MotoGP » Jerez MotoGP test times - Monday (Final)


Fizzer09: Does anybody else think that Rossi and his team's celebrations the night before may have caused some delays in getting out on track for the test ?
I highly doubt that (...it's not like this is his first win since returning to Yamaha or something), but anything is possible. I just don't see Rossi ditching his professionalism to drink all night. Maybe he planned not to hit the track until later in the day. Maybe he just didn't really have anything of note to test, so why spend all day at the track after having had a good qualifying session, pole and a win!?!?!?

MotoGP » Scott Redding: I was worried


cont... We read the statements from both sides, and when you read the direct quotes from Redding and from Michelin, this basically seems like an adaptability issue caused by a powerful bike and a rider who couldn't adjust enough to get the result (unlike the front runners who were dealing with sliding, etc. as well).

MotoGP » Scott Redding: I was worried


tobecis: Its funny reading the articles on this subject very few actually read the reasons why he had so much trouble and I bet less than 2 of you actually went to Jerez and any other track, other than Silverstone because its in your own back yard!
. In fact, here are a few quotes from Redding... “...Ducati are struggling but the other guys manage to find a bit somewhere. “But you know some of the other guys were spinning a lot more [than me]... Then Michelin said... “There were some tears on Scott's tyre. Nothing any bigger than a coin and the wear on the tyre was no more extreme than we saw on Marc Marquez's winning tyre in Austin. As far as we are concerned there was no safety issue with the tyre at all and the amount of wear was expected after 27 laps in 40-plus degrees around this circuit on a soft tyre."
