Jorge Lorenzo quickest at end of Phillip Island tyre test

Jorge Lorenzo completed his domination of this week’s Bridgestone tyre test in Australia today by setting the fastest time in cool and windy conditions at Phillip Island this afternoon. The Spaniard set his best time of 1.29.068 on the same spec tyre that wreaked havoc during last October’s Phillip Island race. But Lorenzo revealed to MCN that the 2013-race spec tyre was...

So Dorna feel they have the right to answer to no-one and change the rules on the fly again.

First, introduce a new open class, for which it seems, they miss the glaringly large loophole that allows a factory team to enter as Open

It's known for some time that Ducati will enter as Open

So Dorna wait for them to announce it then decide to change the rules again by introducing a new class

Now they decide a factory team can't be Open, they're now Factory 2

Tell them that as Factory 2 they'll be penalised if they score an as yet undisclosed number of podiums by having their fuel limit and engine allocation number cut

What is this guy trying to do to Motogp? Sounds like he has caved in to complaints from both Honda and Yamaha, both of whom were unhappy at Ducati going Open.

So much for 'crushing' Honda...

 You don't need to pretend to be a biggot, it's obvious you are.

As for the rest of the SloMo club, the day they will admit that their experience of biking is limited, London's street will be paved of gold instead of dog poo.

Just a reminder: Australia tests were just that, tests, they (Yamaha Racing riders) didn't test the same tyres following the same workoload, the same day, and lap times means zilth.

FACT: Rossi was right there with Pedrosa in Sepang according to Lorenzo traditionally not a Yamaha track (really?), last year he was 3/10th to half a sec behind.

Another one, he (Rossi) doesn't complain of the brakes anymore and for those who read something else than the Sun on Thursday, the M1 have seen the necessary change to allow him (Rossi) to set it up to his liking, specifically chassis geometry and weight distribution.

Time will tell but two things are granted: Rossi will be closer to the front, Lorenzo will be in trouble as early as grip will be limited, as he always was for the reasons explained to us by those who knows, not by the sloMos that is.
