Good performance from Cal Crutchlow

Looks a very thin field for 2012 when you take out the CRT bikes which appear to be hopelessly uncompetitive...

It's looking very positive for Rossi as he's heading in the right direction, just not the magic bullet we were all hoping for!

Pedrosa is usually pretty good at testing so I think this shows that Lorenzo is very much on top of his game right now and was not just riding on Rossi's coat-tails at Yamaha - if last year didn't confirm it enough!!

I'm pretty sure that as soon as Stoner gets on he'll blitz the lot though.

It's a long lap at Sepang and 5th fastest certainly looks more competitive than last year... just don't want to get my hopes up as there's been far too many false-dawns

I would imagine (hope?), with a new bike, there is much for Ducati to learn and much more to come? Probably more to come from Ducati than Honda/Yamaha for example?
