Bautista fastest on Sepang day one

The first day of the Sepang 2 MotoGP test has thrown a number of surprise packages to the fore, as Alvaro Bautista and the Espargaro brothers took advantage of unusual track conditions to finish the day one-two-three. Bautista spent most of the day inside the top ten, but a flying lap just minutes before the track closed, his sixtieth of sixty-one,...

That previous comment

is for deGrasse asking why the Tech3 guys are faster.

Druids, Rossi is also complaining because the bike is not setted yet for sliding like a Honda. On the other side, he knows he will adapt faster than Jorge so...

I agree with you on the severity of tyre issues... look what happened with Cases's - Bridgestone advantage... Common Paceypaceypaceypacey... common boy!...

But the truth is, Yamaha will never slide like a Honda

Those bikes have been build under two opposite mindset. Engine & raw power is the central point of the Honda when Yamaha has been working on corner speed and smooth power delivery for a decade now. Tyres issues are damn serious indeed & it could kill any chance for Lorenzo & Rossi's championship in the first half of the year.

 The Yamaha seamless does not require a change in engine specification, meaning it could arrive during the season without breaking the new development freeze rules.

“I want to say thank you to Yamaha as today was the first day we could use the new seamless gearbox, and the feeling is just amazing,” he added.

“We have a bit more power in every gear and it helps you in many different areas, for example, in the middle of the corner or with the anti-wheelie, it takes a lot of work away from the rider.

“Altogether it has been a really good day today and the feeling with the bike was just great.”

Nothing on the tyres...

 "could kill any chance for Lorenzo & Rossi's championship in the first half of the year".

Really? And since when does Rossi have an issue with sliding the bike? did you noticed he signed the second best lap <2/10th from Marquez so far?

It's a combination of chassis change, harsher power delivery and less grip on the edge, Rossi forte is braking and he also CAN tail-steer or power steer it, and to do so you don't need the same grip on the edge because you accelerate after picking the bike up a little.

The tyre issue affects Lorenzo a lot more, don't try to make them eqwual at this level, they are not.

Ah wee Beelzebub

Adaption you say. Yes indeed that is one of the key indicators.

I believe you need reminding on the past three seasons. Rossi 'I cannot change and ride it like Stoner' '2013 I needed to adapt to the bike more than I did'. Yet again - for fook knows how many times - the man himself knows more about his own fallibilities than any little yellow bedwetter like you or Quasimoto does.

 You really have a brain as thick and an anvil...

His riding style was characterized by skillfully controlled tire slides and a habit of putting his inside leg out before entering a corner. He is also highly respected for his race set-up and settings capability.

Who ever spoke of riding the M1 like Stoner? andspinandtwistandspinandtwistandspinandtwistandspinandtwistandspinandtwistandspinandtwistandspinandtwistandspinandtwistandspinandtwistandspinandtwistandspinandtwistandspinandtwist. Nostril roundabout...

But the RC, he certainly could.

Rossi.

LOL! Rossi haters are so full of it it come up to their eyes, makes them blind...

So Quasimoto

Could the Terrapin ride the Ducati like Stoner, or not? Results and laps times would certainly indicate not, just as the man himself admitted.

He's not dumb though is Rossi which is why he rated Lorenzo as the best rider out there 2013. I see you remain too spineless to offer an opinion on this.

Right.

 As if Stoner was sliding the Ducati the way he was sliding the RC...

Boy, instead of carefully calling people names after names you were to learn the fitst thing there is to know about bikes, this forum wouldn't be drawnig under tons of manures every time you write.

As for Stoner, if he left Ducati there is some good reasons Rossi figured for himself, because as opposed to you, he rides bikes, knows about them and is good at both.

But not even Stoner would be able to win in the Ducati when the Japs picked in... Stoner style was more agressive than Rossi's. On the decline of the Duke, Stoner lost the front more than ever, don't forget that.

Chapeau for Rossi recognizing that Stoner rode in a very effective way.

As I posted before JL recognized VR as the best of all times, THE LEGEND. I guess reading that hurted your eyes grandpa? As an ex-racer (wait, I have to finish laughin....) you should recognize talent right? (wait, laughin again...) You are pathetic, don't you realize that you have become the comedian of this forum? You and your tea cup pet are really entertaining. Thanks.

deGrasse, beside the seemless gearbox, I believe Tech3 riders were using the softer tyres... that would make a big difference on time / lap.
