Not surprising to see Lorenzo back at the top of the timesheets. Nice to see that Cal is on the pace too. The others are not far off either.

Given that the tyre issue was how long they last, it's a pity to see that no-one was out for more than a few laps at a time, so we're no closer to knowing if Bridgestone has any answers.

asefi: Was the Ducati software really that bad? Yikes!

Don't forget, the open class has other variables too. 4 liters extra full and the possibility to keep developing the engine.

This is only testing.Extra fuel is for the race,ideal for powerfull Ducati engine.Regarding software,Open could be limited only in race distance,we will see about that.

The Ducati software is apparently better than the Open version. Ducati has generally been more competitive at Philip Island, well, at least with Stoner riding it. Nicky made the podium there too.

It could also be that the tyres are better suited to the Ducati, since team Yamaha don't like them.

riders were requested to run 6 laps on 1 tyre,there were many different constructions of tyres,so today the preferred tyres will be short listed and there will be longer runs tomorrow and maybe race-sim.s on the day after.
