We can get a little bit too excited by testing times at times...when the test was about tyres. I hope they got the data for Bridgestone to produce a tyre that lasts race distance at Philip Island this year...

All this time, effort, manpower, money just to find a tyre to suit one track is totally wrong imo.
What happens if it rains all race weekend ?

I feel the same about asymetric tyres too.

While I'm on a rant, at any given race make them race on the tyre that they qualify on.

Pinched from MotoGP site about Rabat :-

"He ended the test impressively just 3.1s off Lorenzo's pace on his 600cc machine."

Will Bridgestone now be asking Dunlop for advice ?

Will the Texas Tornado be putting a 600cc engine in his bike ?

Will Honda want an investigation ?

Checking out the times it shows that despite his late quick lap, Lozzer was no quicker than Cal on the Ducati in their race sims.. I can't believe that the Ducati is really that good (especially as Cal hasn't had the bike long). Someone on here suggested that the Ducati is status quo so the Yam and Hondas are in someway slow. You have to wonder.

Rossi, however, was seriously quick in his long run, comparitively.

Looking at the lap times for the long runs -

Rossi did 13 laps around 1:29.8

Pedrosa 12 laps around the low 1:30s

Lorenzo 24 laps around 1:30.4

Crutchlow 17 laps around the same sort of times as Lorenzo

And Dovi didn't do a long run.

Interesting.....
