All Yamaha riders not open class complained about 20 litters of fuel and how it had changed the bike, they are clearly behind the Hondas in that aspect and all looked worried, Lorenzo's confidence is not there, and looked visible upset. I was kinda hoping for a show down but again stupid rules handicap some while favors others.
Honda looked worryingly fast, it might even be an early wrap up of the title for MM this year. :(

Dear Mr Lorenzo, further to the recent rumours that you are open to talk with any manufacturers about 2015 season and therefor asking for a lot more money rather than being offered a lot more money... we have decided to bury our differences with Mr Rossi properly and give him our full support this season rather than you. Please find enclosed the number 2 bike and all of its questionable parts. I hope you understand our full backing of the 9 times world champion and dont take this to heart too much. I'm sure Cal is rite...he would welcome you at Ducati if you see fit to join them next year. Please lets take this moment to all welcome Mr Rossi back to HIS properly developed bike...p's im sorry if you cant ride it, but it will be faster than your heap of **** you er un-developed over the last few seasons.

Yours sweetly

Yamaha HQ

I will have a pint of what Paolino has been drinking!

That heap of **** you referred to won 8 races last year with Mr Lorenzo in the saddle.
Or were you watching a different championship to the one the rest of us were watching?

Calm down all....

This is testing. The whole idea is to sort out the issues or any issues found on the new steed!!!

One fan on here is already crowning MM but it is way too early for that. Do not get me wrong, I believe MM will be the main protagonist this year as well but I am too well aware of all the possibilities!! Injury, an invigorated Pedrosa and a persistent and consistent JL. Rossi is the unknown quantity this year with all his changes and the changes to the Yamaha.

Will the yamaha suit Rossi or not?...he was fast in Qatar last year! Personally, I thought he could have won that race if he hadn't tripped in the first corner. I believe VR will win a couple races this year but I am unsure about a full up title attack. Rossi is my favorite rider so I hope I am wrong about a title shot.

I think we are all too hung up on one fast lap time....... This is a test! so riders can sort out their machines. They all have a lot of work and set up solutions to try in concert with the new rules and the new machines that engineer have developed over the winter. Not all winter solutions work well on track and we have seen factories go back to old frames etc.

Basically we nee to chill out and just watch/appreciate the test. Usually what I look out for is the race simulations like the ones Lorenzo crippled the field with last year when he was racking up consecutive laps at or around the lap record.... I think this tells the tale because we could hear the worry in every ones voice.

All respect to MM (and I despise what ifs) but I believe that had JL season gone injury free last year we would be singing a different tune. PS MM is due what he earned but JL did not let his fans down!!
