Ducati getting closer is good to see. Aleix Espergaro is a giant among men, but I'm pretty sure he'll be fighting with the Aspar boys come race day.

I can´t take it anymore to see Vale linger around at the 4th spot...even though he is ahead of Jorge...This is going to be a tough season once again for the Yamaha folks. Half a second difference to MM93 will be quite an obstacle to overcome.

only due to fuel yam is off pace. honda with way more money, R&D obvious is better in fuel consumption. we seen last year Jorge won most races. So give the riders back the 1 litre and enjoy a real fighting year. if not? it will be a walk in the park for honda. my thought is its gonna be a CRAP 2014. If Yamaha can't get the grips on the consumption in my eyes its gonna be a hollow title at the end of the year.

Give back the 1 litre and next year introduce MM ecu for all and lets race once again!!!

Well here is an option: put Aleix on the Factory Yam of Valentino and see where he a ends up. Maybe this could be their anti-Marquez weapon. I know, I know, not realistic, but one may fantasize a little bit specially at this stage. Remember... this is only testing and it has just begun.

... not put him on Jorge's if you want to base it on 2 days testing?

Hayden's about one second faster than yesterday, around half a second quicker than his teammate. But taking Bautista as a reference, Hayden is still about 1.5 sec slower than the slowest RC213. If the bike is really lacking as much power, as Hayden told Crash.net, then I don't think Honda will just sit still and watch. They're not gonna be embarrassed like that.

But we'll see what happens in Doha.

Apart from that: Iannone's still intriguing me. Dovi and Cal got considerably closer to him, but that's still one strong performance. Especially for a guy in his second year, who finished last season with a nasty shoulder injury.

why everybody never says anything good about Bradley, only bad stuff - like yesterday. Today he is breathing down Jorge's neck. Maybe, just maybe bye halfway the season, Pol swallows his pride and ego and asks
Bradley how the hell he is so fast on the same bike ...

With Aleix Espargaro going so well on an open M1, Val and Jorge might be casting an envious gaze toward the NGM pit box. Aleix is rockin' this test!
