I really hope Rossi will be more competitive and comfortable this season with Bridgstone.

I'd say it was positive that he finished second, as it was his first time on the Bridgestone rains. Wait until he's had a chance to practice on the wets! I think he was less than a second off.

18.-Niccolò Canepa (ITA) Ducati Test -1'57.453
19.-Toni Elias (SPA) Alice Team -1'57.698
Conditions Damp/Wet.

What this doesn't tell you is that Stoner only did 9 laps TOTAL.
He did 5 early on in the session went top and was nearly 3 seconds quicker than anybody else.
As the track dried out everybody got closer with Rossi setting his FL with time for only one lap remaining but still one and a quarter seconds adrift.
Stoner just sat in the pits watching the monitor the whole time.
Eventually he came out to do 4 more laps, probably to please the sponsors !!

Stoner was F****** AWESOME.
Rossi was superb, first time on Bridgestone wets apart from a brief session in the morning.
Hayden was top Michelin and trying hard.
Dovi was Dovi

Uh- Huh..........NICKY!!!! Boy is putting in the wrok that is for sure. And as I said before, seems Casey adn the Duc team can;t make the bike work in the dry. Only ten seconds slower than his BMW winning wet lap. Makes you wonder. Could there be a Championship curse for everyone but Rossi?
I'll bet Hopper is missing that 'Zuki now. Shame to waste all the time he spent developing teh Suzuki, and now to pretty much start over with Kawi must really suck. Gonna be a great season with the new guys filling most of the top half of the time sheets so far. Come on Qatar!!!!!!!

Colin didn't run today

I'm sure he's trying to think of the future and solidify himself with Kawi... I agree though, he seemed to do a good job developing the bike and has to start over.

I just don't buy the "Hopper is the next best thing" thing.

Come on Nicky!
