Under "Open" rules, "contracted riders" can test anywhere (subject to tire supply restrictions), provided its not less than 14 days before a race at that venue. Ducati will be testing at Mugello before Lemans.

Is the front brake overheating problem related only to Brembo? Is there anyone else apart Bautista on Nissin brakes (Production Racer Hondas maybe)?

Eek Cal not a happy camper

Did anyone else notice how upset Cal Crutchlow was in his Jarez post race interview posted on MGP.com? Even during the pre-race interview he seemed to be trying to hold the company line but he was obviously miffed after the race. Comments such as "not acceptable" "results just not there" "complete disaster" "go away and re-think the rest of the year" and "I've yet to finish a race without a mechanical problem" are pretty strong words even for a guy like Cal who tends to speak frankly. He still was able to compliment Dovi on his finish but I think Cal is experiencing some serious discontent. I know several here will be trying to resist the old "I told you so....."

He had that same "look" Nicky did when he was driving that truck.

Until Cal is beating Dovi he should watch his tongue.

right. wonder if cal had a good attorney read his contract before he signed, there's prob. a nice clause in there to get fired if duc doesn't like some words/actions. knew what they were getting w/him

Cal bitching about riding the Red Nasty who'd a thunk it? Oh he bitched about riding Tre' Crap, he won't be happy until he is on one of the Big 4 and that ain't gonna happen. If by some miracle it did would the ghost's of Spies problems raise their ugly heads?

Yeah, not sure if I admire this as a honest interview or if I should dislike it as moaning. He makes some valid points but he sure isn't being very political. Which I like... maybe.

Bullshit. I think Ducati should be shamed as often as possible for their inability, for years, to get the bike right.
