been 0.5s the bike, and 0.5s VR? I say this simply as (so far) VR is consistently 0.5s off JL on the Yam. With the pace of the Repsols, then (if all stay on) form so far says podiums are out of reach for VR. We shall see if race day changes the status quo at Qatar!
