That's a pretty serious statement of intent by Sete and Ducati! Very fast.

Rossi 2 seconds slower than Edwards? Hrmm... More work needed? or sandbagging?

I think he'll have more important things on his mind and won't be taking any risks testing until after the season is over ...

Colin has nearly always been towards the front on 4th day of practice ( I know this is different, but essentially it is the 4th day running at the same track), - he has also been a very consistent qualifier all year, - he won the first BMW and is in 2nd place for the 2nd one.



Sete? If Marco wants his seat he is out looking for a job, but again he is a quick qualifier, - it is race distance that has proved the problem.

It's not that I don't like Colin, I think he is a good and brave rider, Assen showed that.
Sadly I said from the beginning "What are they doing giving a seat to Sete".
History has shown I was not wrong, he has messed both Loris and Ducati's year up.
Marco would be a good choice of replacement as he is not fazed by Rossi, an all Italian team, I'm sure the a lot of people would love that.

Oh! I thought that seat had gone, unless Domski has signed for DD again?
