Sepang test: Stoner leads day two

MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner took to the Sepang circuit for the first time today after a back problem forced him to sit out yesterday's session, and immediately inserted his dominance by setting the fastest time of the test. The Aussie posted a best time of 2:00.895 over a 23 lap run, 0.762secs faster than yesterday's fastest time set by Jorge...

Revz

 you need to look at stats...and thats where the stoner fans get emotional.

Try again. Stoners stats are improving therefore no emotion other than happiness, deep joy and a general sense of well-being. Someone else's stats aren't. That'll be where the emotion lies.

Awesome Rosssome

 

Day 2, from Visordown: The GOAT' own words "On the other hand, as is normal with a brand-new bike like the GP12, as we progress with our tests we also find other details that can’t be addressed with setup alone and that will therefore have to be perfected in the coming weeks.

"We had already identified those areas yesterday, acceleration and electronics, and we confirmed the progress made with the front end. Honda and Yamaha have been working on their bikes for a year, while we’ve just had two days, which makes our job particularly challenging, but we already knew that as well.

"Tomorrow will be important as well because we’ll be able to make an overall assessment of the three days, and we’ll have a clearer idea of where we stand compared to the others. If we manage to stay under one second from the top, I’ll be happy.”

For the second day of testing the Ducati team concentrated on creating a base setting for the brand new Desmosedici GP12, along with assessing new parts for the 1000cc machine.

This bike is showing so much potential and I am glad that Rossi and Co have found the lil front end shit pig and exorcised it to latrine 27.

Is there anyone out there that can explain the testing rules and if there is a limitation to stop Ducati from packing up tomorrow or can they continue with more testing after tomorrow?

Thanks Wosideg

so as long as the are within the test limits of tyres, Ducati can book Mugello and go testing and not wait till official test dates from Motogp and the test rider can be Rossi or Nicky themselves.

COSTLY...

        Last year we had 3 Work`s team Honda`s and Simo,who was also supported via the factory.2012 and now we are down to 2 Work`s Honda`s,albeit 1000`s,and they are having to spend more this year.This is because the 800`s were pretty much the same machine`s used in 2010.Mean-while in skint Italy,Ducati have undoubtedly,spent all their sponsorship money plus a considerable amount of their own.     So when a certain Mr.Rossi say`s,{ bitches },about the biggest m`cycle company spending so much, in 2011,me think`s maybe he`s got that arse about face,{ one of his favourite`s I believe },and a fave of quite a few on here.

rawdwag......... The summarised version without too much detail: Motomatters: "While at Ducati, Casey Stoner said that even when he had identical setups on his two Desmosedicis, they would never feel exactly the same".....identical steel trellis chassis could be large - as much as 15% From BSN: "When we had the carbon frame they already had an aluminium one they were testing. Everyone is saying bad things about the carbon fibre but you didn't ride the trellis frame" 2007 1st 2008 2nd (23 victories of Stoner with Ducati, 16 came in 2007 and 2008. 4 wins in 2009, and 3 in 2010) Why would Ducati change the chassis if the rider was happy with it for fun? Steel trellis is one of THE traditions at Ducati. Motogp.com and wikipedia: "Introduced in 2009 "A distinctive feature of GP9 is its carbon fibre chassis" 2009 4th 2010 4th...leaves. From BSN: "Ducati's problem isn't with the carbon fibre frame and then went on to not say what he thinks is holding Valentino Rossi up".......? Wikpedia: "Dorna and the FIM announced that a control tyre would be imposed on MotoGP for the 2009 season and Michelin did not enter a bid. Cycleworld: In past years (before 2009), the tire company would have been involved and produced specific tires to suit the Ducati. Now, the bike must be designed and evolve to suit the tires rather than the other way around. Motormatters Paraphrased: Bridgestones, have an incredibly stiff carcass, Outside of their optimal temperature range, they are much less forgiving...the Ducati is a prime candidate Yamaha and Honda appear to have adapted to much more quickly than Ducati has. Seems pretty clear to me........Fair dincum, a tinny for Stacey in the Dunny and no clue how to develop a bike. As for the photo "where the tire smokin" a la melandri 2 wheel slide on the Kawasaki 990. They're not called stone tires for nothinks. Rossi is not my hero however I think as an all round sportsman and development rider with 9 world titles he is better than Stacey. As of now Lorenzo's record is also better. Stacey id good though.
