no surprise cal is slower on the ducati. I hope he gets faster.

What a marketing move honda did with the rcv. Show casey doing 1/10 slower on it to move it off the showroom floor, then when it comes time to show it off with hayden its way down the order. I know its early but Hayden and reddings team should get their money back if the bike doesnt improve.

@ Destro- yeah if you want your bike to look good then Stoner makes a good test rider.

Scott is still recovering from his injury though, I'd expect him to be a fair bit faster otherwise.

Hayden is slotted between the prototypes and CRT's on the first day. They have zero data for even a base setup unlike the others so that isn't bad start. They have a lot of work to do to dial these bikes in and it won't be easy with limited testing.

Casey was .3 faster on the prototype but was it one of the days he tested in poor weather? Was it a soft tire vs. hard tire? Is impressive but we already knew Nicky isn't Casey, they were team mates on the same machinery so not much expectation there.

I dare say all the worst Rossi fans (by which I mean those ones who have enjoyed the hobby of Trolling on anyone else at EVERY opportunity for YEARS) will be deeply hidden under some dark wide bridges tonight.

What, that loser Smith who doesn't deserve to shine Vale's boots has done WHAT?

Yup - Lapped quicker than VR while on a Satellite T3!

That HAS to be a big well done to Smith, cos I'm not going to rubbish Rossi here - the kid done GOOD.

Shan't deny the thought of all the angst being suffered by a LOT of Vale's worst Trolls doesn't make me smile though!

Smith faster than Rossi-quite a scalp.
Grand Prix is coming to look feel and smell like Formula One, which is to say smells bad,
Next years champion will be a small Spanish chap, place your bets now.
The top guys are not aliens, they simply have the best kit.
Honda and Dorna have strangled the goose..
