Re: Valencia Test

OK, Vinales tops the time sheets? Rossi 4th and a crash, Zarco 2nd - aside from Zarco what was up with Yamaha during the race? Weird.

Valencia MotoGP test times - Tuesday (Final)
Final lap times from Tuesday's official post-race MotoGP test at Valencia.


The test offers the first chance for riders to appear with their 2018 teams; Jack Miller at Pramac Ducati, Scott Redding at Aprilia and Tito Rabat at Avintia Ducati, while rookies Franco Morbidelli, Takaaki Nakagami and Xavier Simeon are making their MotoGP debuts.

Thomas Luthi is missing the test due to foot injuries at Sepang and is replaced by HRC test rider Takumi Takahashi.

Testing, which took place from 10am to 5pm, concludes on Wednesday evening.

Valentino Rossi and Alvaro Bautista both walked away from big accidents just after midday, but Bautista - who took a big bang to his back after a possible technical issue - did not return.

Suzuki team-mates Andrea Iannone and Alex Rins did not test today due to a stomach virus...

Re: Valencia Test

Big get off for the day Abraham at the end dear me

It appears Yamaha’s choice is 16 frame 18 engine which sounded fine till Zarco did his time on a 17 bike!! And made the other pair look a little silly.

Herves interview was extraordinary Yamaha have already told him that if big girls blouse Rossi decides to run a team Tech3 are out of a job,hopefully KTM will turn up with a big cheque book for 19 and leave Yamaha sucking their thumb over Zarco

Interesting that MVDS manager admitting their preference was Miller and not Luthi but Honda wouldn’t pay!!!

Miller looks well good on the Pramac,hopefully HRC will be a little more prepared for next year instead of announcing that their new engine runs backwards just before the first GP in 16 and they haven’t done any testing and expect Marquez to get them out of the soft and smelly which he did.

Tomorrow’s bragging rights particularly in the afternoon should be fun.

Re: Valencia Test

What I forgot to mention because it is becoming the norm was another incredible save from Marquez at turn 10 just as crazy as all the others hes done.

Re: Valencia Test

Zarco on a test session on the 2017 M1 yamaha put in a faster time than Rossi and Vinales in qualifying just 5 days ago.

What does that tell you? Better setup after the race weekend? Advantage Zarco? Who knows...

Zarco says there was nothing bad about the new bike. And he used less energy riding it than the 2016 bike. Better on the brakes.


This guy is looking like a title contender next year...


I can forsee Rossi trying to figure out how Zarco rides the bike and perhaps try to emulate it. But at nearly 40yo, this might be his curtain call.


My question is who guided the development of the 2017 bike this season? Was it Rossi or Vinales or were the two completely separate?
The way Vinales acted this season and a comment he made about trusting himself in an interview at the end of the season, I tend to believe Yamaha has listened to Rossi more.

After the complete failure at Ducati (where it seems Ducati took the brunt of the blame), one wonders if Rossi is able to develop a modern motogp bike as well as when he did with Burgess pre Ducati.

In fairness to Rossi he suffered just like Stoner did with the fact that as incredible as it sounds the race shop who built the bike had no communication with the race team,when the race team said the bike didnt work the race shop said that was the teams fault!!!

When DallIna turned up his first priority was to bang heads together and sort the chaos out and after that then had to sort the bike out hes done a monumental job considering the mess Ducati were in.

For me im Intrigued to see what Yamaha do with Zarco in Herves interview yesterday he was saying Yamaha flatly refuse to run 3 factory bikes and always have done hence why Pol got a factory contract but no bike and KTM having the biggest cheque book of the lot and Zarco by 19 will have had 2 years riding around for next to nothing!!! its always fun watching the Japanese under cosh

It would be nice to see a European manufacturer win a championship.

Id say by no means impossible the important part is having rich backer Ducati have Marlborough and KTM Red Bull Aprillia just needs to find one I hear its a dam good bike the problem I see for the other manufactures as mentioned today on the Dorna feed Yamaha and Ducati adapted really quickly to the Magneti Marelli software that they all have to use Honda have struggled but now appear to have caught up particularly with the 18 bike that they debuted yesterday and today,and I see the top speed down the start and finish straight show that Honda have come with a fast engine for next year.

Re: Valencia Test

I reckon I speak for most Aussie MotoGP fans. We're pretty excited to see Jack right up there on the Ducati.

Looking forward to more reports from the Sepang test.

Unfortunately they've dropped Phillip Island from the testing schedule in favour of Thailand
