A year of Honda domination ahead?

Interesting the times are faster than the race weekend last October but slower than the test there this time last year

It's not unknown for Rossi to sandbag!

He may well be working on getting the bike setup right rather than pushing for the fastest time. It's his first proper test of the GP11, so expect to see things improve over the next two tests.

Yes, you would expect the race times to be slower than test/qualifying as they carry more weight in fuel at the start and have less grip in the tyres at the end, so there's never the right combination of both.

As for last year's test times, let's take a look compared to the previous year... (see attachment) ... you can see that it's only Rossi who has not improved on his 2010 Sepang test time! Nicky Hayden has improved by nearly 1 second, which I think tells us that either the bike is getting better or Nicky is improving? Given Nicky's ability, I would say it was the bike.

Interestingly, Stoner has "only" improved on his 2010 time by 0.5sec, so not as big a jump as it first appears. Both Pedrosa (1.05sec) and Dovi (1.33sec) have improved by quite a jump, so maybe the Honda was slow last year?

The biggest jump is Simoncelli - nearly 2.5sec quicker!!

The front of the Desmosidici seems to have become more like a 70's smoker than a razor sharp racer for 2011. Aerodynamic is obviously not an obvious science. Make like look like a jet and it sill go faster. It is definitely more upright than in 2006.

Race fastest lap Jerez

Yam
2002 143.8 Ducati
2003 1.43.8
2004 1.43.8 Rossi 1st year
2005 1.40.596
2006 1.42.6 1.42.2
2007 1.40.9 1.41.4 800's
2008 140.19 1.41.3
2009 140.1 1.394
2010 1.39.7 139.9

143.8 - 139.7. Interesting to see what happens on the Ducati.
