Is it a wet track at vallelunga?
If so did the yamaha boys get their electronic suspension set up that they are this fast or are they still using the normal suspension?

I don't - I hope Max has signed for Aprilia - I haven't heard about that yet, but I expect BMW have a much bigger budget - they've been able to afford a fleet of test riders whereas Aprilia have used Alex Hofman and Robby Rolfo.

Good effort from Matej Smrz - faster than several people already on his first superbike ride.

Niels - I don't think the electronic suspension will make any significant difference to the practice times. I've read that Yamaha are experimenting with it in an effort to reduce tyre wear which they have sufferrred from at roughly two thirds race distance. The system alters the high speed rebound damping setting.
