Sorry, I thought that was implied.

No, it will still be in the offices and on the ledgers, the adv forum talking points will just be slightly different.

Not sure who should be more embarrassed, Honda who's open bike is really slow or Yamaha who's open bike (motor?) is beating some of their factory bikes?!

link to results for moto2 test in jerez. Guessing this was Herrin's first time at this track. His ranking didn't change much but he dropped decent time over the course of the day. Went from being 3s down from top guy in the first session to about 1.3s in the last session. Not sure where his teammate was for the 3rd session.

I can't remember, nor have I looked were these times with their actual motors? I know some teams used hopped up motors and others use stockers during preseason testing.
Knowing Sam Lowes is talented, but surprised how close to the top he has been in testing. I wonder if he has a "hot" motor.

I thought the engines were sealed from Honda.

For racing, not for testing.

A maturing Lorenzo. His press speak is impressive.

The MotoGP misses Casey Stoner. Did you remain in touch?
"Not that much. Let's say it happens we get in touch. The last year he came to the Australia GP and we could speak at length, but it's not as we are talking every week".


Translation: Casey who?

I know it won't happen but I am really hoping for an upset this year. With all the rules changing, it seems to me as though MotoGP is trying to produce a result, not let the guys race. To bad Ducati didn't hold their cards closer to the vest. If they would have told dovi and cal to lap a half second back they would have been able to go into this season with a shot it hell of winning.

The Factory 2 resolution still isn't official, so anything could happen, yet.

Ducati will get to do everything they planned on doing with the Open Class right up to the point where they start earning multiple podiums or win a race.

Even at that point, the restrictions are not severe. It also removes them a step from the independent teams running Open Class, as it should be.
