Those vents on the rear section, do they have downforce fins inside them?

Who will top the test?

Who will surprise? Who will underwhelm?

Casey Stoner has done only four laps...and has already done an incredible 2:01.1! His talent is otherworldly.

P1 to P5 all used a soft tyre for fast lap.
Glad to finally see moto gp back even though it's only testing.

Anyone else think they puig'ed in an upgrade for the Danbot? Half second clear of the field. If I were Marc I'd be looking for a new ride soon.

Early impressions.

The Ducatis look very strong. Miller is a surprise. JL seems to be riding well.

Rossi was the fastest on the hard tyre.

Pol on the KTM was fast.

The quote from Dall'Igna speaking about the GP18:

“In MotoGP č difficile sentire un beneficio cosė chiaramente, per questo sono stupito.”

"In MotoGP it's difficult to see such a clear improvement, and I'm shocked for this reason."

What Ducati test rider "running in 20th" are you talking about?

Sylvain Guintoli is 20th on a GSX-RR Suzuki.

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

Dovi, Rossi and Marquez all inside 1:59.
2 pages of Stoner fellation over a 2:01 and not much discussion about the above.

I would love to see Stoner make a comeback just so that his overrated ass be put in its rightful place by the actual cream of the crop.
