In case you guys didn't know, the best Ducati time (by Iannone) was on the open class Ducati.

There is a picture at the official MotoGP website, just click on latest photos.
The rear looks almost as the one from 2007, 08 and early 09. Thank god they got rid of that ugly oval looking rear part.

Satellite bikes are usually inferior to their factory bikes, but we consistently see satellite ducati looking better than factory ducati...

Marc means business,, better version of young Rossi has arrived for sure...

I know that we are all excited....loooong winter and all but it is too early to start crowning anyone.

Anyhow good showing from Aleix Esparago. Pol will need time. Expected Bradley to be a little bit more on it but he is a slow starter anyway. Production Honda's off to a slow start but no one really got to put that bike through its paces yet with control ECU...truthfully I expect the Honda to be better mid season when every one gets data and into their stride.

Pedrosa...I thought would be faster from the off based on last year etc but the next 2 days will tell the story better!! MM has been quick from the jump in every test and every practice etc so really no surprise there and he is the reigning champion!! to say the least!! Good stuff from Rossi...lets see how it pans out on Thursday..

I'm really happy for Aleix... but I'd bet my mortgage that Honda will improve the customer bike to address the deficit to the M1 powered bikes (and prob even go one better) if things remain the same after the first race.
