Indeed they do. Interesting/coincidental that they are within 1/1000 of a second of each other, at least no arguments in the garage as to who's the fastest

IF Nothing else the new ground effects look one hell of a lot better than the extruding inglets of last year. if they doubled as forced air intake the fim would be hard pressed to call them a component for the use of down force. They actually look like forced air units.

Bumpkin, years ago the steel trellis tube chassis was deemed to flexy and if enough steel added to stop flex the chassis became TOO stiff.(in high horsepower conditions) Ducati stated at one time they ran out of room to add flexable steel tubing . Hence the Monoque program was started. NOW the MV F4RC despite using asteel trellis steel tube chassis is the best handling motorcycle on the WSBK grid? This year MV is looking great considering age of unit.
Iam very excited for the 2017 season to start. SO many unknowns to be answered.

Okay, nobody else wanted to say it: Casey Stoner is faster than Jorge. Casey come back.

Jorge has not adapted as quickly to his new ride as Maverick and The Maniac did to theirs!! Sorry Jorge, it's mid-pack for you!

That isn't even the worst of it for Jorge.

Iannone is faster right now on the Suzuki.

Ducati dumped Iannone for Jorge and you can bet your last dollar the maniac is going to take it out on him on the track and perhaps doing so with a better bike too.

Jorge is in for a brutal year of taking hard passes from the most dangerous rider in MotoGP.

Yeah guys; one truncated test, and you have the whole season mapped out- why not save millions and hand out the trophies now!

This time last year Neal was telling us that Vale would walk the championship because of all the titles he had previously won on Michelins- remind me again, how did that go?

The truth is, it's the fact we DON'T KNOW how it will unfold that makes it so intriguing.

I have a feeling in my water that ol' Jorge might surprise a few people in Qatar!
Donsy and Donsy like this.

The older I get, the faster I was!
