Hopefully...but do not get carried away based on the tests. Some teams may not be showing their cards yet. I say if he ends up 3rd or 4th in both dry races, that will be a terrific start of the season for Team Green.

I think the teams know more than we do, and from what I can see, Provec have put a lot of work into making Tom's tyres last. I think the ride by wire and the new management will also help there.

All speculation until we see the first race, but here's hoping for the best!!!

If we could rely on this test as a true reflection of everyone's capabilities for the race, then yes. Wouldn't it be great if Sykes and Lascorz ran near the front next weekend? Now that would throw a cat among the pigeons and improve Kawasaki's reputation!

I agree, but I do think (Largely thanks to Sykes' achievements) that Kawasaki's rep has increased (However mildly), let's hope him and Joan can blow it through the roof.

And a definite cat amongst the pigeons if it happens!!!
