Qatar MotoGP: Valentino Rossi worried ahead of season opener

Valentino Rossi said a lack of rear grip with his new Ducati GP12 machine was a big cause for concern after he ended the opening practice session of 2012 at the floodlit Losail International Circuit in Qatar with the 10th best time. The nine-times world champion set a best time of 1.57.914 to finish only third quickest Ducati rider as the...

Sorry But NO.

        Only 2 rider`s used the softer option rear tyre,Cal for the entire session and Nicky for the last couple of lap`s. So the rider`s who will gain upto 7 tenth`s,with the softer tyre will be the rest of `em.Although Cal will probably make a couple of tenth`s,on a new`un. And if the track has cleaned up they will all find another one and a half second`s.Only 1 practice gone so early day`s    today will tell the true story.  I believe some of the lower leaderboard guy`s also used the softer version,{ not Rossi },not that it make`s much difference.The top runner`s will be the usual suspect`s.

Buel

Stoner used the hard tyre all session  -  that seems to be the information from Bridgestone

I was watching it and there was no white band on Stoner's rear tyre at the end of the session which is when he set his fastest laps.

No white band = hard tyre

Lorenzo's if I recall had a white band = soft tyre. Spies too I think.

Tyres...

"For Jorge Lorenzo, his biggest problem was in tearing up the tires. Lorenzo had run the softer of the rear compounds, and had found that the tires had started overheating after about four laps"

MM says JL was running soft rear.

@ Nostro I was merely channeling the ghost of Wosideg rather than being facetious. Someone has to put forward the real race fans view, no?

What do you mean may be right. It was a hard tyre, what is there to argue about.

Hi, Wosideg here, i would like to inform you that

my idol is going to participate in the first round of the Blancpain Endurance Series with his trusted friend Uccio Salucci.

"We decided at the last minute to take part in this round, and doing it together with my friend Uccio will certainly be a lot of fun," Rossi said.
