That's true. It's also true that Rossi finished 7seconds ahead of Lorenzo, on the Ducati in the dry. I'd like to see Dovi or Nicky do that this Sunday.

i can't remember, probably Jlo had some problems (tyres, setup?) because last year in wet he was almost 10 sec. ahead of Rossi.

Lots of Brits on here drawing attention to absolutely anything else happening in MotoGP ... just to avoid the elephant in the room ...

Bradley is on Japanese machinery, maybe someone needs to explain the concept of falling on ones sword to the boy.

Duc riders made a good start but don't get carried away, because they had very good results here in past two seasons with Rossi, so setup won't be a bigger problem for them in this round... May be the hard and late braker's genes playing into the bike? But Real measure of their work and expected problem solving will be revealed in catalunya...

MM will surely climb few positions in the further sessions,, 7th is not bad when every others ahead of him feel they are stronger in this round...

Wish Rossi don't slip down few places when all go for hot laps in qualifying...

re: "this was only FP1 and there is a lot more to do before the race."

paraphrasing john paul, marquez strikes a pose in france like napolean, sticks his hand across to his half zipped leathers and proclaims...

"i have not yet begun to MARAUD...!"

Eurosport ain't exactly helping their cause by not showing practice live but showing it at 8:30 tonight.

They'd rather show cycling and tennis all day.

Some home of motorbikes.

Looks like Marc is a one-track-wonder (Austin track). It's not just that it was a new track, it was the overly-wide Tilke-designed track that let him have his erratic riding lines and not be punished for it. European tracks are narrower and require more precise riding.
