You see a rain interrupted, incomplete test as a true sign of how fast they all are... nobody went as fast as they could go... I think Rossi, Pedrosa & Lorenzo will all prove they are faster... odd but you're entitled to your opinion.
"See how you fail to mention he was in-front of his team mate on the same bike"
Yes... the guy he should be battling with... unremarkable, hence the lack of a remark... or do you think it's surprising? Cal's the guy they both should be leaving in their wake. Between them they have 13 GP titles!
"All this means is that Rossi IS going to be up the sharp end along with 4 maybe 5 others"
All what means?... speculation means nothing... a completed test means little... a half finished test means even less... as I said, wait for the 1st race to experience Rossi's true pace... unless you're afraid this is as good as it gets & you're making the most of it while it lasts? Let's hope not eh? Thankfully we don't have to wait long.
CCB - "Cals been at the front end of qualifying every round for the last 12 months"
Erm... not every round but I take your point... & each time it's been a remarkable event... which is why I mention it as being as significant as Rossi leading... which, as you can tell, I don't regard to be that significant in what was an interrupted, incomplete test.
Rossi's been either just in front or just behind Cal in each test on the Yamaha... so either JL & DP have suddenly got worse (unlikely), Rossi & Cal have both suddenly got better (possible), or JL & DP didn't put in fast laps (most likely)... not that any of them put in the fastest laps they were capable of... in my opinion.
