Today is almost over. It was very hot and not ideal for fast laps this afternoon.

Pedrosa and Lorenzo both set their fast laps on their 4th laps out this AM.

Good point.

If it remains unchanged, the gap between Jorge and Vale is just 0.113....

Ben tells why he didn't ride today and gives his first impressions of the Duc.

And probably not complaining at all about getting looked past for the factory Duc, I'd bet! Good to see him running strong.

MM looked damn impressive - the kid definitely looked like he's got the brass to to take over for Casey.

I thought it was interesting that Suzuki was hanging out this week at the track, and that Dorna said they are more than welcome back...as long as they come in with an existing team. Pramac, anyone?? Sure would explain Big Ben agreeing to fight with that tractor for a season.

I will hold off commenting too negatively on the AudCati times until they actually introduce the latest version .

I hope they can improve a lot and get Nicky back in the hunt.

Stoner did a 1:59.6 in 2011. Sepang 1, day 3.

Ducati got so much bad publicity from the "dream marriage", that turned sour. Even more now, when everyone can see, that it was the bike, that held Rossi back.

And in that respect, I am totally amazed, that they changed nothing. Tells you something, just how screwed they are.

Pol Esparago was only 0.4 sec behind Dovi, on a crt!


Four wheels good, two wheels better

I will second that opinion. Probably not the championship this year but I believe Dani and Lorenzo are going to be pissed more than once this year..... Just saying!!!

I say that will not happen unless Dani or Lorenzo crash or have a tire or mechanical failure...
