Hmm; now Stoner missed Jerez last year so he's only done 49 laps of testing there in the last 5 months, while Rossi has done 158 and Lorenzo, 208. Stoner's best time came on his 40th lap; Rossi's on his 61st, Lorenzo's on his 95th.

I'm glad to see someone else leading the day's results because, seriously, without obvious good competition any rider (and as importantly, his team) is going to become just a tad complacent and for we fans it becomes downright boring. As an Aussie, though, it's pretty chuffing to see the two Skippys in the first four... if Vermuelen can keep on holding good speed in the dry he may get the points this year that he ought to be capable of achieving. Hopefully Suzuki is feeling good about scraping the bottom of the piggy bank to keep the team competitive.
