some posters need to stop being captivated by his cheeky smile! and wake up up to reality!!!
Rea has already tested at Aragon, 62 laps according to the BBC "www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/motogp/19496961"
So he has track knowledge and at least a good base setup, yet on the fastest factory bike, he is a second behind Pedrosa, who Stoner routinely out qualifies.
The last second or so worth of pace really demonstrates the difference between a world class rider and a merely good one. Ask any racer, the last few tenths are the hardest to come by, even Toseland qualified 6th at his first MotoGP race on a Tech 3 Yam, and whilst good he was never in Stoner / Lorenzo's league.
