MotoGP testing starts at Brno

The second and final day of in-season MotoGP testing is underway at Brno in the Czech Republic.

As of the end of the third hour, Brno race winner and MotoGP title leader Jorge Lorenzo is fastest with a lap of 1min 56.269sec (from 21 laps), which is three tenths under Dani Pedrosa's pole time from the race weekend.

Repsol Honda rider Pedrosa is second fastest to Lorenzo so far at the test, but a full 1.155sec slower.

Casey Stoner, third in the race for Ducati, is also third on the timesheets, 1.357sec behind Lorenzo.

Lorenzo's Fiat Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi, who announced a move to Ducati last night, is eighth.

Hiroshi Aoyama, missing from MotoGP since fracturing a vertebra at Silverstone, has completed 31 laps with a best of 1min 59.476sec.

That is slightly quicker than his replacement at Interwetten Honda, Alex de Angelis, managed in the race.

All MotoGP manufacturers have brought new parts to try at the test.

So, now that Rossi isn't performing it must be a conspiracy against him by Yamaha. What happened to that special talent that he has to make anything go fast ?, surely the current M1 isn't a total dog ?, why can't Rossi pull that magic rabbit out of his hat and make the best with what he has, after all he made the 2004 M1, which was noted by all to be a dog of dogs , go fast, and beat ALL opposition. It really grates to hear VR fan boys blame "the bike" for being off the pace. Pathetic. Just accept that the rider can also be blamed for lack of results.
