1.41.5 on the harder tyre? For me that makes Cal quickest on race pace by over half a second maybe a bit more. Should walk it tomorrow with either tyre, but I'd go for the one that won't wear out.. call me old fashioned... Awesome pace again Cal.

hmm

If Rossi doesn't pick up the pace Yamaha needs to give Cal that seat. I know it's a shame but I'd rather remember Rossi for what he used to be, rather than this aging slow has been.

It had 'wasted seat' written all over it when he re-signed for Yamaha.

It'd be my choice too but I can't see it happening unless Vale himself says so. But I don't think his balls are big enough/ego small enough yet to accept it.

Works Yam?

I'll be surprised if he's given a fully factory Yam next season. They haven't got the money to fund another factory bike. He's either staying as he is or will be sitting on another manufacturer in 2014. It's a shame as he's really gelled with the bike, but it's a decision he's gonna have to make and either way, he won't be World Champion as the bikes unfortunately are not there for him.

Factory Huh

Why the hell would he want the factory bike, it obviosly doesn't work, if both Lorenzo and Rossi are strugling no disrespect to Cal but is the factory really that good.

Good luck with the tyre choice and keep flying the flag.

Rossi out Cal in

Never thought I would think this. But I hope it happens because if Rossi can't hook into a fast pace then he should leave to make way for a faster rider.

GO CAL !!!
