Rossi managed 12 laps of 60 in the 2:01s.

But he was pitting every few laps it appears from the time sheet, presumably trying different set-ups, and often would pull a 2:01 after a couple of laps and then head back in.

All were mid-high 2:01s except for his final two outings, when he got down to 2:01.3, and then out again for consecutively 2:01.1 and 2:01.0.

Lorenzo in his race simulation put in 16 laps consecutively in the 2:01s, and four of those were low 2:01s, along with half a dozen others through the day.

Hard to know what to conclude but Rossi was quoted thus on

"Now this is the reality. The first three guys are very fast - Lorenzo and Pedrosa, but also Marquez - and it looks like we need to improve a bit."
