MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Wednesday (Final)


ZeFrenchAngle:
TrueFan: I can't understand why Gigi announced that Stoner won't test in Australia. I look forward to hearing the explanation. Especially since he was the fastest Ducati...
Easy one. ...(some speculative opinion on what might be the reason)... Good management.
That's why I'd like to hear Gigi explain it. It's quite possible that Stoner made the call, because (a) in his own country, the attention would probably be more focussed on him, OR (b) he just wants a more low kety role now that he's shown that he's still "got it". But this is speculative too. They might give us the PR story regardless, but I"d like to hear SOME explanation from the powers that be...

MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Wednesday (Final)


Lorenzo is the man. The five time world champion has a point to make indeed. He is laying down the gauntlet to his team mate, and every other potential rival. They should be worried, because he is seriously fast. I can't understand why Gigi announced that Stoner won't test in Australia. I look forward to hearing the explanation. Especially since he was the fastest Ducati...

MotoGP » Rossi hoping for top speed parity


Agree with Ammar. I was about to say something very similar. Lorenzo has shown that there's not much wrong with the Yamaha. Rossi needs to refine his riding style to accommodate all the (S/W and tyre) changes. It's obvious that the Yamaha is still a sweet handling package with plenty of speed. Honda cranked up the horsepower and screwed up the rideablity. Surely he doesn't want Yamaha to make the same mistake?

MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Wednesday (3pm)


Stoner has done a handful of laps, and his times keep falling. He pitted before Rossi and Marquez did a faster time than his...and then the rain came. Lorenzo is once again faster than everyone else... Rossi put in a few good laps, so he might be coming to terms with the changes, but is not on Lorenzo's pace. Meanwhile, Dani appears to be having a world of problems with that Honda. Not a good sign for them.

MotoGP » Baz 'fortunate' to walk away from horror accident


Amazing to walk away from a high speed off like that, he'll obviously need a new set of leathers... Some reports are saying that they were running a lower pressure in that tyre. It surprises me that they'd do that. Lower pressure means more carcass flex. More flex means internal friction and heat buildup. It can potentially lead to structural fatigue. I'm sure whatever went wrong, it will all come out in the analysis. Loris was very lucky today.

MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Tuesday (Final)


Stoner's time is impressive. That's on a hard tyre, and he's less than a tenth behind Rossi, three tenths behind Marquez and half a tenth behind Iannone. Only Lorenzo has the legs on him, nearly a second to the good. Such a waste of talent. I'm interested to learn what actually happened in the Baz incident. His leathers looked pretty second hand, but otherwise he seemed pretty good....

MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Tuesday (3pm)


Sepang testing always has the bulk of the fast times in the morning before the heat rolls in, and sometimes late in the day if the temp drops off enough (which it doesn't always do). It is also susceptible to the 4pm tropical deluge too... Still, I am always happy to see the top of the timesheets populated with Ducatis...and yes, Tomco, hats off to Hector Barbera indeed, on the 14.2! I couldn't agree more. Pretty fair effort from Stoner too, in 11th after not racing and (presumably) less than his formerly rigerous off-season training.
