re: "in the F1 race, the pole position was a 1:35.6 from Vettel, and the fastest lap was a 1:39.3 (again from Vettel), and Hamilton won the race doing 56 laps in an hour and 35 mins."

A MotoGp bikes beats a F1 car in a drag race, because it's bloody fast on the straight, however a F1 car beats a Motogp bike in the corners by far because it has 4 wheels and down force and thats logical.

I find it strange you don't see this logic.

How many were present at the official test and have ridden the circuit before today - Marquez, Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Rossi, Bradl, Blake and Young. With Spies and Hayden using a Panigale on a different day. No others have done so, so today is their first experience. They will all reduce their times as this is only FP1 but some will reduce it by a greater margin.

@bozgp you beat me to it, they breed them tough in Texas they can survive temperatures twice that of the human body!

Let's all calm down first practice...But MM for the win I think and Dani can see his WC boat disappearing for ever.

Since he made me eat my own words in Qatar I am definitely not writing off Rossi. I'm sure come qualifying the times will be much closer together with this being the first race ever here.
