7 - The number of CRTs using the standard Magneti Marelli ECU electronics system at the second test.

0.042 - The closest gap between any two team-mates at the second test. de Puniet just pipped fellow Aspar rider Aleix Espargaro to the fastest CRT time.

5.031 - The number of seconds covering all 28 riders by the end of the test, from Lorenzo to Bryan Staring. At the first test the margin had been 5.870s.

1.368 - The difference between the quickest Sepang II lap by a Ducati rider, Andrea Dovizioso, and the fastest overall lap time. At the first test the difference had been 2.010s.

1,825 - The number of days since a British rider was so highly placed at any one day of official testing, when all full-time riders were present. Cal Crutchlow was third fastest on day two at Sepang II, the best by a Brit since James Toseland's second place on the last day of the Qatar test prior to the opening round in 2008.

The old site layout was perfect...though you don't always realize it until you change it. It may have looked a bit dated, but when something is done correctly from the start it's next to impossible to make it better. Crash has clearly taken a step back with the way news and comments are presented in the updated layout.
