Qatar MotoGP: Espargaro tops first session of 2014

Aleix Espargaro has capitalised on his knowledge of the Qatar circuit gained from last week’s test absent of the factory riders to finish the first day of the 2014 season top of the timesheets, finishing nearly half a second clear of second placed Alvaro Bautista.

So Buell

This is what you said yesterday about Huewen and Ryder commentating

great to hear people talking about Moto GP that actually know something about it instead of some of the idiots on here

Hope you heard Huewen today when he mentioned that age was given as one of the reasons Rossi wasn't able to push on the Ducati. Something you, and Mario, told me I was talking shite about when I mentioned that others (not me) had said the same on this forum.

Don't choke on it boys.

 on Earth is going on! Factory Yamahas down in 9th and 11th! JL isn't even going to make it into qualifying 2 if he doesn't improve in the last session! Ducati must be laughing at the minute though and Lin Jarvis must be tearing his hair out, if he has any left after Jorge has finished with him! 

Even the factory Hondas arent doing great, not sure what is actually happening to them. I know that not many people are happy with the tyre but the Tech 3 bikes don't seem to be struggling and Bautista certainly isn't. Cannot wait for race day, going to make for a very interesting championship this year!

 Rossi and Lorenzo didn't test here so are going to be slow! Let's see what happens in the race! Will the open class soft tyres last full race distance? We will know come race day! I expect the next race the top boys will be back up there! If not they've clearly **** moto gp with new rules!
