Valentino Rossi unveils new Ducati GP12

Testing...

Well, it's early days but Rossi's within 2 secs of the 800cc pace & 2nd fastest at the moment... the signs are good but I'll wait till the end of the day before I read too much into it when hopefully there'll be a proper report... JL is the only one of the big guns to put in a fast lap so far.

I reckon Rossi will finish 7th with Hayden right up his rear.

More...

2 Yams lead the timesheets but still off 800 pace... a while to go yet... Rumours that Stoner's out for the day look true as he's only completed 4 early laps.

Is it too early or is there a lack of marlboro colours on the Duc.

They say that externally it is the same but the vents on the side of the bike have changed. Instead of the 2 large vertical vents these have no become four, with 2 further doen and a venturi near the rear of the fairing. it also looks like the fairing is fully enclosed around the frame. The Gp11 had gaps along the frame fairing line.

Never the best looking bike on the grid. I thought pre season most bikes appeared in black for testing?

Loprenzon quick off the blocks...

Childish nonsense

Can we try something new for 2012?

Can we please act like adults and stop the pathetic nonsense like the comment below? I'm all for fans supporting their favourites, but this just ruins the comments feature.

Grow up, eh?
